Hyphenated last names became a thing when feminists determined they were going to remove themselves from the male-dominated last naming convention within marriages and maintain their last name equality by keeping both partner’s last names with a hyphen.
But what happens when a feminist marries someone with the same last name?
Do they just say it twice, like “Clayton-Clayton?” Or do they just leave it up to people’s imaginations to decide who won the battle?
I wouldn’t think so, because most people, being oppressors themselves, would assume it was the male’s “Clayton.”
Or, perhaps they would just call it all off and find another woman.
