Alright so everyone gives me shit about my fetish so here I go with the thing I don't get.
So last month I bought My Little Pony: FiM season 1, I heard about the Brony thing for years and bought a brony shirt at a comic con last year because it was bad-ass looking but had never saw the show. I should start by saying that as a kid I had like 6 or 7 my little ponies, I was actually an open-minded kid playing with both boy and girl toys and not giving a damn if anyone was like "wtf?" i thought the My Little Ponies from the 80s were cool and I still do. Also i was spoiled rotten and got every toy i wanted so after getting all the he-mans and all the Super power toys I could handle the next step was "can I have some My little ponies?' and I always got a yes. I had a pretty awesome child-hood and daresay the 80's were the best time to be a child. That decade was custom-made for kids.
Anyway so I had always assumed that this new show had a fervent fan base because it was like Tiny toons or some shit. I should also say that I love animation and still buy all the Disney movies on blu-ray. I love good quality animated shows so I figured that I'd give My little pony: FIM a whirl and enjoy it.
3 episodes in and I honestly don't see how a grown man can enjoy this. I can watch any Disney movie and enjoy it. I can watch Jem and enjoy it. But see this isn't written for girls this is written for Little girls with a clear intent: Don't be selfish. The show isn't funny or clever. 3 episodes in this show is not fucking around with it's intent that it's for little girls and it wants to teach them about being a good friend. i appreciate that message but have no clue how a grown-man can become this addicted to the show.
So can someone explain it to me? I'm just gonna come out and say it...do these guys secretly want to fuck the horses or some shit? I just don't get it. I'm gonna keep watching because i bought the damn 1st season but I don't get what the appeal is unless these guys have some furry/ bestiality fetish going. I mean I went to some sites and saw people do humanized versions of the ponies to wrestle with in WWE 13. They were in skimpy clothing and had big tits. So...that's weird.
I'm not judging anyone, i just want to understand the passion that bronies have for this work. I can see how someone can mildly enjoy the show as background noise. But how the fuck does this show have it's own convention?
Well feel free to leave comments explaining this. I will continue to watch and see if i get it.
