Because no matter what others may say, Cloppers are very much part of the fandom. Those who don't like that idea or hate on cloppers are no different than the haters of the show. There will ALWAYS be a perverted side to EVERYTHING. But clopping is no different than hentai.
Just had to get my voice in. Part of my mental patterns. >¬>
No one has to like cloppers, buuut accept us as part of the fandom.
The previous generations were indeed very girly. I'm a bit girly myself, and I tried to watch some of the previous generations...but the animation and characterization was just horrible. Generation 4 had a great story and really really great animation. And it never stated we "hated" the previous generations, just that they were a bit horrible. I don't see where it even states bronies hate anything not g4. oO There is something you are misunderstanding.
No friggin' duh, it was the 80's; characterization was secondary to selling toys. Complaining about characterization in an 80's Hasbro cartoon is like complaining about animation errors in the same: It's just something you gotta deal with, and it gets better later on.
And the classics were better than you bronies give it credit for. If it was as horrible as you think it is, we wouldn't be having this discussion.
