I feel like I'd need a googler's anonymous to help get me off google. :P (The irony). But seriously, it would be so difficult in order to walk away from all of it. It'll take more time/thought before I could do such a thing.
Thank you for sharing your post - you make some really good points. Personally I think we should be allowed to self-identify however we choose regardless of whatever "legal name" we have been branded with (even for those who aren't necessarily harmed by using their name - I think it's a freedom we should all be able to practice online). For that reason, I am very disturbed by this policy.
I think there's a good chance I will at the very least delete my G+ account. As for the rest of google? IDK yet. Using the same reasoning as I am against google, I feel like I should consider closing my facebook account as well... I don't mind disclosing my identity there, but I don't agree that others cannot. It's the same on G+ - I use my real identity there, but I support the right to choose your own identity. (
