It's kinda not. Maybe you might like it in a satirical, which is fine, or even just nonchalant manner, which is all well and good.
However, I've seen people who actually revolve quite a bit of their lives around this fandom. That in itself seriously creeps me out, and then it just snowballed into one of the creepiest little trend-trains to hit the internet. It compares quite a bit to furries; people create their own identities after these ponies, and then roleplay out as them while creating excessive amounts of fanart to the show.
There's no problem with liking something made for 12 year old girls, or even creating some tributes to what is essentially a throwback to the era of good cartoons (one of the eras, anyway). You could compare it to liking the Powerpuff Girls; say you like the show, and some people might look at you weirdly.
But then go ahead and create your own Powerpuff Girl and roleplay with others who do the same? What the fuck.
