Heres the problem i dont think fetish is an inapropiate name for my stallion. Im not naming him porn or sex pr dick. But anyhow my horse got rejected because of it. It gets me pretty pissed off since it has not necesarily sexual base. I think pretty hard on my horses names and here in mexico a friend used to have a FEI.registered horse named fetiche (fetish in spanish) so this is compleatly lacking reality and nothing to do with FEI what equus was searching at the beginning.
Fetishhs for all those who have no idea is noted at the dictionary as. Definition of fetish
a : an object (as a small stone carving of an animal) believed to have magical power to protect or aid its owner; broadly : a material object regarded with superstitious or extravagant trust or reverence
b : an object of irrational reverence or obsessive devotion : prepossession
Hello, I believe you're looking for me. I decided that the word 'fetish' wasn't appropriate for Equus, in keeping with our R13 rating.
While I am aware of the alternate non-sexual meaning of fetish, I don't believe that anyone would consider that meaning when reading this word. (I believe you agree, since you knew you would need to explain that it even had a different meaning.)
I also empathise with your response that you know of a real life horse with this name. However, we must remember that while Equus does strive to be realistic, and does follow FEI regulations in some ways, Equus is not exactly the same as real life, and our obligations to provide appropriate and child-friendly content comes before any goals we have toward realism or emulation of the FEI.
I am locking this topic as our ratings and content restrictions are not up for debate. If you have further concerns you are welcome to message me.
@Lana-Rea-Collins thanks ASB technically have a soft spot in my heart, but because I never really got into gaited breeds I never really wanted them at my stable. Until recently of course.
Since now I know most gaited horses can cross over to some Western disciplines I may actually try 5 gaited horses instead of just 2. I still enjoy western discipline but it isn't my all time focus.
I just need to find templates now....
