| Bronies are okay, they're just alienated by the shows our demographic gushes over (Family Guy, Buffy etc.), because those shows are mostly unstructured collages of disparate concepts, they like a nice simple show for once: "it's about ponies in pony land and friendship is magic, enjoy!"|
Anyway, there's nothing wrong with liking kids TV in general, but Regular Show > My Little Pony.
I see your reasoning but I just don't buy it. As a show aimed at six year old girls - how can it possibly have any appeal to a fully matured, male mind? The mind of men is conditioned from childhood not to react to ponies and vivid colours in the same manner as a girl, it's also the reason men and boys don't call themselves 'princesses' and have an unwarranted sense of entitlement.
Men are molded in societies image of masculinity - I refuse to believe that any man would actually watch a show like this and seriously buy into the message of 'friendship' it apparently espouses.
I can only accept men watching it because they are sexually attracted to the characters - that is the only possible reason I can see for a man enjoying the show.
I've seen an episode and honestly it isn't really that childish or asinine. The only thing that jumped out at me was how simple and straight forward and plot and dialogue was and I assume that's what is attractive about it.
Also people tend not to develop a subculture around a fetish. You'd feel really awkward when you lose your hard on.

| What about female ''bronies'' (they're called Ponies/Pegasisters IIRC)? Do you think they're sexually attracted to the characters too? |
Women are raised to buy into that bullsh*t, so they like the show because they've been conditioned to be overly emotional, sentimental dimwits. Don't believe me? Well, just look how many girls are surrounded by pink, surrounded by images of Disney princess characters, Barbie, sh*t like that. And all of it with the same hokey 'You're special' message.
Given the influences they're exposed as children, they have far more reason to buy into a show about flying ponies.
But that doesn't explain why they watch a children's
show, considering most of them are in their early twenties. Moreover, in terms of interests women tend to be pretty much the same as men by that point in their lives.
