Tumblr’s Anti-Porn Algorithm Is Flagging Basically Everything As Porn

nsfw-blogtumblr’s famously unpopular decision to ban all adult content on its site has proven to be a disastrous failure. So far, tumblr seems to be flagging everything it deems to be explicit material—but it’s algorithm seems to be busted. Hundreds of users have reported having totally innocuous posts flagged on their accounts—everything from abstract art to an image of a vase.

One user was flagged for a gallery of dinosaur pics, while artist Erika Moen (the creator of Oh Joy Sex Toy) has had her fully-clothed selfies flagged as explicit, while her photos of dildos went unnoticed. A lot of people have also noticed that non-explicit LGBTQ content is being flagged, simply because it contains words like “lesbian” or “transgender.” As one poster said, “Curious to see if tumblr will walk this back or just collapse.”
