Tumblr announced that they are going scorched earth with pornographic content by removing it from the site entirely. Tumblr’s decision feels very much like a condemnation of sex work and pornography as a whole, and specifically ends up targeting marginalized groups who rely on the site in a number of ways.

How do I make this choice without being selfish?

Guys, I’m currently working my dream job. It’s awesome. But the very existence of my job is dependent on outside factors, and is re-evaluated every six months. The last year in particular has been really really uncertain; I’ve kept my job, but just barely. The next evaluation is looking very grim.
I’ve found ways of dealing with the perpetual anxiety of never knowing if my job will be abolished. Maybe these tips can help others with job uncertainty, like me…
