"One day in the subway, James saw a red cat with a wound to the leg that likely resulted from a fight with another cat. It was obvious that the cat needed help. James could not pass and took the cat to the vet. With a little medical treatment and prescription drugs, the cat quickly recovered. At that point, James found it impossible to say goodbye to Street Cat Bob. Bob followed James everywhere he went. As James played the guitar on the street and Bob sat nearby, revenues increased dramatically. People found it difficult to pass when they looked at the cute kitty. James went on to write a book describing their adventures in the street which was full of life – both dramatic and comedic. In the book, James says that he could not have imagined how meeting Bob would change his life. His friendship with the cat healed him from a life that had been very hard. Most likely, if Bob could speak, he would say the same thing.”

Um, so here is a book I am going to go BUY… NOW.

The amount of brony hate on this website is fucking astounding.
For a site that’s so hell-bent on encouraging people to defy gender roles you sure do a great job of shaming males for exploring feminine things. If a girl watches anything marketed towards males, whether it be a cartoon or sport, this site glorifies it like no other.  (Empowering females! Yay! You go girl!)  But HEAVENS FORBID greasy, fedora-wearing neckbearded MEN like something that is marketed to girls. (HOLY SHIT YOU RAPIST STOP RAPING THINGS FOR LITTLE GIRLS YOU RAPIST!!) The blatant hypocrisy is so phenomenal it nearly pains me to see so many people feed into it.  How can you glorify one and condemn the other and then try to pass it off as ‘encouraging the demolition of gender roles’?  Not to mention if you try to generalize a ‘female gamer’ like that and devolve her into a brain-dead attention whore those SAME PEOPLE will scream and make a huge bitch-fest over it.
And about the R34, I pose a question: have you been on the fucking internet?  Good God if you look up ANY character you will find porn of them.  With all this fuss over the clop material on this website why aren’t you all petitioning R34 from other fandoms?  Have you seen the sheer amount of porn for nearly everything that’s ever existed?  Ever?  Oh, no, I forgot, it’s only bad when a male does it.  Admittedly, there will be instances when mature material is not properly tagged, and that’s then you contact the creator and ask them to tag it.  Things that won’t help are passive-aggressive posts feeding a generalization and your blatant blind eye to other fandoms.
Isn’t it also funny that generalizing bronies is A-Okay but the minute you generalize a fandom like Dr. Who or Homestuck or SuperWhoLock people come crying to your ask box screaming, ‘Don’t generalize my fanbase! Waah!’?
Also, I think DWM was a stupid movement.  Congratulations- you ‘got a blog removed’ because you don’t like darker humor.  What exactly will that do for the prevention of rape? Absolutely nothing.  While bronies have donate over $2,000 to a RAIIN charity, about $74,126 to help a young suicide victim, AND started numerous sites dedicated to charity work, you all have succeeded at throwing a fit about ‘rape culture’.  You can say ‘well, donating doesn’t erase the bad!!’ all you want, but the bad does not erase the good, either.  Deny it all you want, but bronies have collectively done more that that movement has done ever.  (In addition, JJ doesn’t fucking deserve all the hate he’s gotten and is still getting. The blog is DOWN. BOTH SIDES shut up about it, which includes anti-bronies telling him to jump into traffic and the bronies still upset about the blog being removed.  It’s over, just let it go.)
TL;DR- Shut the fuck up with all this brony hate unless you’re okay with being a huge hypocrite.  How about, instead of circle-jerking to a bunch of stereotypes about a fairly diverse fanbase, you actually do something productive?  Get off your computer and actually contribute to this world we live in.  And I’m not trying to justify any of the bullshit bronies have done.  Our fandom is not perfect, and I have personally had a rude encounter with a brony myself.  But it’s not as vile as people make it out to be, and for everything you can say negative about bronies can be easily applied to every other fandom.
(And before I get called gross male brony scum I’m female, have been apart of the fandom for about two years, give or take a few months, and I don’t identify as a brony.  I just find it fucking disgusting that that people justify hating an entire population of people for no reason, which seems to be a growing trend here on Tumblr.  Also, I’m submitting this anonymously because I know this would warrant me death threats and needles vitriol from anti-bronies. Congratulations, I can’t even submit my own opinions on this website.)

The comments on this are disgusting. Cut it out with the opression olmpics, ans stop pretending that just because you’re oppressed more that makes their oppression less valid. I have a bunch of brony friends, and guess what? About half of them are girls. Guess what else? They watch it for the same reason most of tumblr watches disney. It’s lighthearted and reminds them of their childhood. Guess what else? They hate the porn as much as everyone else. People seriously need to get off their high horse and stop hating everyone who they think is more priveleged. Two opposing inequalities does not make an equality. It just makes things more fucked up. And the blatant oppression olympics is absolutely appalling.

I really hope this post gets circulated because people need to understand that villainizing bronies actually does do harm and every time I see a post hating or parodying bronies it makes my blood boil just a little bit more. I’ve been in the fandom since the first season and let me tell you I’ve seen more positivity and content being generated by bronies then I have of any other fandom.

Yes there are bronies who fit the bill on what the stereotype says bronies are, I’m not denying that, but claiming that we are all like that is downright mean. It’s posts and content like that that make bronies out to be fedora tipping horny furries that make people who aren’t like that feel bad about being a fan of the show. And what if they are? That’s theyre business and shouldn’t be getting hate about it. Let’s remember that there are R34 of EVERYTHING. As much as we’d like to think otherwise innocent shows and game like Pokemon (let’s remember gardevoir, lickitung, and jynx) and digimon do have R34 and let’s remember that these shows were marketed for kids as well. I see it sometimes when I’m just browsing the tags or going on google images or Deviantart when the artist doesn’t tag it. Where’s the movement to get rid of that? Before you all say anything no I do not support R34 of any kind, I just find it silly that you all hate on one while say nothing about another that has almost te same mindset.

Stop acting like the bronies are one person or are all the same and just because it’s male dominated that it’s something evil to stomp out. That mindset is hypocritical and harmful. Remember that one kid got hospitalized and in a coma because he was a brony and the entire community raised funds and created content for him until he recovered and another kid got suspended for bringing a rainbow dash backpack and getting bullied for it. You know what the principal said? “Maybe If you don’t bring the backpack you wouldn’t get bullied”. Sound like a certain argument that is always circulated?

By the way if you’re trying for that “all fandoms are generalized” argument, then great! We have the same idea. Go write a rant for your favorite fandom and about how it’s generalized and how it’s harmful for all the fan because the rest of the internet sees you as a joke, horny for the characters, or ruining the fandom for the audience.

before you all go “OMG dudebro”, I’m 100percent female. I really shouldn’t have to specify my gender. Do all of you really think that gender determines whether a fan is a good person or not? Wow. Rude.
