My account was flagged for my name “Gypsie Traveler”. I have a few incredibly valid reasons for choosing this name. Firstly, I am an artist and a writer. Gypsie Traveler is my pseudonym. On my profile notes, you’ll find a few diff*rents notes I have written, all signed Gypsie Traveler. Albeit, it’s only on a computer, i can assure you, this is how I sign my writings and my artwork. I was robbed in early November last year of everything I own - artworks included. I have no new pieces to photograph and show you. Yet. **Secondly, I have been hiding from an incredibly abusive family for over **years. They raped, beaten, and almost killed me. They still have never found me due to the fact that I regularly change my name on my user profiles. Please understand, my safety may be at stake if I reveal my name. Not just physical, but emotional and mental as well. There was never any charges laid, and so my family remains free and capable of hurting me again. I want to have a slightly more normal life without hiding all of the time. I should still be able to participate in the same activities as the general public, shouldn't I? Isolating me is what my abusers wanted to accomplish. By changing my name and talking about my abuse, I have systematically taken away that power they had over my life. With Facebook, I’ve been able to connect with so many people all o we the world who have helped me to regain my confidence, as well as my life. **From what I understand, my family does not actively look for me, however that may be directly related to the fact that they are blocked from my profile. Although, I do have them blocked, it would be impossible to know and block everyone that they associate with. For that reason, I would like to be able to keep my name different on my profile from what is shown on my ID. I’ve only submitted photos with my name blocked out, as I am not comfortable at all with being in this position and being forced to publicly display my name, when it could potentially open me up to new attacks. I have worked over **years in therapy to get a hold of myself in my mind. I cannot invite the possibility of attacks to my person. Even if only in message form, mental and emotional abuse from bullying can seriously damage all the work I’ve done and the fragile ground I stand on still.**As per Facebook rules, I DID include my real name in my profile, but I made it hidden so that I cannot be searched that way. I have done my best to adhere to fb policy rules, considering keeping my safety a priority. I am happy to change to a more ‘normal’ name, but I will not use my real name. **If this isn’t good enough then my profile will have to be shut down as I won’t be agreeing to post my name publicly, under any circumstances. I would appreciate the ability to access my profile for a few more days to download my important photos please. **Gypsie Traveler
