Tumblr can eat a gigantic bag of porn-sized dicks

So this is happening.

https://tumblr.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/...-Adult-content
Starting Dec 17, adult content will not be allowed on Tumblr, regardless of how old you are. You can read more about what kinds of content are not allowed on Tumblr in our Community Guidelines. If you spot a post that you don’t think belongs on Tumblr, period, you can report it: From the dashboard or in search results, tap or click the share menu (paper airplane) at the bottom of the post, and hit "Report."
Now, for those of you who don't know, Tumblr has, for a variety of reasons, become the go-to place for a lot of porn producers. Artists, models, authors, photographers, and more. Many of these blogs have hundreds of thousands of followers; some have millions. Porn on Tumblr is kind of a big deal. And now it's going away.

So as someone who is most definitely going to feel the brunt of this purge, let me just say, from the bottom of my heart: fuck you, Tumblr. I'm sure there's some business reason for this - I don't care. I was working on a fuckin' erotic Advents Calendar and now I won't even get to finish it before you fuckers delete my blog. I had some really tasteful shit on there*! But even beyond that, it was where I reached out to lots of my contacts, met a ton of really great similar-minded kinky people, and learned a whole lot about myself. And now all of that is basically just gone in two weeks.

All that's really left to say is (cosigned by basically every single fucking blog I follow) this: Fuck you, Tumblr.

Now who knows of a decent alternative platform? Maybe reddit?

SPOILER:
Anyone curious about what I do can take a look at Toymakers-Workshop.tumblr.com before it goes down. Fucking horseshit.
