No, Bronies are quite hateable.

However, if you grew up in the 80s, MPL: FiM is definitely better than any shiat cartoon from that era.

Now, if you grew up in the early 90s, you had Animaniacs, Batman: The Animated Series, The Tick, Tiny Toons, Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck, Freakazoid, Ren and Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, and so much more, so the new My Little Pony is a return to form for good cartoons.

/The late-90s had good Cartoon Network originals, too.

I'm pretty sure I hate Bronies and anyone else who doesn't bow to the superiority of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

I'm sure I'm romanticizing them, but it seems to me that Dungeons & Dragons, the Gummi Bears and Star Blazers were the best cartoons ever.

If you watched cartoons in the 80's, like I did, then we probably shouldn't be arguing about cartoons and we should especially be totally ignoring cartoons with little ponies, especially if you don't have kids.  WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?

I don't hate bronies. I don't care about them. I hate MLP because it's a show for girls and the closest thing like that I can watch is Azumanga Daioh.

Bronies are alright by me, and MLP is a genuinely well done show even if it's not to my taste.

It's pretty bad that the bastardization of Macross was still better than most cartoons growing up. Still, Robotech is responsible for getting me into mecha in the first place so I cant complain TOO much about it.

Who hates bronies? I find them hilarious.

The world is a better place when you have things that everyone can laugh at (bronies don't count as people - they're ponies).

You're right.

I grew up watching Bugs Bunny et al smoke, chew, use snuff, swear, make wolf howls at women, and had racial sterotypes that would get you fired and sued if you tried it today.

Bronies are not hated, they're pitied, ridiculed and the target of exasperation, perhaps, but not hated.

I loved the shows Swat Kats, Megas XLR, Animaniacs and Johnny Quest (new version).  I never defined myself as belonging to their damn subculture.

I even watched Dexter's Lab and Powerpuff Girls when I got older, well away from their target demographic, yet I still did not prance around in Dexter's Lab coat or have a bunch of dolls that looked like Bubbles.

You cannot justify this subculture.  It is vapid and only exists because of a variant of the "fursecution" nonsense.

/stop liking what I don't like.
 
2013-09-09 04:23:53 PM  
Actually the reason I don't like Bronies is because they insist on ponifying and oversexualizing everything. It's not about jealousy.

I for one prefer Powerpuff Girls myself, but I do not try to redraw my favorite video game characters into Powerpuffs. And I wasn't too happy with the fanservicy treatment it got in Japan. Come to think of it, you get lots of fanservice in Japan. You hear they're anthropomorphising the WW2 Japanese Navy now for an anime. At least these girls are wearing something below the belt unlike Strike Witches. Seriously, STOP IT WITH THE PANTSLESS FLYING MAGICAL GIRL JETPLANES, JAPAN!

...um yeah, anyway, that's not why I hate Bronies. I got priorities.

Because people are finally realizing that it's OK to like things that other people don't like?  Seriously, if you care so much about what other people watch on television, the problem isn't with them.

FTA: Top 5 Reasons My Little Pony Is Better Than Any Cartoon I Grew Up With ("I" being an adult man-boy who lives in his mother's basement):

5. I masturbate to ponies.
4. I masturbate to ponies.
3. I masturbate to ponies.
2. Did I mention I jack it to ponies?
1. I dream of being raped by a large pink pony.


Yes, that seems to about cover it.

To follow that logic, you apparently don't like all of humanity.  Rule 34, and all that.

Or have you not picked up on the fact that Brony ≠ a person with sexual interest in MLP?

I recall a time when grown men were tripping over their own dicks for a cartoon before...it was called "Duck Tales"...and it was 100X the cartoon "Friendship is Magic" will ever be....it had multiplain animation, and a full symphonic score, and was more than a glorified toy commercial for 5 year old girls.

The ponies show is better than much of whats on the air...its well written , executed etc...but its still a cartoon for little girls. so for grown men without children to be obsessing over it, is a little weird. Harmless , but weird to me.


//p.s.  the HeMan cartoon sucked balls.  All Filmation Cartoons sucked balls. the worst audio ever to air on Saturday mornings. were they recorded in  coffee can or what?
