I’m excited mainly because this is the first time I’m aware of since it’s become “unmanly” for men to have anything to do with femininity¹ that a lot of men are going ahead and liking something feminine unironically.
This is definitely an observation others have made, and in fact an observation others have argued against (on the grounds that there are actually many bronies who don’t seem to be any less femmephobic for enjoying a show designed for little girls). But I’m excited about it anyway, which is one of the main reasons I’m into the show myself.
1: Yes there was a time before it was unmanly for men to do anything feminine whatsoever. The change was actually fairly recent, but that’s another post entirely.
