Due to the crack-down of Facebook on those of us with non-traditional names (ie, stage names, drag names, trans names, those of us trying to protect our selves from stalkers, abuse, etc) my stage name account was suspended pending “verification.”
One of two ways this could have happened:
1) Someone reported me as being “fake.” (Rude. malicious. Bad, no cookie.)
2) My page has gotten too “popular” and was investigated.
“Why” doesn’t really matter any more, honestly. What matters is that I am on the brink of losing 5 years worth of documented evidence of my blood, sweat, tears and hard work. About to lose the free platform of social media wherein I do all of my networking. (I’m a “starving artist” archetype here, free beats just about anything.)
So, on the advice of the estimable Vernita, I registered as an LLC.
For the next 365 days, Silver Kitsune legally exists. She/I is/am a real person/business. We’ll see if it works.
For the princely sum of $25, I bought myself.
