Hi, something important’s been recently brought to my attention.
I’m a Filipino, and we need your help. I’m also just learning more about this now but I wanted to share and reach out. We’re urging our current President to veto this bill.
NOTE: Kindly correct me if I’ve mentioned anything wrong in here/accidentally added misinformation btw.
Basically, if this bill was to be approved, we’ll be required to use our REAL NAMES in all social media platforms.
And no, this won’t eliminate cybercrime or make anything any better. If anything, it jeopardizes our internet safety.
We only have nine days until our privacy and anonymity online is lost. This is serious. That means pen names, online aliases, and more will be illegal. It’s a what-the-fuck situation so we could use your responses and help by signal boosting this post and other posts related to this.
While I do not mind letting some friends i’ve met here know more about me, I do NOT want my full name in display for all strangers to see just as nobody would parade their damn name in a public space filled with strangers.

here’s a link to the change.org petition with more information in the description.
^ and here’s a link to more information on the issue.
i value my privacy and i’ve always been encouraging having a safe space online with whomever people i meet here. pen names and aliases shouldn’t be considered criminal. we’re only people who want to be on social media for our own reasons and we deserve our anonymity and our safety.
Q: What can I do to help?
A: Sign the petitions, spread awareness about it and reblog posts related to this to make sure this issue does not go unnoticed. It would help us a lot.
