I Am Reverend Loveshade. Isn’t everyone? (Image is from the music video for “Black Hole Sun” performed by Soundgarden. No threat to its copyright is intended.)
If you don’t know, there’s a paranoid conspiracy theory that everyone who mentions Reverend Loveshade without grossly insulting him must be Reverend Loveshade.
And if you don’t know, almost nobody who doesn’t know me IRL believes my name. Is my name really Miley Spears? Yes. Is that the name I was born with? No.
I had to show my driver’s license to stay on Facebook when they had the “fake name purge.” I’ve posted my SCA membership card, PETA membership card, ASPCA membership card, ACLU membership card, and more online. When they accepted my SCA name (Ariel Lovechild) and device (with a pentacle and a mermaid), it threw out a precedent and set a new one here. I’m an admin at Discordia Wiki and SubGenius WIki and Peta Wiki and wrote featured articles at Uncyclopedia and Uncyclopedia (two different ones), and a Wikipedia editor.
I was accepted by Order of the Pineapple (so was Reverend Loveshade) and the Knights of Buh. There’s an article about a protest I did in Minnesota, my college career, and more online. See also this.
Who’s been accused of being Reverend Loveshade? Miley Spears, Pope Hilde, Adam Gorightly, Gypsie Skripto, Brenton Clutterbuck, Dr. Howland Owll, Dr. Howl, Alan Moore, Robert Anton Wilson, Alden Loveshade, Greg Hill, Kerry Thornley, Sheered Völva, S. John Ross, Richard Nixon. (Feel free to add to the list here if you think of someone else). I know three of these who really did write as Reverend Loveshade at one time or another, but I don’t think all of them did! And some of them were accused after they were dead!
One of the people on that list got served a certified legal notice from my family, then posted online that he was wrong about me being an prostitute and I was not Reverend Loveshade.
But if they want me to be Reverend Loveshade, fine. I Am Reverend Loveshade. Isn’t everyone?
So spread the word! Post that you’re Reverend Loveshade, or that somebody else is Reverend Loveshade. Make a list!
