The Problem With Being A Brony by Nimaru The Problem With Being A Brony by Nimaru
This is the first version:

Many people talked about the text being too small and I thought it was pretty crowded and scattered (though I still think it was a good first attempt). So to make a better poster, I condensed the crap out of it, both in text and in images to make essentially the same points but with less space, more pictures, and fewer words. I also uploaded a MUCH larger version so you guys can print your own though I DO have it available as prints over at Redbubble:

Buy it here if you like it :)

Anyway, I think it turned out really well so what do you think?

EDIT: Cheeseheads are Green Bay Packers fans (football) and the Blue Army are fans of Aerosmith

EDIT2: A lot of people today have commented that they can't believe that anyone would consider KH girly, but it's been more than a decade since it came out so many people forgot or were too young to remember. It's a "Disney Princess" game that uses the word "heart" a lot and has touchy feely "I LOVE YOU MAN" bromance between the main characters. Obviously it's awesome, but I've seen guys who couldn't get past that and wouldn't play the game.

This is actually quite good, but the one part I object to is putting Rush Limbaugh fans ("dittoheads") in there as an example of a loyal following with a name for its followers. I don't really think it's helpful to compare a group to Rush Limbaugh listeners when you're trying to encourage support for them.

Other than that, this is great.
would it be okay if I included a link to this in a journal entry to silence all ignorant bastards? it's okay if you say no. that's the point of asking for permission.
Of course! Honestly I don't think you ever need permission from me or anyone else to just link to things :)
The journal is up. :D thanks again for the permission. I made sure to recognize you

Amen, but that's why I'm mostly on dA or something private/brony related you don't get hate here/// but I love how you explained everything in our fandom x-x


I'm surprised my account hasn't gotten any hate yet :3

Still don't like My Little Pony, still think it's weird to be a Bronie (or is it spelled brony?) but this is a pretty well organized argument. And I've liked some weird things too (had a Power Rangers binge lately) so I can respect where this is coming from.
You bronies do your thing, just don't try to make me join.
Well if you got from this that bronies aren't really any different than other fans, then we're all good here :)

Well said sir!
Though is it so strange to ask why grown men like ponies? just sayin. lol
Why is it strange for grown men to like anything that's good? I like any animation as long as it's fun and interesting. The more interesting question is: how did they make a show that was so good that even grown men enjoy it?

Thanks so much for making this! There have been times where someone has mentioned the "outrageous outfits" thing and I'm glad you were able to give me an example for a defense. I've never thought about it in this light before and I'm glad to have been enlightened.

Well done!
