    Where are you hosting? If on photobucket, take the image down and reupload to your blog with a different link.

    I use imgur for my posts here on SF. The thing is, when a post gets selected for the SF Tumblr, apparently a copy of the pic is made which is hosted on tumblr (is that correct, @LA Guy ?), so I no longer have control over it...

    Because this time it was me who found out that my pic was reblogged on that porn tumblr, but next time it might be my wife or daughter accidentally clicking on a link on papa's computer....

    You're that afraid of your wife looking at gay porn? You can put parental controls on your tumblr to not visit sites with any porn iirc. Can't you do that for your computer as a whole? Or just put a password on your computer.

    No, that's not the point. But I don't think she'll be amused to see her husband's pics surrounded by explicit porn stuff, even if chances of that actually happening are very slim. And I don't feel too comfortable with that either. I don't use tumblr myself but this is about SF posts that get put on the SF tumblr.
    I'd rather not use passwords and such, I'd like to think we have a family with no secrets for each other (wishful thinking perhaps...?)

    I don't really get why this bothers you...anyway, once you post pictures on the Internet, you don't have that much control over what happens to them. Some Tumblring homosexual could, for instance, simply download the picture from SF and post it on his own Tumblr.

    Are you worried about your wife or daughter surreptitiously seeing gay porn on purpose? If so, there are other ways to find gay porn on the Internet that don't involve the Styleforvm Tumblr page.

    Elio, I have had my fits reblogged all over the place. Gay porn, straight porn, old people porn, foot fetishes, you name it. I'm not even joking. I stopped checking who reblogged me because I was unsure what I was going to find.

    There are tons of "interesting" people out there on the web, and once a picture goes up it's pretty much fair game for anybody. I really wouldn't worry about it.

    It happened to me too. I discovered in the process that there are all sorts of sites and forums where bearded men are... well... popular :embar:

    At the end of the day, it's kinda flattering.

    As mentioned, once it is posted somewhere, everyone can grab and post somewhere else. Social media like tumblr and others just show you more transparently who reblogged it. (Although not always, tumblr is full of photo thieves who don't even give the courtesy of reblogging or crediting)

    +1 - not to mention the number of weird and disturbing offers and compliments I have received through Tumblr PMs ( and for some reason always from men,...) :crazy:

    You need to start posting on Pinterest. Mostly women pinning your pics there
