Terrifying New Trend: Grown Men Who Dig 'My Little Pony'
Breitbart ^

Posted on 04/26/2012 5:47:33 AM PDT by Perdogg

The easiest way to say it is just to say it: There are grown men out there who devote themselves to the rainbow-unicorn-sparkly-pastel fantasy world of the children’s TV show “My Little Pony.” And, more appallingly, it’s not done ironically – they are proud of it.

That’s not “My Silky Pony”, is it?

They are called Obama voters and to get all of Obama’s promises, they expect a unicorn shooting Obama money and rainbows out of its butt.

The news media carts out this ‘new’ story every time 12-18 months.

I heard of this awhile ago. Isn’t it some kind of pedophile ploy to prey upon little girls??

They are popular toys for girls aged about 2 to 8. My daughter just made a “My Little Pony” pillow for our neighbor’s 4-year-old. Iirc, we gave the same child all our Little Ponies when my girls outgrew them.

In the good old days, these grown men would have been focused on getting a job and supporting their families and not this nonsense. Its more evidence that society is breaking down. Men never mature beyond a teenage mentality and focus on this crap rather than working and being productive and supporting their families (if they even have a family).

“They expect a unicorn shooting Obama money and rainbows out of its butt.” - Nope....I believe it’s the Smurfs who do that. Just look at George Snuffleupagus on ABC news. He shoots stuff out his ass....that’s where he talks from.

This “reboot” of MLP is actually a pretty good cartoon. No, I’m not a “brony,” but I do have a 6-year-old girl who likes to watch it occasionally. It’s entertaining, the animation is decent, and the dialogue is actually pretty witty for adults. I don’t know why it’s blown up to be this huge hipster thing, but the show itself is better than most of the drek passing for cartoons nowadays. I mean, it’s no Chuck Jones-era Looney Tunes, but what else is?

Terrifying New Trend: Grown Men Who Dig 'My Little Pony'

There are also grown men[and women] who devote themselves to the recreation of actual railroads in miniature and go out in public with their overalls and engineer caps!

And grown women[and men] who find it fun to style Barbie's hair and create cool new outfits!They go out in public to meet is mass groups wearing I [heart] Barbie shirts!

GASP!

Different, yes, 'terrifying'? No. Not unless you're easily frightened.

On the flip side, people who see the strange [or to them ridiculous] things other people do shouldn't feel they have to refrain from laughing. If I saw a grown man parading down the street with a sparkly unicorn horn stuck to his head, I wouldn't be able to help myself. :-)

-----

This guy needs to chalk it up to pursuit of happiness , put his big boy shorts on, and deal with it.

Honestly, though . . . isn't it just a matter of time before a country with the means and motivation finally just figures out that except for a few places in the South, they could just land an army on the continental United States and kick the living shit out of us?

I don’t know of any men who really “dig” MLP, but I watch it with my daughters because they want me to. No big deal. They make jokes about MLP all the way through the show.

“This guy needs to chalk it up to pursuit of happiness , put his big boy shorts on, and deal with it. “

No one said it should be illegal. But a grown man being into a toy line made for little girls is a freak and shouldn’t be surprised to be looked at as one.

A big difference from being into model railroading, which some people even think is goofy too, but is far more respected.

I wonder if they ever soak their little ponies in water and then place them in the freezer. You get some pretty freaky looking ponies that way. (My kids idea. Not mine.)

Back in the eighties and nineties I used to do sci-fi illustration and went to a lot of conventions. These dudes were legion back then, too. It’s not just limited to My Little Pony, it’s any cartoon or children’s property that you can think of. (FYI this isn’t the same as Anime fandom. The majority of Anime fans are straight and at least back in my day most of them weren’t into hentai. They paid good commissions, too.) The Care Bear crew is almost to a “man” A. Gay and B. 100% sex-obsessed. I won’t describe the things these clowns asked me to draw. “Anatomically absurd”, “legally actionable” and “federal offense” will suffice to cover it. They were one of the reasons I packed up my easel (them and the KLS bois n’ hags...ewwww).

I’d actually take landing chicks to be part of the MLP appeal. Kind of the modern version of the ‘sensitive’ pony-tail guy. (No pun intended, but “pony-tale guy’?)

It’s as if in this culture non-violent, degraded virtues are only presented to little girls. Modern pony-tail guys are the ones who are strong enough to favor what our culture promoted in a more innocent era. Also, it is of course spitting in the face of the false masculine culture that says only male protagonists can be tolerated, let alone celebrated, by men.

I find it to be at least an interesting phenomenon.

Model railroading is actually pretty cool. They have some amazing layouts.

I'd be first in line to point and laugh. There is no reason someone who comes out in public in ridiculous attire shouldn't expect to be ridiculed.

I have trouble enough holding my tongue when I see people wearing pajama bottoms instead of pants at the grocery store!
