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.
