This is a blog about the Belle Époque in Europe, which lasted from 1871 until 1914, when the first world war began. Occurring during the era of the Third French Republic (beginning 1870), it was a period characterized by optimism, peace at home and in Europe, new technology and scientific discoveries. The peace and prosperity in Paris allowed the arts to flourish, and many masterpieces of literature, music, theater, and visual art gained recognition. The Belle Époque was named, in retrospect, when it began to be considered a "golden age" in contrast to the horrors of World War I.

Isn’t that interesting.
Tumblr emailed me to tell me they deleted my post calling out the dude who sent me a rape threat.
But hasn’t banned the dude who sent me a rape threat, even though I reported him.
I guess Tumblr just wants to make their site safer for people who send rape threats than those who receive them.
I guess it’s not considered harassment to send rape threats, but if you name the person who sends you rape threats, you are harassing them.
INTERESTING

Signal boost the  fuck out of this. Let’s make tumblr’s moderation team feel fucking ashamed for letting this happen. Let’s fucking make them question their worth and ability and place in the world and make them feel like the utter sacks of fucking shit they are until they fucking fix this and every case like this.

also it looks like tumblr has deleted misandry-mermaid’s blog entirely - if they had deactivated it themselves the source links of posts from their blog would become a deactivated blog link, not disappear completely.
this is not the first time tumblr has silenced people warning the community about predators and harassers, instead protecting the culprits, and it won’t be the last.

THEY DELETED HER BLOG OMGGGG.
