The Case With Tumblr

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 4, 2018, 3:27 PM
There is a huge outcry against Tumblr's decision to censor quote on quote "adult" content as a result of the monopoly that is Apple. Some are even saying that Tumblr will evolve into a goody goody southern christian community as a result of this. Me? I don't think so. Tumblr is alienating a huge portion of its fanbase but I doubt the site will become a conservative religious haven after this. But aside from that, it's still a damaging decision on the part of the staff. Personally, I get uncomfortable looking at imagery that is explicit to the point where it's tasteless but I do have respect for adult content so long as it's done tastefully and done well. I've even posted a few NSFW things myself on tumblr but this was usually pretty rare. What I like about deviantart is there's a nice compromise for this stuff. You can post more mature content so long as you flag it and even then there are fair boundaries that explain what is ok and what is going too far. Tumblr is just getting rid of all mature content without any sort of compromise and it's going to kill the website fanbase. I can say that there is plenty of content on tumblr that belongs in the dark web or should be removed completely because of how deplorable it is(Nazis, homophobia, racism, sexism, ableism, child porn...) but the stuff that tumblr is willy nilly getting rid of is not.  stuff like artistic nudity(yes that includes fanart) and tasteful presentation of things like sex and intimacy are important and people should be allowed to express this stuff there. There's one NSFW artist that I do have respect for, Nala1588. Her blog is pretty explicit and depicts some pretty erotic imagery but it's done so creatively that honestly, as long as she flags this stuff as mature and tumblr came up with a compromise, she should be allowed to draw and post what she wants. But no, there's no middle ground, there's no compromise, there's no resolution with the porn bot problem or the white supremacy problem, IT'S JUST TUMBLR GIVING INTO BIG BUSINESS AND THEY SUCK AT IT LIKE EVERYTHING IN THIS SITUATION SUCKS!!..,ok I'm cool now. *sighs* I'm going to be honest, I'm not leaving tumblr because it's the one site where I've actually managed to develop a bit of a fanbase and I do like the unique blogging style but unlike tumblr, I'm willing to make a compromise. I'm going to participate in the tumblr log off day which will take place on december 17th because tumblr's decision is definitely wrong and tasteless. Logging off will give them less ad revenue and hopefully will get the message across that giving into big business is ultimately the wrong thing to do. If tumblr doesn't listen to us, then it's just sinking its own ship and I'm willing to go down with it. Well if you ask me if tumblr has any freedom of expression to offer at this point, I say woof. 

Of course this is my take on it and if you feel different, that's fine. This has been FireNationPhoenix...and now i'm going to get a coffee

I'm always happy to send llamas to anyone who sends them to me but please refrain from thanking me for llamas because me sending one to you is my thank you.

Play Pokemon Go? Live in Chicago? I'd be happy to coordinate raids with you on discord

I don't always follow back but I will always block back and I never unblock unless I know for sure that I can trust you to not do whatever you did to offend me again. If you follow me, I follow back, and you decide to unfollow me, I'll unfollow you promptly.

Feel free to watch me but no guarantees of a watch back though unless I get to know you a bit better:shrug:. Also keep in mind that if I follow you back and you unfollow me, i'll unfollow you back as I don't want to deal with drama. Do not watch me if you are going to beg for a watch back, that will result in a block. If you are the type that does not like direct people or people that will speak their mind openly, I suggest not watching me because this account is NOT for the faint of heart XD. Sometimes my jokes are NSFW as well as my art so watch with discretion if you are 16 and under. A lot of my artwork depicts gay/lesbian pairings and themes, if you don't support that and don't want to agree to disagree, find another account. I am not here to discuss politics unless it's current news so please do not flock here to confront me on politics. If I have blocked you or you personally don't get along with me but are currently a member of ANY of my groups, I do recommend you leave because I don't want drama in my groups. If you can handle what I've mentioned, then welcome to my little corner of the internet :wave:
