Despite the focus being mainly about video games (or maybe because of it), Sean Malstrom found himself in a flame war over My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. He claims that the show's popularity among men worries him (this is significant, as he almost always expresses anger or frustration over fear). The show's fans were quick on the reaction to his statements, and he reacted back accordingly to defend his point. He backed down before things got really ugly, but Friendship Is Magic remains a recurring topic throughout 2013.
