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.

I used to be a brony until the fanbase became to horny, hypocritical, and dangerous. After realizing the bronies were becoming more aggressive, I couldn't associate myself with them anymore. I still love the show, but the fanbase is no longer kid friendly. I hate to admit it, but I can't keep it to myself any longer!

agreed with the most part and don't you love feeling the love and tolerance with most bronies especially when you came from a different fanbase like the furry fandom,Plus especially the white knights's that go nuts over a simple rule34 drawing.In that case in my opinion those two are the type of bronies that are ruining mlp for me i mean g i wonder why i haven't become anti brony yet.

Keep your nose out of our fanbase if we bother you THAT damn much. You look very bigoted for shaming the fans of something YOU don't like.

They're actually a loud minority, pretty much.

"Bad" is up for opinion.

Rabid bronies are fucking annoying in every way and there are so many of them. :stare:

"in the wrong?"

I think he means the ones that send death threats to DHX for making Equestria Girls, etc, etc.

Of course, to a hater, a rabid Brony could just be someone that puts up pony art on their DA page.

I dunno....

I've never met someone who knew every brony in the universe :D (Big Grin) All fandoms has it's baddies
but making a dumb stamp like this is just completely rude and judgemental

It's absolutely hilarious that you have completely missed the point of the stamp.

You cannot defend your fandom. You should not. Doing so is a waste of time.
