The Principality of Trotterdam wrote:I'm not sure about the music inside the restaurant. It had a definite exotic feel to it, but I'm not sure if it's authentically Indian or if they went "eh, it's somewhere to the east, close enough". Not an expert.

Given how they treated Zecora, I wouldn't give them that much credit.

The Principality of Trotterdam wrote:So of the people who responded on the poll, we have 15 reported boys, while only 2 voters claimed to be girls, and one of those admitted to possibly being dishonest.
"Congratulations", then, to The Laser-Wielding Commune of Intergalactic Penguins for being our token female. (Maybe.)
I'm honestly not surprised boys are in the majority, but still, a 15:1 ratio? I hadn't expected it to be this bad.
Sure, a lack of women seems to be a common problem found just about everywhere on the internet, but this is My Little Pony, a show specifically targetted at girls. Yet its fandom still doesn't have any?
Of course, My Little Pony was also targetted at children (primarily female). It developed an unexpectedly large adult male fanbase, but did it somehow still fail to become popular among adult women, or are they just hanging out in different social circles?
Now, this may be more due to the demographics of NationStates, rather than the demographics of My Little Pony. If I ran the poll on a more purely pony-oriented site, I'd hope to receive an at least slightly better balance. Still, from my (non-statistically-rigorous) experience, I rather suspect I would find girls to be the minority even there.
I had hoped that a female-oriented show which is also highly popular among males would help bring the genders closer together by giving us common ground. Yet the gulf seems as big as ever. I find this really disappointing.

I do seem to recall that from the 'State of the Herd' reports and some EqD polls, that the fandom is somewhere along a 80-20 male-to-female split. Or at least the part of the fandom that is willing to fill out censuses :D

From personal observation at cons, I would roughly estimate that there is a 20-30% split. A noticeable difference, but not to the point where female fans are uncommon.

Trotterdam, I hope you don't mind me taking over your pollster's job for a day, but I've been wanting to put this one up for the past couple weeks. We never could come to an agreement on IRC chat, so I figured I'd throw it out for the region here.

Hey, changeling at the end of The Crystalling. You never know.

Well, it's now the Summer Sun Celebration, so with the sunrise, I'd like to wish everyone a happy Year 16 of the Seventh Age!

God bless Britain from the US!

*looks up what everyone is talking about*

Ah yes. A 51.9%:48.1% majority vote. Democracy at its finest!

Hopefully no one's considering a Ponexit here. :)
