Can anypony help me find something to pass the time? (see what I did there)
I am so angry at myself, too! A little while ago I thought people who liked MLP were retarded, then I watched episodes 1 and 2 and now I like the damn show. Now, I still don't enjoy it the same way I enjoy shows like South Park, but it really was entertaining. I am still a "casual" watcher, but I really don't even know why I am that. It's a kids show, for gods sake! It's for little girls!
Where have I gone wrong?
Pay close attention to this example fellow Newgrounders, for before us we have a broken man, a person akin to myself not so long ago. You see, by enjoying a television show that is largely intended for small children, most predominantly girls the person in question has undergone an existential crisis, becoming insecure about his masculinity.
This is normal. Most of us here (myself included) always feel a deep pang of shame when engaging in Pony related activities because that's what society dictates. It's Sociology. To avoid feeling this way I often read and participate in news events on Equestria Daily so I can enjoy what the fanbase has to offer while still maintaining some semblance of dignity, because despite being about fictional ponies, the community actually is very good at putting together well-crafted pieces of art, namely music, comics, fanfiction and the like.
Trust me, I was at that point before. It doesn't really pass, but it deceases in its severity. I fear what it does to people who fully embrace it, taking Xenomit as an example. Keep rational is my best advice.
