Calling a female a "brony" makes no sense to me.

I'm with you there as well

True, but they are not "bro's". wink.gif

And there to, I think Bronie is really a male only term... in addition a few of the Radio Stations I listen to like to hate on Bronies... this of course being directed to male fans... as making fun of a female fan of My Little Pony Friend Ship is Magic would be pretty assine!

 

Still though how did this leak off the MLPFM thread?

I think they might have something in their hands.

I like that concept but all the words proposed so far to do the same thing in English just sound silly.

 

I like the idea in some sci-fi I've read where "man", "mankind", etc become gender neutral and a new word is invented to take its place.  I think that works well because of all the places where "man" is already part of another word or phrase.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I mean, if you put up a Bugs Bunny, Roadrunner, Popeye, etc. cartoon,

I'll probably stay glued to the TV watching cause I really like those characters... but... maybe it's

just me... but... Ponies?!? Colors used are kind of "girly", settings and plot also (in comparison to the cartoons I just mentioned)

which is why I mentioned that "pedophile" angle... lol ;-) 

 

Also, all those toys you mentioned seems to be "gender-specific" too...

It's really a small percentage of males that collect Dolls... trains, R/C, etc... I don't find a problem with them...

 

I guess it's just that I believe that show is geared toward females/girls and not boys?

(even though it is just a cartoon...)... I don't know...

 

I don't consider myself a "machista" (don't know if there's a word in English for that)... I mean, I'm pro

equality and all of that stuff so it's not like I'm narrow-minded but, again, I don't get why being such fans...

Could it be just ppl following a trend or fad?

Could it be pretentious ppl just trying to be different?

Could guys REALLY, REALLY like this sub-par show?

 

Not sure...

You can say that again!

Well, since becoming a very proud member of "Team Nouveau Riche" after the dot com & property booms prior to 2008, I'm all for shiny stuff, the shinier, the better. Such a shame the AKGs are not shiny enough; I mean, they're pretty crappy-sounding --we ex-proud K3003 owners have just had a serious reality check-- and I could still live with that, but I'm honestly considering putting them up for sale because they just ain't shiny enough, or so the fine ladies I hang around with keep telling me.

Yes, seems like the learning curve will finally lead me back to my Apple earbuds, which, BTW, I think are actually fairly decent-sounding, if it wasn't for the poor fit (read: I've never been able to wear earbuds). Those learning curves can really be painful.

Graphs, eh? Hmm… well, I'll have to leave those to Inks. I will say, however, that the mid-range on the Heaven-S is really quite something, or so my ears are telling me so. Mightily impressive overall performance by these single BAs, I have to say. Although the flat cable isn't great and the strain reliefs are…oh, wait…er... actually there are no strain reliefs!…Anyway, these are staying, not going up for sale anytime soon. The Heaven-S somehow reminds me of the EX1000, but the FADs have a more convincing mid-range and surprisingly textured bass.

In the MLP:FiM fandom it seems "pony" has taken on an almost gender neutral meaning, as in "everypony" being used for "everyone" or "everybody." This is only based on my limited understanding of things from the few fans I know, however.

That's how it was used in 5 or 6 episodes of it I watched.

Speaking of gender neutral forms of address, this past year I've become acquainted with two gender-queer individuals who feel limited by associating with one particular gender. One of them uses the pronouns "hir" and "shi," while the other just uses plural forms like "their" and "they."

wow!!

Isn't that going to extremes?

(I can just imagine new poems and songs using those... yuck!!!)

post #5846 of 15119

BTW... I'm still stumped...

 

1) Ultrasone Signature Pros

2) Audio Technica 3000ANV

3) Audio Technica W1000X

 

Since the only amps I have now are the Icon HDP and the c421, I guess the 3000ANV are out?

 

 

Thanks.

 

 

(btw, just looking for "closed" phones... )

Hmm. When you do something, or a human does something, you can say 'you' or 'one' to that. Well, in Sweden, the 'you'/'one' is actually 'man'. "One has to look out for oneself.." would be "Man has to look out for manself". Are you with me so far?

 

Well, there has been a feminist writer who wrote a novel, changing 'man' for 'woman' throughout the whole novel. "Woman has to look out for womanself.." - kind of language. I tried reading it, and it was just a mess at first, but became very understandable after a while. This means to me that we are very able to change words like that, however confusing it may be at first.

Do you really see it as geared towards gender specific children, or just children in general? I don't mean to sound offensive in any way, because truth be told, I can't stand MLP.

 

I couldn't even stand the original series when me and my cousin were small children and she wanted to see it. It was all .. just very, very bad.

Speaking of 'they'/'their', it really came as a surprise to me that one can do that in english when I first heard about it. I'm 32, and last time we had english in school was when I was 17. So, during 15 years I hadn't known of this. It just came to me last fall that people can actually use 'they' for singuralis purposes.

Suits them right. Apple has been using the Sony Vaio-keyboard for years now, so I think it's just fair for Sony to use a Apple:ish brushed metal on its hood.

^ Looks like Panasonic RP-HTX7 somewhat.

 

I think I may unsubscribe from the RedGiant thread now. The last thing I want to do is get involved in a debate about the ASG-1.

I see stuff like Roadrunner, Flintstones, Scooby Doo, Bugs, Spongebob, etc as just for children/adults in general.

I see stuff like MLP, Dora the Explorer, Sabrina, PP Girls, etc. as gender-specific (female).

 

But again, that's just me...

And that's why it is "weird" to me seeing so many "bronies" out there... it's actually kind of disturbing to me! LOL

I COULD understand the fascination if it was actually a GOOD series but... from what I saw, it really isn't...
