I knew I'd heard of this somewhere before. Should have realised it would have been on DiS.
It's not so much that it's a cartoon aimed at girls (each to his/her own), but more that it's aimed at children. If these men are watching a kids show and enjoying it without any hint of irony, then I think they've probably not got to grips with being adults. Either that or they're just a bunch of fuckin weirdos.
i mean, its no adventure time or regular show is it?
I don't really understand why anyone gives a fuck what other people watch for fun.
To the point that he recently got paid by a website for a 20,000 word fanfiction piece...
Not got to grips with being an adult? Or is he a weirdo?
another option could be "very canny".
but as Brusma suggests, seeing as he was unemployed at the time it was probably a wise thing to do, and conversely a lesser waste of his time than sitting around playing computer games.
I like kids cartoons about ponies
And a homosexual obviously
It's about all I remember though. Don't recall the cartoon at all.
I thought this was some late 80s nostalgia fest.
they just get relaunched every five years or so for a new generation
But a brilliant one at that.
"This feels like my initiation, in a wonderful way. This is like fuel to me. It's energized me and has enriched my life and my soul. It confirms the best hopes I ever had for humanity."
so fuck you all
What I do know is that Buttercup has been stood on my TV for the best part of a decade.
Now, can someone re-post that photo of the IRL grown up Penny Crayon pls?
whut. i thought all bronies were male. hence the 'bro' part, y'know.
why am i even reading and commenting on this
whereas x-men, batman etc are aimed at teens, young adults and actual adults depending on which version it is?
captain america was killing nazis way back. I think your facts are based on cynicism and arching your eyebrow, rather than research.
wiki on cap america #1:
Captain America Comics #1 — cover-dated March 1941 and on sale in December 1940, a year before the attack on Pearl Harbor, but a full year into World War II — showed the protagonist punching Nazi leader Adolf Hitler in the jaw; it sold nearly one million copies. While most readers responded favorably to the comic, some took objection. Simon noted, "When the first issue came out we got a lot of... threatening letters and hate mail. Some people really opposed what Cap stood for." The threats, which included menacing groups of people loitering out on the street outside of the offices, proved so serious that police protection was posted with Mayor Fiorello La Guardia personally contacting Simon and Kirby to give his support.
wiki on my little pony cartoon episode 1:
Friendship Is Magic takes place in the land of Equestria, populated by varieties of ponies (including variants of Pegasus and unicorn), along with numbers of other sentient and non-sentient creatures. The central character is Twilight Sparkle, a unicorn pony sent by her mentor Princess Celestia, ruler of Equestria, to the town of Ponyville to study the magic of friendship.
can't believe i got trolled so hard :(
i agree with you. But I believe that the complexities of life very much straddle children and adult interests via comic books, and that an extremely basic concept of horse magic friendship doesn't, which is why it's exceedingly odd for adults to find the program so watchable.
someone call Sir Jimmy
/weren't comics originally aimed at children
but became more popular with teenagers and then adults as a result of the increasing numbers of developmentally-stunted man-children?/
i was saying: no, you're dead wrong. and you are...so it's all good.
Good work, adult. x
It's the button to push. Like you and your feminism thingy
but many titles are currently written explictly for an older audience whereas My Little Pony is for children
I'd like to see an early teen ingest some of the philosphical concepts that are in Ghost in the Shell.
if you discount the themes covered within each and blindly compare the two as having similar morals, concepts and connections to the real world.
but as the program is aimed at girls or boys who are a) young and enjoy b) ponies and by the looks of it rainbows and magic, i'm going to assume no one gets killed, no one deals with adult relationships, no one deals with social anxiety and no one worries about being an outcast hunted by the law.
But i could be wrong Kitchmo, OR you could be being ridiculously steadfast to a point that you bloody well know is silly!
are any less worthy of adult attention than let's say, themes of friendship and the aesthetics of horses and rainbows.
glad to clear this up for you, baby.
it's supposed to be a unicorn or some shit, but it's definately a my little pony.
no it isnt actually
Also without comment
*strides out of thread*
Yeah, no-one thinks that comics are exclusively for D&D playing virgins any more.
My level 23 bard got with a tavern wench at the "ogres head" yesterday <3
