I know what video your talking about but I don’t think she hates that. I think she was just she was hinting that now mlp had a large male audience and that same audience wanted toys that implemted what they wanted, and they got what they wanted.Forgetting orginally the toys are targeted towards girls or just in general the female audience.

Is she sexist or something?
 
I understand the fandom can be weird considering the majority of it is adult males, but why would she act like guys can’t like MLP? Heck, girls can like things aimed at boys too and there was no issue.

She’s not sexist, the whole video was supposed to be taken very lightly.But I understand her point though, some mlp fans are very entitled, but they shouldn’t be, not with this type of show. Mlp was orginally meant for females, so for all of sudden a bunch of grown men tells you that the stuff you grew up with is trash, and call you a “fake fan” etc. It could be very disheartening because that’s what she had to go through.Even though the mass majority isn’t like that now and do understand what mlp targeted audience truly is, that does still leave a bad taste in some people’s mouth.

She wasn’t doing that either, she was basically just poking fun at the whole expreince in a very sacarctic tone. You could still enjoy something that has been around for long time,or something meant for the opposite sex, but that doesn’t mean you should be rude to the other people who have been loving the same thing just longer and who it was actually meant for.

Oh there’s no problem here, it’s the other person who said something about that. I recommend you watching it, it’s a pretty good watch.
 
@DerpyFast  
I agree, Minty was pretty good as well

Hasbro still do make toys for the girls, don’t they?
 
They do and they were making combable figures at the same time as Guardians of Harmony. Her complaint about focusing too much on the core characters also doesn’t work since they were still doing blind bags and other lines that included the extended cast. But acknowledging that would get in the way of a good argument.

No, I think she was just using sarcasm as mask to make the same arguments that she’s jumped all over Star Wars fanboys for having in regards to Forces of Destiny line or The Last Jedi.

I’d have to diagree. Jenny has no qualms with the Mlp fandom, heck she was considerd “Horse Famous”during the hype of the fandom.I think that whole video was just to give a run down on how Bronies came to be, while adding her two cents and her experinces with it. In regarding the toys , they had change in a way sinces bronies have been a thing. I mean look at what it used to be then, than what it is recently.

Brushables always existed, they never went away, showing something from a different line at the end isn’t relevant to the claim.
 
They did get massively more homogenized and got less character variety and mostly stuck to just mane 6, and saying “well other lines like blind bags had more characters” doesn’t really apply as that is a different line and people who collected brushables (me included) wanted more brushable characters, not tiny blind bags.

Oh, I understand that, but look how the packeging from 2010 was hot pink and I guess more “girly”. But as Jenny said more or less bronies wanted that to change that, now it’s light blue. And I personaly don’t think that bad either.

Because MLP toys by default have always had brushable hair, that is the foundation and what a majority of collectors (outside of bronies) enjoy and like. It’s understandable that many became frustrated at the over-abundance of the same six characters released over and over in the format they collect and all the character variety being in other toy formats.

Yes, tho not as drastically as some people believe. G3.5 and later years G3 were focused on releasing the same seven ponies over and over, early G4 actually had more variety than then from the get-go, and overall probably had about as much as them if not more. Tho there likely would have been a bit more of it, and also probably less other lines, had bronies not become a thing.

Season 9 sucked, and I can’t believe there are fans who believe otherwise.
