Yeah, it's kind of weird and not really my thing, but if people enjoy it more power to them. People should be able to like whatever they like without scrutiny from others. Besides, I've found myself liking enough weird things that I can't really judge.
I haven't yet met any grown-up men, who would genuinely enjoy this show. However, I have met: 1) Hipsters, who claim to enjoy the show, so that everyone knows, how "open-minded" they are. 2) Hipsters, who claim to enjoy the show "ironically." 3) Hipsters, who try to watch MLP just because all other hipsters do it. 4) Furries, who would watch any cartoon with anthropomorphic animals in it. 5) Trolls, who post MLP-themed pictures all over the place and then tell everyone else to "love and tolerate" them. 6) "Businessmen", who don't watch the show, but keep creating and selling overpriced fanart to gain popularity and profit. So yeah...
Anyway, Rule 34 applies to, well, everything. My Little Pony just happened to gain a male fanbase thanks to 4chan, which probably makes not-so-pony everyday people think it must be for their sexual attraction to cartoon horses. At least the show, while definitely made for girls, still has this "for everyone" Disney-like appeal about it.
Some simple kids cartoon that some adults ended up liking and they decided to make one big club out of it, with the men being "bronies" and I guess the women are "pegasisters." Or something. I don't know. Tried the show myself, hated every second of it, so I don't see the appeal that these people appear to see.
I don't see how them being gay would really affect their enjoyment of the show. Gay or straight, man or woman, I find it equally disturbing that any adult practically worships cartoon horse ass with such fervor as some of these people do.
