Depends on the mare really.
Oh God, I just realized I’m going to hell…
I think they’re onto something. While the fact that MLP is just a well done show is enough to explain that it has an older audience at all, I think the fact that the whole brony thing blew up the way it did is indicative of something more. Mlp being escapism isn’t that notable, the specific kind of escapism it is is. A farm boy’s escapism consists of dream of adventure while a old soldier longs for peace. Who are we and what world do we occupy that makes us want to escape to the land of brightly colored ponies?
I think ours is a population that is tired of modernity and its thousand shades of grey, that is sick to death of the world and all its gritty realism and painful reality. We’ve grown sick of this mutated mess of a culture, of irony stacked on irony, where denying the cliche has become cliche. Mlp offers a nice break from all that, a world of simple sincerity, and that’s why people flock to it.
You know, it’s funny. I remember seeing that picture about a year ago and thinking “fucking brony faggots. What the fuck is this one’s deal anyway, did its mother get gangbanged by a box of crayons?”
Now I see it again and think “Dashie is so cute /)(^3^)(\”
(warning: May destroy faith in humanity)
Please don’t compare the minor annoyance we have to put with with our haters to what blacks had to suffer.
Don’t worry girls, Scootaloo can fly up and get that cloud and make it rain on you! Oh wait…
Uploaded an image to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
You know, I like to consider myself a witty man, always ready with some smart response or another to make the people laugh.
I stared at this image for a good 5 minutes, and I’ve got nothing.
I’m imagining what it must be like to be a little Chinese boy in the sweatshop that makes these. And I thought I hated humanity.
I thought her hoof was a giant cancerous lump sprouting out of her mid-riff.
Well, that was the best laugh I’ve had all day.
I am imressed by #12’s lack of fucks.
Pinkie Pie laughs at your feeble attempts to categorize a world that is clearly insane.
I have to believe this is a troll, for to accept the possibility that it might not be means I have to go through all the trouble of buying a gun, tracking this motherfucker down, and murder-suiciding both our asses.
Well of course she beat you dipshit, she used magic while you were apparently using your hooves.
Heh, so that’s JJ. Is it wrong of me to be disappointed that he looks exactly like I imagined? Show me a famous brony that doesn’t fit the profile of the stereotypical nerd, I want to be watching a video of bronycon and see this guy wearing a Fluttershy T-shirt.
Don’t you think the “on this site” part was a little redundent. I mean shit, we’re grown men who giggle watching pretty pink ponies dance and talk about parties. I imagine this song will become painfully appropriate the day they cancel the show.
This makes me more depressed the more I think about it, and it reveals to me that under the sunshine and rainbows on our fandom’s face, we’re a really grim lot.
Think about the psychology this picture reflects. The older mlp fandom is formed largely on escapism, on retreating from the dark world of the everyday for a more idyllic innocence represented by Equestria. This picture and its like however acknowledge that the ponies we idealize would probably be uterly disgusted by us and our various perversions. You see, that dark world we’re trying to escape is much more than a simple location in space, we carry it with us in our hearts, it is a fundamental part of who we are. We are the problem we’re trying to escape, and even if we could somehow reach that we innocent world we so desire, we would corrupt it with our touch.
This picture rings of self-hatred, fatality, and despair
Everything about this picture just screams “Ironic douche trying too hard.”
Gasp Apple Bloom was once a foal!
