Why are grown men watching My Little Pony?

Isn't this a cartoon for young girls? if I remember right.

Update:

Smugleaf, can't you get the warm fuzzies from watching something a little more mature? When a man becomes a 'man', he puts away childish things...,well to a degree. How about Avatar, the Last Airbender.:)

    I watch it because it makes me happy. That's all the reason I need.

    The popularity of the 4th generation of this show, Friendship is Magic, originated on 4chan. They saw a couple of blogs railing against the show (below) and they wanted to see what all the fuss was about, only to actually get hooked on the show when they saw it.

    The show was originally designed such that parents could watch it with their kids without cringing at it, so it was well made. And one more thing to note, being a cartoon for girls doesn't automatically make something "bad". Lauren Faust specifically mentioned that shows designed for girls that suck are such because the creators aren't putting any effort into it, not because girly stuff is inherently bad or anything.

    Edit: Avatar: The Last Airbender? I love that show. I have all three seasons downloaded, and I'm pumped for the sequel Legend of Korra. Also note, that that show is also created for kids. Being targeted towards children doesn't make a work bad.

    And about your comment on maturity, read this quote:

    Eh, I'm a 20 year old woman and I watch Spongebob and Invader Zim because I think those shows are funny. Even if it's intended for a different demographic, I'll watch it if I like it.

    They could have young daughters with whom they watch it with.
