So I just got back last night from a brony convention in San Francisco. I was working a booth for a vendor friend, and let me tell you what happened:
We met a little girl who was there with her family. She got a button drawn at our booth, told us all about her favorite…
This is sad as fuck. The show is freaking awesome, for soooo many reasons. And im really frustrated to see that this is what people outside of the fandom see. The fandom its actually great too, Ive seen so many good ART made by grown-up people: music, comics, games, etc. They (we?) are people who really love the show and make great things out of it. And its really lovely to see men of all ages enjoying something made clasically for girls.
So its depresing to see how one sick bastard can ruin everything. Cloppers are different, i cant see something specially awfull about them, after watching porn with dead people and other lovely stuff. But yeah, it is bad when you are exposing young children to explicit content. I would hate to see that any of y sisters or young cousins find the sexual fanart that ive seen. I dont really feel pony porn its bad by itself (not more that general furry porn), but if you dont have care to hide it from children, thats problematic.
But pleaseeeee dont think that bronie fandom is like that because of this one dude. Its like saying like death metal is murder because of that man who killed someone and who happened to listen to death metal. That pedophile was what he was NO MATTER which fandom he liked.
Rant end :c
