Men’s Rights Activists, why do you think people are laughing at you?
It’snot because we think you shouldn’t have rights or that your problems don’t matter. I want men to be able to wear pink and drink fruity drinks and wear makeup and engage in other perhaps unfairly stereotypical…
Ok guys, I know most of you don’t like reading, but please do. ThIs is kind this kind of serious.
Hasbro sent a Cease and Desist letter to Fighting is Magic, a fan NON-PROFIT project that I’m sure a lot of you know about. If you don’t, just google it up.
Point is this. I feel the guys at…
OW, MY SIDES.
Like, okay, wow, okay. Wow. So this is like a prime example of what I mean when I talk about the lack of self-awareness and perspective that bronies have.
I feel the guys at Hasbro are acting quite like jerks in these last months.
First they censore Derpy
Yeah, I remember that. Derpy talked like she had a mental disorder and showed physical signs of one as well. Another character did as well, but no bronies gave a fuck about him because they didn’t use Snails as a representative agent of how much Hasbro loves the fandom. Then there were all the death threats and transphobic slurs the brony community leveled at Yamino. That was REAL COOL.
Nevermind that maybe people outside the fandom might have had a problem with Derpy. Oh, no, that’s impossible. But they should totally keep a character people find offensive in the show because people outside the target demographic made her their mascot.
put an Alicorn Twilight in the show just to promote and sell a stupid toy
LACK OF PERSPECTIVE. The brony community will never be Hasbro’s priority. Their target audience is 6 - 11 year old girls.
And now they make desist total fan-non-profit-projects.
Which, as much as you may find this hard to believe, they have every right to do! They’re using trademarked characters in a way that could be seen as defamatory to the brand and the core ideals of the product they are producing. You may not like it, but they had every right to do this.
This, from my point of view, it’s unacceptable.
And heeere we go.
They are not realizing that they are slowly destroying the fandom
(This isn’t where it gets funny)
only caring about their own image and interest
They still don’t realize they’re making the success they’re making because of Bronies.
AND THERE IT IS, EVERYONE! BRONY LACK OF PERSPECTIVE PERSONIFIED!
No, bronies are not the reason MLP is still a success. The fact that it’s the least terrible show for the 6-11 demographic functioning as an advertisement for a massive toy line is! They make money because of the amount of toys they are selling to LITTLE GIRLS. The bronies could be wiped off the face of the earth (oh but a girl can dream) and Hasbro would still be making bank! This is why they don’t target you!
Reblog this post to help them reach the amount of signature they need to try to make Hasbro open their eyes.
Yeah, Hasbro isn’t the one needing to open their eyes here.
