    But it doesn't have that. When I go to the subcategories all it has is "View site" and "Dashboard". That's why I'm wondering if I don't need extra permissions to access it.

    Hey lynx I read ur article and it makes perfect sense. I'm a Brony. At first when I hurd the idea from my friend being addicted to my little pony I was like "geez who would get caught dead watching this crap" but as he talked about it more an more I got cerious and watched 3 episodes and I was hook-line-and sinker to this Show. I was even surprising my self that I watch it. But I have also been doing my homework on the show and I got to admit they have a great fan base and that really surprised me. Cuz in my school its the same situation with people criticizing other people for what they watch. But i could care
    Less cuz before I was a closet Brony for the first 12 episodes but after that I was very open about the whole show. Thanks for this awesome article.

    Yesterday, woot.com had Hasbro Littlest Pet Shop Figures, which some people likened to Hasbro's other more superior series featuring colorful animals. Someone then asked "I've read through all the comments, and I STILL don't know wth a Brony is!!!?!!"

    I simply had to oblige them an answer that points to this article. :D

    On similar topic, woot has historically snuck in a few pony-related things. Like for a while, typing "OMG" was filtered and turned into "WOO, PONIES!"

    I'm going to be joining this site JUST because of this article. I've fallen in LOVE with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I saw a few people talking about it on World of Warcraft and I looked it up...I'm HOOKED. 10 Episodes watched counting. "Winter Wrap Up" Is the BEST song I've ever heard. I've listened to it non-stop 62 times so far, right now. My GOD This article is PONY-GOD.

    Bro bro bro, if you want the best mlp song, you gotta look outside the series.

    Well I'm a brony too, just found this. Read a comment about fanfics, so whoever (upslynx?) wanted good romance fics without sex scenes should check out some of my work. "Flutterheart" and others available on http://www.fimfiction.net/story/926/Flutterheart just in case you care. Probably won't get on this thread again, but good job with the article.

    Awww too bad. I've let several bronies around my children. I guess I'm a bad father.

    In psychology, I believe this is called projection.

    But... but what if the children are in turn also bronies? Are infants now at risk of devious brony children? Or does it reverse over the generation timeline and put the elderly at risk?

    I also secretly fear that my cat is a brony and will paw at me... unappropritly... in my sleep. This sickens me.

    Mr. Halpert... I don't know what to do. Halp!

    Children cannot be bronies, only 20+ year old men with an obsession over a little girls show can be. Also cats cannot be bronies because cats have good taste in TV shows.
