[Image: Screen shot of Tumblr search box (top right hand side of screen) taken 3 March 2014 showing the tracked search term #Bisexual (unlocked) with Tumblr’s 'suggestions' beneath it: #gay #lgbt + #sociopathic. The word "sociopathic" is circled with an arrow pointing to it and the words "Really Tumblr?" written next to it, all in a bright red.]I’m not sure what algorithm Tumblr currently uses to decide what is an appropriate "related tag", but I suggest they fix this. Immediately!
Also since this is not the first time Tumblr’s Algorithm’s have "suggested" insulting terms might be related to bisexuals please be aware that a careful examination of bisexual + bisexuality related posts has been made. At this time none were found with the word "sociopathic" tagged OR in the body of the text.
But even if 1 or 2 did … given the number of Stupid Things people Write + Tag on Tumblr (think sex + drugs + rock and roll plus racial slurs) we are VERY VERY sure that Tumblr not wishing to have Reverend Al and the National Action Network on their Doorstep demanding recompense has ways to override egregiously idiotic correlations.
Sad that the same technical safeguards were not applied to the Bisexual Community.
