Well, it WOULD be bestiality if Fluttershy was a common horse, a stupid instinct-driven animal incapable of formulating speech, critical thinking, independent thought, character development, and understanding economics and politics. Since she is capable of speech, critical thinking, independent though, character development, and understanding economics and politics, she is basically a technicolor equine-shaped human. Therefore, not an animal; therefore, not bestiality. I don't even like ART of animals. I seriously don't care about horses at all. I see them as tools to use for transportation, battle, gambling (OTB), and maybe vocational racing. But the ponies of FiM are different, as they are intelligent, and drawn with an art style vaguely similar to anime. You haven't seen that internet post about how the even skin tone, facial symmetry, and big/expressive eyes and hair affect seratonin and melanin levels in the brain due to being recognized as signs of human fertility, in EXACTLY the same way as anime, meaning that Clop is no different than Hentai depending on the art style, have you?
Bestiality = sex with animals. But humans are technically animals. So, Bestiality = sex with nonhuman animals. But that means that sex with elves, vampires, and aliens would technically count as bestiality. So, Bestiality = sex with unintelligent living things.
The ponies of MLP:FiM are intelligent living things, because of the reasons I listed [speech, critical thinking, independent though, character development, and understanding economics + politics]. Therefore, sex with the MLP:FiM ponies is NOT bestiality.
I don't give a bit about horses at all. I am not sexually attracted to horses. But I can potentially find the MLP:FiM ponies to be attractive, depending on art style which, again, is similar to anime art style, which stimulates certain chemicals in the brain that have to do with arousal et cetera.
I'm perfectly aware that Elves, Vampires, Aliens, Ponies, et cetera are fictional. But I'm attracted to personalities, not physical characteristics. I know that they'll never exist, but it's fiction, and I love fiction of all varieties. Personally, I see attraction to intelligent sentient living beings to be normal, regardless of whether they're 100% human. What I will NOT condone is attraction to unintelligent living beings, like animals. Bestiality is bad, 'mmkay?
I do not care about horse art. Horses are animals and tools to be used by humans, again, for combat, hobbyist riding, jockeys and other sports, and Off-Track Betting.
The Ponies from MLP:FiM are living, breathing, intelligent, deep characters with personality. They're just technicolor quadrupedal hooved humans. Just like elves are immortal pointy-eared magical humans, vampires are humanoid immortal parasitic hunters, and aliens are humans from other worlds.
How does it not make sense to you, so I can explain it so it does make sense?
Ah not exactly. The ponies on mlp aren't humans that look like horses, they ARE horses with the intelligence of humans. I've heard of a defamation to beastiality the defines it as "intercourse with a creature that share little to no physiological or genetic similarities to humans". Meaning that havening sex with vampires, elves etc is not beastiality because, if they were real, they would resemble humans in appearance and genetic/physiological structure. Some might even consider them a different races of humans(which is a fair sensation). Think of it like a dog mating with a wolf(not the best example, I know but you get the picture.) now, humans and ponies share little to no genetic or physiological similarities between them ( other than the similarities that exist due to evolution.) while both are mammals they are still to far in the biological scale to not be considered bestially. Think of a chimpanzee having sex with a cat. So yeah, you having sex with flutters will still be considered beastiality, by some pepole any way. p.s your example with aliens needs to be more specific as there are many aliens that having sex with wouled be conisdered beastiality and many aliens that wont.
Fluttershy strikes me as being the kind of girl who, if she were human, would have an absolutely spectacular figure, but is so shy that she'd hide it away. Big thick sweaters, long skirt, boots, even using her long hair to cover her face.
