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.)
