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:

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?

Well, I definitely don't think you're too old! I'm 18 and my Mom still gets me MLP merchandise for gift giving occasions; there are people in far higher age categories who like to purchase merch for those sort of things.

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.

Your mother does realize she basically insulted you by saying that, right?

...

...Right? :iconjustwhyplz:

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.
