Not because theyre dressed as characters from the show though, but because theyre attractive human womens.


I second that motion, I actually liked the show until the fandom got so conveluted it went from just liking a show to cult status. Ruined the show for me, that's never happened before. *My blog got attacked by ponies so I may be biased*

So far I think the funniest thing in this thread was a furry bashing on bronies. I don't belong to either group, but that's more than just the pot calling the kettle black. It's like like Lindsay Lohan calling Charlie Sheen a coked out looney toon.

And to clarify, I'm not really condemning one or the other. But for one oddball subculture to call out another one like that is just hilarious.

Some of you might not know, but on 4chan, there's a group of 100 bronies or so, who have kept up an active thread on the /b/ board for almost 2 years straight now. They don't even discuss the show, it's just a big circle jerk, small talk, and mutual admiration. They have their own dedicated board, but refuse to use it. Mods delete their threads and ban them frequently, but they simply reset their router or use a new proxy to continue posting.

Why they would persist in doing this in a hostile environment, I don't know. I suspect some kind of narcissistic personality disorder is at work.

The ultimate gateway furry

media.comicvine.com

Anthromorphic characters are an odd subject matter. It's always been a means of exploring topics without using humans, so you can do things with them in metaphor you'd get in trouble for using human faces. But now the crew from Looney Toons are just oddly shaped people in the new series.

From what little I've seen, the ponies are verging on non-anthro. Anything sexual in that dimension is a touch bestial. Zig Zag, at least, is still a humanoid. But the ponies are little horsies, and that won't change because of the nature or the art.
 
2012-09-23 11:21:29 PM  
From what I've seen, the thing that drives the rabid bronies is massive inner shame and insecurity. I can only fathom that this shame is centered around the (often hotly-denied) sexual attraction to the characters. They can't stop bringing it up because they're fishing for acceptance amongst their peers.

The solution is for these people to come to terms with who (or what) they are, rather than to demand everyone else accept them and never say a bad word about them.

I'm also a kinkster. Proud of it. Don't give a damn if anyone else likes it or not.

I'm also a Rennie, SCAdian, LARPer, gamer, trekkie, petrolhead, sewing nut, corseter, techie, farker, bNer, slashdotter, etc etc etc..

Wait, what?

*looks up corseter on teh intarwebs*

I can't tell if you make them, wear them, or put them on someone else.

Add sell to that, and the answer is "Yes".

Good lord, why would you want to wear a corset? Women hated them so much it became part of the suffrage movement.

Whips, handcuffs, the occasional slap, maybe even a taser - I can understand that. Corsets are just farking torture. You may as well admit to liking waterboarding.

Or are we talking about decorative corsets that don't actually torture the wearer? I can't tell. Some people get off on being ridiculously uncomfortable.


Because properly fitted steel boned corsetry is more comfortable, supportive and better for you than a bra?

Because they look fantastic?

Or just because they want to?

If you find corsetry uncomfortable,someone is doing it wrong.

A. Isnt it just a cartoon and
B. Would it matter which animal a furry liked?

Apparently it matters to someone. I guess not everyone can find something useful to do with their lives.

I am completely unclear of who you are looking down on in this post and why.


O, not you. Sorry about the confusion. No, I agree with you, that it's perplexing why anyone cares about any of this. I mean, I get why they do in the sense that I get why idiots howl at hot girls -- they're stupid and classless. I only mean that at least from my perspective, it seems silly for anyone to give a toss what people get up to in their spare time that doesn't hurt anyone.

It frankly irritates me considerably that people seem to take so much interest in such things, as if it mattered to their own lives. And then judge those people, just for being different. Which I find particularly asinine, because as I keep saying, there are no normal people in the world: everyone's a freak to someone else. The world would be a much better place if everyone just accepted this, and stopped trying to define and enforce illusory norms and identify and punish those who fail to meet them.

Anyway, sorry again for the confusion. It's *not* you I scorn.

I mean, that's what nerds of all stripes do, but today I couldn't go 20 posts in the football thread with some pony pictures. I mean, farking shiat, why do people do that? I'd be just as annoyed as some dullards posting Doctor Who shiat or something but fark, guys, piss off. I like shiat too, but I'm not constantly posting images of those things in contexts where they don't make sense. "Oh look a hockey thread! I'm going to post pictures of Columbo because I love Columbo and I have a bunch of images of Columbo with text on them!" That's what I'd be doing if I had tenth degree autism like bronies do.

gadian: I dunno, it seems to me if that you have to pretend you're a dog to be able to have sex, you're completely dissociating and don't have any true sense of self. Yes, you're aware of your...limitations, but you have very little identity grounded in the truth, like for instance, that you are a sexual human and that the person (hopefully it's a person) that you are farking is also a human no matter how desperately you wish it were otherwise.

So yes, a sense of self, no sense of identity. Makes perfect sense to me.


I think you're sincere about all this, but I also think you're misunderstand a lot of it, and filling in the gaps with your own assumptions and undeclared biases.

And I'm going to need you to hand over your libertarian credentials now. Just until this blows over.

I can see where you're coming from. As a collective force, we can be annoying like that. Part of the virality is that because it's already been mashed up with everything, it's virtually guaranteed that in any thread of sufficient length, there's likely to be at least something to which a brony can relate. When the first one calls it out, the rest of the herd jumps in, and once the avalanche has begun, it's too late for the pebbles to vote.

I'm not accusing them of being liars, but I think the current definition of a corset isn't near what the original was. "comfortable" is not an adjective anyone in the 17-1800's would use to describe a corset.
