My favorite character out of the Mane Six would be Fluttershy, although I think Princess Luna is my favorite character overall.
Not lumping you in with these guys but here's some interviews with some attendees of Bronycon:
Stern wants to make good radio and would of course imply that all male fans of the show are perverts to are pleasuring themselves to MPL-themed porn. While that certainly does take place, it’s a tiny percentage of the fandom. The show is well-written, well-animated, and has interesting themes and characters. Yes, MLP: FIM is aimed at young girls, but it’s capable of being watched by people of all ages without feeling like your intelligence is being insulted. I’d also place cartoons like The Powerpuff Girls, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, and the two Avatar: The Last Airbender series into that category. And yes, I’ve watched all of those. (As an aside, Lauren Faust, the creator of the Friendship is Magic incarnation of the MLP cartoon franchise, worked on both The Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s, and she’s the spouse of Craig McCracken, who was the creator and producer of both those shows and also was the director and art director of Dexter’s Laboratory.)
I’m always bemused when I get a negative response when I say I’m a fan of MLP: FIM when people probably wouldn’t bat an eye if I said I was a viewer of mind-numbing garbage like Here Comes Honey Boo Boo or one of various The Real Housewives incarnations.
