Options are being brought to us, now. Read this open letter then peruse their option.
Jeff D’Onofrio, Tumblr CEO
New York City, New York, United States
Dear Jeff D’Onofrio,
On December 17, Tumblr will be banning porn from its site.
By banning “adult content” from your website in truth you categorically ban sex workers regardless of how they are using your platform. You cut them off from the ability to build an audience for their work, and what’s even worse, you declare their very existence as obscene.
Tumblr allows every content creator, artist, or small entrepreneur to build an audience and communicate with this audience at any moment in time – if you do not work in the adult industry of course.
Many brands use social media to sell products. Social media and eCommerce are interlocked. You take this now away from every adult content creator around the globe. And that is wrong.
You mentioned in a blog post titled “A better, more positive Tumblr”:
“There is no shortage of sites on the internet that feature adult content. We will leave it to them and focus our efforts on creating the most welcoming environment possible for our community.”
You are wrong: There is a shortage of sites on the internet that feature adult content, in particular when it comes to shadowbanning and the ability to also advertise on these sites.
Look, here is what we do:
Sharesome is a site that welcomes all the people that you just kicked off your platform. You gave them time until December 17th to export a backup of their blog to save their years of work. Meanwhile we will develop an import tool, so they can move to us, and we leave you with all the white supremacist Nazi blogs – because we ban that kind of shit.
