I don't really care. Mostly because 9/10 of the characters are female, and I never really liked same-gender shippings. Derpy and Doctor Whooves is about all I like in terms of MLP shipping, unless Sonic and RD counts.
I prefer more canonical ships, like Cheerimac. The whole 'OMG, the mane six are all lesbifriends' bugs the heck out of me. Homosexuality is fine, but let's at least have some support from the show to base it on, and some monogamy.
I like pairing as long as it's not shoved in people's faces. For example Bon Bon and Lyra. I'm fine with it, but people shouldn't receive so much hate if they want to pair them with somepony else, OC or canon, male or female.
I don't really think much of shipping any of the ponies, or really any characters in general. Although, the only 2 I'd ship is a pairing I've seen very little to none, and this pairing is with Queen Chrysalis and Discord. I think it'd make sense, I mean, Chrysalis is a Changeling so she can become anything or body really, and Discord is a combination of a lot of different creatures, so I think the 2 would go together nicely.
Mostly I dislike pairing for pairing's sake, and the excess of homo pairings. I get that their are a lot of canon female characters, but you don't get new ponies that way and three pairs that just happen to be the elements of harmony is just ridiculous. That's not to say there aren't pairings that I like, say SoaringxDash (admittedly TwixLuna can be cute even if it seems a little weird).
I honestly don't see the point. I mean, I like SpikexRarity, but that's kinda a show-produced couple. Any other made-up couple seems extremely OOC or otherwise lesbian (not that I have a problem with that or anything...but do u really think most couples in the FiM world are lesbian??)
I dont mind the existence of shipping but there are 2 problems i have with MLP shipping
1. it is usually mane 6 with another mane 6, which i simply do not see. Primarily i do not see a sexual love relationship developing so its almost as if they do not stay true to the characters. Also I dont see any of the mane six as being a lesbian (well maybe rainbow dash and possibly fluttershy... but its borderline at best)
2. as most of the characters are female, nearly every shipping is a lesbian relationship. Not that i necessarily have a problem with lesbians(no opinion), but it seems extremely unlikely for any society of any imaginary or real species to consist of mostly gay or lesbian relationships.
Also with the background characters shipping (or any fan thing) tends to have a different view of the character's personality than mine. Although i cannot possibly not like something for this because it is almost unavoidable
So if it is realistic im perfectly fine with it. Although even if it is sort of unrealistic, i can tolerate it
Yeah, that's always the impression I got. It's not as if I don't find it cute-ish, though. I just can't ship it. Mainly because I find it difficult to ship ANY same-sex pairing, unless it's established as canon.
Neutral to be honest. I mean I enjoy pairings that aren't even real like Flutterdash, Applepie, and Rartwi. But when it comes to people going on about how like Rarity and Spike are canon or about FlutterMac, I get annoyed since I never see anything canon about either of those pairings.
