#Quote
1[on the strong male following of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (2010)]: The fact that they (gave the show a chance) and that they were open-minded and cool enough and secure in their masculinity enough to embrace it and love it and go online and talk about how much they love it - I'm kind of proud.
