Let’s tell some brony horror stories around the campfire, shall we?
"Bronies were actually one of my big fucking wake-up calls that a lot of the panic about “yaoi fangirls” was motivated by not only plain ol’ homophobia but also…
It is alright to enjoy something not aimed towards your demographic. it is fine for you to wish for some merchandise aimed towards a broader demographic (eg: shirts, posters, plushes, figurines etc)
It is NOT alright to take over the thing and make it completely about YOU. It is NOT ALRIGHT to make the thing UNSAFE for the INTENDED DEMOGRAPHIC.
There is a BIG DIFFERENCE between wanted to be Included and wanting to TAKE OVER.

The best part is that there’s a fairly decent chance, given the background of the photo (dry wilderness and scrub brush) that the firefighter in this picture is a Hotshot—
And Hotshots, along with Smoke-Jumpers, are sort of like… Okay. If firefighters are rockstars, Hot-Shots are Queen and Smoke-Jumpers are whatever Tony Stark uses to rev himself up for badassery.
Hotshots are elite firefighters who train extensively and are inserted into high-risk terrain in order to fight the fire on the ground.
In layman’s terms—if there’s a forest fire threatening your house, the hotshots are the dudes digging the fire trenches while whirling beams of fire snap give feet from them.
And then, then, there’s the Smoke-Jumpers. As their name implies, they jump smoke.
In layman’s terms—the fires the hotshots can’t reach by land? Those crazy fuckera PARACHUTE into forest fires.
Because jumping out of a plane isn’t scary enough, they do it in near-zero visibility, through scorching smoke, with the risk that the thermals and currents could blow them right into a burning tree, to pick a landing spot so they can then be in remote backwoods wilderness with minimal hope of rescue if something goes tits up.
So yeah. If this lady’s an urban firefighter she’s a huge badass. But if my guess is right and she’s a more elite unit, then I want to have her gay babies like, yesterday.
Some interesting info: This is very reminiscent of the Baby X experiments, in which it was discovered that people reacted differently to a baby’s behavior depending on whether or not they believed the baby to be male or female. People were asked to watch a video of a baby reacting to a startling image (a Jack-in-the-box popping up), and describe the baby’s emotional state. When people believed the baby to be female, they described the baby as being scared and upset; when they thought the baby was male, they perceived the baby to be angry. This was very telling, as it showed that literally identical behavior could be construed differently based on the perceived gender of the subject.
Now imagine a lifetime of gender specific socialization- male anger is par for the course while the same emotion in a woman is personal weakness. Ha oh sorry don’t have to imagine THAT’S REALITY

IT HAPPENED TO ME: I RECEIVED RAPE THREATS AFTER CRITICIZING A COMIC BOOK
If you’re not threatened with rape, you’re told you’re not qualified, you’re not good enough, you’re not welcome here.
I wrote a piece for xoJane about the business of being a woman in comics. Trigger warning (and a warning that some of the threats are included in the article).
My friend’s been on hormones for 8 years and she doesn’t have any of the features that the TERFs say she should have. But my cis friend is 6’1 and she has broad shoulders. It’s almost as if women come in all shapes and sizes and TERFs are misogynists upholding patriarchal standards of beauty.
a brony called me unattractive
because i have hair on my legs
Self absorbed Bitch.
i’m a bitch because i can recognize that i’m not ugly, that i can laugh at someone calling me unattractive for reasons as petty as hair on my legs which EVERYONE grows?
She is most definitely not a Bitch, but yes, self absorbed I’d say from the copious amounts of selfies she takes.
selfie culture is the best op deserves a medal
Oh no! a girl feels good about herself and shows off her confidence!? Nooooo how are we going to manipulate her by playing off her insecurities if she feels good about herself?! Make it stop! make it stop!
