Facebook discriminating against Gays

Yes it is.

It would appear that if you have that surname and attempt to create an account, Facebook responds "Please enter a legitimate name". I did some searching and there are people of that surname on the site, so maybe this is a new development.

So it's not just Gay kiwis being discriminated against here? We'd hate for Austrlain gays to get a better deal than ours.

It's not just the gays. It's Lords too. I had to sign up using my middle name as my surname instead.

Damon Lord.

Well I never. I expect Jack 'Steve McGarrett' Lord would have said "Book 'em Danno".....

Meanwhile you have my sympathies.
