Internet is public space.
Internet is not your nanny.
The world has no obligation to make itself a nursery to your specifications.
Watch your damn child!
Internet is not for children! If you allow your child…
What bothers me most is that shes crying about how the ‘evil male bronies’ are making porn… Like women are incapable of drawing porn lol. I know that there are a TON of female artists who do this too.
You should not teach your FIVE YEAR OLD to use google for anything. They should have set up a safe/password restricted zone for their kid or used constant supervision because the whole internet is not PG.The mom comes off as whiny that her precious babbu saw some things because of HER MISTAKES.
It dosn’t matter that its a ‘kids show’ people have been doing rule 34 for cartoons since it was possible. Most cartoons are considered ‘kids shows’.
Hold up a sec…what bothers you most about the situation in which a toddler had a traumatic reaction to something quite disturbing is the fact that people are rightfully vilifying bronies for publishing (often violent) pornography out of characters written for the purposes of children’s entertainment? Wow. Someone needs to get their priorities straightened out.
I highly doubt the number of female bronies (yeah I’ve seen enough go by “brony”) who make and publish such images gets close to meeting the number of male bronies who do it. And the females who have done it have been influenced by the males who have, and it all begins with a huge patriarchal problem of oversexualizing young girls and the things made for them. This is the way those particular females are reacting to that cultural problem, and it’s not okay of them either. But this MLP pornography issue stems from and is mostly a sexist male problem, and anyone who tries to shout “but females do (insert majority sexist male problem here) too” during a time like this is usually good to avoid.
Many cartoons are considered “kid’s shows,” but many aren’t. There are plenty of adult cartoons that adults wishing to make porn out of can use. Any show that is aired at child-specific times, on child-specific channels, and with clear child-specific content is a fucking kid’s show. That doesn’t mean it’s not okay for people of all ages to watch and enjoy it, but it does mean that any adults who decide they like it have responsibilities to the younger fan base. Those responsibilities include not publishing easily accessible pornography about the show, and not defending other adults who do that.
Not about the situation but what she was saying and emphasizing. Of course its sad that she let her daughter get traumatized by the internet. That dosn’t even need to be said… JFC jump down my throat much.
You are ass over backwards if you think that women* enjoying looking at or drawing cartoon porn/gore are ‘influenced’ by men*. The show itself is not gendered, or even dumbed down enough to be enjoyed soley by children (whatever the intended demographic originally).
If you have some experience from within the art community that produces a lot of this adult material please enlighten me because you’re making a lot of sweeping generalizations. I work making a lot of clean art in these places and I can tell you, female* artists are happy to make this kind of art of their own choice and vocation. Even most of the MLP porn/shipping is lesbian. I don’t think they should be vilified for liking what they do.
My point being: sexualizing/brutalizing things that aren’t originally sexual is not a male* only interest nor born of sexism. Maybe people who make this artwork could tag it better or google safe search could be a little better. I still stand on kids that young not having free computer access.
Also not all bronies being interested in the porn aspect is a thing. That would mostly be the bronies who are also furrys.
