This is a story that seems to very accurately capture the biggest issue with the widespread acceptance of homosexuality and alternative sexual lifestyles.
In short, the microblogging site Tumblr has decided to ban all pornography after illicit material featuring children was discovered, but the LGBT community is upset because Tumblr was apparently some kind of safe space for LGBT porn.
Let that sink in.
This has always been at the end of the slippery slope that is the rejection of heteronormality: one way or another, advocates of alternative sexual lifestyles end up either enabling or making excuses for pedophiles.
And what is happening to Tumblr now is no different.
Life Site News reports:
Tumblr, which is owned by Verizon, is saying goodbye to “sexual content and nudity” for good, just a few weeks after finding child pornography had made its way onto the platform despite filters meant to prevent such occurrences. Apple’s App store quickly dumped Tumblr after the discovery.
“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” are now banned, according to a statement issued by Tumblr.
Exceptions will be made for classical statues, nudity found in art, as well as “birth or after-birth moments, and health-related situations, such as post-mastectomy.” There will also be an exception for “gender confirmation surgery” photos.
So it’s not exactly like they’re going full Victorian. Not even close.
You’d think that, in an effort to prevent child pornography from being shared, any rational person would fully agree this is for the best.
So perhaps it’s not particularly rational people who are complaining, but either way, plenty of people are complaning, and that’s the really crazy part.
The LGBT world seemed to take the announcement particularly hard.
“The surprise announcement met with shock, anger and amusement across much of social media,” according to GayStarNews. “Some predict the site will see a massive downturn in traffic. Others have already announced they are closing their Tumblr pages. Some say they will instead post to Twitter, which continues to allow NSFW [not safe for work] content.”
“Some have pointed out that Tumblr was a place for LGBTI communities to explore and share adult material,” continued the GayStarNews report. “Others have said the site made it far too easy for children to view porn.”
Another LGBT-oriented site, The Advocate, went further, pointing out that many are worried that “the new guidelines would lead to a targeted erasure of LGBTQ content.”
“They are trying to disappear us,” tweeted LGBTQ activist Anthony Oliveira, which The Advocate says alludes “to the larger trend of queer erasure happening at the behest of the Trump administration.”
How narcissistic do you have to be?! How bad is your Trump derangement syndrome?! Only in 2018 could these privileged, utterly self-absorbed homosexuals, et al. think that Tumblr is doing the bidding of the Trump administration simply for trying to save their own company’s butt after child porn was discovered on their network.
Not to mention, it is incredibly hard to believe that in 2018, the LGBT lifestyle permeates every aspect of our culture but somehow not the plethora of internet pornography.
This is exactly what happens when we begin to justify immorality. I said it. It might just seem like innocent love between two grown adults, but sooner or later, someone is going to be justifying pedophilia.
