This weekend at Crystal Mountain Pony Con was amazing! I got to meet Andrea Libman (voices of Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy) and Michelle Creber (voice of Applebloom). I had so much fun and I’m looking forward to next year!
Time for yet another rant about fandoms being childish:
Guys- I’ve seen some things concerning the SU fandom and the most recent episode that are worrying me. It’s something that I’ve also seen happen in other fandoms so I’ll address it now.
Firstly, and I find the fact that I have to say this or you’ll just brush this post aside absolutely fucking ridiculous: I’m not cis.
Secondly, it’s absolutely fine to headcanon a character as trans. As non binary. As whatever the fuck you want. I personally have headcanon’d characters as several gender identities that weren’t cis in the past. That’s fine, that’s awesome even. But you do not. I repeat. You do NOT force your headcanon into other people. No matter how noble you think it is. People have the RIGHT to headcanon and interpret a character whichever way they want. If you do, I’m sorry you’re just being a huge jerk. And for what? You think our headcanons will make a difference in the show at the end of the day? No, no they won’t. All you’re doing is making this fandom less enjoyable by starting fights and forcing ideas onto others. And forcing ideas will always only result in people pushing said idea away, you’re really only shooting at your own foot there, other than being a pest.
I’d say it’s also not cool to go around shooting down other people’s headcanons if you don’t agree but if you’re FORCING them onto other people or being a passive aggressive piece of shit (”ooohh this is making cis people mad keep doing it!” - seriously are you fucking 5? This is so incredibly childish.), I can’t really fault them for reacting.
In sum: grow up, have your fun with people who enjoy what you do and let the people who don’t enjoy what THEY like in peace. Talk about your headcanons like adults, if you want to be treated like so.
I custom painted this large MLP figure in a blue galaxy/nebula theme with acrylic paint, crystals and enamel. Her mane and tail also glow in the dark! She’s for sale too if you want to give her a home~
