Official appology to Bronies

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 20, 2013, 5:26 PM


As an old school my little pony fan, an appreciator and lover of all generations past and present, I never liked it when people called me a brony. I always thought, 'Well gee, just because it's new and trendy right now doesn't mean I'm a bandwagon jumper. Do these 'Bronies' even know who Greek Lady Bird' is?'

I didn't want that association on me because I felt it cheapened my own experiences with the franchise. I was here from the start after all, why shouldn't I hold myself to a higher standard.

I always considered myself a pretty humble person, so catching myself in that line of thinking kinda kicked my feet out from under me. It was selfish, even haughty of me to think like that.

www.scrnland.com/p/bd/ <=== I watched this preview to the new Bronies documentary which I will be buying as soon as my finances will allow. I teared up. These men and boys who are brave enough to admit liking something meant for girls, hell, even young girls. Getting their car keyed, verbally abused...Maybe I'm just emotional but maybe I'm ashamed that even in a small way, I was kind of against the whole Brony thing. I didn't like the porn and the 4-chan origins of much of what went on. It unsettled me.

It was a narrow way for me to be thinking, because it's gotten so much bigger than that.

I'm sorry. I never meant, even inadvertently, to say what people can and cannot like. People should be able to love what they love without fear of insinuations and stereotypes. I'm ashamed that I was ever a part of it.

My distaste for the word Brony is forgotten. I'm honored to share my love of all things mlp with you <3

This is My Family

I have nothing against furries. I haven't had a problem with them for years. I just don't want to be called one is all

Bronies are basically starting out how anime fans did before it got really popular. So I feel for these Brony guys.
I was physically and verbally abused all the time. People kicked me, spit on me, threw food at me and purposely tried to injure me in P.E. class.
Called me all sorts of names; Nerd. Weirdo. Geek. Freak. Lesbian. Satanist (Yeah, they called me a Satanist for watching Anime).

I'm not a huge MLP fan myself, but my BF is a Brony. I'm not going to tell him he can't watch or enjoy the show just because I'm not that into it.
Heck, he's willing to dress up like the Monarch from Venture Bros. when I dress up like Dr. Mrs. the Monarch, I'll dress up like a pony for him in public. :)

well everything on the internet there gonna be some porn to it , can't stop liking something because someone have a sexual fantasy about it , There would be nothing you'd that you could like there are people who have sexual fantasy about trees and inanimate objects and common household products and tooth brushes , Doesn't stop me from brushing my teeth though lol. I've had a friend and we both work on studying African culture , She doesn't worry about drawing character black human woman nude in her art lol just because some guy on the internet will think oh that good porn, they walked around in minimal clothes in many villages in Africa and she damn proud of it(That another thing I dislike about this culture , were quick to reduce any form of sensuality or simple nudity to hardcore porn we lack any kind of nuance . Will reduce everything from Tasteful pinups , simply an attractive woman regardless of stated context . It Annoys the fuck out of me we seriously need to grow up . it getting old and it a particular an American/north American habit . Wouldn't be able to make anything as an artist if that all you worried about .

Anyway about the brony if someone is a man who enjoy a female related show (Americans won't accept it ) Woman are inferior weak in are Christian Anglo-Saxon mythology., That not what strong man should be doing ! .He must be a sick disgusting evil pervert , or a pedophile!.Dont' really understand the Brony thing either ,just thought it was a show with the same level of story quality given to something like foster home from imaginary. I can tell you one thing though if I had a been about Lots of woman liking a Male related show for teenage boy >_> there would be very little discussion on if something is wrong with these people.Gender equality my foot lol.

Kudos to you Thunder, it's always hard for a person to admit something like this. I probably made the same mistake, I was just lucky that the guys I spoke to didn't catch on for the first while (until I figured out that they're okay) ^^;
