Over the weekend, Facebook locked me out of my Sister account due to their naming policy. Here is my response:
Dear Jesse, or whoever, at Facebook:
I am a Sister of Perpetual Indulgence. If you haven’t heard of them, look them up. It’s a volunteer non-profit organization that primarily serves the LGBT community.
Obviously, Ann Wenita Morelove is not the name I go by in other areas of my life. However, it will be a name I, and others, will miss on Facebook if it is not reinstated.
Years ago, I tried using a page instead of a profile. This did not suit my needs. Sister Roma of San Francisco argued all of this, and more, with employees at Facebook, and I thought Facebook had altered it’s naming policy as a result. Apparently I was mistaken.
I would like to have my profile reinstated. But if not, I spend too much time on Facebook as it is, on both my accounts. Working without Facebook will be a pain, but life will go on.
If you can reinstate Ann Wenita Morelove on Facebook, awesome! But if not, it was fun (and sometimes useful) while it lasted.
