Allow NSFW Content on Tumblr

Problem
Tumblr has decided that on December 17th that it will ban almost all NSFW content on its platform, despite this content being a large part of the reason that many of Tumblr's users log into the site on a daily basis. This decision is detrimental both to the userbase, and to Tumblr in the long run, as a large part of its appeal will simply disappear, resulting in fewer users and less revenue for the site. This decision also displays a lack of respect for some users that borders on open contempt; entire communities and careers have been built around NSFW content on Tumblr, and to simply erase all of it out of hand is a startlingly callous decision.

Solution
Simply put, this decision needs to be reversed, and Tumblr will need to address concerns over adult content with a more delicate touch than simply purging everything. Sites such as Reddit are perfectly capable of managing adult content while still making an environment that is relatively safe for kids, and there is no excuse for Tumblr not putting in the same effort to achive the same results.

Personal story
My name is Jane, and I run the NSFW themed blog hentaiaddictedgirl. I've made several good friends through this blog, and the small amount of money that I've been able to make selling adult content on this platform has helped to support me through my current job search. Using Tumblr to not only find but also discuss adult content with others is a convenient escape for me, and the reason I keep coming back to Tumblr every day. It would honestly break my heart if I lost touch with my friends, and couldn't create the content I love anymore, because Tumblr has decided that blogs like my own aren't worth keeping around.
