Because teenage boys are DRAMATICALLY more familiar with pop-culture than fashion culture? Not a lot of Vogue readers in the brony ranks, I expect.

I would not have included myself in the category of "bronies", until I saw this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-P3HHpf-fZY

Someone may have already posted that somewhere in this thread, but I don't have the time to read 35 pages to make sure.

Anyway, it makes me want to watch the show, 'cause it looks badass. I guess that makes me a pseudo-brony.

I think only guys are supposed to feel ashamed about reading Vogue.

See, girls who read Vogue are usually high maintenance, and that would totally blow my cred as a low maintenance. But I used blow all my spending money on the fashion week issues when I was younger.


note: I own/wear absolutely nothing that could be considred couture.

My mom just came and talked to me about watching My Little Pony. She seemed very worried about it.

Sorry if this has already been discussed (I haven't read the whole thread)

What mental age would you say the ponies are? They don't live with their parents. Some of them have businesses and responsibilities. Yet if you compare Twilight to the Princess, for example, Twilight is obviously not fully mature (still talking mentally). All of them are still learning, like to goof off and can be irresponsible at times.

To me that pegs them at around late teens, early twenties, with some (Twilight, Apple Jack) being obviously more mature than others (Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie).

If the ponies are representative of girls (or really, people in general) at that age, would that somewhat explain the bronyism?

Also Tapir12, I think that Celestia is a bad comparison since we know that she is at least 1000 years old (thats when she banished Luna) Considering Nightmare Moon looked more like Celestia size wise in comparison to Luna I think that when the royal family have their full powers they're bigger with extra long lifespans.
I think all the Mane 6 are out of their teens I'd put them in their mid 20's, considering Twilight is basically a grad student and the others have business and career goals that are just starting up that about matches up.

Yeah, I've clearly thought about this more than was necessary, but Twilight is a obviously a grad student. Rarity runs a successful business. Apple Jack has had the time to run off to the big city, find herself, and come home. Fluttershy is Ponyville's equivalent of a veterinarian. Rainbow Dash went to school and then got a job, but also competes in her free time. Pinkie Pie had a rough childhood, but got a job at a bakery in the city.

They're clearly all in their twenties, assuming we're correlating them to humans. Yes, their parents are bigger and more mature, but hell, there are plenty of my peers who feel that way. They aren't kids anymore, but they are still learning, so they don't see themselves as adults yet. Seriously, do you think anyone other than Twilight pays their property taxes? Unlikely.

I doubt she even does that. She's allowed to stay in the library, which I'm assuming is/was a public institution.

Celestia, you bitch!

I realized two things the other day:

1) only 3.5 months to more ponies

2) I have a running countdown to more ponies in my head.

You know what I like to eat when I'm watching MLP?

Just kidding, theses things are creepy and taste weird. But still, MLP in MY supermarket? Its more common than you think.
I don't have a lot of friends, just my fans. And they are all I need.

Who is this Rainbow Dash of whom you speak?
