in case it isnt clear why people are bailing. 

a) its a refusal to actually address real issues of pedophilia, nazis, and other violent members of the tumblr community, and instead just putting a blanket ban on nsfw content 

b) they don’t intend to moderate the content themselves, and will apparently be relying on users to report it, as well as the unreliable bots they already have. 

c) consistently we’ve seen on tumblr and sites like youtube that queer content and blogs get marked as nsfw by bots like these, so despite their pseudo-woke bullshit about “female-presenting nipples”, inevitably this will have a huge impact on the queer community 

d) not to mention the fact that this also largely hurts sex workers (of course) who have used this platform for a long, long time

e) the vague wording of ‘erotica’ and ‘art’ makes it pretty clear imo that they don’t want to draw hard lines as to what is inappropriate just in case they change their minds in the future.

ABBA – Gimme Gimme Gimme

8-bit version (square waves)

this is what plays in the background when you have to fight abba in 1to1 combat

“You’re rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic, my friend.” Is such a brilliant line that sounds like it came outta the cigarette addled mouth of some noir detective interrogating a slimy perp, but no, it was actually Justin McElroy admonishing his brother’s driving skills in American Truck Simulator™️ and I think it’s beautiful how we can all just say words

i don’t think people understand that people can ‘love’ you and not actually love you

like my grandmother ‘loved’ me, but she also was always trying to change me.  she tried to take me away from my (catholic bisexual) mother.  she made me wear dresses when i was there.  she always tried to get me to go to church and was always asking me if i was dating a boy yet

i spent years feeling guilty that i wasn’t what she wanted me to be until my mom told me one day “she never bothered to know the real you”

and it’s true.  any time i tried to show her something about myself, even cook for her, it would be dismissed, and a replacement would be offered.  even northern food was somehow a sin.  

she loved me what she thought i should be, she never loved me.  

bc people who love you, they love you for all the stuff that makes you you.  they never consider that it makes you inconvenient.

“It was true: the other mother loved her. But she loved Coraline as a miser loves money, or a dragon loves its gold.“

Loving someone like a prized possession is a very different thing from loving someone like a person you care about.
