TJS Fetish



  • 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
    1
    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





  • I'm speaking out of turn here and I apologize for that, however the name may fly on other forums, but this is a family friendly forum and therefore the name may not fly due to the ahem sexual terms it can be associated with.

    It is wise to just change it instead of argue with it in the end. If the horse came prenamed(most of Cleo's horses do) talk to her and let her know what is going on. She will understand and let you change the name.

    (I've seen names that have heavy profanity in it for some of TJS horses)



  • @Serenity-Gwin i chose the name myself would it be allowed if i wrote it in spanish ?



  • @Mariana-Pereda-Sloan that I am not sure of, you can message a staff who does registry and ask before making final changes.

    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.
