this post was originally from my tumblr blog

I ain't gonna be talking about "Oh, bronies are such <insert an adjective that goes with a noun here>" NO, because that's just an irrational approach.


I was cleaning the bathroom while I was thinking about to make a text post about the matter. Honestly, I'm afraid to make a post about it because of some reason, I will be attacked/hated about it even though I would engage to the matter in the most formal way. </p>

I'm not pointing to anyone recently, actually, while I just got on my laptop, I didn't expect that there is/are MLP fan/s would message me, and they might think I was talking about them, which made me sort of hold back to make this post for a while. But I'm doing it anyways. I'm prepared for the hate I will get after this.

FIRST: The Reputation


Whenever someone said something about hating bronies because of one or a couple of bronies did something that wasn't nice, some other bronies would say "Not all Bronies are like that!". ITS TRUE, not all bronies are like that, or any other fandom. And because of that negative act of a member, it cripples the reputation of the fandom, and the fact that people will most likely notice the wrong than the right, yea, it will totally make a bad name. This doesn't just apply in one fandom, it applies to every fandom.

You know, I've been trying not to lower my reputation for the past 10 years back in high school and elementary because if I did something wrong, it will not just make a bad name for myself, but also my mother who is the Ass't Prinicipal of the High School department.


SECOND: The Attackers


There's a lot of issues about Bronies who attack (not physically) people that says the show sucks, or girly, etc. I understand how it feels when something I loved very much is insulted, and wow, I wanted to punch the fuck out of the person who said it.


Going back to the fandom, for a group that is a fan of a show that teaches love and care, they put so much hate when trying to defend it. No wonder people dislike the fandom, I also understand that the show have helped a lot of people who was going through depression and tough times that's why they get attached to the show, but please, try not to tell someone to kill themselves because they dislike it, if they did kill themselves, now how would they understand what you were going through or how great the cartoon is?


I had an experience back then, I insulted a game character which ended up that my high school crush didn't talk to me for 3 months, and I'm making sure that it would be the first and last time I would make something happen like that. 


THIRD: The Preachers


I'm sorry if the term is sort of big to describe such people. I've heard experiences from people that they are annoyed when a server is filled up with bronies, pony sprays everywhere, pony names everywhere, etc.


And some of them will kindly suggest to watch the show and some would consistently remind to watch it. In my first times playing TF2, there were bronies everywhere, I was curious about what the show was about that I see more guys being fond of them than girls. tbh, if it wasn't for my friend who keeps saying "Watch MLP" I wouldn't understand those bronies up to now.


-----------------------------------


These 3 are the matters that I would mostly encounter and hear from people and are sure about. I didn't post this to give more negative points to the fandom, I posted this so they or some bronies would realize why, and other non-bronies would rethink. Since this text post has been spawned, I assume that I will have a lot of unfollowers and get anon attacked, and if that happens, that just supports the theory much more.


To Bronies who read this, be nicer and more patient towards the haters or if you don't, there's gonna be a lot more hating, I assure you. 


and to non-Bronies, these are people who really loves their stuff, forgive some of them that are too aggressive towards haters, maybe if you just give time to understand.


I could've added more but that would complicate things.


Remember, each people has their own way in understanding, looking,thinking and analyzing things. The same or not. Biased or influenced. Problems can be resolved without violence, and if people listens to reason for the sake of understanding.

Interesting points. I was not aware of some of these problems in ma' fandom. Then again, I think I've done most of this stuff....

Anyway, kudos for putting your opinion out, despite peer review, good sir.

While I am a brony, I have made friends with people who absolutely despise the MLP fandom. It's not that hard guys. You don't have to be ALL PONIES ALL THE TIME. Don't need to tell off the haters for hating, let them be entitled to what they believe. And please for the love of god, DO LOVE AND TOLERATE, DON'T BE A HYPOCRITE. That said, like you say, not all bronies are the same. We don't need to impose stereotypes on anyone.
Now that that is out of my system, I LOVE UR ART! (/^0^)/

I wouldn't care about ponies thing at all, if a group of douchebags wouldn't spam all over my boyfried's forum. This was such a lack of any basic respect. One of them called me a bitch when I didn't use any disrespectful word.

Personally I think that women/girls liking ponies are ok but many boys or adult men liking this are just ridiculous and they have themselves some personality traits that I find at least funny or irritating. And they have this kind of lack of respect to everyone who disagree with them and I'm saying that from my own experience. I want EVERYONE TO LOVE CATS! CATS ARE GREAT! LOOK AT MY AVATAR! WATCH CATS! CTAS CATS CATS!!!!!!! :p SPAM THE WORLD WITH CATS!!!!

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up. Some bronys are vicious... but most aren't, and don't get why they have a bad name.

I'm a brony, and I really like mlp, but I'm not just talking about mlp or insulting the people who doesn't like it. The only thing I say when someone says MLP sucks is 'but have you ever watched it?' and if they say no, then I tell them they shouldn't say that something is rubbish if they haven't watched it, because I have a friend who thought it was stupid, and I told him to say the same after watching some episodes, and now he LOVES it...
But if they have watched it and disliked it, I respect their opinion, but they should respect mine.
And I've seen some discussions between bronies and non-bronies and sometimes I'd like to say to the bronies 'stop being like that, because that's why people 'hates' mlp, because of the fans. And I think everything is like that when something gets famous, some fans appears and insult the rest and then the show is hated by everyone, so it's like both parts are responsible, fans shouldn't be that agressive and the rest should ignore when they get that way, but we can't change their mind, someones just like hating :|

Hi, I'm a Brony Hater, but I wouldn't want to discuss it with someone. We all like different things and have different opinions.
I accept everyone no matter what he/she likes.^^
