sometimes and by sometimes i mean most of the time i’m kind of shocked by the people that follow me and i know a shitload of you are supernaturals and some of your are people i real life know and some of you i’m just like why are you here you precious beautiful flowers and now i am rambling let us go to bed
The thing is that tumblr is a good place for people to look at explicit material, and explicit material as we define it will include things like illustrations and photos of women without their shirts on. It won’t matter if it’s not sexual or not, for whatever FUCKED UP reason, we’ve culturally decided that naked breasts are explicit. It means that the naked selfies (that make the people who put up the naked selfies feel beautiful and the people who look at the naked selfies feel beautiful) will be gone, and that’s not even touching the fucking porn blogs.
Also: pandora’s box is already HELLA open. It would be one thing if this site had always had provisos for explicit content, but it’s all already the fuck here. Which means yahoo would have to actively remove already posted material.
Something far more cost effective (and frankly fucking sensical) would be for yahoo to further enforce an NSFW/not safe for minors screen- basically the kind of warnings you get before you log on a porn site where you have to confirm age. Filter it so that explicit blogs are private unless you’re logged into your account, and then give a confirmation page before you view the thing as a whole blog. Make safe dash a part of the fucking interface- hell, incorporate missing fucking e and autoblock certain tags on blogs for people of a certain age.
Tumblr is good thing because it’s roughly as self-regulated as reddit but it has a visual interface that makes some semblance of sense for people who find reddit a useless sea of information (which admittedly tumblr often is).
Blocking explicit content altogether just means big chunks of the userbase will move elsewhere.
so the thing about yahoo working on an explicit content filter so that the site is appropriate for children is:
I went on Google Images and typed in Samurai Jack andI was not disapointed
There was a cat on the bed, tiny and dark. It’s little body moved slowly with every breath, a tiny squeak emitting from it every other beat.
Dean pointed at the kitten. “You’re telling me that’s Cas,” he said sharply.
Sam looked like he’d swallowed a frog and nodded grimly. “Well,” he said, “yeah.”
help i can’t finish any of my fics.
au where gatsby and nick get married and gatsby’s vows are all addressed to old sport and when the preacher asks if he takes nicholas carraway to be his lawfully wedded husband, gatsby just stands there in confusion for a few minutes and eventually confesses that he has no idea who nicholas carraway is he’s here to marry old sport
Here are some awesome and empowering quotes from several very strong female celebrities.
And Kristen Stewart.
No, you know what? Fuck you.
Let me tell you about Kristen Stewart.
Let’s talk about how she’s the centerpiece of one of the most inexplicably popular misogynistic pieces of film shit and somehow gets blamed for it sucking, despite the fact that, hey, the books were actually worse. For those who were lucky enough to escape reading the actual books, her apparent lack of emotion is 100% accurate to Bella’s character, because Bella is in fact not a character but a blank white wall for fourteen-year-old girls to project themselves onto. Robert Pattinson is not the only one in the cast who hates Twilight, thank you.
Let’s talk about how she got crucified in the media for having an affair with a married man, when that man was her director. And let’s remember that she was called all manner of things for “ruining her relationship with RPattz” when she wasn’t even engaged to the dude, let alone married with kids. But oh no, she gets called a slut because she’s Kristen Stewart, she gets her career fucked because she’s Kristen Stewart, and the dude gets off scott free.
Let’s talk about how she is incredibly shy and anxious (rather, incidentally, like Chris Evans) but does film anyway, because she’s just that awesome.
Fuck your noise. She’s not the best actor in the world but she sure as hell doesn’t deserve that kind of shit.
And honestly, if you’re going to have a beef with anyone on this photoset, the biggest offender is Rosanne Barr, who has used *trans slurs and is notoriously transphobic.
