Because a huge number of children host blogs on this site and much of the sexually explicit content is not flagged as such, it is extremely important that Tumblr develop a consistent policy of removal. At the present time, Tumblr will only remove videos and allows sexually explicit animated gif images and still photos to remain. Nudity is not the issue. The issue is sexually explicit materials which have ample websites where they are welcome. They have no place on a general use blog site where children have easy access to them.
Note that this petition has nothing to do with artistic nudes and that sort of item where they are posted with correct tags marking them as mature content.This is specifically in regards to those who are using the rules loopholes to post "money shot" porn images. Much of the time this is done without correctly marking it as mature content. Many of the blogs this material is posted to are also security risks as they are full of viruses and malware or links to those kinds of things. Thus, not only are children being exposed to pornography through this loophole, Tumblr's users are being put at risk to severe damage to their computers if they unwittingly end up on one of those blogs. This just makes the need for a solution more urgent.
