Thoughts on bronies (Check Description)

My mind feels as though it's been shattered. I don't know what to think anymore. I've seen a lot of hateful comments about us, and I've tolerated it for a time. But I don't understand. Fellow Bronies, we need to rename ourselves to something else to differentiate from the rule 34 loving, butthurt, intolerant, "bronies" that give at least some of us a bad name. I like MLP. It's a good show and I enjoy it. However, there are some people who take it to far. I've read too much on the seething hate of a majority of us. People are so intolerant of things that they don't look at the facts. The point is, how are people so intolerant of something colorful and friendly just because people think it's gay? I just don't know anymore. I feel like taking off my label of "Brony" and just say I like the show itself, and not say anything about the rest of the community has to offer. The music people make is awesome, the non-rule 34 art is amazing, the stories I've read are fun to read. I would say that I enjoy the fandom, but some of it makes me sick. So, I propose either calling like-minded individuals like me, something completely different, or labeling the others, as they are commonly called "Ponyfags" something else. I can see where the haters are coming from, and I accept other people's opinions, but there's a line. I saw a post earlier that some girl killed herself because she was getting harassed by anti-bronies. What the fuck? I know some bronies are in the wrong, but seriously, making someone kill themselves over a show? I bet that they don't feel any guilt whatsoever. The sad thing is, on that same post, one of the comments was "One finally committed suicide? Only half of funnyjunk to go." What the fuck man... Just because someone likes a show, gets bullied and suicides you think its some great glory because there is one less? That's pretty fucked up in my book. The internet is a scary place and for the first time in my life, I'm scared of it. People liking that people are committing suicide over a fucking cartoon. Really? It's a fucked up world, and I'm tired of it. All the Bronies I've met on FJ have been Kind, respectful, awesome, and friendly. Every post about ponies has some self-labeled brony that doesn't speak for the rest of us, necessarily, that forces it on people. I'll agree that posting ponies where they don't belong is wrong. But, in my personal opinion, if it fits, use it. TL;DR, I know, but I just wanted to say something.

If being friendly is wrong, I've lost respect for humanity.

Fake because a brony is a boy who loves it, you said a girl killed herself because of anti-bronies.

Brony is a unisex term, sir.

What about brones that are intelegnent and are no differnt than anyone else but also like r34 ponies ?

No, we're bronies. United we stand, divided we fall.

I've never like rule 34 and in the case of ponies really wish it never existed but that does not mean I won't consider someone who does masturbate to rule 34 a brony. The haters will always think the worst of us you can't change that fact, however; you can be a bigger man (or woman) than the haters by including everyone who likes the show not just the people you deem worthy of your approval as part of your community.

Answer me this: People on funnyjunk dislike the people on 9GAG and visa-versa, but I don't hear any death threats from either side, so why do is it any different for a brony?

It should have never gotten to this point, death threats are wrong, the people who wish for the death of another person, who has done nothing wrong, is a sick human being. From what I've read, this girl did nothing wrong, and just because she was a brony, doesn't mean she deserves to die. I can tolerate the trolls and what not, but to fathom someone wanting the death of another, just cause they like something you don't? It's human nature, to be different.

We live in a harsh world, one would think people would have gotten that by now.

But apparently not.

This behaviour is not limited to the Brony community if you happen to think that, but you don't really care since it's not something that happened to a fellow "brony".

If something isn't "normal" it is usually something wrong and frowned upon. Besides, a lot of people in this world needs others to step on to feel better about themselves.

It doesn't matter whatever message the Brony community is about, it's something deviant and therefore people will spit on it and hate it.

Now I sincerely hope this shit wasn't a newsflash to you, seeing as it should be clear as water.

Now I hope you gentlemen have a fine weekend. Ta-ta!

We call the ones that give us a bad name "pony fags"
Why change out name when they can have a more degrading name?

Again, that's the haters. If i gave a damn about what the haters thought of me, I would have stopped being a brony by now. I go by what people who have some form of positive intellect have to say, bronies and the tolerating neutrals.

Seriously, just ignore the haters, they will think we are "pony fags" no matter what we do, even if the real "pony fags" stopped spamming unfunny images.

I feel the same way .... i mean its another human being that they tortured till she couldnt take it.  Those posts have renewed my faith that 90% of people are intolorent assholes.  I think the brony community is great, not everyones a douchebag (which is a welcome change on the internet) but people have so much hate.  I just dont get it.  I honestly dont think they would get this mad if people went and posted gay porn all over the site.  What did we do to deserve this hate, and why cant people see that what they do has an impact.  What happened to basic human emotions like kindness and compassion?  This firmly places the belief that humans are now worse then animals in every aspect.  Nothing with a soul could torture somone till they ended their life and then not feel remorse.  As I have said everyone that insulted her on her wall deserves Assisted Suicide charges or at the very least criminal harassment.

Agreed. Like I said, the internet scares me. I don't understand why people that like a kid's show are such easy targets. Sure, I can take "you're gay watching a show about ponies". Which I respond with, "That's your opinion, go away." and moving on with my life.

Look, man, I don't think you guys are gay, it's just that you are swarming this site with "love" and "tolerance" while all other people come here for the funny. I'm not a hater, just a regular neutral who is sick of spammed pony-posts as soon as he gets too far from the frontpage.

I don't actually have anything against most bronies or the show for that matter(Don't personally like it,but whatever floats your boat I guess.),what I do hate is the ones that don't keep to mlp.I mean,if for example,I had a commission of lots and lots of ponies getting murdered by every weapon known to man and then put it on the net,would bronies be upset?Of course you would,and I can see why,but do you really think that if you go about "ponyfing" everything that isn't mlp that people will be fine with it?You might be,but there's more people on Earth that just people that like mlp you know.I would ignore the "humanized" ponies,but really?Stuff that doesn't have anything to do with ponies?You must think that if it doesn't have ponies in it then your gonna cram them in till it's bursting with them,if you didn't then you would keep to your universe and let us keep to ours.But did you?No.You really didn't.Countless games,movies,TV shows,books,comics,you name it that have NOTHING to do with mlp have been ponified.Since I challenged the ponifiying of everything,you guys are gonna just nuke this comment into non-existance,and when you do,it just proves that you really don't "love or tolerate" anything not pony,if you did,then the ponified stuff wouldn't exist,and I wouldn't be saying this.Since you won't tolerate my opinion,you can all go fuck yourselves in advance.Cheers.
