Guilty Pleasure, Actually Good Feedback, The Same by endler Guilty Pleasure, Actually Good Feedback, The Same by endler
This can work for any general...anything you like but because Cheerilee is in the background, I'm just going to put MLP as the example. Of course said example can be twisted to anything popular.

Someone's trying to corner you. They realize that you like My Little Pony, really, really, really love it, and so you sit and wait to see what they're going to do to try to make you hate it.
The fans? Unless you're a whiny fourteen-year old, nope.

They keep going through their list of what to say and eventually get down to the most basic thing they can think up of, something that is based so purely on opinion it isn't funny.

"It's a horrible show though! It's so bad, this part of bad, this part is bad, insert horribly constructed criticism here!"

:iconohfuckgrandpaplz: That...isn't going to work.

For one...there is no such thing as a perfect show/comic/movie/piece of media. Every single one, even when looked over by fans, will have at least a few flaws that will be found. Even for shows I hold on high pedestals ( :iconahemplz: Batman the Animated Series :iconahemplz: ), I can detect the flaws within them. Even MLP, I did rip some parts to shreds in my critique...

But unless everything's on par with the Garbage Pail Kids movie, which...most things aren't because that's so low on the scale you cannot see it, it isn't going to halt me from liking it. Flaws aren't going to stop me from liking what I like - fuck, I still like InuYasha despite now, being older, I can see what a horrible trainwreck it is. Same goes with the original Pokemon anime.

If you're going to say we shouldn't like it simply because you believe it's bad (it sort of amuses me when people clamour on how about it's so fucking awful when it's actually quite critically acclaimed by a much higher mass of people who have been in the critical field for decades, and most of these people saying it is bad are only going by the basis that they hate the fans) that logic we shouldn't be allowed to pour our love into any media. We shouldn't be allowed to really like any single one. So the people who use this excuse - if you really like better stop now before you start looking like an idiot.

Case in point: no one cares if what they like is bad. The only thing I do really love that I truly believe reeeally isn't that great on a critical scale is Hetalia, but I still fucking love it and no amount of 'BUT THE SHOW ITSELF SUCKS SO BAAAAADLY' will stop me from doing so. Call it a guilty pleasure. :heart:

Come up with better excuses, and quick. You guys are running out of good ones...not that you had any to begin with, but you get my point.

I love MLP, but compared to Futurama, MLP is shit.

MLP is good, but I do like other shows like Saint Seiya (hence my profile pic and name) and Sailor Moon.

I feel this about MLP and Teen Titans Go! I actually enjoy that.
Yoshiondiviantart Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Also true with a specific episode from that show. I know the episode A Canterlot Wedding has a lot of problems, but I still love watching it.

My thoughts on Skelter Heaven. People hate it when I actually find it enjoyable. :D

That's how I feel about The Nut Job. Not the best, but I'll still like it.

What I wanna ask is, why the tiny text? Sweating a little...

I didn't find The Garbage Pail Kids movie to be as bad as a lot of people say it is.

Another positive and honest stamp.  Kudos to you, comrade! :D

Amen to this. ;u;

Well nothing is factually the best show ever. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
Xaldinpwn Featured By Owner May 20, 2013
I believe in liking things rationally. I like what I like, but I certainly won't go into raging fantard mode about it.

All of your pony stamps have so much truth... no more truth can be added.

Pokemon and mlp, guilty pleasures!
drake54 Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012
yes yes YES! I hate it when people think that just because they don't like a show automatically means no one else is allowed to like it, and the thing is, it really starts feeling like they just don't want you to like the show because they are so incredibly biased to their own way of thinking that they can't handle the fact that other people think differently

Pokemon and Digimon are my guilty pleasures :D

Sure I Really like em both, but can think of other video games that may be better than them :D

Other examples of guilty pleasures: PPG, Dexter's LAb (I think), the 1995 Casper film (which I still hold dear to my heart).....
sodapoq Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist

no just kidding, I agree with this completely

My Little Pony is my guilty pleasure X3

SpongeBob would be a nice example too.

It's fine if people want to ask if they like something they dislike (for example, I dislike Drawn Together, yet I know some people who are willing to speak intellengenly to me on why they do like it). When you act like a complete twat about it, then there's a problem.

No matter how much you whine, scream or complain, people are gonna like something you dislike. It's the fact of life. Everything has faults, even things that are considered "classics" or "the best" like Dark Knight Rises or old movies like "Citizen Kane" has some faults.
endler Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Yes it is. I finally managed to find people who put out really well thought out negative critiques against MLP before, both from people who love it and from those who dislike it. c:

It was his sled. Exactly.~
darkwee009 Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012
The key to being a good fan in my mind is that you not only enjoy the show, but you know about it's faults.

One person said it best: Opinions are like having a penis or (if you're a chick) breasts. It's fine to have them, just don't shove it everywhere and don't brag about them. Chances are, they are not that impressive if you do.
Nightstripes0987 Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I don't care what anyone has to say about the fandom or the show, okay yes I do but it won't change my opinion so greatly that I won't watch the show, I have met wonderful people through it, and it has made my life better. Now I look back and I think 'Wow, a kid's show and a bunch of people over the internet has made my life better than what most people who actually know me could do, I have like no life!' I'll give you an example (if you want to read of course)
1) My art and musical skills
They helped me over my stage fright to the point were I volunteer to sing or draw for them, while the only people who have told me I am a good singer is my mom and close friends, and people who comment on my art and say nice things were my (once again) close friends
2) The show itself made me realize that pitying my self won't help
Well, I have to point out, Pinkie taught me this lesson. Putting a smile on someone's face is worth more than trying to put a smile on your own

I could list a few more, but this is getting REALLY long, but, if this is what 'a gay kids show' did for me, I'm not stoping my love for it anytime soon
endler Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I admittedly do care if they can actually place...good constructive criticism against it, something other than 'it just sucks' or giving two short sentences of an answer.

Helping you in that manner can truly strip away any and all flaws. c;
Nightstripes0987 Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I agree, 'its gaaay.' or 'it succks' doesn't help anyone, it just shows that they can't come up with something wrong with the show (not that there isn't anything, but come on! gay isn't even an insult in my book)

I get so much shit for liking FBaCC.

Fanboy and Chumchum? Yeah, I think that could be said for most modern cartoons like that one, heh. = v =;
