Sorry for my english its not original language for me.
So I was wondering several things about this fandom that people always told me and showed evindece, about them being "Creepy old men","Pedophiles with mental problems" or simply cringy people. But as all things I must question myself and others to get a true veridict so here some questions I want an answer,(Plz do not reply with NSFW and also bear in mind I havent seen the show ,the most I got from mlp "media" was 4chan videos about the matter and Pienimations and that Im just a curious person that want to know about something they dont understand instead of a hater).Questions
- Is the fandom still alive? I mean there have been several years since the original realease and there isnt much new content with the exception of that new series.
- Why this cartoon ?, there is so many that gained a following but without the devotion or following this one got.
- Arent ponies furries?, I say this because to my knowledge ponies and horses are animals and inclusevely if you make the argument some animals in the series arent real , there are still many non-real species consider "furry" such as sergals and protogens.
- Is the fandom as bad at it seems?, I ask this because inclusevely if I know that fandoms always have that toxic or "cringy" side , the mlp (at least in the eyes of an outsider) has more than a normal fandom and inclusevely has some individuals do horrendus things and also the fact that in the "threat simulator" videos ,(note: I havent entered into the actual 4chan page because if Im honest Im scared of what Im gonna find), people act like degenerates ,considering things like asking to cum on plushes or accepting NSFW of child characters, so I just wanna know if this is less than one-fourth of th fandom or are bronies in general.
- Is it really for grow-ups and young teens,(before you start complaining dont worry I read the tumblr post of hotedgydemon), I say this because the few clips I seen (that isnt much so I will be probably wrong and I´ll probably get another feel if I see several episodes but just in case), I dont get the enjoyment of seen a cartoon like Regular Show, OK ko lets be heros, Gumball , Star vs the forces of evil,etc. And rather comes like a kindergarten cartoon for me.
