A Tumblr crew busy making the online world safe for us all.
In my last post about this I ended by suggesting someone devote an entire Tumblr to nipple close-ups that appear to be female, but are actually cropped shots of select, female-looking male nipples. I still would LOVE to see someone do that. recently I came across this image which made me think of the same irony:
How cool would it be if the model was actually a young male?
I am very curious to see how the new policy is going to play out. Will sites begin to be censored? eliminated? Will Tumblr challenge photos that technically don't violate their own written rules and be forced to amend them? (If you read the guidelines, a photo of a person getting spanked on a bare bottom without revealing a nipple or genitals, is technically not prohibited.)
My sincere wish is not that Tumblr bow to pressure to reconsider, but rather discover through experience how impossible it may be to determine what "adult content" truly is.
And in the midst of it all perhaps someone somewhere is going to see how downright silly the fear of nipples is. ( I wonder if Jeff D'Onofrio puts stickers over his National Geographics?)
