Situation Update – Facebook backtracks on it’s “Real Name” policy

An important update on the Facebook “Real Names” Policy

“Facebook has apologized to the LGBT community for attempting to force them to use their “real” names on the social media service – a newly enforced policy that has caused uproar in the past few weeks.”

“The world’s largest social network has heard from people such as drag queens and kings, transgender people, musicians, and friends and family of those affected. They objected to the company’s move to take away their choice over what name to use on their accounts.”

Celebrate the 15th Annual Bisexuality Day

bisexual_ribbon

Since it’s inception in 1999, this day is a call for bisexual people and their families, friends and supporters to recognize and celebrate bisexuality, bisexual history, bisexual community and culture, and the bisexual people in their lives.

This celebration of bisexuality in particular, as opposed to general LGBT events, was conceived as a response to the prejudice and marginalization of the bisexual persons by some in both the straight and greater LGBT communities.

Facebook’s “Real Name” policy is dangerous

Facebook-Dislike

“Facebook has begun vigorous enforcement of its “name policy,” requiring all users of the social network to provide their real names—those “listed on your credit card, driver’s license or student ID.” The policy is not new—Facebook has long asked for users’ “real names” at registration—but it has come under new fire after Facebook disabled the profile of San Francisco LGBT activist and drag queen Sister Roma last week, forcing her to post under her legal name “Michael Williams.” ”

“The social media outrage was almost immediate. An online petition on Change.org demanding Facebook change its policy has already garnered 18,300 signatures. Today, Facebook representatives met with members of the drag and LGBT communities in San Francisco. Regardless of the outcome of today’s meeting at Facebook HQ, (I’m pessimistic considering the protesters only got to meet with Facebook’s “PR and Pride” teams), these people’s lives have already been impacted by Facebook’s enforcement policy.”

Article: Retired Dominatrix escorted out of Canadian Senate meeting

Retired dominatrix Terri-Jean Bedford was escorted by security out of a Senate committee meeting after refusing to heed the chair’s warning that her allotted speaking time had run out — but not before threatening to make politicians “forget about Mike Duffy.

The woman who won a Supreme Court challenge to Canada’s prostitution laws told committee members that the government’s proposal to criminalize buyers of sex would “make Canada the laughingstock of the world.

Article: Two Spirits, One Struggle

As a native myself, I found this to be an insightful introductory article to those who may be unaware of the struggles facing the Two-Spirited peoples of Native American culture and community.

“Shortly after coming out, dancer Tyler-Alan Jacobs was beaten so badly that his right eye was dislodged and the side of his face was caved in. Jacobs woke up in the hospital to the sight of his father leaving the room; his father couldn’t bear to look at him.

The pain was excruciating, and the $30,000 of reconstructive surgery would leave still-visible scars, but the fact that Jacobs had grown up with his attackers made the abuse even harder to move past.

Jacobs, 29, is one of a few hundred Vancouverites that identify as two-spirit – a First Nations term for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, other gendered, and third/fourth gendered individuals.”

According to the National Aboriginal Health Organization, two-spirited people are more likely to experience violence than heterosexual First Nations and they are twice as likely to experience assault (including physical assault, sexual assault, and assault with a weapon) than LGBT people in the general population.
