I noticed in all those fandoms post they miss many awesome fandoms, so reblog if you see your fandom here (if not, add it)
I don’t think a single person on this website can not reblog this.
Literally most of my favorite things

Hello everyone, I appologize for bringing up yet another financial issue but this is a serious problem for me because these rats are part of my family and I’m doing all I can for them but it’s not enough.
Ivan, the one with the lump there, has been on antibiotics for the past 2 weeks or so but his lump isn’t going away. In fact, it’s getting bigger.
The problem is, his vet bills were upwards of 180 dollars already, and on top of that, his cage mate Ichabod has gotten a respiratory infection (This is common in rats but also deadly as it can make them suffocate to death if it’s not tended to)
Here is a clip of what Ichabod’s breathing is currently like: http://jitterbugjive.tumblr.com/post/99649306804
Ivan’s cyst might need to go in for analysis so they can diagnose it properly, and he may be looking at an operation so overall costs could go up in the 300s, and the medication for Ichabod tends to cost around 60 dollars from what I’ve experienced in the past.
I love my babies, I really do, and I want to help them so badly but the costs are just so overwhelming right now and I’m asking if anyone would be willing to help them out.
I’m taking Ivan to the vet tomorrow, but I want to be able to take Ichabod as well so he can get medicine. But I need money to do that, money I don’t currently have because I’ve spent a good deal of what I have right now in order to sell prints at Ponyville Ciderfest and this all happened at once out of nowhere. It was really awful timing, and I’m working on so many projects and things that I owe that I just can’t pile more on myself right now.
So please, if anyone wants to donate to help cover these vet bills, I would be very grateful, and I’m sorry there isn’t much else I can offer right now in exchange for my gratitude since I’m practically bled dry on what I can do.
To donate, go to http://lovestruck-derpy.tumblr.com/ and click the donate button.
And if you can’t donate, please spread the word, thank you.
Alright, so today’s visit cost $134 since it was for 2 rats and a medication for Ichabod
Ivan is the one I’m most concerned about, he’s going to be getting surgery to remove the lump on thursday but estimates are ranging pretty drastically depending on what exactly they are removing.
The estimate they gave me was $274-$640, due to anesthesia, the surgery, lab prep, and pain meds. The big kicker is depending on if its a cyst or a tumor, since the procedure is different for each, so it could be no charge for that or up to $138 on top of the other fees
So, yes, again, donations would still be highly appreciated. If people are doubtful I can scan the estimates and receipt for the visit thus far.
Two days left until Ivan goes in for surgery. Anything helps, thank you so much.
You know most people think of the word weasel as a bad term, but have you ever looked at an actual weasel? Like, a real one?
it’s so cute!
Oh god I just can’t-
And let’s not forget that the average weasel is also roughly the size of a banana. Because it clearly wasn’t adorable enough already
i learned from tv that if you put a weasel in your pants it’ll burrow into your asshole
"Nah, I’m pretty sure you look like…"

Actually I am a human. You just thought I was a pony and I never bothered correcting you.
i wasn’t going to do this but,
Gather ‘round children i have a story to tell.
this is my niece.
She just turned seven April 8th. Some of you probably have seen this picture already but its one of the only ones i got of her so meh.
My niece is in the target demographic for MLP. She adores the show. Her favorite ponies are Pinkie and Fluttershy, and she can do any line from any episode if you ask.
Now I’m not gonna really go into detail, but this kid’s been through a lot. And the few times I get to see her, she immediately reaches for the remote so she can turn on the DVR. Pony is her escape from her life. She loves it so much. And she never really had anyone to share it with until she started coming over.
We sing songs together, color together, watch episodes together you name it. If it has to do with pony, we’ve done it. And it makes her so happy to the point that when its time to go back home, she doesn’t want to leave.
Why am i bringing this up?
Well I’ll explain. A few people know this story already but ill tell it anyway. My niece loves Equestria Girls, the movies and the song that was a parody of California Gurls. Now, one listen, she heard Pinkie say, “Bronies hang out too!” And she asked me what bronies were.
I told her they were men and women but mostly men a bit older than her who watched the show. She practically shit herself with excitement. She was ecstatic. “Show me! Show me!” She said. So I showed her pictures of cosplayers and videos from Bronycon and I swear I never saw her so happy in her life. She didn’t see these people as a threat. She didn’t think they were “stealing” the show away from her. She was so happy because there were people just like me who she could talk to, and not get shhhed or have to explain everything.
The next time I saw her she kept bringing me things: her Fluttershy Build-A-Bear, the toy Pinkie she got from McDonald’s, the Rarity brushable I brought her. I asked her why she was giving me this stuff and she said “Here! Now you can share these things with your brony friends!”
She wanted me to share these things with grown people. It’s kind of hilarious when you think about it, but it kind of warmed my heart. Because she doesn’t have much when it comes to pony stuff. (I buy her things when I can.) But she was so willing to let go of them for a while because she wanted me to share them with my brony friends.
Kids don’t care if grown men watch My Little Pony. Kids see me walk around in my pony shirts and run up screaming and giggling like idiots. They love the fact that they can talk to so many people about what they like. My niece barely knows anything about the brony fandom and welcomed it with open arms.
That’s how it’s supposed to be.
When kids are less judgmental then some grown people on here, that should really say something about you, and your attitude.
this is beautiful
This is wonderful!
ppl who seriously believe every guy who watched MLP must be sexualizing the ponies make me extremely angery.
Accurate comic is killin it.
this comic literally makes no sense. also the fact that op made the women’s justifiable anger a fucking exaggeration is disgusting.
the brony fandom is made up of middle-aged dudes who sexualize a show made for young girls and literally took it away from them and stomped it to pieces. now i’m not saying that every brony is like that, however, what i’m saying is that it’s not a girl’s fault if she’s wary of you if you call yourself a brony because fucking face it; the majority of bronies is made up of these assholes who constantly demean women and make rape jokes. does a brony have to deal with those kinda things? no, no they fucking don’t. don’t you dare try to deny this because they don’t. also guess what, women get a lot of shit for liking “traditionally” male things such as comic books and have to deal with all this “fake geek girl” nonsense among numerous other offensive things. honestly, how the fuck are you comparing a male’s hurt feelings to an entire culture of women being denied anything they remotely like ever? grow the fuck up.
tl;dr: bronies who actually are nice and respectful are hard to come by therefore it is not a woman’s fault if she is wary around one. stop fucking complaining and instead of trying to shame a woman for something she is justifiably angry for, fucking do something about it so that women don’t have to do that anymore.
now i’m not saying that every brony is like that
No, that’s exactly what you’re saying.
Look, I don’t pretend to know you or what you’ve been through: maybe you hopped on the hate and bullying disguised as “feminist” that this website loves to spread…it really doesn’t matter because right now? you’re embarrassing yourself: you’re embarrassing yourself acting like the faux-feminists who overrun this website.
The Brony community hasn’t “stolen” anything: the show was re-imagined by Lauren Faust who intended it for EVERYONE: for children, adults and parents of said-children, animation fans…everyone. She disagreed with the hateful man-hating fake-feminists that you’ve clearly shown yourself to be. She literally went out of her way to make a whole episode on Powerpuff Girls where a female supervillain convinced the girls that women aren’t anywhere near as respected as men and thus, the ‘right’ answer, was to let her go rampaging across the city. They proceeded to lash out at virtually every man they came across, bullying the boys at school and getting mad at the Professor for simply telling them to clean their rooms, but were persuaded when they were reminded that there is indeed injustice in the world: it’s there duty to protect the safety of *everyone*.
What happened? She was harassed by people with attitudes like yourself and now regrets ever writing it.
You want to go even further in history? Bonnie, the woman who started it all and created My Little Pony in the 1980’s, commented that she intended for the show to be both for boys *and* girls.
The Brony community is not made up of middle-aged out-of-control monstrous horndogs who have stolen one more precious thing from women. If anything, the community is mostly made up of college-age kids who, like this comic portrays, simply enjoy the show for being the well-written, positive and sophisticated show that it is.
Thousands and thousands of dollars have been put into charity groups such as “BronyForGood”. Radio-shows like “Stay Brony My Friend” by DustyKat and Screwball regularly have guests where money is donated to a cause in virtually every single episode. Donating to charity is something that’s done in virtually every single Brony convention.
But what about that so-called sexual content you brought up?
Honey, I don’t pretend to know every NSFW artist/writer/whatever out there, but from my experience? The vast majority of NSFW artists are teenage girls. I don’t have any statistics right next to me, but this is what I have seen in the 3 years I’ve been in this fandom: the majority of NSFW art is done by girls, whereas NSFW fan-fiction is mostly done by men.
And really? Who cares?
What sort of point were you trying to make there in the first place? There’s porn out of EVERYTHING, and there always will be. If it’s because you are worried about what your child sees, then put up safe-search, put up filters, and watch what they do. Don’t stomp your foot and demand that the world censors and changes itself to your liking, because it’s just not going to happen.
Oh, was your point because MLP having a male fan-base just another sign that Men are these monstrous horndogs overtaking everything?
Well, since you had your bit: let me tell you the kind of media that *I* grew up watching. Media with guys who look like this:
Media with these super big macho men that, I don’t know where you’ve been? But I’ve never EVER seen any guys who actually look like that.
Frankly, I’ve been lucky, because I DO know lots of guys who had to live with this: live with this stigma that this is the sort of “man” you had to grow up to be. This macho-man caricature that you’re putting out where a Man has to slave for his whole life, pay for everything a woman wants, get married, have children, drink beer, and be this impossible fantasy that you’re putting out right now.
Where I haven’t been so lucky? Being teased and bullied because, while I did enjoy ‘manly’ shows (and certainly enjoy Marvel/DC), I also happened to like shows like these:
These were the kinds of shows that I grew up watching and completely adored. Why? Honestly, for the same reason I enjoy MLP: they were funny, well-written, positive and uplifting shows with great characters (and Jerry from Totally Spies was awesome. Just saying.)
And I was ridiculed for it and had to hide it away and force myself to watch other stuff, especially when other people were in the house. I babysat my cousin while she would watch her “girly” shows and when she’d get bored and go away, I’d turn down the volume and quietly continued to watch on my own.
Teasing however, as bad as it was, was all that I got: other people like Michael Morones got so much *much* worse. When kids are tormented because of a backpack they bring to school, teased to the point of nearly ending their lives, it spits in the face of everything you are saying.
I’m not saying all this to evangelize the Brony community: I’m by no means the absolute biggest fan, nor ever was — the fandom undoubtedly has it’s own share of problems, as does every other. However, what I will absolutely not stand for is the sort of biased and uniformed hate that you are bringing out. I don’t pretend to know you or what you’ve been through, but it’s unbelieveably one-sided and not at all helping women or genuine feminism: because Feminism isn’t bashing on guys just-because. It’s equality for EVERYONE. It’s, once more, similar to the Powerpuff Girls episode: because the girls tried to counter by saying that “girls have to look out for eachother”, but then *other women* stepped up and said that the supervillain wasn’t looking out for *them*. She certainly wasn’t looking out for other women when she robbed the bank.
Do you really think you’re looking out for other women with your attitude right now?
Would it blow your mind if I said that I was a feminist? It really shouldn’t — I don’t want another little boy or girl to grow up with archaic societal ideas about how men and women are “supposed” to act and are ridiculed if they desire to like anything remotely “masculine” or “feminine”, whether it’s liking comic book superheros or shows with bad-ass female high-school teenagers.
What about you? are you really helping other women?
Or just yourself?
^^^THIS THIS THIS!!!
Only a sick bastard wouldn’t reblog this.
So many people i loved have passed away by this little motherfucker.
