Sexual Harassment Panda

Ok let’s start this out right. As far as I’m aware, I am not a furry. I hold nothing but respect for them and I say “As far as I am aware, I am not a furry.” because I could be. I’ve seen furry porn. I’ve used furry porn and I’m a big fan of furry art (Not even porn, just the use of anthropomorphic characters). That said this is a strange thing I’ve seen for a few years in my local Walmart.

From looking at this image I can see some things I’d consider odd but to start off let’s just look at it. I see this image and I think, it’s just kind of meh. But look closer at each individual character.

This is a cutesy giraffe. Nothing crazy. Nothing silly. Just a giraffe with a necklace that I think (personally) would appeal to little girls.

This is a cute little zebra. A little more punk rock with the mohawk mane, but still pretty simple. Not much standing out but to counter that punk rock attitude a cute little butterfly on her nose. I think it is reasonable to assume all of these characters are female. And I’m pretty sure this image has been her belong since before MLP became popular again so I think we can rule out them trying to use this to bring in the bronies. So this also seems to be pulling at the little girls.

I’m just going to stop you there and ask if you are thinking the same thing as me. Are you thinking…

“That panda wants the D?”

I’m serious how often do you see that pose without it meaning “Hey, look at me I’m hot.” But for the life of me I can’t figure out why they would use it.

Seriously I’ve walked past this thing to get to the chips hundreds of times and it still just irks me.
