Actually, the first season was great, and most of the second season was good as well. You just need to take things in proportions. There's nothing to complain about, they just chose they don't want this audience anymore and changed their content appropriately. Simple solution: stop watching and forget it ever happened. That's what I did, and I'm glad I did it.

#1 - It's actually through an arcane initiation process known only by a secret society dubbed the "Bronylords." They are rumored to be satyrs who capture innocent men, remove their charisma and libido, and instill within them a dark devotion to the My Little Pony franchise in all ways their pathetic bodies can physically and mentally submit to.

the funny thing is is that what #34 says is actually spot on. The first two seasons were fairly entertaining for what they were, but most people either took it too far and became obsessed or never watched it and joined in on the hate.

I honestly don't know, #1. I tried watching it after an aquaintance at school told me how "great" it was, but I couldn't get through the first episode. Maybe it's more the fan-base community than the show itself.

#116 Maybe try a different episode (that is not 1 or 2). I find I usually have to watch at least three episodes (think "three bites" rule) before I can TRULY decide on wether or not I like it. I've tried two episodes so far, and it's starting to grow on me (help!) :) .

For me, babysitting is what started it. I was just babysitting the child of a family friend, she wanted to watch mlp, and before I knew it we had finished half of season 1. I couldn't believe I actually liked it.

I guess many of my dislikes were because of bad phrasing ("you" referring to any random "brony" rather than anyone here, which I guess is not too obvious). Whoops! For the record I am currently wearing a Pinkie Pie shirt. I just think it's cute & pretty, nothing more.

Actually, my brother, mother and I all used to watch MLP when it first came out. I'm a 17 year old gal, my brother is a 15 year old swaggoteer, and my mother (and I as well) are concert junkies. We all enjoyed it because the jokes were funny, the characters were (though a little inconsistent) fun, and the stories were well written. I admire the creator and think the art is cute. That's how I managed to get into it, at least. Besides, it's something to watch and talk about when you have to babysit.

There's something creepy about a grown male liking MLP. Any other cartoon, fine, but that's creepy for some reason. . I assume they all have creepy moustaches (no beards, though) to go with their fedoras.

It's not just that. It's that they have a huge sexual fandom, where either they dream/write/illustrate/talk about having sex with the characters or making the characters basically porn stars.

@74 Well, yes, that's there, but it's in most (if not all) other fandoms as well. Does that make it any less creepy? Of course not. But it's also less common than most people think. "Cloppers" get more attention than everyone else because it's so extreme. I would venture to say that most bronies wish Cloppers didn't exist because it reflects very poorly on the majority of the fandom. Love, A brony

As a Sonic and Pokemon fan it's much the same thing. You have your fans of the games and shows and what have you and then you have the furries on a totally different side of the coin. I'm the former by the way.

News flash: it was never written for people like him. Besides, most of us bronies actually do wear deodorant.

It wasn't written for anyone over the age of 4. Including you.

Similar to most successful forms of cartoon entertainment My Little Pony also includes some nudges and jokes that children won't quite understand, but that adults will greatly appreciate. Prominent examples are e.g. Scooby Doo, with all the references to weed, Phineas and Ferb, with their references to all types of 70's, 80's and 90's popculture, aswell as a bunch of other great shows that were created for children, but are still enjoyable for adults. That being said, the OP's brother is clearly a nutjob. Then again, every fandom of a sufficient size attracts people like that. [Remember Westboro? Yeah... like that.]

Bronies aren't just men,my fiancee and I are in the fandom thanks to my daughter, not all of us are bad, but some do take it too far. Message to ops brother, it's just a tv show, don't be a baby and find a new show and a new fandom

#88, you are what we call a pegasister; a female brony.

134, 159- Except that "Brony" has been a unisex term for sometime now. OP, believe me when I say that being in this fandom gives you more reasons to hate other bronies than being outside of it. Quite simply, tell your brother that you quite frankly don't care. Some bronies need to loudly be told to shut up before they remember that there are people who couldn't care less about the show.

I can totally agree with this. Not all of the MLP fandom are raging weirdos. I, personally, couldn't care less about the writing or even casting (though I admit, John DeLancy was an amazing choice for the trolling character... He's the Q of the pony world.) You tend to have "the special ones" in every fandom. There are ALWAYS going to be folks to give the fans a bad reputation, no matter the fanbase. Least I'm not a furry..... oh wait.

(Or this one?) my little pony, skinny and bony, flying through the air had a heart attack, crashed through my window, broke the glass, my dad grabbed a shotgun and shot it in the ass

17- So because I have an odd avatar with a hot chick in it, that MUST mean I am a furry/bronie. Right? You people are idiots.

That show is still on?

By  miyaviichan  |  27

Bronies are disgusting... It was never for you, you know? It's fine to like the show ( I do, my kid sis and I watch it together) but don't even whine about the plot. Why not make real friends, get a job, and move out of your poor, poor parents' house, hm?

How about you lose the attitude and let harmless people have harmless interests? "Disgusting" is the fact that people think it's okay to mock and hate on other people because they are into different things. Who gives a shit if he likes to work on cars or watch My Little Pony? It makes no difference in your life.

You're very quick to assume that everyone is like the small, disgusting group of men who obsess way too much over the show. I'm quite well off in fact, having a house, girlfriend and a dependable income. I'm also a brony myself and even have one poster around the house somewhere.

It does make a difference in my life. It's not completely harmless. What am I supposed up to when my 10 year old sister finds porn of ponies on the Internet? It's happened before. I didn't want to take her to that Equestria Girls movie because she'd be put off by all the grown men wearing rainbow dash hoodies (to be fair, there weren't actually that many old dudes around.)

156- You act as if pornography on the internet is a new thing. There is R34 of pretty much every cartoon that has ever existed, Spongebob, Scooby Doo, Fairly Odd Parents, you name it. There are even people who do not watch my little pony that draw R34 of it. Now I'm not defending cloppers, but I'm not attacking them either. The only reason you see more of that kind of stuff is because there are more people that follow the show. But for the love of God please do not lump me and the rest of us that genuinely enjoy the show and SFW fan stuff that comes out in your idea that anyone who watches this show is sexually attracted to the characters.

#156: Ancedote =/= fact. Your story about that bronie who had porn on the computer is an anecdote. There are plenty of bronies who do not have MLP porn. Besides, don't you know rule 34?
