Anyone still uses it? It's comfy these days and you don't easily get banned for expressing your opinions and views.

Post-porn tumblr is far better than it used to be. The big ban drove most moids off the platform, which only ended up making the site better.

I heard that some artists are coming back to it and it made me so happy. I still think it's the best platform to post art.

haahaha if only this were fucking true
sorry, but they are still very much there in large numbers, as with everywhere else on this god damn internet
if you were an artist, you would see it

i use it if i ever feel like looking at some nice aesthetic posts, art inspiration, fashion, etc. i don’t follow any people who post many text posts so it’s nice to see the media without the social, like pinterest. sometimes if i feel sad i’ll just search for cute animals in the tags lol. although one time in the bunny tag there was a girl wearing bunny lingerie promoting her OF or something and i got really mad. i don’t usually mind seeing porn since i’ve been on the internet forever and it’s a given but if i am in a sad mood where i just wanna look at something cute it makes me want to delete my fingernails. i wish it truly was post-porn tumblr

As much as I hate to say it, Tumblr was better in its classic days (2013 to 2018). It's probably cosy now but it's also relatively dead from what I can tell. I was a very active user around 2015-2017 and it was already a dying star at that point. I miss Slimetony and Glumshoe and all the insane drama would just come from nowhere (shout out to the random American white girl who larped as a transgender Chinese sex trafficking victim Muslim living in India with their transgender lesbian wife and dying of HIV just so she could justify writing a Hamilton fanfic about AIDs)

I've been on Tumblr since 2011 and can confirm. I met good friends from early tumblr but 2012 and onwards it started going increasingly to crap as rabid SJW PC-ness took over it. It used to have great culture, especially animanga posts, and some of the most hilarious ones were on there. Being in Tumblr fandom was really fun and chill, regardless if you were animanga/superwholockian/homestuck/aesthetics blog. Although, most people were still going on it just for porn, so they really shot themselves in the foot with the porn ban. It's back to being more chill now, since the porn ban made all the rabid SJWs scatter to Twitter and Reddit, but it'll still never be the same as it was in its glory.

what doesnt make sense to me is how tumblr is forced to ban porn bc apple said they can't have 18+ app in their app store, yet twitter has endless porn and stays in the app store no problem?

I don't know how more people aren't complaining about the ads.. I've been active on Tumblr since 2010/11. I've NEVER seen ads on the tumblr pages themselves. I miss the days when people created insane bordering on psychopathic pages. It used to be you just never knew what you could find on there. There were no limits. I didn't really like the psychos, but the art you could find in those days was just vastly improved. People had so much.more range to express. I liked the shock factor.

They just allow suggestive content now, porn still isn't allowed i'm pretty sure.

Anonymous 164813

Yeah somethings fishy as fuck about that. However I’m pretty sure it’s because yahoo bought tumblr and there was a problem with a few images of amateur CP circulating that girls had uploaded of themselves and bots and pedos reblogging them. To be safe and make sure they wouldn’t get in legal trouble yahoo decided to implement a ban on all porn.

People talk about 4chan and other imageboards being a haven for porn but to be honest twitter and reddit are absolutely full of porn.

Anonymous 164815

Reddit especially, with all the gross subreddits.

>>164461
They have this thing where they allow people to express their beliefs freely to find like-minded people, they won't ban you unless you attack other people i guess? (But even that is hard).

The rabid sjw/pc/woke/high on morality crowd really did suck out the fun from tumblr.
Genderbends/racebends became controversial
Fandom discussions were now very politically charged.
Every few months an American cause would go viral and the whole website becomes a bit unusable because you’ll be guilt tripped into reblogging about police brutality again.
Even shipping became much more toxic than it used to before.

Anonymous 165262

disagree, it's sometimes hard to avoid. Like yeah if you just search for "celtic knot art" or something utterly benign and niche then nothing weird will (usually) turn up, but often to advertise their posts, the creators will tag their post with E V E R Y T H I N G so get the most eyeballs on it possible.
So you can be scrolling for dress inspo and get "lingerie" posts linked under the general fashion umbrella. These of course have very little to do with showing off the underwear and a lot more with what's underneath. Just to give one example.

I do like tumblr a lot, only found it post-purge but I like the flavor. I am a bit worried by their ads section in general though, when they're not algorithmically promoting softcore porn, most of the ad space seems to be "Your Ad Here", which is never a healthy sign of a website.

Anonymous 168052

I have a lot of nostalgia for 2010-2013 era Tumblr and I feel bad about it because I know the person I am now would hate it, but I miss how I felt at home back then on the fandom side. It 100% was the beginning of the political crap we're dealing with now; I mostly joined because I wanted to talk about a TV show, but even in 2012 I saw "sex work is work", "penises can be female" and "sexuality isn't about genitals, cis gay people are bigots for not dating transgenders" on there, but it was just a niche that the anti-SJWs (like me) laughed at. But now a lot of it is mainstream…

Same. But even then, there were radfems. I remember I followed a Greek radfem and she was so badass. I wonder if she ever posted here.

Anonymous 168064

>>168054
That's true, but not on my side, since I was just there to have fun and not read politics. But ironically, I did start lurking those blogs, because they were the ones calling out the "lesbians should date transwomen or else" posts that I started seeing in droves. Seeing the trans incel stuff shocked me since the reason why I initially liked tumblr was for how sexually open and positive it was, as a girl who grew up Christian that felt really liberating to me and I got to feel less ashamed of my sexuality and the stuff I was into. But then they spat in the face of basic teachings about sexuality and consent.

I hate radblr though, but I'm just not a radfem in general. The opinions of theirs I agree with are common sense.

i love tumblr because it feels like one of the only social media platforms where you can still curate your experience on the site without terrible clickbait shit invading your feed. also, in my opinion, it's only gotten better since the porn ban, since most of the obvious sexpests left. i kinda grew up on the site but got real tired of randomly seeing horrific bdsm porn pop up in tags/on my dash so i left for a bit, but since coming back to it in like 2019, its one of my favorite sites again. love looking at silly little images

I keep hearing they're going to let porn back on the platform but I haven't seen anything official stating this as an actual fact.

Personally I would be fine if it was just hentai and general erotic art. And they still kept live action/irl porn baned because it's hard to figure out how much of that stuff is from human trafficking and revenge porn.

Nta but do you understand your own meme? You realize why women can't be treated the same if they don't truly know how to embrace their own dark side?

It means they will always end up victims, but especially if they assume the passive role will make abusers change their minds. This is foolish. I an female and I embrace my dark side completely because I just think it serves a real world purpose. I recognize a ton of women don't think this way though. It just makes no sense.
