However most people just look at My Little Pony, and remember that the old stuff was girly and horrible and assume “Friendship is Magic” is girly and horrible, even though it’s plotline is great, and it has well developed characters.

Some people let their stuckup and intolerant beliefs influence their actions (Christians, Republicans ETC.)

It is not girly, its demographic is children and it is not well made. The fanbase community is full of grown men and nazi like idiots. It most certainly does not have a good plotline, it is confusing and stereotypical for its type of show, the characters are generic and do not have, well, character, ha.

Some people let their stuck-up intolerant beliefs and ignorance get to them, denying anyone not caring or not enjoying what they do get put down. (Muslims, Atheists, Liberals, Progressives, etc.)

The name, obviously. And while it may not be related in terms of what you like about the show, it is certainly related in that it’s a merchandise tie-in.

That is pretty much the show in a nutshell.

I’m afraid we’ll have to agree to disagree, first that Caprica is even deserving of being called a prequel (it was more like some hideous alternate history that BSG fans need to just blank out of their minds), second that Star Wars was either ‘great’ or had hidden ethical claims (the lightside/darkside split morality was quite blatant and nonsensical). But I do agree that most, if not all Scifi, is pretentious. Firefly might have been an exception, once, but the movie screwed that all to hell. Still, there’s a limit to how much pretentiousness is OK before it becomes intolerable, and Caprica maxed that out within the first half a dozen episodes.

I do agree that the Firefly movie seemed more heavy handed in tone than the episodes, although I enjoyed them both.

The only reason I was saying that Star Wars had hidden ethical claims (maybe hidden is the wrong word; subtle is better) is that Lucas was trying to integrate a mix of all religions—from Christianity to Buddhism and atheism. The result is a complex commentary.

Also, in the prequels, things started off pretty lighthearted, and towards the end of ROTS the galaxy had pretty much gone to shit. This was reflected in the lighting—they started out literally “lighter” and were using more black and red tones towards the end to reflect this, and I think the attention to detail on these matters was pretty cool.

Don’t know what to say about Caprica; it had a different feel than BSG, but it was supposed to. I think the acting by everyone, especially Eric Stoltz, was stellar. I am still wondering if Lacy Rand was supposed to be the prototype they used for Number Six in BSG. My husband suggested that and I don’t think they said one way or the other. Do you know?

Okay, which My Little Pony series are you talking about again? Also, how do you know oh, so much about the show to say what it is?

That is pretty much the show in a nutshell.

Again, you’re mixing up generations, it’s true that the name is My Little Pony, but that’s the same with all of Hasbro’s other creations, and yes the older generations tried to pack in as many ponies as possible just to advertise how “many” there are, but other than background characters (which can’t really be avoided in just about every show) they don’t show a lot of different characters, and the ones that are shown still have a significance to the plot.

@Tenco, you are an idiot if you don’t know that I speak of the current generation. I don’t like the show, please do not attempt to type a persuasive paragraph about why its character development works.

The same can be said (to an extent) about anti-bronies… Well, maybe just the first part.

Why are we arguing about My Little Ponies anyway? It’s not like it’s a controversial political issue. This should be a fun discussion thread.

It’s because it’s SD… (and trolls anti-brony hate)

Frankly, before I read this thread, I had no opinion about bronies, or even knowledge. Now that I have though, I hate the bronie culture purely to spite them.

Basically, I think tenco over here is overcompensating for the fact that it’s a little girl’s show, by denouncing everybody who doesn’t want to watch a little girl’s show (or call it something else to make him feel better) as ‘intolerant’ or ‘trolling’. I mean, let’s face it…you’re the guy who brought politics (of all things) into the thread.

Brony* /Grammar Nazi.

Now this happens surprisingly often, someone just finds out that there’s a whole sub-culture devoted to something that is a little girls show; Now, I’m actually speaking from experience, and I can also guess that you probably have a different perspective on this than what I wrote.

Basically, I think tenco over here is overcompensating for the fact that it’s a little girl’s show,

Alright, I’ll say it, it’s a little girls show; I like a show meant for little girls, but that doesn’t automatically mean that the show is bad, it’s actually very good to a lot of people (See: the brony fanbase.)

by denouncing everybody who doesn’t want to watch a little girl’s show (or call it something else to make him feel better) as ‘intolerant’ or ‘trolling’.

Now now, this is no time to make a generalization.

I was just saying that he was probably trolling (as well as anti-bronies when this thread started) because of the wording of his posts, in that they sound purposefully hate/rage inducing, hence trolling. As for intolerant/ignorant…Well, again, it’s the wording and how the description (to someone who’s seen the show and maybe has a neutral opinion) has many incorrect, or at least exaggerated, satements.

I mean, let’s face it…you’re the guy who brought politics (of all things) into the thread.

Wait, I did? I thought that was Goober saying bringing that stuff here, and I thought I just said that it could extend to a more general sense.

I never said anyone was intolerant or trolling out of do not liking the series. If anything, all I believe is that people are intolerant or trolling out of automatically assuming the series are bad before they even watched it, and go on making assumptions in the whole brony community based in one or two idiots. Exactly like you just did.

I admit, when I first read the title of the series, and found out that there were so many guys around that liked it, my first thought was: You gotta be kidding me. It didnt helped the fact that this happened in OT, and( Sorry, my bronies and OTers friends ), well, they kept pony spamming, talking about how the power of friendship would conquer all, and overral, annoiyng me, the back then a anti brony. Until that, one day, I was extremely bored, and out of sheer curiosity, decided to watch the series… Now, this is just my opinion, but… Well, as I described in one of my previous posts, once you get used to the fact that it is a show about colorfull ponies, it is pretty good.

Now, I wont pretend it is a manly show, but it is a fact that it DID appealed to all demographics. Even if it was meant for little kids, and in fact, even if it has everything for a 4 years old girl like it, nobody can deny the fact that it spreaded way beyond its originally intended demography. And, even if it DO is a girly show, and even if I DO am watching a girly show, quite frankly, **** you, for that doesnt affect you in any level, and it is not in your right to claim you know my entire personality better then I do based in one single aspect of my life.

I don’t care about the show at all, but bronies are out of control.

They spam pony pics everywhere and post pony memes all the time. If you tell them to stop spamming, they accuse you of “trolling” and being an “anti-brony”.

They also draw porn of the show and then claim “not ALL of us draw porn only 1%!!”

Bronies are a combination of the children who spam internet memes everywhere and furries who are in denial of their animal love being sexual.

I wasn’t talking about you, was I? No, I wasn’t, or I’d have mentioned you by name. And that makes the rest of your rant against me irrelevant.

Frankly, the fact that you went off on me as though it were a personal attack (or even directed at you at all) just confirms what goobler, me, and now caaaaw have been saying: brony defenders are fucking crazy. EPR seems less crazy, so long as we avoid the question of whether ponies/unicorn things have souls.

I used to think it was mostly perverts who watched it but the male audience is big enough and has been around long enough to alleviate most concerns that the infatuation is seeded in bestiality or misdirected pedophilia. They are just adolescent boys who are really enthusiastic about cartoon ponies struggling to learn the meaning of friendship.

The only problem I have is that the bronies and fillies seem to want to post that shit everywhere. At least the MLP thread is actually used in OT.

Okay, let me just say this, if you go to OT you’ll find out that Caaawww is a troll who’s an alt of “Mafefe” and he uses sarcasm and hyperboles as often as we use a, an, or the. (personally, I think that goober is at least a pseudo-troll due to the way he makes his posts.)

90% of the time those are just the tards in the community, who would have been annoying if they were fans of anything else.

Well, in all fairness, the occasional picture does get out, and there are MLP arguments outside of the thread, but almost all of the time that’s started by a flamboyant anti-brony.

Not too out of the ordinary that you would agree with that.

…What? I’m pointing fingers at you, who’s “telling the truth,” and some “other” who you haven’t specified?

I think it’s annoying, and am quite surprised it’s still as prominent as it still is. But, what can you do;everything will go by smoother if we all learn to cope with them until it all (hopefully) blows over.

I simply do not like the show or the fans, but I will tolerate it. It’s like if a bunch of kids came on here with an addiction to Jersey shore and acted like people from that show. Of course, anyone who does not like the show would get annoyed of them.

This is as far as I go with this topic. I don’t want to be involved in some stupid online debate, I just want to voice my opinion.

Okay, though you will probably be asked why you don’t like the show, and what (if any) episodes you have seen.

It’s like if a bunch of kids came on here with an addiction to Jersey shore and acted like people from that show.

It’s sort of like that, the only differences being:

1. It’s a good show, and appeals to a lot of people.
2. (I’ve said this before) Only the tards of the (or any) community do that, which makes them stand out more and be the “majority.”

Of course, anyone who does not like the show would get annoyed of them.

However, at least it’s contained in most situations.

This is as far as I go with this topic. I don’t want to be involved in some stupid online debate, I just want to voice my opinion.

Bronies aren’t the type bunch that “just let things be” when they think that it’s faulty, well, maybe just the tards. (again)

I’m sorry, but you have to explain why it isn’t good? What do you not like about the plotline? What’s so confusing about it?

And how are bronies “Nazi like idiots.”?
