Tumblr? Those bastards. That site pisses me off. Why the hell can't I search for multiple hashtags? What is this, the 1800's? Also, why is it when I'm logged in, the only way to view shit is one at a time, scrolling down that endless list. Why can't I get that nifty thumbnail view that shows up when I'm NOT logged in? A thumbnail is all I need to tell if it's some shit I want to look into further or not. And what's the deal with fuckers not putting an archive link on their main page? I don't wanna scroll through all yer pages and shit, I just want a bunch of thumbnails I can quickly scan over with my eyes. When you make me type in /archive after your page name, that just makes me hate you more.
Also, a ton of the cool people from deviantart are spending most, if not ALL of their time over there. Why? Because now they can post stupid random shit they found on the internet to go along with the rest of it. So now if I visit their tumblr page (as opposed to deviantart page), instead of getting only original content from them, I get a soup of miscellaneous shit I have no idea whether to give them credit for or not.
On top of all that, where' the damn community? All anything ever has is a bunch of "somefag12394 shared this" over and over underneath everything. Nobody comments, and there's no forum to which I can voice my displeasure. It's a cold, heartless site, and you should all gtfo it.
I have a tumblr account, and while my dashboard does receive posts with a pro-social justice bias (which I incidentally support), I very, very rarely encounter this extreme SJW nonsense you're talking about without first searching for it. I chalk that to up to my following only the more intelligent posters.

As I briefly mentioned in another comment because apparently I'm getting assraped here for doing stuff I haven't done (nice job attacking a user that hasn't even been in the forums lately. Just goes to show some people are fucking pansy asses) they're beyond overreacting. This is why I don't like cisgender allies on tumblr... they aren't fucking allies at all, they make a mess out of transgender wants and needs and makes it look like we're all overly sensitive children when in reality most of us don't give a shit.
When people talk about men's and women's health they usually mean male and female health, it's not even an error so much as people using a different definition of man and woman. Honestly the only people that should be kinda offended at that is Intersex individuals but I'm pretty sure they can understand the lack of inclusion considering having a dick and a vagina at the same time is kinda rare.
Yeah, it's a shame that it's usually people who are "helping" a cause that doesn't particularly effect them who hurt it with bullshit like this. I never really hear much from the intersex individuals when I read stuff like this. Maybe they have more common sense.
Sounds like another new word we should have: Cisphobia - The fear or irrational hatred of cissexual individuals. Because seriously, it's a medical blog, the majority of people are cissexual, it isn't their fault they don't do blogs on some fields when they focus on others.
Yeah, those are pretty funny, because in actually medical schools (and the actual fields), everything is in terms of biological sex since that is what is relevant to medicine.
I wouldn't bother with tumblr for science and medicine, even on a good day they tend to have dubious citations. Look for actual science blogs on science sites, or just stick to published journals in your field (or the one you're interested in if you're not there yet).
Exactly! It seems crazy that people assume someone is being sexist for referring to women's health and men's health. Sure, there are lots of things that apply to all genders, but as you said there are health issues relating to certain body parts that only people of a specific gender actually have
I'm still unsure if she is a troll or not because sometimes she doesn't sound completely whiny in her text posts and actually attempts to use more than two brain cells at once. however there was one post [link] where she quotes hanna montana in one of her asks. there are theories floating around saying her blog is actually satirical (but even if it was, there are enough people on there anyways who actually think like this and have been proven not to be trolls)
