Sometimes I think I’ve mostly mellowed out about Christianity - like, I’m an atheist and that’s what I am and I can let Christians do their thing across the way.

But sometimes, man. Sometimes I have to seriously control myself. Because I do not…

I definitely appreciate that affirmation.

What are your views on bronies?

turkeyinacan answered:

Bronies are on my shit list for several reasons.


Bronies invaded and took over what was meant to be a safe and healthy environment for little girls to learn about friendship and sharing. It was meant to be a show that little girls could watch without the influence of older men. It was created by girls, for girls. How many opportunities are there for female writers and animators to create a show tailored to the growth and development of little girls?


Bronies took over a safe space for children and turned it into their own playground. The ponies are representing six little girls — six children — and Bronies have turned them into a sexual fantasy. Fuck, someone created a blog turning one of the princesses into a sexual predator as a ~joke~. Men have made felt ponies that they can literally fuck. They draw crude and disgusting fan art. They roleplay the ponies fucking each other. They took a children’s cartoon and made it sexual, which I view as extremely pedophilic.


And now bronies are expecting special treatment and recognition from Lauren Faust and everyone else involved with the show, and even accusing A SHOW ABOUT GIRLS FOR GIRLS of misandry. MISANDRY. Because men’s opinions aren’t voiced or relevant; because the male characters on the show aren’t the main characters; because the creators are trying their damndest to keep that show for little girls. Apparently having specifically female-centered content is misandry.


My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic had the potential to be revolutionary. But of course, men had to come in and fuck it all up. Again. Because God fucking forbid girls have a tiny sliver of something especially for them.


tl;dr - kill Bronies.

That’s okay. I’m still figuring stuff out, too. And believe me, there are a lot of Christians I don’t get, either. Also? Have not gotten around to like, reading any of those comments on my status about that blog post I wrote because I just don’t have the energy to try and listen to some of the B.S. that some people are spouting and I feel like this may have a little bit of reference to that, maybe? If not, my perspective still stands. 

It’s just… It’s a lot of weird and a lot of dumb and also I have a lot of obligation to keep peace and bite my tongue about my actual opinions because - lucky me - I’m marrying into a really, seriously bible-y/conservative family. So there’s that.

Also for the record, I don’t identity as a conservative so that’s really what’s important right?
