I agree with you 100%. 
Although I'm rarely ever faced with obsessively fat people or nudes, I'm constantly surrounded with ponies and furries.
I like furries to an extent. The ones that look cute, usually only ones on IMVU. Ponies are just so.... not unique in any way. 
There was one girl I was talking to and she was mad no one ever read or liked her things. and it was just one thing, pony related material. I asked her if she had any other interest and she said no. That's why she wasn't that popular is because she didn't have wide interest. 
It gets annoying after a while but that's why I fill up my watched groups with anime, traditional, digital, realistic or other interests that I have and shy away from involving anything that will clutter me with ponies and everything else. I must say its been working good.
I have noticed things have really slowed down lately in the amount of material being shared in different groups I'm in. You can never be too sure exactly why, though.

My theory as to why before all of us could draw like crap and still manage to grow an audience in past years (I know I did at least) and now we can technically go pro and catch no attention is all I typed above. People only see those things along with our usual few good artists (the ones everyone watches). This kills opportunities for creative minds out there, going unnoticed because people is not even willing to notice anymore. Well, that's what happens with DeviantArt, I don't mean to say that's the entire world's situation, you know?

Though over YouTube we have a different situation: Let's Players and gaming channels seem to be getting all the attention now, artists such as Rona Project or the Briman are being left behind to watch people play videogames. I don't mean to seem like I'm blaming them for my apparent lack of popularity on YouTube, in fact, I love watching a good and fun let's play occasionally (being Markiplier, Vanossgaming and The Crew my favorites), but the attention for them went actually too far now, honestly.

Well, anyway, people say I am intolerant asshole, but really, I don't mind if you like ponies, fetishist German porn or gory execution videos as long as you don't focus your entire life on it. You can like My Little Pony and I'm cool with you, but if you draw nothing but ponies and watch nothing but pony-related bullshit, then you have a problem, because I will mock you, and you will be offended, and you won't understand that I just mock you because your obsession annoys the living shit out of me. So yeah, there's that.

So, basically, excesses are bad, that's partly the message here. Let's get some more variation and we can get a more active DeviantArt community like the one we used to have. Otherwise, keep uploading naked sluts, ponies, sexed-up furry, ridiculously fat women, Adventure Time fanart (apply here what I said about ponies, that's been ridiculously abundant too), etc. and let this site die by the minute.

I agree with you that people need to expand their artistic interest.
But who are we to tell them what to do and not to do?
I say just let it go and try not to let it bother you that bad. Do like I do and stick yourself in your own little world. :3

That's pretty much what I have been doing up until now. I guess I just felt the urge to make the observation...
