Social Media Censorship

Social media can be quite frustrating.  In December of 2018, Tumblr decided it no longer wants adult content.  Long story short, I come back on tonight and find that some of my pieces got hidden due to violating standards.  I was able to appeal some, and a few others, I could not, including my drawing of "Rear View."

Hhhhmmm.... Wait a minute... Look what I found in the rules:

"What is permitted?

Examples of exceptions that are permitted are exposed female-presenting nipples in connection with breastfeeding, birth or after-birth moments, and health-related situations, such as post-mastectomy or gender confirmation surgery. Written content such as erotica, nudity related to political or newsworthy speech, and nudity found in art, such as sculptures and illustrations, are also stuff that can be freely posted on Tumblr."

And yet, just a simple charcoal drawing of a bottom cannot be re-appealed.

I did post Invitation II tonight and it automatically was detected as a violation.  However, I posted it in it's censored form.  I did try to appeal, but it automatically wouldn't do so and ended up with the same message.

Lately, I'm not having luck on Instagram either.  I ended up shadow-banned. However, I will try not to give up like I did with Facebook (last year, I kept getting notices... which was likely someone reporting me).

When you are an erotic artist, it can be quite a challenge with these websites.  Unfortunately, this is something we just have to deal.

At least Twitter hasn't gotten to this point (hopefully it won't eventually).
