When the show aired on the Hub, seasons 1 & 2 were full of cheesy daytime cable-quality ads for stuffed animals and dolls.

I find it humorous what kinds of ads ran during the season 3 premiere:

- Skylanders (monster toy and video game series)
- Nano Speed (Matchbox car track system)
- Xploderz (Nerf-like foam guns)
- Moshlings Theme Park (handheld video game)
- Leapster GS (handheld video game)
- GAK (toy slime)
- Floam (sculpting foam)

The advertisers don't seem to realize it's a girl's show either. LOL.

So word on the street is, all of the ponies are going to become humans in a new television show.

Doesn't that violate some sort of Church dogma about ousia transmogrification or something, like how angels can't become human and vis versa?

http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Equestria_Girls_%28TV_series%29

I would like to have some Patristic commentary on this. Argumentate it, and explain.

Can ponies which have become human receive baptism?

Argumentate it and explain.

Such evolutionary marvels should be treated like non-Orthodox trinitarians. Their transformation to humanhood is a baptism-into-life, so to speak. But this baptism is merely an empty form, which needs to be filled. Thus they should be chrismated, and that will provide that grace which had not been there before, filling the baptism with salvific substance.

Threadus resurrexit! 

I think the controversy behind MLP and the reasons why "bronies" are so defensive, goes to a deeper psychological root.   MLP has a lot of feminine base/estrogen in the show,  and therefore bronies get so defensive because they don't want to be seen  as "less than a man" and therefore weak, or inferior..     

Although some would never directly state it, all such ideas are based off of stereotypes.   Who you are has nothing to do with how you express yourself.  With 7 billion people on this planet, I doubt any of us are going to fit into one box or another...   Include that with everyone possessing an animus/anima or masculine and feminine traits within them, regardless of biological sex. 
Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the catholic faith; Which faith except every one do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly. And the catholic faith is this: That we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity

You can probably find out more than you ever wanted to know here.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Little_Pony:_Friendship_Is_Magic_fandom

And by "more than you ever wanted to know", I mean learning about it at all.

Why would you do this???
It is time for our little boy to grow up and learn about the big world.  Even if it does permanently scar him.
