Welcome to the General Discussion area where just about anything goes! This area is designed to discuss all matters and does not necessarily have to be Transformers related. Please keep topics relevant.
After watching a documentary on Bronies and listening to the twin cast podcast.
I have a question I like to ask this website.
How come female "Transformers" fans have an easier time with not getting publicly heckled then male "My Little Pony" fans?
We live in an interesting time in pop culture when robots have become more gender neutral then horses.

Because female Transformers fans don't get nearly as creepy as bronies can get.
I've seen things. Horrible things. Things that will haunt me to the end of my days...
EDIT: It's also an age-old double standard: Girls being into boy's stuff is far more socially acceptable than boys being into girl's stuff.

This, so this.
Well, we do have some "prejudices" towards female fans, but it's all in good humor:Transfan Profiles IV: the Fanette

Bronies are a whole nother can of worms. They've basically taken over the show and made the fanbase horribly unsafe for MLP's actual audience. Female TFans are just that; fans of the Transformers franchise who also happen to be female.
