Top 13 Even More Disturbing MLP:FiM Fan Works (#1)

Now is the moment you’ve all been waiting for. The moment you’ve been anticipating since the start. The moment that has been killing you in suspense. Especially after being delayed for so long, for so many days after Halloween.

Finally we’ve reach the top post in this list. Finally we’ve reached the most disturbing fan work. And boy have I saved the most disturbing for last. It may be late, but better late than never, am I right?

Enough waiting! Let’s dive right into this!

As I mentioned in this list and my original list, I don’t really have a problem with Pony porn. Is it disturbing that porn exists of multi-colored ponies from a little girl’s cartoon? Oh, Sweet Celestia, yes! But is it inevitable? Well, yes.

Rule 34 states that, if it exists, there’s porn for it. And because My Little Pony exists, My Little Pony porn also exists, whether you like it or not—and if you don’t like it, well, that’s what mature filters are for.

And while one can make the argument that this counts as bestiality, one can also argue that, as with furries, these pony characters are sentient creatures with the ability to verbalize their sexual consent, and thus sexual relations involving them are perfectly legit—creepy, but still very much legit.

But there’s no denying that pony porn can sink to excruciating levels of depravity. I mean, have you seen some of the crap posted on Rule 34? I hate to get explicit here, but there’s this one picture where Pinkie Pie is sprawled out on her bed and [censored for your convenience], and then Twilight Sparkle comes along and sticks her horn [also censored for your convenience], and then Big Mac comes along and whips out his 14-inch [even more censorship for your convenience] all over the place!

Truly revolting stuff! Just heinous beyond all belief! The kind of thing that makes you feel like you need a shower. The kind of thing that makes you feel like’s there’s no hope for the human species. That is the kind of erotica that comes from this fandom!

But like I said: as disturbing as it may be to contemplate Pony porn, the fact remains that it’s inevitably going to exist, and as long as it involves the pony characters who reasonably appear to be consenting adults, then it’s pretty much legit.

Notice how I mentioned “consenting adults.” That’s a very important distinction. Because while it’s one thing for porn to exist of Twilight Sparkle or Pinkie Pie, the porn featuring the much younger, underage characters is of a whole different category entirely—and by that, I mean of a category that will land your flank in jail.

And yet it exists. And it has a name. Foalcon!

#1: Foalcon

As the name suggests, Foalcon is a genre of pony porn featuring the younger characters of the show, most notably the Cutie Mark Crusaders—Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo—but also characters like Spike, Snips and Snails, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon, Twist, Pipsqueak, Dinky Hooves, Feather Weight, Rumble, and Babs Seed.

I’ve already covered this topic with Megasweet in my last list, along with the fan fiction Foaling Around With The CMC and the pedobear who wrote it, HotSauce, but trust me when I say that this was only the tip of the iceberg.

Oh Sweet Celestia, is it only the tip!

And no, I’m not going to show any examples here. I fear that simply searching for this stuff will put me at risk of a visit from the police—or worse, Chris Hansen.

But if you have the stomach to search for it, and you’re not worried about the NSA possibly monitoring and collecting your search engine results, if you search for this art on Google Images with SafeSearch Off, you will eventually come across it.

Oh Sweet Celestia, will you come across it! And you will wish you never did!!

But believe me when I say this gets worse. What could be worse than underage pony porn? Well how about apologists for underage pony porn?! Because the only thing worse than a Nazi is an apologist for a Nazi!

Yes, believe it or not, there are perverts out there who defend foalcon. I managed to come across a few after creating my first list, and trust me, the only thing worse than people who defend foalcon are the arguments they use to defend it.

Their main argument, and the most flimsy, is that these underage characters are only fictional, and thus porn of them doesn’t count as real child porn.

Sorry. That doesn’t fly with me. As I said in my last list, fictional or not, an underage minor is still an underage minor, and porn featuring them is still child porn, which, last time I checked, is illegal.

One way many foalcon artists try to skirt around this is by depicting these characters as full-grown adults, thus technically making them adults and not children, and thus making it regular porn rather than child porn.

This could very well be a legit loophole, but it still comes across as creepy, and let me explain why: Imagine you’re somewhere with a lot of young children like a daycare or playground. You notice a four-year-old girl playing among the other children. An older man next to you makes the comment that he would totally tap that keg when the wine becomes ripe enough—if you know what he means!

That man would be kicked out and placed on a sex offender’s list faster than he could say “But I can wait!” Imagining little children as adults in order to fulfill your sick sexual fantasies is still sick. Just sick.

Obviously this type of fan art isn’t isolated to My Little Pony. Other children’s cartoons have had their underage female characters drawn in ways to appease the sick sexual fantasies of perverted fan artists. I know there were men my age who liked Dora the Explorer or Penny Gadget, but—Sweet Celestia!—I never imagined they liked them that way! Nothing against having a sexual infatuation with a fictional character, but if that character has yet to reach puberty, then you might want to seriously consider getting off the internet and visiting a psychiatrist.

Even more disturbing is that this fan art, either intentionally or not, seems to be part of a bigger trend to normalize pedophilia. Yes, there are people out there who seriously believe pedophiles deserve the same rights as everyone else.

You may have heard of NAMBLA, the National American Man/Boy Love Association, the organization with the mission to ensure that middle-age creepers can legally express their "love" towards their underage rape victims—excuse me, I mean “love interests”, but believe me when I say there are non-NAMBLA members out there, especially on the internet, who share their same beliefs.

These sickos seriously consider pedophilia to be no more taboo than any other sexual preference, and feel that pedophiles deserve the same rights as everyone else, even going so far as to draw a false equivalency between pedophiles and homosexuals, arguing that they share the same plight as any other disenfranchised group in history.

To anyone who lacks critical thinking skills, this comparison makes sense, until you realize there’s an important distinction: whereas prejudice towards homosexuals is based upon antiquated social norms, prejudice towards pedophiles is based upon the concept of sexual consent, which underage minors, unlike consenting homosexuals, are unable to express.

And yes, one could make the argument that pedophilia wasn’t always considered taboo, as many ancient cultures approved of it. But then the ancient world also approved of slavery. We’ve since progressed as a species and there’s no sense in turning back anytime soon.

But what irks me is when people in my camp support this crap. Yes, believe it or not, there are libertarians and ancaps who seriously believe that pedophilia is perfectly compatible with the non-aggression principle (even though it clearly isn’t), and as such, age-of-consent laws should be repealed and child pornography should be decriminalized.

Don't beleive me? Check out this thread in the anarcho-capitalist subreddit where ancaps argue in favor of child porn.

As another anecdote, when I created my last list, I received a lot of flak on the Bogosity Forum over my entry on Megasweet. One user chastised me for arguing over the legality of both child porn and bestiality. He argued that just because something was illegal didn’t make it wrong, such as with the case with drugs: "So are drugs [illegal], yet I don't see you having any moral issue with them, cherry picker....Sorry, but the state is not the ultimate arbiter of morality, pal. So tell me how beliveing it does makes you a libertarian, much less an anarcho-capitalist again?"

Yes, apparently child porn and bestiality are "victimless crimes" like drugs—even though they’re clearly not!

But the real shame came when Shane Killian, someone whom I normally respect, suggested I consider visiting a psychiatrist: "This guy has serious issues that he needs to speak with a psychiatrist about."

So let me get this straight, Shane: perverts draw porn of underage girls, I react accordingly, and I’m the one who needs to see a psychiatrist?

Look, I’m willing to concede that there is nuance and gray matter when it comes to these issues. Certainly there have been incidents where age-of-consent laws have been used to prosecute teenage sex, and as such, there should be discussion about how these laws are implemented.

But with nuance in mind, there is a major difference between an 18-year-old having sex with his 16-year-old girlfriend and a 40-year-old creeper wanting to have his way with a 6-year-old.

Likewise, there’s a major difference between a 16-year-old sexting a nude selfie to her boyfriend (who forwards it to his friends and leaks it to the internet) and an entire movie company that produces child porn for middle-age creepers to jack-off to. Big. Major. Freaking. Difference.

Let me make this crystal clear: underage minors are not mature enough to comprehend sex; therefore, they are unable to give sexual consent; therefore, sexual relations with them are considered rape; therefore, pornography depicting sexual relations with minors are illegal. This is why we have age-of-consent laws and child pornography bans.

And again, there is certainly gray matter when it comes to these laws. We can debate how far they are implemented and how they are implemented. We can debate what age constitutes the age of consent. Should it remain at 18? Or should it be lowered. To 16? 14? We can debate what constitutes child pornography.

There is room for healthy debate over the implementation of these laws, but there is no debate for their existence, and there is certainly no debate about the legality or morality of pedophilia. It is wrong, both legally and morally. There. Is. No. Debate.

If there's any solance to all this, it's that foalcon is something that most fansites tend to crackdown on. But the fact that this is even a genre is disturbing in and of itself.

How disturbing is it? As disturbing as the Child Snatcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang! (This reference is much creepy in this context, isn't it?)
