Listening to: [F] - Maximum the Hormone
Playing: Sonic Adventure 2: Battle
Alright, I've been wanting to do this rant for a while now, so, here it goes.
So, you know me. I love memes. But one meme that's just blowing way out of proportions is My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Now, I'd like to clarify one thing before I get into this rant:
I LIKE THE SHOW. The show itself is very well-written. It was after all, created by Lauren Faust, a brilliant animator for Cats Don't Dance, The Powerpuff Girls, and Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends. She believes that entertainment for girls should be just as good as the stuff they make for boys, in other words, not "Sparkle princess magic love power!" shows with flat characters and non-threatening villains. She really is helping the fight against the Animation Age Ghetto. So, with that in mind, let me return to the rant.
When it comes to fanbases, we've all seen the worsts. We've seen the rabid Sonic Fans, the Naurotards, the Twitards, and the Wolfaboos, but when it comes to irritating fandoms, I think the Bronies deserve a special mention. They're like a plague, spreading their memes to places like Memebase, 4chan, and ED, and unlike Sonic or Twilight, they can get away with it because FIM is a current meme in of itself. It's ridiculous. You go to Failblog, what do you see? BOOM. Ponies. You decide to go to Troll sites, what pops up? BOOM. More ponies. Youtube? BOOM. More motherfucking ponies. It's like they're trying way too hard to be noticed. And the thing is, they ARE. But it just goes unnoticed because, again, the show is practically a meme just for being FIM.
Another thing that bugs me is the really creepy bronies, the ones who will go to a Twilight Sparkle fanart and post "SEXXY." Seriously, this is coming from a Furry. Nothing is sexy about 10-year old ponies. And comics and memes about them "Clomping", or masturbating, is even creepier. For every brony who makes a "Clompin' off" Macro, god destroys another nugget of innocence from the world.
Finally, they're trying way too hard to be noticed and a part of internet culture. Only SOME of the memes are funny. The "When I'm-" memes are sorta funny. Inserting already existing memes into the fanbase isn't. Seriously, stop it. Princess Celestia doing something mildly humorous doesn't qualify her as being a full-on Troll. It's annoying when 90% of the memes for FIM are things that other people established. You could put a Troll face on Pikachu, but that doesn't mean that it's the next, new meme that deserves to be spammed on notable "meme" websites. The bottom line is, it's repetitive and obnoxious to insert your ponies everywhere. And screaming BRONIES BEFORE HONIES and BROHOOF at random doesn't help. Keep it in your own fandom.
Seriously, the bronies need to stop. It's old, and frankly, obnoxious to see a gazillion ponies everywhere and everyplace on the internet.
