What's in a name?

Have you ever had to lie on the Visa Waiver Form on the way in to the US? Have you ever been known by any other name?

Yes, yes I have. What is a name? Something solid, dictated to you by your parents, by The State, by yourself? What does it have to do with your identity anyway? You are not your name.

Getting another name is easy. Nothing is set in stone. Who I choose to be is who I choose to be. Luckily, it is (almost) still up to Them to prove who I am, not me to prove to Them who I am.

The revolution will not be name-tagged.
