Dear Facebook

Hello Lovelies! This letter is a very powerful one and there’s not much I can add to it. My only issue is that there is no way that I know of that Facebook can be sure the name you are using is your own, unless they ask for a valid ID and/or send someone to your house to make sure you are who you claim to be online. Even I have had two accounts, but I let the first one die away. I don’t remember Facebook going to any extensive length to verify my identity.

I’d love to hear what any of you have to say about this letter.

Dear Facebook: This is why your new ‘real name’ policy hurts queers like me
