Whether you voted for her or not, the United States now has the first female Vice President in office, Kamala Harris. Because of this, we’re starting to see the age old commentary arise that typically comes with a Woman’s success; the questioning and accusations of her of sleeping her way to the top. But why? Why is it that a Woman can’t just be successful on her own? Why is it that her success has to give credit to a man? This question is a heated one so let’s dive in.
Let’s face it, dating a man with a kid or kids is not an easy thing to take on. Everyone’s story is different whether he has a very healthy co-parenting schedule with the mother of his child(ren) or he has a toxic one.

Or is it because they’re genuinely interested? Regardless of what the reason may be, here is why you should stop asking that question and why I don’t particularly enjoy being asked it myself.
This has always been a question in my mind for most of my adult life and now with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez being called a “fucking bitch” on the steps of our Nation’s capital, there is no better time than now to address this issue.
We all know the age old tale that if you’re getting married, as the Woman, you change your last name. But do we even know why we do it? Is it because of tradition? Etiquette? To please our future husband and our families?
