Eh, I used to be completely against them, but think about it this way. There's a good amount of teenage fans, and some are at that "age of sexual exploration." Some horny teenagers might start fapping to pictures of old ladies, some might start fapping to teenage mutant ninja turtles, some might start fapping to Pokemon, and of course, some might start fapping to ponies. The teenage mind is a strange one.
Also, I wouldn't call a clopper a rabid really. I'd call a rabid the kind of brony who goes on anal crusades bashing people with opinions that differ from theirs, and go on about mlp being "TEH BEST SHO EVUR" and that you should die if you don't like it.
