What on earth

Posted 05-13-2013 at 03:25 AM by Strike Witch
So uh, you know that My Little Pony fad?



Looks like Hasbro is taking their brand in a bold new direction in an attempt to excise the creepy furries or whatever.

(actually it's to do with moving into a new market, the domain of girls' dolls like barbie and bratz- traditionally, Hasbro hasn't really been very popular in that area)

But yeah, this is some odd flash-animation to look at, but I guess it's already been focus-tested on little girls.

The real fun will be the fandom meltdown.

I'll be passing around shot guns, powdered drinks, and canned food to anyone who wants them. The apocalypse is here. Also, nobody notices she has purple skin in the human world? And is twilight sparkle a common name in humans? I don't think so. The only good thing about this is that it might end bronies, because it looks like they're in the human world permanently.

I didn't even watch the video and I feel mortified. Though I don't really watch the show as is, I am pretty sure that this can only be inferior and creepy.

What I love is how hypocritical they're being. "Don't knock it until you watch it"-every brony ever. "Don't hate on a show because you don't understand it"-every brony ever "OMG this new show looks terrible OMG ill never watch it until i die!"- most bronies

Pretty much. There is much wailing and gnashing of teeth, apparently.

It doesn't seem that bad, actually. But haven't they just copied the My Little Human YouTube show?

Basically, the other bronies are fearing for their lives, they know this is going to be terrible, and I agree. The difference is, I undersand that this film is aimed at little girls, so of course it's going to be shit. MLP was a family show, this isn't, and it will be awful, but it wom't at all ruin our enjoyment of the main show. Anybody who is butthurt about this should grow the fuck up. Also, they're remaining the same colour as to avoid giving them actual races. It's just hasbro being sneaky.
Strike Witch, this is not a fad, it's been going on a little long for that. It's like calling anime a fad.

When Hasbro first mentioned the idea, the fan response was resoundingly negative, but they went ahead and did it anyway. Maybe this is their attempt to kill off the current fandom and reaffirm themselves with the intended demographic.

Or perhaps they're aiming for the opposite effect; humanizing pony characters so even more neckbeards trawling the waifu market can get on board.

I don't know anymore.

Doesn't it just? As a prepubescent girl, I really feel that they understand me with the typical high school setting and the obvious reference to how the nerdy kids can overcome the popular and bitchy girls who make fun of my small boobs.

Exactly, if there aren't prepubescent boobs involved, I don't want to know.

Nepsotic just went and proved my point with his first post. P.S. Nepsotic, can you inagine a normal american family sitting down to watch "Teh Fwendshipp Show With teh Horseses" Unless it's a lesbian family with only young girl children that are all Pony fans (which isn't a normal family). tl;dr Nepsotic is always wrong when he talks about MLP

No, FiM was designed in a way that the family can watch.it with the younger sister or whatever. That's the point, of course the older gens weren't. Christ, it isn't rocket science.
Jbot, you stupid twat, shut the fuck up and grow some hair on your balls before attempting to insult me, please.

So now you're being homophobic on a mostly gay forum, and you're doing it in a way that makes you look like an illiterate fucktard.

I don't watch the damn show and even I know FiM was meant to be more of a family show. That's what caught most of the current bronies off guard in the first place. "It's a show about ponies made for little girls so WHY IS IT SO GOOD???"

I'm so sick of all the highschool based everything ever that ends up on TV. They always suck and are overflowing with horrible cliches and are just overall bad. I'd take magical ponies and shit over cartoon highschool drama any day.

Does your dad beat you or did he rape you when you were little?

It's okay, you can tell us. We won't judge.

There are more non-lesbian families in the world than there are lesbian, so it isn't a usual family, especially with all girl children and everyone in the family is a fan of MLP. It's just not something you see often. I'm not homophobic. My family supports gay rights, thanks.
@Plushnuts No, he murdered me and I am dead. I'll be coming to haunt and/or posses you, and slowly drive everyone you love to suicide. Unless you sacrifice a goat.

Just because your family does, doesn't mean you do.
Don't push your ignorance on the rest of us thanks.
After all, like Nep said, this is a mostly gay forum.
To be so prejudiced isn't 'normal' either.
Everyone else here seems to understand that.

In fact, it's not difficult to fit in without being all 'edgy'.
Such behaviour simply makes you look like an idiot.

Aggravating people just makes them hate you, not like you.

For fuck's sake, would it be so hard for you to grow the fuck up
a little?
Generally speaking, people learn to be civil before joining a forum.

But I do. I was implying lesbian families with all girl children that are all fans of ponies are a not normal family. sheeeeesh! Aggravating people is not intended to make them like me, as I have previously explained several times. In fact, you are only encouraging me. I do not have to grow up because a person on the internet told me to. I intend to enjoy my childhood until I become an adult. You people being angry at me only causes a repetitive, neverending cycle where the result is always further amuesment for me. I am not trying to be "edgy". Acting like an idiot only amuses me more with your angry responses. When I am not discussing Oddworld, you guys are all just pawns in my little game. I do want you all to know that I am in no way prejudiced against People of African or British DNA, in fact I have several friends that are African or British. I am not homophobic, and I am a supporter of rights to all sexual orientations. All that said, making you butt chickens angry has become less and less satisfying, and I will stop if I can control myself. I will probably go back to my offensive self involuntarily at times, and feel free to cuss me out if I do. But in this comments section I was just trying to make a point and became overly stupid and caused a few misunderstandings that could have been easily avoided. I was not implying that there is anything wrong with being homosexual, I was implying that a lesbian family is unusual with the specifications that I mentioned.

Who says that's not normal? Kid, I know you're 11 and all, but small mindedness is still inexcusable. Trust an ex-Catholic on that one, you'll look back at yourself in a few years time and cringe at the very thought of the things you used to say.
