I'm a bit confused... it appears that this trope is specifically about when a female fandom is attracted to a male-oriented show due to Perverse Sexual Lust, but with Testosterone Brigade, it's just used to mean "a male Periphery Demographic for female-oriented media".

See the trope picture... barring a few cloppers here or there, I'm assuming the Bronies aren't there out of PSL.

Say, is it really even necessary to make the "within a traditionally male-dominated fandom" distinction for this trope?

From reading some of the discussion surrounding this trope and Mr. Fanservice, I think I now understand the trope better. It's not just "he has female fans" (which would leave out Justin Bieber). It's a work where a significant portion of the female fanbase were initially attracted to the hot male characters - although it is possible for some of them to, later on, decide that also like other aspects of the show.
