It doesn't. It can't. People judge based on the cartoons.

Goddamn bronies, learn to use words.

I never made that, but what it's trying to say is how it's unfair that one person is judged for watching a certain cartoon made for young people is judged as misogynistic, a pedophile etc. While fans of a cartoon made for the same demographic are never seen in that light whatsoever. You have communities on UG that are dedicated for Spongebob (that was originally intended for kids of the same age bracket) that are passed off as not being repressed manchildren, meanwhile you have the same people on UG jump on the bandwagon about MLP.

But anyway, i do kinda find it be cute and rebellious how you defy all logic like that.

The difference is MLP is considered a "girl show".

Powerpuff Girls was a girly show and nobody had a problem with that.

Because it's a nostalgia factor, you're not just watching a kid's cartoon out of the blue.

MLP is nostalgic because it's done in the same artstyle of the Powerpuff Girls and it's overall written with similar messages.

And does watching a TV show for 15 years really give people the excuse to watch cartoons? I'm a 25 year old man, but because i've been watching Barney since i was 3, i'm allowed to watch it and everyone will accept me.

I don't see how having a punch or kick in each show as opposed to only a few episodes a season gives it the moral grounding that grown men are allowed to watch it.

But then again, trying to give logic and reason to a bandwagon is like throwing a tennis ball at a tank.

before i say this i will let you know i have nothing against MLP or anyone who wants to watch it.
if you are going to pull the nostagia factor you should remember that MLP was marketed for a long time for young girls. whereas superheroes (like PPG) was marketed towards boys. it could be this factor which subconsciously causes people to think it is weird for older people, especially males, to like MLP.
just my opinion.

Barbie. The result: GI Joe.

Lol, if it wasn't around you can't be nostalgic about it.

It's just more understandable, for an adult to go back and watch Dexter's Lab or Powerpuff Girls or Rugrats or other shows actually related to cherished childhood memories, than to start watching a totally new show marketed towards little kids when you're a man in your 20s. It's revisiting a childhood mindset vs. actually trying to recreate and prolong it, which is weird.

Yes you can. You can say that a certain aspect of a new cartoon is nostalgic because it reminds you of a cartoon from your past.

I generally don't care what people watch. There are shows I think shouldn't be watched, but I don't make a distinction between genders.

but once there was G.I. joe did they still buy Barbies?

and if Barbie had such a male demand why did they make G.I. Joe if barbie was doing so well?

ah, well i dont want to debate this, people watch what they want and its nobody's business, besides their own, unless they are being forced to watch alongside.

Nah. They bought Hotwheels because they're the shit.

But really, what you're saying isn't my point. My point is that the concept of the ownership of dolls (once seen as a predominately girly thing) evolved into a concept that boys started to enjoy.

now that i think about it G.I. Joe had a lot of accessories like boots and guns and different clothes and vehicles, just like Barbie. i never had any G.I. Joes (i always asked for books during Christmas) but my friend had a lot, and i never played with them either. we had more fun throwing rocks at things like trains and cats and bridges.

Same. The most memorable thing i had was an 'Action Man working parachute' (which i pronounced walking parachute because that's what the ads sounded like ). Action Man is basically GI Joe with a different name. I would go over to my friends house and make obstacle courses with his corpse on my Scalextric track.

You know, I watched that pony show one time. Everyone's all like, "oh if you're gonna complain about it, at least watch it first" and so I watched a couple of episodes. It was probably one of the worst things I've ever seen. It's like it tries as hard as it possibly can to be funny, but completely fails, making for a very awkward experience. The characters are also pretty shit, all terribly uninteresting and flat. The whole premise of the show is really just taking PPG and FHfIF and milking that formula (and they were both only mediocre at best to begin with) as much as possible but with even poorer delivery.

Basically the show is genuinely bad, regardless of how annoying the fanbase is.

How is anyone hating on it for being girly? TS asked for things men shouldn't watch on TV. No person should watch that show. Men are people.

And interestingly enough, I can't think of a single girl I know in real life that likes the show, myself included, but I can think of plenty of guys that like it.

Man i thought the original premise of this thread was dumb but then it became an argument about bronies.

Seriously, it's a girly cartoon about the most stereotypical girly thing (colorful ponies) ever, and you wonder why people find grown men watching it weird. You just gon have to deal with it.
