It started out simply. Horse News posted the picture above, to tumblr, with this message.
Simple enough. If anyone, we expected a "down with molestia" advocate to have jumped on this.
But no, we got Tristan.
Who is Tristan?
THAT is Tristan. Now let's see what Tristan does.
Now, Tristan here opens by calling what the couple in the photo are wearing "indecent", by which he means the clothing qualifies as indecent exposure. We here at Horse News think that is a rather silly idea, considering the amount of clothing each of the individuals is wearing in public, is actually MORE clothing than one would expect to see on someone wearing a bathing suit. A swimsuit, which is socially acceptable attire in Southern California, especially at the likes of a Comic-Con typically only covers the breasts and genitalia of females and only the genitalia of males. In this cosplay, not only are these areas covered, but the female is also wearing long stockings, and a knee-length cape, making her more "decent" by anyone's definition of the word. Instead of arguing all of this however, we link Tristan a simple comparison to show how silly his statement seems.
Now, at no point was any accusation made against this person, no words beyond those written on this image macro are exchanged. And Tristan has officially lost it.
Oh fuck, man the boats everyone we have a live one.
We know we have a trophy here and he's coming right toward us.
Holy shit, he's landed in the boat.
The question above was posed by another tumblr user, and out of the box, Tristan claims that Horse News has "classified" him as a "sexist piece of shit", and a "douchebag" and has now called out the entire brony fandom in the process.
At no point thusfar did the Horse News account even post words to Tristan, much less call him names.
Grab your popcorn, he's not done yet.
We're going to need a bigger boat. Now, without any written response, the issue is about "men's logic", "homophobia", and gender politics.
IT JUST KEEPS HAPPENING
Is he mentally challenged, or just not being challenged mentally?
We'll leave that to the Jury.
Other people tried to get him to cut his losses.
He wouldn't listen.
He hasn't posted since. Maybe the kitchen got too hot.
Who want's fish sticks?
update: HE'S BACK
Update: The Molestia Cosplayer has caught wind of this article. And it is glorious.

I’m actually the Princess Molestia cosplayer, someone called this post from HorseNews to my attention on Facebook, so I made myself a Tumblr for myself just so that I can join in on all this fun! :D I’m here to answer a few basic questions:
1. My name is Ashley, my MLP OC is Kaleido_scope the Asshole Unicorn. I’m relatively new to the cosplaying scene and absolutely LOVE it so far! Some may ask why I decided to do the Princess Molestia cosplay with lingerie. The answer is quite simple: Molly would have too right? ;D In all seriousness though, it exposes the sexist idiots like Tristan for who they really are, that and I am an anti-feminazi. I am so tired of everyone bitching about “equal rights”, yet throwing a massive butthurt fit when a woman like me walks around in my Molestia cosplay because we are “objectifying ourselves to men” (*coughs* massively jealous because said butthurt people are usually walrus sized) I’m an openly gay woman that actually did it to attract other girls to me, and guess what? It worked just like I wanted it to! :D The point I made was that you don’t bitch about men cosplaying in their underwear, so which one is it? Are you REALLY for equal right or are you just a flaming man/woman-hating hypocrite with a moral crusading stick up your ass?
2. No, we were not kicked out of the con. I actually live in the Los Angeles area, so I already knew that literally nobody would give a shit. We did get a few strange looks from some parents, but other than that we got a hugely positive response and our picture was taken over and over again, so don’t be surprised if you see us on other websites besides Tumblr ;)
3. Princess Molestia was one of my favorite blogs of all time (and still is)! I absolutely love offending butthurt idiots like Tristan. I knew if I did a bait cosplay like Molestia that it would get massively popular because of and in spite of idiots like him/her (I can’t really tell what the fuck you are, Mr.”I am a powerful warrior with incredible speed and strength”! Could you REALLY be any more of a loser??) and speaking of Tristan:
4. To the sexist butthurt faggle of an idiot named Tristan that took my obvious cosplay bait: Fuck you, it’s a cosplay for Chris’sakes! Get off your moral high horse (hehehe, horse puns!) and stop being such a virgin, I mean who WOULDN’T want to look at a hot chick parading around in lingerie, or are you an even bigger faggot than I am? If you don’t like it, you know that you don’t have to look at it right? But I do want to say THANK YOU for making me even more popular than I already am and entertaining me with your massively butthurt display, reading the comments was absolutely hilarious man! I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for butthurt idiots like yourself! :D
I’m new to Tumblr, so I guess now that I have one I may as well tell everyone that loved my Molestia cosplay to follow me on here and I’ll post even more sexy awesome cosplays to this blog! ;)
Also feel free to add me on Facebook, at Anime Los Angeles I’ll be cosplaying as Kamui Senketsu Ryuko from Kill La Kill AND will also be doing the Princess Molestia cosplay again very soon, and next time I’ll make it even 20% cooler! :D
That is all. :3
