Canterlot Rage-io: Mod discovers 3-year-old meme, gets triggered, decried for censorship by


Last week, an admin of the Canterlot Radio Facebook page made a post that has drawn a lot of attention for 2 reasons. First, many believe it is a call for censorship of artwork (something that's...ya know...not usually cool) and second, because it is one of the worst slowpokes in fandom history. The post, which has since been edited, references the "Doing Hurtful Things to your Waifu" meme that has been in circulation in the fandom since at least early February.....of 2013. The meme, which is 3 years old, is potentially even older than Canterlot Radio itself, which according to twitter, was also founded in February of 2013.

The admin expressed shock and disgust at the Fluttershy version of the image, which has over 100 variations. They also expressed surprise when informed that there are others, of this incredibly popular, widely-distributed class of images (the anti-version of the meme has been featured repeatedly on Equestria Daily, and other such sites for years).

It didn't take long for followers to voice their concerns about the perceived call (albeit fruitless) for censorship.



"There are others? 0-0" man...wait till he finds out about FLUFFY Ponies

Their concerns are of-course not ill-founded, as this is basically how "Down With Molestia" got started, and we all remember how THAT turned out. The admin later began to backpedal, claiming that it was only to be applied to the Canterlot Radio page itself, but their followers weren't buying it.


The post has since been edited to read "If you see this photo posted somewhere that clearly states their disapproval of sexual or explicit art on their page, report it."
/mlp/ of course, out of the goodness of their hearts, sought to help educate the admin about the history of the meme further.


For future reference, when you find something "new" on the internet, it is best to right-click  and select "Search Google for this Image" - and make sure that your "new" thing, isn't as old as you are.

  2. Why it's not even a bit a surprise for me? Canterlot Radio is run by an bible thumper Christian and never missed a occasion to show it. When you believe that having sexual thoughts when you look at a woman is a sin, imagine his reaction when he sees the R34 material! So we end up with another George Cain type of asshole who think it's God wish to censor us and tell us what to draw or what image to like.

    1. Well as a suicide survivor, born-again Christian, and the artist, if that's true I'd like to throw the Book at him and explain why he's driving people away from Heaven.

  3. Literally never heard of this site until today, and I've been around in the fandom since 2012. Proof how big and how much say they have over the community.

    I just hope this GG/SJW bullshit doesn't perpetuate the fandom too much. Then again look how much Ted Anderson's name is now shit in the fandom after supporting something similar.

    1. If it's any consolation their panel at BronyCon 2014 had probably around 20 - 30 people in it.

    2. That's still 20-30 more than it should be.

  7. Hey, I'm the guy who sent you that header screencap on Twitter(I also posted it on Derpibooru). Good to see that the Canterlot Radio thing is getting attention. This whole thing about censoring things just because we don't like them is way too common these days. People with any level of influence who tell others to do so on their behalf just like the Canterlot Radio mod need to be put on blast.
    Also Chelis, if you're reading this, see you at BABSCon! ;)

  11. Someone needs to send them the image on Derpibooru of Fluttershy that involves necrophilia and dismemberment. Or the one where a dragon is having his way with her as her neck is impaled on a pike.
    If they think the waifu thing was the worst the fandom has to offer, they must be sheltered indeed.
