Words hurt. And for every action there is a reaction. Having an anon option when asking a question on tumblr is just an easy way for bullies to get away with their hurtful ways. There is no need for an anon option and most of the time all it provides is hurt and humiliation.

We are asking to have the option of being anonymous when asking a question to be removed from Tumblr. 42% of children have been bullied, and many of us see this time and time again when people are able to conceal their identity and ask or say anything Tumblr user do to their anonymity.

We see no purpose in the option, and would like to consider using the website without the fear of 'anon hate'.
