Yeah, I haven't actually read that comic, I just saw the image and thought "huh, that's pretty badass."

It looks more like fanart than an actual comic, because of how preposterous it is.

Yeah, and "ANTHRO" is not a real word either, it's a word created by the furry fandom used to describe anthropomorphic animals with human-like personalities and bodies, it's just as fucking fake as "feral" which more or less means "animal with human-like personality" and it was ALSO made by the furry fandom.

Jesus Christ, how hard is it to comprehend that?

Balto is feral. If you're basing him being anthro by the fact he talks its wrong because he isn't speaking to people, just other animals.
Mickey mouse is a good example of anthropomorphic.
Zues is "human". He's a god but yes, but the body of a human.
User avatar #86 - dtox (03/16/2014) [-]
an·thro·po·mor·phism
ˌanTHrəpəˈmôrˌfizəm/Submit
noun
1.
the attribution of human characteristics or behavior to a god, animal, or object.

I know that, from the human's perspective in the animation, balto is just another wolf, but his characterization and mentality is that of a human in the setting he's portrayed in. You say he is "feral" (a made up term, btw) because he's portrayed as being an animal on all fours, when that fact is completely irrelevant.

As for zeus, he is an inhuman entity (a god) given human qualities (speech, appearance, mentality, etc), thus making him anthropomorphic.

you are taking some very LITERAL perspectives and skewing a concept, which is something I am perturbed by. I wish people would stop this.

I got to 120 and camped out in the oolacile township for pvp, which got me a crap ton of action, not sure if it's still the same today though.

I never really experimented with the covenants. I only ever went into the warriors of sunlight covenant, and that was only for my cleric build.

a popular covenant for pvp are the darkwraith covenant, since they can do infinite invasions.

User avatar #306 to #305 - dtox (03/20/2013) [-]
yeah, oolacile is pretty significant, I recommend doing that portion of the game. If you're playing the PC version of dark souls, I believe you got the DLC for free.

never played demon's souls.

#292 to #264 - darkjustifier ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
You've never mentioned anything pony related unless it had to do with what I was talking about, and I never asked because I didn't want to seem like I was pushing you to like it.

Well I didn't make myself standout on purpose I just decided one day ponies were my main emote and it went from there.
User avatar #274 to #272 - dtox (12/26/2012) [-]
I'm sure your intention wasn't to just garner negative attention, but it was certainly a plausible outcome.
#276 to #274 - darkjustifier ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
I didn't know about their animosity to ponies on this site, I didn't see a single one for the half a year I was here, then I watched the show fell in love and I already told you the other part.
User avatar #278 to #276 - dtox (12/26/2012) [-]
Yes, I understand.
User avatar #279 to #278 - darkjustifier ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
So do you know what happened? with the bronies and stuff all I know is one day they were shoved into their boards and their channel and never posted outside them on penalty of a red thumb ban?
User avatar #283 to #279 - dtox (12/26/2012) [-]
funnyjunk was hit with a wave of MLP traffic, including posts that would make the front page daily. as well, people wanted a place where they could talk about MLP, and this was before any of the boards existed.

Ponytime channel was made, and a.d.m.i.n created the very first board, the pony thread, which didn't even have a direct link in the site's interface.

The fact that people were enjoying ponies unironically was a factor in the anger towards fans. But, of course, the times when fans would spam didn't help the situation either.

It was just a *********** of back and forth conflict, some haters wouldn't leave the bronies alone, and some bronies wouldn't shut up about their hobby (it was an often thing where some bronies would spam ponies to troll, much like spiderman threads, except pony spam would get an immediate angry response).

lastly, pony posts would frequently hit the front page, and even when they wouldn't, a couple of pages would be SATURATED by ponytime channel. back then, ponytime reached a peak of several hundred posts daily. And, since ponies are pretty much regarded as being on the same level as things like politics and religion, there were frequent ********** .
#285 to #283 - darkjustifier ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
And then the red thumbs got so high that bronies were finally pushed into the boards by them by fear of banning.
User avatar #286 to #285 - dtox (12/26/2012) [-]
Don't think of it like that, many fans were desiring a place where they could freely chat and go back and forth with their fandom, especially since ponytime has long since slowed down (it still gets a consistent 20+ posts a day, which is far more than what could be said for other fandom based channels on FJ).

people get tired of things when they see it so often, which is why even doctor who and anime related things get some hate from people.

MLP still gets hatred due to bias and ignorance, but a decent portion is also due to it being something popular.
#287 to #286 - darkjustifier ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
Actually I rarely see the fandom as active as it is now, not on fj but everywhere, you should see some of the amazing art that has been made recently.
#291 to #287 - dtox (12/26/2012) [-]
The thread ended.

How could you NOT tell I was a brony!? I've been engrossed with the fandom for well over a year and a half.

Have I not shared with you some of my artwork?

That's a caption I made a LOOOOONG time ago...

Are you lolspoon or something?
User avatar #257 to #256 - roliga (12/18/2012) [-]
Yeah Lolspoon got banned a while back when magical fairy princess went ban crazy and I just now realized I have the account back. I went though the "What people are saying about Lolspoon" section of my profile too. Never knew I gained so much popularity for pretending to hate bronies.
User avatar #258 to #257 - dtox (12/18/2012) [-]
hehe, I remember making that caption for a reply to one of your comments, which made me think "there's somethin about this guy, but I don't know exactly what," but I never posted the image, or a reply.

Then one day you just straight up said "I like ponies," and I was all like "CALLED IT!"

And yeah, I'm not sure if I just have a good memory, but you were infamous, at least to me. I always saw your name with some sort of belligerent comment. Never would have connected roliga with lolspoon, though.

User avatar #202 to #201 - dtox (10/06/2012) [-]
I might, I haven't been in the drawing mood recently, though.

What's your request?
User avatar #203 to #202 - teenspirit (10/06/2012) [-]
I've always had this idea (but could never draw it) for like, a humanized Vinyl, at her turntables, looking up and to the left at the viewer, with a glowstick between her teeth.
User avatar #204 to #203 - dtox (10/06/2012) [-]
hm, I'll think about it, but I can't make any promises. I WAS working on something in terms of drawing, but that came to a sudden stop as I've felt no desire to do anything else (borderlands 2 has also taken up a bit of my time lol).

but let me get this straight, it's vinyl, with her turn table facing the audience, and the "camera" is looking at her from her left, and she's looking at it? like with her eyes? or is her head turned towards it?

and when you say humanized, do you mean -full- human?
#207 to #204 - teenspirit (10/06/2012) [-]
A view exactly like this
User avatar #208 to #207 - dtox (10/06/2012) [-]
Ah, an excellent reference.

again, no promises, but having a reference like that helps get the gears going lol.
User avatar #209 to #208 - teenspirit (10/06/2012) [-]
No rush. Im trying to learn how to draw using a tablet anyway.
User avatar #205 to #204 - teenspirit (10/06/2012) [-]
Kinda like an over the shoulder camera, but rotated so you see her from the side. And she has her head turned facing it. Full human, and, no rush.
User avatar #206 to #205 - teenspirit (10/06/2012) [-]

being harassed, insulted and humiliated on a personal level by thread users who are no doubt friends with the mods, so of course when I retaliate, I get kicked and banned from there because I attacked the mods friends. not only that, i continually get called out and insulted in and out of thread everytime I come here, and the mods couldnt give less of a **** .

I honestly don't know what to say, since I'm not exactly acquainted with everything involved, and I'd basically be just taking your word for it.

In my defense, he insulted my deceased father, my soon to be daughter, questioned my soon to be fatherly aspect, and said I am a bad friend.

The catalyst of the mass discontinuation of friendship with Mali was because Mali and a girl got into a fight, and they share friends.
Since the cause of the fight was because of Mali's abrasive, unnecessary attitude to her, we assumed that he was not caring for his friends.
He began to victimize himself to The Friendly Board, making people hate this girl before she had a chance to speak about it. This aggravated his previous friends (Most of the people we know as the mods of Friendly).

I know I overreacted, and it was absolutely unnecessary for me to write such a rude message over skype.
From time to time, I look back at his last comments.
I still care for the guy, I was just out of my mind.
I found his DA which he visits daily. It'll be the last time i'm going to track him down to talk.
I just want to apologize.
User avatar #211 to #210 - dtox (11/03/2012) [-]
I'm not sure why you're bringing this up now, when the whole thing was over and done with nearly 2 months ago.

If you're worried about any sort of preconceptions I may have had about you, don't worry about it, I didn't know enough about anyone involved in that little debacle to form any sort of opinion on anyone's character, it wasn't my place to judge or to take sides.

But the fact that you want to make amends for any sort of wrong doing you feel you may have done is commendable, and I hope things work out between you and mali.

Just remember, not everything's your fault. Mali didn't exactly handle things maturely either, so don't be too harsh on yourself.

I don't agree with his behavior at all, he's acting very immature.

Aside from that, read this from phantoma funnyjunk.com/user_pictures/phantoma/3983084/MLP+Friendly+Board/624351#624351

Apparently this has been something with you for a while, and I can't really argue with the holder of the actual thread.

Man, you argue to much with people!
Not in a bad way though mind you, just...
Damn dude, how can you even stand putting up with it every time?
User avatar #152 to #151 - dtox (08/13/2012) [-]
Not sure exactly, I guess I'm just pretentious in that way that I get joy out of disproving other people.

I see a statement, something loaded with fallacies or just terrible argumentation, and it actually gets support due to bias, that doesn't sit well with me. And so I argue, maybe to inform people, or to possibly convince others of my point of view, but mainly because I detest ignorance.

Plus, it helps when people see my point and agree with me, because they too can adopt my arguments and use them to further convince others.

I don't believe in being apathetical either. I do tire of it from time to time, but in general it's just something I'm compelled to do.

I enjoy a good argument as well from time to time, I used to do it quite often in the past actually, but I've found it more fun to just make joke comments in response to them usually.

It is nice to see when people say something like "I see your point"

(don't mind the picture, it's just me tempting you to buy stuff again)

Is that you with the shirt?

your hair is really curly :P

(if I'm gonna get a shirt, it will have twilight sparkle on it...)
User avatar #155 to #154 - ragingbrony (08/13/2012) [-]
Yes, it's more wavy than curvy though, I just haven't washed it today, so what ever it did while I was asleep is still there.

Your choice in unicorn disappoints me!
User avatar #156 to #155 - dtox (08/13/2012) [-]
Bah! twilight is the SUPERIOR unicorn to your PEASANT of a DJ D:<

still, it would be EPIC if there was an episode that included characters like vinyl with a voice.

My laptop is ****** and can't run games very well...
I once had TF2 installed, but just trying to go through the Single Player tutorial sessions were laggy as hell.
User avatar #160 to #159 - dtox (08/13/2012) [-]
ah, it's the same with my laptop. it can run it alright, but damn does it get hot lol.

that's why I have this desktop to do all of my games on :P

I've only got my laptop, and spending money on another computer isn't really high on my to-do list.
User avatar #162 to #161 - dtox (08/13/2012) [-]
I mostly got this desktop for games, but my interest in playing games has severely diminished over the years since getting it.

I still play games like SWTOR and TF2 from time to time, but I mostly just lie back and surf the web on my laptop. Plus, my laptop has a **** ton of old games on it, all of which I enjoy playing (I survived the move to texas because I had diablo 2 to pass the time lol).

Whenever I reflect on these things, I realize that I'm actually just a mean spirited person, but I spent the entire thread laughing to myself.

I had myself a good hearty laugh at your comment (I'm guessing you were the anon, if not then my mistake).

couple of people took it a bit more seriously than necessary, yeah, but a lot of your comments quickly became rather condescending.

User avatar #144 to #143 - SemiAnon (08/08/2012) [-]
Yeah, I'm the anons. Like I said, I realize how much of a dick I can be, but it is reasonably fun.

If I learned anything, the most upsetting thing I did for people was to insult the dude with the handlebar mustache.
User avatar #145 to #144 - dtox (08/08/2012) [-]
well, dusty IS a pretty big name in the brony fandom, and is generally a really cool guy.

I was wondering, since a lot of what you were doing was trolling, that little comment of yours describing the fandom as like a "security blanket," referring to pretty much the whole sentence, did you mean that?
User avatar #146 to #145 - SemiAnon (08/08/2012) [-]
I believe that it is the case for a portion, how large I don't know, though definitely the minority, of bronies.
It at least makes some sense in my mind. Social outcasts finding a group that will accept them no matter what. At the same time, that group is defying social norms, so joining them can be a metaphoric finger to the society that rejected them.
The whole "closet" brony thing just adds to the assumption that many are already picked on and ridiculed, so they hide what could be considered more fuel for the fire.

In short, I believe that it is a security blanket for some, but no more than 10%, which would be an understandable aspect of any fandom.
User avatar #147 to #146 - dtox (08/08/2012) [-]
eh, I would imagine a larger percentage, honestly.

There is definitely a sense of acceptance and comfort within the community, a wide range of friendly, supportive groups have sprouted up and, as a result, fans of the show who're generally shut in and, likely, psychologically abnormal have felt more welcomed and out going, especially since "brony meetups" are rather popular.

I can't tell you how many times I've heard the story of how people have turned away from suicide since getting into the community, or how the show has helped others with things such as depression (the creator of the blog "pony confessions" got out of her drug addiction because of it).

Though, as you've said, it's a minority, which was a conclusion even made by sociologists who have been studying the fandom (doctorate holding professors of universities, no less). they've stated that, from their studies and evidence, the fandom is not pathological in nature.

I found that refreshing when I heard that, honestly. I've met so many bronies who have things such as aspergers (something even I have), that I was beginning to wonder if autism really was a factor in liking the show lol.
