Alright, I've been wanting to do this rant for a while now, so, here it goes.


So, you know me. I love memes. But one meme that's just blowing way out of proportions is My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Now, I'd like to clarify one thing before I get into this rant:

I LIKE THE SHOW. The show itself is very well-written. It was after all,  created by Lauren Faust, a brilliant animator for Cats Don't Dance, The Powerpuff Girls, and Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends. She believes that entertainment for girls should be just as good as the stuff they make for boys, in other words, not "Sparkle princess magic love power!" shows with flat characters and non-threatening villains. She really is helping the fight against the Animation Age Ghetto.  So, with that in mind, let me return to the rant.

When it comes to fanbases, we've all seen the worsts. We've seen the rabid Sonic Fans, the Naurotards, the Twitards, and the Wolfaboos, but when it comes to irritating fandoms, I think the Bronies deserve a special mention. They're like a plague, spreading their memes to places like Memebase, 4chan, and ED, and unlike Sonic or Twilight, they can get away with it because FIM is a current meme in of itself. It's ridiculous. You go to Failblog, what do you see? BOOM. Ponies. You decide to go to Troll sites, what pops up? BOOM. More ponies. Youtube? BOOM. More motherfucking ponies. It's like they're trying way too hard to be noticed. And the thing is, they ARE. But it just goes unnoticed because, again, the show is practically a meme just for being FIM.

Another thing that bugs me is the really creepy bronies, the ones who will go to a Twilight Sparkle fanart and post "SEXXY." Seriously, this is coming from a Furry. Nothing is sexy about 10-year old ponies. And comics and memes about them "Clomping", or masturbating, is even creepier. For every brony who makes a "Clompin' off" Macro, god destroys another nugget of innocence from the world.

Finally, they're trying way too hard to be noticed and a part of internet culture. Only SOME of the memes are funny. The "When I'm-" memes are sorta funny. Inserting already existing memes into the fanbase isn't. Seriously, stop it. Princess Celestia doing something mildly humorous doesn't qualify her as being a full-on Troll. It's annoying when 90% of the memes for FIM are things that other people established. You could put a Troll face on Pikachu, but that doesn't mean that it's the next, new meme that deserves to be spammed on notable "meme" websites. The bottom line is, it's repetitive and obnoxious to insert your ponies everywhere. And screaming BRONIES BEFORE HONIES and BROHOOF at random doesn't help. Keep it in your own fandom.



Seriously, the bronies need to stop. It's old, and frankly, obnoxious to see a gazillion ponies everywhere and everyplace on the internet.

Well done rant, I tried the show myself and it just wasn't good or didn't connect with me...it's just a bit to put of my league. But the fanbase is the most annoying...you should see this here:

They go this far just to get their stupid pony fetish noticed... I'm sure that guy who owns the car feels so embarrassed...

I couldn't agree more. As a brony myself, I find that there are certain members of our fanbase who can really bring us down. If you do encounter any of these, the best piece of advice one could give would be to ignore them.

That's exactly what I do, they're too obnoxious to talk too in the first place...

I don't hate all Bronies, I understand the situation: one irritating asshole making the entire group look bad. It's the same with Furries, because of one whiny, freaky-ass motherfucker, the rest of them look bad.

You sir, have an amazing opinion. This coming from a furry, I honestly don't mind the show, but some of the insane fans out there. I have lots of bronies for friends, but some people just take it too far. If you submit a video that's anywhere against the show, they flag down your video. And what happens to theirs? NOTHING. Bullshit like "Molestia", the .MOV series, Cupcakes, and Tiarawhy video's aren't even age restricted! WTF? They also have to spam their shit everywhere and hate on everyone who doesn't like the show, haters have even recieved death threats. They only care about themselves, and have LOADS of butthurt. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind most of you fans, but you insane extremists just need to GTFO.

I've seen most parts of the fandom (included R34 stuff) but most of the fandom just isn't what i look for.

I've tried it because i didn't want to judge the people who like it, before i've seen it myself.

I just think it's a little sad, when in 7-10 years, the girls who watched it as kids, are going explore the internet for the first time.
I think it'll be a horror for them, to see there childhood heros in such way (some) bronys made them. Pinkie a psycho, rainbow dash a lesbian, and so on.

I like some of the gore and other fanmade stuff. But i could care less if someone dislikes it.
I keep it behind closed doors and only talk to people i know also likes it.

(sorry for the long post)

I agree with you completely. Most of the fandom forgets it's a children show aimed at little girls. I really don't like how much porn there is for it, it's really obnoxious (and hardly sexy)

Some of the fanmade things are pretty cool, but most of it is just "emo ponies bawwww", or "Pinkie's a craaaazy serial killer! totally not based off of Cupcakes!" or "sexxy ponii flanks <3"
