EDIT: The deadline has been extended until the 4th of February at 10pm UK time because I forgot to specify the time zone in the first journal. I'm sorry for this blunder. Origins
Too many negative gender stereotypes are around. All these false pretenses about masculinity and femininity are damaging to everybody in the long run. Like how women shouldn't do working roles seen as male roles which require "manly" strength, or how men should not ever show emotion, play with dolls or do anything seen as girly. There's a long list of things for both men and women but in the interest of not writing something a mile long let's leave it here.
Now with that bit over, here's what the actual competition is.Task
Your task is to draw a pony or ponies destroying something symbolic of any gender stereotype. The way you choose to do that is entirely up to you. When I say destroy something symbolic I don't mean like setting fire to a book I mean like... metaphorically destroy. Although if you want to take it literally and make ponies smash stuff you can if you want.Prizes up for grabs

Gender stereotypes aren't good for anybody. Individuality and equality are better. What sex or gender you are shouldn't be a limiting factor on what you want to do in life. Also, have fun.
I hope to see some interesting creations and some imagination in use.
