→ Tumblr'€™s Porn Filter Backfires In LGBTQ Community

fastcompany:

Though well intentioned, Tumblr’s approach to blocking porn by making certain tags accessible via search has already backfired.

We originally reported on Tumblr’s new porn-blocking technique as a clever way to filter out porn for users who don’t want to see it while not limiting freedom of expression. Unfortunately, it looks like the decision had some unintended consequences.

By blocking the tags #gay, #lesbian, and #bisexual from search results in mobile apps, Tumblr blacklisted a lot of advocacy content in addition to porn, which has some LGBTQ users calling it “a crackdown on our very identities.”
