why do grown men still play with toys? I get it if its just one or two, but a collection of ponies?
I just don't get the appeal anymore
I really don't care.
I mean if the guy likes playing with ponies why does it matter to me, it isn't harming anyone in anyway, I say let him enjoy his life. Why people spend so much of their time raging over such trivial shit is beyond me.
Seems TH89 got his cousin into it
He liked My Little Pony before "Friendship is Magic" apparently.
He's like a super brony.
I follow him and Deadmau5 both on Facebook and Twitter, so I was a bit confused logging in to both, and seeing these (The FB one is straightforward, but read the Twitter one from bottom to top).
We get it, men want to have sex with ponies
It's the same old song and dance every thread
if my illustration skills were decent I would've included a drawing, but now it looks like nobody understands my post and I'll be condemned to a fort made of boxes
It's a very strange juxtaposition I have to admit, him talking about ponies on his twitter with his bloody and violent album cover.
Andrew WK is a cool dude, his weekly streams bring up some interesting stories
like how at early cannibal corpse shows people used to put razor blades on their boots to try and cut peoples achilles tendons
he says ponies so oddly
maybe its just because i heard that word like 200 times in the last minute but it starts to sound like bonies or tonies
Andrew WK has a perfectly good reason for liking MLP. While I may not agree with it, it is still a valid point because he proves that he has been fascinated with those kinds of toys since a child (due to his lack of a relationship with real life animals). But for those of you in high-school, or those who just graduated high school, or even those in middle school; how many "bronys" do you see? At my high school (I am graduated), WAY TO FUCKING MANY. These kids who like MLP all seem to share common qualities. Example, they are all weird as fuck. All of this people you would say that you would NEVER communicate with before they exclaimed their like of MLP, now you want to stay even farther away from them because they like that show. They even go as far as to wear the shirts, key chains on their backpacks, and hats with MLP on them. Talk about social suicide. I tried to keep a neutral stand point on this issue, but I am disgusted with the way my school was. 16 and 17 year old BOYS flaunting around with apparel and merchandise from a show that makes you look like a complete pussy.
In response to the antisocial bandwagon bit, once again I ask why do you care? If those people are happy with what they're doing why be an asshole and insult them.
My point to you is why does this offend you, why does this harm you, I mean aside from thinking these people are ridiculous or look silly you don't actually have to communicate with them or anything, you could just you know, not care.
I think he's just taking the piss again, he really does like to stir shit up and watch the reactions.
Who cares, hes still a cool guy
Its not the cartoon. Its that people have some stupid ass urge to tell everyone, "I watch MLP".
Like you said, who gives a fuck. When you openly tell everyone that you like to watch a cartoon with a target audience of little girls, prepare to be made fun of. I mean, yes you can watch it with friends or whatever if you enjoy it, that's not a big deal honestly. But you don't go around announcing that you watch it.
Do you really have to go around being an asshole to people, it doesn't benefit you in anyway nor would your life drastically change if you knew or saw a couple of bronies.
I COULD NOT imagine explaining to my parents (or anybody) that I like this show. It seems like a guilty pleasure that you keep as secure as possible, as to not let anyone discover it. I think I would rather memorize interpretive dance and put on a show for my parents, rather than endure an episode of that show with them sitting with me as I watched it.
It's just a cliche, just like how I identify myself as an airsofter and PC gamer.
But my point is this shouldn't be something that disgusts you. Murders, warfare and famine are going on in other countries every day and yet it seems people are more focused on raging over a bunch of people liking a young girls TV Show.
Like I said though why does it matter, you know you don't like this show just like I do, you know you don't like bronies, so why bicker about it, them existing doesn't affect you, you could choose to ignore them at your leisure.
I don't think I'd hate mlp quite as much if I didn't hear about it so damn often.
It is the foremost of internet first world problems. Everyone has a strong opinion about it that they can't shut up about.
It is an undisputed fact that most of what we learn about social life, we learn about in high school. Whenever i am exposed to bronys for a good portion of my day, and then coming home to a website that I thought I could find some comfort in, and find out that it has been riddled with abject nonsense about MLP, then it has effected my life. While you may not have a MLP avatar, and you are also tame about keeping it yourself, I appreciate that.
I guess you could call it a first world problem, but I blame society's tolerance for the degree to which bronys are allowed to profess their fandom. Around the 80's is when having an obsession over something became more socially acceptable. I do not think that people who are a fan of anything should be condemned or persecuted, I just wish they would keep it to themselves.
