An online blog site where fatty's, hamplanets and mini moons gather to make themselves feel better. Usually associated with fat acceptance, thin privilege and cake retention instead of water retention. Also related are the terms, healthy at any weight but not to exclude, a scale is just a number.
Chestbrah: Did you see the new fat acceptance blog on Tumblr.
Zyzz: Nah brah, don't have time for that.
Chestbrah: Understand, let's hit the gym and check our privilege.

Zyzz, Chestbrah:LOL....HAHAHAHAHAHA
Zyzz: Let's get a double scoop of D-Bol

A blogging social network site for those who want to express their opinions and be entirely themselves. Many fandoms are found on tumblr such as Harry Potter, Starkid and Glee. It's a place where people are't judged. Those with a tumblr also know not to talk about tumblr to those who don't have a tumblr. It's not a 'fashion trend' it's a place for people to be original and themselves with their followers who they don't necessarily know in real life but find some common ground with.
Facebook person: So I heard that Darren Criss guy is coming back to Glee for season 3?

Tumblr person: Yeah I found that out a while ago.

Facebook person: But I only saw it on one of my friends' statuses today. How did you know?

Tumblr person: Can't remember. Google or something. *in head - tumblr tells me EVERYTHING*

The most amazing (blogging) site on the entire of the internet. It is also a place where trolls thrive in abundance. There are a variety of different blogs on Tumblr; fashion, appreciation of celebrities, sporting blogs, text blogs, business blogs and porn blogs. Join Tumblr now, and prepare to start living life.
I logged onto Tumblr and enjoyed countless delightful hours of cats, memes, trolls and Harry Potter.

A blogging platform that claims to be accepting of people of all identities...unless you are a heterosexual, cisgender male of Northern European descent. In which case, they will hate your guts once they catch the first whiff of you, never mind if you actually support egalitarian social politics like they claim to. For that matter, even those outside the Straight White Male demographic intersection will fall prey to the tumblr community's turbulent toxicity since the various sects of "Social Justice Warriors" always fighting with each other in the absence of a common enemy. Thankfully, the majority of them are bored, hormonally charged teenagers who may grow out of it once they reach drinking age...or so we hope.
Tumblr is like a politically inverted version of 4chan's /b/ forum. Whereas /b/ hates everyone who isn't a Straight White Male, tumblr hates everyone who is straight, white, and/or male.

n. A website where users promote fanatical, extremist, and hateful ideas and positions while veiling themselves as victims of similar things to justify their hypocrisy.

n. That website where your all your favorite deviant art artists disappeared to, to promote their art while also laughing at funny gif captions their friends posted.
Joe: did you see that captioned gif on tumblr? it's so funny!

Ground zero for today's over political correctness around the world.
Is your 14 year old daughter suddenly a feminist and hates white-cis-men? Talks about how you can't joke about race/sex/gender because it's not right? Believes women are the supreme beings of the universe but demands equality at the same time? Says that only black people are allowed to wear dread locks because otherwise it's cultural appropriation? Every time Cinco De Mayo comes around she says it's racist to eat tacos that day?

That's tumblr.

The place where hipsters, emo's, and social degenerates go to to complain and make attention seeking posts. A place to stay away from and shall not be named.
Hipster friend: Go on tumblr its great! Me: I'm not a hipster and i don't need to be an attention seeking ass hat.

A simple and addictive blogging medium used by people of varying ages to share content, mostly text and photos. Unlike sites such as LiveJournal, YouTube, WordPress or Facebook, Tumblr is completely uncensored with very little moderation, enabling its users to post virtually anything they have, whether it be violent, pornographic, copyrighted, or unintelligent.

Tumblr consists of over 300 million blogs, all of which can be categorized under several different styles, most commonly fashion, fandom, photography, art, humour and personality.

Although anyone can join Tumblr, its user base is probably made up mostly of people aged between 14-25, making life in high school and university a common topic among its users.

Users with large bodies of followers on the site may feel inclined to create custom URLs that don't contain the Tumblr brand, and turn their blogs into cash generating assets with the help of Google Adsense. Under the same circumstances, some bloggers may find that they can't handle the pressure of a large following, and deactivate their accounts as a result.

In 2012, Tumblr was purchased by Yahoo! but the site did not undergo any major changes as a result of this.
Non-user: What's that site you're always on?
User: Tumblr.
Non-user: Should I make one?
User: If you want.
Non-user: Will you follow me?
User: If your blog is any good, probably.
Non-user: Okay.
