Help FJ Get Reinstated on Facebook (#FJIsReal) ACTION: 7/31/15 12:00pm EST)

Hey hey hey good people

Someone reported me on Facebook for not using a “real” name. That’s really the only way they catch onto folks like this. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was an organized effort by some folks.

If you go to my page on Facebook, you’ll see this:

I have about 3,100 friends on Facebook, many of whom do not use Twitter. Yes, I have a fan page, but my FB page has been used for more personal, long-form engagement than Twitter allows. I’m also a part of community groups, networking groups, and other empowerment groups.

I also used Facebook, primarily, to organize #NMOS14 (which took place on August 14, 2014). I’m currently organizing the Women’s Freedom Conference (October 25, 2015) and Facebook is going to be essential for engagement.

When I log in, this is what I see:

According to FB’s policy, you have to use a name that people know you as in “real life”. This has had a negative impact on so many people, including transgender people and indigenous Native people.

Well, most of you know me as Feminista Jones and have many ways to prove that don’t require me “proving” it. For the record, I do have qualifying documents that could prove my FJ identity, but that really isn’t the point. There is way more to this than that. I understand if you think I’m being stubborn, but I’m not about that life.

I’m asking for your help. Here are some ways you can help me:

Via Facebook:

1. Log into your account. Go to the upper right corner and open the admin tab. Select “Report A Problem”

2. Select Login

3. Send this message:

Facebook has suspended the user Feminista Jones (Facebook.com/FeministaJones) because someone reported her name as not being her real identity.

A quick Google search of “Feminista Jones” will pull up several pages of articles written by and about her, in various international publications. She is also a published author who regularly appears on live segments such as Huffington Post Live as “Feminista Jones”.

Feminista Jones is a social justice organizer and uses Facebook as a platform to engage people in work to improve the lives of many around the country and world. Suspending her page is not only unfair, it is laden with bias, as there are millions of “fake names” that are allowed to go unchecked.

I urge you to reinstate user Feminista Jones immediately, as she is no harm to anyone, has never been abusive towards any users, and uses Facebook to engage many communities to make the world a better place.

Sincerely,
(your name)

Via Twitter:

On Friday July 31, 2015 at 12:00PM EST/ 9:00AM PT, join me in a Twitter storm to inundate the @Facebook account with proof that I’m real. Use the #FJIsReal hashtag and share links to my articles, links to my TV appearances, pictures of you holding my book, etc. Anything that has my name on it.

Here are some images and links you can use:

Examples of tweets:

Hey @Facebook, #FJIsReal! Reinstate her page now! Facebook.com/FeministaJones (add link or picture of my book, screenshot of me on a show with my name, etc)

Hey @Facebook, Feminista Jones is not a fake, abusive account. #FJIsReal (add link or picture of my book, screenshot of me on a show with my name, etc)

Or make up your own, but include “@Facebook” and #FJIsReal

**I prefer you NOT include my Twitter handle so that I’m not inundated with tweets.**

You can also do the same on Facebook and tag Facebook in them at the same time.

You can finally send an email to this address info+vgvnfvs.aea2d65o77gco@support.facebook.com with the same message. It has to all happen at the same time, so if we could do it at 12:00pm EST, that would be great.

SUBJ: Reinstate Use Feminista Jones

Facebook has suspended the user Feminista Jones (Facebook.com/FeministaJones) for allegedly having a “fake” name.

A quick Google search of “Feminista Jones” will pull up several pages of articles written by and about her, in various international publications. She is also a published author who regularly appears on live segments such as Huffington Post Live as “Feminista Jones”.

Feminista Jones is a social justice organizer and uses Facebook as a platform to engage people in work to improve the lives of many around the country and world. Suspending her page is not only unfair, it is laden with bias, as there are millions of “fake names” that are allowed to go unchecked.

Thank you! Let’s see what we can do!

 

Feminista Jones on the @CombatJack Show (July 2015)

cjshow

Hey hey hey beloveds

I was invited to join Combat Jack and Premium Pete for a great conversation about, well, everything!

We discuss Push The Button (and BDSM/Kink), mental health and social work, women in hip-hop music and culture, activism and social justice work, divorce and co-parenting, and of course, sex and sexuality.

The response has been phenomenal! Glad to have a lot of new supporters and readers, and very happy a lot of you picked up a copy of the book!

The best part? A lot of brothers hit me up with love and respect and said the things I said helped them change their minds about feminism, sexism, violence against women, etc. Many said they were going to be more conscious of their words and behaviors and be more supportive of sisters. That’s love!

If you can, check it out. Tens of thousands of listen at time of publishing. Dopeness!

My Weekly Periscope Chats Are What’s Missing From Your Life

ms2

Hello, hello, hello!

I want to tell you about a new platform on which I can connect with all of YOU wonderful people on a more regular basis: Periscope!

I started doing these sporadic chats a while back and decided to make them a weekly thing because 1) I no longer have a podcast and 2) I no longer make YouTube videos in the style that I used to. When I discovered this app, I realized it could work to help me connect with you good people in REAL time.

Catch my witter feed at 10:00 p.m. EST on Wednesdays for the good stuff for the week.

My most recent chat addressed the hullabaloo involving me, Amy Schumer, and a random tweeter who used her account to force engagement between me, Schumer, and Schumer’s White supremacist fans.

Awesome.

Unfortunately, the exchange made several news outlets and nothing was the same. I addressed it via Periscope and got to chat it up with my supporters in “FJ Discusses The Schumockery“.

They expire, so you have to catch them fast!!

“Born Free”– A New Short Story by Feminista Jones

BornFreeSmall

From May 31 to June 1, 1921, Greenwood, a district of Tulsa, Oklahoma (also known as “Black Wall Street”) was overtaken by riots  that broke out as residents rebelled against racist terrorism. Lives were forever changed, in ways regrettably untold.

“Born Free” is the story of one young person’s journey of survival and transformation as the possibility of freedom becomes reality in unexpected ways.

For more information on the Tulsa Riots of 1921, read more at EBONY.com

“Born Free” is dedicated to the victims of the shooting at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC on June 17, 2015.

Thank you for supporting independent Black women writers.



About “Born Free”:I look for ways to challenge myself as a writer and came across a great opportunity to do so. I saw a call for the Hidden Youth Anthology and figured, “Hey, why not submit something?” I began writing “Born Free” over 6 months ago. I walked away from it and came back several times. I didn’t want to rush and I wanted to let the characters guide me. Unfortunately, when I reviewed the submission guidelines, I missed one of the KEY elements required for the story. I was crushed. I felt like a failure— for 5 whole seconds. Then I realized I could write another story for the anthology and release this as a stand alone story.So, here we are.Enjoy!XOXO,

FJLOGO1
