Well, if he gets himself off watching cartoons for young children, might as well refer him to The Legend of Korra and ATLA since those actually have deeper meaning than 'friendship and love', in my own, unimportant opinion. Of course, it's fine if your into that kind of stuff.
Check the kid for Asperger's syndrome. I notice a lot of obsessive fans show many signs of it. Take this from a fan.
Yeah, that whole "love and tolerance" thing went out the window pretty quickly, once people actually started criticizing the show and its fanbase. And I've noticed that a lot of bronies display signs of autism as well, in fact one of my good friends is autistic and LOVES the show.
That's because your comment is both offensive to Bronies and people with Aspergers. Unless you actually know the people have Aspergers, you can't actually say they have it. But I agree with 15, no one really cares about "love and tolerance" anymore. I thought it was a stupid meme and I'm glad it died.
Pretty much everyone will display some autistic tendencies. It's a scale syndrome meaning we're all somewhere on the scale, it's just how far up the scale you are that determines if you need diagnosing/help. Also whilst obsessiveness is an ASD trait it doesn't mean that everyone who is obsessive has Aspergers (similarly, it's possible to have Aspergers and not be that obsessive). I think it's pretty sad how everyone has to jump to labelling with ASD or ADHD whenever a kid is that little bit different or active. Early diagnosis is good but rushed/lazy/incorrect diagnosis can really screw up a child.
No, Yousuck24, it was not an offensive comment. All he said was "a lot of bronies display signs of Aspergers". Unless you consider either being a brony or having Aspergers to be a terrible thing, the comment is in no way insulting to bronies OR people with Aspergers. It's merely an observation.
I think the fandom died the moment people started using the term brony in a non ironical way. The show is great, but I loathe the fandom. And no, don't start telling me that 'not all bronies are like this!!!' because you've already ruined it for so many people. e_e
I love My Little Pony. My sister, who's 8, and I love watching it together.(there's ten years between us). The childish content makes any day bearable. I also collect the ponies. And I do not have Asperger's syndrome. I'm a misanthrope with selective mutism. 118- I personally started watching because they're adorable. Not because I wanted to be different.

Better than a 51-year old begging to pre-order it, I guess. (Let your son enjoy the sunshine, true friendship and happiness. There's not enough of that left in the real world.)
If it comforts you that's just an internet thing. Your son is just a sheep/pony/herd anim not a complete nutter.
see this is why discipline needs to be enforced. otherwise young lads become sissys ytdi. be a man and beat his ass
Question his sexuality! Most 15 year old boys are interested in way different things than that.
