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've never met someone who knew every brony in the universe :D (Big Grin) All fandoms has it's baddies

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.

You must be entertained easily by someone
who is far more mature then a dirtbag like you :)

You're wasting your time by judging the pony fandom
when you'll never stop us from liking mlp fim or ponyfying everything
OR defending our fanbase :D

TBH I really cannot care.

if hating bronies makes me I dirtbag, then I'm the biggest dirtbag ever. I'm a big sack of horse manure.

I never defend rabid Bronies.
They make the rest of us look like idiots.

I actually like Littlest Pet Shop more than this show, honestly. And while it may not be as popular or good, I still feel it's over-hated. ROYALLY OVER-HATED.

I like to thank the idiotic fanbase for my overall current views on MLP in general.  In fact, there are more episodes of LPS I admire for being down to earth, compared to MLP, whose slice of life stuff is the only truly good aspect of said damn show. Otherwise, I've seen better on Steven Universe, Clarence, Amazing World of Gumball, Adventure Time, Regular Show, Wander Over Yonder, Gravity Falls, Dan Vs., the list goes fucking on and on!

MLP is only being sustained because of an idiotic fanbase. And the channel it is on is only sustained by said show, which is even worse.
If Littlest Pet Shop is cancelled because of this fucking pony show, I will never respect this channel it's on ever again. EVER.

Rabid bronies are in the wrong.

There, I said it.
The MLP fanbase is huge.  Numbering in the tens of millions, actually.  Due to it's massive size, one tenth of a percent of the craziest fans will also be a big number.  And these people are busy.  Very busy.  Crazy people usually are.  Sending death threats to employees of DHX, screaming at people who don't like MLP, etc.

As much as I wish these people's computers would catch fire, it's not going to happen.  I have asked these people to calm the fuck down but being crazy, they just ignore me and carry on.

For the sake of comparison;

Millions of people drive to work every day without incident, but only the 1 or 2 fiery crashes is ever mentioned on the news.
Just something to think about...

OK, how about "To hell mentally fucked bronys"? I may be a brony, but that dose not mean I don't love blood and gore. Besides, I am fully aware of the sort of shit you are referring to. And yes, they make me mad as well. I more of less just go with the flow, ignore what I don't like, and watch what I do. You seem as thou you behave identically.

So yeah, I was once a Brony...
