Congratulations to Tumblr, on taking a stand against the only thing people still go on the social media website for. Yes it's true, Tumblr is banning adult content on its platform on December 17 and Millennials are big mad over it:

What's the point of Tumblr otherwise?We're not really mad because that site is absolute garbage and everyone on there needs to be seen by a psychiatrist but...the porn was pretty quality.
It’s because they don’t have an algorithm to weed out original child pornography though. However, this will kill the app because there is no point in Tumblr but porn & adult content.

"Tumblr will ban adult content from the platform starting Dec. 17, the company announced. This includes photos, illustrations, videos and GIFs of sexual acts, as well as full-frontal genitalia and female-presenting nipples. This change will also get rid of Tumblr’s Safe Mode, the search filter designed to purge NSFW content from a query." According to an article published by PolygonIt'll literally close down over night. Tumblr banning NSFW content is like Facebook banning baby photos and poorly made political memes.
The Negative Effects of The Tumblr PurgeI'm not really mad because that site is absolute garbage and everyone on there needs to be seen by a psychiatrist but...the porn was pretty quality. My cousin said if anything happenes to him. The first thing I do is to delete his Tumblr. I guess I don't have to know.

I remember when AOL banned all mention of "breasts" which ended both the Breast Cancer Survivor's Group and deleted every last chicken breast recipe. You couldn't even say you were keeping abreast of the news on AOL. No one ever learns, do they?
Somebody on here asked what Tumblr was. They were told " a porn site that just banned porn".
It's going to effect a lot of artists. Tumblr was the go to for alternative art, especially for younger LGBT folk. A very poor business decision tumblr's bottom line will soon regret.
