only mildly offensive

1. I think it’s likely that Tumblr “safe mode” blocking teen-friendly LGBT content is a poorly chosen/implemented filtering system, and not deliberate censorship.

2. I also think it’s inexcusable for @staff to not immediately respond when people are pointing this out.  A fix may take time to implement, but a post saying “we hear you, we didn’t want this, and we’re working on it” would be easy enough to make.

3. Making “safe mode” mandatory for users under 18 was a really, really bad idea.  If they wanted to introduce it as an optional experimental feature, then whatever, it’s only mildly offensive.  But rolling out their broken-at-best filter as mandatory because “think of the children!” was just a horrible idea.

You let him help you with a couple of boxes but he seemed nervous, and that made you nervous, so you told him you could handle it. The guy was cute, he had dark hair, and dark eyes. Slim body, and broad shoulders, as far as you could tell in the grey sweater he was wearing.
