I said it elsewhere, but I don't see why people are so defensive because someone doesn't want to follow the cult. This is why I'm against the show, I've seen it and it is somewhat entertaining, but I don't get why people are so vehemently behind the show. There's nothing wrong with being a fan of it, everything has it's fans, but it's all the crap that is spewed out, all the images and GIFs that are everywhere, all the terms and brony this and everypony that. It really is bewildering.
Holy jeez, I agree with every sentence of this.
There's nothing wrong with the show. I have no issues with the show itself. I just have no interest in it because it's not my thing. What irritates the living crap out of me is how the obsessive fans are beating everyone else over the head with it. Yeah, yeah, we get it. You're an adult male who loves My Little Pony. Stop aggravating me with your avatars, your memes, your vehement defense of the show that's provoked by the slightest negative remark and - cripes - those annoying "Haters Gonna Hate" images. Just stop it. There's no wonder there's a whole segment of the internet that want nothing to do with the show. We're all just sick and tired of hearing about Fluttershy, or Derpy Hooves or whatever the hell else these ponies are called.
What this really boils down to are fans going, "Yeah, I like ponies! Now suck on it!"
