The Good Men Project is a website that aims to look at masculinity in a different light than what we are used to. One of the articles showing up in our inbox questions male characters and their role and representation in MLP. While I don't think the article is perfect and makes a few logical missteps, I'd say it's written well enough to warrant a post.
There is a conversation to be had regarding male characters and their representation in MLP, I just don't think this article does it justice. It's a start, however. Check the article out after the break and let me know what you think. If you all want to see my take on this issue, let me know in the comments or tweet at me.
