How The Internet Was Won By Autistic Bronies And Where It Got Us

January 6, 2012

So, this happened yesterday:

And it set the internet on fire!

Journalism nerds are amused/horrified at their state of their calling. Bronies are really fucking excited about this brush with the mainstream and legitimacy.

Aspies– or at least this Aspie– were like “Well, of course. You’ve got to get that shit right.”

I can imagine that the young woman was pretty vexed by this mistake. Special interests are serious business. You cannot half ass your coverage about a very precise person’s most narrow focus.

Heck. It’s been over ten years since the height of my Man From U.N.C.L.E. special interest, and I’d still cut a bitch if they accidentally implied that I was a Napolean fucking Solo girl.

To celebrate this bold step forward in Asperger’s awareness, I made a pony with this sweet generator.

Sullen and surrounded by books. This is my life.

By the way, if you haven’t seen the article about Asperger’s and love in question, it’s worth a look. It’s definitely better than the one I was in.

    I totally understand the correction. Imagine everyone believing that you thought of the WRONG My Little Pony! It’s like someone saying your favourite Star Trek character is Bones when it is obviously Spock.

    And thanks for the link to the article. Like you, I’m in a half autistic marriage but I have to also think of my son.
