FORTUNE - Dec 23 - Earlier this month, OKCupid announced it would ask users go by their real names. It was a move meant to control harassment and promote community on the platform, but not everyone was excited about the idea. Some users think that the change will have the opposite effect and make it easier for men, in particular, to harass women and find them off of the platform. It's also problematic for trans individuals and other marginalized groups. After a bit of backlash for the OKCupid community, this week the site backtracked, saying that users don't have to use their legal name, and instead could use the name, nickname, or initials they want to be known as on OKCupid.
