MLP comics give shout out to known anti-fandom artist (UPDATES) by


Art by Cutosphere/Dragondicks

First video games, then hand egg. Now, at last the special snowflake tumblrinas have spread thier infection to the IDW MLP comics.

The troubling developments after the break.


SJW's ruin everything

With the new IDW comic out, it seems that there was an OC cameo that has everyone pondering if IDW actively supports hatred and misandry, and "killing of all bronies".

Meet Dragon Dicks


Dragon Dicks is the rant-blog/be-a-dick-to-people blog for the artist "Cutosphere" (which there is a reason she has a separate blog for it, as the extremist views might turn people off to her work). It is worth mentioning that this person was also one of the biggest supporters of the "Down With Molestia" movement, (which was time and again proven to be no more than a cry for attention from April "PinkiePony" Davis). Take a look at a small sample of the anti-brony messages that Dragon Dick's is famous for.






 Although many believe that the IDW comic series is not canon, we can thank one of the staff for further legitimizing the claim that it is; a Mr. Ted Anderson. Ted is the writer of the latest My Little Pony comic issue. A series of posts has people believing that Ted was the one who contacted Dragondicks/Cutosphere, and believes bronies are "gross". He is seen here holding a copy of the comic in question, and wearing a shirt that reads "literally anything before bros", featuring one of the popular anti-brony "mouthpiece" images that was circulating earlier this year.


Dragondicks brags about her OC "Glitter Punch" being included in the comic, and directly thanks Ted for including it.
Bigotry is now canon
When it was reported that DragonDick's OC was in the comic, many concerned readers went to the IDW forums for a answer to why would the comic maker would allow someone who actively hates the fandom to be included in the latest issue, and all they received was a basically pre-made PR response.



As mentioned earlier, it is now widely believed that Ted Anderson might be the staffer who Dragondicks/Cutosphere was contacted by, agreeing that bronies and male fans of mlp are "gross and scum" as mentioned in the tumblr post:



Fans are succinctly outraged at this slight against them, in the official media.
We will bring any new developments as they unfold.

Update: Bobby Curnow addresses situation


Ted Anderson responds

Update: For those who do not know, The artist that Ted is referring to - David McGuire - is a comic artist for a webcomic called "Gastrophobia". He also draws pony art like this:

    2. If I were to say "tnuc wej yhtlif" that would be both reverse racism and reverse sexism. Racism and sexism against white males is still racism or sexism.

    1. Nice damage control, DragonDicks.

      Nobdy would have noticed this if you had kept your mouth closed, but noooo....
      You HAD to brag and now Ted is up to his neck in shit thanks to you.

      Delete
    2. No, if he's 'up to his neck in shit', it's his own damn fault.

      Although, the more likely scenario is IDW giving 0 fucks about one of their employees promoting misandry & insulting the people they want to BUY the damn books.

      I'll be completely honest. I normally pirate the comics, then buy the TPBs when they come out. Not anymore. Not only will I no longer be buying MLP, I'll no longer be buying Star Trek, Transformers, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And if they still had the Doctor Who license I'd stop buying that, too.

    5. So you think we should just continue to support someone who supports people who encourage violence against us? That makes as much sense as a gay man donating money to the Westboro Baptist Church.

    6. Don't forget that cuteosphere thinks rape porn is fine and the fetishization of sexual assault somehow doesn't spread "rape culture".

      I wonder would Hasbro would think about this? What PR nightmare this could be if the parents who buy their merchandise knew what sort of person certain IDW employees were supporting...

    4. Ja wohl! I am shocked that I have not yet been included, as my inspiring message of liberation for Earth Ponies is also inverting the standard message of unicorn solidarity as a form of culture jamming! After all, it is clear that in Equestria, racism can only be unicorn- or pegasus-on-Earth pony.

  8. Wait a second... is it just me or is her OC portrayed as a villain? I mean, why is she wearing a spiked collar? Either she's evil or she's a dominatrix. In that case, maybe Ted Anderson is being secretly backhanding Dragon Dicks and calling her an evil dominatrix (they go together more than you'd think) and he's just letting her think it is a compliment. Or maybe he is pretending to like her because she has those incriminating pictures of him, and she blackmailed her way into the strip. Or maybe she stole her OC from someone else and Anderson is actually referencing little known tumblr user 'Johnny R. Ockhard'.

    Or maybe I'm so stupid and delusional that I can't tell when somebody has gone full Literally Who. Either way, I'm screwed like Roxanne.

    1. Buy/download the comic and find out yourself. Either way, dd wouldn't mind if her oc were portrayed as a villain. Villains are cool.

    2. The character looks like that because that's how she draws her. It seriously looks like they just traced her art and coloured it differently.
      And we know Anderson is referencing her because he's reblogged from her, and bought the shit she sells.

      Delete
    3. Alright, so given the update, now I've got a new theory: Ted Anderson is either a SJW or he is so damn clueless about what DD produces that he's been sucked into the Asshole of Ignorance and thinks her stuff is 'satire'.

      I'm still screwed.

  11. I'm still pretty sure creators probably don't pay nearly as much attention to the fandom as we think they do, and probably aren't bothered by the same things we are. I have to wonder if Ted just thought the shirt was funny in a sort of ironic way.

    I'm still annoyed that this happened, mind you. I just don't think they're quite aware of who's who in the fandom.

  12. DragonDicks is awful. She has a long history of ranting about "rape culture" and how she cares about all rape victims... and when one doesn't agree with her she screams that they clearly are not raped and that they made it up or are just using it to win arguments.
    She cares about rape victims... so long as they agree with everything she says.

    1. Yeah, she literally told me my 'rape didn't count' because I find rape jokes therapeutic.
      Still better than her cuntbuddy AD telling me I needed to be 'raped again' until I agreed with them.

    2. Wow. WOW. Your "rape didn't count"? FUCK her. Hell, people undergo trauma of all kinds, and one of the easiest ways to move past it is to make it smaller by joking about it. No one needs to live in constant fear, misery and terror because of one horrible event in their life.

      What a bitch.

    3. Oh god. I would like to say I'm surprised, but really that is just DragonDicks being DragonDicks. I'm sorry she and her nasty piece of shit friend said those horrible things to you.

      For someone who prattles on about "rape culture" she sure does have a nasty habit of telling rape victims that they are liars when they dare not bow down and lick her boots.

    4. Thank you, and you know something? When my past came up on tumblr, especially during the Molestia shit, who was it telling me to kill myself, that my rape didn't count, that men can't be raped? tumblr.

      Who was it being sympathetic, kind, and basically giving me encouragement to carry on? 4chan.

    5. My sympathies to you, anon 2/4. The world's an awful place, full of awful people, but I promise you it's not all bad. Just steer clear of these hypocritical Tumblr cunts in future. There's only pain to be found there.

    6. Tumblr generally only cares about rape victims as props. When those props get uppity and don't let tumblr feminists speak for them, they are snarled at to shut up and stop enabling rape or that they weren't really raped. DragonDicks is no exception.

      Delete
    7. And at the risk of sounding like a broken record, there was that time where she said there's nothing wrong with rape porn and that it's okay to fetishize rape.

      By the way, third (?) anon about me? The supposed "rape victim"? I know who you are, you manipulative little chickenshit. You knocked some bitch up, you whined "rape" because you're too much a fucking pussy to raise a kid, then you keep going on about how you're going to kill yourself and/or leave the internet forever because no one else takes fucking MLP as seriously as you.

    2. Oh, it's in the Annual. I was looking in issues 21 and 22 of the main series. I haven't yet purchased the Annual, but coincidentally, I was already planning on it being my last purchase of MLP comics to save money. Before this news hit, I was planning on going to the comic shop tomorrow and cancelling future holds under my name, for that reason "to save money". But the real reason was also because in addition to saving money, I figured I could get the comics online as PDFs later. This news just seals the deal for me.

    3. That's the spirit, don't give them any money.
      Spread this news to get sure they lose as many sales possible.

      Because at the end of the day, IDW's staff gives zero fucks about the comic's quality, or if it crashes against the cartoon's canon, or if their artists are assholes, or if the readers are tired of their shit.
      Zero fucks to all of that.

      The only thing that can get a reaction from them is money, and if the comic sells less because of this incident, well.
      Then they will give one fuck for every lost sale.

      Delete
    4. Hate to break it to you, but that's kind of the point. Creating quality work is important, but so is bringing food home to their families, paychecks for their bills, and payoff for their work. It is honestly not easy being an artist, and the fact that they have a fanbase to begin with is something to be admired.

      Delete
    5. I hate to break it you you as well, but when a paid worker is doing a bad job or breaks the company's internal rules, he either gets sanctioned or fired.
      Your work carries the company's name on it, so fucking up means fucking up your company as well.

      You will understand this the day you get a job and learn about responsbilities instead of being a brave and independent carefree special snowflake..

  14. I vaguely recall that dragondickhead had a close call with an appendectomy last year. This was around the time that they were getting more and more preachy with their social justice vomit thanks in part to the DWM bullshit.

    Does getting your appendix removed turn you into a butthurt thirty-something that has nothing better to do other than rant like a little child all day on a blog? I guess it does.

    And yeah, if IDW doesn't do something about this, they can kiss my cash goodbye forever. Just as I was ready to start getting back into their comics, this neckbearded twat goes and plays the "friends with benefits" card for dickhead, the colossal faggot that's so colossal, they made hardened brony haters QUIT hating on bronies thanks to their amazingly retarded logic (shout out to miss mulp).

    You know that if people think crazy bronies aren't anywhere as bad as social justice warriors, there's something really fucking wrong with the social justice warriors.

    But seriously, what the heck?! Are people in the industry becoming retarded? Why did they do this? Why? Were they lobotomized?

    4. There's a difference between 'expressing your opinion' and 'potentially exposing children to hatespeech'. Kids read this stuff, their parents let them go to this guy's blog, sees the stuff he reblogs and the people he reblogs from, and suddenly they think it's ok to physically harass any boy who likes something girly. Which, yes, one of the things this guy reblogged advocates.

      Delete
    5. So, are creators of children's entertainment should not be allowed to post family unfriendly stuff on their blogs?
      And how would this barely noticeable cameo make kids exposed to hate speech?

    6. We're not going to police him. We're going to vote with our wallets, and just not pay for his dreck. Sure, right now it won't make a dent in their profits, but if old Teddy and co. do this crap more often then more and more people will get fed up with it. In the end, we have rights as consumers to buy or not buy something. And if the creators don't want to go under, they'd better make damn sure they don't piss off those consumers.

      Delete
    7. Of course they shouldn't. Nickelodeon fired the voice of Leonardo from Ninja Turtles for posting inappropriate tweets. The actions of an employee have a direct effect on the company that employs them. There's this little thing called professionalism. Blogs are a public forum.
      And the cameo was also pointed out on the blog, complete with links to dragondicks' blog, so any kids following a writer of their favorite comic is being given a direct link to hate speech.

    8. "It still falls under freedom of expression."

      The same freedom of expression that allows us to call somebody on his bullshit, legbeard.

    11. Then how do I earn a living? I smell a "libertarian" manchild.
      The distribution of power in our society is such that corporations can fuck people around without reprecursions.Right now you want the corporation to persecute its employee for his views that he posted in his personal tumblr. Sure, his views are questionable, but come on. Many people here visit 4chan and have views much more extravagant than those of your typical radfem. This could happen to any of us.

      You don't get to throw rocks around and then hide your slingshot when you get people pissed off. And that's what all of those deranged tumblerinas do: play the internet tough guy card to sperg and bully people around, only to start crying, demanding rights and bringing out the long words when all the shit they spray around finally comes back to bite them in their XXXL ass.

    14. Well, their opinion that Teddy should face reprecussions is wrong and I said it. We are going around in circles.

      If you think that words should be fought with anything but words you are against freedom of speech, period. I don't agree with what Teddy and Cuteosphere have said (although I appreciate the toxic humor), and I will at any time argue against their views, but that's it. Arguing against the views that you don't like is the only acceptable way to fight against them. Killing, beating, imprisoning and ruining someone's career for their views is totalitarian.

      P.S. think of cuteosphere as feminist Wyatt Mann.

      Delete
    15. Read a book, anon. Or at least a webcomic. http://xkcd.com/1357/
      Both "freedom of speech" and "totalitarianism" refer to government. If what Ted Anderson wrote offends readers, of course they're within their rights to stop reading, and let IDW know. And if it therefore materially harms his employer (if enough people boycott IDW's best-selling title) of course they're within their rights to take action to protect their interests.

      TBH, I'm not certain this should be a fireable offence - all he did was include an OC, and it wasn't a Hitler or Bin Laden pony. (I'm also not certain it shouldn't be; his comments imply he knew he'd piss people off, so what the hell?) But FFS he's a *writer* - everything he does at work is "speech" - so by your warped logic he and all writers should be unfireable no matter what sort of garbage they churn out - it's all "free speech". He could turn in issue after issue of 24 pages of "fuck IDW, fuck MLP, fuck bronies" over and over again, and IDW would have to keep paying him for that unprintable garbage "because freedom of speech". What you say also implies that someone who verbally abuses their coworkers or spouse shouldn't be fired or divorced. The worst anyone should ever experience as a result would be, "Hey! C'mon!"

      There are miles and miles between those repercussions which we'd all agree are appropriate, and your straw man repercussions of "killing, beating, imprisoning" which we'd all agree aren't. (And which I happily haven't seen anyone advocate, though I haven't read every single comment.) Your argument doesn't show any subtlety or any understanding of the real world.

    17. This shouldn't have been a fireable offence.

      >Blah blah first amendment
      I don't care, I'm not American. Even if I was American, I wouldn't hold a piece of paper to a sacred status. What I care about is people being actually able to speak their mind.

      Thinking that only government can affect your freedom of speech is an extremely naive view, which betrays thinking in line with this particularly American, corporation-firendly, ideology of Libertarianism. In reality, corporations have the power to apply censorship; anyone who had to deal with Youtube knows this.

      Yes, companies should be able to contol what their their emplyees produce as part of their job. (Although in reality the industry is exploitative, and companies want all control and no responsibility, which they impose in contracts.) But honestly, the only part of this whole fiasco that has to do with Ted's professional actions is the tiny cameo that nobody would've even noticed. It seems that people just wanted to punish Ted for being an "SJW".

  21. I've had dealings with DragonDicks. I liked her Cuteosphere art and she has a knack for a zippy phrase, but she's obnoxious, bigoted and offensive. It's also incredibly divisive and short-sighted to include *any* fan OC, let alone one from such an unpopular artist.

    2. at least the bronies don't want to 'hate-fuck' the world (wonder how that'd go over the with the environmentalists). Dragon Dicks seems like a dick and all the SJWs who hate on bronies have skewed logic.

      Delete
    3. So, I've followed the "Glitter Punch"-gate for a while and came to the conclusion: not different at all. As a result of the fan uprising on the IDW forums there will be no more fan references in future comics and Ted got a shaft because of this thing being blown out of any reasonable proportions (I wonder what kind of opinion he has on bronies now). So, I guess, we bronies can hurt people just as much as the rabid SJW cunts if not more...

    4. If you think this level of unprofessionalism was 'blown out of proportion', you're a fucking idiot. He got off easy. He shouldn't have a job after the he's done in the comic and on his blog

  25. Well that does it for me. I've been an avid supporter of IDW for quite some time now. Ninja turtles, star trek, doctor who, ghostbusters, and pony. Haven't missed an issue of either of them, and all are physical copies bought from the comic book store. I've braved ridicule from my peers to support IDW.

    I believe in equality. No matter what your race or gender, you are equal in my eyes. There isn't much a man can do that a woman can't, if anything really. And vice versa. But blind hatred and bigotry is blind hatred and bigotry, no matter who it comes from. A woman advocating the death of all men is just as bad as a sexsist asshole that advocates rape. If IDW is now supporting these monsters, they can say goodbye to my money, and my support.

    The fact that My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, a show made by a genuine feminist that opposes all of DragonDicks' insanity, is now advocating it in an official product is disgusting. I'm very disappointed and I'm sorry to say goodbye to them.

    2. Wasn't Yamino's thing just a random variant cover? That's shitty, yes, but it's a bit different from someone who WRITES for the comics, as in does work on the actual comics themselves instead of just the covers, and is an actual employee rather than a freelancer, advocating the physical assault of his readers.
      When you get right down to it, Yamino's Derpy bitching was, while idiotic, misguided but well-intentioned. What Dragondicks and Ted have done is not only blatantly bigoted, it most places it would be seen as illegal, as it falls under the designation of hate speech. It is literally a call for violence towards a group of people (and if calling for violence towards bronies doesn't count, a call for violence towards men certainly does)

  30. The newest post from the comic editor:

    "I have been talking to Ted about the subject. More on that soon. I appreciate everyone's thoughts on the subject, and allowing me the time to investigate. To reiterate, it's my (and IDW's) goal to make these comics as inclusive as possible, to all people, of all ages. Obviously, the depiction of this background pony, regardless of intent, is counter to that goal.

    I will also discuss the subject of background ponies with the entire staff of the book. I always try and give the artists a good deal of freedom in this regard, as it is my opinion that the more fun they are having drawing, the more fun will translate to the page for the reader. That is obviously not what happened at all in this circumstance, and as such, we will be reviewing what is and isn't acceptable. At the end of the day, we want these books to be fun, and if that isn't what's happening, we need to review our approach.

    This is an evolving discussion, and I appreciate everyone's respect during it."

    While it's still left to be seen how they intend to handle the situation, at least at this point Ted's boss seem to be acknowledging that including that character was, for lack of a better term, a royal fuck-up.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Man, I really want to believe this is all just a huge misunderstanding. I mean, putting an OC in a comic is hardly espousing hatespeech. I just (downloaded and) read the annual yesterday, and I sure as hell didn't notice that panel, nor would I have recognized the character if I had. There's a big difference between "telling off bronies who are gross" and "telling off bronies, who are gross", and I'd like to think Mr. Anderson just isn't on the same page as this artist as to as whether that comma belongs there, if only because actively hating on your fanbase is about the dumbest decision to make.

    On the other hand, I'm now rethinking my decision to purchase the annual. Unless there's an update later on to clear things up, I may avoid buying comics written by Anderson in the future. Not like I've been buying a lot of them right now...

      "But your buddy Ted, who has one of your shirts and reblogs your stuff, says this is just satire and you don't mean any of it."

      So an artist that put her OC into an official comic, reblogs her stuff, and buys her shirts is quoted as saying (and won't admit to otherwise for the reason you just pointed out) that her work is purely satire. In other words, "Don't take her seriously." Think about that.

    7. I was anon #3, talking about thinking it was an overreaction. I think this really is a case of taking someone on the Internet too seriously. You're asking to fire someone because a bunch of nerds online got really upset at someone online they took too seriously.

      I see people getting upset because other people are suggesting that maybe y'all shouldn't take the Internet too seriously.

      Okay, what are we, Tumblr?

      (I don't like dragondicks, don't like their "humor", and I am a bit disappointed that someone's OC made it this easily into the comics. I'm honestly happy knowing that won't do it again.)

      Ted thinks Dragondicks is being satirical. Whether or not Dragondicks actually *is* or not, I think that says a lot about Ted's position. He doesn't take her words too seriously.

      Hell, I'll retweet shit not because I agree with it, but sometimes it's to show others. "Get a load of this bullshit". So I share, because I'm amused. That said, I don't think "retweeting/reblogging" is automatically implicit agreement with the content.

It's funny that a website that is so petty that they dropped EQD from its Friends list over posting SFW Cartoonlion, and almost had a schism over Bronibooru posting of SFW art drawn by artists like John Joseco (who has drawn NSFW art) is at least capable of talking to people and not going apeshit over invented drama.

      I mean, if it was satire it would be funny, but you are seriously getting emotionally invested over this.

      Let's be clear. Yes, the OC in question is tiny and barely noticeable, in the grand scheme of things probably noone would have noticed it if he hadn't blogged about it and she hadn't boasted. The point isn't that there was a front cover with femmepony screaming "I love misandry," it's the fact that the comic (and your money) is being used as a platform to openly support this stuff.

      It's approximately equivalent to the new female thor comic having a background cameo appearance from Rush Limbaugh giving a thumbs up and a nice big grin.

I heard he's got no job, girlfriend, friends, etc. So like most of the tumblrinas in similar situations, he has nothing better to do than be absorbed/obsessed with the lives of other people while wallowing in his own crapulence and trying, oh so desperately, to become "horse famous" by proxy.

    2 - Ted is a massive faggot someone should join the IDW forum to let him know
    3 - Let IDW know the extremist beliefs he is spouting he deserves at least a warning for running the company through the mud by representing them as a tumblr fag.

    1. By self-flagellating and/or throwing other men under the bus, one can temporarily absolve themselves of the Original Sin shared by all penis-bearers.

  60. The local mod changed his mind and began deleting/censoring posts to defend Anderson's ass.

    Welp, so they really don't want me to buy their comics anymore?
    OK.

    1. Then it's time hasbro gets involved. If IDW is going to poison the brands image by actively defending sexisim something needs to be done.

      Also, what does DragonDicks have to say about any of this? He basically dismisses everything she has ever done as satire. A joke. Not serious. Which means she actually likes bronys? Was she for Molestia then? And her "satire" was making fun of Pinkiepony? I haven't heard anyone say anything about her since this all began, surely she's made a "statement" by now.
