The decision has just been announced: Tumblr says goodbye to porn. Starting on December 17th, all the photos, illustrations, gifs and videos with pornographic content and those in which you see women with uncovered nipples will be banned on the platform. Artistic images will be allowed (unless they show sexual acts), nude images during political protests, photos of newborn babies and photos of breastfeeding women. The managers of the profiles that have within them "adult" posts will receive in the coming days of the warning emails about the deletion of their contents, but their accounts will remain accessible.
