What is your opinion on "Bronies"? Some may accept the idea, some may think it's just plain weird, others may be a "Brony" themselves.. Voice your opinion here!!

 

Personally I think it's kind of odd for men of any age to like my little pony, especially ones who are 30+.. I guess that I like weird things too so I can't complain too much. rolleyes.gif

 

Edit: Did not intend to offend anyone, I made this thread out of curiosity. I think it's absolutely fine for ANYONE to like the show.

I'm not at all fond of the accounts I've heard (from reputable industry sources) of Bronies flooding events and conventions meant for the show's target demographic (girls age 6-12) and snapping up the goodies and promotional items intended for the kiddies. Using your greater height and weight to muscle in ahead of little kids and take the stuff those kids would have loved to get is just...

 

Yeah, not cool IMO.

I agree! I feel bad for the little girls who the show is actually targeted for... Not cool at all..

They're a bunch of socially awkard guys who've found something to not argue over, let them be really. Otherwise for the rest of you.

The Bronies started out as a joke from 4chan's /b/ which is literally hitler. Otherwise I wouldn't pay too much attention to them, ~Removed~ otherwise they're okay

I dislike bronies mainly because of how annoying they get anywhere you go on the internet. I don't like their idea of obsessing over a show for 6 year old girls, but it isn't that important.

~Removed~ Now that's messed up.. I would rather not have to see the Bronies on the Internet but I agree, people can do as they please and I won't scold them.

I think it's pretty strange. The only bit I don't like is all the people threatening to rape the creators of the show which is a no-no, and the people who talk about it 24/7. And it also personally bothers me because I've come across several pedophiles that are bronies (NOT SAYING ALL PEOPLE WHO LIKE MLP ARE PEDOPHILES DON'T ATTACK ME). People will like what they like, just don't be an censorkip.gif*** about it.

Yep. There's even a term for it within the fandom, which I won't repeat. xd.png

I don't really care that they like the show because people can like whatever they want and it IS actually a pretty good show and I like it too, but... Well, there's a LOT of them that are all manner and variety of terrible people and I don't exactly like associating with them. :V

Perfectly stated. But most places you go on the internet are going to be full of Bronies who will spam the place with pictures and their fandom. If they would keep it to them selves or on the sites for that I would be fine but I personally hate them because of how annoying a lot of them get about it.

Personally, I didn't mind them at first- its their choice what they like.

But now, it's just annoying. I messages someone on deviantART, and I got a nasty response because I wasn't a brony.

Star Trek fandom used to have the same problem, back when it was brand spankin' new and began to hold conventions. The fan-kiddies who ran around in badly homemade Starfleet uniforms with pasted-on Vulcan ears squealing "SPOCKSPOCKSPOCK!" at the slightest provocation...

 

Every fandom has its members that the rest of the fandom wishes would be a bit more quiet about it, I think. The Bronies are probably not that different.

That is what I am talking about. When the bronies get annoying like that it makes you hate them all.

No kidding! I miss being able to use 4chan without obnoxious bronies everywhere, real or not.

I know! Yes, we get it, you like MLP. Good for you, we don't care, AT ALL. Keep it to yourself! It's fine every once in a while, but now, you're only spawning hate!

...For the longest time, I've always thought that the term 'brony' was a general thing to call everyone who was a major fangirl/boy of MLP. I guess not.

 

I've never encountered a brony in RL, but I think it's fine for guys to like MLP as long as they (or other people) don't try to push their love of MLP in my face.

I agree. Why do Bronies judge and attack people who aren't like them? Isn't that exactly what they don't want done to them? I'm sick of being attacked by them just because of one little thing. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and shouldn't be bashed because of it.

Unfortunately, they don't just push it into your face. They shove it.

It's especially awful when you consider the message of the show they claim to idolize...

Hmm and what's that? Personally I've never watched the show so I would like to know.

It's about the value of cooperation and the transformative power of friendship, at least as I understand it. I've seen all of half an episode, so I could be wrong. xd.png

Friendship is magic. Kindness and tolerance is important.

Wow, so they idolize a show about kindness and friendship and they don't bother to show it? Fantastic... huh.gif

I don't really care about all the up-in-your face stuff.

But I do find it weird that anyone over 12 (of either gender) would watch it. *Has two younger sisters*

 

I find the whole fandom generally disturbing. (Well, on the internet)
