Even though, you know, the farther I dig into this fandom, the more I find that the war between the more extreme bronies and between people who hate them/the show is turning out exactly like Twilight.
For a while you roll along with the people who dislike it. But then it's the same thing. Over. And over. And over and over and over and over and they're actually making the unable-to-take-opinions-fans good and OH GOD WE GET IT. SPARKLY VAMPIRES ARE A NO NO. BELLA SUCKS. ALUCARD IS A BETTER VAMPIRE. THE FANS ARE JUST AWFUL. CHRIST'S SAKE, CHANGE THE CHANNEL ALREADY.
But no. This must be for both sides even if I'm seeing less of the brony side people dislike every day that passes.
Fans : ...okay, you know the deal by now. You know what, if you want to think it's the best thing ever, fine. If you want to ship, clop, all of this, fine. Do whatever you want; the thing is to not be obxnoious and ACTUALLY in your face about it (just so you know, in your face isn't just spreading it in their own way -ie making fanart, fanfiction, etc- shoving it in your face is...actually fucking shoving it in your face, trying to force people to like it). Do whatever the fuck you want, just no need to be a douche towards other about it.
Anti fans: Holy shit on a brick, pull your panties out of your ass, adjust them properly, and go to a therapist. Go. Now. Bronies started a war on the internet? Going after people just because they like a fucking show? Wishing people would die for just liking something you don't? Having a bitch fit over fans liking things you just happen to not? Standing up for something, such as furries and saying they're not all perverts and animal-fuckers like people assume they are, and then going on to say that bronies are all pedophiles? Darling. Hypocrisy. You're doing it perfectly.
Just, for both: Calm the fuck down. No one wants to wage a fucking war. No one is out against you. It's just a fandom. It's just a show. Stop lumping everyone into one pile. Asshats.
Place your genitalia back into your pants and just get on with your life.
I never saw a MLP fan complain. I remember some guy asked "why does everyone hate bronies” and everyone started bashing him because of it. But then again it was Youtube and Youtube is full with stupid people.
FINALLY. This whole mess is just really messed up to the point were I don't even care anymore. Like I don't like MLP, but I don't go around bashing people and telling them "OMG YOU NEED TU DIE!!11!!!!111" at first I was bothered by the fact that grown men like a pink, rainbow pony kids show, but now I don't even care anymore.
THIS, so much. I have always loved My Little Pony and when it came to G4, I was pretty much like: 'Cool, let's see what they've done in this series'. So I got into the show. Like I said on another stamp, I don't consider myself as a Brony/Pegasister, just someone who has loved the show since I was a toddler. I really don't understand why, on both sides, people have to care if someone likes it or not.
So that person likes MLP? Good for them, it doesn't really affect your life at all. So that person doesn't like MLP? Good for them, it doesn't really affect your life at all.
Ugh, this. THIS SO MUCH. I've been wanting to see a stamp like this.
If either side, both fans and haters, would sit down for awhile and think about what they're going to say before they obsessively rant about it, they'd realize how stupid it is to cause so much drama over a kid-friendly show that's magical talking rainbow colored ponies.
No, the original bronies really DID start this "war".
-Firstly, by acting all high and mighty for watching a show not meant for them in the first place, attracting trolls.
-Secondly, by deliberately annoying people by posting ponies all over 4chan - leading to the creation of a pony 4chan board, the first thing bronies achieved - their own board!
-Thirdly, by STILL posting ponies on the non-pony 4chan boards, thus making people more annoyed, resulting in anti-bronies.
-So what happened after? They finally left 4chan and instantly started invading every popular website known to man, shoving their show into everyone's lives, repeatedly, and turning a liking for a show into a severely unhealthy obsession - one that involved turning every minor thing into an embarrassing debacle, like a certain character's voice being changed, and brutally attacking other cartoons - even the original MLP.
-They then took their obsession for the show to INSANE levels. Like, by creating a brony radio station, writing extremely long fanfiction, cultivating an entire side of the fandom based around pornographic content (which is now such an enormously prominent side that cloppers are now almost ACCEPTED, rather than seen as creeps) ponifying absolutely everything they can find, making VIDEO GAMES based around this show and entire animated episodes (which infringed copyright infringement massively), and then releasing several arrogant documentaries of their fandom, just because they think that everyone has to love and accept their childishness.
-Finally destroying the entire reputation of the fandom (which was already negative) and original show by losing any remaining sense of sanity, living only for MLP and for nothing else. Bronies ARE to blame here. They dug their own hole. You are not "enjoying a show" anymore. You have created an insane religious fad. YOU CANNOT F*CKING SAY YOU ARE "enjoying a show" when the fandom barely involves watching the show now. The whole thing is completely braindead. An aimless exercise in attention-seeking, dependent immaturity, and anyone who detests bronies and their actions has every right to. Bronies are an infestation of complete jackasses.
Dude calm down, So some of them are terrible. But not all fans are bad. What's wrong with fanfiction, Making video games. It's perfectly fine to create fan works. I know there's a bad side to the fandom, but still it's a minority.
If Hating someone for liking a kid show and harrasing someone is mature. Playing the victim for being a douche is adult. I rather stay a kid. You sound like you're referring to all of them as being bad.
I'm sorry I'm commenting here(I hate bronies, peagsisters, and MlP...) but it's like shut the fuck up people over if it's gay or whatever. The fans are like:
OMGGGGGGGGGG EPICEST AND ADORABLEST THING EVERRR !!!!!!! When the anti-mlp are like: FUCK THIS IT SUCKS! PONIES EVERYWHERE OMG UGHHHHHHHHHHHH IT'S FUCKING ANNOYING LIKE THEIR THEME! IT'S LIKE HELLLLL!!!
That's comments I've seen on Mlp videos.
If you reply and say something like: Why are you here?? You hate the best thing since life/Mlp.
I'm here because shut up if you hate Mlp or go insane and hate Mlp haters. They're annoying as hell. If you block me or something, what the heck? I'm not doing anything bad. Hating something isn't against the rules. Sorry if this is rude/something you would say. I love Derpy at least so be happy I at least like a background character.
