My Little Bronies

“As a person with Asperger syndrome, I learned more about theory of mind, friendships and social interactions from this season [of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic] than I had in the previous 31 years of life.”

That’s a quote from this article about the popularity of the Hub’s My Little Pony series with adult men, who call themselves “Bronies.” And no, it’s not an article from The Onion.

UPDATE: My comments were interpreted by some readers as making fun of people with Asperger’s. That was never my intention. I wanted to point out that adult men were interested in the series, which is what I wrote, but my careless use of that quote caused confusion. I apologize to readers for the misunderstanding.
