Okay so this is a can of fuckin worms I’m opening here, but fuck those worms, I got shit to say about my formerly favorite fandom
fuck you guys
no seriously fuck you guys, i joined this fandom back when it first began and holy shit i swear to god it was the nicest group of people i ever had the pleasure of associating myself with
they were all kind and accepting and beyond one or two assholes it was mostly a calm and happy place with everyone understanding “we are the peripherary demographic, it should not cater to us but we still enjoy”
and sure the show made references to bronies, usually subtle background events or having derpy speak which were cool little tidbits that were cool but we didn’t NEED them
but something changed after a while
the once accepting and loving community became spiteful, sexist, homophobic despite previously welcoming feminimity with open arms (im talking about the guys in the fandom). And I was in denial for a while despite seeing a lot of evidence to the contrary. I shrugged it off as just being one of those few assholes every fandom has. But I kept seeing more and more.
So I won’t be calling myself a brony anymore.
I didn’t want to admit one of the fandoms actually made me a better person i like to think had turned into a den filled with dudebros with trilby’s (yeah they think they’re wearing fedoras, theyre actually trilby’s tell them that it wil piss em off)
because it used to be so nice.
i saw the bronies as a place where men could get into and show there like for feminine things without worrying what society thinks. and it was. and i loved it, i always liked feminine things jyust a little more then masculine things. of course the fact you have to differentiate the two is stupid but thats just how i am.
and then it changed.
I’ll still watch the show and enjoy the fan content (so long as it’s not something like molestia, ew) like the music, the fan animations that come from it, as those are usually from the part of the fandom that IS still nice… for the most part. But I will not be calling myself brony again any time soon.
Thanks assholes for ruining such a wonderful community, learn to respect women when your watching a show about talking magical multicolored horses.
