I don't see a problem in buying merchandise for a product you like. I agree that when bronies shout it loud and proud that they're bronies it can seem a little obnoxious, but hate the individual, not the entire group. Besides my signature and avatar I have never brought it up here in OT as I know it annoys people, only others have brought it up when quoting me from time to time.

I watch the show :P I like it but does that mean I'm going to walk down the isle for little girls in toys r us and act like an idiot over it? No :P If I wanted a toy I'd buy it like a human :O seeing as I am one, I don't need to act like a nutcase because of some plastic molded object.

It's something to pass the time, I don't fantasize about it all the time :lol: I will admit the culture scares me, some of the bronies I've met are rather...creepy. Watching any pony thread simulators on youtube will show you that.

That's not to say we are all evil though, there are plenty of us who are normal who simply enjoy the show because the characters are nice in our eyes :)

oh no a group of people are being attention whores? :P I've never seen that anywhere else outside of the brony community :roll: Some people are strange with it, while others are creepy fvcks about it as with anything. LIke Sune said hate the individuals not the group :P Think of how OT would look if we assumed everyone was exactly like one small group on here. I'd cringe then.

Seems like Bronie culture is an "opt-in" sort of thing. They, and their practitioners, don't exactly go door-to-door pestering people. Their threads or websites seem to be pretty clearly marked. Not seeing a lot of point to this thread other than to bash people TC thinks are weird.

Exactly! Imagine if you took the worst OT user, and made him or her our poster child. You'd cringe more That's what OP is kind of doing with bronies here :lol: Just because some people are fvcking weird doesn't mean the whole group is.

Being so general is pointless and kind of ignorant :P

I find that not all bronies are weird like that guy from the third video, one of my coworkers is a broni and he is for the most part normal.

I haven't seen any of the latest episodes, so I'd miss it if she did. Either way though, in a show about happy love and tolerance, it was nice to have a villain who head on attacks the queen, invades the entire area with an army of demons, impersonates and manipulates others to her will, feeds off love to grow more powerful and in the end of it all didn't turn good or show any signs of regret. She owned.

While some bronies take their love for Friendship is Magic to extremes, doesn't change the fact that My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is not only a good show, but also one of the best franchise reboots to date. Considering this is My Little Pony we're talking about, its saying a lot

Every fandom has its bad seeds* and it only stands to reason that a popular franchise will have more idiots making a ruckus than a niche franchise. Give it another year or so and they should quiet down, especially if it turns out the current season is the last one. [spoiler] *If this made you think of Babs Seed/the "One Bad Apple" episode, congratulations, you're a nerd. [/spoiler]

Ignore them? This is why stuff folks do not like stays on top because people give attention to the attention whores. Every fandom has attention whores. Not like they put a gun up to your head.

..... You're confusing "liking" a show with making a porno out of children's shows... Some kids shows can appeal to adults as well, depending on how its done. The Animaniacs, Rugrats, Invader ZIM, etc are great examples. I can understand that there are people that hate kids' shows no matter how good it is. Reason why I bring up Invader ZIM is because its a "boys'" show that also has a female fanbase (so much so that the merchandise is targeted toward girls a lot). My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has the opposite fanbase. Also, you've never heard of Invader ZIM? I highly recommend you watch it, seeing as how its a children's show with some fairly dark overtones, part of the reason why it has a high fanbase

hahahaha. Most of the conversations we all take part in here are far far worse. If anyone saw your post history I'm sure they would be more weirded out than someone liking a silly show :P

I'm fine if you like something, even if it's a kid's show. The difference is being obsessed to the point that you call yourself a "brony" is just weird to me. Is there a group like that for Invader ZIM fans?

Not as far as I know.. Still, I see what you mean. Personally, bronies don't bother me unless all they talk about is Friendship is Magic
