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.

Bronies write M-rated fanfics that only a person with a brain covered in metal can begin to take the slightest enjoyment from, since that's the closest thing to eroticism they'll ever get.

this really needs a smaller version.

I know a guy who's mom doesn't allow his little sister to see this on the internet after she saw what the fans did to it. -_-; I'm also sick of it since every little thing that I search online has ponies. :puke:

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.

Have you ever thought that maybe you are wrong. You act as if what you have to say about fandoms is absolutly correct: that they are filled with nothing but immature braindead people. Not ALL people in fandoms are rabid or crazy.

Can you AT LEAST give me a decent and concise reason WHY you have come to dislike this show, aside from the obvious that its just a stupid animated show that adertises their toys to little girls? I just want to understand why you feel the need to let your opinion come off so harshly.

OK, here's my decent and concise reason. Firstly, I don't hate MLP:FIM as much as I used to. The Internet is moving on from it (now, Minecraft is the obnoxious fad everyone follows) and I feel like I can take a deep breath and accept it again. It isn't shoved in my face nearly as much. In fact, I'm now more sick of getting comments on my anti-MLP stamps. No-one gives a shit about anything else I make, just my stamps. Sigh.

My reason for originally having such an intense hatred of it was because at the time of its mass popularity, it was so unavoidable and so disturbingly overrated that it made me feel sick. To witness such astronomical praise and for a kiddie show was, frankly, bewildering and infuriating. Nothing deserves complete universal acclaim, and nothing is perfect. Well, except Toy Story 2. That film's absolutely perfect. In my opinion. I wouldn't want everyone to go nuts over it, but to me it's perfect.

But I digress. MLP:FIM's popularity was extremely extreme. So extreme that the worst, most disgusting elements of it were frequently brought to the forefront. All of the pornography, adult fanfics, sex plushies, terrible art, the embarrassing conventions, fandom in-fighting and "brony confessions" were visible to everyone because bronies made no attempt to hide it. In fact, they embraced it. You could click on MLP videos on YouTube and find porn in the related vids. That's how easy it was to discover what they were doing to it. I made this stamp as a response to that. It also ruined the show for me. Hell, the show wasn't that good anyway.

Bronies were selfishly trying to see how far they could twist the show, and it was making feel sorry for the actual target audience who would either see it instantly, or log on one day and see it. This never happened with any of my childhood shows. But with MLP, the adult material was instantaneous, popular enough to almost outshine the show's popularity, and made the whole brony thing more gross, weird, pathetic and pedophilic. Because of the show, DeviantArt became increasingly annoying to use because it was packed with bronies, and everything else made the show so tiresome. Seeing those multicoloured horses everywhere you went, on every single website, was painfully annoying, like a computer virus. Bronies themselves were insufferably arrogant and impossible to reason with.

But now, I don't care anymore. I've moved on. I still have no interest in MLP and even many of the fans are tired of it but I now merely shrug when I see it. The brony vs anti-brony war, if you can call it that, is over. Neither side lost or won. We just ran out of reasons to continue fighting. Zzzzzzz
