    A lot of the Sonicfag and Ponyfag population are asspies...What draws autistic people into that kind of fandom? It is kind of weird.

    Quite simply my dear Asspie, the sonicfags are high on speed and pretending to be old enough to gain nostalgia from sonic or are old enough and want to touch children.

    And Ponyfags are a mixture of different kinds of fuckery. Or in my case badassery

    Because they're fat and ugly and have to live through Sonic and ponies.

    Because aspies are the only type of people that would be drawn to that content.

    Because NORPS watch How I Met Your Mother.

    Because aspies are automatic furries. Also, it probably has to do with aspies not being able to get a real girlfriend. So they have to go to something with fur. Probably some stupid Mai Waifu shit. If anyone has a Waifu, I suggest you kill yourself for the favor of society.

    Aspies love those things because the characters in both shows have simplified mannerisms unlike people in real life. Aspies have difficulty relating to real life people so a easier, happy world with simple to read characters doesn't overload their brains.

    Why hasn't anyone made soap and lampshades of NORPS yet?
    Let's play a game. It's called "this or nothing". The rules are simple. You sift through a lot of pictures and ask yourself. Would you like this for a waifu...

    Brännpunkt Hindenburg.

    ...or be alone forever?
    The objective of your game is to establish the boundaries of your taste and integrity, of course.

    Yeah, it's completely okay to want to escape sometimes, but they can't grasp the fact that they shouldn't live there.

    they're slow, but they want to Go Fast.

    Speaking as an autist, I don't fucking know. Maybe it's because they're both incredibly formulaic-spergs don't like anything that's new or confusing or different.

    Who knows? there are autistics that like the Emergency Alert System.
    Maybe its just a thing? Maybe Autisfags like MLP/Sonic simply because its there?

    This. Autists prefer fast and "cool" characters.

    Just like Rainbow Dash is the most popular pony among the ponyfags, because she's fast and cool. She's also blue like Sonic, so there's that connection, too.

    Autists enjoy bright colors and simplistic characters. That's why Sonic and MLP attract them.
