A lot of people are talking about the new tumblr regulations about NSFW content and that is really important but I’m personally more upset about the limitations on tag searches on mobile devices.
THE FOLLOWING TAGS NO LONGER WORK ON MOBILE DEVICES:
THE FOLLOWING TAGS DO WORK ON MOBILE :
I can’t speak for what happens in the other tags, but the bisexuality tag is how the bisexual community on tumblr finds our own, and to have that stricken from mobile is insane. Didn’t we just win a big victory with google?
Just because some people use these tags for porn is no reason to erase entire classes of people. Oppressed people. People who have already had their feelings and lives dismissed, ignored, and generally shat on.
Does anyone know of a petition we can sign or a formal complaint system?? I don’t want to take this lying down, but I don’t know what we should do.
This is something that is very troubling to us here at this blog. We tag most of our posts with bisexuality and with only 5 tags to find an audience, we want our stuff to be found by the widest audience possible.
Just like any other ham-handed one-size-fits-all solution, this one will most negatively impact already marginalized people.
