Personally speaking, my answer would be, NO (!), do not change the name. Alice Sheldon should not be judged on one desperate action after a lifetime of love & devotion. Let it be...๐Ÿ˜‘

Where "one desperate action" was also known as "premeditated murder of a helpless victim". And people are judged all the time for doing similar things, if it happens they don't also kill themseves. You might have heard of them. They're called "convicted murderers".

Is that judgement the EQUIVALENT of a lifetime of willing sexist behavior and racism in the service of white privilege? I'm willing to forgive her. Are you? Probably not...๐Ÿ˜•
