The Talking Absol

I tend to fandom-hop a lot, so expect a lot of that.

I also really LOVE design and advertising! Don't even get me started.
Look at the things I like

Wendy’s is doing the same thing.

Will wonders never cease.

Reblogging this because it keeps showing up on my dash and I keep not-quite raining on the parade, but it seems like everyone thinks this means something different than it does, so I guess I’ll rain on it a little bit.

I’m afraid this motion has nothing to do with conquering the gender binary or whatever Tumblr is really happy about to be reblogging it so heavily. It’s not about making little children feel like they can get whichever toy they prefer. It’d be nice if it was, but I’d be shocked if that was the case.

No, the girl toy here is a My Little Pony. Which means that the *real* reason for this notice is that a bunch of bronies, as there are bajillions of photos and videos of them doing, are coming into fast food restaurants and buying several happy meals. They threw pissy fits when asked if they wanted the “boy or girl” toy, insisting that My Little Pony isn’t for girls or whatever, again, only saying this because of overwhelming evidence that bronies do this shit. Management eventually has enough of it, asks employees to just ask if people want Skylanders or My Little Pony so they won’t have any more disgusted bronies getting mad that their precious fandom is targeted at crappy dumb little girls.

So the short version is: this little paper unfortunately means the exact opposite of what you think it means, socially speaking. It was put up because grown-ass men get all pissy when it’s suggested that they like a thing for girls.

Proof: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2014/04/editorial-how-to-buy-mcdonalds-ponies.html <— this was posted on the net’s biggest brony hive on April 10, 2014. So yeah, this is sadly not about anything else but how awful bronies are, sorry.

Oh, ew.

I’m very disappointed but honestly not surprised.

My boyfriend works at a comic book shop, and he’ll get bronies asking where the My Little Pony comics are and when he tells them they’re in the children’s section they get all pissy about it.

It’s okay to like something that’s not aimed at your demographic, but you need to accept the fact that you’re not the target demographic and stop demanding that everything needs to be catered towards you!

My brother and I talked about this yesterday. 

The need for bronies, who have already appropriated themselves onto something that wasn’t intended for them, to justify the fact that they’re interested in a show is really appalling. Not only do they outright ignore the concept of demographics, but they’re willing to ignore key points about the thing that they like in order to tell themselves and other people that they’re not weird for liking it, because heaven forbid that a show about magical ponies ever be considered girly.

There’s a difference between liking something regardless of societal expectations and distorting something to meet the personal needs of a subset of people. When bronies try to do the former, it almost always ends up as the latter.

PETA is disgusting and I strongly encourage my vegan and vegetarian followers not to eat or buy quinoa =|

Wow, that’s not even close to an argument.  That’s just a very very poor attempt at derailing.
