Hey guys, I know I don’t normally post on the KYM forums (I hang out in the image galleries pretty much exclusively), but I felt like this was a better place to pose the following question I had. It might sound like a negative rant at first but just hear me out, I’m actually going somewhere with this.
So, about a day ago, this image was uploaded:
A very tired and predictable joke which received an equally predictable response: upvoted comments of “so true”, and “I’ll get the popcorn”, and “I’m laughing my ass off that those guys who thought Twilicorn would make the show shit”; while the one comment from a brave guy saying he simply doesn’t enjoy the show so much anymore got downvoted.
I see these kinds of images (mocking Twilicorn “naysayers”) uploaded all the time, and they always seem to get a very positive response.
All I want to ask is, how many of you people have honestly, truly seen people dramatically proclaiming that they’re leaving the fandom? I can think of maybe one such post that wasn’t being ironic.
There seems to be this very pervasive stereotype that all people who are not fans of Twilicorn (I. E. “Twilicorn Naysayers”) are doomsinging drama queens that whine and cry about every little thing. Yet in my experience, there is very little actual drama that isn’t exhibited in an ironic fashion.
I just want you guys’ opinion on the matter. Am I the only one who thinks it’s a bit much? Am I the only one who wishes people would stop with the mocking of fans who dislike Twilicorn?
And yes, for the record, I didn’t like Twilicorn, and still don’t like Twilicorn. I stick around mainly for the fan content (fanart, fanfics, etc.). However, my opinion of the show isn’t the point of this post. Please don’t downvote me just because of that.
Tl;dr: The notion that Twilicorn Naysayers sing doom and overreact about everything is itself a windmill that everyone seems to treat like a widespread thing, when it doesn’t actually exist in any substantial way. Everyone is perpetuating a joke about people who don’t exist, or who have been heavily exaggerated.
Thank you for your time, sorry for the ranty post. For reading the entire thing, here’s some cute dancing ponies:
