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 **** ? 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 **** 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 ****** 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 ******* cartoon. Really? It's a ****** 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.
