I Like What I Like Stamp by racingwolf I Like What I Like Stamp by racingwolf
This stamp was originally going to say "I don't care if what I like is popular or unpopular", but that wouldn't fit. I know there are other stamps out there like this, but there can never be enough of them IMO. Plus, I had things to say.

This was inspired by the overused and underused pokemon debates on Serebii and Pe2k, but it can apply to anything.

Liking something even though it's unpopular is pretty self-explanitory. There's no reason to stop liking something even though not many other people do. Simple.

I have more to say on liking things that are popular. Personally, I do not see why popularity should affect my (or anyone else's) opinion of something any more than unpopularity does. Hating popular things does not make one unique, for people who do that are doing the exact same thing as those who like things only because they are popular; they are basing their likes and dislikes on popularity.

I do not care how many people like something, or how many pictures there are of it on DA. These things have nothing to do with me. If they were to annoy me, I'd simply ignore them and go on my way, doing my own thing, whether I were drawing or writing about that subject or not. I do not feel that turning my back on popular things would make me more of an individual; quite the contrary, it would just mean I was letting my opinion be influenced by outside factors that shouldn't matter.

I do not believe popularity (or lack of) should affect YOUR OWN opinion. Like what YOU like, and forget labels and stigmas.

Anyone who feels this way may use this stamp.

And if you want to like popular music/wolves/sparkledogs/eevee evolutions/whatever else, go ahead!

I'm the only one in my class that likes anime. Most of my classmates don't even know what anime/manga is.They think it's chinese. They think all anime are either "made for kids" or some perverted shit. And the boys are extra nasty about anime. One of them tends to piss me off all the time. He's all like: "Lol u watching some perv shit" and then i'm like: "Oh, jeez! Just be quiet if you don't even know what anime is about."

Seriously, what's his problem? I like what i like. And as all anime fans know, not every anime is etchi or hentai. And just because i like ANIMES, it doesn't mean i like PERV anime. Actually i blame that kind of anime because now everyone thinks:"Ooooh, you like animes? But all anime are pervy stuff, right? Like Elfenlied and Highschool of the dead?" I WISH THOSE ANIMES NEVER EXISTED. If they never were made, no one would consider all animes as either childish or perverted. Same goes for Lucky Star, well, at least the intro. It makes people think:"Okay, this looks super childish."
Oh, and i hate it when people mistake anime with cartoon. Don't get me wrong, there are some anime that are drawn in cartoon style. But that doesn't make every anime a cartoon.

Other way around, I like things better when they're not popular! ^_^

For me, popularity doesn't affect what I like. I like it because I like it, not because of how many other people do or don't.

Yeah, well, I guess I should rephrase...I do like some really popular shows (Like Invader Zim and Regular Show), but when they're too excessively liked (Adventure Time, MLP), they turn me off a bit.

I like what I like. I don't worry about the fact that Katy Perry is popular - I still love her music because it's catchy. I also don't mind that I read old, obscure fairy tales for my own enjoyment even though not many other people do. I don't care if I'm the only person drawing some random fairy tale from Andrew Lang's Fairy Books - if I liked the story a lot, I want to illustrate it. I wouldn't want to illustrate something I genuinely dislike that just happens to have a lot of dA pictures. I have no interest in drawing serious MLP art because that doesn't interest me. The only MLP art I've put on is mainly joke stuff.

I like One direction because they write all their music and because they are of all the popular pop groups out today the nicest. I like My little Pony as well because I owned a talking barn with two toy ponies and a couple of storybooks (these have nothing to do with mlp),one of those ponies "Bubbles" somehow became a accidental my little pony in the show and became "Derpy Hooves" I prefer the name she had with those story books more though.

I agree. I really wish people would stop with the "stop liking what I don't like" and "your opinions are wrong" nonsense. I don't see why people feel the need to foam at the mouth because I find some kind of enjoyment in the Ruby-Spears Mega Man series. Yeah it's mediocre but it's not necessary to flip your shit over it.

It's okay to not like things but don't be a dick about it.

I agree 100%: we can make NO ONE love people hate or make NO ONE hate people love: NO ONE has a bad taste: every taste is good with something. I am not a Brony and I don't watch MLP (I don't have enough free time), BUT: I love "Annoying Orange", "Kick Buttowski Suburbian Daredevil" and "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax" and DON'T WANT TO MAKE YOU LOVE what I LOVE. If you HATE something, it doesn't mean EVERYONE HATES it! Just keep silent and talk about what you LIKE or LOVE... As I say, "Those who is quiet, survive", so, it's YOUR OPINION, like what YOU like, but don't make anyone HATE they LOVE so much! Too many words? Okay. I will finish my message.

I really don't like it when, for example, I write the articles about Kick Buttowski and everyone in comments writes something like this: "Kick Buttowski is stupid! He is ugly and not funny at all". Thanks for that: I like it when people agree with me! :-)

lot of the time i like a game or tv show and then my sis would tell me that no one likes that game its crap. Then i'd turn around and say thats not true cuz I love this game and will continue to :D I love wolves, ponies, pikachu and shadow all considered over rated but i don't care :D

Yeah, I think the whole "overrated" thing is stupid. Any number of people can like a certain thing if they want to, and I don't see why it matters if it's popular or not; if people like it, they like it. That's all there is to it.

Yes! :highfive:

"WHAT?!??!?!!" *car alarm outside goes off*

PENNY MUST HAVE EXPERIMENTED ON YOU TO MAKE YOU THINK SOMETHING SO TWISTED AN WRONG!

You should ALWAYS base what you like and dislike on popularity. IF YOU DON'T THEN YOU FOLLOW THE CROWD AND YOU ARE UNORIGINAL!

What you like and don't like based on what the thing means to you makes no difference! YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW POPULARITY ALONE!

Maybe you should look for you BRAIN under the SOFA! And look for your dignity and self respect while you're at it!

HATING POPULAR THINGS MAKES ME UNIQUE. WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE? NOTHING? I THOUGHT SO!!!!!!!!1!!ONE!!!!!!!!TWENTYTHREE!!!!!1
