    We didn't make the last three threads. You can't call something cancer when your side is the one that has been starting shit as of late. To use a analogy that would be the equivalent of trekkies going on a trekkie forum and posting several threads about star wars all within a small time frame and then going, "Star wars fans need to stop being cancer on this forum".

    That's the irony of this thread. People starting shit and then going, "bronies why you starting shit?".

    Unlike "Trekkie/Trekker" which is very gender neutral.

    Easiest way for some hilarity in this thread, mention past comments by posters about furries geared towards furries and then see said members try and flip 180 and contort their spines in un-natural positions trying to make furries seem better than bronies.

    I've done this before, it's hilarious.

    All you need is post comments and threads they've made in the past complaining about furries and then watch them try to sweep it under the carpet desperately trying to rationalize it.

    you're saying this on a website about a fandom

    a fandom that inevitably has people just as bad if not worse

    like have you tried even mentioning the "sexual side" of being a furry to some of them? watch them leap to defense bearing their teeth ready to eat you alive

    Guys, I get it that yeah, extremists in the brony community are annoying but we don't need so many god damn threads about it. I also have no fucking idea where you're going where there is such a freak out because normally I see it on the opposite side.

    Most of the backlash from bronies I've seen are when people aren't like "I just don't like it". It's "It's a cancer and it needs to be stopped". And they're surprised there's backlash? Really? COME ON

    Nobody who isn't a brony did start shit though. Gibby's post in the thread was literally just "I don't like the show" and look what you guys arguing in favor of the MLP fandom did. The OP I posted is "bronies can (hint, emphasis on the can, as in, not all bronies) be annoying and weird and I don't get the fandom. Cue you guyscoming in here all up in arms and completely disregarding the OP and starting shit.

    People keep saying that there are too many of these threads but I did not see an active thread related to this rant other than people discussing the show itself and not the fandom. The only remotely related thread is on page 3 of R&R and has been inactive for 8 days so threads bitching about how annoying bronies can be doesn't seem to be this run into the ground subject that people are making it out to be. Unless I missed the threads in which I'd like someone to point them out to me.

    I also stated earlier that people flipping out on someone just because they like ponies is a dick move. This thread isn't about the casual fan. It's about the crazies and how annoying they can get. And yes, they do exist. Maybe you're lucky and haven't seen many of them, but it's not just people who irrationally hate the show bitching at bronies.

    But there was never a punch thrown! Unless you personally fit under the category of bronies I discussed in the OP you have zero reason to be offended at all by the OP. I literally worded it to not say that every brony is a psycho horsefucker who hates everyone who isn't a brony.

    Okay, temporarily coming out of my self-imposed lockout from FAF in which I called it a big, stinky poo poo dungeon for months.

    As it has been said before, most of the extremes that the brony fandom has can be compared to the extremes of other fandoms. It's more or less a "look in the mirror" thing. However, there is one thing that is uniquely special to the brony fandom that can make it unbearable to some. That one thing is the entitlement.

    Take the petty furry entitlement on how FA runs things that you guys see all the time, make the majority of the fandom feel that way, and you get how the majority of bronies react to things. Derpy Hooves gets edited in an episode? Bronies say that they were entitled to the shoutout due to making the show popular. No toys of background ponies or fan characters? Bronies say that they're entitled to them since it's what the consumers want. An episode wasn't 6/5 material? Bronies say that they're entitled to episodes that cost just as much as the extravagant season premiers and finales. It's with every episode flaw, every negative experience with a popular brony, and everything that can use entitlement as an excuse uses entitlement as an excuse. That's the main flaw with this fandom internally, not a lack of love and tolerance.

    As far as the like-it-or-not universal bronies on the internet, give it a year or two. That's a long time in internet time, but the fandom should be concentrated to its own spaces on the internet in that time. It's what happens with nearly all fandoms

    There's only one ironic thing that I can find in this thread: the original person asking the question seems to know more about the fandom than the people answering that question.

    And one more thing: there hasn't been a legitimate fursecution case since the "C.S.I." episode. You guys can bring up the "My Strange Addiction" episode, but you have to admit that you guys were partially responsible for starting that shit.

    Doesn't make it less annoying. Like I said before, I have no idea where you guys are going where bronies are flipping their shit. Mainly I stay here, DA, and FA (and occasionally memebase). For the most part, bronies stay in there own area such as the MLP megathread here and the brony page on memebase.

    My problem with it is not that they freak out it is that they seem to try to throw it at you as something you must like. Some people do not like insects does that mean that people who like insects are wrong... NO IT DOESN'T... nor does it make the people who do not like insect wrong. Translated to MLP/brony speak shut up bout it if i liked it i would watch it since i do not like it i do not simple as that, no magic and no unicorns. May a unicorn land on the next person who trys to "share the magic" with me.

    That's one of the differences between furries and bronies though.
    Bronies want more people to join and are excited as all get out whenever someone does.
    Furries on the other hand whenever the fandom grows even the littlest bit-

    See, people keep saying "furries are bad too!" but I am well aware of that. That doesn't mean I don't think bronies can be bad, and the fact that I'm a furfag doesn't mean I am not allowed to have an opinion on how weird bronies can get just because furries can get weird too. The entitlement thing pisses me off though. I don't think I mentioned it in the thread, but goddamn it's annoying. "We are the true target audicence we deserve to have the show completely changed to resemble the weird version in our minds." I've actually heard of the crazies saying they want the show to tackle mature topics, like sex. In a 5 year old's TV show.

    And I donno if that last part is a jab at me or not :V

    You must be staying in all the right areas of those sites then, because I've seen MLP literally banned from forums like atta mentioned becuase bad bronies come in and mess the place up by spamming it everywhere and just being generally entitled asses about it.

    Probably. I feel like the only furry that manages to stay away from fandom drama. Be it brony or furry. I'm generally like the last person to find out about shit.
