Sorry about the lack of post yesterday and snippiness in comments, I’ve been sick.
A not-at-all-bad essay has been floating around on the topic of sexism in the brony community. It’s actually got some of the same points I made in the book (indeed, one of the author’s correspondents seems to have used almost the exact same words to describe her experiences as when I interviewed her), but with a stronger focus on the downside to being a woman in the brony community. Slightly off-putting that the author keeps referring to “males” and “females” and at one point equates “having a vagina” with being a woman, but it appears to be out of pure cisnormative ignorance rather than actual transphobia. It’s obnoxious but adaptable to, is basically what I’m saying, and worth putting up with for the meat of the essay. Certainly it’s given me some interesting avenues to look into for Book 2.
