“I can’t believe someone actually takes the Trollestia/Molestia thing seriously, as most of the fans mainly do it for the laugh/just for the hell of it. I, personally, think, that Trollestia is just an overexaggerated version of some characteristics of Princess Celestia. She’s just much more light-hearted as one might expect from a princess.Celestia is a pretty undeveloped character, which leaves much room for speculations. Not uncommon that fans might give her some “needs” too. Exaggerated, o/c. (From Anonymous)”
My main problem with it is summarized in this post: http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/69014575.html
Here’s an excerpt (Neil Cicierega is the guy who makes the Potter Puppet Pals videos):
Neil Cicierega: So what is the deal with Princess Molestia? Did the bronies take a show designed for little girls and turn it into another awful internet rape culture thing?
Reddit OP: No, they didn’t, but I admire your ability to make assumptions. Did you know that a community as large as the brony fanbase has multiple subsections? Why, I dare say it’s as though multiple people enjoy the show.
Neil Cicierega: Yeah, I know it’s the stuff of the internet. I just think it’s particularly cruel of them to import that shit into something meant for young girls… 1 in 6 of whom will grow up to be victims of the thing these bros are lulzing it up over. It really illustrates how toughtlessly men will reappropriate anything and everything.
Some guy: But not all bronies are like that.
Neil Cicierega: you gotta call each other out on this kind of thing more often. That goes for all groups. Don’t let your friends be dipshits!
Neil Cicierega: The show’s designed to be a better alternative to the crap little girls are usually fed. So of course, grown men, who already have plenty of media marketed to them, come in and completely overshadow the intended audience, and litter it with the same tired humor and loutishness as every other male-oriented community. Something meant as an antidote to girls’ usual gender normative entertainment has been turned into yet another sausage party.
*Rebloggable version of original ask.
*Rape/molestation jokes are NEVER funny or cool, regardless of if the person is real or fictional.
