People are taking Tumblr’s ban on x-rated content really, really personally

Tumblr sent shockwaves across the world this week when it announced it will no longer allow x-rated content beginning on December 17.

In a blog post published Monday, CEO Jeff D’Onofrio wrote:

Over the past several months, and inspired by our storied past, we’ve given serious thought to who we want to be to our community moving forward and have been hard at work laying the foundation for a better Tumblr. We’ve realized that in order to continue to fulfill our promise and place in culture, especially as it evolves, we must change … Today, we’re taking another step by no longer allowing adult content, including explicit sexual content and nudity (with some exceptions).

Naturally, people are livid.

Many are concerned about about how sex workers and sex-positive content creators will be adversely affected by the policy change.

Others are simply worried about where they’re gonna get their porn fixes going forward and are calling for an official boycott of the microblogging platform.

The fury has been unending…

But it doesn’t stop there…
