Tumblr To Ban Thinspiration Blogs
Our Content Policy has not, until now, prohibited blogs that actively promote self-harm. These typically take the form of blogs that glorify or promote anorexia, bulimia, and other eating disorders; self-mutilation; or suicide. These are messages and points of view that we strongly oppose, and don’t want to be hosting.
Beginning next week the company will prohibit “content that actively promotes or glorifies self-injury or self-harm”, and will put PSA-type messages on search results for keywords like “thinspo”, “proana”, and the like.
