Tumblr's obvious beef with Jim Davis aside, we'd be remiss if we didn't point out that this is an objectively bad thing it's doing. The erasure of adult content doesn't just serve to erase spaces where LGBT+ people can explore their sexuality in a safe, positive environment. It also alienates sex workers at a time when safe online spaces for them are being eradicated left, right, and center.
The irony of all this? Tumblr justified themselves by saying that they wanted to make the site "a place where people feel comfortable expressing themselves." It's just too bad that sentiment applies less to people who want to spread images of "female-presenting nipples" than it does to white supremacists.
