Yeah, because the whole issue Failheap has with bronies is exactly like racism in the American south.
I think bronies need to be kept in their place.
Jesus christ the hypocrisy in this thread is simply staggering.
Despite my bestiality comment I hadn't voted yet as I didn't really care about the outcome, but now you nay-sayers have made me angry so I'm giving Darkflare what he wants and voting yes.
Why? Simple. When the MLP craze started the vast majority of FHC didn't want you here (I mean really didn't want you here, not in a joking manner). And tbh I think the majority STILL don't want you here. But since Entrox has a soft spot for ponies he made us accept it, while establishing clear (and very well enforced) guidelines to keep that crap contained to one place.
And it's worked. Even though I still think there has to be something wrong with an adult to obsess over something meant for little girls, the thruth is that there is plenty of stuff wrong with all of us. The MLP thread has attracted many new members to FHC, and is one of the reasons FHC isn't just an EVE-related forum anymore (even though dinosaurs such as cippa don't understand that yet), which is a good thing. Many of those new members are now well-respected members of our FHC community.
Trying to be a snob about your own kink and wanting to deny others who are a subculture of your subculture makes the people who voted no terrible, bigoted, hypocritical hipsters. A NSFW porny thread won't hurt anyone. The crap will be contained to one thread that you don't have to open if you don't want to. "Normal" people already think you're depraved paedophiles, even when you aren't posting NSFW porny stuff, so those opinions will be hardly affected. And if it still makes you ashamed more about the stuff you do anonymously on the internet you should talk to your shrink about that.
Denying others the right to do what they want, even though they aren't hurting anyone by doing it, just because you don't want to be associated with them, is something you should feel really ashamed about. One of the best things about FHC is how accepting we are of weird stuff, and denying one more little weird thing has the potential to ruin all that.
No, you're still wrong. It IS perfectly reasonable to want to go up to a certain mark with your interest and no further, and it IS okay to find something beyond that mark disagreeable. What you want is for our "open" club to have no set purpose or restrictions, for anyone to be able to do whatever they like. You can wall of text all you want, anyone respecting your post because of that is a moron.
Essentially what you're doing is popping your head around the door of a building that you do not want to enter and offering your proclaimed righteous view on a subject you want no part of.
You just want to take a meaningless moral high ground.
This isn't about what you or your "open" club wants whispous.
You owe the existence of both the MLP thread and the pony subforum to other people respecting your wishes. The least you could do is extend that courtesy to others, instead of only thinking about what YOU want. Clearly, others do want it. If they didn't the material wouldn't exist and we wouldn't be having this discussion.
You're still ignoring the fact that the people voting yay are people who protested the existence of one single pony thread in the first place, so who do you think you are to tell me what freedom of expression us? The ACTUAL bronies are overwhelmingly voting NO. Why are you trying to free a group of peopke who have already established their own rules happily?
Screw it, the only way to prove that I am right is to have a BRONIES ONLY poll. Then you'll have nothing to say.
I expected this to happen sooner then it has.
Your posting is medium, its not rare and its not well done

Essentially this poll is like america being allowed to vote directly on british law.
Oh god, this thread is devolving into utter hilarity.
@Sparq: Is this a new phase you're going through, the whole Lallante emulating? Because, buddy, you're not very good at it. The trick is to take a solid foundation and a well constructed argument, then extrapolating from it to the point of provocative and offensive extremes. Your trolling just doesn't stand up to any scrutiny because A) you are white knighting an implied repressed sexual minority that requires the protection from closeted bigots (the amount of fallacies in that is already hilarious) for a group that has very blatantly said they want nothing to do with you, your white knighting nor this issue. And B) your juxtaposition of homophobia (I mean, really?) with non-bronies voting no on an issue about bestiality that has nothing to do with sexual orientation or bigotry as it is illegal. Drawn or not, a lot of people would be against a necrophilia rule 34 thread because they don't want to be associated with that, which is their good right if they visit this forum. Again, the main factor here though is that the bronies themselves (the community group you are portraying as repressed and a victim of the ruling, conservative bigots) have said THEY DON'T WANT THE THREAD.
But you know this, because you're trolling.
@Overspark: I'm disappointed in you buddy. If there were people wanting this kinda thing, you'd be spot on and I'd tentatively agree with you. But your rage at hypocrisy is utterly pointless here because there's not a single brony in this thread or the sticky who has spoken out in favour of NSFW or Rule 34 material. In fact, most bronies were rather adamant about NOT wanting it. The argument that the material exists so people must want it is of course a massive fallacy, because it has nothing to do with the people on this forum wanting it. And quite clearly: They don't. So you're being a bit of a heilig boontje, because you're arguing in favour of a moral high ground when absolutely no one seems to want this.
I mean damn, FHC.. I'm glad you lot aren't politicians, because no one is willing to admit they might have misunderstood something somewhere and we're just deciding to polarize a clear cut issue. In fact, the very notion of this discussion AND the people taking the so called "don't be bigots" route are the ones being the biggest bigots, because they can't rid themselves of the notion that because there are grown men who like a children's show about ponies they ALSO must be so fucked up that they would want to masturbate to bestiality material. They are two separate things, and frankly I think it might be quite insulting to the bronies we have on this forum, who have made it very clear they don't want to be associated with that sub-subculture and would rather enjoy the show together. But you've decided to portray them as deviant sexual freaks as well, even though they want no part of this.
This entire thing is like a politician deciding that Black people should be allowed to wear tribal attire as a freedom of expression thing, then everyone wants to be politically correct and follow along with it while the Black community goes "Eh, what the fuck? We don't want this shit, you racist assholes."
No one even asked for the damn subforum. We were quite content(if a bit crowded) in the megathread and now people who dislike the show want to force a NSFW thread?
Roam said it the best and I wish I could +rep him 10 times.
