twitter also allows adult content. there’s porn on twitter.
and not only do major, reputable brands advertise there… they have their own brand accounts. you can be scrolling along through twitter and see some big anime honkers directly adjacent to Target ads.
so the argument that you can’t put normal advertisements on a site that also hosts porn… doesn’t hold up. especially since twitter’s tagging and filtering tools are so shoddy compared to tumblr’s they may as well not exist.
i started going through my star wars blog for flagged content and 14 pages in still hadn’t found any. i thought this was weird, especially since the flesh tones got the most aggressive response from the system, and star wars is very brown and sandy and that blog has more gifsets of real people than any of my others.
previously in the day, on my sailor moon blog, i would have found at least 2 or 3 flagged images in that many pages. i went back and checked my sailor moon blog, and it looks like the flags are gone. like i assume people have been disputing the flags, obviously, but it seems like it all went away at once, including from posts where i didn’t think the OP was active, and i can’t find any new flags.
You ever write up a post you decide will be too controversial or embarrassing but leave it in your drafts to sleep on and then forget about it? How about real personal stuff you weren’t sure you wanted to share at the time? Heavy-ass receipts on bad shit you’re leaving there only just in case you’re forced to use them?
Well if any of your drafts get flagged by the new system, a mod can apparently see them in with all your other flagged posts, and if they un-flag them, it publishes them automatically as a brand new post. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
twitter(bad… you shouldn’t follow this. but it’s where i’m most active. that’s why it’s so bad. i may just have to make a private twitter for all the screaming i do about chronic pain and politics) mastodon(dead rn but will probably revive) deviantart (same situation as masto; listen this year was very exhausting ok im sorry whoops) instagram(i barely use it because you can’t use it in a web browser but i am there and may have to learn to live with it to some degree)
i am also on pillowfort under the usual name but they are currently down for maintenance due to a security vulnerability
i have a lot of questions about “female-presenting nipples”
you can’t ignore me, @staff, these images present challenging questions for your new rules. i am not kidding around here. you need to be able to answer these questions in order to enforce your rules: does a “sexy” image of a nude woman with covered genitals, missing her nipples, (not because of cancer– she just doesn’t have nipples) violate your content policy? what about a nipple of indeterminate gender? what if the nipple-haver in question is genderfluid? what if they “present” in a way that most people might interpret as feminine, but identify as male or nonbinary, and vice-versa?
if you’re gonna pretend to be woke while you chase away your huge LGBT+ community, you’d better have thought this all the way through.
