Seeing all the irrational hate piling on the YouTube content like Hello Pinkie and Pony Life, I needed to vent.

chris the lovable jerk

I do personally find it funny that with all the drama from 2012-2013 about Faust’s departure, Equestria Girls, Alicorn Twilight and the like were going to ruin the show and how much better the IDW comics would be…and how different it ended up being. Most people accepted Alicorn Twilight just fine, Equestria Girls got way better after the mediocre first movie and ended up becoming a beloved part of the franchise, the IDW comics became pretty controversial and seem to be disliked by a lot of people, and a lot of the show’s best episodes were made years after Faust left.
It’s just kinda funny how things turn out.

Lauren had no input on the series beyond Season 2, and she actively tries to avoid any and all info from the later seven seasons.

I thought her words were girls and their parents, not kids (but that’s semantics, really—but girls are still the target audience). She did know boys would like it, but I’m pretty sure no one thought single dudes in their late 20s-30s would become obsessed with it to the point of completely ignoring the lessons and do the opposite.

Lauren Faust designed the show so that it would be enjoyed by both the kids and their parents. She hated the excuse “it’s for little girls” which is ironic because its what the new writers proclaim whenever somebody criticizes them.

I do think all this hate is irrational (like the description here describes), of course; fans are the worst in everything, especially the ones that decide to give themselves a label to make them feel elitist.

Who decided on that? Please don’t turn this into Fame and Misfortune and mention things that have nothing to do with anything, make things up and misrepresent what we all saw.

Yeah, and since that was Lauren Faust wanted, I’m not sure what the crying is about. What—it didn’t meat someone’s hyper-specific expectations/favorite fanfic/hive-mind headcanon blown out of proportion?

One of Faust’s ideas was Apple Bumping, where Earth ponies would smash their heads on trees instead of kicking it.  
I think seeing her as the grand ruler is pretty dumb.

Kinda like half of your friends and even you yourself.  
And it’s not like all of her ideas were good.  
You’re raging at literally nothing.

Whenever I hear or read ‘irrational hate’, I feel like the ones saying that are irrational.  
Of course I’m studying psychology. How could you tell?
