    Yes, but when everyone else calls bronies social outcasts for doing the equivalent of queefing on their masculinity, they overreact. It's no secret that a 20-something man watching a show for little girls is not really normal.

    Normal is subjective. I think its retarded, hell my roomate is a brony. (Not a big one though) But would people not think that playing video games is abnormal for a 20 something year old? Different strokes for different folks my friend. I only have a problem with it when they start projecting shit on top of it, like the deep underlying story line. It IS a kids show.

    I'm conflicted though. I don't understand if these guys really are this pitiful, if this is an avenue where they can all be equally social awkward, or just done ironically.

    Yeah but this is pretty extreme. I mean, grown men watching and giggling with joy to bright colors of cartoon ponies frolicking around with little girly voices? Something is not right there man.

    In the teenage and twenties age groups, I'm sure there would be a majority who would not say it is a normal thing to do. I realize everyone has their own thing, but at what point do we start shame? I draw the line at this.

    I definitely agree, I think it's amazing that this many grown men/women glorify something like this.

    I don't find that true at all, I watch adventure time, and my 8 year old brother watches adventure time. It's a mutual show we can both enjoy because it's not restricted/directed to one age group or gender.

    The people who try to read into it is what I was getting at. A lot of people want to sit there and say 'huh its so deep, cause like, its a post-apocalyptic universe man'. Yeah its neat and all, but the show itself is kinda meh. I can enjoy it, but its just really copy paste in terms of humor.'

    When do we start shaming 25 years olds for playing video games and not having serious business jobs? You are trying to say that because you feel its weird, that EVERYONE needs to feel its weird. WBC does the same shit with their misinterpretations of the bible. If someone enjoys something, let them be.

    They enjoy something? Thats not right? These are regular people who have a slightly different taste (well a lot of them are regular, some of them are pretty messed up). The same can be said about anything. Harry Potter is about witches and wizards and little boys flying around on brooms. Yet nobody seems to think that is weird or strange. Go figure.

    Alright, so by the logic kiddie porn is okay too right? The demographic is to female children, not grown men. That's my point.

    No. Because one thing hurts a party, and the other doesnt. MLP fans are not hurting anyone by liking a TV show. Pedophiles are setting up children who dont know any better for emotional scarring.

    Video games were once a thing for the socially awkward, but nowadays? It's a medium of entertainment just like television is. There are different types of games. If a cult following among teenage boys and twenty-something year old men develops around a game clearly not targeted at their demographic (read: every DS shovelware title marketed at young girls), then they'll be open to ostracism too. A Madden player is not going to be criticized the way a WoW player might. Should there be shame for people for watching nightly news since that's a form of television? No, because it's not that abnormal.

    Do I think that those who silently enjoy the show and don't publicly advertise their fandom should be be shamed outright? No, it's the incredibly vocal minority (the most annoying) that should face some form of social rejection.

    Considering everyone is continuing to miss my point of 'They enjoy a fucking TV show, are not hurting anyone in the process, and are perfectly happy with themselves' Ill just consider the fact that empty minded 'look at me, im cool because I like things everyone else does, and anyone who doesnt deserves to get shamed' will continue to further hold back the progression of humans acting like respectable creatures.

    I fail to see how someone liking a TV show is such a big deal. And if you are saying that because a vocal minority exists, all other followers of a certain activity should be disregarded, you are pretty much just an idiot. If you dont like it, ffs dont watch it. Shaming people because they have a different opinion on what fun is is flat out stupid.

    Damn this should be in the debate section..

    i don't get why people get so worked up about it and wanna bash someone else for watching a show..

    I can understand if they try to push the show onto you and all this bull shit.. but if you don't like a show, no ones forcing you to watch it.. let them if they like it, who really cares? not hurting anyone..

    Lehsyrus you are making a big deal out of something so small

    to each there own..

    I think I'm more along the lines in agreement with what Paladin said in this post. I don't really MIND it, I just don't understand why people would enjoy it considering it's targeted demographic. However I find it extremely peculiar for grown ass men wearing shirts with little cartoon ponies that say "LOVE" or "HAPPINESS" or whatever it is they say on it, and publicize their extremely large quantities of plush ponies all over the place. I mean, I love Halo but you don't see me wearing a full MC suit everywhere I go, so I think I'm more along the lines of despising the obsessing culture behind it moreso than the enjoyment people derive from the show.

    You dont have to understand why, and frankly, you probably dont want to know why. The fact is, is that people want to outright bully someone for liking something different. Despite the fact that the thing the person likes is probably one of the most harmless things to like. People can take it too far, but that can be said about literally everything.

    Good, let's end it on that note. I'll just repeat what I've said for a recap: Most of society already criticizes bronies (regardless of what I've said, it happens, deal with it), I don't think it should stop because I don't support them, and as for the vocal minority?

    They're the obnoxious bronies, the ones who go out of their way to express themselves by dropping references everywhere that no one else understands, trying to get everyone to be a fan, and the ones who don't understand that the rest of us have no interest. Over the water cooler at work? We're talking about current news and our lives, they're trying to tell us about their favorite equestrian. My dislike for bronies is mostly this small, vocal minority.

    So when I see one of these bronies? I'll just tell them it's a little girls' show and move on while they claim anyone can like it.
