Today’s reaction to the Tumblrpocalypse comes from Jordan T. Thevenow-Harrison, who is a learning designer who makes things to help people teach themselves. You can find Jordan at jtth.net.
“I learned more about identity through queer & POC teens on tumblr than in any other context. A lot of the defining work in queer communities was done on tumblr, often in response to some suggestive or horny art. All the threads that contain this work are going to disappear.
So be understanding when people feel sad when what was once a kind of welcoming bookstore suddenly piles a bunch of beloved and definitional books in a heap and lights a fuse to burn them.”
