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 ab

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.

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

What about brones that are intelegnent and are no differnt than anyone else but also like r34 ponies ?
#42 - fluttershyiswin (03/10/2012) [-]
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.
#39 - autotechawesome (03/09/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #53 to #39 - devourhim (09/15/2013) [-]
Some people will never understand.

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 **** 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!

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.
User avatar #3 to #1 - sporkbacon (03/09/2012) [-]
It's the fault of bronies that think their content is funny that constantly upload **** . Theyre the people im talking about. There's nothing anyone can do to stop it. But im not taking responsibility for things i didnt do. After all its funnyjunk, not ponyjunk.

Plus ponie, personally, make me happy, because i can get away from all the hate and teror in real life, and when i see that my form of happiness is getting trolled, makes me angry.
User avatar #4 to #3 - gottdammit (03/09/2012) [-]
And that is all OK, I understand you, but couldn't you be happy and positive and tolerating somewhere else. I mean, aren't there any other sites where Bronies can meet up?
User avatar #7 to #4 - sporkbacon (03/09/2012) [-]
I'm not to deep in the community, and I'm somewhat thankful for that. FJ is where I first saw the phenomenon happen, so that's why I post here.

I'm sorry for my posts that were unfunny. I can't take responsibility for my fellow "bronies" that seem to think this website is 80% ponies and 20% funny. It's impossible.
User avatar #12 to #7 - gottdammit (03/09/2012) [-]
I agree with you on that much. Bronies are a large community, so people should learn that if one Brony is a... let's call it "fag"... doesn't mean all of them are. But people are quick to judge, especially on sites where a majority of people view pony posts as a nuisance.
User avatar #15 to #12 - sporkbacon (03/09/2012) [-]
Not be be an asshat or anything, but the whole thing about being a brony is "Love" and "tolerance" which the haters completely ignore and just assume one represents the entire community.

User avatar #18 to #15 - gottdammit (03/09/2012) [-]
Well, in a short conclusion... just don't feed the trolls.
User avatar #24 to #18 - sporkbacon (03/09/2012) [-]
Indeed.
Thanks for being a neutral by the way.

User avatar #6 to #4 - haker (03/09/2012) [-]
I dont see the problem of you having to see a few pony posts. Just skip them 90% of them have PONY in the title.
User avatar #13 to #6 - sporkbacon (03/09/2012) [-]
No kidding. I don't understand why people feel it's necessary when the topic is clearly something they don't like and have to troll it because they don't agree with it. There's a skip button for a reason.
#17 to #13 - haker (03/09/2012) [-]
Oh and people apparently hate us so much that they have started a group to get us removed from the internet. WHAT THE HELL DID WE DO TO EARN EVERYONES HATE? I mean if you hate us that much that you think we all need to die, what do you think of the child pornographers and rapists? Oh you say that your time is better spent trying to remove a community that is basically a group of all nice people rather then the rapists and peophiles ...
User avatar #21 to #17 - sporkbacon (03/09/2012) [-]
Exactly. In their mindset apparently MLP is more of a threat than things that actually freaking matter. People just need to leave bronies alone for a while.
User avatar #23 to #21 - haker (03/09/2012) [-]
Its not even that, its that to a lot of people we have become a "danger to the internet" when for all intents and purposes we are making the internet less dark and an overall better place.
R34 was around before ponies but people seem to believe were all a bunch of bestaility loving faggots who sit around and play with dolls all day.
User avatar #25 to #23 - sporkbacon (03/09/2012) [-]
The internet has been in danger since it began. As soon as word got around about disturbing things, gory things, or whatever else, the internet was corrupted beyond its intended purpose.

I think of the internet as a learning tool, however, you may not want to learn what it has to offer.
User avatar #27 to #25 - haker (03/09/2012) [-]
As long as there is freedom on the internet there will be sick ***** like that, people just need to realize that those people are in every group. We cant do anything about it and neither can they. I just say that Kony, the Ugandan hero should give them what they want and add a filter when he can. The brony community is full of nice and compassionate people and a few people, who arent even really affiliated with us, are the ones the public sees.
User avatar #30 to #27 - sporkbacon (03/09/2012) [-]
But until that glorious day happens...we're stuck with trolls and have to deal with it. But you know, pony posts are still going to be trolled for the sake of being trolled.
User avatar #33 to #30 - haker (03/09/2012) [-]
yea but honestly i dont mind those trolls at all, theyre just trying to be funny. Its the people that would do they stuff like they did to that girl, that bothers me, it makes me angry. And then they say stuff like thank god another one down, that ***** not funny, that positively ENRAGES me. People claim were so bad, but were not the ones that say **** like that. I cant see how a human being could be so heartless and cruel.
User avatar #35 to #33 - sporkbacon (03/09/2012) [-]
Exactly. Watching a cartoon is worse than making someone kill themself? That's unreal.
I've lost a lot of respect for humanity. MLP is what keeps it from going to zero. It is basically a distraction I use to escape all the depressing news about whatever.
Trolls can try to make us mad, but that's what they do, hit them with calm logic and they shut down.
And this freaking Kony thing is pissing me off a bit too. Why is it suddenly so bad that child soldiers are being used. Its been going on for years. Just now we care. What the **** ?
User avatar #36 to #35 - haker (03/09/2012) [-]
Its cause they just really started showing it in public light, and people dont want to seem like assholes.
#50 - John Cena (03/10/2012) [-]
No, we're bronies. United we stand, divided we fall.
#52 to #50 - John Cena (04/03/2012) [-]
Exactly. Bronies are bronies I'm not one for R34 of ponies but I'll still talk to and shake the hand of one who enjoys it. Because at the end of the day, we're all just Bronies who like the show.
#57 - John Cena (03/03/2015) [-]
maybe its because it is a show made for little ******* girls. People would get equally as much **** if they created some devoted fandom to strawberry shortcake, Its just creepy and theres no way to frame it any other way. Id be completely put off by someone who was nuts over Caillou. The only cool show aimed at really young kids is wonder pets, those pets are dope as ****
#52 - John Cena (10/23/2012) [-]
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 **** yourselves in advance.Cheers.

Girls, maybe Bronettes?
User avatar #48 to #46 - sporkbacon (03/10/2012) [-]
The female term is "pegasister" but Brony is unisex.
#44 - idontalwaysroll (03/10/2012) [-]
Fake because a brony is a boy who loves it, you said a girl killed herself because of anti-bronies.
#45 to #44 - sporkbacon (03/10/2012) [-]
Brony is a unisex term, sir.

User avatar #47 to #45 - zarallyn (03/10/2012) [-]
Well, Females who watch and enjoy My Little Pony are called Pegasisters
User avatar #49 to #47 - sporkbacon (03/10/2012) [-]
I'm aware...But Brony has always been unisex. I guess girls needed equality by making up a different term for themselves. The reason I think Brony is better is that its Bro + Pony. As opposed to Pegasus + sister, implying that they're only pegasi.
#51 to #49 - idontalwaysroll (03/13/2012) [-]
And besides, how do we know if the story is true? What if the person just made it all up and then never went on the face of the world wide web again?
#56 to #51 - chuayane (02/06/2014) [-]
we could start with the fact that originally, there was only bronies...the term "pegasister" didn't start to exist until quite a while later..."pegasister" was also known to have been caused by ppl beliving brony was a mix of bro+pony...

We call the ones that give us a bad name "pony fags"
Why change out name when they can have a more degrading name?
User avatar #11 to #8 - sporkbacon (03/09/2012) [-]
But not a lot of people know "Ponyfag" as a term. People just assume were all the same, which is why I wanted a new name to call people against the "bad" half of being a brony.
User avatar #19 to #11 - stealthfoxbrony (03/09/2012) [-]
Then call the bad half pony fags, there is no way in hell that anybody is ever going to change the name. Besides, bronies have more of a good name to neutrals and people who don't even know about this whole pony thing, than the bad name we could ever have with haters, "the squeaky wheel gets the grease" are you going to give the haters grease?
User avatar #22 to #19 - sporkbacon (03/09/2012) [-]
I guess. But all the haters think of all bronies are ponyfags. We're freaking not. One bad person can spoil the whole community.

#26 to #22 - stealthfoxbrony (03/09/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #28 to #26 - sporkbacon (03/09/2012) [-]
Just reading what some people think about us is disturbing. I'm not taking it to heart or anything, but it almost made me want to quit being associated with the show altogether.

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.
User avatar #14 to #10 - haker (03/09/2012) [-]
Thats fine, but what annoys me is the sheer amount of people that bitch cause they are slightly inconvined by having to skip a pony post. I mean all you have to do is click the right arrow on the keyboard. And then they go into ponytime and bitch about it constantly. If youre around the 20-30 thumb range where most pony posts end up just call it a day.
User avatar #16 to #14 - sporkbacon (03/09/2012) [-]
But people aren't satisfied with just skipping, they have to troll the living **** out of everything because it boosts their self-esteem. I can handle trolling for the most part, because I have something trolls don't have. ******* logic.
#20 to #16 - haker (03/09/2012) [-]
IKR people keep complaining about ponies and then they go into ponytime to complain about ponies.
