I can’t tell you HOW many people I’ve seen wearing MLP t-shirts. They’re sporting around a TV show aimed at 6-year-old little girls.

I do not remember seeing a man wearing a shirt that says “Brony” or anything related to MLP.
The only one I’ve seen was on a 7th grade girl in my class (in PE, because it’s a 7th and 8th grade mixed class, and I’m in the latter).

Portal:

I have seen many versions of this comic. It annoys the hell outta me that they didn’t think about the fact that portals disappear when the platforms they’re on are moving.

Also, this is still stupid even without that.

The answer is simple: You’d get crushed against your own body. You would be in a boxy space with one dimension looping in on itself, so when the space between the portals in that particular dimension minimizes, you’d eventually have the left side of your body collide with the right side of your body because of the loop and you crush yourself.

I don’t mind, but i’m mostly concerned about MLP bringing back Metrosexuals.

I consider myself a metrosexual, but it has nothing to do with me liking cartoons. A metrosexual is someone who spends a lot of time on appearance and clothes, it has nothing to do with flamboyance or feminine behaviour( unless you consider worrying about your appearance
Feminine, which would be stupid)
These would be
Metrosexual:

I don’t see what’s wrong with metrosexuals…

Stats have nothing to do with shiny likelihood. In Gold Silver and Crystal, shiny-ness was determined by IVs, individual values. Each Pokemon has a hidden value for each of the six stats ranging from 0-31., 31 meaning that at level 100, that particular pokemon will have 31 extra points in that stat than something with 0 IVs. So in gen 2, if a Pokemon had 15 IVs in every stat, it became shiny. Therefore, since IVs can be passed down through breeding, a shiny parent had a slightly better chance of producing a shiny offspring. But that was all changed with Ruby and Sapphire, being shiny was a completely separate value. Nothing to do with stats at all.

Thank you for reminding me what it was called… Because I forgot…. IV…. not Ex…

Besides that Ashbot, wouldn’t you be crushed by yourself?

It’s like some kind of mirror theory that needs to be deciphered!


I know what you mean though, portal physics jokes get quite annoying.

Zelda: People thinking Skywrd Sword is the end of the franchise. Sure it was sub-par, but it wasn’t god awful. That’s what the Tingle games are for.

Metroid: See above, but with Other M. As someone who watches That Guy With The Glasses, it gets annoying when some reviewers are constantly say how bad the game is.

Pokemon (updated): Hate for later generations. As someone who’s favourite gen is 4, I don’t see why it’s so bad. Especially gen 5, I mean, of course they’re running out of ideas for new pokemon, considering how many there are.

@Zelda: Ummm… What? Sure, Skyward Sword wasn’t the best game in the world, but it wasn’t enough to end the franchise.

@Metroid: The part that bothers me is that everyone writes the whole thing off as a sexist propaganda. If you payed attention for maybe two seconds you would have seen that Samus just lost her spiritual child and was in a state of inner turmoil, thus falling back into a semi child like dependency to the person she refered to as her father. Every time I tell somebody this they act extremely surprised and it annoys the hell out of me!

And the people complaining that it ruined “Samus’s Personality” have clearly never played Metroid Fusion, as I played them one right after another and the personality was exactly the same.

NICKELODEON: The people who rant about how shows nowadays have ruined Nick forever (special mention going to Fanboy and Chum Chum and TUFF Puppy, even though there are FAR worse shows out there) and that they hate their old shows and need to bring them (read: INVADER ZIM) back, which isn’t even close to being true. I can’t even browse Nick related artwork on Deviantart without finding at least one picture ranting about either “BRING BACK ZIM D*****IT!” or “FANBOY&CHUMCHUM/TUFF PUPPY/SPONGEBOB SUCK AND MUST DIE!!! THEY KILLED NICK!!!” It makes me want to pull my hair out. This coming from a 90’s Nick kid, who doesn’t rant about these things. (Dare I say it, I even like a lot of Nick’s new shows.)

Adventure Time and Regular Show: because many claim it is better than MLP when in reality they are just two god-awful cliched atrocious garbage filling CN’s schedule. Sure it is better than some other cartoons on CN but that doesn’t mean it is good. Adventure Time is too random. Regular Show is just a bluejay and a raccoon shouting out Yo Momma jokes and “you pissed me off”. The animation was dreadful. They remind me of

South Park: Total abomination, bad characters, horrid animation, foul-mouthed, racist, and just plain badly written and stupid. Should have ended years ago.

Family Guy: Total abomination, bad characters, horrid animation, foul-mouthed, racist, and just plain badly written and stupid. Should have ended years ago. Never should have been brought back from cancellation.

MLP: Overrated and over hyped show. It is average but its better than Adventure Time, Regular Show, and South Park. Many bronies claim it has the best writing and animation but it is way far from that. This show is a cheaply animated glorified commercial but unlike other cheaply animated glorified commercials there is actually depth in the writing and characters. Fan base is creepy and they did not listen to the morals of the show but instead made rule 34 and horrifying fanfics.

MLP Hatedom: These guys have poor reasoning skills. They are just as bad as the bronies. They use the same stereotypes to describe all bronies and ignore the truth that not all bronies make rule 34 or are pedophiles. They also have poor sentence structure. When a brony tries to claim that they do not make rule 34 or are pedophiles, the brony will be ignored no matter how much evidence he will give. Howard Stern is a hater and he is a crude man which makes him a hypocrite for hating MLP. Also the MLP haters fail to recognize that there are MLP haters that make rule 34 and porn to other shows and are pedophiles. Some of the MLP haters could be watching porn itself. Stop complaining that this is a show aimed at little girls. First of all it is not aimed at little girls. The creator actually wanted to make it family friendly and make it watchable for grown men and women.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Why can’t you just die already. The new episodes are just plain awful. This show is overrated. Characters are stereotypical morons and are really annoying. Old episodes are overrated. Its over 10 years old and stale. The old episodes are not as great as everyone makes it seem. There were bad episodes in seasons 1-3 and seasons 1-3 are not perfect. Due to Nickelodeon playing way too many reruns of seasons 1-3, the old seasons have lost their charm and humor that they once had.

Invader Zim: Bringing back this show will not be enough to save Nick and is impossible.

Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Disney Channel: Instead of bringing back the 90’s why not instead make new shows that don’t suck. In fact not all of the 90’s were good and bringing them back with new episodes will just ruin them. Make something unique, original, and doesn’t rip off SpongeBob or some other show.

Katawa Shoujo: R34/Sexy pics. Overall an awesome fandom, but come on. The game wasn’t created to be sexualized.

Other than that, I can’t really think of any ‘fandom’ I’m a part of. I’m a massive Bioshock fanboy, but that’s not what you’d call a fandom.

Oh, I’ve got one.

Classical Music Fandom: Fucking. Purists. I hate finding an interesting rendition of a classical piece on youtube and then seeing it get bitched out because it didn’t follow the markings on the sheet music to the letter. These fucking pedants have deified the names of Mozart and Beethoven and turned dynamic and tempo markings into holy law. It’s a real shame that interesting interpretations on these old as dirt pieces of music are scoffed at because the player decided to play this slew of notes as Forte instead of mezzoforte.

It was but at the same time wasn’t meant to be sexualized. The game had pretty decent story telling and actually made a point of building connections between characters, and brought feels to many a fanboy(or girl). But at the same time, the game has sex scenes. Some pretty naughty ones at that. The game wasn’t straight up porn, but it did have sex in it. I guess this is just the kind of thing that each person sees it differently

All of the Naruto fan are so easily butthurt. They’re like Homestuck fans, you can’t disagree with them or they’ll argue with you until you admit you’re wrong (even if you aren’t). My bros Chris and Dalton argue about the show all the time. And I don’t really mind it, but there’s ALOT of Sasunaru.

First post in two or three months and it’s here. Looks like my priorities are in order.

Pokemon: Generation wars, as mentioned. You can’t claim that the older gens are the least creative. You can’t even claim the designs got worse. I mean come on! Jynx? Mr. Mime? Forget those two? Or maybe the fact that new electric types barely appeared until Gen 3-4-5? I found there’s a lot of Pokemon I really like from the fifth gen, a-thank-you-very-much. You can claim the older ones have won you over due to nostalgic purposes, but outright claiming they were better? Not everybody agrees.

Doctor Who: Best Doctor arguments and old fans versus new ones. Don’t knock the other Docs, mate. They’re serious business. And the older series had its set of flaws too. It ain’t perfect. Oh, and regardless of what you may believe, Russel T. Davies DID write a few great episodes. They weren’t always shit.

Avengers: This mostly pertains to all the roleplaying forums I frequent. What ever happened to making up your own character? Why does the whole case of Avengers have to be riding dragons and fighting each other? Seriously it was a great movie, great set of comics, but lets not go crazy with it, right?

Homestuck: I love Homestuck, I really do, but I don’t tell everybody about it. Don’t pester your friends into reading it if you’ve got the slightest suspicion that they won’t be into it. Suggest it like you’d suggest anything else. Also, the shipping is driving me up a wall. I know it’s a thing, but can’t you tell it’s more of a running gag? And buckets? Keep em in your broom closets.

All the things: Shipping. Damnit fandoms just stop shipping all the things. Especially if they don’t make any sense.

Furry: Apart the things that are too orrifing to describe, one thing I don’t like is when the fans create an O.C. char from just a recolor of a famous char.
Thought… I’m guilty of it too:
http://hypercat-z.deviantart.com/art/Renamon-and-Redamon-for-sale-32204010
So you can bash me.

Super Smash Bros 4: Characters predictions are pissing me off sometimes. Here are the three tipologies of fans I dislike the most:

Number 3: The hardcore engineers. These fans not only say which character has to be in but they also projects their moves, poses and catchphrases like they were actually working into the game, rather than just waiting for, and they pretend the other fans to do the same or otherwise they wont consider them worth to be SSB fans.

Number 2: The Nintendo purists. These fans seems allergic to any not Nintendo videogame char and they consider the Super Smash Bros. series an island for Nintendo chars only, thought in the last episode there are already Snake from Konamy and Sonic from Sega. So there are no real “Nintendo only” limits.

Number 1: The silly fanboys. The worst of all! They think any character can be in the game just because they like it. OK! Everyone can dream, but when you tell Goku, Naruto, Batman and Spiderman or should be in, you can’t expect to be taken seriously.

Sonic: Oh lordy, where do i begin? The Sonic fandom has: annoying fangirls, whiny bastards, illogical arguments and so much more!

Pokemon: As stated before, GenWars are ravaging the fandom. I just want to fucking beat the crap out of peoples pokemon without all the Genwars going on.

Transformers: Like Pokemon, but to a lesser extent. The Micheal Bay movies where complained about to no end, but they arent movies you really should actually THINK about. Just call some bros, make some nachos, and watch giant alien robots beat the shit out each other.

Homestuck: This has gotta be the fandom i interact with the most but I get annoyed when i see people complain about the newest updates because it doesn’t meet their “criteria” or “expectations”. And when people say how “awesome” or “cool” their fantroll/fanhuman is but in reality it looks like a steaming pile of ass and get the a little upset when they’re told they could improve on it. It also bothers me when people argue over which ships are superior and which ships are bad. And when people complain about Calliope/Caliborn it reallly makes me wonder why people complain so much.

MLP: Nothing to say much here. I don’t like how some bronies feel the need to shove the show down other peoples throats when bronies like me are passive about it. Not only that but it bugs me when people get pissy about the ships/R34. If you don’t like it ignore it. Let others have their fun.

Pokemon: Why does every fan i meet of the damn show have to complain about each gen? All of them are good and it’s your opinion.

LOK: Hmm…nothing to say here….

Gravity Falls: I’m hardly a member of this fandom. I barely even know what most of the members of it are like. I have heard people complain about dipper going to taco bell.

Sep 23, 2012 at 02:02AM EDT

Hellsing: People who complain the original Anime series is better than the OVA (which is basically the manga). Also, “edgy” kids saying they became Nazis because of the series. ಠ_ಠ

Doctor Who: People who talk about how David Tennant was the best Doctor and how Matt Smith sucks. Mother of God, people.

TF2: So much yaoi, so many Snipers, and…that’s it, actually.

America: People saying America is the best country in the world.

There.

Ponies
What I feel against the MLP fandom has mostly been stated already. The creepiness, the obsessive, neurotic fixation over ponifying everything and the perversion of the show into a bunch of disturbing fetishes, so I’ll just put something I haven’t seen yet about this.

I think the number one thing I find very irritating about bronies is that so many of them have an extremely condesceding attitude.

It’s like: “What’s the matter, bro? You mad because I’m way more mature than you because I’m secure enough in my own masculinity to watch cartoons geared towards little girls and you aren’t?”

Don’t deny it bronies, you know it’s true. You know that there are a ton of people out there who do this. It’s condescending, arrogant, annoying bs. I’ve seen countless times when someone says that they don’t like MLP and then some jackass comes in and posts that picture of that annoying fucking condescending Wonka (who I just want to punch in the throat every time I see him) with the caption of “You don’t like My Little Pony? You must be so manly.”. Either that or something like that. When you put the entire internet together, not just KYM, the brony fandom has to be in the top ten for most annoyingly condescending.

Classic rock music (50s-70s)
I love this music. But I hate going onto a youtube and seeing comments referring to the dislike bar like “203 people listen to Justin Bieber”. I am so tired of seeing posts about Justin Bieber on every fucking Beatles song I click on. Also, the stupid teenagers who think that they’re the only ones who listen to this kind of music and feel the need to always say so. “All my friends listen to rap and Justin Bieber and dubstep aren’t I such a counterculture genius?”

Katawa Shoujo
I think OP discussed it but I feel the same way. If ANYONE EVER says that they don’t like Hanako’s route the best, they get a lot of shit for it. If someone likes a girl more than Hanako (my favorite btw), then fine. Keep loving who you love. Enjoy your waifu.

@TehRussBus

The Rock fanbase is not alone there. Constant obnoxious whining and bitching about Justin Beiber also happens a lot within the Electro fanbase

In comment sections for most kind of Electro (DNB, Trance, Dubstep, etc) I almost always hear people say “Thumbs up if [Electro genre] is 1000 times better than Justin Beiber and his lame-ass pop” and of course there’s those people who equate the dislike bar to Justins wang length. Every. Single. Time.

We might even get it worse because with Electro you also have Skrillex who is hated by 80% of all DNB/Trance fans. So when people aren’t bitching about Justin Beiber, they Bitch about Skrillex in the exact same way…or Rebecca Black…or Nickelback…or Lady Gaga…

I suspect other music fandoms get it too.

Deadmau5 fans that either
A: think all Deadmau5 is dubstep
B: Complain when there’s no drop

I suppose that could go for most EDM fanbases, but it happens to “the horde” to an almost belligerent degree. Especially since Deadmau5 has only, like, two actual dubstep songs, it’s like listening to ACDC and complaining that there’s not enough bass clarinet.
