For the motivational poster thing, all I can say is to beware of your word choice. Try to make something your pony of choice would say (or has already said if you directly quote the show); if you do something like have Twilight talk about how sexual abuse is wrong, then they're seen as a mouthpiece for your own views, rather than a general message of inspiration. Also, avoid words like "Feminism" and "gender", because the picture can be taken out of context and used to support Radical views.

Wasn’t planning on talking about anything gender/feminist/sexual orientation related. And I always try to be careful with my words when I post an opinion.

I actually think I might use Green Lantern AppleJack and HunterJack together.

Here we go again automatically associating this trend of “Motivational Ponies” with extremist feminism and anti-feminism. Not everything has to do with those petty, meaningless arguments.

I don’t care where the trend came from any more than I care about the origin of the stupidest meme on 4chan. The Motivational Ponies thing is now just a fun way for artists to express themselves in a positive way.

I hope everyone, feminist or troll or whatever the hell they are, will keep their poison away from people who just want to have fun drawing ponies.

Sorry, bonmod; I just couldn’t help but think about how nice people like the mod of Ask Scrappaper have had their art defaced just for supporting regular feminism, and it’s something I don’t want to see other well-meaning artists caught up in when they just want to have fun.

hm, I guess I overreacted then. Sorry endark

I really want to draw one of those motivational ponies.
But I don’t know who to use or what to say.

If I learn nothing else from this show, I will forever remember that Twilight Sparkle has taught me I am more than my mistakes. I can overcome them and come out better, stronger, and smarter than I was before.

been seeing a lot of these feminist ponies around lately and im very happy about that
though this isnt exactly feminist, i think it’s good to add motivational/encouraging ponies to the mix! and who better to do that than princess cadence?
