What's with all the damned MLP?

Listen guys...
I've seen a lot of your work...
A lot of you are very talented artists with and excellent feel for a character's depth, form, shadow.. Yadda yadda...
And aside from the "Yadda Yadda" I truly meant that.

But... Some of you have the SERIOUS obsession with my little freakin' pony...
WONDERFUL artists I see and their deviations are a MANAGERIE of ponies! With, like, one maybe TWO original works...

I'm sick of all these ponies, OC ponies, humanized ponies, pinup ponies, FANART, etc...

Now, don't get me wrong, I feel bad for this. I sure as shit, as an artist, wouldn't want someone traipsing into MY office and telling me the work I should/should not be doing.

But C'MON!!
Draw/paint something ELSE!!!!
A tree! Your grandma taking a dump in the dark! ANYTHING!
208 submissions in your own art page and it's 95% PONIES!!!
What the HELL!?!?

What a completely original thread for a problem that is obviously worth caring about. This isn't even a first-world problem, it's a obnoxious-nerd problem.

I think the phase 'beating a dead My Little Pony' has worn out it's use at this point.

Who are you to tell someone what they can/should and can't/shouldn't draw?

I refuse to believe that people still need to complain about MLP on the site.
