Usually I screen-print Y!A stuff, but this is a bit long and I’d prefer the text to be searchable, Just In Case.
The question: “Is it weird to like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic?”
Short answer: Maybe. But here’s the rest of it:
I would prefer a woman to answer this.
I am a 21 year old male, but I am not overweight or jobless. I am worried however that it is weird for me to like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I don’t own toys or merchandise from the show. I take it as it is: an entertaining cartoon much like Bugs Bunny or Sponge-bob (before it started to suck). Will women think it’s weird if they find out? I try to hide that part of my life.
Let me make it perfectly clear that I do not obsess about the show or anything. If it is on, I watch it. But I don’t go out looking for a DVD collection.
Not being a woman, I’m not going to answer this poor fellow directly, but I’ll say this much:
(1) I can cite no instance where a woman who might have been interested in me suddenly lost interest after discovering my own involvement with pony which, in most cases, takes about 45 seconds to a minute.
(2) Buy a plushie. It’s not a guaranteed key to her heart, but you might be able to wedge the door open.
Incidentally, one of the Office Babes (Senior Division) showed up yesterday in a pony T-shirt, and a Generation Three MLP:FiM is Generation Four pony T-shirt, at that. There’s always the possibility that the object of your affections has already been assimilated into the herd.
