What the heck?! Is this really considered “adult” content Tumblr? Really??!!

So I went back on Tumblr because it is now officially December 17th in the USA and this is what I saw in my activity log:


To give you some context of what this image is about, its a GIF set of Adam Driver portraying Adam Sackler on HBO’s show “Girls”. I am a very BIG Adam Driver fan so my blog posts feature a lot of Adam Driver. But this scene – this is just ridiculous – this scene is actually Adam’s character giving the female character in the scene a kiss on the cheek – THAT is it. And he’s got no top on, OOOOOO quickly, go get the porn police! It’s DAMAGING the eyes of innocent viewers to see a man without a shirt on!!!

If this had been a woman, I would fully understand. Can someone clear this up for me, are a man’s nipples considered “genitalia?” because I honestly don’t know lol… I mean, if it is classified as genitalia, well, all I can say to that is… wow.

I ask you, good people, is this correctly flagged as “adult” content? According to Tumblr, this is the type of content they will not allow on their site going forward:

Is adult content allowed on Tumblr?

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.”

What is “adult content?”

Adult content primarily includes photos, videos, or GIFs that show real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples, and any content—including photos, videos, GIFs and illustrations—that depicts sex acts.

What is still permitted?

Examples of exceptions that are still permitted are exposed female-presenting nipples in connection with breastfeeding, birth or after-birth moments, and health-related situations, such as post-mastectomy or gender confirmation surgery. Written content such as erotica, nudity related to political or newsworthy speech, and nudity found in art, such as sculptures and illustrations, are also stuff that can be freely posted on Tumblr.

Now, I am not the original poster of this content so I can’t flag this as erroneous. But still, that BRIGHT orange banner is gonna trigger a helluva lot of people, just like it did me … 😦
