Stop Defending Your Fanbase by Eternities22 Stop Defending Your Fanbase by Eternities22
"Not all bronies are like that!"
"It's only 1% of the fanbase!"
"Those are just stereotypes!"
"Just ignore them!"
"Every fanbase has bad fans!"
"It's just a loud minority!"
"Don't lump us all together!"

I see these same pathetic excuses all of the time on YouTube and DeviantArt, and they annoy the hell out of me. I'm talking about the rabid white knight bronies. The ones that stand up for the fanbase so valiantly that it comes off as arrogant, childish and inconsiderate. If you're a brony and proud of it, and you witness a brony behaving badly or acting obnoxious, don't just stand there defending yourself; that just makes it worse. Actually make an effort to let them know they're being rude. Good bronies are able to accept that the fanbase is full of bad eggs. And no, it's not a "tiny part of the fanbase". If it were a tiny part, rabid bronies wouldn't be so widespread, and you wouldn't have to constantly make these same, worn out excuses every time someone complains about their behaviour.

It actually is a rather small part of the fanbase, and people don't have to admit anything to you.

Yeah, but are you able to accept that every fan base is full of bad eggs? I mean, everyone doesn't have to make stamps or tell them anything. The real solution could be to IGNORE them.

There are three kinds of Bronies:

-Rabid Bronies who hate on everyone who dislikes MLP and only talks to and likes other Bronies.

-Bronies who have the show as a big priority and might have a few other interests, they can accept if people dislike the show, but tend to not always admit the fanbase can be wrong sometimes.

-Bronies who like the show and dislike the fandom (a lot of it) and critcise on Rabid Bronies. These are the best Bronies.

I'm afraid I'm split between the second and third, I went through this at one point: seiya-meteorite.deviantart.com…

I refuse to call myself a brony even.

I agree with that a lot. Rabid fans: fans that smudge ink on the sane, normal fans' faces.

Admittedly...as much as I love the show, I'm nowhere NEAR close to trying to be arrogant, childish, or inconsiderate, including if I were to say some bullsh:iconbuysomeapplesplz:t like that. I don't try to defend them, I try to help others try to ignore the ones who ARE like that. I make an effort to let Rabid Bronies know they are being rude, by being mature. I am a mature brony, and I will do what it takes to help others with their experiences. If they wanna attack me, let them. Even if that makes it worse, I'll still stand by my point. Ain't gonna bother me none, nosirree.

Also, NO: I'm not a rabid white knight brony. I am simply stating my argument.

Admit that your a rabid brony hater and, shut the buck up, you rabid bronies, because no one likes having a rabid brony shoving sh:iconbuysomeapplesplz:t down their throats, when anti-bronies and such are pointing out simple flaws that can be easily corrected, by doing a simple action.

I know the fanbase isn't perfec and tends to be bad; here's an experience I had: seiya-meteorite.deviantart.com…

I'd say the good and bad is more half and half.

Oh trust me, we got TONS of crazy members in this fandom and it literally drives me insane when Rabid fans come and ruin everything for others! So I'm not ashamed to admit that the MLP fandom makes an embarrassment of themselves on a daily basis.

I'd have to agree, in fact, look at this: seiya-meteorite.deviantart.com…

I swear sometimes fans think too deeply and end up unintentionally ruining things for others (not that anything was ruined for me there)!

Seriously, I like FiM but it's not the be-all end-all. I grew up with the older generations and it sends me into a head-spin at how these people bash the older generations and those that like it (or grew up with it in my case).
