I no longer feel comfortable putting my real face on the internet. Am I allowed to upload an anime picture that looks a little like me?

Yup, you can have anime as your profile picture.

You can anything as your profile picture as long as it is not pornography or offensive

You can't steal other peoples' pictures claiming to be them

There is a fine line between deception and just having a person as your avatar. For example some people have well known celebrities as their profile picture and no one complains about that. If someone from say New Zealand has a picture of a lesser known actress as their profile picture they shouldn't be forced to take it down because you don't know them.

Really theoretically no picture anyone posts should be considered authentic. Countless times people have hidden their true identities posting seemingly authentic pictures. Anyone with half a brain can reverse search a picture and know its not real. It just doesn't necessarily mean they're trying to be sneaky.
