SISSYDUDE @ FACEBOOK GROUP on August 4: Just read this interesting piece by Slava Mogutin about censorship on social media. I related a great deal, having myself been “terminated” and “blocked” on several occasions. I lost Sissydude on Blogspot in Sept 2009 (I was Dennis Cooper’d)… with no explanation or warning, been blocked from Facebook for several “month long” periods with no explanation as to why. And seriously, just after reading Mogutin’s article I went to log into Tumblr to find that today my account has been terminated! Ugh. No explanation of course, I’m waiting to hear back. Nine years of curation gone and connection to all the blogs I followed… gone. I think it’s really time to stop all this and go analog and just make real art and stop sharing things I love online. I’ve had enough of this. XO
August 6: Still nothing from Tumblr. I’m sure they won’t be back. So glad I moved Sissydude (thanks Aubs!) to it’s own site/server so many years ago. No one can censor me here. Though I may have take a break at some point. Thanks for coming here everyone! Much love to all. XOXOXO
