WHAT IS THE INTERNET, EVEN? I work for it, and I can't answer this question.

While we've previously discussed the proud legacy of the bronies, a.k.a. bros who like My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (who counts Andrew W.K. among their ranks), there's something to be said for the Internet's infamous Rule 34: if it exists, there's doubtlessly a sexual fetish for it.


A man who refers to himself as the "fiancé" of purple pony Twilight Sparkle has contacted a user by the handle of Kevinsano on the online forum Deviant Art to stop drawing his pony-fiance in degrading sexual situations. It's the oldest story in the world: two men who, under slightly different circumstances might have been the best of friends thanks to one major shared interest, find themselves battling for the affection of the cartoon pony they both fantasize about fucking. It's how the Trojan War started, in fact.

In an email published in full, Mr. Sparkle (who enjoys taking his plush Twilight Sparkle on dates to "movies" and "vegetarian restaurants") writes:

"Don't get me wrong here. This isn't a jealousy thing. I'm very secure in my relationship. I know without question that Twilight is just as faithful to me as I am to her... she's very real to me and I know she's not sneaking out in the middle of the night to go have kinky sex with some famous artist. What bothers me is that in all these [...] images, Twilight is always depicted as if she was your sexual plaything. [...] Twiley is a sweet and fairly vanilla little mare who I treat with the utmost love and respect, and she definitely does not deserve to be portrayed as some kind of sexual slave who likes being dressed up in sleazy attire, wearing a collar, getting sodomized and having her face ejaculated on. She's not into that kinda stuff."

I smell a Madonna/whore/cartoon pony complex. In conclusion, Mr. Sparkle:

"would really appreciate it if the next time your birthday comes around you would request that your clop artist friends (who like to give you sexually oriented pony art as gifts) draw some pony other than Twilight Sparkle for you."


Friendship is NOT magic.

So weekend Jez is just all MRA trolls? Blech.

This truly heartwarming story (seriously, I bear no ill will toward people who are sexually satisfied by only their imagination, as long as it doesn't turn into either of these guys hanging out around a barn trying to make the dream come true) has inspired a couple of questions for me, though. 1. Is mare the correct term for a female unicorn? She's not a horse. Likewise, can you call a little unicorn a pony? We don't call miniature donkeys ponies. Also, 2. Why does she have eyelashes on the top of one eye but the bottom of the other?

ETA: We have come a long way when Mr. Sparkle can call someone who dates outside of her species "fairly vanilla." Dan Savage must be proud.
