'Brony' Sucks by StampMakerLKJ 'Brony' Sucks by StampMakerLKJ
In my opinion, the show really isn't that bad. I tried watching it for the first time recently and it was fine, kinda cute
and pretty addictive :stare:

However, the term 'Brony' annoys the hell outta me, especially when girls use it on themselves...at least use 'Pegasister' or something, brony is for a guy!

I don't really want any comments about how much you might hate the show, or how you love the term Brony! Because that's kiiiiiinda pointless :XD:

You can express your opinion, though...I'm not rabid and I really don't care if you hate mlp (I'm still not sure if I like it or not!)

I absoloutly hate the term because most of the people I have met that call themselves bronies tend to be in the bad part of the fandom and its very rare for there to be an exception tbh

One rule of the bro code says there's no rule saying a woman can't be a bro.

The fact that we have to add "bro" in front of any typically feminine interest says something about male entitlement. They cannot handle identifying with a fandom that is considered "girly" unless it is tailored to masculinity. I cannot count many self-identified bronies I have seen who insist that MLP is "manly." Because now you have added rape jokes and ruined the fandom for women and girls who enjoy the show?

For similar reasons, I also hate the term "aspie." Nearly every self-identified "high-functioning" person is willing to throw other autistics under the bus to justify their own right to exist. "Asperger's syndrome makes me a talented genius, other forms of autism need to be cured because such people can't even use the toilet." Many nonspeaking AAC users are outraged with that attitude (google "aspie supremacy"). What is even more egregious is the fact that the word "aspie" is now being appropriated by ableist professionals who want to be condescending a-holes. So I no longer identify myself with that garbage term. What is wrong with just being autistic? It brings me solidarity with ALL autistics, not just Asperger's folks.

I agree with everything you have just said. Male entitlement and male ego is a big issue, and why I don't associate with MLP fans.

I was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, but I don't use the term aspie, I just say I'm Autistic or an autie. Also, functioning labels are ableist bullshit.

Apparently the 'brony' fandom is not a nice one to be in, and I will admit to seeing some pretty fucked up MLP related stuff now and again, though I avoid it. I am a MLP fan, but I would never call myself a brony or pegasister. Also, the term pegasister implies to me that you only like the pegasus ponies. Weird I know but I think in weird.

the problem with that is that there is often very little difference between guy bronies and girl bronies, (besides some general tendencys, of course). pegasister is a valid term, but it tends to separate women and men into two different groups, rather than bringing them together into one fandom. I don't think that any other fandom has a separate term for male and female fans.

to me brony or pegasister depends on if you identify as, and are active in the brony community as a whole, or just are a large (female) fan of the show

That would be called opinions. Not everyone is gonna turn into a brony or some other fandom like Trekkies because of course... opinions. They can't force them to change it, it's their decision, not theirs.

Your looking at at pony fan right now but I mainly considered my self a casual brony after some stupidity I've dome last year that I never want to look back in my life which was from a different account name. Oh god...

I actually prefer using Brony and I'm a girl, bros can be girls, ever watched the scene where Robin and Barney hang out in the 1st season of How I Met Your Mother? XD

You can express your fandom the way you'd like to though. Some prefer to just watch the show alone, and others take it a step further, or perhaps too far, as you can see with my avatar XD

It's an adorable show that the fandom totally ruins. It's an excellent children's show, but that being said, it's grossly overrated. The fans are annoying and seem to crave attention. I hate hearing "brony" "pegasister" "brohoof" "everypony" "facehoof" and "anypony" used in everyday language. It doesn't sound cool or creative, it sounds illiterate. Keep in mind, bronies often make fun of one direction fans for calling themselves "directioners" and Dr. Who fans for calling themselves "Whoovians"

I feel like bronies are the worse about this "fandom talk"

I have a cute pinkie pie shirt that I hate wearing in public because people give me this "pony" talk

I disagree. :3
I can't tell you how often I am scolded for calling myself a Brony instead of a 'Pegasister'. I have the right to call myself whatever I want and it really annoys me when someone tries to take that away. I feel like having two different terms divides the fandom into two sections...and I have never liked the Pegasister section. It's tough trying to fit in with Bronies when everyone is telling me I'm just a Pegasister. I'm not. :\

Ha, sorry for little rant on your stamp. :3
