  • Mood: Rant
  • Listening to: [F] - Maximum the Hormone
  • Reading: Cwciki
  • 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.

Good evening, Sonicfags. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I was, like many of you, a fan of the series—the greatness of the games, etc.—I enjoyed them as much as any fan. But in the events of recent years, these fans of the past usually associated with art, stories, and so on—I thought I could mark this June, a month that is simply perfect, by taking some time out of my daily life with my friends, to sit down and have a field day hacking and doxing you. There are, of course, those who will try to oppose me. I suspect even now, orders are being posted on the threads, as well as chatrooms. Why? Because while the your supposed "superriority" may be used in lieu of conversation, doxes and hackings will always retain their power. Doxes offer the means to freedom, but only for those who will use them, such as the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with your fanbase, isn't there, Sonucfags? Retardation and hatred, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to do as you please, to think and post as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of restrictions coercing your conformity and invading My Little Pony, as well as its fanbase. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well, certainly, there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you are in contempt. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, raids. There are a myriad of problems which conspire to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear and hatred are getting the best of you, and in your rage, you turned to the now corrupt Sega. They promised you good Sonic games, they promised you greatness, and all they demanded in return was your silent, obedient and blind devotion. And now, I seek to end that blind devotion. More than twenty years ago, a once-great company wished to revolutionize the gaming industry forever. Their hope was to remind the world that greatness, a great legacy, and awesome fan art are more than ideas—they are perfection. So if you've seen nothing, if the crimes of this once-great company remain unknown to you, then I would suggest that you allow the month of June to pass unmarked. But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek, then I ask you to stand in a line tonight, upon this forum, and I shall give you a June that shall never, ever be forgot.

Well done rant, I tried the show myself and it just wasn't good or didn't connect with me...it's just a bit to put of my league. But the fanbase is the most annoying...you should see this here:

They go this far just to get their stupid pony fetish noticed... I'm sure that guy who owns the car feels so embarrassed...
