Cuz it's Sadie Hawkins Night or Pony up!

  I am trying to work on a few pieces at the same time. One of them being A dating guide for bisexual men on dating other men. It's a touchy subject for me & with the poop Shit storm of the quarter happening with my friends which I am dragged into by sheer guilt & devotion. Painful distraction after painful distraction for about a month actually. (God a whole month...I need to get my shit together )

 I am a big old geek, not a nerd...but a geek  and if you just don't wanna click that link. PICTURE!!

Where was I going with this? Oh yeah! SO I am a big ol geek and I love me some internetz. I once in awhile go to different message boards and try to dive into the geek world or the muggle world. Who is doing this amd what blog is doing what. And I discovered something totally awesome..Are you ready for it?


Why are these ponies so awesome?  What's the big deal? ell It all starts with a lil Imageboard called 4CHAN
Never heard of it? Do you remember last summer about a little girl named Jessi Slaughter? Go read up on her and 4CHAN. I'll wait
Crazy stuff right? SO one of the things that is known on the internet is you do not FUCK with B/   Not ever..just period. Now somehow (answer right here ) My Little Pony or MLP took 4Chan in a storm. for about a month straight. Mind you. they get banned every 5 minutes but keep coming back. The argueent is that There is nothing but sex, porn, and other things bad on there why not some cute little ponies? But again and again these B/astards kept fighitng. and the MLP lovers on 4CHAN now calling themselves

B/rony or B/ronies do not give up. But they never gave up.
These B/ronies kept going and going 2 hours a day from all around. Everypony chipped in got banned and guess what?

 Never has 4CHAN been attacked before from within and especially B/ of all places! 
 What were the rules for the B/ronies?

Current rules for MLP threads:
-Keep all MLP related content within the current largest MLP thread
-Actually discuss the show
-Ignore any threads speaking negatively about the show
-Post any MLP material in any thread not explicitly about MLP (reaction images, avatars, macros, quotes, phrases such as everypony/brony/etc)
-Post threads to speak negatively about MLP or reply to threads speaking negatively about MLP
-Post any MLP material on other boards
-Bump MLP threads just to keep them bumped
-Report MLP threads where users are staying in one thread

Did you see the underlined?  Do NOT Post threads to speak negatively about MLP or reply to threads speaking negatively about MLP 
Do you get that? Ignore the haters. IGNORE THE HATERS IGNORE THE FUCKING HATERS!! Why should we ignore all of these Savages? 

Yes...they always do But something remarkable happened.
People stopped judging the show & watched it.  The word spread. Guess what happened?

Fans emerged.  The toughest women & the hardest of hardcore liked the show

Yes...and of course the hate became stronger ...

and more violent

But what did they do? 
Because they redid their rules. They stopped playing by the old rules & made new rules

I mean look at number 1. Ok we all see number 10 it's an inside pony joke.

Thou Shall Live by the Code of Friendship Love & Tolerance.

Imagine if we all did that? What if we just fought back with hugs?
I mean we did it before? right?

Remember these anybody?

"In October 1967, Hoffman and Jerry Rubin helped organize the March on the Pentagon using Flower Power concepts to create a theatrical spectacle.[14] The idea included a call for marchers to attempt to levitate the Pentagon. When the marchers faced off against more than 2500 Army national guard troops forming a human barricade in front of the Pentagon, demonstrators placed flowers in the soldier's rifle barrels.[15]
Flower Power, a Pulitzer-nominated photograph by Washington Star photographer Bernie Boston, became a classic image of the Vietnam War–era protests.[16] The photo, taken on October 21, 1967 at the "March on the Pentagon", showed a young, long-haired man in a turtleneck sweater, placing carnations into the rifle barrels of military policemen. (The young man in the photo was not named by Boston and his identity is disputed. He was most commonly identified as George Edgerly Harris III, an 18-year-old actor from New York who later performed in San Francisco under the stage name ofHibiscus.[17] The young man also has been identified by Paul Krassner as Youth International Party organizer, "Super-Joel" Tornabene.[18]) "  (*psst* they are talking about the blonde dude)

They didn't wait for a bad article or a writer to make fun of them. They went to the Pentagon protested the fuck out of it and when they came out with rifles the put FLOWERS in them. How possible could that be if we did that?
What if we stopped hating each other for things and stopped blaming each other for things and trying to get each other to donate to a cause and just said
"How can I help you?"
I know, I hear a lot of  "but what about me?" "what about my problem?" Let's just stop for a moment.

The only way to help oursleves is to help each other. 
Example: I love Wonder Woman I love her comics. I still buy them  and when I am done I give them to shelters. I buy the trades or Trade paperbacks & keep those. Now here is a funny thing. THEY NEVER HAVE WONDER WOMAN SHIRTS FOR MEN. EVER!  Is it because they suspect that men don't like it? I dunno. I mean they have batman & superman shirts for girls as well as adult women. Is it ok for for girls to look up to men but boys not up to women? Would fighting for shirts in men sizes be a step towards boys being able to access stuff  to show their pride of having a female role model? Sure it sounds far fetched but is it? 
Think about this.
Tomboy=aww  she wants to be tough like boys. maybe she will grow up to be a lesbians bawhahahaha!
Feminine boy= I smell gay on him. we'll beat the gay out of him.
Yeah someone did already.
See here is one thing that quells any any argument of manliness. When a woman says that's hot.
Bottom line. It happens tie & time again. Those male allies that aren't believed are justified by you. 
You become the proof positive in those ogres minds by saying that person A is mating material in it's most primitive sense. You've seen it. 
The hottest girl in school says she likes smart guys: EVERY BOY GOES TO STUDY HALL.
In a collective god..
Imagine a million men saying "Hey! How come sport X isnt co-ed?" 
I would love to see co-ed sports. and I don't mean just billiards, golf, or bowling but vs. sports like baseball, hockey, and tennis? I know Venus can serve t up and slam down most if not all of the men on the pro circuit.
 It's crazy she isn't allowed to prove it. 
They say Danica Patrick is an anomaly. I think that's BS and in the coming years we will see more & more women in sports.
But we got to support them as well even if we don't like the sport or hobby.
Because we missed some awesome bisexual moments.

Yes...those are kids asking women out. There are girls there wanting to go out with wonder woman just as badly as the boys and yes this is a scan from an actual DC Comic.

Folks we are dropping the ball.....BADLY!
We are worried about some TV show
(GLee) when we have THE icon of female superheroes in one of the most key moment and possible ventures of her having a female partner by encouraging the writers...we blew it.
You know as well as I do that money talks. Yet year after year the editor in chief has to convince the shareholders that Wonder Woman even though her comics aren't selling for shit to keep making them because he recognizes the importance of visibility. Fellas, why aren't YOU asking to see more female representation in the things you like? 
You're a basketball fan? Support the WNBA. Buy tickets and a jersey. Why should you do it? Because maybe one day you can say "Hey! That's my daughter that dunked on Shaq Jr!" How awesome does that sound?
My son is an interior decorator. 
My daughter is a mechanic
My father is a teacher at a daycare
My mom runs the IT Dept at UBS

It starts with simple things. Like allowing your son to respect women by making sure he can look up to one. To play with "girl toys"  or "Boy toys"


G.I. recruitment center OR A pony so utterly bisexual she is a unicorn! 
SO again we have 2 choices know I choose the ponies.

Thanks for being patient and as a reward...
PONIES! (yes this episode why Bronies say "Fuck Griffons" 
SPecial thanks to @Lysana on Twitter for stating "You do realize the bi pony is a unicorn? As in a HBB*? SOMEONE knows". *Hot Bi Babe

*applause* I am mildly amused by the /b/ronies peaceful noncompliance and dedication.

But, through my giggles, I feel you have made a very important point. I'm not a gleek, so I missed that round of brouhaha, but I've seen plenty of other flaps. What if we always had a MLP thread to offset the flamewars? What if we just ignored the haters.

And can I get WW's phone number?

Ask A Bisexual Guy said...

I know! What if the next time we saw Westboro Baptist Church we invited them to join us for punch and pie and if they said no we would just send over milk & cookies? Imagine that. BAM! We stopped the cycle of hate?

BTW We ALL want WW phone number.
But I have to be honest with you, I don't think I could give it up.I couldn't put it don.
I could never put it down and forget it.

Glad I got that geek/nerd clarification...sometimes you forget. Anyway, the internet I s definitely amazing and dangeous. You can find like-minded people and read their similar life stories, express both positive and negative feelings/behaviours 'anonymously', find both biased and scientific material and knowledge.

I like info that I consume to be organized, so forums can be a nightmare for me (even when I did have a laptop not just a smartphone).

As far as the 'beat the gay/femme out of man', you were dead on unfortunately. I wish more women supported the fluidity of mens' genders and gender expression.

So many of my friends raise a brow when I admit to liking guys with long hair, boyish looking men, or the beiber look. I mean I love the men in the 'Iron Mask' and that red head olympic snowboarder. But that's wrong and yet women can be tomboyish without most raising an eye? So frustrating and oppressive (*choir speaking).

Tomboys should be able to like pink.
Girly girls should be able to like other colors than pink.
Boys should be able to like cooking and cleaning
...without the judgment.

But alas not everyone has been indoctrinated just yet.

@Ashia: So very very awesomely true.

Ask A Bisexual Guy said...

@a.i.bridges:Glad ou see where i am coming from. Oh and his name is Shaun White I believe. The snowboarder I mean.

Ever watch those movies where the guy breaks into the area to stop the bad guy but realizes that the only we he can win if he frees the prisoners that were already caught?

I had no clue Wonder Woman was that bi-friendly! I need to get my ass to a comics shop! Thank you for the lead. We do need to see and hear much more about the good stuff, and to encourage it with our money and publicity.

I don't know ponies or comics, but I do know sports. My father would rather have bathed in bleach than be called a feminist, but he saw nothing at all wrong with my dream of wanting to be the first woman to win the Daytona 500. My grandfather encouraged me, too. What held me back was my mother's overprotectiveness after Daddy died. (Also, I'm a bit claustrophobic--not convenient in a racecar!)

My friend, a bisexual man, is encouraging his talented 10-year-old daughter in hockey. She dreams of being the first woman to win the Stanley Cup. She plays on co-ed teams. It's the cutest thing when she runs outside to try and copy what her NHL heroes did on TV--"Da, you defend me. Jayelle, be my wing." The epidemic of head injuries in the NHL recently has him hoping there will be paying alternatives for her, or that a hockey college scholarship funds her as she pursues her other dream of becoming a translator, but he loves that hockey's a huge part of her life.

I wish you'd seen the list of women NASCAR drivers and hockey players I linked to for Follow Friday. Danica *is* an anomaly, in that she's getting paid. We may be seeing Tony Stewart's girlfriend Jessica Zemken, who is a young dirt tracker he mentored, get some opportunities soon. Jennifer Jo Cobb (@JenJoCobb, my hero in the Trucks and Nationwide series, which are, like, NASCAR's minor league) struggles for funding, as does Johanna Long, a teenager who's trying for the Truck Series' Rookie of the Year.

The Canadian Womens' Hockey League is non-profit. I enjoyed watching most of these women in the Winter Olympics; my team is the Boston Blades. Most of these women have day jobs, spouses supporting them (I believe a few CWHL players are openly bi or gay, too), or are going to college. This is, like, a modern-day A League of Our Own. They're in the playoffs for the Clarkson Cup now.

Just to share a little more of the good on Sadie Hawkins Night. :-)

Lilo...first things first. The women's hockey at the last winter Olympic was awesome! The cigars and the champagne.

I would love to see the list of female NASCAR drivers. Send it to me. I want to wear their shirts!
I am gonna do some support for Jen Jo when I can. Thanks for the heads up!

yes...YEEES! Educate me! I love this! this is what it's all about.

CrackerLilo said...

You'll love this--Jennifer Jo Cobb has shirts for guys at Driven Male as well as merchandise for women. See here. Sadly, most of those shirts don't have her name on it, but they do help support her team. Danica Patrick races for NASCAR part-time; Johanna Long does full-time. I'm not seeing other women race more than a handful of races, but my gender's getting a toehold in racing!

I have a huge crush on Leilani Munter, who works to balance environmental activism with ARCA-series racing. There are other women in ARCA, Indy, and the NHRA hot rod series, but I'm not familiar with those styles of racing.

The Canadian women's team was so badass! I cheered on Team USA out of patriotism, of course. The entire Finnish women's team...well, they won the bronze medal, but they had gold-medal looks. My friend and I decided that if we ever do a bisexual sports blog or podcast, we'll name it after my assessment of one of the Finnish players: "Her ass is better than [Sidney] Crosby's."

Who says bisexual visibility can't be fun?

You do have to remember two reasons why Wonder Woman is published:

1) Men are her primary audience. Women don't buy the book in any noticeable number (I assure you), which probably lends credence to your whole "Wonder Woman Tees for Men" campaign and...

2) If they don't continue to publish the book I believe the rights revert to the estate of the guy who created her.

Bridget_Herself said...

Delurking to say THIS IS FREAKIN' AWESOME! From here on out, I choose ponies. And will have to start reading Wonder Woman. Where did you find the black and pink gender piece in the middle (my eyes aren't good enough to read the fine print *sigh*).

Thank you. This one means...a lot.
