Bronies Will Ruin Childhoods by Eternities22 Bronies Will Ruin Childhoods by Eternities22
Letís face it. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a childrens cartoon. It doesnít matter how dark its themes sometimes are, or how many "frightening" characters there are, or how many references it has to things kids wouldnít know about. Itís a family show, primarily aimed at young girls. It always was and always will be. It doesn't take a genius to understand that.

But is the terrifying MLP fanbase for young children? Can they get involved? Nope. Not in the slightest. The fanbase for this show is now overflowing with shameful adult content, including immense quantities of despicable pony porn and grimdark art/videos/fanfictions which are in no way safe for kids. And that isn't even the start of it. As we've seen time and time again, bronies have evolved into uncontrollably obnoxious, unpleasable Internet monsters when it comes to their obsession, making massive mountains out of the tiniest of molehills to the point where it is almost impossible to believe and put up with.

The more you think about it, the less sense it makes, and for sane bronies, ex-bronies and non-bronies everywhere, the fanbase is like a nightmare that won't end. But trust me - no-one has it worse than the show's actual target audience, the young and innocent early school-age girls. One day these little girls are going to have grown up, will learn to use the Internet, search for the show they loved (or still love) so much - and see everything. Yeah.

Think of how horrible it will be for them when they find the wonderful cartoon they loved as kids was also a gargantuan Internet religion worshipped by thousands of over-obsessed teens and adults. Imagine how theyíll feel when they find out how their show was used to create copious amounts of porn, fan-fictions, ridiculous crossovers and parodies. Imagine what will go through their mind when they read about the embarrassing brony drama, the insane conventions, and encounter the fandom's darkest and most controversial side. Their childhood will be destroyed, and they will be utterly mortified at the idea.

It's happening as I type this, and it will continue to happen. It's totally inevitable. Bronies are ruining childhoods. It angers me that there are so many bronies out there that have no shame in uploading pornography to DeviantArt and using "Rule 34" as an excuse, or saying "Welcome to the Internet" to cover up rabid, tasteless behaviour. I no longer care for the show myself (the chances of me every becoming a brony again are a billion to one) but I am still sympathetic for the younger fans, because they're the harmless ones who are going to get a nasty surprise when they log on to the Internet in the near future. They are the ones who are currently experiencing their actual childhood, and in a few years time they'll grow up and find out about the horrific things that happened to the show they grew up with.

I criticise on this stamp. I think that all bronies are just people who like to watch a show. Just like how a girl likes a show PERPOSED TO BE MEANT FOR BOYS. that's where tomboys come in. Just the same. With bronies. They're just a dude, who likes a show meant for girls. And I'm not saying it's meant for girls, but sometimes it's supposed to be meant for them. Still though if a five year old girl sees a pink colored pony doing this:

You will get scarred for life.

We're in a place called the Internet. Stupid people will go overboard and draw Rule 34 "fan"art of a show thay watched as a child or make violent, stupid parody videos of it on YouTube. It's Inevitable. MLP:FIM is NOTHING NEW. If you think that this fandom is bad click over to the Sonic Fandom. No. Fandom. Is. Perfect.

It's so cute how you're trying so hard to convince I'm wrong.

a little kid can't even search up her favorite character without coming across porn :( it's sad how this humanity turned out to be...

THIS is how you draw attention to your page?

Ok unless you're specifically searching for it you are not gonna get any adult content to show up.
And tbh if they're too weak to take that kinda stuff, they're not old enough to be on the internet. There's much more amazing fanart than just that ya know? At least appreciate bronies who don't go nuts over everything.

uhm... What about outside of the internet? Bronies don't exist only on the internet. A child may see a brony convention in their own town, we other they are walking by or checking out one, and QUIESTION why there are adults dressed up as child show charicters. If you were a child, would you enjoy seeing innerpropriate behavior of these people in a pony conventions? And before you say most conventions are tame..I understand that but the one I saw in New York?.. That was terrifying.
As long as its colorful and interesting, kids will think its a cartoon for them because we teach kids that animation is for kids. South park and Family guy contradict this, but many people don't realize this.
So, what if a little kid saw an anime, like Hetalia, and then saw an anime convention.  That would probably freak them out.
Once, I went to an anime convention. It made me ashamed to be a Hetalia fan. These people where WEIRD!!
The people that do that are a small minority and other fans of the same fandom HATE THEM.
