  1. My ponysona/main OC is bisexual like myself. Y’all?
  2. 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: 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!
  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. How do men and women romantically bond with each other? THESE ARE THINGS I HAVE READ ONLINE: Women can build incredible friendships and become very close to each other in a way men can't bond, and science shows that women can bond very well with each other. 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 man can isolate himself and grief alone. Women tend to be more emotional, more caring, more empathic, more compassionate, more affectionate, more loyal, more nurturing, more understanding, more sympathetic, more sensitive, more kind hearted, more peaceful, more calmer, more gentle, more expressive, and more outward 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. 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. Most women like to do affectionate things with their female friends like cuddling with them and holding their hands, while most men would never do affectionate things with their male friends (especially not cuddling with them or holding their hands). Men are usually much lonelier than women are. Men don't often talk about their personal problems with their male friends like how women do with their female friends. Females produce a lot more oxytocin than males do. And that's a reason why women tend to hug a lot more and be a lot more physically affectionate than men do. 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. 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. Most daughters have a very strong bond with their mother, while they don’t have one with their father, and most sons don’t have that strong of a bond with neither their mother nor their father. Most females have a very strong bond with their sisters, while they don’t have one with their brothers, and most males don’t have that strong of a bond with neither their sisters nor their brothers. 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. 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. 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, males and females are both mentally and physically different from each other, and that would effect the bonding between them.
  5. 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...
  6. So, uh yeah, just start assuming genders.
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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?
  10. 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?
  11. 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?
  12. This is something I draw when I had a conversation with DarkstarCyber. Lets Say.. It was a weird one. WIP Mist Blitz Genderbend Original
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. 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 ...
  21. 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
  22. 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)
  23. 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 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
