Holy crap, Andrew W.K. is going to be there. That makes sense, seeing as how he and his wife are probably the only human beings who could keep up with the party animal that is Pinkie Pie.

The Furry Convention is this week in Pittsburgh. Frankly, a MLP convention would be a sane break in comparison.

This is likely the case. Just like GIFT indicates that anonymity+audience=farkwad, it's probably more indicative that anonymity+audience=outlet for unfiltered impulses. It's also the modern equivalent of pre-internet "special interest groups" that would meet for whatever nutty fanbase was out there. It's just that now it's real-time and ubiquitous instead of "every other Tuesday at Mildred's house, bring a casserole or dessert to share."

Imagine what the original "Star Trek" would have done to the internet had they been contemporary. This is nothing new -- it's just easier to see, and easier to find an audience (willing or otherwise) for your own unfiltered impulses.

ITT:

People who like MLP say why they like it and defend the show to their graves.

People who don't like MLP sit back and berate people who harmlessly enjoy a show for children.

Exacerbate original issues as needed to appropriately reflect tone of thread. Regardless, they all play out the same.

In the end if you don't like it, who cares? It's not your life and it doesn't affect you in any way shape or form. Roll your eyes all you want, and move on with your life. I wear pony shiat, and guess what? My wife thinks it's hysterical. I've never been hit on by women so much in my life(true story). People who biatch about it are merely proving why I'm not friends with them(no sense of humor.). And my friends get a damn good laugh out of it. Mission accomplished in my book.

There is nothing inherently masculine about liking a show for girls. Likewise there is no way in which not liking it makes you more masculine. Get over yourselves, accept that other people like shiat you don't and vice versa. And move on with your life. Seriously, let people have their harmless fun for god sake.

I would actually argue that liking Twilight is worse than being a Brony. At least most people laugh at the whole Brony thing(except the horrifyingly insecure, who do everything they can to try and put an end to it). Twilight is just a poorly written wanna be harlequin romance novel. How that tripe became popular is beyond me. But guess what? I hate it, yet will never belittle someone for enjoying it. If that's what floats your boat, cool. Enjoy it till the ship sinks.

The image macro is easy to explain: neither Harry Potter nor Narnia were written primarily for visual media. Both have had movies since then, but the books remain the big thing, and it's tough to make an image macro or user image out of a book. People try with the movies, but not to the same degree.

You would think so. Trust me, this is not the case. I've actually asked a few women what it is about the pony stuff that's doing it for them. From what I was told, they see it as a sign of open-mindedness and a great sense of humor. It tends to attract women who are.. I don't know. attracted to the anti-bro?

It's an odd dynamic, and I recommend trying it sometime. I'm the only guy I know irl who's willing to wear my little pony shirts in public(I'm married, so it's not like I'm trying to impress tha biatches ya know?), so I'm actually interested to see if anyone gets the same results.

Also, and I know I've said this before, My Little Pony shiat makes people go bananas in clubs. Between the shirts, and MLP themed songs(like pony swag) that I've dropped in sets, people love this shiat. It's all in how you wear it/view it yourself. If it's a source of humor to you, it's a source of humor to those around you. Projection is a powerful tool.

The original Twilight novel was, and is, intended for a young adult audience. It was a tween love story more or less. Once the popularity of the initial novel exploded beyond it's targeted demo, the stories got racier.

In central Kentucky there is a anime group that gets together once a month to play video games and watch anime. It usually ends up being about ponies at some point. There are worse things in the world to like or be obsessed over (pedos, Lil Wayne), so being a brony isn't that bad of a thing.

Video game nerds are far more grating. The nerdrage at differing opinions of 1) console choice, 2) PC vs. console, 3) playing styles, 4) genre, 5) everything... is mind-boggling. Heaven forbid you say you like Zelda games, because you'll get a hundred people raining a shiatstorm on your head for 1) playing on a Wii, 2) not playing on a PC, 3) not being a "real" gamer, 4) liking stupid kiddy games, 5) etc.

Yes, you've totally figured me out. I am such a brony. Why, in the past year alone I must have seen two episodes of the show. Sorry, but the show doesn't really "do it" for me. However, that doesn't mean that I am unable to understand that some people really enjoy it. To get all butthurt because other people like a show that you don't is, well, stupid.

I know this may come as a horrifying shock to you, but there will be people out there that not only like things you don't like, they will enthusiastically like those things and in their enthusiasm, will show the world that they like them. You getting mad at their enjoyment just makes you come off like a dour cock-mole who wants the world to conform to their personal idea of what's "good" or "fun." Get over yourself and just accept that a shiat-ton of people like things you don't and will tell you about those things. It's called being part of a society. Don't like it?

I wouldn't doubt that. There's a fine line between hilarious, and disturbingly uncomfortable. It all boils down to how you carry it. For me, it's more than obvious I'm wearing it for laughs. Hell, moms comprise half the women who have hit on me for wearing MLP stuff.

I know this may come as a horrifying shock to you, but there will be people out there that not only like things you don't like, they will enthusiastically like those things and in their enthusiasm, will show the world that they like them. You getting mad at their enjoyment just makes you come off like a dour cock-mole who wants the world to conform to their personal idea of what's "good" or "fun." Get over yourself and just accept that a shiat-ton of people like things you don't and will tell you about those things. It's called being part of a society. Don't like it? Go live alone in the woods.


I believe most of the butthurt has nothing to do with "stop liking what I don't like". It has to do with how infantile so many people are. And watching shows originally targeted at the 5- to 11-year-old demographic is just accelerating the trend.

Funny. She didn't do that at ECCC this year.

/you're mad
//why?


I'm not mad at Tara Strong. She's an accomplished voice actress with more vocal credits than... hell, 95% of the business. She happens to fill a vocal niche that, experienced over a PA (or even in headphones, really) is a soldering iron in my brain. YMMV.

No, seriously, the sound of babies screaming hits a little reboot button in my brain. Completely erases whatever I was thinking about. This may be a problem at some point in the future.

How about hitting up a Shakespeare performance at your local college, or joining a book club that doesn't read soft-core porn? Maybe take a parks & recreation course in flower arranging, or plant a community garden. Learn to bake something new and distribute samples to your neighbors or your office-mates. Hell, just rent the DVD set for The Prisoner or get a bunch of Hitchcock films.

Which is funny, because the show you're claiming is immature actually encourages the viewer to do exactly what you're suggesting. Take in culture, expand their own artistic mind, and actually be a part of things. In all honesty I think that's a major factor as to why it's become so popular. It's one of the only shows around that promotes decent values while being exceedingly well written for a kids show, and being perfect fodder for your next acid trip.

Now THAT'S really setting the bar high.

Video game nerds are far more grating. The nerdrage at differing opinions of 1) console choice, 2) PC vs. console, 3) playing styles, 4) genre, 5) everything... is mind-boggling. Heaven forbid you say you like Zelda games, because you'll get a hundred people raining a shiatstorm on your head for 1) playing on a Wii, 2) not playing on a PC, 3) not being a "real" gamer, 4) liking stupid kiddy games, 5) etc.

I simply watch an entertaining show with my kids (that also puts out the message to be NICE TO EACH OTHER) and find most of the picture memes about the show to be hilarious.

I enjoy cartoons meant for kids, cartoons meant for adults (anime) and I enjoy West Wing, The Wire, Game of Thrones, etc. I simply get different kinds of enjoyment from each.

I miss cartoons like Animaniacs and Rocko's Modern Life for sheer innuendo potential. Jokes like "Finger Prince" and "Chokey Chicken" are hillarious examples of getting crap past the censors.

MLP manages to do it, but with a lot of fridge logic and subtlety.. A great example of this would be "saddles". There would be no reason for a pony to have saddles, except as a rather adult thing. Jabs about "not wearing clothes" and the like.

While I can understand lumping bronies with furries, or as a subculture of furries, what in the name of Celestia would make you think they're anything compared to some white-trash idiot who masturbates over a band who can't even understand basic magnetism?

Or for that matter, a paraphilic sub-culture with deeply rooted psychological issues?

/no. really. Explain your logic on this one.


Is Celestia an anti-depressant?

1) As 80-85% of Juggalos are convicted sex offenders, it seems only logical to lump them in the same category as these two deviants.

2) Does this one really need explaining? I'm sure there are some way cool retro My Little Pony and Strawberry Shortcake and Rainbow Brite diaperbags from the 80's out there on ebay that would be of interest for this unholy roadtrip.

The My Little Pony Killer: redmond24: WHY the fark are adults obsessing over this shiat? There are GOOD shows out there on the 600 other channels.

Yeah, but have you ever seen a GOOD show directed at young girls like this? Like it or not, MLP:FiM is groundbreaking.


Powerpuff Girls. Adventures of Billy and Mandy. I haven't seen Legend of Korra yet, but it looks promising. Even the two main female characters on Adventure Time do plenty of service towards the ladies. One is a badass, rock and roll vampire and the other is a genius scientist.

I don't know about groundbreaking. It's fine to like a show, but I don't get the MLP love. It's much better than the old MLP show, so I'll give you guys that. I watched the first 10-20 episodes trying to figure out what the appeal was, but I just found it boring. Adventure Time, for instance, is full of nerd humor and innuendo, and is much more cleverly written IMO. Regular Show is hilarious, especially if you're a child of the eighties. RS surprises me with what they get past the censors sometimes. Flapjack was another in a similar vein, before it went off the air.

There's been plenty of great Western animation that appeals to both kids and adults. The same values and message of "love and tolerance" can still be found in most of them too. I think this MLP thing blew up as more of a gathering, a nerd community, and that's where you guys are at now. Maybe it started as a joke, maybe not... but I dunno. I just don't think the show is good enough for all the attention it's getting.

By the way, while this is wrong, my heart goes out to pedophiles who don't touch kids (or kiddy porn). That's remarkable self-control in the face of cruel [nature|nurture].

As with everything, I enjoy the property itself while ignoring the fanbase.

I love Star Trek. I love (most of) Star Wars. I love Gargoyles. I love Firefly. I love both Avatar series.

And yes, I have come to accept the fact that I enjoy My Little Pony. I don't think it's the greatest show ever, nor do I issue proclamations of how people who don't like it are somehow wrong. I just find it charming, funny, and most importantly, genuinely sincere (which is probably the rarest element in any modern fictional media). I also fully understand why many people don't care for it, and that's fine, too.

Despite all of that, I feel no need to aggressively demonstrate these feelings at every opportunity to anyone that will listen. That absolutely pushy element of all fanbases is what drives me away from them. Just because I like something doesn't mean that I've agreed to join a club of people that happen to like the same thing.

I'm no Brony, nor a Trekkie, nor a Browncoat. I'm just a dude who enjoys things for the sake of enjoying them, not to become part of some movement with a social statement.

Buddy, there's Rule 34 for everything. The fact that you can dig up pervy pix of ponies doesn't say jack about the general culture. The majority of fans don't want anything to do with that crap and get tired of the constant attempts to associate us with it.

Some furries are bronies, but most bronies aren't furries. If you can't hold that difference in your mind, I'd suggest a remedial logic course.

If you look at people enjoying a show and automatically think they're probably sexually attracted to one of the target audiences of the show, that's a pretty good indication that there's something seriously wrong with how your brain works.

By your logic, male fans of Sex in the City are sexually attracted to women, while men who like Top Gear are turned on by other men.

Because we find it "very funny", "more than a bit of" and "really good story lines".

I'm also puzzled how liking MLP prevents me from watching Game of Thrones and Community. If you want to biatch about people watching crap, how about the fact that 90% of what's on those 600 channels is reality TV dreck? Does it really bother you that some of us are investing 22 minutes to watch a fun show like this instead of blowing 2 hours on America's Got Voice Idol?

Seriously.

It's about sex. That's what creeps me out. It's about relating to younger chicks over a show aimed at them. If you can't impress a girl with your body or money, then you can at least giggle about MLP with them and TOTALLY LOVE THEIR T-SHIRT! OMG!!!

And that's what makes it seem sort of pathetic it me. I watched to see what the hype was about, and the show isn't even 1/32 as interesting, hip, funny, or clever as the worst episode of The Venture Bros.... So I put 2+2 together and got "girl magnet".

FrancoFile: Funny, but I'm about as far from a hipster as you can get. I want everyone to read the book, and I don't get pissed off when they do.


I agree that you aren't a hipster. You are, instead, one of those very annoying people who thinks that being an intellectual means that you must eschew anything that doesn't meet your personal standards of intellectual growth.

It's analogous to the foodie who assumes that anyone who ever goes to Chipotle must have never experienced the delights of four-star dining. It's annoying, condescending, wrong-headed, and about three shades away from the guy who brags that he doesn't have a TV and who thinks that that fact alone means that he's raised his IQ by 20 points.

You really don't need to be that guy. Take stock and try to be more open-minded about other people's entertainments because that, too, counts as intellectual development.

^ What this guy/gal said.

Hey, I'm a huge TMNT nerd still, well into my thirties. I love it, I'll chat about it with like-minded people, or dip into a forum devoted to the fandom occasionally, depending on what's in the news. What I don't do is spam the crap out of any and every site with images of my favorite fandom. When you start cramming it down the throats of people who don't care for it, you become a creeper. And I'm sorry for you legitimately polite Bronies out there, but a huge part of your fanbase is coming off really creepy.

That said, enjoy your pony threads and forums. I won't bother you. I wouldn't mind seeing a little less of your obsession in every corner of the internet, though.

So what is the definition of "Brony" to non fans is what I want to know.

I consider a "Brony" to be someone who goes beyond enjoying the cartoon into "I will go to a MLP convention" territory.

I think most people anti this whole thing thinks anyone who says they like the show=Brony.

I find the show to be good. Its pleasant and suggests people should be nice to each other. I watch it with my kids. The only time I can think of watching the show on my own was a week ago when my wife and daughter left the house during the middle of a 2 part episode. I decided to finish watching on my own.

I like the memes. A few YouTube videos are funny. Why that scares people, I'll never understand.
 
2012-06-13 05:45:14 PM

ZeroCorpse: the show isn't even 1/32 as interesting, hip, funny, or clever as the worst episode of The Venture Bros.


That's certainly true.

My Little Pony is written primarily for 8 year old girls to be able to watch. No booze humor, bloody murder, out and out pathetic failures like the Monarch, and cetainly no sex.

But what it is, and this is the secret, is well made. The story lines aren't exactly Rashomon levels of complexity, but they're not bad for simple 22 minute episodes. The art is great. It's made 100 times better than almost anything mass produced that's been slapped up on TV recently. I mean, it looks better than Samurai Jack and the Power Puff Girls. That's saying something.

It's just a good cartoon. The brony thing happened because people like conventions and they were being mocked by people like you, who have no idea what you're babbling about because you're expecting something instead of taking in what's there. It's just a good show.

And, unlike Venture Bros, it's not painfully hand animated by one guy in a shed or some shiat like that. It's straight up corporate so they can kick up the juice to 11 and crank out the shows nearly as fast as the voice actors can record them.

The art's unique, the stories are good (if clean), and there's quite a lot of episodes in just two years. That's a recipe for success. Then the fan community is actually supported by Hasboro. They've named half the characters on the show. Hell, one tiny editing mistake has turned into the the most common character in the show:

i1.kym-cdn.com


It's just a unique show. Like John de Lance said about the brony thing: "If you could bottle what makes a show successful and sell it, every show would do it."

I'm about where you are, but I call myself a Brony, mainly because I feel that the fan community gets dumped on for things above and beyond the usual things that fans get called out for.

If they just got the same level of shiat as the Trekkers (or whatever the hell they're calling themselves these days), I'd say that's just the perils of being a fan, but it always seems to go way beyond that, often into a creepy, misogynistic zone where it's just assumed that liking things that are feminine is somehow a fundamental moral wrong, which invariably leads to all the bizzaro-land accusations of pedophilia and beastiality.

When a community of people who like something that's perfectly innocent and positive receives that kind of mindless hostility, something inside of me make me want to stand with them in solidarity. That's especially true when the vast majority of that fan community are really nice and creative people who don't seem to succumb to most of the usually squabbling and in-fighting that so-often makes those groups such a huge drag to be part of.

So, yeah, I call myself a brony and I'm perfectly proud to associate myself with the rest of them, even though I'm not a con-goer and have no interest in cosplay, fanfic, or most of the typical trappings of fandom.

I like the show... honestly and without a hint of irony.

It´s well written, the characters are memorable and well rounded (IMO), there is great deal of humor that works on different levels.

Overall, it´s a well made family show.

If you don´t like it or don´t see the appeal, that´s fine... it´s not for you and it´s OK...

It´s the need to antagonize and insult that it´s irking.

IMO, it´s no different than being a sports fan. Most are cool, but the assholes and creeps are there...

ZeroCorpse: Seriously. I keep seeing "bronies" talking about how girls flirt with them, how it impresses the chicks, how it is popular when they go to clubs/cons/etc. -- It's all about making it seem like you have something in common with girls that are normally out of range, too young, or too stupid for the likes of you.

It's about sex. That's what creeps me out. It's about relating to younger chicks over a show aimed at them. If you can't impress a girl with your body or money, then you can at least giggle about MLP with them and TOTALLY LOVE THEIR T-SHIRT! OMG!!!


And here's the catch-22 in play.

It starts out with an accusation that we're all pathetic virgins who will never touch a boob or feel the inside of a vagina. So, naturally enough, a few people will post rebuttals saying that they do have girlfriends and that some of them have found that their love of MLP has helped them find women.

So then we spin it around 180 degrees and say, "OMG, it's all about sex with you people! What a bunch of creepers!"

There's really no winning with you people, is there?

The truth is you've already decided that it's "creepy", mainly because you just can't wrap your head around the idea that some people see value in the show in and of itself, so you go out of your way to rationalize your feeling that it's "creepy" by looking for any signs that there might be something sexual going on.

Queue selective sampling, and Bob's your uncle. Your extremely creepy uncle that lives entirely in your own imagination.

I could tell you that I'm married, that I like watching the show with my wife (and that, no, we don't farking cosplay in the bedroom, thank you very much), and that I've never been remotely interested in dating anyone more than five years my junior, but I already know that I'm wasting precious electrons just replying to you.

All I can say is that I really hope that one day you'll have an epiphany that it's never good to project your assumptions on to other people that you don't know, and that there's a reason that stereotyping is always at the root of intolerance.

demonsweat: Strolpol: As with everything, I enjoy the property itself while ignoring the fanbase.

I love Star Trek. I love (most of) Star Wars. I love Gargoyles. I love Firefly. I love both Avatar series.

And yes, I have come to accept the fact that I enjoy My Little Pony. I don't think it's the greatest show ever, nor do I issue proclamations of how people who don't like it are somehow wrong. I just find it charming, funny, and most importantly, genuinely sincere (which is probably the rarest element in any modern fictional media). I also fully understand why many people don't care for it, and that's fine, too.

Despite all of that, I feel no need to aggressively demonstrate these feelings at every opportunity to anyone that will listen. That absolutely pushy element of all fanbases is what drives me away from them. Just because I like something doesn't mean that I've agreed to join a club of people that happen to like the same thing.

I'm no Brony, nor a Trekkie, nor a Browncoat. I'm just a dude who enjoys things for the sake of enjoying them, not to become part of some movement with a social statement.


^ What this guy/gal said.

Hey, I'm a huge TMNT nerd still, well into my thirties. I love it, I'll chat about it with like-minded people, or dip into a forum devoted to the fandom occasionally, depending on what's in the news. What I don't do is spam the crap out of any and every site with images of my favorite fandom. When you start cramming it down the throats of people who don't care for it, you become a creeper. And I'm sorry for you legitimately polite Bronies out there, but a huge part of your fanbase is coming off really creepy.

That said, enjoy your pony threads and forums. I won't bother you. I wouldn't mind seeing a little less of your obsession in every corner of the internet, though.

/ loved me some Gargoyles too


Heh, I loved TMNT as a little kid and downloaded the whole show a while back. It...hasn't really aged well. It's still amusing (and there were some fourth wall/inside jokes throughout), but most of it is just cheesy bad, albeit in sorta-kinda a good way. The first movie, however, was a surprisingly good flick and has held up well over the years.

You're the one who bases someone's worth on what television shows they like and I'm pathetic? Yeah, right.

As for your "men have become women" comment, it sounds like you have some serious sexual identity issues if you think what shows a person likes defines their gender. Maybe you should take some basic biology courses to get a better idea of what does actually define gender.

Oh, and for the record, I'm not a "brony". As I stated upthread, I've seen about two episodes of the show and it didn't really pique my interest. Feel free to make your stupid assumptions though, it's entertaining to see someone so out of touch with reality on something other than the Politics tab.

I'm with ya on the cartoon. Loved it as a kid, but now? Yeah. Can't see myself watching it other than for nostalgic reasons.

The comics still hold up though. IDW just started up with a brand new series a few months ago and I'm digging that. The movies are rad, too. Jeez, I must've seen the first one a few dozen times by now.

Never seen the show, so I can't comment on its quality. I don't think liking a show that you are not the target audience of is strange. I do think that parading around in a handmade MLP hat is a little odd, but it doesn't hurt me at all.

I would think it was strange if people were carrying around a Breaking Bad camper/lab too. Oh, and some of those MLP pictures are hilarious.

Seriously, there were no kids in the theater when I went and saw Ironman.

But does anyone accuse comic book fans of being pedos? Nope.

And, lest we forget, The Hobbit was a kid's book!

Liking something kids like, being a fan of a well written cartoon, does NOT mean someone wants to boink children. What a friggin retarded argument.

to be fair, one of the major things pedophiles do is take obsessive interests in the things children like. Now if an adult is obsessed with something from their own youth and have been since they were young (say bugs bunny or disney or something) that makes sense. they're simply fixating on something from their past. but when a population of adult men suddenly become obsessed (and we're talking true obsession here, not just ironic liking of something to be "hip") with something that is designed to appeal to children of the opposite sex, that is on its face quite creepy, because that behavior has been previously associated almost completely with unsavory motives or mental distress .

and then sprinkle into that an inability to really express why it inspires obession, and it makes it even odder. Some people seem to go the creepy "oh, chicks dig it man, more chicks hit on me when i wear my pony stuff than ever before!" A lot of apparent adult men give some version of "well, its exceptionally well done for a childrens show aimed at girls and you have to admire that" (great, so you watch a lot of shows for female children? thats not helping your argument much...) And frankly, most of the reasons given for liking it that are just normal are very perplexing when you look at the obsession it spawns.

Yes, a reasonably funny, reasonably well made show with decent animation and good life lessons is nice. And yes, i enjoyed rocco's modern life and animaniacs when i was a lad, and still find the clips i run across as pretty amusing. But this pony show inspires obsession that includes traveling distances to go to conventions, buying clothing and toys intended for female children, having meet-ups and flooding unrelated discussions, forums, video games, etc, etc with pictures, quotes, storylines. I mean, devotion to a show they described as only "pretty good" has led them to adopt the name "bronies." you didn't see 28 year old men descending on arena's in the 1990's to celebrate their enjoyment of "Strawberrying with the Shortcake."

And Hitler painted roses, so artists are automatically suspect of being Nazis. I really don't need to point out the gaps in that logic, do I?

Now if an adult is obsessed with something from their own youth and have been since they were young (say bugs bunny or disney or something) that makes sense. they're simply fixating on something from their past. but when a population of adult men suddenly become obsessed (and we're talking true obsession here, not just ironic liking of something to be "hip") with something that is designed to appeal to children of the opposite sex, that is on its face quite creepy, because that behavior has been previously associated almost completely with unsavory motives or mental distress .

Look, I understand the knee-jerk reaction. But don't you think that it's a good idea to actually talk to the people in question before you start lobbing accusations? Instead of telling us that we like it because we want to diddle kids and/or horses (or, god forbid, underage horses), could you at least ask us why we like the show?

and then sprinkle into that an inability to really express why it inspires obession, and it makes it even odder.

I think that if you bother to ask, you'll find plenty of people who can articulate their reasons. Just don't use a sneering or accusatory tone when you do it, otherwise basic human nature says that you'll get defensive replies, which will just feed into your own biases (which is, to be fair, also human nature).

Some people seem to go the creepy "oh, chicks dig it man, more chicks hit on me when i wear my pony stuff than ever before!"

Some being the operative word. And, honestly, do you really think that it's that weird that people who like a given thing might be on the lookout for other people who share those interests? Have you even been to a convention of any variety. And I'm not just talking science fiction cons. If you go to stamp collecting conventions, you'll find people looking for hookups. Far from being weird, that's just typical behavior for H. sap. We are always on the lookout for people who share a common bond with us. The alternative would be, IMO, kind of hellish.

A lot of apparent adult men give some version of "well, its exceptionally well done for a childrens show aimed at girls and you have to admire that" (great, so you watch a lot of shows for female children? thats not helping your argument much...) And frankly, most of the reasons given for liking it that are just normal are very perplexing when you look at the obsession it spawns.

Alright. You know what, here I am. If you promise to listen to my reasons, I'll be happy to articulate them for you. All I ask is that you treat me with a basic amount of respect, and that you really consider what I have to tell you.

Is that fair, or are you bound and determined to stick with the "y'all are creepy" conclusion?

That is never going away no matter what you say. You picked a creepy hobby and there is no changing that. Learn to deal with it because it isn't going away.

Pedophilia is a creepy hobby, but you don't see us insulting you in every pedo thread.

You guys are huge fans of a show directed at pre-teen girls. And you are trying to call me a pedo? Projection.


Methinks the lady doth protest too much.


Someone needs a party to turn that frown upsidedown. That or just to stop hanging out in threads about shiat they don't like. Seriously, there's more than 7,000,000 other threads on fark.com. You're here whining. What a sad creature you are.

I like my little pony. A lot. I also like game of thrones, Buddhist philisophical treatises, and ice hockey games. It's just a cartoon dude.

And for the record, I would go to a "brony" convention to meet Tara Strong, Lauren Faust, Tabitha St Germain, John de Lance, and the rest I can't name off the top of my head because all of them are seasoned animators and actors who've been in a LOT of shows I've enjoyed.

Please, we've been over this before. If you think liking a show automatically makes the fans of the show sexually attracted to its target audience, then you've failed basic logic. Let's apply your stellar thinking to other shows, shall we?

If you like:
Top Gear
The Playboy Club
Deadliest Catch
Terra Nova

Then you're obviously attracted to men in their mid twenties to mid thirties.

On the other hand, if you like:
Sex in the City
The View
America's Next Top Model
Toddlers and Tiaras

Then you're obviously attracted to women in their mid twenties to mid thirties.

Makes perfect sense, right?

Actually, my really obscure references are nearly ungooglable.

Ponies are a boom now. There's books from before I loved to bits as a kid whose authors passed away or moved on to other work and now have no online presence.

I dont know about others but I usually contain my references to threads relevant to ponies, have the word pony OR football threads, and more often than not, only when others have done it first.

I know it can be grating, which is why I limit myself -- however, this being an actual pony thread, there's no point in me holding back, right?

I think ringshadow's point refers to the Silver Age of Comic Books. You know, the one where Superman has silly adventures with Jimmy Olsen and is a dick towards Louis Lane (or Louis Lane is a dick towards Superman, it would vary depending depending on the issue)

I'm sure someone will be along with the C.S. Lewis quote to the contrary in just a bit.

In the meanwhile, I'd say that we've grown to put less weight on artificial divisions between adult and juvenile pastimes. When I went to see Star Wars back in 1977, it was definitely considered a kid's movie (and that's certainly how Lucas saw it). The only respectable way for adults to see it was if they went with their families. Back then, there was this strong notion that once you hit puberty, you were supposed to stop liking them (even if you still secretly thought that the Road Runner cartoons were awesome), because it wasn't "serious".

Adults were only supposed to like "serious" things. It's important to note that this was all part and parcel of the post-50's nuclear family ethos where every person's responsibility was to grow up and be a productive member of society, which meant working 9-5, raising 2.5 kids, and smoking cigs to relax. To be sure, this was the mid-70's, so all those institutions were already in the process of crumbling, but the strict divisions between adult and juvie entertainment were still pretty strict.

I don't think that it's much of an exaggeration to say that it was largely because of Star Wars that my generation said fark that noise. As we got older, we didn't stop liking Star Wars, we just learned to appreciate it in different ways than we did as a kid. We came to realize that one of the advantages of being an adult is that you can look at the things that you liked as a kid and see it from a different angle that exposes all the good qualities while adding layers of nuance that you weren't able to see, before.

I'm proud of the fact that my generation, and the geeks, in particular, were able to realize that Art is Art and that limiting your enjoyment to things that have specific labels like "adult" or "juvenile" is a perfect way to blind yourself to a huge amount of good and worthwhile things.

You say that we've regressed because of this. I would call it progress, and I'll take it over that ancient John Wayne bullshiat any day of the week.

Amen. My father died in a hovel from cigarettes and booze trying to dream up new real estate schemes like the ones that worked for him in the '70s. My stepfather was a joyless, anal-retentive drone who did nothing but work, consume religious nonsense peddled by huckster preachers, and worry over the smallest details of his house.

If that's what being an adult is, i want none of it.

Also, it doesn't make much sense to abandon things we enjoy throughout our lives just because some other person(s) decide that we shouldn't like them any more. Nor does it make sense to avoid finding new things to enjoy, for the same reason.

that's not a fair comparison. pedophiles use their obsession with childrens interests as a way to lure children in. there is a causal relationship between pedophilia and childrens shows/books/movies. there is only a correlational relationship in your example. People who don't share an obsession naturally have a hard time understanding it in others, and i realize its not pleasant to admit your obsession also happens to be classic pedophile behavior, but if you understand it, it might help you understand some of why people react so negatively.

Indeed. And the thing of it is, there are lots of things that I like that have nothing juvenile about them. My favorite movie is probably "Synecdoche, New York", I tend to gravitate towards stories with downer endings (go see Oldboy if you ever feel the need to give up hope for human decency), and I'm a semi-serious wine snob in my spare time, just to give a few examples.

There are plenty of things in my life that fit snugly into the "adult" bin of life. The fact that I also happen to like a show with pastel colored talking ponies doesn't somehow negate all of those things, and I just don't understand the logic that says that it does.

I get so confused reading these threads. Now, is MLP made specifically for adults or children or both? Are the adults finding "adult" themes to pick out of the episodes to justify them watching? When I watched G.I. Joe as a 10 year old, one could easily pick out adult themes with the violence, terrorism, romance, etc. My dad, or mom, never sat down and watched them with me and they never, ever would watch G.I. Joe on their own. Not one of my friends parents would watch cartoons without their children. So, what changed from 1984 to 2012?

I will never watch MLP. There is no way someone could tell me that a cartoon (possibly made for little girls) has more meaning and impact than an episode of G.I. Joe did 20 years ago that would appeal to an adult male. What changed?

I responded before to one of the numerous MLP threads and continue to be confused by the whole thing. It reminds me of adults actually arguing about the Nintendo Wii, a system obviously made with children in mind. Why is it so hard for people to grow up these days? Again, did ANYONE in this thread have their dad say to them when they were a child "Can't take you to baseball practice now son, Strawberry Shortcake is on the tube and they're really getting into something crazy." It DIDN'T HAPPEN. Why does it happen now?

Because people are starting to realize that simply enjoying something because you like it is not a bad thing. As a society we're looking at some of the rigid, traditional attitudes about what is "proper" and realize they're outdated bullshiat.

It's like the people who have a very regimented idea of what foods are "acceptable" to eat at certain times of the day. Eggs, pancakes, waffles, biscuits, these are "breakfast" foods and should only be eaten in the morning as your first meal of the day. There's nothing about those foods that inherently makes them better as food sources in the morning. Your day is not going to be worse because you had a ham sandwich for breakfast instead of a couple of eggs and bacon. But there are people out there who take it very seriously. Hell, many restaurants won't serve you anything in the morning that's not on their "breakfast" menu, and won't serve you anything from their breakfast menu if it's not the morning. But it's an outdated concept that only exists as a societal creation. Sure, there are going to be some people who think you're weird for having a slice of pizza for breakfast, but here's the thing: the problem is not with you, it's with them. The problem is with their inflexible outlook on life that makes anything that differs from the norm become something to be feared and ridiculed.

The recent increase of adults enjoying "kids" shows, books, games, toys, etc is just the result of a bunch of people waking up and realizing that they are responsible for their own happiness. It's not up to society to make them happy, it's not up to their friends, or family, or employer, or anyone else. So, if they like an animated show about ponies, or playing a game system "designed for kids", or reading a book aimed at adolescents, they know that it's OK, because that's what helps them make their own happiness.

tlchwi02: Some 'Splainin' To Do: And Hitler painted roses, so artists are automatically suspect of being Nazis. I really don't need to point out the gaps in that logic, do I?

that's not a fair comparison. pedophiles use their obsession with childrens interests as a way to lure children in. there is a causal relationship between pedophilia and childrens shows/books/movies. there is only a correlational relationship in your example. People who don't share an obsession naturally have a hard time understanding it in others, and i realize its not pleasant to admit your obsession also happens to be classic pedophile behavior, but if you understand it, it might help you understand some of why people react so negatively.


Well, Fark apparently decided to eat the Weeners that I posted, so I'll try (and probably fail) to be brief.

First of all, unless you can point out a causal relationship between pedophilia and being a Brony, you're still engaging in the same fallacy. If you can do that, please show your work, otherwise, speaking as someone who has actually helped put away a real life pedophile for good, can you please drop that inference because its a farking ugly slur that hits me in a personal place and every time you say that, it makes me want to punch something. So please, be a decent human being, and stop, already.

And as I said before, I do understand the knee-jerk reaction. People see colorful ponies and go WTF. I get that, I really do. But, at the same time, I don't have much respect for people who don't try to get beyond their knee-jerk reactions to get at the underlying reasons. I especially don't like people who judge others without hearing what they have to say about themselves first. Which is why I'm trying to give you an opportunity to really understand us.

I'm willing to articulate why I like the show to you. I offer this in perfectly good faith. But, at the same time, I don't want to waste my time if you've already made up your mind about us. If there's no way that I can't convince you that we aren't scheming to sneak our snausages into kiddies, then I can do without the aggravation of trying. So I need you to promise me that you'll listen and genuinely consider my case.

Otherwise, I'll be sorry that you feel that way, but I'll stop trying to change your mind and we can each go our separate ways.

So what'll it be?

broktune: I get so confused reading these threads. Now, is MLP made specifically for adults or children or both? Are the adults finding "adult" themes to pick out of the episodes to justify them watching? When I watched G.I. Joe as a 10 year old, one could easily pick out adult themes with the violence, terrorism, romance, etc. My dad, or mom, never sat down and watched them with me and they never, ever would watch G.I. Joe on their own. Not one of my friends parents would watch cartoons without their children. So, what changed from 1984 to 2012?

I will never watch MLP. There is no way someone could tell me that a cartoon (possibly made for little girls) has more meaning and impact than an episode of G.I. Joe did 20 years ago that would appeal to an adult male. What changed?

I responded before to one of the numerous MLP threads and continue to be confused by the whole thing. It reminds me of adults actually arguing about the Nintendo Wii, a system obviously made with children in mind. Why is it so hard for people to grow up these days? Again, did ANYONE in this thread have their dad say to them when they were a child "Can't take you to baseball practice now son, Strawberry Shortcake is on the tube and they're really getting into something crazy." It DIDN'T HAPPEN. Why does it happen now?


It's made for both by adults. It's like Animaniacs in that way. There's a story about three young girls trying to discover their talents for the kids, then in the sane shot you have Walter, Donnie, The Dude, and Jesus in the bowling alley. Your kids haven't seen The big lebowski. That's for us.

I said it on the previous thread --

It's a release valve.

I go out to hunt every now and then, practice sports, love playing violent videogames, read books from many kinds of authors, go to bars, every now and then hook up witha girl, or go straight to the strip club, paint, do the garden, grill, build a deck along with my cousins, go fishing, drink scotch, fix my truck, etc... I dont let any of that to define what I am.

Some days, I am just tired from work, i am tired of being cynical and negative; and watching the show puts a smile on my face, it's a throwback to my childhood, and normally makes me feel better about the world and just have a more positive outlook on life.

The show, and all the other things I mentioned are simply release valves from the day to day pressures of life. You know very well that life throws crap our way constantly, and we try to do things we enjoy as often as possible in order feel better -- those are our release valves, it just happens that some have a more unorthodox taste than others here and there.

The mistake people make on this and other instances is having a preconceived notion of what things are acceptable and what's not as a release valves/source of entertainment and then forcing such opinions on others.

I don't force my friends to share the same tastes I do, whether beer, tv shows, books or food, and they don't either -- we do exchange ideas and we try things out that are out of our comfort zone, and if we dissent on this or that, we all understand each other. I don't like some salads one of my friends makes, and he doesn't like to go hunting -- and we don't call each other names or consider each other less human beings because of that.

TL,DR: Love and Tolerate.

Somebody has never seen The Animaniacs.

Or Freakazoid!

Or Spongebob. (although I don't like that one myself)

Or The Flintstones.

Or has ever gotten even half of the references or content in old Looney Tunes episodes.

Between Bronycon in NYC, Everfree Northwest in Seattle, Trotcon in Texas, Sweet Apple Acres in Nashville, and BUCK in the UK, you're gonna have to find more asteroids.

Not to mention ponies have taken off like wildfire at anime conventions as well - there were more pony cosplayers at the convention I volunteer for (OMGCon in Paducah) than there were Narutards. That's pretty impressive.

The problem with that little "chestnut":

There's a distinction between being childlike and childish.

Wayne White, whose work you've seen in Pee Wee's Playhouse and the Smashing Pumpkin's video Tonight, Tonight is childlike. There's a documentary about him, called Beauty is Embarrassing highly recommended.

You want an an example of childish? Michael Jackson. He spent his entire life a child in a adult's body and spent the last years of his life regarded as a creepy pedo weirdo.

Lewis was childlike. Bronys? Not so much.

Using Michael Jackson as your example was probably not the best idea. Michael Jackson was the very personification of childlike. As you even say yourself, he was a child his entire life. He just happened to have a man's body.

So the difference between childlike and childish is what? If you find it creepy, it's childish?

I think the people leveling the charges of "manbabies" and the like sincerely feel their masculinity is threatened because someone else is comfortable liking something that the insecure ones don't consider manly. They've built their identity on an outdated concept of manliness and anything that runs counter to it threatens them by introducing the idea that maybe everything they believe might be just nothing more than that... what they believe, not reality.

/and the accusations of pedophilia? Well, that must be what they fixate on. They figure if they liked watching a show about candy colored ponies, their repressed urges to do such things as they accuse would come to light, so anyone who watches such a show must be the same.

They've built their identity on an outdated concept of manliness and anything that runs counter to it threatens them by introducing the idea that maybe everything they believe might be just nothing more than that... what they believe, not reality.

/and the accusations of pedophilia? Well, that must be what they fixate on. They figure if they liked watching a show about candy colored ponies, their repressed urges to do such things as they accuse would come to light, so anyone who watches such a show must be the same.


They also don't know about Hotdoggitydemon.

2012-06-14 02:23:50 AM

Kuroshin: broktune: I get so confused reading these threads. Now, is MLP made specifically for adults or children or both? Are the adults finding "adult" themes to pick out of the episodes to justify them watching? When I watched G.I. Joe as a 10 year old, one could easily pick out adult themes with the violence, terrorism, romance, etc. My dad, or mom, never sat down and watched them with me and they never, ever would watch G.I. Joe on their own. Not one of my friends parents would watch cartoons without their children. So, what changed from 1984 to 2012?

I will never watch MLP. There is no way someone could tell me that a cartoon (possibly made for little girls) has more meaning and impact than an episode of G.I. Joe did 20 years ago that would appeal to an adult male. What changed?

I responded before to one of the numerous MLP threads and continue to be confused by the whole thing. It reminds me of adults actually arguing about the Nintendo Wii, a system obviously made with children in mind. Why is it so hard for people to grow up these days? Again, did ANYONE in this thread have their dad say to them when they were a child "Can't take you to baseball practice now son, Strawberry Shortcake is on the tube and they're really getting into something crazy." It DIDN'T HAPPEN. Why does it happen now?

Somebody has never seen The Animaniacs.

Or Freakazoid!

Or Spongebob. (although I don't like that one myself)

Or The Flintstones.

Or has ever gotten even half of the references or content in old Looney Tunes episodes.

/cartoons have always been made for young and old audiences


Yes, but all these shows you have mentioned aren't aimed primarily at very young girls (well, maybe Freakazoid, I don't know what that is.) That's what is the weird part for me. Sure, if a guy said he watched the Flintstones at 40 years old, big deal. If they say, My Little Pony....ehhhh. It's the aimed at little girls part that is the kicker for me. MLP has, and will always be a little girl toy. I remember my little sister brushing the little tail and mane and all plastic body (which I thought was weird, why not hair on the body). Now, I saw the Big Lebowski references and that is awesome. But, I'm sure you could go back and find similar adult references in Strawberry Shortcake and Rainbow Brite. I knew of no adult male who watched those shows. And, I don't think ALL cartoons have been made equally for both young and old audiences. I think they are mainly aimed toward children, with the exception of The Simpsons, Family Guy etc. What is the advertising during MLP, I'm curious? There have been some very awesome responses, cool to read some thought out shiat.

I can't speak for Rainbow Brite since I've never seen it, but there really wasn't anything like that in Strawberry Shortcake. My daughter was way into Strawberry Shortcake a couple of years ago, so I ended up seeing the original shows as well as the more recent ones, and they were pretty much devoid of any references, dialog or plot points that appeared to be aimed at adults.

I'll post Biker pony again, cuz I like biker pony.
Ring shadow gave me basic biker pony, then I re-drew him to put him on a bike and cored him in. It was a team effort.

MLP has, and will always ...


MLP:FiM isn't the same show as the MLP of old. Not even remotely. I think that's your primary disconnect. It's a completely new cartoon based on old IP. It has more in common with Animaniacs, Spongebob, Ren & Stimpy (oddly enough), and Freakazoid! than it does with the original IP.

You keep getting hung up on target demographics, as if they have any relevance. By that same token, no girls of any age should play video games, because 99% of them are targeted at teen boys and Bros. Never mind the fantastic stories and adventures from the likes of Halflife or Metro 2033 - those games were made for a younger male audience, so they are off-limits to girls. Heaven forbid they ever play and enjoy the likes of Tomb Raider, which has always been intentionally made to be spank material.

There is no such thing as "male things" or "female things". The whole "pink and ponies and frills and lace as a thing for girls" is entirely a social construct. There is no natural aversion or attraction either way. On top of that, MLP:FiM doesn't even have much of that crap. The culturally-defined "girlie things" are actually only a thin veneer covering the basic aesthetic of MLP:FiM. Strip away the bright colors, change the characters into anything other than ponies, and you'd still have an entertaining, funny show full of geek references and acid-trip writing, yet without any "girlie" trappings.

Target demos are how money gets made. Nothing more. A quality product appeals to everybody, regardless of the paint color.

You're giving him too much credit. He's just a troll. It's a sad thing to be, but I doubt he needs institutionalization. He just needs to be ignored, which is exactly where I'm putting him. You should, too. The more bites he gets, the more validated he feels.

Well, you've seen the ponies I've posted. They're all done in watercolor pencil, including the page I posted in this thread.

They're easy to use. They lay down like colored pencil, and look a lot like it when dry, then you can take a wet brush over it to make it watercolor. To that end you have some really fine control.

I don't agree. Trolls get people worked up, they get folks angry and pounding at their keyboards. Make people RAGE. Anyone who receives a dozen replies saying "you're a retard" a la winterwhile or many replies saying "how sad" has failed. When no emotion is behind the responses there is really no validation. In turn the failed troll continues to become more and more inflammatory in hopes of eliciting those reactions. There are/were some very good trolls on this site. However I think we should give credit where credit is due and not validate those who merely receive responses by labeling them as successful.

To be honest I think it looks like an interesting mix of crayon (which I love using) and colored pencils) It lacks that paper crimpling serendipity that distinguishes water colors.

You just have to start drawing. Drawing regularly, everything or anything you can think of. The hand control comes with practice.
I used to think I could never draw too. I'm sure RingShadow will agree here, the most important thing is to keep at it and not get discouraged.
(Although playing around electronically is hella fun too.) I made this for my best friends really sick little sister, it's the character's out of here favorite anime (Ouron HS host club) It was originally sized to march around her desktop as a wall paper. It's super small here because fark.

Actually, if you check research after about the 1970s or so, you find that it's not as cut and dried as "entirely a social construct" or some type of essentialism. Some things do seem to be social constructs, while other things seem to run deeper. Of course, neither side is entirely comfortable with that, in part I suspect because it forces them to admit that the other side thinks.

A friend of mine who draws once said that everybody has 50,000 bad drawings inside them, and that the only thing one needed to do to become good at drawing was to get them out. He estimated that he was somewhere in the mid-30,000s himself.

Still, he's successfully trolling the shiat out of this thread. Gotta give him that at least.

I'm going with "getting ignored by a sizable chunk of FARK, and crying about it" for the lulz.


I'm gonna say he's quite unsuccessful.Good Trolls enrage people, they get them worked up, and emotionally invested in an argument. Folks like winterwhile who elicit a hundred replies of "you're a retard" and others who people just say "that's sad" have failed. A mere response when the goal was anger is a fail. It's not validation which is especially apparent when they keep trying and keep becoming more inflammatory in the process.

Err, I drew things regularly from the time I was about 6 until I was 18 and in the NAVY and didn't have time for it anymore. By regularly, I mean I had a few boxes of old drawings on note pads that I threw away when I moved out, as well as doodles on the sides of notes I took. There was not much in the way of noticeable improvement from the time I was about 12, in spite of getting theory of art type books from the library.

I even took some extra art courses in college to try to rectify this, since I had wanted to incorporate some technical illustration ability into my credentials. Got a gentlemans C for actively trying in the course. To this day when I have to make sketches for work, they look like something you'd expect from a middle schooler. The part of my brain that does the translation from imagination to on paper doesn't work right apparently.

I can, however, mentally assemble and design mechanical objects.

Kuroshin: broktune: Yes, but all these shows you have mentioned aren't aimed primarily at very young girls (well, maybe Freakazoid, I don't know what that is.) That's what is the weird part for me. Sure, if a guy said he watched the Flintstones at 40 years old, big deal. If they say, My Little Pony....ehhhh. It's the aimed at little girls part that is the kicker for me. MLP has, and will always ...

MLP:FiM isn't the same show as the MLP of old. Not even remotely. I think that's your primary disconnect. It's a completely new cartoon based on old IP. It has more in common with Animaniacs, Spongebob, Ren & Stimpy (oddly enough), and Freakazoid! than it does with the original IP.

You keep getting hung up on target demographics, as if they have any relevance. By that same token, no girls of any age should play video games, because 99% of them are targeted at teen boys and Bros. Never mind the fantastic stories and adventures from the likes of Halflife or Metro 2033 - those games were made for a younger male audience, so they are off-limits to girls. Heaven forbid they ever play and enjoy the likes of Tomb Raider, which has always been intentionally made to be spank material.

There is no such thing as "male things" or "female things". The whole "pink and ponies and frills and lace as a thing for girls" is entirely a social construct. There is no natural aversion or attraction either way. On top of that, MLP:FiM doesn't even have much of that crap. The culturally-defined "girlie things" are actually only a thin veneer covering the basic aesthetic of MLP:FiM. Strip away the bright colors, change the characters into anything other than ponies, and you'd still have an entertaining, funny show full of geek references and acid-trip writing, yet without any "girlie" trappings.

Target demos are how money gets made. Nothing more. A quality product appeals to everybody, regardless of the paint color.


Nope. That's a reach and saying so does not make it so. This thinking has led to the emasculation of the male in our culture. Raise your voice...oh he's being aggressive. Portray your masculinity....oh he's being intolerant to the opposite sex and gays. Follow sports.....oh he's a meathead. There IS a difference between men and women and the things they like.

A friend of mine who draws once said that everybody has 50,000 bad drawings inside them, and that the only thing one needed to do to become good at drawing was to get them out. He estimated that he was somewhere in the mid-30,000s himself.


I agree with the sentiment, but not the numbers. I'd say I'm in the mid hundreds. Though I started with very abstract things that weren't meant to look like anything, they were just a collection of lines and curves that I hoped looked good when I finished. stuff like: i451.photobucket.com Which I don't have the original to because I used it to pay a bar tab =D A hefty one too.

But a good portion of those things are based on the society in which those men and women reside, not on their biological gender. If the gender-based likes of humans were absolutes, most things that are "for men" or "for women" would be the same across all, or at least most, cultures. Spend some time in other countries and interacting with people from different cultures and you will find that what is considered masculine or feminine is not the same. Yes, there absolutely are physiological and psychological differences between the sexes, but to suggest that all members of a gender, regardless of culture, are predisposed to like or dislike certain things shows that you have never actually spent any amount of time researching the topic.

All of the examples you provide are actually evidence of the societal role in the process, rather than "proof" of its absence. If it wasn't a societal construct, then culturally it would be like our secondary sexual characteristics. For example, one of the secondary sexual characteristics of being a male is that they have a penis. This is understood by people the world around. No matter what culture you look at, they accept that males have penises. No one goes around suggesting that men only have a penis because society taught them to have a penis. You can go to any country in the world and find that men do in fact have penises. The same is not true for the societal constructs that go along with gender. You will not find that men are necessarily interested in fast cars in every culture, or expensive "toys", or sports, or violent movies and games.

Whether you are aware of it or not, our societies train children from the very earliest of ages what the gender roles are for that culture. It's in the design of the clothes, the entertainment that is consumed, even the way buildings are designed. Thus we end up with things like being a "stay at home dad" is weird and emasculating in the United States, but is not unusual in some European countries, and is considered almost blasphemous in some middle-Eastern countries.

I took a college drawing class in the 80s when I was halfheartedly going for secondary education certification because engineering wasn't getting me anywhere. (Still thought I was going to be a metallurgist. Horrible decade for that.) Anyway, you know what was the most useful benefit I got from the class?? It cured shyness. Sitting across from someone while you're both staring at each other's faces, after a few minutes you just shrug and discover you're used to that sort of thing.

Haven´t draw in a while.. currently my webcomic project is done in Poser figures (yeah, I know... cheating). I really should pick up and draw and paint again...

BTW, I find hilarious that some people bring up the "Emasculation of the American Male"... Asking men to have some sensibility and open mind and not being pigs doesn't mean that you should be "ashamed" of being a male.

Thanks professor, that was a very well written diagnosis of cultures. I mean, do we really have to delve this deep when we are talking about My Little Farking Pony? You will never, ever convince me that this show wasn't made specifically with little girls in mind. That is my point. Why are grown men watching this show specifically. I'm happy for your smarts. I'm sure you do well at cocktail parties. I applaud you. You're right, I haven't spent time researching this specific topic, you are above me. Again, to say that society has brainwashed males and females into enjoying certain things has some logic to it. But to make it an absolute is ludicrous. What will you buy your nephew for his birthday, a doll, a my little pony? No, most likely, you'll buy him those toys society forces on us maaaaan: a car, blocks, or a football. This isn't rocket science, it's simple human nature. Grown men watching My Little Pony is strange to many. That's just how it is. To explain it away by numerous uses of the word penis does little to explain this strange fascination with a little girls show.

My cousin and my best friend had told me about this show but wasn't really interested. I didn't have any real interest in the show until right before season 2 was about to start. I had seen some clips and fanart and was like "bleh"

But I had been asked by my cousin to babysit my nieces and nephews on saturdays for her... being the good uncle I am, I had to download whatever show the kids liked so as to have something ready for them.

So I started watching some of the episodes I had downloaded along with my nieces and saw that the show was actually good. When I found out that John de Lancie was basically gonna reprise his role as Q for the Season 2 premiere I was delighted. Watching those actual episodes + the ANH shoutout (the award ceremony) had my inner geek jumping in joy.

It is actually thanks to the show that I am seen as the cool uncle by all the kids nowadays -- and yeah, even my nephews like the ponies. The kids even gave me a couple of Rarity figures because they know I'm a lot like her.

I said it before, the show has amazing music, sound effects, memorable characters, really good writing, every now and then there's an episode that is a stinker and has you groaning as an adult, but for the most part the show is much better than many other shows and cartoons I've seen.

I consider the fact that the main characters being pastel colored ponies to be completely inconsequential -- they could be replaced by cute sharks and it woulda been the same for me.

You're being obtuse. Everything, and I do mean everything you just said right there outlines social constructs, not natural biological differences. Human beings, as creatures, imprint on societal norms as babies through their earliest development phases. However, there is also the false premise that gender biases are binary - only a minority of boys are purely into "boy things" exclusively, while most still show varying levels of interest in traditionally "feminine" things (makeup, jewelry, scents, soft cloths, babies, etc.). Many hide it due to ego overriding interest, driving right back at that societal pressure to conform to either a masculine or feminine ideal.

You're wasting time railing against what you perceive to be the "pussification" (not your words, but your sentiment) of the American Male, while sticking your head in the sand to the truth that Males have always been spread all over the gender bias spectrum. The reason things are more transparent these days is due to ubiquitous instant-communication technology. Societal norms exert less pressure when people are capable of researching issues and understanding what really is "normal" compared to what society declares.

tl;dr - Shiat like this has always been normal. You're just waking up to that fact. Go rooting through the possessions of men throughout the ages, and you'll find plenty of evidence to challenge your binary world view.

Not only will you not change his mind. I sincerely doubt he is even taking to heart the content of what you are saying. I think he's skimming through it looking for reasons to be dismissive by either questioning your motives of attacking you directly. Being right or wrong here (and you are right) has no bearing in a debate where both sides are not open minded. A super simple counter example would be to show that a hundred years ago little boys wore pink and wore dresses. You will find it impossible to dissuade him of the notion that MLP is a little girls show. No matter why you/I/we like it, no matter how adult oriented it really is, no matter why so many other adults enjoy it, you won't get him past the wall in the road of "it's a show for 8yo girls" I'm not necessarily saying give up, but at least acknowledge that its a losing battle if you continue.

What, expressing my opinion? Do I need a reason for that?


Yes, you do. Unless you're mentally ill, you have reasons for each and every one of your behaviors. Obviously you don't have to share it with the rest of us if you don't want to, but chances are that you have a reason to express your opinion.

nope. not at all. but don't you think it's a bit immature to come into a thread and call all the posters friendless weirdos? It makes people wonder what your motivations are, or at the very least why/how you've come to the conclusion that people watching a TV how called friendship is magic, some of whom clearly seem to be friends with others in the thread, are friendless. That just seems silly. It's like going into a thread where people are discussing their daily multi-hour exercise regimens and calling them all fat and weak-willed.

I think it's fantastic that our responses are contradictory.
I think I took his question a little more literally... he doesn't need a reason to express an opinion (in he general sense) , but he DOES need a reason to be expressing the thoughts and opinions he has shared with us. At least he's not bottling it all up for himself.

\sharing is caring =P

spamdog: Keizer_Ghidorah: If it's not harming anyone, why are you making such a big deal of it?

I can do whatever the fark I like.


Yes, you do... But being entitled to once opinion means being responsible for said opinion...

If I go into a soccer/football thread and insist that all the football fans are a bunch of racist animals that enter into an uncontrollable rage because a few morons are unable to kick properly a damn ball based solely on the behavior of the hooligans, I'm basically asking to be insulted and antagonized with.

You have the right to express whatever you said, you have the right to call us who enjoy the show freaks and weirdos... that's YOUR prerogative.

It's mine to think that you are kinda a jerk for antagonize so vehemently about something that you don't understand, don't care to understand and it's not doing anything bad besides be "weird" to a bunch of what I think are pseudo-machos with an identity complex.

/Also think that I'm an idiot for keep engaging in this.

Uchiha_Cycliste: Not only will you not change his mind. I sincerely doubt he is even taking to heart the content of what you are saying. I think he's skimming through it looking for reasons to be dismissive by either questioning your motives of attacking you directly. Being right or wrong here (and you are right) has no bearing in a debate where both sides are not open minded. A super simple counter example would be to show that a hundred years ago little boys wore pink and wore dresses. You will find it impossible to dissuade him of the notion that MLP is a little girls show. No matter why you/I/we like it, no matter how adult oriented it really is, no matter why so many other adults enjoy it, you won't get him past the wall in the road of "it's a show for 8yo girls" I'm not necessarily saying give up, but at least acknowledge that its a losing battle if you continue.

Mid-corner. Final lean angle still not set. I have a bad habit of turning this constant-radius corner into a reducing-radius corner due to my bad line. I'm trying to keep it tight and leave room at the outside for faster riders to pass me, which results in wonky lines.

Don't like soccer, not a brony, just someone who doesn't feel the need to think that being "manly" has any sort of importance and that raging and whining about other people's hobbies is retarded.

Dude, that's super sweet. I'm incredibly jealous.
I can't ever ride/have a motorcycle. I totally lack the capacity for moderation and self-control. If suddenly I'm on a bike that can go as fast as I want *WITHOUT* pedaling I'll die. Simple as that.
Similarly, when I rent a car (as I am rarely but occasionally wont to do) I specifically ask for their weakest and most gutless car. I will redline the sucker, whatever they give me. So I like a car with no engine. Something with horsepower in the 80's or 90's. that makes me a happy camper.

On a quasi related note, my ride to work on Tuesday morning was my best evar. By far. I took the longer route, 21 miles. It flirts with the peninsula foothills on the edge of Stanfurd's campus, and then bee-lines it into silicon valley. It accumulatively has 390 feet of ascent. I did it in 56:54 door to door. Garmin gave me a recorded average speed of 22 (actual was probably in the 23's or 24's because of accelerations and decelerations. Average recorded cadence was 92 (actual appears to be about 100) , average recorded Heart Rate was 167 (actual appears to be 174). I've been working towards breaking an hour on this route for years, and Tuesday I blew an hour out of the water! I'm so very proud. Now I just gotta get strong enough I can do this every day =D.

Anyways, riding a motorcycle would kill me, which saddens me but I realize it so I abstain. Your bike looks awesome and I'm jealous.

Teufelaffe: That's funny, not a single person in this thread has said that gender is a social construct.

I believe the argument was that Gender Roles and behavioral norms were a social construct. Of course, since he has dick to argue on that, he has to resort to the "SCIENCE SAYS SO AND THATS THAT HMPH" line of argument.

Biological delineation of gender through primary and secondary sexual characteristics are not the same as role norms, which are highly cultural in nature.

Gender roles ≠ Gender, ergo BigJake missed the point entirely and then lashed out at other people because he missed the point. I'd agree with I created this alt... and say he's an amusing idiot, but I don't find the willfully ignorant to be particularly amusing. Just tiresome.

For example. there is the idiocy you just pointed out.

You'd fit right in with a good number of the track rats. I'm the conservative perfectionist, more concerned with getting my technique down and edging upward into the range where the bike is designed to perform. About half the other guys at the track are hormone junkies who aren't happy unless they nearly fling the bike off around every corner. You can tell who's who by looking at their gear. The junkies have gear rashed up along every surface, bikes with half (or all) of the plastics missing and mismatched parts.

But that's what the gear's for. Keeps ya relatively okay, while the track itself is designed to minimize sidelong impacts.

I'm sure moike has plenty of stories... LOL

A few of my pals don't ride on the street anymore, because they'd just get in trouble/dead. They save their bikes for the track.

Bought a Trek Soho S a few weeks ago, to get myself back into some form of decent shape. Wanted a SS to start for the simplicity (and I hate tuning shiat), while I'll flop it over to a taller fixed gear once I feel I'm not getting the workout I need from having the ability to coast.

I can make it maybe two miles before getting winded. :/

/so out of shape...
 
2012-06-15 01:15:13 PM
First off, don't switch to fixie mode. it will just accelerate knee wear. There are really three and only three (two of which are related) reasons to fixie a bike.
First and most obvious is racing at a velodrome.
Second is anti theft. It's a very simple bike little to steal, but from out point of view no different from a SS. This point also relates to the third.
Third, before disc brakes it was absolutely necessary for bike messengers. The fixed gear gives unparalleled stopping power in the rain. Rim brakes don't even come close. Rain doesn't stop messengers from having to deliver, it just makes ther runs more dangerous. Because they can stop the wheel at will, all they have to worry about is traction with the road which they can improve with tire pressure and width. Similarly fixies (especially the ones w/o quick releases) are easy to (un)lock quickly. see point two.

Everything you'e said tells me that none of these points come into play. So i beg you, stay in SS mode. All messengers will tell you that the fixie destroyed their knees. It's not worth it. Instead get a Garmin 500, or some other cyclometer with a cadence sensor and learn to spin. All the benefits and none of the risk.

More to follow in upcoming posts. This stands alone to stress its importance.

Its like anything people can be a fan of. There are those of us who think it's entertaining, and enjoy it for what it is.

And then there's people like that tumblr page that take it to extremes that even fans of their obsession call it creepy. Trying to say everybody who likes something falls into the creepy category is, to use the same comparison I used earlier, like saying all fans of star trek are weirdos who learn klingon. It's just not true.
 
2012-06-15 01:54:46 PM
Now, it should go without saying. Btu if you have any questions, or you need mechanical (wrenching) help, or tips about commuting and riding etc... email me and let me know. I'll help in every way that I can. It's too bad you are 650 miles away. But you can always email me and then we an talk over the phone.

If your goal is truly increased fitness you will see the greatest gains from climbing. It will suck at first, and it will suck for quite a while... like a month probably, if you are willing to climb once or twice every weekend. However, once you get over that hump you will start getting much stronger and much fitter relatively quickly. Go hang out near the International Rose Test garden At first your goals should be just to get up the danm thing no matter how long it takes and how painful it is. After you have one climb under your belt, start doing longer climbs or more short climbs.( Incidentally another bonus of SS over fixue is the ability to descend hills and mountains.) You will probably find it beneficial to add bar ends to your bike. When you do so, remember that the bar ends should be parallel with the stem, whatever angle that may be. It will give you the most power, and the most comfortable position when using the bar ends, no matter how wacky it may look.

Every time you ride you need to check off the following things:
Gloves (numero uno)
Helmet
Spare tube, hand/frame pump, tires levers (if necessary) and the knowledge of how to change a flat.
If you are riding for more than 15 minutes you need water (or Gatorade) with you, and you should be drinking a little bit every 10 minutes.
If you are riding for more than 75 minutes you need food and should be eating a little something every 15 minutes. Bananas, tangerines and candy bars are personal favorites for ease of consumption, cost, tastiness and convenience.
If it is hot and sunny wear sunscreen.
I HIGHLY recommend you be wearing at least shorts with a chamois. Whether racer style lycra like I wear, or baggy shorts like may mountain bikers wear

Your saddle should be parallel with the ground and should be positioned such that you are sitting only on your sit bones.
If everything is set up right you should have no issues with your perennial nerve. Likewise, if you ever, EVAR have your junk go numb then you have positioning problems that must be dealt with promptly.

Well bud, that's all the basic info I have to impart upon you.
I'm going to get my shiat together and ride to work in a minute When I get there I'll respond to any inquiries you may have and I have some motorcycle ones myself.

I feel that anyone who watches and enjoys the show (and self-identifies) is a Brony.
That guy is a freak. If it was MLP it would be Sailor moon, or Sesame street, or Fresh Air, or something. He i off, and in this instance is using MLP-FIM as his outlet.
It is totally unfair to place all Bronies in a bucket based on him.

Well the advice is well-received. I definitely don't want to go blowing out my knees needlessly, since I kinda need those for tracking my bike.

Plus, it saves me money!

Not many hills where I'm at right now. Probably going to try adding teeth down the road to get some extra load on the few slopes we do got. As of right now though, the gearing on this bike is enough.

But definitely thanks for the advice.
 
2012-06-15 03:11:47 PM
Clarification: There are no hills immediately near me. Nearest hill of any kind is still 10 miles away. I can't quite make that round-trip as it stands, let alone climb Sexton Mountain (or Sylvan...eeesh) at the half-way point.

But hey, it's a goal for the Fall...

That's what I was getting at when I said there are those of us who like it for what it is, and those who take it to extremes. He's firmly in the latter category. Make fun of him all you want. What gets me is all the people in these threads who basically claim that anyone who has any association with MLP outside of aggressively mocking people who enjoy it, or the meme, are on par with that guy. those are the mentally unstable tools who need to take a moment and reflect on themselves. As they've got SERIOUS and probably un-diagnosed problems.

exactly.
If you can't have a sense of humor about yourself and take a little teasing now and then, you are going to lead a miserable life.
When I said the only direct social interaction I've had with bronies has been 12-16 yo gheys playing Minecraft, I meant that as fact, not as an insult. 12-16 year olds are assholes no matter what though, that has been my perspective.
If you are taking an ambiguous statement or image and turning it into a message of hate or meanness, that's all in your own head. Not you specifically of course. I think we understand each other pretty well.

Kuroshin: Clarification: There are no hills immediately near me. Nearest hill of any kind is still 10 miles away. I can't quite make that round-trip as it stands, let alone climb Sexton Mountain (or Sylvan...eeesh) at the half-way point.

But hey, it's a goal for the Fall...


You'll be amazed. 20 miles RT will be like nothing in not very long as long as you keep at it, and don't give up. You want to really push yourself and get a little stronger every ride. I highly recommend a cyclometer to gauge your progress. Once you have that Give each ride a goal. For instance: today I will ride 30 minutes.
Next ride: Today I will ride 35 minutes
Next: today I will ride 40 min
Next: Today I will go one mile farther in 40 min.
And so on and so forth. Keep it up!

\Praise Biki.

Uchiha_Cycliste: I totally lack the capacity for moderation and self-control.

BronyMedic: being creepily obsessed


part 3

Uchiha_Cycliste: he's living vicariously through us, he sees a community and doesn't understand what and how that can be, so he's exploring what it means be attacking it.


You are truly deluded. Seek help.

Teufelaffe: That's funny, not a single person in this thread has said that gender is a social construct


Ah, naked pedantry. Nice. If gender ROLES are mostly or entirely "socially constructed" then gender must be as well, or the genders would have few to no innate tendencies of any kind. The genders would be essentially bucket A and bucket B and society decides what to put in said buckets. Saying I NEVER SAID THE BUCKETS DON'T EXIST is immaterial. The contents are, and you claim they're not.

Uchiha_Cycliste: There is the incredible compliment he paid me, while trying to insult me


Again with the seeking help. You are seriously and profoundly maladjusted.

FirstNationalBastard: Well, shiat, all cosplayers are weird and creepy and begging for attention


Talk about the pot and the farking kettle

Wow, that is by far the most twisted, moronic, lame-ass attempt at logic I have ever encountered on Fark. To type that paragraph with any semblance of earnestness would require a level of ignorance about biology that most people rise above in pre-school. Just reading that caused me brain damage, so I can only imagine the utter devastation your brain must have endured thinking it up.

I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

For someone who said he doesn't care about this subject, you're really going all-out to insult, belittle, and rage at everyone over it.

I think he just doesn't understand what words and phrases mean. Just look at what he said to me in the prior comment:
Me: "There is the incredible compliment he paid me, while trying to insult me"

Him: "Again with the seeking help. You are seriously and profoundly maladjusted."

I can't find any way that this makes sense. None at all. It confounds me. I believe he is reading a conversation that the rest of us aren't seeing And commenting and responding to his magical solo conversation. He sort of reminds me of General J1m also he reminds me of my brother's wife's schizophrenic cousin. It's almost not funny anymore.

it's worth noting he's raging alone. No one else really cares that much, beyond saying "yay ponies!" and posting pics.

Also, "this Con is gonna smell like a stable"... fitting really.

I ignored him a long time ago. It's not nice to make fun of the mentally handicapped.

BronyMedic:

I want to be clear, that I'm not making fun of the mentally handicapped. I was using gen jim and Toby as a comparison that I've just realized, or just come to that conclusion. Before now I thought he was just prickish, but he's now exhibited behavior that goes far beyond. Anyways, I had no intention to sounding like I am making fun of the handicapped. or that I thought he might be not well until just now.

You are right to all me on it, if I was doing so intentionally.

Uchiha_Cycliste: I can't find any way that this makes sense


Again, that's because you're profoundly dense and maladjusted. If an adult says in all seriousness that you are a manbaby and you take it as a compliment, implying that, as a grown-ass man, you find this description pleasing, you have several clinical disorders going on.

That's good. Doing so would be pretty bad for your self esteem.

that's not what you said, you said from the mouths of babes.
That means something insightful, and truthful.

You may have modified it to say man-babes which, frankly, adds an adult element to it. But it's still a very well known and widely recognized idiom, universally known to mean something very wise or insightful.
 
2012-06-16 02:44:39 AM
sorry, very wise or very insightful. It's quite a compliment.
 
2012-06-16 02:47:28 AM

Uchiha_Cycliste: That means something insightful, and truthful.


Yes, specifically the quoted part right before of you admitting "I'm stupid." You need to work on your reading comprehension there chief. Though that's pretty far down that particular list
 
2012-06-16 02:53:17 AM
I admitted a mistake. It was a stupid thing to do to forget I couldn't see the post because of one of the words in it. Are you trying to make it some major thing beyond that? Are you entirely discarding the context, and the rest of the post and focusing on two words out of forty? Do you think you're slipping one by any one? Further, do you think its some horrible thing to admit a mistake? It was silly of me to repeat the same idea multiple times because I couldn't see it. I'm certain everyone else saw that and understood what I meant. Did you not?
Regardless of your immature attempt to remove two words from their context. In acknowledging my realization of a mistake you said it was very insightful. What you said and they way you did it was complimentary. Even if on your end you meant it to be a nasty post, the words you used come out as quite kind.
 
2012-06-16 02:58:52 AM
yes, yes, no, yes, no, maybe, yes, yes, no, no, no, no
 
2012-06-16 03:04:19 AM
No you see, you don't get to redefine an idiom. Those are the words you used, that's what they mean. It's a compliment. You are trying to bend reality to your will, you can't do that. Society and language is based on the idea that we all share the same meaning for the same words and phrases. Trying to change those meaing makes you look like a four year old. It's like you are throwing a tantrum and going "nuh uh! that's not what they mean"
Is that what you are doing? And you throwing a tantrum?

Now I'm going to take a shower and shave my legs so that I can massage my legs. Then I'm going to massage them so that I can ride more strongly for tomorrows 100K of hills and head winds. Then I'm going to wrench a little bit and go to bed. You sit there and think about what you did and how your fighting it reflects upon you.
 
2012-06-16 03:15:06 AM
I see the confusion here. You literally don't know what words mean. That's not what an idiom is. It's "a group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words." That particular phrase is one whose meaning is either deduced, as the author's intent can be in this case, or directly recalled as it's a famous quote (idioms are rarely if ever quotes.) I altered this quote to both induce recall on the part of the reader and to make it specifically applicable to the subject at hand. You can absolutely do this, both to idioms and not-idioms as in this case. The fact that you both don't understand the words you use and think that altering even the correct usage of the word is NOT ALLOWED!!! shows some pretty low wattage and and/or a whole grip of bad teaching in your life, but that's already been established.

he may be "trolling" but he's certainly no troll.

Time to ride! probably 70 miles, ,7000 feet climbing and 20 miles with a headwind on the coast.
Best way to fight triple digit heat EVAR.
