Wow, I made a successful thread!
To few stallions is honestly the most concrete reasoning I can see. Teenage pigness probably goes more into Clop stories.
Like the first comment stated I would agree the multitude of homosexual relationships probably doesn't help depict bronies as not homosexual themselves.
The pedo fic I remember off the top of my head is ones with Cheerlie & her students. To say their age is a mute point if their mature enough, I honestly doubt they would be going to a playground having school if they were adults. Plus they are considered fillys versus mares and stallions.
I will pose two hypothetical questions now:
If MLP:FIM were to gain multiple new stallions to work with, do you think it would even out the prevalence of Homo v.s. Hetero shippings in the fanbase?
Why are there incest shipping stories as well?
Um... Homosexual pairings are common in ALL fandoms. Besides, as has been said MLP happens to have a cast of mostly female characters, and when that happens, pairings between the same-sex are naturally more common.
I don't see why it's such a big deal to you. But then again, knowing you, I do.
I'd say as long as we stay away from the graphic art, if you know what I mean, it's all good. It's especially a thousand times better than the violence stuff, which I think is far too prominent in this fandom. At least homosexual pairings are love. Sure they're out of character as far as we know, but no where near the amount of out of character that the violent stuff is.
So we meet again I see.... It only bothers me in the sense of reading a story which is good suddenly deciding to ship characters with the thought that it is just a given.
