do all the characters on the hated characters list have anti stan's tags?
Not all of them. Even so, those characters still count because their fans may receive more hate beyond Tumblr.
For example, there's only one post in the "anti Hordak stans" tag on this site, but Twitter is a different beast altogether.
Hordak fans have been treated like crap by the Twitter!Hordak-antis (a significant chunk of the SPoP fandom) for simply liking him, and called "colonizer apologists." Therefore, he meets the criteria for the list.
So I read your She-Ra rant: do you hate the show? Like, could you recommend it?
To be honest, Anon, I wrestled with these feelings a lot of the...year, I guess. I have a hard time recommending media that ended on a sour note for me personally. However, I also can’t deny that I had a lot of fun watching the series. Even the stuff I didn’t like had some nice moments in it. But I also can’t say that the ending doesn’t retroactively ruin some moments and scenes for me since I know where the roads lead.
Ultimately, I think I’m pretty neutral on Netflix’s She-Ra. If someone asked me if they should, I’d probably just tell ‘em it’s okay. If I were to give She-Ra a grade, it’d probably be a C-.
It had a shaky start, but when it got going, it took off like a rocket...and then promptly tripped, hit the ground hard, and limped across the finish line. Not graceful, but there’s some enjoyment to be had. I’d even say it’s mostly okay to let a kid watch-just maybe with some supervision.

Oh hey new He-Man cartoon wonder what people are saying about it online I-
You know, the funny thing is these are the same people who brought up the many, clunky issues with netflix She Ra but somehow I'm not surprised that they've turned their attention to Smith's He-Man and are looking for the most minor/subjective stuff to bitch about, imo.
Yes, would-be artists and grifters (coughclownfishcough), I am sure that Smith's He-Man will totally be another Nu-Ra. Because Teela looks the part of the woman warrior and has hair you subjectively don't like. Genius debating and reasoning, that.
Here, for context, is what they are complaining about:
Now, do I think the designs are perfect? Eh. I'll admit old Orcko here isn't quite how I'd do him myself but the fact that he's voiced by Griffin Newman tells me he'll be the same 'well meaning comic relief' he was in the 83 show.
"Well Teela's hair is too long it will get in the way!"
... Really, in a science fantasy series that's where you apply your dumb arbitrary sense of realism. With the hair. Okay, my peoples, whatever gets that Youtube clickbait I suppose.
I'll admit, for me at least Adam here looks a bit TOO Beshonen/Bishy looking for my personal tastes but I ain't in charge of the show and it's a minor issue I have (mostly in the face). Overall the artstyle/this screenshot in particular looks great composition wise. Unlike Nu-Ra this show has... shading! And design details to the chars outfits! And shading! Goddamn have I missed cartoons that have shading.
The point is, as much as I might agree with the broad strokes of these people with, say, Nu-She Ra being a flawed as hell (and in my personal opinion overpraised to heck and back) at the same time their the same type of complainers who will look to for anything to complain about because HOW DARE the show runners not read their minds and make a show that matches their subjective tastes.
Like, even if Teela had long feminine hair/practical hair do you guys really think that, say, ZanyCartoonist wouldn't look for something else to bitch about?
People like these might be right about some things some of the time but their also the type of people who will never be happy about something a person does creatively. They will ALWAYS find something to complain about and I'm done giving folks like them the time of day when it comes to their thoughts on things, criticism wise. Granted, I'm biased as hell since I've had similar 'miss the point of what I'm going for' "criticism" leveled at my own stuff.
"Bob why does your Power Ranger style team not have helmet? All Ranger/sentai teams need helmets! And giant robots!"
"Because I figured Flash style masks were relatively more practical in a battle against minions and monsters and I don't really care about the giant robot part of PR/super sentai? Do you have any comments on the writing or the characterization or-"
"And why are three/fifths of the team women? They should be male-"
"Because I wanted one team where the women outnumbered the men and-"
You get the idea, I hope.
Bringing this back to He-Man, am I big Kevin Smith fan? Not really, but this might be the first project of his I actually sit down, watch, and enjoy, I'll put it that way.
