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.

Take a look at this and tell me this isn't one of the most arrogant statements you've seen on DA, and I'll tell you that you're nuts! XD

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.

"It's only 1% of the fanbase!"
"Those are just stereotypes!"
"Just ignore them!"
"Every fanbase has bad fans!"

Whatever just shut up, stop judging people on what that like, your acting just like rabid bronies.

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).

But isn't ousting rabid bronies and defining them as in the wrong a good thing, be it in the defense of the fanbase or not? Who are you to define "good" bronies to begin with? Sounds to me like you just have an irrational hatred of bronies in general, and try to justify it every way you possibly can. That isn't healthy.

Gotta give this stamp credit where credit is due. There's some validity to those claims. One can really only speak for oneself when all is said and done. That whole ballpark figure percentage of 1% or 10% of the fandom being cloppers... so not true. It's higher than that. (As for me, just to clarify, it is not a certain type/species but individuals of various aesthetic merits who draw attraction. I'm notorious for loving fan artist renditions Celestia in both equine and human forms equally for example.) But numbers and percentages are irrelevant, the individual must be willing to call a spade a spade sometimes no matter his or her tastes.

Also so true, the whole "every fandom has a bad side" thing is a poor defense.

Rabid bronies and anti-bronies alike are overbearing.  

Everyone just live and let live.

Rabid bronies do wrong things but I've never, and I mean NEVER seen or came across a rabid brony. I've come across rabid HATERS but not rabid BRONIES. One I came across a rabid hater calling all bronies autistic freaks. I swear I've never seen a rabid brony in my lifetime, I swear. I know they're out there but luckily, I've never come across one. Not yet, at least.

I love the show, personally, but rabid bronies DO annoy me.

Yesterday I saw a conversation on the Youtube comments to a piece of brony music (this isn't 100% accurate but this is pretty much how it went down):

Non-Brony: I'm not a brony but I love this song.

Random Crazy Brony: If you're a hater go away cuz haters gonna hate!

Civil Brony: He isn't hating. All he said was that he wasn't a brony.

I know this isn't the best example of a rabid brony, but still. What was the point? The person said said they weren't a brony, not "OMG GO DIE LOLOL UR ALL GAY," and then for no reason at all, this guy tells him to leave the video? Even after the non-brony complimented it?

Yeah, I like the sane people who don't like the show. (I bet the song was Discord, I seen a lot of comments like that) 

but rapid bronies like that are idiots. Be glad they didn't call you gay, and actually complimented bronie's creative minds.
