What is in a title?
Each week on “Ask Code change,” we tackle your trickiest questions regarding competition. This time around, we are unpacking that old nursery rhyme: First comes love, then comes a discussion that is heated of bias, then comes a child in an infant carriage.
Katie from Wilmington, Del., asks:
My boyfriend is Mexican and I also have always been white, and we also have begun marriage that is discussing. We floated the notion of taking their final title, but he had been strongly against it. He does not want a surname that is obviously latinothink: Lopez or Garcia) to influence me negatively via unconscious bias, like once I make an application for a work. I could appreciate where he is originating from, but let me share a true title with him. Seriously, it is mostly because my mother has an alternate name that is last mine, and growing up, that caused some problems with college and insurance coverage.
