Re: “My Little Brony

I will agree that a parent should be aware when a man is speaking with their child, yet not because he is in the girl's toy section. This article implies that toy sections with an overabundance of pink are somehow sacred ground where the Y chromosome should not trespass.

Yet if a girl where to literally reach across the aisle and grab a Power Ranger or Transformer, would you snatch her back and say, "No! Those are for boys!"

If females are encouraged to break away from gender roles, then males should be allowed the same. A parent always has the duty to be aware, yet there is no inherent "ick" factor beyond your own bias.

That's ok, women and girls can have their spaces. But that means massive tits in my video games, and if you feel creeped out, GTFO my vija games and back to the pink isle.

Re: “My Little Brony

*Sigh* Its one of these again. Listen your making your judgments based on that bronies are weird, and they are. However this hits all the points of a typical brony rant rather than seeing what is positive about our fandom you just bash it. Listen, I think you should hang up you hat and stop 'reviewing' for a while and come back when you decide to do something constructive.

ASHLEIGH BALL has never seemed snobbish or assholish to me. Whoever wrote this blog post sounds like a jaded Social Justice Warrior.

Re: “My Little Brony

you know, I created an account JUST so I could call you out on the huge amount of STUPIDITY you have. Seriously, what the FUCK is wrong with you, how dare you say such horrible things about us bronies.

you know, normally I would love and tolerate the shit out of you, but considered you had to post an ENTIRE ARTICLE, no, I give no forgiveness to sexist haters like you.
have you even SEEN brony statistics? do you know ANYTHING about us? HAVE YOU EVEN SEEN THE SHOW?

no, of course not, because you don't do your research, because you judge entire fanbase based on a few bad apples. guess what, EVERY FANDOM HAS BAD APPLES!

and if you are truly, TRULY man enough to reply to this upon reading it, I expect an apology, because NOONE likes people like you, NOPONY wants to go to equestriadaily and be reminded that there are IGNORANT SNOBS like you out there.

GOOD DAY SIR!

Re: “My Little Brony

Whoa, seeing some hurtful responses here. I agree it's biased, but "we are really kind people" does not go well with "pull your foot out of your ass". L&T herd. L&T.

Re: “The Life Cinematic

Ugh. Just stop it with this guy already. He makes the same damn movie EVERY TIME he makes a movie.

And, too many annoying people in this town seemingly model both their insufferable personalities and atrocious style of dress after his characters.

You guys are gross.

Re: “My Little Brony

I bet you hated this documentary because of the “ew bronies are pedophiles” stereotype. This isn't even a review. It's a rant about bronies defying social stigmas set by big-named companies, such as Hasbro. This “review” is the manifestation of why I hate pop culture: They're to closed-minded to “nerdy” things. I may be a bit biased, considering I'm a pegasister (yeah, there are girl fans, too dumbass), but next time you critique something, make sure you stay on topic and not be a sexist bitch. Grow a heart.

P.S.: It's smart you used that picture. It's the only thing that supports your stereotypical opinion.

Re: “Mating Rituals of the Millennial

This movie was hilarious and pure awesome. This review, on the other hand, is an example of how criticism so often misses the point of experiencing a movie by focusing on where to place it in current pop culture. Do you have to be aware of what it means to be a hipster, the label of the moment, to feel anything more about this movie? No, it's only a distraction. Unfortunately you can hardly find a critic who doesn't feel it's necessary to make readers aware that they are fixated on all of these pointless distinctions.

Re: “Not Buying It

As a non supernatural Jonestown story, I found this quite good. The idea that Vice reporters going missing would bring the US government down on anybody is ridiculous. But the quote "they'll bring their guns," etc. is right out of Jim Jones' mouth. The Jonestown people act their parts excellently. The Vice reporters weren't great, and the ending was rushed, so it has flaws. And I wish this had been more like (his?) supernatural cult segment in VHS2.

But this movie is very cohesive. Even in House of the Devil, his best, there are many technical flaws. Why must this girl be kept alive and unharmed until the eclipse; how do they know she'll get pizza; how is the pizza delivered by their cohort with no cell phone; how does her eating a small amount poison her. This movie is probably Ti's technical best. Even though we wish it were horror maybe and not thriller.

Re: “Keep in Czech

Yes, Portland people learn about Prague and Czech Republic then come visit us. After all we just spend three weeks in Portland from Prague. :-)

San Francisco sucks anyway. Majuro is a true Hell hole. Hawaii is pretty.
