I have never heard of this before. I can’t say it would “gross” me out, but I’d give a strong side-eye whilst walking away.

Indifferent.

Seems like their business, to me, and like they’re not hurting anyone.

ummm where is this happening? I have NEVER met a grown man that has even spoken of My Little Pony less yet loves it. I also dont know any men that are obsessed with cartoons at all.

Since I dont know of any I guess I dont care if there are men out there with this obsession.

Never heard I this. But I doesn’t effect me, or others… so it doesn’t bother me.

Never heard of this before. I’d seriously side eye any man who admitted this aloud. My Little Ponies is for little girls. Grown men liking them is just wrong and vaguely pedo (in my opinion).

Supposedly, they’re doing it slightly tongue-in-cheek, but mainly to show that they want to “regain a sense of innocence/sincerity” …. i.e., rebelling from the selfish, cynical, apathetic modern world, and faking the stereotype of being a “super burly manly man urrrgggg!”

They are not necessarily effeminate men/boys, and they don’t necessarily take it at literally as they profess to. It’s just their effort to not be confined to what they see as a dead end role for them, and keep their idenitiy undefined by others/flexible to be whatever they will choose. The reason they profess to take it literally is to be more “in your face” about their rebellion from identity restriction, that is, “I can like it if I want to, what’s wrong with that?”

Since this is about “the right to choose their own identity,” it’s therefore almost always men/boys in their teens or early 20s.

If it grosses you out, I would suggest you ask yourself, what are you assuming about them? And do you have any evidence that that is true?

WTH? I am GLAD I have never heard of this. My DH knows what My Little Pony ONLY because I call our cat (Milo) Milo Pony, cause it sounds so similar. Now DH calls him Milo, or Pony but he does not WATCH My Little Pony.
