Back in college I did an internship and at lunch some coworkers and I started talking about favorite TV shows. I brought up Buffy and an older lady proceeded to tell me how only goths and people obsessed with "devil imagery" would watch a show that featured vampires and demons. This struck me at the time as an odd and frankly dumb leap to make.
Drawing a connection between being a fan of a show with a strong young female lead and enjoying cartoon ponies has that beat. Congratulations.
