Op-Ed - Lauren's Gate: The Cult of Faust by

Editors Note:  NewsieLicious is a loose cannon Horse News Member that offers in-depth analysis on fandom culture. The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely his.

We pledge allegiance to the Faust...
Earlier this month at EQLA, MLP show creator Lauren Faust sat before an audience of some of the most fervent supporters she has enjoyed in her entire career. The announcement of her arrival had flooded social media with thousands of excited bronies wishing to see her in person, many for the first time ever. She had entered the room to a standing ovation from a crowd of almost two thousand adoring fans.

Yet, when asked about how the bronies felt about her, she sighed, saying it felt like we had forgotten her. That "all the work she did was for nothing".

The audience couldn't disagree more, and neither could I. Faust's name has attracted such clout and influence in our fan base that, despite her departure from the show itself, there's a cult of personality surrounding her name that won't soon disappear. Anything she supports, you can bet that thousands of Bronies will toss their hard-earned shekels at it with little, if any, critical thought.

In fact, I hear a few people are betting on that, to the tune of almost half a million dollars.



First, let's go back to this year's EQLA. Lauren was announced at the 11th hour, just over a week before the convention itself started. Nobody who saw the outburst of publicity from the fandom surrounding this announcement could argue that the fandom had "forgotten" Faust; it is arguable that her presence turned EQLA from "just another convention" to the most hotly discussed topic of the weeks surrounding the con.

Also announced at the very last minute was the convention's charity, which conveniently happened to be the Wildlife Learning Center just outside Los Angeles. This has been Lauren's "pet" charity for over a year now. This spring, she held an Indiegogo fundraiser for the center, catering specifically to fans of My Little Pony, raising $43,386 overall. The top tier perk, a $3,000-per-seat "MLP Writers Party" featuring Faust and friends, was claimed by 6 people. Bronies were breaking out their wallets in record numbers to support Faust and her cause.

A convention has lots of choices when it comes to charities, and many of those choices can affect the lives of the very fans who attend their convention. As young adults, the statistics show that the most dangerous thing in our lives is ourselves; that's where the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention comes in. Or maybe you want to speak up for LGBT rights by supporting the Human Rights Campaign. Hell, there's even Autism Speaks for the rest of us. Any of these have the very real potential to make a noticeable impact right here in our own fandom.

Never mind all those causes, though. For whatever reason, the convention went with the cute animals, and with Faust's help, they raised just over $9,000.

Was EQLA's charity choice a condition of Lauren's attendance? Did she urge a convention to change their charity at the last minute to serve her own personal interests? We may never know; after our last article, the convention staff has been "directed...not to respond" to any further questions we may have. With no other alternative, all we have left is rampant speculation!

See? I told you. Just over $9,000. No idea why they did that.

If over $50,000 worth of Brony support isn't enough to convince you that this fandom will gladly sacrifice themselves at the Altar of Faust, how about her status as a "Hero of the People"?

Bronies new and old know that Faust didn't exactly leave Hasbro on the best of terms. She has made her disdain for the company and the reasons for her departure fairly public, and in the process has become a folk hero for everyone with an axe to grind against big evil corporation Hasbro.

Just a few days ago, she rehashed this role in a letter to a little girl whose fan mail was shredded by Hasbro Studios:

The Galaxy Quest quote was a nice touch, too.
Nowhere is Faust's defiance of Hasbro more famous, though, than on February 8, 2013. A few days earlier, the fan project Fighting is Magic was issued a Cease & Desist from Hasbro. The team who created the game, Mane6, vowed to stop development immediately.

Lauren wasn't having any of this, though, and posed a question to the team:


Shortly afterward, the team announced that they would be making a brand new game, with Faust contributing her characters to replace the ponies the game previously featured.

...and here we are, two and a half years later. Not much had been heard from the Mane6 team, so it was assumed that they were hammering away at their new game.

Then, seemingly out of nowhere, a few weeks ago the Mane6 team went on an all-out marketing offensive to the public and, in particular, the Brony fandom. News sites posted about their upcoming fundraiser, they guest-starred in fandom podcasts, and their social media accounts lit up with back-and-forth commentary.

Thanks to the marketing, only 18 hours into their 30-day campaign, their IndieGogo fundraiser had already surpassed $100,000 in donations.

Definitely enough to move out of mom's basement...and build another house next door.
Make no mistake: the Mane6 team swears that none of this has anything to do with the My Little Pony fandom. They swear they aren't targeting our group directly for funds, or suggesting that the upcoming game is anything more than a "spiritual successor" to the free Fighting is Magic. It's just a game built by a team called "Mane 6", featuring 4-legged hooved mammals from a fantasy planet with magical abilities, and is the brainchild of Lauren Faust. Not the same at all.

For what it's worth, maybe they're right. After all, they don't have to invoke the name of MLP itself to rake in the dough; instead, all they need to do is repeat after me:
Lauren Faust.
Lauren Faust.
Lauren Faust.

Their IndieGogo page name-drops her no less than 11 times, from the project's tagline to its highest tier of rewards:



We're not implying anything with this picture; it's just the first result that popped up.
At the current rate, it looks very likely that the Mane6 crew, a young team of developers known only for the one free project they did for the Brony fandom, will be living effectively rent-free for the next 18 months, while they pursue their dreams of game creation.

In light of this, I leave you with some important questions to ask yourselves:

Why would nearly 2,000 people commit over $100,000 to an inexperienced team of developers making a game that is completely unremarkable, save for its origins and the name attached to it?

Is the Mane6 team riding on the coattails of Lauren Faust's name recognition to fund their own project where it would've otherwise flopped in an instant?

Are we, as a fandom, mindlessly following whatever Faust supports, because we feel like we owe it to her for making a show we like, or we feel guilty for what Hasbro did to her?

Is this really the wisest idea for us as a fandom? Are we denying ourselves the chance to do bigger and greater things with our collective money by chasing whatever cause célèbre our idols tell us to?


I can't answer these questions for you. You'd lynch me if you knew how I would answer, and maybe that proves my point even more. Just something to think about.

  3. This is a really stupid article. If people want to pay to support an indie game featuring her characters because they liked her work on MLP, big fucking deal. And so what if people would rather pay to an animal charity than for suicidal or autistic people? Get fucked

  7. All my interest with Mane6 flew out the window when they got themselves C&D'd. Fighting games barely interest me, and the only reason I cared about Fighting is Magic is that it was MLP-related.

    Like others have said the past couple of years: if Mane6 held in their spaghetti and didn't flaunt the game around mainstream conventions like EVO and whatever, we would be playing an actual Fighting is Magic right now.

    But they were stupid, made it garner too much attention, then Hasbro came and made them close it down. Shit like that is why anonymity is so important.

    And them saying that they're not aiming at bronies for funding is fucking hilarious. The vast majority of the FGC and gaming communities doesn't want them to succeed. Literally all they have are indie fags and bronies.

    Good fucking luck. I have a feeling that cash flow will plateau very quickly.

    Anyway, as for Faust herself, I wonder what la-la-land she's been in the last few years if she seriously thinks no one gives a damn about her or her contributions. I'd argue that damn near half of the fandom at least misses her, and at least half of that wants her back on the show since it just doesn't seem all that appealing anymore. There's a reason the fandom isn't as active anymore.

      Regarding Faust, it feels like she's been wanting a pity party since she quit; nobody can make me believe she doesn't know thousands obsess over her and treat her as an infallible godess, given the reactions she gets every time she does anything.

  10. Uh, Newsie. You're completely wrong
    :
    "Bronies new and old know that Faust didn't exactly leave Hasbro on the best of terms. She has made her disdain for the company and the reasons for her departure fairly public, and in the process has become a folk hero for everyone with an axe to grind against big evil corporation Hasbro."

    Sauce please? I SAW HER SAY on that documentary that "it was entirely her decision to leave" and while it was partly down to differences in where the show was going to what she wanted the show to be ("I couldn't tell the stories I wanted to tell") it was actually this:

    Frustration of constantly discussing with executives + her workload + her distance + health problems

    If it was only the first three she would've probably continued.

    After all, the problems she mentions in that story quote were present in SEASONS 1 AND 2. If she couldn't/didn't want to handle it, she would have left before then.

    SO. TL;DR: Sauce to correct me or you are full of it.

    2. The fandom makes it impossible to forget about her. I've never been in the Faust worship boat and have always felt she got more credit than was do. She a decent illustrator, but a terrible writer, is pretentious and seems to have an axe to grind with shows featuring male leads. Her work with PPG was negligible and minor with Fosters Home, which was her husband's show.

      I'll give her credit for establishing some of the bases of FiM, such as the character designs, though every other aspect of the show's look was designed by other artists. Lauren leaving the show was very much a double edged sword, during season 1 she kept a tight rein on what the writers and artists could do, but by season two had lost her status as creative director, allowing the creative teams to be more flexible with their own ideas. While this would mean Lauren's "vision" for the show would fade away, I'm not entirely sure that's a bad thing.

    7. Her saying in the documentary that it was her decision is probably the truth, but that doesn't mean it isn't also true that Hasbro forced her out. Lauren would never say "Hasbro be bitches, adios." She is way too classy for that. Lauren said in the documentary exactly these words: "I regret that I had to leave but I don't regret the decision to leave." (https://youtu.be/X2RjWOF3Vqk?t=1h8m20s) This tells me that it was an impasse. A struggle. A disagreement. Friendship is Magic was Lauren's machine, but it was Hasbro's to operate. Lauren couldn't continue with her direction, and so she reluctantly separated from the corporation. (And keep in mind, this doesn't necessarily make Hasbro the bad guys, but they were not on the same road as Faust.) There could be lots of other information we may never know about as to what went down between her and Hasbro, but the bottom line is this: It wasn't kosher.

  11. The convention chose a charity that wasn't YOUR preferred charity, Newsie, therefore they are wrong.

    People are freely contributing to a project that they want to see completed, but because YOU don't like it, it's wrong. I don't care for vidya games, and I think this project is dumb, but what people do with their money and time is not up to me. You, on the other hand, believe that what you think about this project is the only thing that matters about it.

    Lauren Faust is assisting in this project, but because YOU don't think she should not do it, it's wrong. I'm sure she's taken note of your objection.

    We'd lynch you if we knew what you really think? Aren't you a precious martyr! Lynch yourself, you fucking hero.

    Your unbelievably inflated sense of importance is everything that is wrong with the fandom. The fact that you even wrote such a detailed article stating such objections that very few people will ever care about shows that you seriously need get outside and let go of ponies for a time.

  14. Mane 6 certainly has set a rather lofty goal for their crowdfunding goal. While they certainly got out of the gate and off to a great start, if they end up with the 436,000 USD they want does remain to be seen. A lot of projects do great initially in the first few days, and another huge surge right before they end. 30% funded does mean 70% to go.

    One does have to wonder about their expenses. While I know practically nothing about video game design, but I do know that Lab Zero Games donated the Skullgirls game engine to them, and likewise Lauren Faust created and donated the games character designs, pro bono as well.

    That they are asking for the same amount or considerably more then a lot of experienced and professional game creators that need to acquire their game engines rights (or write their own) and various licenses (Space Quest's creative team was only looking for 500K to make their 'Space Venture' game. Likewise, the impressive Silent Hill homage/reboot 'Allison Road' with a development team of ten, is looking to raise about 100K less then Mane 6 is) makes their funding goal seem quite excessive in comparison.

    If they can get full funding I say 'good on you'; for making their dream project a reality. I also certainly do hope the end result is a quite spectacular game, worth the 436K and eighteen month production time.

    I just really do have my doubts that they will get their full funding; but then one never knows.

    4. No one hates Purple Tinker because he's trans; it's just a convenient smokescreen for him to avoid any responsibility for his actions. People hate and misgender him because he's an old, fat, attention-whoring abuser in the fandom, and people are forced into putting up with him because the alternative is to become a victim of his hate campaign. He shills off of any possible "charity cause" in the fandom he can find; remember when he tried to make something for the Alcorn girl, and tried to get people to call her "Alicorn" when she wasn't even a Brony?

      What's truly frightening is, this dude sees nothing wrong with what he does. He tries to post peoples' photos, harass them publicly, tries to rile up 4chan into harassing people he thinks deserve it (like that Hasbro exec), then turns around and says that Gamergate is "evil and abusive" for doing the exact same shit he does. He's literally insane, because he lacks any sort of self-reflection. Any criticism lobbed at him is "transphobic trolling" no matter how legitimate their claims.

      Someone needs to take him out back and show him what -real- trans bashing is like.

    5. It's because PT is a sociopath. Not saying this out of any kind of hate, they seriously show all the signs of Antisocial Personality Disorder. They are messed up in the head and even admit to it, but from what I hear form those that know PT personally, she neglects to take her meds.

    7. @22:12, I was going to say BPD; he lacks the ability to see anything in shades of grey, everyone is either his best friend or his hated rival. Criticism is seen as an attack, and there's no empathy for anyone but himself. He's desperately lonely but he everyone who gets close to him is pushed away with his acerbic "I'm just being brutally honest" personality, if you can call it that. He claims to be brutally honest, but when other people are honest with him, he flips a shit.

      Sociopathy sounds equally likely. He doesn't have empathy for anyone but himself.

      As it stands, it just looks like a desperate attempt to get her attention, sort of like the 4th grade boy throwing rocks at the girl he likes. Which is appropriate, because in 4th grade Tinker was a boy, and he hasn't matured since then

  19. Thank you ever so much, Caitlin, for playing right into my hands. I've now established beyond all reasonable doubt that the anon who keeps calling me 'Purple Tranny' is you. The same person, in fact, who sicced Focus on the Family on me, but claims to be a pro-LGBT SJW. The same person who wrote "Someone needs to take him out back and show him what -real- trans bashing is like.". Which, by the way, is illegal. Incitement to violence? Fighting Words? Incitement to commit hate crimes? You and I both live in California; you know that trans people are a protected class. Either way, take your pick. You're in BIG shit now, Miss Beam. BIG shit. You should know better, you know; your dad's a lawyer.

    Oh, didn't think I know? I know. I also know you're his secretary, because you can't hack it in the job market. Unlike, you know, me. I know who you are, where you live, what your father's name is, what he does for a living, and-- most importantly-- WHERE TO SEND A SUBPOENA. And now I have evidence that you threatened to "trans-bash" me IRL. i.e., you know, commit actual acts of violence. Which (I'm sure you keep forgetting) are illegal.

    And I also know that now I have enough evidence to subpoena logs of all your postings, anonymous or not, should I desire to take your lunatic violent ass to court. I can demonstrate a pattern of harassment, incitement to suicide, incitement to violence (if not outright death threats-- so many ways "Someone needs to take him out back and show him what -real- trans bashing is like." could be read by a skilled lawyer!), and so much more.

    Put plainly, U FUKED.

    So "Whoo" are you, Caitlin? Are you the righteous SJ warrior? Or are you the 4chan troll who calls people "faggot" and "tranny" to get their goat?

    Obviously, you're neither. You're just a pathetic fat rich kid with no goddamned life.

    Anyways, thanks again for letting me play you like a big ugly fiddle. I have a wonderful pile of screenshots and logs. People are being made aware of what a violent, unhinged, lying hypocrite you are. Expect to lose some old friends, some new friends, and maybe-- just maybe-- even see the inside of a courtroom. Either way, you richly deserve it.

    Ta ta. Gotta get some sleep before my job. You know, that thing you don't have, because you work for daddy.

    Oh, one last thing. This will be 'Exhibit A' should I ever decide to haul your ass into court. If your ass can even FIT in a courthouse, that is. You dangerous, violent lunatic. http://i.imgur.com/xGgntp1.png

      I guess you have no problem getting banned from conventions, since based on the chatter I've heard, you're riding on most con heads' last nerves. Bronycon and Ponycon NYC already dumped you due to the crazy. The last thing they need is yet another angry email from you about your latest drama-bomb - it'll be funny to see who bans you first.

    7. Posting someone's name/address, while being stupid enough to admit to it with your own screenname, is considered much more of a threat than someone saying you should learn what real harassment is. In fact, as I recall, you've said much worse about other people - a fact that would likely come up in court. What was it you said about that poor Hasbro employee, right before you posted her name and contact information, again?

      But you seem to be dodging my question; what do you imagine con organizers are going to do with an email from a known-shit-stirrer and big drama-hound when she has yet another nobody to trot before them as a "problem", Jessica? Who do you think looks like the problem-starter in that situation? The nobody, or the woman known for making problems wherever she goes?

    10. Kind of an uncomfortable truth, I know it's hard to face. I mean, after being kicked out of the con you started, understandably every following convention kicking you out just feels like salt being poured into the old wound. Kind of sad that the only legacy you choose leave behind is one of "known shit-stirrer" instead of "benevolent former con-founder."

Just because it's being used in a comment and it's the first thing you find on google.... at least on that URL? Sorry for the quesstion torrent, I just really am trying to learn more.

      Delete
    19. kick-neckbeard-ass.tumblr.com is Whoo's primary blog.

      You may remember Whoo from previous coverage here on Horse-News, such as:

      http://www.horse-news.net/2014/06/down-devil-hole-i-kick-neckbeards-ass.html
      http://www.horse-news.net/2014/06/kick-neckbeard-ass-sends-tldr-message.html


      Also, if you'll look at the term referenced, it's a very specific reference to "strawberry lotion" not being an appropriate personal lubricant. Not exactly tenous in that context. Pretty specific (and gross).

      It's old drama from an ex of decades ago. Whoo referenced it to impersonate said ex and attempt to embarrass me (not knowing that I do not embarrass that easily), but said ex was ASLEEP while Whoo was impersonating her. I know, because I checked with her wife and one of her good friends. (Said ex and I are also on good terms at the mo, but Whoo didn't know that. But "asleep" is more important.)

      I'd always SUSPECTED that Whoo was behind all of the "Purple Tranny" comments here, but I never was able to prove it until tonight.

      Thanks, Whoo. I feel a lot better now.

She provided a creative direction for the show, but it was her choice to take her ball and leave. Let me rephrase that for you autistic faggots out there: she abandoned the show, and us along with it.

    I have no interest in supporting Mane6's new game because I am not a Faust worshipping moron. It was good of her to do a lot of what she's done, and I don't believe she's a bad person. But Newsie's right, for once. How in the fuck could she not notice the thousands of autistic faggots out there who worship the ground she walks on?

  32. Don't worry, I'm done spamming this thread. Probably every thread. See, I had suspicions that Caitlin/Whoo was the one posting a lot of the "blah blah blah Purple Tranny" shit. When she went so far as make what might be interpreted as a death threat ("Someone needs to take him out back and show him what -real- trans bashing is like."), she'd gone too far. I knew I needed to catch her in the act.

    All that spamming and trolling was me attempting to goad her into slipping up so I could prove she was, in fact, the anonymous "Purple Tranny" basher. Which I did.

    Now I'm using this information to get her fired from the major brony convention she's staff on. Because, despite writing shit like http://i.imgur.com/xGgntp1.png about bronies (the image is a collage of Whoo quotes from her lovely Kick-Neckbeard-Ass blog), she's managed to slime her way onto the staffs of two major brony conventions. She's already banned from one; I'm working on getting her removed from the second.

    So there's your explanation. I'm sorry for wasting everyone's time with my spamming and trolling. This was just a two-person grudge match that spiraled out of control.

    3. The web logs tell a different story. All those image links I was posting last night went to a honeypot image hosting site on a server I maintained. The logs showed that the majority of the time, it was literally JUST HER opening said links. She'd go to one proxy, I'd ban it, she'd move to a different proxy. Finally, my trolling got her so flustered she dropped the proxy crap, and-- wouldn't you know it-- she showed up from a cable modem IP that geolocated within spitting distance of her house. All the while, she was dropping additional hints that it was her-- choices of phrase ("gross", her favourite insult for bronies, used hundreds of times on her blog; "abusive asshole", a term she's called me several times before, use of the word "misgendered", and at least one time when she got so frustrated she slipped out of her 'anon troll' persona and actually called me 'she').

      And how did I know it was her? She conveniently posted things in this very thread about the pictures I'd posted. But the icing on the cake was when she attempted to impersonate my ex by referencing something that she'd posted (from said ex) on her blog-- while my ex was asleep. That was my proof that the one proxy-mad mofo was, in fact, her: http://i.imgur.com/bNxYrU3.png

      I have no idea what assholes are posting on this thread TODAY, but last night, it was basically just her. The web logs tell the tale.

      Delete
    4. so if your proof is that someone used a word as common as "gross" to describe you ... uh ...

      Delete
    5. No, my proof is that all the accesses were from one person, who kept switching from proxy to proxy, and finally-- when the proxies dropped-- was coming in from an IP geolocated right by her house. And-- most revealingly-- that she attempted to impersonate my ex (who was asleep at the moment) using a very peculiar and specific reference (strawberry lotion used as lube) pulled directly from her own Web page.

      The "gross" usage is merely a bonus. It IS her favourite adjective used to describe bronies, with a whopping 673 Google hits for the word on her Tumblr ( http://i.imgur.com/dq5Qc1C.png ) Another bonus is the fact that she used the specific phrase "abusive asshole" to describe me, a phrase she's used to describe me twice before. And a third bonus is the reference to "misgendering", which isn't a term many people outside trans people (like me) and Tumblr SJWs (like her) use.

      But at the end, those are just bonuses.

      Caitlin, if that's you, I advise you to shut up while you're ahead.

  38. Any perceived madness is incidental and not linked to the transgender identity.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Most I know are sane and Tinker is perceived as a bully even among that community. Because, you see, most transgender individuals identify as an actual gender, male or female, it's just their biloical gender and don't want attention brought to this. Tinker, however, specially identifies specifically as transgender, leaving no doubt they wish to be identified as something other than their biological gender, much to the annoyance to other trans-individuals, and treats those that do wish to be discreet as traitors. They have literally called other transgenders transphobic and tried to do one of their famous hate campaigns, which obviously failed and only served to highlight the crazy side we've all been entertained by on several occasions.

      Honestly, Tinker is mostly just mentally unstable, rather than a bad person. Though the woe is me rutien on Twitter gets rather old.

      Delete
    2. I cannot recall the last time I called a trans person transphobic (though that IS possible— see also, "self-hating Jews").

      What I DID do (while very hurt angry, and thus in a bad state of mind) is rant at other trans people for not helping me stand up against transphobia. I did not call them transphobes myself. Nor would I.

      It's a common caricature of me that "Tinker thinks everyone who hates her is transphobic." That has never been true. It's just that— a caricature. If I think someone is transphobic, I'll say so. Even most of the transphobic *things* done against me haven't been done by *people* who are transphobic— they're just doing these things to get my goat.

      It's still wrong, of course.

      I've been upset at other trans women for not having my back mostly during these instances:

      1) When BravoTV mocked my appearance on national television and questioned my gender: http://www.equestriaforums.com/index.php?topic=16911.0

      2) When Canterlot Gardens staffers started cruel memes about how a store clerk had mistaken me for a man because of facial stubble, and spread them around 4chan, while making posts designed to make people mock me for being trans.

      3) When other major conventions refused to distance themselves from Canterlot Gardens for these actions, and even advertised it.

      4) When BronyCon staffers repeatedly, publicly called me "Sir" even after I kept asking them not to, and they refused to issue a public (or even much of a private) apology.

      5) When a major fandom musician called me a transphobic name. When a major staffer of the Traveling Pony Museum referred to me and my friends as the "he-she brigade" (or something along those lines). And so on, and so on, and so on.

      Through all of these times, I wished for the help of other "out" trans people in the community, but did not receive it. I wanted other people to stand up and say "I am also trans, and this is wrong."

      But it did not happen. I was, for years, the only well-known *out* trans person in the fandom. Now there are a few others, but still, when people think "transgender" + "brony", they usually think of me. And that means that I have to fight alone.

      The reason why I've made so much noise about being transgender is NOT because I "identify as transgender". It's because I'm having to make up for the relative lack of well-known "out" trans people in the community. I WISH that they would come out-- many of them would be far better role models than me.

      But, as long as "out" trans activists in the brony community are in short supply, I will continue to speak out on trans issues. It isn't because I "identify as trans", because I don't. I identify as a woman. It's because there are young LGBT people who have come to me and thanked me for showing them that they are not alone, that other trans people exist— for guiding them to support resources in their communities. People have told me that I have saved their lives by being out— and by being loud enough for terrified young LGBT people to know that I'm out there, that they can talk to me instead of taking refuge in self-harm or suicide.

      If that means that some people on the Internet call me shrill or crazy or an asshole, or misconstrue my words, so be it.

      But, no. I don't think that everyone who disagrees with me is transphobic, nor do I "identify as transgender", nor do I think that many trans people are transphobic. On the contrary; most of us are simply struggling to survive.

      You need not speak for me, Anon. I'm right here, and everyone knows how to reach me. I'll more than happily speak for myself.

    3. A fandom is not the place for this bullshit, thus why you piss everyone off. That is a fight meant for the larger world. People just want to come into this fandom and enjoy ponies, fan created work and the company of others that enjoy these things. Anything, ANYTHING, that is some purposeful social political agenda, ruins people's fun and sucks them back to the real world, when things like this fandom should be an escape from all that nonsense. Even if for a good cause, which believe me I do believe that activism in the name of the LGBTQ community is a good cause, considering I am part of said community.

      At some point you are going to have to realize all this and that often what you do while attempting to bring to light LGBTQ issues, is in such a manner it makes it more difficult for other trans. The more you appoint yourself as the voice of entire group of people, simply because you are one of the few and a loud one at that, the more people see you as a reflection of what all trans are like, which they are not, you are simply one individual.

      You do not do yourself any good constantly thrusting yourself into the spotlight the way you do and you certainly do no good for the community you are trying to represent, while all at the same time creating drama in a fandom that probably would not exist if you didn't always stir the pot and antagonize people. Because you go looking for problems and issues to address, you are creating your own self-fulfilled prophecy and often times creating your own misery because you cannot let things go. This is not good for your mental and in turn physical health, which I know you know and I am pretty damn sure those close to you know the additional stress is doing noticeable damage.

    4. Of course, and I'm doing my best to start less drama. It's probably worth noting that this entire goddamned out-of-control shitposting fest was started by one of my haters— not me. And I'm sorry for my part in keeping the shitposting going. I just needed to prod her into a corner so I could gather evidence it was her. Now that I have my evidence, I have no more reason to engage with that lunatic. Suffice it to say that MULTIPLE con orgs are already aware of her little "Purple Tranny" rant, and she will find it difficult to find a place on their staffs in future.

      That being said, when people in the fandom do transphobic shit to me (like in the examples I listed a couple posts above) I'm going to call them on it. Learning to not just outright EXPLODE is tough.

      Incidentally, it's "trans people". "Trans" is an adjective. (Short for "transgender" or "transsexual"). Saying "it makes it more difficult for other trans" is like saying "it makes it more difficult for other black". Forgive the minor lesson.

      Now, please. Let's stop posting this offtopic shit. Don't speak for me; I won't speak for you. Basic human respect. That's all I want. If you want to discuss this further, my Twitter is always open.

    5. You say that you want people to talk to you to understand your positions, but your response here explains why they won't. No one wants to bother talking to you because you never accept blame for anything you ever say or do, and you don't consider anyone else's feelings but your own. A conversation requires back and forth and concessions, but you only seem to want to lecture people. (See: the unwanted and condescending paragraph that ends with "forgive the minor lesson".)

      You think it's someone else's fault that you went off on a 100 comment rant, and no one should think lesser of you because the anonymous commenter made you do it. No one controls your actions but yourself. You chose to respond to someone saying shit on Horse News; no one forced you to respond or let it spiral out as far as it did. If you didn't respond to that troll, there would be probably 10 posts on this article, and no one would have even seen that comment about you. Sethisto and other people in the fandom have been saying this since day one: don't feed the trolls. People wouldn't call you a man or a tranny as much if you didn't fly into a public rage every single time someone did it. Most of your comments are responses to trolls, and if you didn't give them any of your attention, they would get bored and wander away. Your responses have created an entire community of trolls dedicated to pissing you off with transphobia.

    6. The majority of the fandom honestly doesn't care and other than a few pockets of Christian Fundamentalis in the fandom, most are fairly accepting and understanding of transgender individuals. Hell, the majority of the fandom does not even know, or care, who Purple Tinker is. Most of the online and convention drama is isolated to those dedicated to the more inner workings of the fandom and the so called horse famous.

  39. I can understand her feeling. The show has moved away from many of the things that she worked hard on, and the fandom has been eating it up. Another thing is that the fandom has died down so she is likely getting less fan attention than she used to.

  41. when do you think purple tranny will figure out that no one remembers him for running bronycon for 1 year but everyone remembers him being an assdamaged lolcow for the last 5

    1. But they are (one of) the founder!

      Though, not really, as the group that once called themselves BroNYcon is not the same people that run the organization now known as Bronycon, which are those behind Lunar Solis Corp. PT has absolutely nothing to do with any of this and never has. A whole different group of people, at a new location and actually organized under a company. She isn't even all that welcome there, do to the bad behavior, outbursts and failing to follow the rules.

    2. and not to mention that he got banned from the group that did run BroNYcon, the BroniesNYC, so ... really, no one who knows him wants him. And the average Brony knows him as an overdramatic whiner.

    3. Yeah, pretty much the real reason they fled New York to live out west, already burned too many bridges and found a ripe new flock of tumblrina idiots to exploit. Though I love how she keeps bashing sjw 's to appear cool, when half the shit she spouts is the same kind of nonsense.

    4. tinker is like a 4chan anon but wants to have morals, so instead of embracing the hate everyone equally mentality she just picks and chooses which groups she wants to be permitted to hate. she wants to be allowed to hate black people and dumb people but the minute someone calls her a tranny it's a hate crime

      tumblr hates her and 4chan hates her and she can't figure out why. kind of ironic that she hates dumb people when she is one

    5. When you are your own worst enemy, there's no way to "move away" from your problems; Tinker will find that out the hard way eventually when she ends up in California, along and friendless once more.
