Childish vs Apparent Maturity by endler Childish vs Apparent Maturity by endler
"If liking something makes me a child, but wailing about it makes me adult, I'll happily stay a child in your eyes."

Because, honestly, if I had to choose risking looking like an apparent brat that needs to grow up just because I enjoy things that are made for young people, or seeming mature in people's eyes by constantly wailing in a negative fashion how these people all need to grow up for just liking something that I don't like and sticking my nose into the business of people I will never meet in my life and within two decades will completely forget about as I look back onto my life and realize how much more time I wasted than anyone who spent their time just truly enjoying something...

I suppose in the eyes of...complete strangers I'm always going to be a bratty kid that needs to grow up because I enjoy collecting figurines that are not of the colour black.

And no, this isn't just for FIM. I enjoy many things that are considered for younger folks - evident from other stamps I enjoy collecting plush animals (Webkinz especially), I enjoy going onto those sites that were originally meant for adults but then were for kids but now mostly adults flood it (Neopets), enjoy collecting toys outside of figurines (Lalaloopsys) and enjoy watching all matters of cartoons meant for little kids.

If being involved with all of that makes me a kid, even though I try my best not to be a douche about my likings, then I'm a kid. c:

I'm a teenager, and I absolutely adore animated movies aimed at a younger auidience such as How to train your dragon 1 and 2. Yet, interestingly enough, I equally enjoy horror movies.

To be honest, I dislike the generations before FIM, but I'm fine with some of the idiocy in it.
Also, I happen to be more mature than my Dyslexic older brother, and my over-hyped older brother.

I know what Dyslexia is, sheesh.

People who like cartoons AKA "childish" stuff:
Person 1: Goku is better than Superman!
Person 2: Goku couldn't even touch Superman!
*continues pointless arguments over the internet*

People who like sports AKA "adult stuff":

Person 1: MY soccer team is better!
Person 2: Your goalie fucking moves like a crippled retard!
*gets in a drunk argument and then a riot occurs*

One of these sounds more immature than the other.

I agree with what you said. Adults act like they're the big guys, when children can make better sense. Watch the 'Kids React to Gay Marriage' video, and you may know where I'm coming from.

:iconmysterioustomjenkins:
I have seen it and you are absolutely right.

Kids watching it:
Kid 1: Are those guys getting married? That's weird. *chuckles*
Kid 2: Awww...that's sweet.
Kid 3: ......*not sure what he is watching*

Adults watching it:
Adult 1: This is sick and these guys should be arrested for such perversion!
Adult 2: Pfft, look at these fags. Probably couldn't get a girl so they had to be butt buddies with their best friend.
Adult 3: Look at these brave souls! They are an inspiration to us all and our government needs to see that there is nothing wrong with it!

The kids act completely mature about it while adults on either side will make it a big deal. Children at times can act better than most adults because children still have that spark of innocence and usually don't think of personal gain or what other people are doing. Adults are either thinking too much of themselves or getting too involved with other people's business.

Oh my gosh. I can't count how many times I've been told to "grow up huehue" because I like Webkinz, Club Penguin, Neopets, Littlest Pet Shop and Build a Bear. And because I have a big Lion King collection. As if liking some computer games and stuffed animals makes me a bad person. 
This stamp makes me so happy. I'm just so glad people feel the same!! uvu

I'm 13 and I love My little pony! I'm not like those obsessed pegasisters. But while I wore my mlp jacket for the first time at school last year, my friend told me she hated mlp and saying it's for babies and asked me why I liked baby stuff. Then she didn't like me anymore and she stopped being my friend.


I don't normally like kid stuff that much, Except for Mario, Sonic, Pokémon, Link, Megaman, And My little pony. But I love that stuff! I'm a girl also a tomboy. Plus I love m rated games, like Halo, or metal gear solid. (Sorry no Cod fan)  My mom doesn't even care if I play m rated games as long if it doesn't have sex scenes. Also I love cute things and violence! Heart

I like MLP and Webkinz, but when I ask mom to get me one, or ask for one for my birthday, a scoff, or a laugh. Am I too old to ask for something I like? My mom says "Why do you like that stuff? You're almost fourteen." So?

I also like Pokemon, and other little kid stuff. But I also enjoy older, more adult stuff. I can have a foot in both world's, can't I? I mean, MLP can also be socially supportive, as I don't have very good social skills. Webkinz can be good, too. But mom just won't listen... I even tell her how adults like these things, and she just calls them crazy people with no life, or something along those lines. Okay, so I'm a crazy person with no life, or am going to be? Thanks mom, you're a great help.

Yeah, but she takes low regard to other people's feelings and the pain she can deal in her words, even when right, she's quite blunt.

I rather be "child at heart" person than the "fitting in the crowd and you must eat and must watch male shows!1!1" person. Well, I like action shows and kid's stuff. Why can't I like both? I tend to be nicer than gender roles people and their supporters.

I adore how you mention Neopets - I used to be on the site a LOT until it got sold. I'm always collecting stuffed animals and toys, playing video games, loving cartoons. My whole life, my parents fought against it so hard, as if it was the worst thing in the world!

But I'm standing strong at 37 (as of June 30th, just turned lol) and I still have a room filled with toys, including one of those ginormous Furreal Ponies. <3 Annnd, actually, I have a DVD waiting to be popped into my PS3. It's "Rugrats: season 2".

THIS. Love it. If people can like fairy tales and fantasy novels (ex: Harry Potter & Artemis Fowl), Disney, Henson (to this day, his legacy with what's basically a felt sock would never be forgotten: www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXhb4H… & www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKigMg… & www.youtube.com/watch?v=DC6o_q… & www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKYj22… ), Mr. Rogers (the man ought'a be canonized, in my personal opinion, since he was a Presbyterian minister and was everything he presented to his television viewers, as shown when he faced down the Supreme Court when PBS was in need of funds to support its existence), and respect and/or enjoy slice-of-life Nicktoons (Doug, Rugrats, Hey Arnold, and As Told By Ginger), why can't MLP get the same?
