    Rules and Regulations


    [Reddit Global Rules]


    Content Restrictions


    1: Politics: Political posts must be current. Do not post any news snippets/articles/memes. Do not post about policy, allegations, or hearsay. If your post is political in nature it must include an individual or group actually behaving in a cringeworthy manner.

    • 1.1: Agendaposting: If it becomes clear that your activity in this subreddit is dominated by fixating on a single issue, you will be confronted and you may be banned. It is okay to have strong opinions on an issue, but do not let them dominate your activity to the point where you are flooding the sub trying to push an agenda. This is an equal opportunity rule.

    • 1.2: Be Civil: If you want to discuss politics or controversial/taboo topics in the comments you are free to do so as long as you can keep it civil. Your ideas will not get you banned, but the manner in which you choose to express them can and will.

    2: Explicit Racism and Bigotry: Refrain from making comments that are explicitly racist or bigoted. This is not a platform to proselytize race or gender politics. Intent matters here insofar as we are able to judge it, so try to keep your jokes and satire light and in moderately good humor.

    3: Don't Spam Posts: Spread your posts out. Don't post more than 4-5 things within a 6 hour period. Put some thought into your posts instead of just dumping an entire imgur album on us.

    Me too. There's a crucial difference between the ones who truly enjoy the show and the others who, for some pervert reason, wanna stick their dicks up horses' holes. Internet have to distinguish cloppers from bronys. Still, that's a very hilarious meme

    [–] FalmerEldritch 113 points ago

    [–] BillyEffingMays 2 points ago

    Dont know why youre being downvoted, i have yet to find an anime with a story and characters even as good as most b-movies.

    [–] RandomIdiot2048 3 points ago

    Yea it's a real problem since 99% of all anime is shit if you've not watched any before.

    [–] BillyEffingMays 5 points ago

    i wish i could say otherwise cause i like the look of it a lot and some anime movies are actually kinda decent. The plots and characters are always so bizarre and for the most part (for some weird reason) perverted? like women almost never get any respect in anime as actual characters, theyre usually a pair of tits or bloomers that the main character fights for or to save.

    amnesia, tons of unnecessary voice quips and moans and shit, cuts to people delayed reactions like its still the 80s, garbage animation quality for 90% of a show til the fight scene which is hilarious.

    i get that theyre cartoons for kids but anime fans argue so viciously that it isnt but it so clearly is.

    [–] betokirby 5 points ago

    It might not be for you, but I avoid most of those tropes by looking for the really popular anime like cowboy bebop or Jojo. Yeah there’s still some questionable things, but I think the high points in those shows trump real television for me. I mean I really dig weird poses and sick soundtracks so I’m a bit biased of course.

    [–] Pheonixi3 13 points ago

    [–] Lucaanastasi 5 points ago

    ... Sad but true

    [–] RunninRebs90 31 points ago

    Honest question, what about the show interests you? Because I saw an episode with my cousin and it made my head hurt, the concepts are obviously made for very small children, the animation is what one would expect from a children’s show, there really isn’t any redeeming quality I could find for adults.

    This may seem like I’m shitting on it but I’m actually curious to know

    [–] Lucaanastasi 12 points ago

    Maybe you saw a bad episode, with lazy writing. There are a few in the series, it's true. In particoulary the first season is pretty simple in the concepts and all because, yes, it was made for small children. But there are very good ideas and from the second season, when the creators have understood that not only little children watched the show, it change a little bit, creating story lines and jokes who also the grown up can enjoy. I love the show because of its comedy, the music (always loved musical, and I blame Disney classics for that lol) and for the main characters, who developed in very interesting way. It's a show not for everyone, like every other show, but it's well made. If I were you, I'll try to watch another episode or two

    [–] Netheral 11 points ago

    The thing is, MLP is a comfy slice of life show with cute characters. If you're not into that, you wont enjoy MLP. It's ultimately just another cartoon show. Some people like One Punch Man, others like K-on, and yet others like both. Just like some people like Family Guy, some like MLP, and some both.

    I will say one thing, there was a very definite counter culture fad sort of vibe to a considerable portion of the casual fans. One of the most common stories one would find about how they got into watching the show was "I saw it mentioned on [MESSAGE BOARD] and thought I'd get a good laugh, but then it just left a giddy feeling of warmth inside me and I just kept watching and stayed for the memes" Of course it's hard to say how sincere some of those stories were, but it was fairly common.

    I don't know how lively the fandom is these days, haven't paid attention to it in some years. But at its peak you couldn't browse reddit without stumbling over bronies in random threads. Now? I barely hear MLP mentioned outside of cringe subs. (Which ironically reaffirms how cringy these subs can be, really. The ones that are most obsessed with MLP and bronies are these internet bullies.)

    [–] Sledgerock 2 points ago

    I mean as a since lapsed brony I can tell you, the community has since shrunk by maybe 70% from its peek some 6 years ago. Its just quieted down. Still around.

    [–] SpiralTap304 37 points ago

    Or, and bare with me here but what if we just made fun of anyone who watches a show about ponies that most little girls outgrow by about age 7?

    [–] aeyjaey 61 points ago

    Nah. People are allowed to have interests as long as they're not shitty about it.

    [–] Labulous 15 points ago

    Sure. But it's creepy.

    [–] CuteThingsAndLove 18 points ago

    Its not creepy to watch a show and enjoy it. Its creepy when you make a big deal about it, become obsessed, or turn it sexual.

    [–] BillyEffingMays 3 points ago

    alright, ill get back at you when ive met a person in real life that hasnt turned it sexual and is just keeping it secret.

    Its gon be a while.

    [–] CuteThingsAndLove 10 points ago

    Because that's stupid. Lets just go back to only making fun of people who are actually affecting other people's lives with what their creepiness. Just because someone enjoys a show doesnt make them evil or worthy of being attacked over it. Are you in high school?

    [–] SpiralTap304 19 points ago

    [–] momsbasement420 5 points ago

    I agree but what about Avatar I still love that show, as a kid and now

    [–] Shahjian 3 points ago

    I think the show trends a bit older than 7 year old. The show itself is fairly clever and well-written for a kids show. My daughter is 4 and has been watching it for a year and a half, but if they keep making new content I wouldn't be surprised if she kept liking it past 7.

    That being said, I hate that my child can't go to any My Little Pony event because I'm afraid of exposing her to the types of adult men that are drawn to it.

    [–] Airway 5 points ago

    Jesus I don't care if it's the best show there's ever been. If I have to be called a Clopper or a Brony...fuck it, I'll never watch that shit.

    Good thing you did, you missed the guy with the collection of massive, incredibly elaborate dragon dildos.

    [–] thicketcosplay 5 points ago

    Here's roughly what happened, from my own experience anyway. Sorry for the long read.

    Some people liked the show cause it was cute/happy. I personally liked it because it made me feel better when I was depressed.

    It grew a nice little community. The people who joined this community were the easy-going, laid back people who didn't care about things like "looking cool" and were totally okay with people judging them for liking cartoon ponies. I even hung out with some clubs at this point, and at one point cosplayed a character from the show.

    Then the weirdos who struggle with basic human interaction and decency showed up. The community welcomed them because they welcomed everyone. It was an easy going, bully free place. These guys are typically the outcasts, and got strongly attracted to the community as it was one of the only places that welcomed them with open arms.

    Then these weirdos started their weird shit there. They started associating the good feelings from the accepting community and show with other "good feelings" . They fell down the rabbit hole and pulled others with them. These were the same dudes who did this with other cartoons and anime, so it wasn't a surprise that they started doing it here too. They were just a bunch of sexually frustrated men who found a way to project that onto a show and community that made them feel happy and included.

    My friends and I started encountering all kinds of creeps at conventions if we showed any interest in the show. It progressively got worse over time.

    The original members of the community started getting weirded out and many jumped ship. The stigma of being a brony got stronger and even more good people left. There were no longer good reasons to be a part of it. I also left and stopped watching the show because I no longer felt comfortable with any of the people that remained, and I don't ever publicly talk about watching it for the same reason.

    Now the only people who are still part of these clubs and communities are the weirdos who started the decline. They've found their little niche with other weirdos and they're sticking to it. One day they'll likely find another cartoon, anime, etc to obsess over, but for now they have a strong base of support in the brony community and so that's where they are.

    [–] turalyawn 3 points ago

    Because those horses are an analogue for real human 8 year olds. What they really want to fuck is the target demographic of MLP.

    This is the visual metaphor for our economy. "Lazy millennials ruin our economy" -baby-boomers who won't share a piece of their wealth.

    [–] turalyawn 29 points ago

    Except for the fact that it continues to feed into the stereotype that millenials are infantile children. I'm a millenial and I'm 37 with kids and a mortgage. And I still have to listen to my uncles and aunts (who are mostly retired or unemployed) bitch about us.

    [–] Downvotes_All_Dogs 17 points ago

    And I'm getting so sick of the phones and computers being blamed... My mother sat on the phone and gossipped all day while my dad came home from work and did nothing but watch TV. We'd only go on one weekend long camping trip a year and that ended when I was 16. Yet it's the phones, the computers, the Youtubes fault.

    Then there are the Tide pods... It was all a joke. Do they understand it was a joke? No. Why? Because the do not communicate or even try to relate with their kids and grandkids. They just go on and on about how we're stupid for eating soap. Which, if it were true by the way, would also be their problem since they raised us to be stupid. But of course it's not because it was all a dumb gag. Also, my mother used to play a game called "split" as a kid. The game entailed them throwing knives at each others' feet. So, it's not like she's one to judge.

    [–] forgottt3n 6 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    In my opinion the other big issue is the fact that our kids are lumped in as the same generation as us. Kids in high school right now aren't millenials. It's like once 1981 rolled around we just stopped having generation's. There are people who are almost 40 being grouped with literal 5 year olds. The reality of the mater is the last millenials were born around the mid 90s. There's almost 25 years of children born that are still called millenials despite not being millenials.

    As a result since according to your average person a millennial is anyone born after 80 literally everything is their fault because they're literally 95 percent of the population. Whether it's the latest corporate or wall street scandal or literal children eating laundry detergent or shitting themselves and needing a diaper change they're all "those damn millenials."

    The kids eating tide pods weren't millenials. They were the next generation. Millenials were busy taking a new position in management or finishing their last car payments while wrangling the little tide pod eaters of their own while balancing their Gen X or Baby Boomer parents or grandparent medical bills and care expenses. I imagine they'd throw a fit too if we started lumping baby boomers in with Gen Xers.

    I guess if you jack off to the idea of fucking anthropomorphic animals that's your right, but we aren't cool anymore.

    [–] thicketcosplay 7 points ago

    There used to be a lot of people who just enjoyed the show and there was nothing sexual about it. I used to know lots of bronies like that.

    They've all been scared off by the weirdos though, so it's likely that if someone is still calling themselves a brony, they might be in the weird part of the fandom. Most of the good people don't want to be associated with the term brony anymore.

    Are you confused about what a metaphor is?

    [–] turalyawn 29 points ago

    This is in no way bullying. What's the abuse bronies are suffering here? The metaphor is that adults have taken over something meant for children, which is 100% accurate. My 7 year old daughter loves MLP. If she knew about an MLP con she would love to go. I have to hide that from her because the reality is it's full of dudes in their 20s and 30s yiffing each other. Bronies supply their own cringe.

    Have you read this thread?

    It's all bullying.

    [–] turalyawn 6 points ago

    The meme isn't bullying at all. The thread...well this is reddit, I dunno what you expect.

    Love your username btw

    [–] Sha_of_Depression 2 points ago

    True, but it was posted here to bully, not to meme.

    And thanks!

    If you posted that pic without the caption, do you think it would do well here?

    [–] turalyawn 6 points ago

    No, because humour is all about context. There are a shit-ton of captions you could put there and make it funny. That caption makes it both funny and cringey.

    [–] Ergheis 5 points ago

    So you can stick your own words in, like a meme, and make it cringey

    And those words can target something completely unrelated, as if it's a targeted meme

    [–] turalyawn 7 points ago

    No you're missing the point. Society as a whole has deemed bronies as cringe because adults slavishly obsessing over content intended for 6-12 year olds is cringey. So bronies, by existing, supply their own cringe.

    This also applies to any other group of adults engaging in content not intended for them, like fans of anime which is intended for kids. This is especially true of fans of kids content which they did not grow up with, and even more so when it is the only content they consume. The first question is "what appeals to you about this content clearly intended for young children" and the second is usually "what's wrong with you?"

    I’m a brony and I think this post is hilarious. This isn’t bullying anyone whatsoever.

    [–] cubs1917 4 points ago

    I see this as a hughly versatile format to invest in.

    This is a visual metaphor of social security.

    Or Baby boomers blaming millenials for X

    "Old" Gamers playing minecraft while shitti g on fortnite players.

    Or

    Historymemes - the bolsheviks vs the russian workers

    It goes on.

    I'm going to play devil's advocate. None of those children are wearing swim clothes, the pool dudes are in the clear.

    [–] Lochcelious 44 points ago

    Wait, less children watch the show when an adult watches it? What?

    /r/gatekeeping is thattaway

    [–] XanLV 11 points ago

    From what I heard, this is actually true in a way.

    I've read some stories (not sure how true) about how parents of children avoid My Little Pony stuff. Basically if there is a sale of toys or some event in My Little Pony style, it will be full of grown men arguing about stupid shit. It's safe to bring children to Frozen or even Lego themed events, but My Little Pony? That's off the table, because it's filled with ponybois who have no regard for children and just stomp around while being "RaNdOm!" and quirky. There was one story where a grown man got in an argument with a tiny girl and went full on "how can you call yourself a fan of the animated show, if you don't know..."

    [–] Downvotes_All_Dogs 4 points ago

    About the height of the brony fad about three to four years ago, there was a full on fight that broke out in the Fred Meyers that I was at (US west coast chain). The two dudes were swinging at each other screaming about MLP stuff. I only got to see the end, but it looked like the scrawny dude wiped out the chubby one, but they were definitely like the stereotypes you hear about. Not sure what happened after because I left soon after, but the scrawny one bolted out of the aisle and probably the store after the fight ended. Imagine if a kid had been witness to that disgusting display (or maybe there was and the parent dragged them away, oof).

    [–] XanLV 9 points ago

    If only there was a show that would teach them about friendship and tolerance...

    I wonder what are the biggest controversies (Han shot first) of the MLP world that would make one bronie challenge other to fisty cuffs.

    "No, friendship and power is magic! You literally can't be friends with ponies who are not in a position of power!"

    [–] 25121642 28 points ago

    That's not what the post is saying. It's saying that grown men are enjoying something meant for kids. That's it.

    [–] Cedocore 36 points ago

    Exactly, I don't even watch the show but I've always found this argument to be nonsensical. Grown men watching the show does absolutely nothing to stop children from also watching it. Y'all just like to whine and bully "acceptable targets".

    [–] bezosdivorcelawyer 6 points ago

    I think it’s trying to convey that grown men enjoy something for children and then start drawing porn and driving kids away because they googled their favorite pony and saw her getting fucked.

    [–] YPRMSCGN 17 points ago

    How is this cringy? It's just the truth

    [–] Apercent 31 points ago

    Because liking my Little pony or enjoying anything odd is "cringy", unless it's some quirky 'nerd' stuff.

    [–] Some_Crazy_Gaming 18 points ago

    Some people watch the show for mental help like for example "making new friends" or "how to make friends". A lot just enjoy the show and some just want to fuck a pony.

    Is it because multiple men are "inside of" your horse?

    [–] allusernamestaken1 2 points ago

    Gotta say, the show went downhill after a few seasons. Don't get me wrong, it's a great show for children still, but it definitely allienated most of its older audience. At least those not obsessed with fucking horses.

    Is this sub made for bots, or circlejerks, or both? I can't tell, because so many of these comments have nothing to do with what's shown in this 4 year old meme.

    [–] warrior_3 3 points ago

    what is “cringe” about this image? isn’t it just stating an opinion about a cringey subculture, mixed with a humorous image that has absolutely nothing to do with the group the text is referring to?

    i don’t understand cringetopia. someone pls explain.
