Here we go again  
A social network cannot enforce a Real Names policy consistently because nobody wants to sign up for a virtual police state. One big reason Google + lost to Facebook is that it pretended harder. Not of course leaving well enough alone, Facebook has decided to make its own pretense a teense more convincing by picking on targets of opportunity: people whose Facebook names don't match the gender they're supposed to be. (Bad laws are always enforced against the most obviously defenseless.) Queerty has the story.

I don't know if I fly beneath the radar or what, but I have three fake FB accts. It's just not that hard.

I know a psychiatrist who uses a fake name on FB for security reasons. But he's not a drag queen, so apparently it's OK.
