I know it's been ages since I posted. Things have been crazy busy and I've now got a shocking throat and ear infection as my punishment for not looking after myself. I had to post this because I was just SO THRILLED!!!
Tumblr, a sort of personal blogging service, a cross between Pinterest and Twitter, have proposed a new content policy.
Tumblr is kind of famous for heaps of self-harm, pro ana and pro mia sites. People set them up anonymously and they can be very hard to avoid.
Tumblr is now proposing to change their policy to either prohibit them all together or to have a public service announcement that directs readers to helplines. I hope they go with either option, but do SOMETHING!
Below is their full statement. It's had 22,205 likes.
Just quietly? I THINK THIS IS FUCKING AWESOME!!!!!!!
All we need is for services like Pinterest to grow a spine and do the same.
