Andrew ordered us credit cards from our joint bank acct (under each of our OWN names), and this is what I got. F'ing patriarchy wins again. #fb

Ah no - what you do is you max it out and when they want the money you politely explain that you are not, and never have been jessica golis but you'e heard there might be a woman of that name living in australia...
ZOMG! Send it back....OR if they're going to be like that, demand that they issue the credit cards in the name of Mr. and Ms. Jessica Valenti, and when they get all huffy explain that in 2009, Mrs. Him is as ludicrous as Mr. Her in terms of bank cards? Lo
Fuck that! Send it back!
You rock! Loved "Full Frontal Feminism." I know you won't take this lying down, Ms. Valenti.
way - they told her she "had to" sign it with her "new" name.
yeah, this type of thing is horribly common. my sister just got married and kept her name, and many people didn't realize this and wrote out checks to her using her "new" (incorrect) last name. one bank would not allow her to cash a check written out this
lol oh dear. I've had similar stuff with my bank back home where they leave out my mom's half of my hyphenated name unless I explicitly tell them not to.
