LOVE this quote from The Unlikely Origins Of The Brony, Or Bros Who Like ‘My Little Pony’ on Jezebel:

The Hub has embraced Bronies in it’s marketing, and hopefully other executives are taking note. They key to a successful children’s program isn’t churning out increasingly stereotyped shows in which girls pretend to be princesses and frolic with woodland creatures while boys fight and play with cars (or fight with robots that turn into cars). Men aren’t allergic to everything aimed at women, and with interesting characters and plots (and a dose of ’80s nostalgia) people of all ages, and genders, are likely to become fans.
