I think its disturbing for any grown individual to have a obsession for children's toys. A grown adult who is obsessive about tickle me elmo or my little pony are about the same to me. I simply don't get it.
I know a person back when I was in college that stayed in the same dorms as me. She was a grown woman. SHe had no mental incapacities. ANd yet she would drag this elmo doll everywhere with her. Sometimes she would even talk like elmo.
One day asa cruel joke someone hid her elmo doll. She literally went walking down the hall sobbing for hours begging people to give her back her elmo doll. Eventually she found it, and she was OK. Now normally Id say that it was cruel to do what they had done to her. But keep it in perspective. this is a grown adult crying over an elmo doll. I just don't get it. I can understand the psychological anchoring of toys from our childhood acting like security blankets for a grown adult, but still.
As far as Rainbow bright and my little pony turning guys feminine. I'm willing to bet the guys watching that show were born a little feminine to begin with, nothing wrong with that, but I don't think the siren song of my little pony is enough to "convert" guys into little sissy boys.

*gives you a great big vitural hug*
The movie was probably the biggest hollywood let down ever, but that is off topic and for another thread. XD
Seriously though, nothing wrong with a guy to cry when it is called for. We nicknamed my FIL the rock, he didn't even cry when his son died. There is just something disturbign about that.
His father was a submarine captain.
HIm and his brother are so dysfunctional it isn't even funny.

Even more disturbing is how that some of them claimed to be sexually attracted to said pony characters. The "bronies" (fans of the show) embrace it by calling it "masculine" and for "manly men".
The show portrays a female-dominated society where the men are seen as weak and inferior. The character "Big Mac," is portrayed as dumb and useless while the female ponies are shown as smart and capable of doing things themselves. The creator of the show, Lauren Faust, left, is a feminist.
Many of the bronies attend to the pony con where they show their love for the characters and buy the toys, etc.
Left wing conspiracy to feminize men,
