quote StitchI love being a part of it! I've not yet attended a Con, but I did fill out a form to volunteer at one that's held right here in my hometown! As for the pop culture references? I've caught on to a few that I instantly recognized from seeing them in my childhood!quote TwilightApple20Awesome to hear how it kinda changed your mind.I then asked myself what I was doing since I hated it a ton at the time and thought only "nerd losers" watched it. But as I gradually watched ever episode after that, I found that it began to grow on me exponentially.
There's plenty of people out there that that kinda pass judgement on the show or it's fan-base without delving deeper into it.
The show is kinda unique in it's way, though.
Especially for it being My Little Pony, which has been around since the 80's or so, only for it to become something much larger 5 years ago, all thanks to some tweaking with the character's personality, their designs, the story, and some decent voice actors.
And of course; pop culture references, one of them is a reference to The Big Lebowski, which isn't exactly a movie little girls would be watching, giving the believe this show is aimed for a little girls audience.
Although, they aimed for a broader audience with FIM, that's for certain, taking it to the level of Cartoon Network style of cartoons, and it made a whole lot of difference.
And there are not many shows I recall that would have such a big fan-base set up that even has their own official version of an annual Comic-Con style of event being held for it, all in a short time period.
That alone is amazing.
I'm glad to be a part of it, and still am.

quote Shadow of DeathIt's because we're going against the norms of society. I'm still trying to figure out why it's wrong for an adult male to enjoy a kid's cartoon. Were we not all once kids?But yeah, some people hate things like this because the idea of guys liking 'girly' stuff makes them uncomfortable.
