GAT_00: I've always thought the whole Bronie thing was incredibly creepy. It's not like a kids show you grew up with.
Wayne 985: If you're a grown man, without kids, and you're watching My Little Pony, you had better be stoned. Otherwise, I really have to assume you have some sort of emotional or mental immaturity or that you're close to being a pedophile.This stuff is remarkably creepy. It's not an "all ages" show, it's for little girls and, yes, I judge you for obsessing over it. I'm all for geekdom, but at a certain point, it has to be said: if you're a man, be a man. You people are about a step away from leering at children on a swing set.
Grand_Moff_Joseph: Because People in power are Stupid: Please stop with the pony pics. We are all adults here.I know, right? I mean, why the heck would anyone post a pony pic in this thread? TFA may be talking about ponies, but that's obviously no excuse to post a pony in this thread.
Snark Shark II: So... why can't people just like stuff?I like fishing, but some people would find that boring. These threads always become " stop liking what I don't like."Maybe being a brony is slightly weird but no weirder than being a wrestling or football nut. Congratulations, you nerd out about grown men wrestling each other to the ground over and over again. It's only acceptable because people have been doing it for generations but you have to admit, objectively it looks a little homosexual. People with glass houses and everything...
davidphogan: Mr. Hands was the original Brony.
bencoon: Some people sure have very strong opinions about a Saturday morning cartoon.
likefunbutnot: I have a Rainbow Dash hat (there is a bad picture of it in my profile). It is 900 million percent cooler than anything else I could ever put on my body. That hat gets me dates.Even if I do have a non-ironic appreciation of ponies and friendship and little purple dragons, which I totally do, I also have an appreciation for the fact that I put on that hat and girls think it's adorable. I am not trying to brag here in any specific fashion but I am doing very well at this point and it is all because I have an awesome hat.
Because People in power are Stupid: Heron: So liking any animated show you didn't grow up with makes an adult "creepy"? I wasn't aware that sequential drawings magically became pornography at the age of 18.It's creepy because it's meant for little girls and their parents, not 20 somethings living in Mom's basement.
fickenchucker: Show me brony who isn't messed up in one way or another (fat, ugly, pedophilic or basement-dwelling--take your pick) and I'll show you a real unicorn. Neither exist in real life.
FirstNationalBastard: Grand_Moff_Joseph: The amount of haters in this thread is kind of comical, actually. Sorry if anyone ruined your day, ITGs.Almost as comical as the projection and shoddy reasons they give for being assholes.You have the "ZOMG PEDOFILE U WANT LITTL GURLS" people who are projecting in imax, you have the "SOMEONE WATCHING CANDY COLORED PONIES COULD CONCEIVABLY MAKE ME LESS OF A MAN!" geniuses, and there's always the "SEXUAL DEVIANTS! WE IGNORE ALL OTHER RULE 34 BESIDES PONIES! NFL SLASHFIC? I HAVE NO RESPONSE FOR THAT! PONIES ARE ALL THAT LEAD TO DEVIANCY!" people.Really, if someone you don't even know watching a show about candy colored ponies threatens your masculinity, you ain't much of a man to begin with, are you? And BTW, your standards of masculinity are about century out of date.The Pedophile screamers? Projecting their own urges. They're the ones with children on the brain.Deviants? Eh, go look at Anime fans if you want to see deviance in action. And even then, what business is it of yours?So, take to your fainting couches, and deal with it.[i6.photobucket.com image 500x281]
omeganuepsilon: Meh, pony fandom is just as bad as watching any other child intended works, it reflects a child-like mindset-ability-affinity. You know, like we all have denigrated Micheal Jackson for.People addicted to bright colors as children are.People who's ability is limited to the short and quick events that need little to no attention span.People find attraction in puerile stories that need little functioning intellectual abilityThe show as a whole is manufactured for people of those "qualities", and they eat it up wholesale. Man-children, no better than ICP asking how magnets work and then cursing those that offer education on the topic. Vehemently defending their infatuation of child-like wonder against those who find it distasteful.In fact, Ponies are the new ICP. ICP tried to teach acceptance and tolerance(social outcasts all banding together to enjoy life), it is a big part of their culture. Don't judge. Only it's stylized cute, instead of stylized clowns with axes and decapitations. ICP washed of all the make-up and imagery and results in pure inanity.
encyclopediaplushuman: The average brony is an 14-25 yr. old. guy who just loves the show.
gad: Also Anthony Bourdain is not cool, when I see his name I think about someone who calls out and says uncalled for nasty things about various television cooks/ food personalities cause he doesn't like their particular brand of presenting or whatever. So he has no credibility with me regardless of what he says or does. The opposite of 'cool'
broktune: Snark Shark II: So... why can't people just like stuff?I like fishing, but some people would find that boring.

Congratulations, you nerd out about grown men wrestling each other to the ground over and over again. It's only acceptable because people have been doing it for generations but you have to admit, objectively it looks a little homosexual. People with glass houses and everything...It has to do with the fact that grown men are fans of a show that is targeted, marketed, made for....PRIMARILY... little girls. It's creepy and strange. A grown man being way into wrestling is also a bit strange, but it doesn't carry the caveat of being targeted mainly towards little girls. When it comes to these Bronies it has and will always be the little girl factor. It's downright scary. Could you imagine being a little kid back in the day and saying to your dad, "Hey, let's play some catch." Your father turns to you and says, "Not right now son, Strawberry Shortcake is on and I want to catch the end of it." But, the Bronies will say, Strawberry Shortcake didn't have the types of adult references that MLP has. All cartoons have winks and nods to adults because many of us have to watch this dreck with our kids. It has nothing to do with watching a cartoon. It has everything to do with an adult male watching a little girl's cartoon.

Olympic Trolling Judge: President Merkin Muffley: Oh look, it's FirstNationalPedo again here to tell us how his pederastic urges are totally normal.Aw, you're just mad because he didn't like your Peyton x Eli fic.
ImNotFatImFluffy: except..... bronies are guys.... always.
fusillade762: red5ish: Bourdain's wife is hot.[img201.imageshack.us image 320x240][img33.imageshack.us image 634x714]I don't think there's any dispute about that. She could probably kick all of our collective asses, too.
fusillade762: Anthony Bourdain of CNNIs he really "of CNN" if his show there hasn't even started yet?
