The "Horse kid" you remember as a kid, (Stereotyped to girl, imo any and all genders may apply) you know: loved horses, read horse books, may have ridden horses?

But here's a question for you. If one was obsessed with UNICORNS as a child, and read unicorn books, were they a "horse kid"?

@lapis @lapis I started as a horse kid and then moved smoothly into unicorns. It all felt like the same motivation.

@lapis I love how characteristically rural this trope is, and how it shows how rural the US, as a society, still is, regardless of the numbers of people formally living on metro areas (while, in fact, suburbs and exurbs barely behave as cities)

@lapis unicorns are not horses, any more than humans are monkeys.
