    I guess you haven't heard of bronies.



    We've all heard of bronies. That doesn't change the fact that it's flat out bizarre. I'm in college and I live down the hall from a big time brony. I asked him to please explain why bronies love it so much. Is it all just for shock factor? Or is it that they truly enjoy this show? He answered me with "Well, it's just something to watch. You know, there haven't been many good cartoons lately, so it's just something to watch to pass the time." That statement sounded extremely pathetic to me. If there's nothing to watch, then WATCH NOTHING instead of watching the "least worst thing you can find" (which it isn't, btw). That's what I do. I almost never watch television.

      I actually feel sorry for the young girls of today. When they grow up, they're going to see how their parents defiled their cherished childhood cartoon (*cough*clopfics*hack*rule 34*cough*), and have their nostalgia rained on.

        It's a girl's show based on girl's toys! What kind of guy would get into this?


        I'm a Brony too.

        Thank you for sharing that.

                I don't care if people like it, I am never going to give in to this show.


                I once thought like that. Then I discovered that the show itself wasn't that bad. Quite entertaining in fact.
                So many people say this, and I really don't get it. It looks like a colorful show full of ponies, songs, bland, childish jokes, and lessons about friendship, and it is a colorful show full of ponies, songs, bland, childish jokes, and lessons about friendship. What is it that people aren't expecting that draws them in so much?

                      In my country (the United Kingdom), My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has a come & go presence on Boomerang.
                      I would watch it, but;

                      A. Currently, it is absent from the Boomerang schedule.
                      B. I'm worried my mom might question why I'd watch such a girly cartoon, and I don't wanna have to go through the trouble of defending myself in a situation like that (as I have sometimes had to do before!)!

                      I have seen clips of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic online and I really like what I've seen!
                      Despite being male (rendering me a Brony in this case), I enjoyed the original My Little Pony cartoon as a kid! Guess I kinda predicted Friendship is Magic's Brony-ism!
                      I believe elsewhere on these forums, in a thread on male users liking girls cartoons, it was said that the original My Little Pony cartoon, despite being girl targeted, did appeal to some boys, but My Little Pony Tales was just too girly.

                        I personally don't see the appeal of this show, but I do at least admire the courage of these bronies.

                          I liked the original show, but was seriously put off by the art/animation of the new one & couldn't stand to watch even a single episode.

                            My little pony is a girls show, no matter how you slice it. A childs show nonetheless lol.

                            Apparently almost every man around the world.
                            Except the Japanese. They don't even have a Wikipedia page for it in Japanese.
                            Ahhh yes, the "it's popular, therefore it's justified" argument. Almost every man in the world (despite the fact MLP isn't even close to being that popular, but that aside) could be into Dora the Explorer. That wouldn't change the fact it's a cartoon for little girls that I could personally never enjoy.

                                      The original cartoon was very girly unlike Friendship is Magic which is just a great comedy show with that special appeal.
