This a group who think foalcon shouldn't belong in the feature box. It's disturbing, gross, and scaring away potential bronies and pegasisters.

Well, as you've specifically said, the rules state 'anthro or human'. This rule thus does not apply to pony foalcon. I believe Knighty said something about it and how he follows the UK laws on such things, and that it only applies to humans or something.

Not sure though

I don't understand at all why foalcon gets approved when the "Do not post" specifically says not to post "Mature stories involving human or anthro characters under 18". It's directly against the rules but there are hundreds of foalcon stories out there. It's probably against the law in some ways too. I feel like we should just go and report all of it.

370395 Thanks, believe it or not, I'm not usually an angry kind of person. :derpytongue2:

Hey, no problem. The problem with fetish and illegal stuff, is that you rarely have people to talk about it, thus you can get all these incorrect notions about it in your head.

Glad I could help.

370374 Huh:rainbowhuh: I apologize for my close-mindedness then. Sorry for acting like a prick, sometimes I over-react to certain things, especially to things pedophilia, (seeing as I've seen several pedophiles in stores and such watching little kids and pre-teens way too intently, and have had friends who have been molested.)

370366
Legaly, 12-16(18 in some countries) year olds aren't capable of consent, but kids of that age usually already know a bit of sex and are capable of loving someone. Now, I'm not saying that these kids should be considered adults, but I think that kids around the 14-16 margin have enough of an idea to know what they're doing and what sex entails. Besides, there are plenty of men who harbor fantasies about sexy schoolgirls or teenagers, which would be considered pedophilia by law.

I'll pitch in here too. Too much Information starting from the line below this one

I have a few fetishes myself. The most extreme ones would be rape and bestiality. Now, the fact that I have this fetish, and actively search stories about this and enjoy those stories, doesn't mean that I'm on a definite path to destruction and acting on these fetishes. Despite really liking rape fetish, I'm a really nice guy, and I could never live with myself raping someone. As for bestiality, I don't have attraction to animals themselves, just for women getting overtaken by pure primal instinct.

You see, every fetish has different characteristics, and not all people like these fetishes for the same reasons. I like rape for the loss of control bit for the subject, while some people like it so they can imagine themselves in a position of power. The same goes for pedophilia.

What is wrong, is different for every person. No matter what laws and such say. There are pedophiles that know that what they're doing is wrong, and act on it anyway. There are also pedophiles that make their intentions clear, and ask permission, and don't think that mutual love between underage and adults is wrong.

Something being wrong is usually what attracts people to it. The thrill of doing something forbidden is usually what attracts some people, and once they get in over their head, they have no way out. As for in my reply above, I know that rape is wrong, I'd punch a rapist's teeth out if I found one but that doesn't stop me from having that fantasy, nor wishing to engage in such a roleplay with a consenting partner.

327906 Is it really even possible to desire something that one knows is wrong? If you think something is wrong, doesn't that mean that you're against it? How can anyone possibly enjoy something the're against?

370356 Yes, but fetishes work differently. If something is an obsession, then there is nothing in the fetishist's mind, that will ever compare to the real thing. Sure porn may sate them for a short while, but eventually, it simply won't be enough to even work as an outlet anymore.

370355 I'm would never kill anyone, pedophile or otherwise, I may be a lot of things but I'm most certainly no psycho. I'm not a killer, nor do I ever intend on becoming one. Also, I'm not saying that they should be killed, I'm just saying if they felt so inclined to do anything to themselves, then I wouldn't waste my energy trying to discourage them. As for my comment, I was saying that there are only two possible ways that a pedophile can protect people from themselves.

Also, since when are 12-14 year olds capable of consent?

That same argument has been used against violent video games and pornography - that violent video games would make people more violent, and that pornography would cause an increase in illicit sexual behavior.

In real life, since the advent of violent video games such as Doom and readily available, free pornography on the Internet, both the homicide and rape rates have fallen by over 50%. We have certainly not seen an increase in such activities and, in fact, we appear to see an overall, massive decrease in said activities, which suggests a substitution effect - that is to say, people are less likely to go out and kill people or rape people when they can just shoot monsters in a video game and wank to porn on their computer.

And why not? Raping and killing people is a lot of work.

Thus, the balance of the evidence is that there is no deleterious effect from such entertainment, and it may well actually have a protective effect, as people may use said entertainment in lieu of the actual activity.

So, while it may be creepy to see people with their BDSM/pedophilia/zoophilia/cannibalism/ect. stories, chances are that they are unlikely to keep someone as a slave in their basement, rape a child, have sex with their dog, or eat someone.

It isn't illegal for people to be attracted to children; it is illegal for them to have sex with them or otherwise molest them.

As a defender of the right to freedom of speech, frankly, I think it is somewhat appalling that some people apparently have trouble distinguishing fantasy from reality. If you can't distinguish fantasy from reality, then you need help. I sorely doubt most people who write these stories or enjoy these stories will ever actually be a danger to any child, and in fact, I doubt most of them are even pedophiles.

They may be creepy as hell, or in some cases, may be children themselves (remember, there are probably many people on this site who illegally attest to being over the age of 18 so that they can read pony pornography - and I'm sure, in many cases, write it) which is a bit less creepy but still kind of messed up (and, ironically, actually illegal - lying about your age is a criminal offense), but I don't think that they present any real danger to the world at large, by and large.

Also, just FYI, Knighty has some foalcon on his favorites list, so I think your complaining about them is likely to fall on deaf ears.

If you really can't stand seeing foalcon in the feature box, my advice to you is two things:

1) There isn't that much of it, so you could, rather easily, push it out of the feature box by writing better stories. Only seven stories get featured at a time (plus three updated stories); if you filled the feature box with good stories all the time, the foalcon wouldn't get in there.

2) Untick the mature story box. This will save you from all the other super creepy stuff as well, such as rapefics, HIE sex stories, diaperfics, ect.

If you're saying people should kill themselves, 'just because' they're attracted to children and can't do anything about that, then you're worse than them. The fact that they're attracted to children, doesn't mean that they'll ever do it (hence the double-bladed sword that is a healthy outlet, that removes this pressure, but also normalizes it for the extreme ones)

370313
Foalcon isn't shown in a negative light as often as murder because it's not as bad. pedophilia is acting on sexual desires (which I don't condone) but from ages 12-14 and up, it at least has the posibilty of mutual desire. I don't support any pedophile who just 'takes' what he wants though.

And murder, that's just snuffing someone's life out. Erasing over 50 years of possibilities.

370314
Blind prejudice, like you're showing when you say all pedophiles should be killed, is what scares away other people besides pedophiles. You're not acting logical, you're just feeling an intense hatred for a particular group and let that hatred guide you.

306637 To promote something is to encourage it's practice! Also, the only people that are going to be scared off by hatred of pedophiles are pedophiles. One last thing, it's not prejudice if it's deserved.

307261 Because even those stories that have to do with murder, don't often portray it in a positive light. When someone starts portraying it in a positive way however, that actually promotes it.

306919 If a pedophile doesn't wants to be one, why don't they either a) turn themselves in to the police, and plead guilty at court and do everyone else a favor.
or b) kill themselves and do everyone else out there a huge favor.

327100 I agree 100%. I tried saying that it was wrong, and that it's stuff like that which makes people hate bronies, but sadly, I was shot down for taking a stand against the sickening filth, that seems to make up about half of the fandom. I honestly wonder sometimes, why it is I haven't completely abandoned all hope for bronies as a whole. Surely there are way, way, way more non-pedophile bronies out there than pedo-bronies right?
Edit: Sorry if that sounded a little negative, sometimes I have to remind myself just how many good people there are in our fandom.

I dont understand why it exists tbh. Most foalcon stories I read have the ages bumped up. Those that don't are just plain strange.

Ountcay me in isthay!

327906 As I respect yours.

I'm not saying this site SHOULD be a recluse for people with these urges but I am saying that it probably already has. A lot of fandoms probably have these tiny corners of forbidden fetishes (rape, pedophilia) but in our fandom it's bigger because our fandom is bigger AND we have underage characters who get their own episodes.

I still see no harm in indulging an illegal desire in a fictual space. Sure, it might incourage some people to act these out but it will also do a lot of good for the people who are concious enough about how bad the thing they desire is.

fictional pedophilia affect you as much as the cover-art, title and description of such a story. If you grasp these things or our 'image' as reasons to ban these, then I cannot support these because all the good that such fics do gets ignored.

tl;dr
I don't like this group but I respect your right to have an opinion and voice it.
