Yeah, I know. This stamp looks like crap, and that's because I'm not very experienced when it comes to making these (as you've probably guessed already with this one from a few months back), so just bear with me, here.

So, anyway, the subject of My Little Pony was brought up at a forum that I frequent, and from there, I told everyone that I thought it was garbage. Can you guess what happened next? I get chewed out for it by a select few people. Not only that, but one of them in particular went ballistic over my opinion, even though I made it plainly clear that I was in no way trying to belittle or make myself seem better than anyone who likes that show. Not only that, but I ended up being accused of being sexist and bigoted in the process. I mean, really? Really? Are you kidding me? I don't discriminate against women; I'm all for them having equal rights, and I don't consider either gender to be any better than the other. Not to mention the fact that I have tons of female fancharacters, along with the fact that I almost always prefer female protagonists over the male ones. I'm one of the last people who should ever be considered sexist, "bigoted", or "prejudiced" in any way whatsoever.

Do you know what this tells me? This just goes to show that you cannot say anything, anything about the show that isn't "OMG, AWSUM!!!111ONEONE!!! BRONY4LIFE!!11ONEONE! *Insert other pony talk BS here*" without somebody making an issue out of it. If you even dare to say anything about My Little Pony that's even the slightest bit negative, you pretty much become public enemy number one. Well, excuse the hell out of me for not being a grown man who obsesses over a cartoon that was clearly designed for little girls. Now, don't get me wrong... I'm not saying that everyone in the fandom is like this; only some of the ones I've come across. I've seen some sane pony fans, but unfortunately, there are so few of them in number.

Ever since all that drama started nearly a week ago, I've been having an internal struggle regarding whether or not I should give the show a chance, and I did just that by watching the first episode yesterday. I'll tell you... Just simply typing that into the search engine alone was enough to make me want to puke. To add insult to injury, the theme song was even more cringe-worthy. Admittedly, the show wasn't as terrible as I thought it would be, but at the same time, I still don't like it. It's way too kiddy/girly for my taste, and I'm saying this as someone who's watched The Powerpuff Girls in the past, and enjoys Sailor Moon. My Little Pony, on the other hand, is where I draw the line. Again, it wasn't as terrible as I thought it would be, but I still have no desire whatsoever to watch another episode. It's just not for me.

There, I finally got that off my chest. Although, something tells me that I may be getting some backlash over here, too, but whatever.

Where's your Power Rangers Lightning Collection now, Hasbro?!

I mean, I am a pony fan. But I respect your opinion. Not everyone is going to like the same things.

Here are my thoughts on that show in a nutshell: Thanos Snap Icon

Thanks, I'm glad you like it.

You're welcome and I 100% agree with you; MLP: FIM is overrated garbage. I just wish that people would stop shoving it own our throats on DA, it's very annoying. 
SolarBlaze's avatar
SolarBlazeHobbyist Writer
Yeah, exactly. It's also pretty damn annoying (and also laughable) that disliking/hating this show is somehow considered "sexist".
Soundwave364674's avatar
That is absolutely ridiculous. The fans of this series will go at any length to defend it. The fandom is even less appealing than the show is. I'm so sick of everybody overpraising and going about how great MLP: FIM all the time. It is very tedious and annoying as I couldn't care less about that stupid overrated trash show.

Yeah, you've hit the nail right on the head. As bad as the show is on its own, the fandom is even worse.
Soundwave364674's avatar
I couldn't agree more. I hate MLP with a passion. I just found some videos crossing Transformers over with MLP and I am very outraged about it.

Soundwave, superior. Deformed sparkly-eyed donkeys, inferior.

Unfortunately, that goes on a lot with this site as well. You could type something in the search engine that's completely unrelated, and yet you'll still find pony-related shit, even with obscure franchises E.S.W.A.T. for the Sega Genesis, or the Japan-exclusive Panel de Pon for the SNES/Super Famicom. It's pretty damn annoying.

And so is everything YOU watch

...Brilliant comeback, especially considering the fact that you don’t even know what I watch to begin with. Thanks for confirming exactly what I said in this stamp’s description, by the way.

I'm not reading that did you even look how much you posted don't you humans normally don't even read more than a few lines
And I don't have to know what you watch if you hate mlp I can probably guess

...Um, what? That didn’t make even a little bit of sense. Putting your punctuation skills aside (or lack thereof), by saying “you humans”, are you seriously trying to imply that you aren’t one, yourself?
