I'm only halfway through but there is so much gold.... oh my god one of the guys told the tween to "grow up"
Military guys watching this stuff doesn't surprise me at all.
My best friend in high school joined the Navy when he was 18 and was in for six years. When he went in he was a certified badass trained in mui tai, had a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, had a 351w 85 mustang vert that we built using parts from the salvage yard which we painted gold and put in tiger stripe faux-fur upholstry, and had so many women we used to call him 'Shaft Jr' and the "Chocolate Dynamo"
When he came back to visit on leave two years later he had a goddamn Yu-Gi-Oh! deck.
Two years after than he had about seven World of Warcraft accounts.
Two years after that he showed off his LARP gear.
After he got out he got rid of all that stuff, bought a black Escalade with 40" rims and hooked up with a chunky white woman with a big butt.
Livin' the dream.
I've posted a lot of LJs about the guys I served with - furries, juggalos, btards, Magic players, WoW addicts, lolicon enthusiasts, and that one guy who was silent for three whole months, then, when he finally opened up, would only ever talk about the anime Fate/stay Night. I mean, literally. He would walk up to random people on post and ask "Have you ever heard of Fate/stay Night?", then launch into a five minute, glassy eyed barrage of undilited realtime autism, whether you wanted him to or not, before stopping abruptly and wandering off before his poor confused mark could reply. I met his brother once, and apparently that was the only way he knew how to communicate at home, too. There was a Wiccan LARPer who showered so infrequently his skin was falling off, a porn store worker who loved Harry Potter macrophilia fiction, and an otherkin who actually got the chaplainry to officially recognize his religion, so he could wear his fox medallion during those times when jewelry other than religious ornamentation (ie crucifixes) was forbidden.
But no bronies.
We probably would have sock partied any bronies.
Nerd indoctrination in the military is the new Jimmy Buffet. There was a time every single person I knew who signed up went in listening to metal and came out listening to Jimmy Buffet.
This is not an improvement, just different is all.

Did Fluttershy just murder a bear?
This idea that maleness has to be policed is fucking stupid. If you should feel ashamed of anything, it's that you're afraid of girl cooties.
hypocrites*, autocomplete sucks.
The porn is actually a very small segment of the fandom. It's much smaller than you'd expect, particularly when you compare it to the furry fandom.
At least, that's what I've heard from someone that isn't either but is exposed to this stuff through work.
- I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO PROVE TO YOU = I think I have a lot to prove to everybody but never will
- it's a video supposedly about how manly military bronies are yet the scrawny guy rants about the evils of testosterone or whatever - though what is "manliness" in these nerds minds isn't true masculinity but a grotesque, simplified, cartoonish version of it that nerds embrace, of the "FUCK YEAH THIS IS AWESOME LIKE JUGGLING FIVE FLAMING AXES AND THEN GETTING INTO A FISTFIGHT WITH A GRIZZLY BEAR AND THEN EATING A POUND OF BACON WITH A BOTTLE OF VODKA WHOOOOO" variety.
Zoot has some very extensive opinions about people who like this funny horse cartoon. He has thought long and hard about them and feels it is important that you know what they are.
Why, yes, I do think it's perfectly reasonable to compare watching a humorous TV cartoon to looking at borderline child pornography in public, thank you.
And since you asked, I also agree that there is nothing unreasonable about saying that Michael Bay's latest film is exactly as bad as the Holocaust.
This hot dog I am eating is terrible. Exactly as terrible as 9/11.
Not the watching the humorous cartoon part.
The self-made pornography and sexualization of the humorous cartoon part, and then demanding you accept it as being normal.
I'm sorry about your hot dog.
No lie about the furry fandom.
When I was in college I took a course titled "Classical Archaeology". One day we were assigned to map out a mock dig-site with building mock-ups and faux artifacts ect. We chose to do a temple ruin similar to the Hephaestion temple.
The two women who I was partnered with on the project for the most part just sat there and drew anthomorphic foxes with huge dicks shooting jizz at each other in their notebooks. They even drew a temple frieze with a full-on furry gangbang and submitted it along with the project against my protests.
Most memorable class presentation EVER.
For a little while I wanted to try writing a book or short story about some sort of dark brony-style character, but then I remembered Child of God.
Once again it's not the idea of liking a show for little girls, it's the bigotry of the fans and their sexual fixation with underaged horses.
I don't care if men watch My Little Pony. I've never watched it myself, and it may very well actually be the best show ever. Hell, when I was younger I used to watch the powepuff girls every now and then on Cartoon Network.
But the bottom line is when you become obsessive, and fetishize child-like cartoon horses, I'm going to laugh at you.
If you get butthurt about it, I'm going to laugh harder.
Yeah, okay. Every fandom on the internet produces mountains of porn, for everything from Star Wars to The Simpsons to Pikachu, but let's fixate on this one and pretend it's unique. Hey, it's something to do.
I don't know what sort of voodoo curse they put on this cartoon to make it drive the entire internet into hysterics, but it's working like a charm.
Pony 'Rule 34' unique? Not so much anymore, no. Sad and worthy of ridicule? Woah yeah. You see the issue isn't even that it's shocking. The issue is that the material has become so voluminous to the point that some people are making themselves believe that what they're doing is normative.
You pose an excellent question actually. What voodoo curse?
A challenge to perceived gender roles?
With regard to the porn/slash fanfics, a perversion of positive early childhood memories?
The idea of grown men skulking around the girls toy aisle leering at little girls who get too close to their prized pony toys?
Now keep in mind that I'm not attacking all Bronies, and I'm not posting on this topic because I have any particular malice toward them.
I'm posting here because I'm a sad, lonely man. *sob*
The war is over, Doomstein. The bronies won. We fought the good fight, no one can say that we didn't, but after Cena got infected the outcome was inevitable. It's time to move on now; time to leave your island outpost, time see the brave new world the pony cloppers have built over the ashes of the old.
It's time to come home.
Lest we forget the true face of evil.

oh god the embarrassing defensiveness of them all is hard to watch
|Rodents of Unusual Size - 2012-12-27 |
I haven't seen a brony video in probably over a year. I deliberately stay away from them, and I made it to 2:10 before bailing. You win again, POE.
|Xenocide - 2012-12-27 |
I just want a video where a marine wearing a Rainbow Dash tshirt sits down and tells us about the time he fired an RPG at an Afghan boy's head and watched it explode like an overripe cantaloupe. Then he leads the choir in a rendition of The Winter Wrap Up song and tries not to break down crying.
Ponies are the extra "P" in "PPTSD."

Reacting to reactions video.
And we're reacting to the reaction to the reactions video.
John Holmes Motherfucker
If these guys are into the bronie thing, I'd loove for them to explain it to me. Instead we have clueless teens with no insight, and fans pointing out that they have no clue. The whole structure seems contrived to prevent anyone from learning anything
Here ya go.
A Brony explaining Brony culture in exhaustive detail.

I'm burning my Marine Corps uniforms and throwing my medals at the Pentagon to protest that these guys are still serving.
Real Marines would not be into this at all.
Maybe Army soldiers, or airment, certainly sailors... but not Marines.
Must be a different USMC than when I got out... we were still winning in Iraq then.
I wish I could personally show this video to General Mattis so I could watch his heart break.
It's like they're trying to point to these guys as examples: "See, not all bronies are creepy manchildren, some of them are in the military DEFENDING YOU FROM THE TERR'ISTS a-a-a-and, they're like really tough and stuff" like these guys are supposed to be a bunch of operators constantly out on the knife edge of danger, you know instead of the lowest rungs of paper-pushers and IT dorks.
I'd hate to think this was the last thing he'd seen.
All I could imagine when I discovered these were Marines was R. Lee Ermey giving each of them the vocal tear-down of their entire short lives.
Maybe they don't just don't get sarcasm. "Gunny said we were little pink princesses who qualified at playing with our dollies. Gunny was right about everything!"

MARINE CORPS! NAVY!
Norwegian Cyber Command.
|Stopheles - 2012-12-29 |
The two blond guys (one in jean jacket, one with glasses) sound EXACTLY like theater nerds I knew in high school, down to the speech patterns and zingers.
Don't ask, bronies. And for the love of God, don't TELL.

"How DARE you call our obsession with a show for little girls effeminate? You might want to talk to...THE MOUSTACHED BEAR WHOSE GAZE TURNS BOYS INTO MEN!"
