i'm a brony and i know it

on men in fandom

The point at which men feel compelled to make a separate, masculine fandom name for themselves, the better to differentiate themselves from other, presumably female fans inhabiting the same space, is the point at which they feel their gender to be not only relevant to their expression of fandom, but so important that it needs its own word, lest we confuse them with women.

The fact that men seem only to be interested in doing this on entering traditionally or predominantly female fandoms says a lot about the logic behind it. Where fans are presumed to be male, there’s no need to assert their maleness with a masculine name; where fans are presumed to be female, however, they strive to differentiate themselves, not only to void the risk of being mistaken for women, but to rebrand the actual property as being for men

If such men were genuinely interested in disproving gender binaries and the sort of sexist logic that tries to steer their tastes in other directions, as is sometimes claimed, they wouldn’t feel the need to establish that the thing they like has masculine properties, as though they couldn’t or wouldn’t like it otherwise. This isn’t like the oft-ignored female fans of comics and videogames asserting, rightly, that such things are for everyone, which category happens to include them; it’s men expressly stating that an originally or traditionally feminine property isn’t really feminine, the better to make it for men.   

Following this logic, female-dominated fandoms are only worth joining if men can make absolutely sure that their support isn’t confused with female support, or their interests with female interests, the better to assert their more selective ownership of the property. Crucially, this move also has the effect of forcing women to either accept the gendering of the fandom and adopt their own, feminine nomenclature - possibly one the men themselves have created, heedless of the fact that it was irrelevant prior to their insistence that it wasn’t, as per the term pegasister - or to refuse the binary and so have the male term become synonymous with the fandom as a whole, as though male interest is the only kind that matters.

tl;dr: If you’re a guy and your first thought on approaching a new fandom is “how do I make a name that describes my interest in this thing while letting everyone know that I’m a dude”, then do us all a favour and stay the fuck out of it.  

anonymous asked:

I'm all for making jabs at homophobic pricks and I know that guy's been a pain in people's rumps before so tease him all you want, but was the brony jab really necessary? I'm a brony, and every brony I know supports LGBT+ people. Our fandom has our own share of idiots, but I'd rather not be lumped in with that trash

TUMBLR MAN
A Parody of “Piano Man” by Billy Joel
Written and Performed by Codot

It’s 3am on a Saturday,
Usual crowd’s logging on,
There’s a young man on my follow list,
Slamming a hateful Anon.

He said “Dude have you heard of lobotomies?
You might want to give one a try.

And if you don’t think that it’s right for you,
You could always fuck off and die.”

Ohh Blah-de-blah, biddy blah.
Blah blah, biddy blah blah.

Publish a post you’re the Tumblr Man,
Publish a post tonight,

‘Cause we’re not in the mood for reality,
It’s boring, withdrawn and uptight.

Well Sarah’s a Superwholockian,
With a penchant for starting a feud,

While most fans are a pleasure, her petulant measure,
Augments her severe attitude.

She says, “Codot I think you’re an idiot,
If you can’t see that their love is real.

So I’ll write to their wives, tell them run for their lives,
Because they interfere with my feels.

Ohh blah-de-blah, biddy blah.
Blah blah, biddy blah de blah.

Now Tina’s a Fanfiction Novelist,
who never had time for a life,

and she’s talking to Tony, who’s clearly a Brony,
and claims Twilight Sparkle’s his wife.

Social Justice has gained mob mentality,
Pointing fingers while passing the buck,

and there’s two people tiffing o’er ‘Gif’fing or ‘Jif’fing,
when really man, who gives a fuck?

Publish a post you’re the Tumblr Man,
Publish a post tonight,

‘Cause we’re not in the mood for reality,
It’s boring, withdrawn and uptight.

Now I know that I’m being a little harsh,
t’ward the site that I used to adore,

but I can’t operate whilst I'm mired in the hate,
that is lurking behind every door.

And I’m sure that I’ll be catching hell for this,
Through the morning, the day, and the night,

But if you abuse me for my point of view, see,
All you've done is proven me right.

Ohh Blah-de-blah, biddy blah.
Blah blah, biddy blah de blah.

Publish a post you’re the Tumblr Man,
Publish a post tonight,

‘Cause we’re not in the mood for reality,
It’s boring, withdrawn and uptight.

So a Brony tried hitting on me in a coffeeshop today

I am literally parked in the furthest corner of this Starbucks, with my tablet out, my computer on the little table and my backpack on the other stool at the table. The coffee shop is slow and there is lots of space.

I am /conspicuously/ busy, am trying to do homework, look up apartment rates and talk to my friends.

And then the fedora walks in.

Okay so here’s my two cents on the whole Steven Universe r34 and “gemtlemen” bullshit

I have the exact same reaction as I did with bronies. That being this show isn’t for you. I mean fuck, it isn’t even for me!

You know who it IS for?

It’s for my littlest sister, because at 8 years old she is both tough and sensitive and needs to know that’s a normal human thing

It’s for her friends, who have two moms, and need to see their family isn’t weird or unhealthy

It’s for the girls in their class, because they need to know any kind of girl can be a hero

It’s for their entire class, who need to learn that friendships are strong, even if they sometimes disagree

It’s for their school, who need to know that a man is not an island, and a true community will always be connected and help each other

It’s not for you. It’s not for me.

It’s for the kids. Don’t take it away from them.

You know, I'm thinking of leaving the Brony fandom...

After all, all they ever do is produce

terrible

lazy

thrown-together

sexualized

fetishized

and ugly art

no Brony has ever 

produced something beautiful

invested hard work, creativity and time into something

or did ANYTHING good

I mean:

What

has

this fandom

ever

brought me?

seriously…

  • Senior Sociology major: Yeah I'm not really all that willing to come out to my parents as bisexual. I don't really want them to know.
  • Senior Physics major: I completely understand, I'm afraid to come out to my parents as a brony. I don't think they'd get it, you know?

anonymous asked:

I'm a man who is fascinated and disgusted (like watching a train wreck) by the way many men are treating women online and in real life these days. Catcalling, the MRA movement, "nice guys", Bronies... I just don't know what happened (although my non-academic guess it has something to do with increasingly isolated, anti-social, pornography-filled lifestyles). On behalf of the good guys (not nice guys!), I apologize for these boys. I hope you all find the men (or women) you deserve.

I want to give a call to action for men who are considering sending messages along the lines of this one. By sending us these messages, you are obviously trying to separate yourselves from these creeps. But chances are, you have, at one point or another, engaged in similar behavior.

So I want to challenge all of you to a) critically think and reflect on your own behavior and continuously check yourself and, b) start calling out men on the internet and real life. Call out your friends. Call out your family. Call out that douche on reddit. Sending us messages apologizing “on behalf of your gender” doesn’t accomplish anything; it’s just asking for cookies for “not being that guy." 

We do sincerely appreciate messages like this one. It’s nice to know that men are equally disgusted by other mens’ behavior. But if you really want to help us, then please consider trying to actively change the culture around us.

  • Last week: I don't know much about Stephen Universe or why it's flooding my dashboard, but maybe it's cool. Maybe I'll give it a shot when I have a chance.
  • One week later: The show may be good, but that community is about as combustible as a room full of thermite, which is not something I want anything to do with. It's not worth the drama or the tantrums.
  • I mean I guess technically speaking since I'm a brony and keeping bronies out was the intended goal, mission accomplished, but you might want to take a step back and think about how it comes off when your first reaction to the mere notion of someone developing an interest in your show and wanting to join your fandom is automatic hostility and anger that makes the over-the-top Superwholock stereotype seem sensible. Certainly does not create the atmosphere of a welcoming and positive community.

nc1701cn  asked:

I'm actually really glad that you watch MLP! It's a really good show with such good lessons for kids but bronies totally ruined it for kids and the rest of us and now it's seen as super weird to watch it and it makes me sad.

Yeah, I don’t know, I’m really conflicted about that whole subject. On the one hand, the fandom has bloated into something so grotesquely large, I wouldn’t be surprised if its harming the actual target audience’s ability to enjoy the thing. On the other hand, I feel like “hating bronies” has become the new “hating furries” - judging an absolutely massive amount of people by the actions of a vocal minority and making it “cool” and “morally correct” to loathe all these different people based purely on the fact that they happen to like the same cartoon.

It could be argued that “normal” fans wouldn’t call themselves bronies, but the thing is, chill, harmless fans do do that. Not everyone is aware of the consequences of labeling an unintended audience in that way. Not everyone is informed. I used to have a bunch of fellow MLP-fans as friends (of all genders), who gladly called themselves bronies, just because they thought it was cute. They weren’t hyper-obsessed or did weird shit at cons, they just doodled art of cute ponies and had a song or two on their phones. Normal fan things.

I don’t know. I haven’t visited the fandom since season 2 wrapped up, so I don’t know what’s going on over there. But I’m hesitant about condemning such a massive amount of people just because they’re uninformed and have become generalized according to their least likable members. Things are rarely so black-and-white, in my experience.

As for the show itself, yeah, it’s super cute! I love the characters so much. And the art style is gorgeous, there’s some gr8 design choices going on. To be honest, I own way too much merchandise for my own good, I don’t even really use it or display it or anything, I just wanna own it. It’s all locked away in a box under my bed, but I need it just in case

(you hear that, CN, people hoard stupid shit because the creators paint the likeness of things those people are emotionally attached to on the stupid shit - you should get in on that)

This year’s theme: POINT AT EVERYTHING.

I made the same face in every picture and I’m not even sorry.

BRONYCON WAS SO MUCH FUN AHHHH. It was my first year as a vendor and I thought it went pretty well! I didn’t bring much to sell- one AKS print, a bunch of buttons, ears, and my mom’s pony bags. But the buttons were a big hit! And the ears sold pretty well, too. I made up the money I spent on materials with some left over so WOO.

I’ll be putting the rest of the stock on my Etsy site once I take some pictures, so be on the lookout for that! Yay!

PICTURESSSS I didn’t take very many of them. I captioned the ones up there… BOOTH! FANS! FRIENDS! SWAG! BAGS!

Hanging out with all the Tumblr peeps was AMAAAAZINGGGG. Especially trottingdeadmod, acuddlemonster, ahappypichu-mod, regal-masquerade, askrustynail, technomod, shinyshaini and piratedashmod who I hung out with the most. And also meeting / chilling with twizz-doodles, cybermagus, kaiuchiha15, penguinpotential, askseriousrainbow, askmerriauthor, askrainbowlizard, nightguardmodkoipony, lexxmod, sombrashyshady, jestre, jitterbugjive, raikissu, darkflame7, inkie-heart-art,  magnetmod, askdukeponyminormatorantheonlycottoncandy, wirelessponyfillyqueenchrysalis, fisherponflufflepuffasks and then people who I can’t get the linkie thing to work with like Violet Rain and then there’s like 20 more people who I can’t remember their usernames enough to name them but I KNOW YOUR FACES AHH DON’T HATE ME (oh I found my sticky note where I tried to write down everyone’s names here’s MORE PEOPLE like redventure and askninjatwilight and outofworkderpy and ask-googlechrome and southparktaoist and bleedshark and I know I’m still missing people aHHH)

I also got a lot of physical fanart from some rad folks that I’ll post later and COOKIES from one guy and TRUFFLES AND THAT SOMBRA MUG from wulvbane and IT WAS SO MUCH FUN and shiny you are like a real-life Rarity because you are both generous and fabulous and I need to play Twilight’s Secret Shipfic Folder at some point and uh uh GOSH DARN IT WAS JUST SUPER RAD and also RUSTY GAVE ME MORE HONEY VODKA and KOIPONY GAVE ME A SHIRT

Definitely want to go back next year and definitely am thinking about vending again! Except maybe actually give myself time to make prints or something. …Even though it seemed like prints weren’t selling very well in general. Maybe I’ll just make 80000 more buttons.

ALSO HOOVES LINE WAS FUN and my team and I were pretty dumb buuut when you throw a bunch of strangers together to do improv, you can’t really expect much. Team Hashbrown aka All The Musicians I Have Never Heard Of But They’re Famous So I Should Have Heard Of Them Oops were really good.

AND THE TUMBLR PANEL WAS REALLY FUNNN. Hopefully it was informative, too. I had fun flailing around on it, anyway. 

YAAAAAAY HORSECON

also the mariott was ALL ABOUT some bronies, man. They had ponies on their hotel keys, they played pony on loop on the TVs, and they had a whole room downstairs filled with tables and microwaves and giant projections of colorful horse. They were not kidding around.

IT WAS SUPER FUN
