Tumblr is banning all adult content

Highlight from their definition of adult content: "female-presenting nipples"

@Shonalika @Gargron Female nipples are pink, male nipples are blue, obvs.

@Gargron Ha! Somebody should tell Tumblr that just because you drain out the turds, doesn't mean people won't still identify it as a sewer.

@Gargron Just censor female nipples with those of a male and you're good to go 😂

@Gargron I guess we now know how big a source of revenue were their iOS ads.


So Tumblr wants to reduce the amount of contents by approximately 40 to 50%?

@starlocke @Gargron hillariously, they’ve actually written in an exception to the ‘female presenting nipples’ ban JUST for that: “Written content such as erotica, nudity related to political or newsworthy speech, and nudity found in art, such as sculptures and illustrations, are also stuff that can be freely posted on Tumblr.”

@Gargron Glad I stopped using Tumblr now. At first it was just on principle, now I know there's no point.

@Gargron TUMBLR: Oh no why is there so much porn?!
Us: well, it's your main userbase: kinksters, fanartists, furries...
TUMBLR: NO PORN, more advertisers
Us: *wander off to a new website*
TUMBLR: Oh no, why do we have so few active users?!

@Gargron isn’t that like 90% of their user base and traffic? Guess they are deciding to close their doors lol.

@Gargron i read their article and barely nothing will change i think.(very useful to do dis) seems like just some routines to not scare shareholders

@Gargron ugh, all the more reason to make the switch i suppose

@Gargron Ohho goodie... not the first time when tumblr gets hostile to its users and environment.


if someone tapes a photo of a man's nipple over their nipple, does that make it a male-presenting nipple?

@Gargron Now someone need to make a tumblr federated software 😏

@Gargron I' just joined. Looking for tumblr alternatives cause.. I need my nsfw art. Hoping things work out XD

@Gargron Male nipples on a sumo wrestler look much the same 😎

@Gargron Is there an easy way to export tumblr content into a Mastodon instance?

(I have never even used tumblr so I don’t know about its exporting options)
