Public: When you put something in the net, it's there forever.
Tumblr: Challenge accepted!

 :lmao

On the one hand, it's just easier to do this than hope folks report the child porn/sexual abuse stuff that got them kicked off the app store but on the other hand it major sucks for the good ( for various definitions of good) content creators and the communities that already feel marginalized

I may have gotten through crippling depression once again, and this time, no suicide attempts.

The far left "Libtards" have moved to targeting porn. Well I mean porn has always been a moral target. But after MeToo movement the idea is all men are abusive rapists due to violent porn.

This is being coupled with the general new age idea that you should censor anything you find offensive with the general Gen Z idea that someone else should do the legwork. eg It's not my contributions that make Tumblr's atmosphere poisonous, it's Tumblr's.

It's a bad cycle, but I don't doubt for a minute porn will survive through.

Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

Did you miss the part where this all started due to the tumblr app getting kicked off of the app store due to some issues regarding child porn? https://techcrunch.com/2018/11/19/tumblr-booted-from-app-store-due-to-child-porn/

Good for you!  :cheers

SorO has a major kneejerk reaction when it comes to anything that looks remotely related to the political left.

You can pretty much just ignore his ranting.

Wasn't that like six months after Netflix's child porn accusation and like nine months after Craig's List banned it's escort list for that bill introduced in March? Hmm, when did the UK pass it's mandatory age-verification for porn, maybe I could list that or all of those sub bans on Reddit over the last year...

Yeah, I'm sure I totally forgot about Tumblr's app banning starting anything.

Nearly everyone turns into a Conservative at some point or they die trying. :p

My tinfoil hat tells me otherwise.

Google it, there has been a recent up swing in anti Internet porn, it started gaining some traction a few years ago. It comes and goes.

Yeah, last I checked there were some internet nannies trying to filter lolicon and pushing for an internet-wide ban on lolis, sexualized or not, and Japan just collectively went and said "Fuck you." That was a couple years ago or so.

Well there is also the UKs push for age verification to access porn online via some form of identification (and to a lesser extent when they banned a bunch of sex acts from being performed in pornography created within the country a few years back).

I wouldn't say it is directly connected, but some of the leftwing have contributed towards the environment to censor such content (be it for perceived evils or for public image), and certainly, the traditional right is fine with restricting such things as well.

Relating back to the Loli stuff, we had GAB do a site-wide ban on Lolis, with the announcement post subsequently getting spammed with lolis for a straight week until the site got ironically knocked off the web because people overreacted that a shooter had an account on the sight. That sparked a little conversation online in some places.
Japan aside (because it is going to do its own thing), in the west lolicon is illegal in quite a few countries (mainly European nanny states), and some outlets fine with most porn do ban such content (again, be it for perceived evils or for public image), though it is admittedly applied somewhat inconsistently (and pornhub being one of the biggest providers doesn't seem to care at all).
I hear many of the Tumblr artists are moving over to Newgrounds because that somehow still exists, but they are not found of Loli themselves.

Regardless I didnt see Tumblr having much going for it beyond being a place where degenerates shared porn. It might live on with the other communities that exist there but the attempt to appeal more broadly by banning porn will probably not work out for them I think, other platforms are just simply better.
Im really bad at what I do.
A+

Pornhub has already stepped up to take anyone in via an announcement from their twitter as for the big picture the company that owns Tumblr at the top of the food chain (Verizon Communications) has stated that tumblr just isn't a big deal to them at all.
