I made a petition to get rid of the stupid new safemode update!
Because a) This is annoying me and loads of people, and b) I have nothing better to do.
As of today, Tumblr has introduced a new way of blocking sensitive media on their site, with a new “safe mode” update. This safe mode has blocked many things that don’t even come close to being sensitive, and if you’re under 18 there is no way to turn it off, period.
This petition aims to make Tumblr realise that this update is ,quite frankly, useless, as the multitude of Tumblr users have other, better ways to block sensitive content that they don’t wish to see, such as blacklisting tags or blocking offensive blogs. Furthermore, before the update, Tumblr’s safe mode was already useful for blocking sensitive content by blocking all blogs and posts that had been flagged as NSFW.
This new update, however, is seemingly blocking posts and blogs at random. It is reducing not only what content people see on Tumblr, but also what people can post. Many people can’t see content their friends are reblogging, other’s are being treated to a dashboard full of blocked posts, and a few can’t do anything due to everything being blocked.
This update is useless, untested, and broken, It’s not needed, and basically the entirety of Tumblr’s userbase can agree that Tumblr has updated the wrong things. Something like a tag blocker for mobile would be much better, and it would be more useful too.
When this petition reaches enough signatures, it will be sent to Tumblr as a sign of how much people dislike this update. The aim is to have them backtrack the update, and hopefully get them to focus on more useful updates instead of one that breaks the entire site. Tumblr should be a site for everyone, and this update is preventing that from being a thing.
reblog to petition for ross butler (zach dempsey—13 reasons why/reggie mantle—riverdale) to be casted as captain li shang in disney’s live action remake of mulan
UPDATE: PLEASE READ BEFORE MAKING ANY STATEMENTS
i originally made this post to share my opinion that i thought that ross butler would be able to play the part of shang. i did not know that mulan was going to ditch the character (which actually makes me really sad wtf he was one of my favorite characters and honestly petition for mulan to have singing beauty and the beast was great and reflections and the i’ll make a man out of you song are iconic) and that’s unfortunate, but that means he can’t even play the part anyway, because it doesn’t exist. but just the concept of butler playing shang has really gotten to some people. look. i know he’s not chinese. but actors are actors, and their job is literally to portray people, 99% of the time the characters they portray are of different races. i didn’t say butler would be perfect for the part because he looks chinese. that would be racist, and i would understand all the hate on this post.
but this post never said anything of that matter. your opinion that an actor who is chinese should play the role of a chinese character is valid. but so is my opinion that butler would be able to splendidly fulfill the role as can be judged from his performances in all of these shows and so on. just. can we NOT make this into an issue and just have fun entertaining the idea? i literally don’t mean to offend anyone, it’s just weird to see all these people hating on my innocent idea. i’m not saying that because he’s asian butler is “close enough” and will “settle for the role” just because he’s popular or attractive or whatever. as a person of fellow asian decent, I KNOW NOT ALL ASIANS ARE THE SAME. and yes, I AM ANNOYED WHEN PEOPLE CONSIDER US ALL THE SAME. but that has absolutely NOTHING to do with this post my friends. just. yeah. there.
Guys, do you realize it? If only Disney had gave the greenlight to Wander Over Yonder, Craig McCracken and WOY crew could have made not only third season of Wander Over Yonder, but fourth season as well! What does that mean? That means WOY fandom should fight even harder. Spread the word, make fanart, participate in every #savewoy event you can, show to the Disney all love you feel for this beautiful show! Wander Over Yonder deserves continuation and it has all chances to get it!
My apologies up front for posting something that isn’t bookish at all, but this story just bothered the fuck out of me. Maybe I’m overreacting, but right now I want this girl (and her mother) to pay as severe a price as possible.
Please sign this petition if you agree. And again, sorry. *sigh*
So in the Philippines, their Supreme Court issued a Temporary Restraining Order on preventing the Department of Health and its agencies from going full blast on its family planning program. This puts a total ban on all contraceptives. This TRO, affects 13.4 million Filipino women. These are the 6.1 million presently using contraceptives, and the 7.3 millions more who have unmet need for family planning.
Not only are contraceptives essential for safe sex, but the oral kind, birth control pillsare a necessity for women with PCOS. These pills actually DO MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE in the lives of those with PCOS. I can personally vouch from my experience of having irregular menstruation (I didn’t have my period for 2 years at some point) and then when I got checked up, I was given instruction to take birth control pills. I was skeptic at first but only because I wasn’t informed back then. To my surprise, my period started again. It was THAT EASY. Imagine that. I could have regular menstruation if I just took these kind of cheap but still safe pills! Having regular period did wonders to both my body and my self-esteem! No, it doesn’t make PCOS go away but it sure helps with mitigating the symptoms.
But with the TRO, my right to a normal functioning body is taken away. Me and millions of other women in this country will have to deal with the symptoms of PCOS even though it could be easily mitigated with the proper medication, aka birth control pils. And no, there is no alternative because this is the most effective way, all costs considering, of regulating hormones for those whose bodies cannot do otherwise.
Please don’t let them take this right away from the many Filipino women who need them. Please help us win this fight. You can sign the petition here.
Here’s the link to the petition people came up with to save Scare PewDiePie Season 2: link A lot of people singed it but we still didn’t reach our goal. I would love to watch it! Hope our words will go trought and we will have a chace to see it. Ther’s Jack in it <3 And Mark <3 And Pewds <3 And other great youtubers.
If each of my followers would tell two of their friends, followers, family members etc to sign this petiton, we’d worry about cracking very different milestones than 1.000 supporters!
So please please keep reblogging post about this and spread the word.
If you are reading this, even if you are not in the ITF fandom, please take a moment to sign the petition as well.
In The Flesh is an amazing show and the fans really deserve closure after all the campaigning they have done!

For the ITF fans: It is amazing if you reblog all these posts, but please don’t forget to actually ask people you know to sign this as well! View it as one more little step that you can personally bring us closer to a 90 miute special. Thanks!
