So tonight I was watching FOX's Sunday night animation line-up as I've done for years and it finally gets to Family Guy. After the usual tearing into Meg by all of the other characters, I got to wondering--why the hell does everyone hate Meg anyway?

I never really was a fan of the show, so I've just accepted this as one of the many branches of the show that just never needed explaining--like Stewie being understood about half of the time and has intentions of murdering Lois (which appear to have ebbed), Brian's ability to talk, or the flashes of randomness that take up about a third of the show created out of suggestions made by the characters ("This is kinda like the time I licked Saddam's asshole..." *Cue the 5-minute long sketch of Peter licking Saddam's asshole then get back into the senseless plot.*)

All right, so why is Meg just so hated? Am I missing something? I just don't understand why she's everyone's whipping boy when Chris is right there.

Anyone else care to explain the other things that I listed?

Because Chris is voiced by Seth Green, and Seth Green kicks ass.

But seriously, I think it's just because it's funny. I mean, look at the rest of the show. Does ANY of it make sense?

Teehee...I guess its like FX said...its just one of those things that most people find funny so they just randomly do it...

That and I always thought it was their way of poking fun at teenage girls. Or the whole teenage thing anyway. You know, the whole "I gotta be cool! No one understands me!" bit. :p

It's really inexplicible why they hate meg so much, but it's definitely something funny. Maybe it's because she's the only one with glasses and she's the dorky 'invisible' kid. I'm not sure, it's humerous though.

Stewie is really only ever understood by Brian it seems, everyone else ignores what he's saying like meg. And stewie hates his mother because she doesn't understand him or listen to him.

Brian can talk because it adds a bit of humour. An alcoholic dog that is more intelligent than everyone except maybe the baby.

The flashes of randomness are what the show's about. Showing the humerous accounts of one of the characters actually done, no matter how outrageous they are. It's basically TV for ADD and ADHD children...like me!

I try not to think about half the stupid things they do in the show, if there’s something to poke fun at then they will poke fun at it, that’s why the show is so amusing and most of the things they do deserve to be poked fun at. From the few episodes I’ve seen of Family Guy Meg does cop a lot of it.

Meg was the voice of Jackie from that 70s show, and everybody loved Jackie, so everybody hates Meg for Contrast.

Actually... Meg's just like any other rebelious kid. Just like in Rosanne. I need to stop watching Nick at Nite.

Yeah, come to think of it, she is somewhat obnoxious on that front. I guess I don't watch enough to notice. Meh.

The whole angsty teenage girl is pretty annoying.
