Aaron, don't get me wrong, I'm not decrying bronies- I just don't understand bronies.


One difference between bronies and fans of Star Trek or any other example of fandom is that Star Trek's target audience wasn't 2-11yo girls. I'm not aware of any other fanbase that is so large, and so far off from the target audience like the adult MLP fanbase.[/quote]

I really don't see the issue here.  But then, I'm used to watching cartoons, and I know I'm not the "target audience".  It's likely that most bronies are of the same mindset.


Quote
Another notable difference is thought-forming. Angus here isn't the first in trying to create a pony tulpa- there's a massive online community doing this, and it can't be found anywhere close to this extent in any other adult fanbase.


I am... aware of this thing.  It's something I try to ignore.


Quote
Lastly, the adult MLP fanbase has a rather large pony porn community, which other shows aimed toward children seem to lack. And I can't help but think many of these 20-ish year old males are creating female ponies to have imaginary sex with. *shrug* But all these differences set the brony movement apart from other adult fanbases.

Well, porn exists for anything you can imagine, and I've seen porn communities for other shows aimed toward children.  This sort of thing used to freak me out (this was around 10-12 years ago), though now, I just accept that some people have a twisted imagination.


Quote
Edit: Aaron, maybe I am decrying the extreme side of the fanbase. I'll have to think on it and get back to you.

It's been my experience that any and all fandoms will have their extreme sides.  In this case, I'd say that part of it is relative youth (both the age of the fandom and age of the fans).  I can only suggust stearing away from the wacky elements and just deal with those that are more down-to-earth. (which is what I tend to do)
Being a Christian, I've made my decision. That decision offers no compromise; therefore, I'm closed to anything else.

Bronies creep me out.  I find them to be seriously mentally defective.  Like, pedophile defective.  But that is just an emotional reaction. 

I don't have a good argument.  In fact, I have no argument at all.  I like other cartoons and I acknowledge that often times shows that target kids can also have adult appeal.  Case in point - the Muppet Show.  Or Samurai Jack.  Or any of the other shows I like.  And I cannot articulate how mlp is any different.  Except that it feels different, and bronies are creeps.

This is the fundamental difference imo. You like shows that allow you reminsice on your past. Most people enjoy a good bit of nostalgia from time to time.

That is true,  but I'd like to think it's also because those shows holds up to some extent.


Quote
As far as I can tell the bronies embraces MLP as part of their present. This i just don't understand.

There are cartoons written for adults, the simpsons being one of them - http://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2013/sep/22/the-simpsons-secret-formula-maths-simon-singh
i can understand adults getting into that show.

Again though, the demographic for MLP is young girls. I just don't get the appeal for adults.

Well, the show is fun, the characters are likeable, it's (usually) well-written, and it manages to get its messages across without being schmaltzy.  Same reason why anyone would like a show.  Maybe 'cute' doesn't appeal to you?  I guess it depends on how much 'cute and colorful' is to your liking.

I don't equate disney films with brony stuff. Do you go to conventions dressed like this?



If I'm gonna have passion for something, it will not be cartoon animals or plastic dolls. I have no ability to understand how someone, as an adult, can join in such a fad.

Isn't it nice to know that I'm close minded about something? That makes me normal.

I've been to conventions in the past where people dressed up as many a thing. Doesn't make a difference. However, I never dressed up, rarely as a kid for even Halloween. Not my schtick. But I don't look down on others for it.

Aside from that one guy in a wig, that picture is pretty restrained.

I can agree that dressing up as a pony is a little silly, but I can't see it as much different than when someone dresses up as a Klingon, or as Spider-Man.  Or for that matter, when someone goes to a football game, half-naked and covered in body paint.

Actually, Alexis was originally not going to be a pony...
She decided to do it... *sigh*

Never watched My Little Pony ... I'm too old for that.

As a kid though (and I mean ages 5-10 or so) ... I did enjoy some cartoons intended for girls like Rainbow Bright & She-Ra.

Actually ... come to think of it ... as a teenager I was into 'Sailor Moon'. Note, that I had a younger sister aged about 9-10 at the time who was watching that and that's how I got into it.

I do also ave a daughter who is nearly 11 now so I watch / have watched some awesome cartoons like:

SpongeBob
Phineas & Ferb
Fish Hooks
Gravity Falls

But they're not "for girls", specifically.
The truth doesn't give a shit about our feelings.

I see 7 sex offenders and two women who have likely spent the last 6 months chained to a cot in a basement.  That picture makes my skin crawl.

I would not say you are a creep, but between your bronieism and tulpa fixation you definitely have a high creep index.  Many young men below the age of 20 have high creep indicies because they just do.  They sometimes mature out of it.

They're sex offenders just because they watch a little girl cartoon?  This is the sort of comment that's so 'out there', that I really don't know what to say.

Well, aside from that it reminds me of how some people say that, by definition, homosexuals are pedophiles.  Do you consider that to be true?  Because I really don't see how this comment is any different.

The instinctive revulsion that some folks have for adult males liking MLP is possibly due to the association the show has with little girls.
It goes as follows; you like things that little girls like ergo you also like little girls, not in the good way.
Adult males dressing as ponies, talking about ponies, having pony websites and images is, i think unconsciously, linked with the "do you want to see some puppies" type peado.

I'm not saying you are a peado A&A, in fact I will go as far to say I'm as sure as I can be (having never met you IRL) you're not. But if you were a peado, what type of image would you have on, say, a facebook profile pic?
