I am proud of your son.

By  A100893  |  30

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.)

Op, you should be more proud than ashamed. Your son likes something that is viewed as being controversial, as the show is for girls. But he is willing to stand up for this. Not many people would do that in today's society.

8- yes! Me too. I had some when I was little and I had a doll house where I put the ponies and my stuffed cats:) Yeah I was pretty weird. I really hated dolls. Still do haha


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.

Uh, I watched cartoons dedicatedly for years until I was 16, maybe not that type but still, I'm a completely functioning person. Some people just have different interests in what they want to watch, it's not like it'll be forever.

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

113- most people probably started liking it to "be unique and stand out," then more and more people started doing the same thing and BAM, there's your fan base. What do they call them? Non-conformist conformists, they ruin it for everybody else.

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.

  vocaloidtiger  |  12

As a mother, who probably doesn't know about the crap that goes on and all the things we obsess over in our twisted teenage world, OP probably doesn't even know what a Brony is, or that it's considered awesome to be a Brony.

Bronies are an obsessive love for the my little pony show they are sorta like furry's but focused on one show and if you don't know what furry's are they have a love for animal like people and are very nice people.

By "pre-ordering", I honestly thought it was on iTunes. Since that's the only way I know to receive the "next season" (assuming he meant season 3.) If he actually meant somewhere on online where the use of a credit card is necessary, then I made an error.

  BIGBOY4rmAHM  |  19

No where in the post does it say this was a man, just saying.

Tell your son to pre-order it himself. If he wants to play those games then he should be a man and face the consequences of his actions. (I.E. Getting beat up by other teens.)

Actually, there's plenty of men from their mid teens to their late twenties who are into the show. Since when is being secure enough to be into whatever the fuck you enjoy a sign of homosexuality?
