Why Do They Have to Hate Me? by AnScathMarcach Why Do They Have to Hate Me? by AnScathMarcach
I can't be the only one who feels personally offended when someone says they hate something I happen to love, can I?

Lately it's been G3 My Little Pony. I got into My Little Pony DURING G3, so obviously I loved it, and I still do. I can't stand how the new male fanbase doesn't understand that the past generations were made for little girls, so OF COURSE they're going to be girly! Not only that, but they practically worship G4 SO much, that they treat everything else like a toddler does to vegetables, and effectively convince the rest of the world that anything that's not G4 is garbage. They won't even watch it with an open mind (See EVERY Brony review of ANY G3 episode EVER).

Now let's talk about Rainbow Dash. During G3, Rainbow Dash was one of my favorite characters. Why? Because (despite what everyone claims about G3's characters) she was unique. She stood out. She had a unique design, an accent, and even a personality. I kind of saw her as motherly. This was a character who obviously had some effort put into her. This was a character that someone put time into. Yet everyone thinks she's disgusting because she's "Not my Rainbow Dash!".  That's another thing that bothers me. Any character that doesn't fit the bronies' claim that all the G3 characters are the same, they are brushed off as annoying.

Besides not wanting to be associated with Cloppers, this is why I stopped calling myself a Brony. If being a brony means I have to be a bigoted asshole and automatically hate the past generations because "G4 IS TEH ONLY!!1!", I want no part of it.

*Rant Over*

Don't give too much thought to those Bronies, they just on the 'its cool to hate anything before g4' bandwagon.  All of My Little Pony is girly including G4 and there is nothing wrong with that; people need to get rid of the whole girly=bad idea.

The silly thing about some bronies having a problem with "girly" things or viewing it as bad, is that it goes against what the creator of FIM was trying to say, which was you can make something completely girly, and it doesn't have to be viewed as a bad thing (which is what the previous generations also managed to do as well).

It's a shame they don't all get that, the worst part is that some bronies completely miss the point whenever something "cool" happened (including when Lauren was in control of the show) the point of it from a writer's perspective was "see this, girl's shows can be cool." but I have seen bronies take this to be proof that FIM isn't really a girl's show because of this (completely ignoring the fact the some girls actually like action and villains and whatever) - it's actually embarrassing, but thankfully we're not all like that.

(sorry, that ended up being quite long).

G3 Rainbow Dash Reminds me lot of Rarity and maybe she is like long lost cousin of Rarity.

I wouldn't doubt she had something to do with the inspiration of Rarity's personality.

Rainbow Dash was my favorite G3 pony.  I never understood why people seem to like hating on the older generations so much, like you said, they weren't designed to be interesting for college aged males, they're for little girls, so even if they don't like them it's dumb to be hating on them.
