thats the other thing ive noticed...MLP, the show that appeals to grown people.
We all seem to share an addiction to cute, right so thats one reason.
I am taking a stab in the dark here but i assume a lot of MLP and furry fans alike enjoy watching childrens movies no? and no im not just refering to old Disney stuff, i'm talking about classic types like 'Despicable Me'.
I noticed they carry the same kind of humor, references and entertainment value. Relating this concept to a completely different movie/production helps put it into prospective. I'd say MOST people would have no issues watching Disney's 'Cars'. no some might not drool over it, but ive yet to meet someone who would not sit down and watch it.
It's just yet another thing that links the two fandoms.
Currently i am planning a furry/bronie meet for my state. I think the plan is flawless because irrational haters from each side will simply not attend, the remainder will be many like-minded people and a good night out
