Apparenlty you’re allowed to be Hitler, but don’t even try being Gay on social networking site Facebook. reports:

It’s been revealed that the popular website – which boasts it has over 30 million members from around the world – does not allow people with the common Anglo Saxon surname Gay to join, assuming it is not a legitimate name.

After a story in New Zealand’s Dominion Post about 30-year-old Rowena Gay, who was denied entry to site because of her last name, undertook a test and found a person with the last name Gay was indeed not allowed to join.

“Please enter a legitimate name,” the website stated during our attempt. And while the website refused Gay, it had no problem allowing us to join with the last name Hitler.

What are you doing Facebook!? I can be Hitler but not Gay? Shame on you Facebook, shame!
