In 2018, Tumblr announced that from 17th December] all content including photos, videos or gifs that “show real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples” would be banned, alongside any content that depicts sex. Already many images with no nudity have been flagged and some fan art accounts have been shadow banned.
