Facebook is putting drag queens in danger by forcing them to use their real names

Facebook should read up on its queer history: You never want to mess with drag queens.
Claiming the use of legal names will “keep our community safe,” Facebook has begun shutting down the profiles of individuals who do not to use their “real” or legal names when creating and logging into their accounts. The new requirement is drawing the ire of many in the LGBT community who argue it is a policing tactic that could be harmful to both artistic and queer communities.

Not even just drag queens. Lots of people don’t go by their legal names, and forcing everyone to identify themselves that way is a huge invasion of privacy. Not every transgender person is a drag queen who can switch to a fan page. This messes with people’s safety in so many ways.
