No Mohr Cox for Jay

12/26/2008 4:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

In mildly emasculating yet quite hysterical court papers, Jay Mohr is asking to have his wife's last name legally added to his own. Jay Mohr will now forever be known as Jon Ferguson Cox Mohr.

Usually people add the new name to the end, but then he would have been Mohr Cox -- and, well ... that would just be wrong.

why is it emasculating? for years women have had to relinquish their names to take their husbands'. i think it is a showing of refreshing equality that a man, especially one in the public eye, would voluntarily take his wife's name instead. a marriage should be a partnership, with either partner having the equal and equally acceptable right to take whichever name they want. i think it's unfortunate that men have to appeal to the court system in making that choice, obviously showing how we're still not there yet in realizing that a woman taking a man's name is an outdated practice, the historical foundations of which were grounded in sexist principles. now it's just become a matter of unconscious and un-reflective practice. bravo jay mohr for choosing to think differently.
