Whenever there's something like these conventions that requires people to travel somewhere and take up most of their day on something that's just a T.V show, or a movie series, book series, whatever, alot of the people there are going to be the ones that are too invested and socially awkward.
I know a group of people into Anime at my College as an association, the awkwardness is thankfully extremely low due to the fact that's not all we talk about in there.
Few bronies too, but they aren't obnoxious about it unless someone brings it up.
The sole thing that annoys me with Bronies is the fact they have to spread their shit literally everywhere. It feels more like a cult than actually a passion or an interest. I mean, even furries don't tend to go as far as Pony people go. (Though Furry porn still goes miles further than Pony stuff)
Though I don't know if a Furry convention would be more awkward than a Pony one.
I'd say they'd both be pretty weird in their own ways. Though people dressing up in ponies freaks me the fucking most.
Somehow, I managed to get through this. I can't say I'm not disgusted but I still don't generalize most (most being the key word here) of the MLP fandom with people like this. I make a distinction between those who enjoy the show, and...erm...people like this.
But holy shit on a stick this was...pitiful? Contemptible? Abject? Some other synonym for miserable? Eh.
Max was even worse than the people he despised because he could just ignore it or just say "Y'know man, I don't like that stuff, can we not speak about it when we're together". Instead he starts crying and yelling because he feels like his friend is now a twisted evil corrupted mutated version of what he once was.
Adam was just an hypocrite fuckhead that you want to slap for being dishonest with himself.
A good friend of mine recently became a Brony
Now he writes fanfiction, only listens to weird brony music (like dubstep by DJ Pony, apparently thats a real thing) and only talks about ponies and how awesome they are
When I tell him that I find that at least weird he starts to prove me how harmless bronies are
It's terrifying, really
wow the guy who hates bronies is the most autistic of the entire bunch
didn't see that one coming
It was pretty sad to watch..
But I couldn't help but just laugh when I heard "SOMEBODY GET SOME BABY OIL" after the guy smeared his make-up.
Just got done watching it. Max and Adam seem like really insecure and broken individuals.
I didn't expect to see so many black bronies.
Watched the video
The Macdonalds and dungeons and dragons parts were just depressing
I am sorry but I don't understand this
Brony apparently is a new religion.
it's sad that there are people that socially... 'broken' I guess.
I mean, sure there's gonna be a spectrum of all things and there's obv gonna be plenty of completely sociable bronies but the ones in this video, just...
I could not understand.
I don't wish to understand.
Whats really depressing me most out of all of this video is the sweet ass banjo guy (playing the best instrument in the fucking universe) nearly tearing up because "they fucking took my best friend"
I can't even begin to try and relate to him, because its impossible in my eyes.
I have some bronies on my steam friends, but none of them are as bad as the ones in this video. I really had some "what the fuck am I watching" moments when I was watching this.
I honestly don't feel really bad for them.
From the way it sounds, a lot of the people didn't have many friends or a family to talk to, and were picked on in school. And for people to mature, they need to feel accepted. If these people never felt accepted as children, then I'm sure they feel accepted in this fandom. A lot of people may say that the whole "friendship and tolerance" thing is kinda gay, but people really do need to feel accepted in order to mature.
These people have found happiness in each other, which is commendable. Perhaps the show is just a mask or a reason to treat others kindly. Maybe everyone who's a part of the fandom does genuinely like the show. Who is to say? Either way, the show seems to be getting its point across, and perhaps that's exactly what today's youth needs.
"Ponies in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic reproduce sexually, so where are their genitalia? Pound and Pumpkin Cake were born, but through where? From what's shown you'd think they were like Barbie dolls, but we know for a fact that that's not the case. But why? Where are their vulvae? Their penises? How do they poop? How do they suckle? If these questions keep you up at night like they do me, join the Pony Plot Perfection Project. Our stated mission is to edit the episodes so that the characters are more anatomically complete, with their genitalia, anuses, and teats all right where they belong. This is not a sexual project, but anyone who wants to is free to become a Perfectly Proud Pony Plot Perfection Project Participant. Even if you lack artistic skills, you can still help on the artistic or management sides, or even just with recruitment through the Perfectly Proud Pony Plot Perfection Project Participant Pursuit. Progress updates will mainly be taking place at our blog, the Pony Plot Perfection Project Periodical: [link] This is where we will be posting updates, as well as imbedding the official Perfect Plot Productions. As of 04/27/2012, we are still in the Perfectly Proud Pony Plot Perfection Project Participant Pursuit phase, but once we have enough Perfectly Proud Pony Plot Perfection Project Participants, we can move on to the Pony Plot Perfection Project Planning Process and start assigning roles, developing a strategy, scheduling, and so on. After we have completed the Pony Plot Perfection Project Planning Process, we will start work on our Primary Product, a short proof-of-concept clip to show people we mean business and give us momentum going into creating the full Perfect Plot Productions. Anyone who is interested in helping us with our Perfection (the act of perfecting, not the state of being perfect) and becoming a Perfectly Proud Pony Plot Perfection Project Participant can contact us here, on the Pony Plot Perfection Project Periodical, or through our email at ponyplotperfectionproject[at]gmail[dot]com."
Fuck the guy above got it first
Wow, is that seriously a thing?
Screw everything I said above.
Fairly certain it's a troll thing, from what I've heard that DeviantArt page is very dead
I have this strange mix between pity and hate now.
At first it was just pure fiery hatred, only enhanced by the revelation that one of my own friends had been converted, and watching this documentary sort of humanized them to a degree.
I still greatly dislike "bronies" mind you, but now I just want someone to send these guys to a psychologist. I thought I had issues with people, but these guys just take it to a whole new degree.
I feel the need to shower after watching that...
Come to think of it, this is funny. I don't want to attend such convention, I never did. You'd have to convince me pretty hard. Oh well.
This is so fucking awful to watch. Makes me sad to watch My Little Pony. This also makes me want to blow my brains out because of how disappointed I am in humanity
Edit: Did that guy just call Fluttershy a he?
Edit2: FUCK THIS MAKES ME WANT TO KILL SOMEONE.
Edit3: Am I the only brony who isn't a fat pizza-face with a speech impediment?
