If I ever had doubts about whether watching My Little Pony was a good thing or not, it has just been confirmed...

MY LITTLE PONY FARKING ROCKS!

/Anything that zombie farker Breitbart's group of sycophants and jerkoffs and dittoheads is against must be good.

Always double tap.

Also, troll writer couldn't find a picture of the current ponies to use?

And on top of that, it must be sad to have to live your life trying to live up to arbitrary standards of adulthood and manliness, which is basically all the article rants about.

Of course, the Breitbart farkers are a crowd that wishes it were 1950 again, and anything that didn't appear in Father Knows Best is a reason for them to lose their shiat.

Well, I've never watched an episode in my life, but it sounds like I have some catching up to do...

Wait, so the Breitbart staff is pissed off at MLP??

I know, the depths at which this guy is scared of his own homosexuality is oozing out of this article.

Damnit, do I really HAVE to start watching MLP? The things I do to piss off conservatives...I thought I would be done when I started performing abortions BUT NO!

The author of this article is being completely serious.

He honestly believes this phenomenon Means Something™ and is further proof of the Downfall of America™.

Think about that.

Argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of anything the other person says.

Normally I would agree, but how do you argue intellectually with someone who thinks men liking My Little Pony is an insult to the troops?

I remember reading about a soldier who got saved by a fluttershy brushable he would carry in one of his chest pockets. It apparently took a bullet for him.

Wish i could find the reddit thread on it.

Two groups are represented here. One is a group of men who live in a fantasy world and who should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.
The other likes a cartoon about talking ponies.

This guy refers to the poor soldiers who are forced to be in Afghanistan for no reason as "protecting us" and it's the "Bromies" who are the pussies?

I like the show, i wont deny it... It is actually refreshing to find a good show with really good writing, character development and great musical score... That its about pastel colored marshmallow ponies is secondary

That being said, as much as i am a fan of the show, i dont go around shoving it down other people's throats; if people show interest, i will recommend some good intro episodes, since the pilot is rather weak, but you will never see me going all "you must watch this show! YOU MUST!!"

Also, if you dont like the show, that is fine as well, just dont be a dick about it.

All the while, as these pathetic sissies giggle like school girls over magic unicorns that spray rainbows from their horns, real men - and women - who have put aside the temptation to retreat into a frivolous fantasy world are tromping through the wilds of Afghanistan.

[snort] Sure thing, precious. I'm glad the idiots of America have found a place where they can say what they really think in full unfiltered idiocy.

Yeah, some will say it's unfair to compare a bunch of harmless fem-boys who stopped maturing at age seven with the heroic men and women facing death or dismemberment on all our behalves every day. People who say that are wrong. These perma-virgins ought to be ashamed of themselves, but if they had the capacity for shame, this disgusting obsession would be a secret they guard almost as closely as a Harvard faculty member might guard the fact that he's a registered Republican.

I know several gay men that enjoy the show, my boyfriend and myself included, so your point is a bit hallow. The last thing you can call us is virgins. And guess what, the fem-boys are openly fighting in the military now too. Your last remaining beacon of imagined moral perfection is crumbling to reveal its true form: military folks can be just like everybody else.

Hollywood is famously nonjudgmental about anything that happens to undercut the foundations of American society, gleefully mocking traditional morality, conservatism, and now what the LA Times calls "tired stereotypes of what boys should or shouldn't like." Trashing positive values is standard operating procedure in Tinseltown.

But perhaps now it's time for Hollywood to get a bit more judgmental. Perhaps it's time to say, "Hey, glad you like the show, but it's for little girls and maybe you man-children ought to find something better to do with your lives. Which would be anything."


It's called the free market. They're trying to make money. That's it. There's no ulterior motive you sanctimonious buffoon.

He died after watching an episode, his small heart could not contain that much love and tolerance, and exploded as a result.

S'okay. It's not for everybody. I personally have a taste for well-written cartoons, even if they are geared for the younger crowd. "Fairly Oddparents" is another great example.


//doesn't feel the need to write a diatribe about it either

That stands to reason. This isn't a Cowboys thread.

A story like "Lord of the Rings" may be a bit nerdy - I mean, it has elves - but the lessons there, about the need to overcome one's fears and to sacrifice one's self if need be to defend your people, are as vital as ever.

Yes, because MLP:FiM never has any lessons in it whatsoever...

Seriously though, who the hell watches LotR for the lessons? The whole point of every episode of MLP:FiM IS a lesson.

As sickening as it is, we can't just ban grown men from acting like idiots because we disapprove of their lifestyle choices - after all, we aren't progressives.

This comment made me laugh out loud. Cognitive dissonance at its finest.
