MLP Won't Turn Evil Into Good by Eternities22 MLP Won't Turn Evil Into Good by Eternities22
I AM NOT REFERRING TO ALL BRONIES. JUST THE OVER-OBSESSED ONES.

Of all the many ridiculous things bronies say, this is one of the things which irks me the most: their claim that MLP:FIM is so magnificently pure and divine that it will instantly change evil into good. To a lot of bronies, the show is like the answer to world peace, uniting every individual on Earth into a love of ponies and joy.

This irks me because such claims are absolutely bonkers. If it's really the thing that'll help mankind achieve world peace, why does it have so many haters? Because not everyone enjoys this cartoon, and raving about it all the time won't turn haters into fans. The world is a very varied place, and everyone likes different things. The chances of everyone on Earth eventually watching the show and instantly loving it are impossible. It's not going to happen, because it isn't THAT good.

There are also claims that it cures depression, motivates people to do well in life, and guarantees eternal happiness. Bronies, it's a freakin' cartoon, and the messages it teaches are for KIDS. If you are seriously saying that this show actually helped you change your life for the better, then you must have had some pretty bad lives. Yes, it teaches good messages to people. But these messages are aimed at children, specifically kids who need guidance in making and keeping friends. None of the messages will have any serious effect on the world beyond that demographic.

It wouldn't have encouraged Adolf Hitler to stop having Jews killed, or convinced Osama Bin Laden not to attack New York City. It's a cartoon for kids.

This.
I mean, it's a show for kids. Guidance for kids. Not life advice for grown-ups. Yes, I do like mlp, but I also agree with this...art (sorry, didn't know what to call it).

One of the reasons why I dislike this show. It's kinda ironic since in G1 the characters didn't mind to see the villains die but that what made it so epic in my opinion.

If they want to make a cartoon for world peace they should make it realistic and a documentary to understand the point of view of every different character/person in the cartoon and tell their back story.

If that isn't one of the stupidest & most illogical things I've ever read then I don't know what does. Not to mention that its fans also start boasting about how the show taught them about friendship, respect, love, & meaningful things when that is stuff they should have learned back in--what--elementary? Even so, messages like those have been done in other, far superior shows or movies & made less cheesy or done more subtly (Miyazaki Movies, Avatar The Last Airbender)

The reason that it is in the least bit 'inspiring' is because the show was going to sell toys to little girls now matter how bad it was, but the people behind the production put so much love and care into making it a good show that it became enjoyable for everyone.  There was absolutely no reason to put any effort into making it good, yet they did.  FiM was only supposed to last a single season, and it's already been approved for a fifth.

The age of good cartoons is over.  Avatar was probably the last great animated show, the sequel isn't even half as good. Nowadays the 'key' to making a successful cartoon is unbearably stupid characters and unintelligent slapstick 'humor', ie fart jokes galore.  But it's nice to know that at least one good series is around.

Also, older viewers don't watch the show to learn any sort of lesson, they watch it because it is well made and entertaining.

LOL now I know you're a troll. You expect me to believe that you think good cartoons are over yet a show like MLP is an acceptable one? How dare you insult animation with such an asinine statement. Adventure Time, Regular Show, Flapjack, Chowder, & Lazlo are all great cartoons. Yes Avatar is too. MLP may have splendid animation but everything else about isn't anything above OK. It has basic character archetypes (the biggest reason bronies have to love the show yet it's completely flawed), storytelling that gets generic after a while, a terrible villain, & annoying musical numbers (and I happen to be a fan of musicals).

They don't watch it for that, but supposedly they learn things from it that they should have learned back in Kindergarten.

Chowder, Camp Lazlo, and Flapjack are no longer in development, and Adventure Tme and Regular Show are stupid. Bring it on haters.

Cartoons these days strive to be stupid.  Apparently it's the only thing that keeps kids watching.  Uncle Grandpa, Clarence, Regular Show, all three of these cartoons feature main characters that are moronic to the point of sadness.  Spongebob, which used to be a decent show, has continually gotten dumbed down to 'keep up' with the changing times.  It's pathetic.

Adventure Tme and Regular Show are stupid.

Yeah, might I remind you that you like MLP. And they are far from stupid. They are intelligently written cartoons, with Adventure Time being the best one. It has actual character development & storylines, lavish animation, lovely art style & fantastic stories amongst it's characters. Whereas my little pony has characters with basic archetypes that never go beyond them (the sporty one, the country girl, the bookworm, the annoying one, the shy one, & the fashion whore), generic stories, an insulting villain, annoying musical numbers, & bland jokes.

Nobody gives two shits about Uncle Grandpa or Clarence, even my cousins, who are kids mind you, consider those shows stupid. So if you really think kids are entertained by stupidity then you are an absolute moron who knows nothing, & are insulting to ANYONE that actually has made their life of studying many cartoons &/or animating such as myself. Then again, you did call Adventure time stupid so I rest my case.

You don't need to remind me that I like MLP, that's what the discussion is about.

I used to be a hater too.  I ran my mouth and insulted people for watching the show and thought the worst of them.  So I understand your arguments.

Now if you aren't going to take my comments seriously and have a decent conversation with me, then I have nothing further to say.  I will forgive you for the mindless insults if you are willing to rethink them.  I don't want to have unintelligible insult fights with people who disagree with me or my opinions, or with those that I disagree with.  I want to have meaningful and worthwhile conversation that is geared towards developing a further understanding on the different views of the subject in question.

I am no longer going to continue to reply to comments on this image.  If you want to continue the conversation, feel free to note me.  I may not respond immediately, but I will respond in time if a response is justified.

Indeed. And the amount of people who have been "inspired" by it. During my brief time watching the show, I enjoyed it, but why the hell would it inspire me? It's just too insignificant to inspire me. And yet millions of people overrate it to the skies.

Yeah, & some people wonder why people hate the show & its fans. If one show, out of countless other better shows inspired you then I'm sorry but I have no reason to call you an artist. Yes, if it ONE of your influences I'll get that, but if it's the ONLY show that inspires you then good luck getting any real respect as an artist.

You right yo, as the time pass, the show have more that i call "Squidward Clones Syndrome" as only the main characters seems to be a bit nice while the rest of the world is worst that humanity itself and Ed Edd N Eddy combined, as they develpe a more human behavior that, in fact, is the wrong path to the "Pony Franchise" aside for twisting their hind legs backwards like a crane and living in skyscrappers, there are a more less nice to the human add-ment......

The best children TV show is Peep Wide World.

I love the show but i hate how hateful both fans and haters can be.... HAVENT BRONIES SEEN LESSON ZERO? (the smarty pants scene, it can be a parallel to how bronies try to convince nonbronies to watch the show, and how obsession can cause many problems)  but i still love the show and consider me a brony, or a pegasister, because the show has a more optimistic look at life compared to many other shows (not ALL of them , there's plenty of shows that are equally optimistic) who have a black and grey morality. i know it doesnt turn evil into good, but at least it tries
Im not offended, angry mad or hurt, sir, i just wanted to tell you that not all of us are insane.
please enjoy whatever fandom you are in.

It may be a cartoon for kids, but it's freaking awesome.

I personally was in a mild depression before I found out about and started watching the show.  It actually somewhat restored my faith in humanity to know that good t.v was still possible.  I actually haven't watched t.v in about a year because of all of the horrible shows on.  Many shows cant' go for 2 minutes without making an adult reference or 30 seconds without swearing.

T.v has degraded to the point where if it isn't horribly offensive, it isn't funny.  And kids shows are even worse, I seriously feel sorry for kids these days.

But the show has overall increased my outlook on life.  I now enjoy spending time with my family and friends more than I used to, and I'm generally a much more positive person.  It's taught me to have fun again, not by hitting the bars and drinking, or chain-smoking weed all day, but by looking at life a little differently.

Don't knock it before you try it, as you say, it's just a show.

Do you think FNAF is awesome? You likely do since you have a Bonnie profile pic. Some people are crazy about it, very crazy, and if you haven't heard about what some people think about Chica, it's creepy.

I like MLP:FiM. I also have a DeviantArt account dedicated to fan images. Some people are crazy about it. Some people have strange fetishes, yeah we all know.

I'm not going to judge you for what you find entertaining, and I'd appreciate if you would do the same for me if you're going to be so rude about it.

You must be one absolute idiot to think that one show, of ALL things out there, suddenly changes your outlook on life, especially given the fact that you think it's the only good show on TV (which it's not). Adventure Time is way better than this show.

I was depressed for a good amount of time, I didn't even want to go out, but you know what changed my outlook on everything? It sure as hell wasn't a cartoon, as much as I watched South Park or Adventure Time during the time, it was someone I fell in love with. From then on forward I realized that I need to learn to love myself & share it with others I love, not some little girls show teaching you things you should have learned since fucking elementary. And you know what show actually taught me something real important like self confidence? It was RuPaul's Drag Race.

Now, that's an example of my life changed through something actually meaningful, not a little girls show teaching morals that all of its fans should have known some the first grade.

1. I fucking despise this show. I'm not going to watch it again.
2. Oh you were depressed? Pffft. Same old story.
3. "Bawwww TV sucks these days". I don't even watch much TV, but come on. There must be something else other than THIS.
4. Don't give me that baloney about how it cured your depressed and made you a better person. If it did, then that's really sad.
5. No, seriously, it is. IT'S A SHOW FOR CHILDREN. It was DESIGNED to educate and entertain CHILDREN. I always spend time with family/friends, and I didn't need some dumbass cartoon to teach how to do that. Sorry, but saying that this cartoon improved your life is just as bad as saying SpongeBob improved your life. 
6. Your fanbase is absolutely sickening, putrid, arrogant to the extreme and appallingly preachy. An embarrassment to nerd culture, an infestation of stupidity that WILL NOT SHUT ABOUT THIS OVERRATED-AS-HELL CARTOON and will not stop acting like they're better than everyone for "watching a show for little girls hurr durr I'm so speshul lololol"

And none of it will stop. Ever. When you look at it, and I mean PROPERLY LOOK AT IT, it's too retarded to believe. It's an oversized fandom obsessed with a children's cartoon about multi-coloured talking horses. It was funny at first. Now, it's irredeemably pathetic.

1. Oh, you watched it?  Sorry to tell you, but watching for 2 minutes doesn't count.
2. Yes, and so are/were a lot of other people.  The world sucks and the people in it are assholes.  I'd rather live in Equestria.
3. Have you seen TV lately?  It's all the same old crap.  Uncreative, boring, unintelligible, etc...
4. Not sad at all, actually pretty great.  I'm not saying it ALONE got me out of the rut in my life, but it made me realize to be more appreciative of my friends/family.  I don't overlook them as much anymore.  If I'm sad, friends/family are there to cheer me up now that I've bettered my relationship with them.  And if I'm bored, I've got mlp and the good people on deviantArt (ie, not you).
5. Maybe it was DESIGNED (I can use caps lock too) to be for children, but the entertainment isn't restricted to that demographic.  Things aren't always what they first appear to be, don't limit yourself to what you've already fixed yourself to believe.
6. I agree with you on one thing, some parts of the fandom are EXTREMELY creepy.  But it isn't all that way.  Again, you need to open your eyes a little wider and keep yourself from focusing on just one aspect of any particular thing.  I'm not saying I think I'm better than you just because I watch a particular show (pretty sure I never met anyone else say that either), but I am saying that you can't go around with fixed notions in your head about people/things.  There are always going to be creepy people out there that are obsessed with perverting good things, but seriously it isn't just limited to MLP, this is true of everything.  It's rule 34 of the internet.  If it exists, there is porn of it.

First off, I don't want it to stop, ever.
But clearly you have anger problems.  Don't always assume things are what they seem.  I'm not a brony because I love looking at pony porn on the internet, definitely not, I hate that.  I'm a brony because I really enjoy this particular show.  It's clever and funny, and if you don't want to give it a real try, or if you just don't want to be a part of it, then fine.  But you don't have to go around and be an asshole about it.  I don't mean to say that you or any other hater are bad people, but you don't need to take the time to bash bronies and mock the fandom or the show.  Why put forth the extra effort?  If it isn't worth your time to watch the show, then it shouldn't be worth your time to hate on it.

Us fans?  We just want to spread the word and show other people that this amazing thing exists.  There are still a lot of people who don't know about it, I just became aware of it a little under a year ago.

Lastly, I used to be a hater too.  But then I realized the error in my actions, the error being that I had never even watched a single episode of the show.  Now look at me, I'm happier than ever and I'm proud to say that I'm a brony.
