    I don't question their sexuality just the amount of brain matter they have.

    I watched an episode and there's no jokes. It's not like actual good cartoons where older fans can appreciate some of the more inappropriate jokes that fly over their heads as children or something that can relate to a broader audience. It's shit animation with jokes clearly aimed at dumb kids.

    Also they basically take "puns" as a whole and completely screw them in the pooper. You can only replace "person" or "body" with "pony" oh so many times before it's not funny. The amount of times before it gets unfunny is zero because it's JUST REPLACING WORDS.

    I think the joke is that it's not funny, which is by far the most hipster emo shit I've heard of. In fact, the only memes people post for MLP is just other memes but with MLP characters in them.

    MLP fans should be sent to the glue factory.

    I was going to object, then I realized half your name alludes to a pony and giggled at the slightly cruel coincidence. Then I re-read your quote and realized that as a confused angsty teenager, it's hardly a weird thing to either have your sexuality questioned by myself or others.

    @Guild McCommunist : not all bronies like the appended "pony" verbs. I can imagine most probably don't. In fact, I even hate the fuck out of them, and I'd be creeped out and take umbrage to not being recognized as a human beingon a basic un-retarded level.

    On the general criticism you have, I can't really tell anyone to change their minds or disprove them anyhow. I simply lack the time and resources to either incentivise you or criticise. But I can tell you something: You could probably direct a similar kind of criticism to fanbases with a similar sort of core demographic, namely one like Harry Potter. It's a fandom that has:
    • Fan music (Just get the soundtracks, nothing will be on par with the dfndom)
    • Fan art (OH GOD THE ACID IN MY EYES)
    • Fan works, including non-canon literature (even worse, really)
    • Fanimation (unbearable at best)
    • Non-canon and fan-made games (no comments...)
    • Discussion boards just like this one with the intent of socializing the HP-fans (meet all the silly creeps here!)
    Sounds awfully similar to something, doesn't it?

    Friendship is Magic is simply a repetition of the history of fandom. In this case, the information age has taken a whole new flare to the meaning of fandom, obviously.

    I'm all for negative opinions towards towards anything for any reason.

    I just full-on hate furries, and everything about it. So just to be fair, I expect to be treated the same for my pony spreading.

    Damn furries. Also Nightmare Moon... Mare is used as a pun. Fucking brilliant!

    Though you're right. MLP is not funny. Or atleast its not smart comedy. Glancing over that epic Star Wars scene recreated in season 2, theres just no reason to like My Little Pony on an intelectual level. Its not smart, its not funny, its not funny-smart. But it is adorable as hell, andI can see the non-creepy bronies in the world being people who watch terrible anime with adorable super-moe characters. Yes I know theres no plot in Lucky Star, but I still love Konata and cast to pieces. I also always pick the cute females in fighting games (Fucking Touhou), in Mario Kart I was always Peach, until Rosalina joined, and now I'm always Peach or Rosalina. I just like adorable things. I also like disembowling centaurs in God of War 3, but I still like cutesy patootsey stuff. So it comes to no surprise that I'd be attracted to the vibrantly animated Friendship is Magic, and its adorble cast. I mean just look at Fluttershy, fucking adorable. There are many better shows than My Little Pony, I admit, but how great is it that a show so innocent and innoffensive manages to piss off so many people?
