I don't need your validation, or want it. Not important. I know I'm straight, and the stash of porn on my PC would back me up on that pretty heavily.
What pisses ME off about this is the total lack of reasoning ANY of you have for singling this show out, and saying it should be canceled because you don't personally approve of it's fanbase. The logic behind it all is so shallow and baseless that to me it feels like someone refusing to see "Princess and the Frog" because they deem the source-material as impossible to be made good, or someone refusing to play the Kirby games because the main character happens to be pink.
It pisses me off because people ONLY seem to care about the 18 - 35 year old white-male demographic in the board rooms. Kids, racial minorities and particularly women are incredibly undeserved in the media. Don't believe me? Let me put it this way; if there was ANY sufficient material aimed at women and black people, neither Stephanie Myer or Tyler Perry would have a fucking job. Garbage like that only succeeds due to a tragic case of lowered-expectations.
So when something like Friendship is Magic comes along, and kicks the saccharine, superficial asses of the Barbie, Strawberry Shortcake bullshit marketed to younger girls, a show that seems to show that the creators give a shit about making something good, you're damn right I'm going to play the role of the bard and sing of it's praises, because this shit deserves to be seen and appreciated. And you better believe that when the other idiots start getting pissy, I'm going to defend it's honor from baseless slander.
Also, you people better shut the fuck up about the autism thing. My younger brother has autism and will likely live with my parents for his entire life, unless they put him in a home, since he's ENTIRELY non-verbal. Tread, the fuck, lightly.
Also, this guy will back me up on this point.
Yeah that video basically sums up any argument I could ever come up with.
But maybe it's time to give it a rest J-Dude, you're not exactly helping the cause.
But I think it's a great way to ween little girls off mediocre humor, to have less iCarlies, Rebecca Blacks or the next little girl fad. All in all a step in the right direction, not a major step, but a step indeed.
My consensus is:
Ponies should not die because that would lead to less 'slapstick' humor.
surprised to see people have said top shot
i love that show :(
and just about everything i would like to see be canceled has already been said many times, mainly my little pony, the simpsons and family guy.
My sweet super 16
The people featured on that show need to be left on an island overnight to be taught the value of everything they take for granted and the people who watch that show need to be taught that wealthy, materialistic primadonna's are not role models; they are fucking clowns.
So I watched that "Outrageous Kid Parties" show on TLC, where parents spend upwards of $30,000 on their kid's 6th birthday parties. These kids are fucking spoiled rotten and they admit it to the camera, the parents lie behind eachother's backs about the prices, and in one it was a fight between the mom (who wanted a Pirate party like her son asked for) and her evil step mom (who wanted a disco party because she's a retard, and had credit cards so she was paying for it)
The entire fucking time I was gritting my teeth thinking "fuckm these people are morons"
lol and then rate me dumb, can't wait for the long-winded explanation of why I am wrong and how I am "Sexually insecure"
Yeah, I haven't watched that shit, nor do I plan on doing so. It may not be as shitty as I think, but the audience and fanbase is what really kills it.
Because of them, I have seen more pony porn than one should ever see in a lifetime.
Okay for fuck sake just stop trying to act like Pony is intended for adults to watch and enjoy by themselves. It's fucking not. They sneak jokes for adults in their to entertain them while they watch the show with their little female children. Now stop watching it so religiously.
Also, J-Dude, the Game Overthinker video doesn't apply to this. These adults are watching a show targeted directly at little girls with jokes sneaked in for the parents of those little girls, not for grown men to watch alone for their entertainment. Kirby didn't have much of a target demographic, same with Mario. E-rated games are for pretty much anyone, however, Hello Kitty games are not for all audiences, and that's where the ponies come in. IT'S NOT FOR EVERYONE. IT IS FOR LITTLE GIRLS.
Grow up and get over it.
It's almost safe to say that this thread is going
You do realize "social interaction" includes online functions as well, right? And considering the community on this site alone involving MLP, they sure do have impaired social skills!
No, you are just like the other half of FP that thinks its cute to use Autism as an insult. Enjoy your bandwagon.
9 pages and you're still arguing over fucking ponies
why are people on facepunch arguing about FUCKING PONIES of all things
for NINE PAGES
The Sarah Connor Chronicles
I bet if MLP was My Little Grizzly Bears with the same style, no one would bag on it.
Everybear would be happy.
