  1. How do men and women romantically bond with each other? THESE ARE THINGS I HAVE READ ONLINE: I heard that generally, women are even more social than men are. After something bad happens, a woman quickly rushes to talk to all of her female friends to get support, whereas a male can isolate himself and grief alone. I also heard that women tend to be more emotional and caring and empathic and compassionate than men are, and thus bond more with other women in a special way that they can’t with men. Men, on the other hand, are not that emotional, and thus can’t bond with other men in a special way. I also heard that women are more comfortable being around with other women than they are with men. They have a type of bond that usually men with women won’t really have, or with men and men. I also heard that women are very unique creatures, and women feel a lot safer in general with other women than they do with men if either is alone with each other, and it is easier for women to trust other women more than it is to trust a man. I also heard that women are very sociable with each other, so if something goes wrong, they like to speak about it to each other. This is a way to develop trust among women. Women often relate their problems with other women, which makes them feel more connected in a way. I also heard that most daughters have a very strong bond with their mother, while they don’t have one with their father. And that sons don’t have that strong of a bond with neither their mother nor their father. I also heard that the bond that two females have with each other is the strongest bond of them all, and that's one of the reasons why sayings like “girls always have to stick together” exist. And I also heard that the friendship of males and females can hardly be as good as a female to a female relationship from a woman’s point of view. So if those things are true (which I am not sure at all), then how can a man and woman have a special strong type of bond with each other if women have a special strong type of bond with each other while men don’t have one with each other? Also, men and women are both mentally and physically different from each other (which is true), but would that at all effect the bonding between a male and female?
  2. I don't want to make this whole thing a big deal but I also want you guys to know a little more about me personally, and I want to tell people. For a while I've been feeling stuck inside my own brain and just feeling like nobody else understood me. I knew people out there probably did but I had no way of asking because I myself could not even describe what I was feeling. I was confused, maybe even a bit depressed. I still am. I'm not always happy but I'm trying. I feel like there are already so many people in the world judging me, that if they even knew a small part of everything I'm going to say, they would just make everything worse. It especially hurts because it might even be my own brother. He agrees and accepts a lot of things but he's very quick to judge as well and it sucks not feeling like I can tell him a part of this because him and I are so close. I want to tell him, I really do, but I also know I can't. Not yet at least. I know a lot of you will probably have a hard time understanding everything too. Like I did, like everyone does in the beginning. If I was to tell this to anyone though, it would be all of you. I barely know you guys, but all you have ever been was nice and kind (besides one very minor experience). First things first, I'm a Demisexual Panromantic. (Well FIRST first of all, I'm a girl. (This information will come in handy to you later). Not even I like saying all that so I also call myself Pansexual. To explain, demisexual is just a word for gaining sexual attraction to a person as your relationship with them grows more. The more you know a person, are with them, the more you'll be sexually attracted to them. In my case at least. This isn't exactly me but right now that's what I'm going with before I find a better term. And that's okay. Panromantic/ pansexual just refers to my attraction to basically everyone. (No it's not all at once and yes a person still has standards). It's attraction to a person of any gender identity unlike being bisexual which is just attraction to the both the male and female genders. (Pansexual Pride Flag Attached+ Demisexual Panromantic Flag) Most everyone in my life knows I'm Pansexual. A lot don't know about the demisexual thing and that's okay because i'm not entirely sure about it yet either. Most everyone is okay with me being pansexual. Obviously got those homophobic bullies at school but I'll live. Plus my grandmas don't really understand this kind of stuff. When I came out to my mom officially, she said "Oh, I didn't know that". But of course she's really accepting. She just gets confused with all the names and labels of everything. A lot of people do too and don't like it. But some people need those labels, like me. I want to have that secure feeling that I'm not the only one. Because I'm not. What people don't know yet, except one person very close to me, is that I'm also Bigender. Actually what made me look more into this was that my girlfriend actually told me they were non-binary this morning. That basically means they don't conform to any gender? I myself am still trying to figure out and understand that one. So don't listen to a word I say haha. Before this, I was playing with the notion of being some type of Genderfluid/genderqueer. For those who don't know, it's also non conforming to only one male or female gender, but it isn't "no gender" somewhat like non binary. I cut my hair short. I hated it being long, mostly for the reason of me being young and not knowing how to care for it properly. I loved my short hair, but I started being the target of gay jokes and other things people would say to me. These boys who sat next to me in one of my classes would whisper "Lesbian" at me behind my back and laugh at me. At the end of the year, I was walking through the hallway in my dress for the school dance that night, and this kid comes walking by me repeating over and over, "Are you a boy? Are you a boy?". I just ignored him but this other girl in my class stood up for me. It was angering. Around that time I was really stressing about "looking pretty like a girl". I really just wanted to be pretty. And when that kid said that, my confidence level dropped 100%. I wanted to be out of that dress and in sweatpants and a hoodie right away. All because of that one kid, the rest of my school day was touch and go. I put a jacket on over my dress to try and cover it up. (Let it be known my sister did my makeup like the sugar plum fairy) I wanted that gone too. All I wished for was... To be a guy. To not have to worry about looking like a girl or pretty. I wish I had worn a button up shirt that day. But I decided not to because I wanted to feel pretty. And for once I did, at least for a second. And no I'm not saying guys can't be pretty. I'm saying the girls at my school have a standard. All the guys expect all girls to be that way. When they aren't. Obviously. The worst part about what that kid said to me was that he was right. Kind of. I felt wrong. Out of place. I felt like a guy in makeup and a dress. I felt like that's what everyone who looked at me that day saw. I've never really been the girly girl. In elementary school, I hated wearing dresses and hated seeing myself in them. I actually still do. But back then, I wore ties to my choir concerts and the same hoodie Every Single Day. I was slightly disgusting. Didn't have many friends. I was always being self conscious about how I looked and what other people thought of me. After a while, my mom stopped trying to make me wear dresses and stopped buying clothes she knew I would never wear. I wore shorts. All the time. Never blue jeans. And just normal T-Shirts with sayings on them; My favorite being, "Hide the cookie jar, Mom's home". Throughout middle school, my style slowly got a bit more tolerable. I'm actually interested in fashion design, but I know that I'd probably never wear anything I designed. I've also never touched anything make up related until my 14th birthday. I used to hate it. I mean now, I still feel awkward in it sometimes, but if I do it myself not as much. I never do anything to crazy, unless I'm trying out a cosplay. (Different situation, Yes I am a major weeb). Anyways, back to what this is all about. I'm Bigender. Bigender is, " a gender identity which can be literally translated as 'two genders' or 'double gender'. Bigender people experience exactly two gender identities, either simultaneously or varying between the two. These two gender identities could be male and female, but could also include non-binary identities.". I looked at definition for the first time maybe five hours ago. I said, "That Me." quoting the amazing Daniel Howell. But really. There was nothing that could describe me better. I felt so happy and relieved that I could finally put a word to something that has been bugging me for so long. I want to say thank you to my girlfriend as well because without her, I would have never decided to look up genderqueer at all. I feel like this giant weight has been lifted off my shoulders. But on comes a new one because now I need to tell people! I mean to be honest I don't have to. I would like to though. It'd be kind of nice to be called "he" whenever I want or "she"whenever I want. Even "they" would be nice. All I could think about today was "I want to be called a he", and that was the weirdest thing in the entire world. When i found out about Bigender I was so happy! I had to tell someone regardless. Heck as many people as I could. In the most dramatic way possible. BAM! Blog post you're reading right now. Just a reminder, I feel safe telling all this information on here because I know this is a good environment. I'm not looking to share a bunch of super private information, but I would like to share my feelings on the matter as best as possible with you guys understanding. When my sister, previously a dude, a came out as Transgender, that period of time not knowing what to call her was aggravating. I literally just her by her name half the time instead of pronouns. Around people who didn't know it was especially worse. I was so confused and angry all the time. I actually felt "self conscious" when I called her a she in the beginning. It was so stupid. I was scared for what other people were going to say to me about using the correct pronouns. What my parents would say. Even what she would say. Now it's stupid but I don't want to go through another period of time like that. It was too hard. I care about Sam, so deeply. I want whatever will make Sam happy. (I wish you'd give me some answers here). And I know this is something I could never force out of a person. Everything they tell a person is 100% their choice, but if there's anything to be said that could make this any easier, please say it. If I know right away what a person prefers or doesn't prefer, it just helps people from making all those awkward mistakes and assumptions about a person. It's already been hard today to stop thinking of Sam as a she. It's been really really hard, Im not going to lie. I don't know what to think of Sam as anymore! More flags bellow are going to be Bigender, Genderfluid, and Non-Binary. So I know this has all been a lot. It's been tough for me to write out and explain. Also to relive and live through today. Hopefully you all understand and maybe some of you guys can help me out a bit. I know everything will just take time. Like stuff does. It takes its sweet time. Well thank you for reading about me and my life today. Maybe you learned thing or two. I hope there is no need for me saying this: but please no hateful comments. This has been very hard for me to share so please do not make it harder. It took me hours to write this so please be kind. Have a good night everyone.
  3. I was thinking about opening this thread with a boring thesis statement on the way society has developed gender-based advantages and disadvantages, but in this case I think the title says it all. As a man, I think women have the upper hand, especially in the romance department. Assuming heterosexuality, it seems like the pressure is always on the guy to ask permission to advance a relationship, be it a dance invitation or a marriage proposal. And even though women now have equal employment opportunity, it's generally assumed that we should pay for dates. I have to admit, though, performing acts of chivalry feels undeniably sweet. What do you think?
  4. I couldn't find a topic like this, so I made one I'm actually non-binary, so I was wondering: is there anyone else here like me? If you have suggestions for poll choices, please let me know! EDIT: I put boy/girl and transgender boy/girl as separate options simply because I want to know if there are other LGBT people here...
  5. So, uh yeah, just start assuming genders. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeq_39DaJoU
  6. Whether you were born in the most privileged part of the US, or the hellhole of Iraq, it seems to be a common sentiment that being a woman in this world is to be unlucky in some regard. Historical patriarchy has had its clear effects on women, which are still felt today. For the purpose of this essay, I'm disregarding the worst places in the world where women are truly denied the most basic of rights. Right here in my home of the US, it's commonly said that women have to fight and work twice as hard, and "play the game better", in order to be respected. Today, I'd like to explain why being male isn't always sunshine and rainbows. In this morning's newspaper, I read an opinion article by a woman who believes that Donald Trump's alleged treatment of women is completely unsurprising, and furthermore a non-issue, because "most men don't respect women." She then went on to cite the existence of strip clubs and Hooters restaurants as evidence of this. I'm not going to weigh-in on my opinions of these sorts of establishments at the moment. The point I want to focus on is specifically this woman's impression of men, and the fact that this sentiment appears very common among women. She says "most" men disrespect women. Most. By definition, "most" means, at minimum, over 50%. I wouldn't be surprised if she was implying considerably more than that--say 2/3 or 3/4. But I'll grant her the largest concession possible, and go with just over half. Over half. She believes that over half of all men disrespect women. (And keep in mind, she's not from Afghanistan, she's from California.) Could this figure really be true? Is every other man you see on the street an objectifying disrespecting, sexist scumbag? Surely not, but the actual numbers are irrelevant to the purpose of this essay. The point is that she simply feels this way in the first place. The point is that many people have this impression of men. As a desperately lonely man, I feel like the game has been rigged against me. I feel like I am constantly labeled as a villain. I feel like wherever I go, women regard me with mistrust and suspicion, and assume that I am shallow and objectify women. I feel like I have been lumped in with the bad guys without being given a chance. I greatly resent being male for this reason. Women often say that they have to fight and work twice as hard in this world in order to be thought equal to men. (Or even half as good, as you sometimes hear.) But I feel like I have to fight and work twice as hard in order to be thought a decent human being, and not a shallow, chauvinistic australopithacine. For my whole life, I've felt like no one has ever looked at me and just seen me, without looking through this pool of poison. I am only viewed through the clouded lens of prejudice created by the bad members of my sex. Any acceptance of me comes with caveats and comparisons to other men. To all women who feel like they've been dealt a bad hand, please know that the grass isn't always greener; it's dead on both sides of the fence.
  7. So there's a "What's Your Sexuality" topic, why not make one for your OC/Ponysona? My Ponysona, Lucky Bolt, is a heterosexual female, like me. But one of my other OC ponies, named Thunder Bird, is asexual. I don't have a pic of her, but here's a picture of Lucky Bolt:
  8. Welcome to the very first transgender support thread on the forums! This will be a way of reaching out to those who experience great discomfort with their anatomy, biology, and the social pressures to behave and present themselves in accordance to their gender assigned at birth. It is a big and scary world out there and we want to reassure people who are suffering with gender dysphoria feel like they are not alone. In fact, there are over 700,000 transgenders in the U.S. alone [1]. There is no reason to feel alone and that is what this thread is here to prove! There are also a handful of open transgender members here as evidenced by the amount of life advice threads started by them: https://mlpforums.com/tags/forums/transgender/ There are definitely more trans people on here, I'm sure, who are most likely afraid of coming out. So I hope this thread can provide the virtual safe haven they need! If you are not trans but wish to show support to the trans community, you're more than welcome! For those of you who have no idea what transgender means, see the following and educate yourselves: https://en.wikipedia...Gender_identity https://en.wikipedia...ender_dysphoria https://en.wikipedia...iki/Transgender You are free to share your support, stories, thoughts, questions, concerns, etc! So yeah!
  9. I have a few questions. Why do most ponies have round faces and some have square faces? Some say that the mares have round faces and the stallions have square faces but is that true? I mean Zecora is a female with a square face and so are Celestia, Luna and Cadence but not Twilight or Flurry Heart. Also, some colts have round faces. Are colts born with round faces and they go square when they grow up? Why are Flurry Heart's wings bigger than her body and is it because she's an Alicorn? Speaking of wings, why are Bulk Biceps's wings smaller than the rest of his otherwise large body? (Like they're the same size as a foal's wings) Why are Celestia, Luna and Cadence much taller and thinner than most other ponies? Why are Big Mac, Shining Armour and the Cake parents taller and chubbier than most other ponies? Why do adult pegasi fold their wings to their bodies but I've never seen a pegasus foal do that?
  10. In "Too Many Pinkie Pies," Pinkie feels there are not enough Pinkie Pies to go around, and so she clones herself. In order to do so, she visits a mystical pond known as the Mirror Pool, and recites a poem that ends in something along the lines of "I won't be scared at the idea of being doubly mared." A mare is a female horse, a male is a stallion. Pinkie Pie is a mare, but what if a stallion wanted to clone himself. Would he have to say "doubly stallioned."? This may not work very well, because "stallioned" doesn't scan in terms of poetry, and it doesn't, by any stretch of the imagination, rhyme with "scared". Is it possible the Mirror Pool only works on mares, and if so, why? What do you guys think?
  11. So this is for posting and commenting on genderbent fanart of characters from anything you like! I made this topic (and my new blog) for this (rather large) picture: I really really like this picture and I made it my phone lock-screen background. So, what cool genderbent pictures do you have?
  12. Although Dashie is technically a female, I don't think of her as being very female at all. Her willingness to compete, do things that are cool, and the natural rejection she has towards things that are "girly" just don't fit the gender given her. I thought of Rainbow as being non-binary before I even knew for sure she was a female. I think Dashie fits in as somewhat male-leaning or just free of gender all together. What do you think?
  13. This is something I draw when I had a conversation with DarkstarCyber. Lets Say.. It was a weird one. WIP Mist Blitz Genderbend Original
  14. Personally, I think there should be an 'agender' option for the forums in a user's profile. I realize that people don't want a "long list" of genders but it's simply an extra option(s) (I believe genderfluid should be added as well). There's other genders on the list, but using female for myself feels awkward and using 'other' just sounds...kind of disgusting imo, it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I know there are other people here who are agender and it'd probably make them feel more comfortable here as well. It's just an idea, and sorry if this type of topic was already made (I did see the more gender options topic but everything was added except agender and genderfluid which sounded skipped over in exchange for the 'other' option). Both agender and genderfluid seem relatively popular so not adding them because it'd be a "long list" just sounds kind of odd to me.
  15. I didn't see a thread for this (I am quite frankly surprised about that and please merge if one is found, mods), so who else this here brony forum has gender identity issues or is a transgender? I am and fairly proud. I discovered this about a year after I discovered my sexuality isn't straight.(I'm pansexual (homoromantic, also) as of right now) I thought about how little similarities I have to the average guy and how I despise my bodily features. Mostly this Adams Apple of mine. It is so ANNOYING. It's literally what I see in pictures. The irritating bulge in my neck.
  16. So why is it that guys seem to dominate this fandom, anyhow? What I would have expected is that since it would be considered less weird for women to like MLP, that women would dominate as it would be easier for them to get into this show. Instead it's mostly dudes. I have some guesses, but they're mostly speculation. There is the possibility that there is something about FiM that speaks to adult men but not adult women so much. Or maybe there are a lot more adult MLP fans overall, but they just don't participate as much. I've heard it suggested that there is rampant misogynism in this fandom that drives women away. It could be any number of things, but this is something that has puzzled me for awhile. Thoughts?
  17. Before I ask my questions, I want to state that due to recent events like GamerGate, the community I am a part of has been labeled with words like "sexist" due to some vocal people's responses and actions. Groups like the mainstream media seem to believe that we don't want to have main female characters that are well represented in video games. Honestly, I find this notion irritating since I am one of those not opposed to this at all. I am a male gamer who is perfectly okay with games having a female protagonist and is willing to see more games that are like this, including ones where she has positive character traits, and may not even be sexualized at all. I really don't have an issue if a trend starts where more games are made like this. Do you feel the same way and are completely fine with more female protagonists in gaming? Any personal favorites you want to discuss? Also, I am more interested in what the guys say since I hear the same thing so often about how we want to keep things as a "boys club", which I really can't stand.
  18. This is a topic that I come across every once in a while: people playing characters opposite their gender in games (usually guys playing as girls in MMOs). This topic pops up more often in games where one can choose a gender to play as when they are creating their character. I'm creating this topic just to hear the views of my fellow forum members. So, what are your views on the subject? Do you believe there is a relation between playing the opposite gender and one's sexual orientation and/or gender identity? Does it bother you when others play as the opposite gender; if so, why? Are there situations where playing the opposite gender is more acceptable? For those who play the opposite gender, why do you do that? I'll post my views later on. Also (just to leave no room for doubt) this discussion isn't limited to just MMORPGs; feel free to talk about other cases such as FemShep or maybe Persona 3 Portable's FeMC. Edit: Finally got around to posting in my own thread. post #100
  19. Personally I'm not satisfied with the current gender options MLPForums have. But rather than make a site suggestion immediately I want to find out if other people would like to see more gender options on the site? Personally I think it should just be a field that you can type a set number of characters into in order to specify gender rather than rely on pre-set options that won't meet everyone's needs.
  20. I'm just wondering your opinions on this topic. I for one, believe that yes, men and women are treated as equals in the wonderful world of MLP, and that gender roles are non-existent. Also that the two genders are equal in physical strength and intelligence, and the only difference between a mare and a stallion is their... well, I'm not even going to go there. The only time it even remotely portrays gender roles is Rarity's trip to the Gala where she expects for a Prince Charming to treat her "like a lady". I talked about this with a friend who thinks that either they are equal, or mares have the slight upper hoof. I initially liked the idea of the latter, thinking it to be a refreshing island. But recently I realised - is that not as bad as the gender inequality in this world? (if not worse, given the fact that females already have the advantage of giving birth?) I believe that mares and stallions are on par, but some RPers I have come across do not seem to hold this belief. I don't go around yelling, "This is my opinion and anyone who doesn't agree with it is delusional", but it can be frustrating if I want to make the RP "canon" to my OCs. If it is not addressed to my OCs, I can simply walk past it and pretend it never happened. But if it is (for example, somepony saying to Anala, "you're a pretty good archer for a mare", or to Riley, "Be a real man and ask her out!" (even though this has not occured yet)), it can be frustrating. So, whaddaya'll think?
  21. Other than the unusually-attractive characters, the way they (boys and girls in their high school life) are portrayed, be it stereotypical or Mary-Sue'd, can be a good place to research gender roles and norms and stereotypes. Don't you think? hopefully I don't get too caught up with the girls, though ...
  22. Nothing, but nothing, grinds my gears quite like being told that all/most bronies are men. I feel erased, which is dumb, because My Little Pony is a really important show for women and feminism and whatnot, and I think genderqueer people get erased more than enough as it is without also getting erased from their happy colorful fluffy pony fandom. So, people of the non-male persuasion, I want to hear your stories about being in the sadly overlooked (and not minority) part of this fandom! Anything related to your experiences as a non-male brony. Questions you can address include Have you ever felt ignored/left out due to your gender? How do you feel about people making jokes about bronies with the implication that bronies are strictly male? Do you think a lot of people in this fandom believe in the "fake nerd girl" myth? Have you ever felt unsafe in this fandom, and how do you feel about the growing stigma that the fandom is an unsafe place for non-males? Anything else you would like to discuss
  23. I'm just curious to see what people think. Here is a recent photo of me. By the way, I'm not telling you guys what my actual physical gender is. See, I consider myself to be a neutral-gendered or omnigendered individual. I do not identify as the gender I was born with, but I also don't fully identify as the opposite gender either. When I draw myself as a character, the gender I use varies. Even my bronysonas are different genders, but... not quite the stereotypes of their genders. (Rainshine is a mare with a squared muzzle and no eyelashes; Pudú is a tiny, fluffy buck.) Anyway, I often watch people on the Internet get into arguments over my gender, and I don't like when that happens, but I would like to know what general percentage of people generally view me as male or female. It's interesting. Please do not post any insulting or offensive comments in this topic, either directed toward me, to one another, or to anyone or any group of people in general. Thank you. (**clarification: When I say "insulting or offensive," I mean like hating on people with different gender identities. I am not going to be offended by your opinion of what I look like, but I don't want to be told what I have to be or that what I am is wrong. Guys, please stop apologizing for giving me what I asked for! xP)
  24. As I was joining this site (about an hour ago, actually), I noticed that there are only three options available for "gender"; "male", "female", and "prefer not to say". I think that it is important to give genderqueer bronies the option to choose their correct gender, so that they feel comfortable and welcome in this community (which I do believe is all about making people feel welcome, is it not?). I would suggest either turning the gender box into something where you can just write in whatever you'd like, or in addition to the choices currently available adding Gender-fluid Pangender Agender Trans M/Trans F (maybe, I would defer to the transbronies to determine whether or not this option would be appreciated) It's Complicated (because sometimes it is) and a silly response or two for good measure (see the options for gigapause.com accounts and you'll know what I'm talking about) Much thanks for taking the time to read this! I hope that my humble opinions will result in making a more inclusive community
