These bronies are disgusting.

I mean, having a plush of The Great and Powerful Trixie on your shoulder? If he was going to make the cape, he could have easily gone for Starswirl the Bearded and gotten some credit for being obscure.

Wow, that NSFW needs to be bigger. I'm glad I checked the URL first. Boss wouldn't have liked that.

The appeal of this show completely eludes me;in fact,it's downright creepy. Is it one of those "so-bad-it's-good" scenarios like those campy SyFy monster flicks?

Oh you know what, fark it. When I was a 6-7 year old girl I loved My Little Ponies. I had a pink one, a purple one, this white unicorn one, and some others, and my friends and I loved playing with them.

Of course, my ponies usually were involved in jockeying for power and influence in the pony kingdom. And also they would sometimes have pony birthday parties.

I'm not sure where I'm going with this. I guess I'm saying I understand their delight in something sweet and childish... and also, they're farking dweebs. Seriously.

Colorful plastic ponies were foretold by the mayan calendar.

"The Tzolkin describes the energies of the creation of My Little Pony moving through cycles within cycles, based on a 13:20 ratio that permeates the entire Mayan calendrical system."

You know what sucks about the new ponies? It's obvious that they just took the Powerpuff Girls' faces and slapped them on pony bodies. It's no coincidence that Lauren Faust worked on PPG and is married to Craig McCracken (PPG's creator). So all you "bronies" are being unwittingly duped: you love the show because your brain subconsciously thinks it's Powerpuff Girls.

The story was about a person with Asperger's Syndrome who was in a relationship with only a small reference to the show.

I can't find the article, but I do remember one about bronies that featured a 30-something sperg who said he'd learned more about friendship from that show than he had in the rest of his life.

Yeah...that doesn't exactly help your group of manchildren. Well, that's a bad term as "man" implies even a hint of masculinity.

People who feel the need to live up to some ideal of masculinity are usually the ones who are not men.

You're doing/did it wrong. I avoided MLP, Rainbow Brite, and Strawberry Shortcake in the 80's and watched She-Ra and Jem. Turned out totally straight.

Unsurprisingly, my friend that watched more He-Man than She-Ra ended up gay. NTTAWWT.

If Invader Zim had been sent to Cartoon Network instead of Nickelodeon it would still be on the air.
