The Problem With Being A Brony by Nimaru

STOP! Click on the thumbnail here to see the greatly updated and improved version of this poster. I'm leaving the old one up for posterity, but the new one really is better.

NOTE: Click on the picture to zoom in. If you still can't see the text, try clicking the pic again to see if it will zoom in more. Alternatively, you can download it on the right if you still can't see the text.

It took me several weeks to make this and I'm proud of the effort. I've made several web articles explaining the fandom and fighting the stereotypes and ignorance, but haters just won't take the time. So I figured; why not a highly colorful infographic?

I avoided using ponies more than absolutely necessary because the point was to show people how other hobbies and fan groups act just like we do. Every complaint they have, is something we can find in their group too. And this infographic can be your everpresent reminder to them of that!

Good point, still don't like the show, but I don't hate, HATE is a very strong word. I still don't like it but I don't hate it but you make a very good point:colont:

Some shows simply don't click with some people.  I have never been a fan of Spongebob due to its low-brow, crass humor, utter lack of continuity, and unappealing character designs.  But those are some of the reasons other people love the show (why I don't even try to understand).  I have friends who are superfans of Spongebob, so I'm not about to judge their fandom.  Especially since fans of Spongebob tend to be somewhat eclectic, and thus we share interests in a variety of other things as well.  Including, in some cases, MLP.

Most important is not that you ever come to like the show, but that you never start to hate those of us who do. That's the mistake far too many people make :P

Dude, that first Lauren Faust quote is great and describes it pretty darn well. I watch it because it's a cartoon, not because it's about ponies. =P I've never been especially fond of equines. :P Not that I dislike them especially either. =P I find it funny that I'm actually into My Little Pony, it's hard to believe. XD It helps that I've never taken myself too seriously. :D

Being a trekkie for years (my entire life) before getting into MLP:FiM kind of prepared me a little, I think. It at least prepared me for the fat-guy-with-no-life stereotype. I even got laughed at once by a girl I liked for liking Star Trek. :P

Anyway, good job. :) It was fun to read and didn't come across as overly-defensive.

I love this, you made this great. Well done! You really make good points, what's important is a job and a hobby. A big part of your life! Stay inspire everyone, enjoy your favorite stuff you like and don't let the haters put you down. Like what you like, what makes you happy. Do it.


You make a good point with the rule 34, it's everywhere. Not only ponies, but other stuff too. 0_0

Yup it's ordinary for an hobby to collection stuff.

People could watch anything they like, it doesn't matter about age, gender.


And remember haters, if you don't like it, then don't search it up or talk about it, move on and look for something you like. Stop wasting your time.


Cyber bullying is for cowards, it's everywhere on the internet!


Never judge a book by its cover! Or a title, show, music, etc... and etc...!
