Hosting child porn is a legal nightmare (and should be) and thus the staff is protecting Tumblr as a whole. Anyone who can't get along without their porn GIFs can find more suitable places -- like porn sites.

The problem is that tumblr was an accessible place for it
Artists and models could easily post content and gain feedback on the platform, all while being easy to consume

Yeah, I know. I've had an account there (a non-porn one) for about six or seven years.

What it really needs is better tagging and better ways to search for really bad content.

But... we'll see. It's not likely to affect the RPs I do there, or the fanfic, or the videogaming stuff, or the Sander Sides, or.....

Stupid move. Adult content is one of the few good things about that site, along with all the comfy furniture porn and uplifting pastel doodles.

Honestly, Tumblr is a very silly place, but that's kind of why I love it.

Back when I was semi-active in it, you could get a dashboard full of cutesy drawings with wholesome messages, beautiful photos of envy-inducing bookcase-bunk-bed hybrids, a very LGBT+ friendly sex ed blog, a former gay pornstar and gamer mid-transition who posted a bunch of Dark Souls porn...

i suppose the problem is the question of what is consent and what isn't.

but also, the mood swings of political culture.

of course you know, any envelope, someone, lots of someones, are going to try pushing those edges.

trying to hold someone accountable for what someone else does is a bit of contrary logic too.

if they've taken a suicidal course by taking what is the only safe course for themselves, it isn't them that i entirely blame.

nor is most of what is concidered 'adult content' any particularly great loss.

but then again, most of the great works of art, and a good many mostly innocent ones, can also be construed as 'adult content'.

rather then getting bitter and whinning about it, the thing is, culture is the statistical sum of all of us, sooooo ...

the price of maybe some sectors complaining too much?
truth isn't what i say. isn't what you say. isn't what anybody says. truth is what is there, when no one is saying anything.

99.9% of the Internet, I guess.

Though Tumblr was probably the least likely of mainstream porn sites to give your computer a virus.

Tumblr's SJW brigades are more of a right-wing fantasy than real. A bunch of teenagers with dark purple lipstick are not a threat to Western civilization. They were amusing to laugh at, though.
We are free to believe that this is the century of authority, a century tending to the right, a Fascist century. If the XIXth century was the century of the individual (liberalism implies individualism) we are free to believe that this is the "collective" century, and therefore the century of the State.

Nah, they'll just migrate elsewhere like they did when Livejournal pissed 'em off, just like when Quizilla pissed 'em off, just like when FFN pissed 'em off (while also being somewhat of the anomaly in that it survived pissing them off). Fandom's gonna fandom, it is not so readily slain.

The other thing is, apparently, its automoderation is completely ineffective and incompetent. People (myself included, admittedly), have complained about some moderation decisions here, but apparently, on Tumblr, the bot mods are even worse, falsely flagging things that are supposed to be kosher (even the staff's own post about the new policy change).

Or the other perfectly fine and good posts that obviously are not porn.

And, apparently, unlike with human mods, there's no way to appeal a bad ruling.

So, yeah. There's absolutely no reason to feel optimistic about the future of Tumblr.

Those SJW columns make for lovely additions to the cringe compilations, but they are otherwise harmless.
