I casually mentioned to my grandparents i would not be squeezing out any grandkids from my lady parts (just to see what they would say) my perpetually level headed grandfather fucking lost it

and basically was under the impression that i have no choice in the matter, which was……well uncharacteristic. They said something about carrying on the family name, I then explained that the child in question would not have their name because we live in a patriarchal society, they seemed to ignore this, so now i’m really confused, did they want me to change my name to my mothers maiden name and force my would be husband to take my name?

If I ever came out as poly or anything else for that matter they would literally have a heart attack. The whole conversation was moot of course because by the time I would be in a fiscally sound position to have tiny humans they’d be dead.
