I don't want to say this will kill Tumblr but this is making it very difficult to not say that.
Painful to read this bullshit about caring about art, sex positivity, and your sexuality while doing this

It is well known Tumblr is used by underage girls who enjoy posting risqué pictures of themselves, I think this is likely the only way Tumblr saw it possible to reduce this usage on their site. Still, rip Tumblr.
sometimes I forget that I'm probably the only person here that doesn't like sexual content.
sometimes I wish we could still buy other people titles so they wouldn't forget things

Even then, I have a blog where I shy away from anything NSFW, but I'm certain that the majority of people who follow me have a sizable amount of risque, lewd, and/or saucy stuff plastering their dashboards between all of my shitposts.

true. "furry" is among those tags. I just feel that it's odd that most everyone's reaction to this is "how dare tumblr not want porn on their platform," instead of "this is an incredibly ham-fisted response by tumblr that is blatantly going to have further-reaching consequences than they intend".
My reasons to visit Tumblr have just dropped to zero.
holy shit wait, you mean to say that there was stuff on tumblr beyond porn?????

is there something shameful about not caring for sexual content?
It's more like no one really cares so why bother bringing it up.
can people only share their opinion if it is the majority-held opinion?
it's funny, i've never posted nsfw content in my life but this still miffs me because now there's a mass exodus from the place i post art. now where do i go?
