I’m sorry to interrupt everyone’s porn, but apparently it’s that time again.
I recently gained a new follower who is underage. And I get the draw, being young and discovering sex, you want to explore everything you can. I’m not going to go into a piece about how you should take time to just enjoy being the age that you are (although I’m pretty sure that I’ve done that before on this blog somewhere). The point is though that for the moment tumblr relies largely on the honor system when it comes to adult content, and does not require credit card info to prove your over 18 status. This allows a lot of people to post without having to reveal their true identity. This allows people freedom to post things that might destroy professional careers and personal lives if their tumblr account was ever linked back to their “real life”. And we all benefit from the creativity that sort of freedom fosters. But it only works so long as we all obey the rules.
So I will close by saying this… If you’re under 18 please unfollow me. Wait until you are of legal age. Help maintain the freedom of this wonderful place that is tumblr. You’re going to be 18 and over a lot longer than you’re going to be underage.
