Description de l’éditeur
Grown men and women watch a cartoon made to sell toy horses to four-year-old girls. Now increasingly notorious, "bronies" have been called everything from sexual deviants to a bellwether of post-ironic culture, from misogynists to a vision of a future free from gender norms.
This second volume of essays in the My Little Po-Mo series combines critical analysis of the second season of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic with ethnographic examination of its fandom, with a focus on what might be called the "dark side" of the latter. Sex, death, and chaos, handled as only a children's cartoon can!
This volume includes:
-Critical essays on every episode of the second season
-Three essays presenting in-depth character studies of Rarity, Applejack, and Zecora
-A study of bronies as an aspirational fandom
-Essays exploring controversial aspects of bronies, including pornographic "clop," violent "grimdark" fan fiction, the "Derpygate" controversy, and fan aggression
