I have no idea. having only heard of it on a radio show that tests whether men are bronies, I assume it's normal fandom - watching the cartoons, knowing all the details. If there's slashfic or Adult cosplay involved, I do not wish to be informed.

Furries were three times less likely to consider themselves exclusively heterosexual than non-furries, four to five times more likely to say they were exclusively homosexual, and far more likely to report bisexuality or orientations such as pansexuality or asexuality

Interesting.


The 23.5% of furries also identifying as bronies did not significantly differ from other furries in most respects; they reported greater experience of bullying, slightly worse physical health, and appeared to have a slightly less-formed sense of identity

Furries did not differ significantly to American non-furs with regard to psychological or relationship health, or self-esteem, but had a more-developed sense of self and identity


Still trying to wrap my head around this part.

Furries are still predominantly male, and do not appear to be reproducing yet

So there's good news?

Yeh, I'd say if you dress like a Disney chipmunk to socialize and have "sex", I'd say you have a pretty well-developed sense of self and idenity. I'd say you have self-realized and accepted your own farked up identity. You probably know some good dry-cleaners, too.

Do they dress up like ponies? How the fark would I know? I'm a less evolved human being. I prefer sex with actual humans dressed up like actual humans. This cartoon thing..well, I leave that to psyciatrists.

Furries are a very well developed subculture that's been around for decades. They have tried very hard to be respected, and more importantly, they just want to be left alone to do their thing without bothering anyone.

Bronies have been around just a year or two now, they have lots of /b/tards, they spew their image memes everywhere, are very high profile, and you can get damn near any of them to admit to wanting to fark ponies. Furries might want to have sex with animals but at least they won't come out and SAY it to a complete stranger. In general, bronies are even creepier then furries. Bordering on rapist territory in terms of their social deficits and creepiness. I don't think bronies are rapists btw, just the ones who are 'out' are just as creepy as rapists.

The ones that want to nail anthropomorphic females that are portrayed as fully mature, adult members of the show's society are not the ones you need to worry about. It's the ones that would nail the young'ins that you really have to worry about.

Aye, it is just a cartoon. Good number of bronies don't understand that. The number of bronies that have gone headlong into the deep end compared to the total #, is a LOT higher than a group of furries. That is to say, finding a brony that will tell you "yeah ponies are cool, wahtever" is like finding buried treasure. Most furries don't want to even have to think about ponies, meanwhile the furries that fell off the deep end are more than happy to spew incessant nonsense about ponies.

Bullseye.

Bronies, those that go to cons, are not that mature as a subculture yet, and have not realized the PR value of not talking about farking plush toys in full view of the public.

Like the furries, there's a sexual undercurrent to the "brony movement." I'd venture a guess that the furries are jealous about all the attention one sexual fetish is getting because it involves a popular kids toy.

If only the furries had limited themselves to Bambi characters, they too could have the fame and recognition the Bronys have.

I've got my toe in so many subcultures you're going to have to be a bit more specific.

I don't care what you do, as long as informed consent is involved. I just think it's patently obvious why Bronies get more flak. They overshare with the general public instead of keeping to themselves. This makes them creepier.

I have no sexual or romantic interest in anthro creature-people. Bugs Bunny, Woody Woodpecker, the Ninja Turtles, nothing of that sort excites me and frankly makes me shake my head and wonder why furries find them interesting. Neither do I find any full animals sexy or alluring, that makes me feel dirty.

However, I am incredibly attracted to half-human beings such as centaurs, merfolk, nagas/lamias, satyrs, etc. If the top half, head and face, and genitals are 100% human. Ariel? Bow chika bow wow. The centaurs from Fantasia? Unf unf. This guy?:

Oh baby, wrap me in those coils. I can't explain why, either, I'm just really attracted to them.

The thing is... I've been in the fet community for quite some time.

Pretty much every outgoing person you would meet at a con, regardless of what kind of con it is, likes sex.

Because sex.

I'm a brony. Proud of it. Don't give a damn if anyone else likes it or not.

I'm also a kinkster. Proud of it. Don't give a damn if anyone else likes it or not.

I'm also a Rennie, SCAdian, LARPer, gamer, trekkie, petrolhead, sewing nut, corseter, techie, farker, bNer, slashdotter, etc etc etc..

I know some people in each group that like sex. Go figure. Some of them are freaking weird. Go figure. Doesn't mean that every activity I engage in is sexualized for me.

There is a sexual element of this fandom, yes. However, that exists for ANY fandom, especially one with internet access. The same thing exists for Star Wars, Star Trek, I'm sure many video games, all of them have people that would love to fark something or someone from that show. Stop pretending it's something brand new or shocking. Freaks exist- the rest of us just have to deal with them.

I'm a pretty kinky person, and I am a brony. The only place those two happen to overlap is the fact that I know a couple Dominatrices who are also bronies, and they really turn me on.

That has nothing to do with My Little Pony, it's because they are hot.

/surprisingly, I think that is the first time in my life I have used the word Dominatrices, which spellcheck tells me is indeed a real word. Cool.

I don't think that's the basis of the backlash though. I think must people get fed up with furries and bronies because they make everything about those two things. Is there a popular video game? They should make a game about ponies! Is there a popular movie? Here's my fanpic of the main characters as tigers! You like Harry Potter? What if Harry had sex with Hermione who had been turned into a cat?

I ran a website hosting business for a while. A furry wanted a site, and not exactly wanting to be known as "that guy who hosts furry porn", I asked them if they were going to upload porn. "NO WE AREN'T FURVERTS. WHY WOULD YOU THINK THIS?" Insert long essay about how furries aren't ALL perverts.

2012-09-23 08:41:57 PM  
From my perspective Furries are more organized and are more of a culture where as the bronies are more of a undercurrent of that culture.

Like otherkin are also in the furry region of internets, but they most definitely are also bonkers. General furries I know just like having sex in fursuits and are more hippy tier than I want to fark a sheep tier.

Bronies are more I want to actually fark a pony as it will be my waifu, otherkin believe they are the pony where as most furries are just roleplaying and aware of that.

So the earlier point with kinks isn't a point, the mental differences are quite great between roleplay and actually doing things.

I can see that. That bit of information did slip past me when I made my first observation. All the fan art of major characters of games/movies as like wolves having sex is bizarre. But I just don't like to condemn people because I probably like certain things other people would regard as strange. On the other hand, I would never subject my fetishes onto the unwilling or uninterested.

Brony is name given to people who are participating in embracing the fandom of My Little Pony-Friendship Is Magic and it's community of artists and enthusiasts.

That's it. End. Anything else is something someone else is trying to add to it, which us not present at its core.

(You may also find the term Pegasister used to describe female fans, although most of them also go by "bronies". The reason for that is because the etymology of brony uses the masculine "bro" in the portmanteau of bro's and pony)

Good lord, why would you want to wear a corset? Women hated them so much it became part of the suffrage movement.

Whips, handcuffs, the occasional slap, maybe even a taser - I can understand that. Corsets are just farking torture. You may as well admit to liking waterboarding.

They make Fat women into skinny women with big boobs. This is why they are incredibly popular with the renfaire and BDSM crowd. The BDSM crowd likes the pain too. Mostly though, it's about fitting 50 pounds of fat in a 10 pound outfit.

People who actually MAKE the things for either scene tend to get a lot of poon. Most of it unfortunate.

/If I had a nickle for every fat chick in a corset I saw in my BDSM con and goth days...

Not that I want to get into the "defending bronies" camp, but was this even a worthwhile exercise? I'm sure the Brony in question wasn't giving a speech to the Family Council Matters group, or something like that. And if he wasn't speaking to the class, then the whole point is lost, isn't it?

I suppose if a Brony was giving a speech at the "We think Anthropomorphism is bullshiat" yearly conference might prove the point, but otherwise it doesn't make sense.

I dunno, it seems to me if that you have to pretend you're a dog to be able to have sex, you're completely dissociating and don't have any true sense of self. Yes, you're aware of your...limitations, but you have very little identity grounded in the truth, like for instance, that you are a sexual human and that the person (hopefully it's a person) that you are farking is also a human no matter how desperately you wish it were otherwise.

So yes, a sense of self, no sense of identity. Makes perfect sense to me.

They don't even discuss the show, it's just a big circle jerk, small talk, and mutual admiration. They have their own dedicated board, but refuse to use it. Mods delete their threads and ban them frequently, but they simply reset their router or use a new proxy to continue posting.

Why they would persist in doing this in a hostile environment, I don't know. I suspect some kind of narcissistic personality disorder is at work.

The ultimate gateway furry

media.comicvine.com

Anthromorphic characters are an odd subject matter. It's always been a means of exploring topics without using humans, so you can do things with them in metaphor you'd get in trouble for using human faces. But now the crew from Looney Toons are just oddly shaped people in the new series.

From what little I've seen, the ponies are verging on non-anthro. Anything sexual in that dimension is a touch bestial. Zig Zag, at least, is still a humanoid. But the ponies are little horsies, and that won't change because of the nature or the art.
 
2012-09-23 11:21:29 PM  
From what I've seen, the thing that drives the rabid bronies is massive inner shame and insecurity. I can only fathom that this shame is centered around the (often hotly-denied) sexual attraction to the characters. They can't stop bringing it up because they're fishing for acceptance amongst their peers.

The solution is for these people to come to terms with who (or what) they are, rather than to demand everyone else accept them and never say a bad word about them.

I can't tell if you make them, wear them, or put them on someone else.

Good lord, why would you want to wear a corset? Women hated them so much it became part of the suffrage movement.

Or are we talking about decorative corsets that don't actually torture the wearer? I can't tell. Some people get off on being ridiculously uncomfortable.


Because properly fitted steel boned corsetry is more comfortable, supportive and better for you than a bra?

Because they look fantastic?

Or just because they want to?

It frankly irritates me considerably that people seem to take so much interest in such things, as if it mattered to their own lives. And then judge those people, just for being different. Which I find particularly asinine, because as I keep saying, there are no normal people in the world: everyone's a freak to someone else.

I can see where you're coming from. As a collective force, we can be annoying like that. Part of the virality is that because it's already been mashed up with everything, it's virtually guaranteed that in any thread of sufficient length, there's likely to be at least something to which a brony can relate. When the first one calls it out, the rest of the herd jumps in, and once the avalanche has begun, it's too late for the pebbles to vote.

And why not whale bone, since that was the original skeleton?

I'm not accusing them of being liars, but I think the current definition of a corset isn't near what the original was. "comfortable" is not an adjective anyone in the 17-1800's would use to describe a corset.

fluffy2097: Rent Party: Which one is the furries?

Yes.

But the furries have had more time as a subculture to get rid of the bestality people in their midst.

Bronies, those that go to cons, are not that mature as a subculture yet, and have not realized the PR value of not talking about farking plush toys in full view of the public.


Or as I say with other parts of fandom, the established ones have some sort of critical mass to say what is acceptable public behavior, while the newer ones lack it. Not that some don't break it, but at least most of the older fandoms at least aren't cheering it on.

God doesn't exist. People do. It makes perfect sense.

Although I would say lack of religion is a good reason to throw away defined gender roles. Once you take away the whole 'greater purpose' and all that rubbish there really isn't a whole lot of a reason to make other live the way you want them to anymore.

Well, yes. And, looking at the thread, the Bronyism controversy completely dominated. The absurd levels of atheism (Almost 4-in-9? Actual majority if agnostics are included???) among furries didn't even ping on anyone's radar. For comparison, the only comparable demographic results that come to mind are the National Academy of Sciences (from memory, 70%+ Atheist, 20%+ Agnostic) and the PRRI/Georgetown study of the 18-25(?) demographic (ditto, 11%, 12%). The next closest is the Pew 2008 data for the 18-30(???) demographic (ish, 3%, 5%???)

Yes! The concerns raised in this thread (and others) about what happens when bronies congregate, whether online or in meatspace, are real-world examples of belief circle clashes. Never mind the belief circle clash between bronies and furries, suppose a major brony convention were held on the same site as a gathering of the juggaloes...

That too. Bigger kudos from me for the Rule 34p ("There is pony of it") proof. It's one thing to claim there's pony of it, but I really wasn't expecting to find an actual augmented reality app that I can actually use to ponify my world like a character out of a Vernor Vinge novel.

If someone makes a joke about Fluttershy and photosynthesis, is she not a tree?

I see it as 35p until someone actually does it, then it becomes 34p. At the time I asked the Googles, it had been 34p since last July, I just didn't know it yet. It's possible my query collapsed the wave function in favor of the app's existence, but the problem with that hypothesis is that it's unprovable. (Proof of said hypothesis wouldn't necessarily require magic, but it'd likely be regarded as Anathem. Funny what happens to when folks get cooped up for a thousand years, innit?)

Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, and back in the real world, I've got a rather big day ahead of me tomorrow. Maybe not quite as big as Adrien Brony's day, but I know it's coming up, so I gotta hit the hay sooner rather than later. (Confound this day job, it drives me to ponies!)

abb3w: To be viciously unfair, that's more or less how I stopped leaning libertarian. I encountered an alarming fraction of sociopaths, and re-examined my predisposition from first principles.


Heh. I look at libertarianism the same way I look at most major religions: a set of good ideas to inspire people to be better than they are, but not a working technical manual for civilisation. I regard libertarianism as a set of worthwhile ideals to aspire to on a personal level -- responsibility, self-reliance, the commerce of integrity, and so on -- but not a workable roadmap for a society made out of human beings who are not all Robert Heinlein. That's just asking for more than people can deliver.

Anyway, the same sort of thing gradually pushed me out of radio operations, too. I loved doing it myself, and it was incredibly rewarding on the rare occasions I got to do it with like-minded people; but far too much of the time, it's a huge collection of idiots and crazy people who all thing they're very special and doing something really special, when they're mostly just stroking their own egos. I got sick of that and moved into policy and lobbying, but then realised that wasn't much different -- same fools, I just didn't have to share coffee and doughnuts with them anymore. Some of them smarter, most of them not; and a lot of them even crazier. I also went back to first principles, and reviewed everything from the ground up: What is it? What does it do? What is it for? And so on. Now I wander back into those same forums as the cranky old lady who tells everyone they're fools. But because I went throught that introspective process, I've also now become the person they don't like who has the extremely annoying habit of usually being right.

What that has in common with your experiences with libertarianism is that these are necessarily shared experiences. (Though I'm currently working on a solution to that for radio. Stay tuned.) I was probably harsh in acting as if brony fandom is not, because now that I really think it through, I realised that it probably is. In that case, I owe that guy an apology. But I still stand by my principle that liking things for how they appeal to you personally and individually, regardless of how others act, is most valid.

abb3w: So, the existence gender norms are more instinctively fundamental than the existence of Gods?
That does make some sense.


I'd break it down a bit more than that. The mistake our culture makes is in conflating masculinity with maleness. They are very objectively not the same thing. A six-year-old boy is not masculine, because no child that age really can be. But he's just as male as Hulk Hogan, and no one would deny that. It's that conflation, more than anything else, I think, that leads to all the social stress and idiotic bullshiat we habitually characterise as gender fear. As if a drag queen literally loses her penis while performing, instead of merely concealing it. That's a moranic conflation, I think anyone would agree. But it's that same kind of thinking, perhaps on a less conscious level, that makes some men freak out over other men enjoying a cartoon about anthromorphic ponies.

if_i_really_have_to: Don't really know why people hate furries so much; did the school mascot rape you? Non-furries get up to far more bizarre stuff in the bedroom than a bit of yiffing in a squirrel suit. As long as everyone's having fun and everyone's consenting I've not the slightest interest in what people do with their tingly bits.

/How is being a furry worse than watersports
//Or BDSM (the hipster perversion)


People are, by and large, pretty childish, unsophisticated, and narrow-minded. Just look at the world around you. Furries are subjectively 'weird' to a fairly large majority of people, and so they assume that that's the same thing as being *objectively* weird. Without ever asking themselves to explain: It's enough for them that there's at least a superficial degree of difference apparently -- or at least presumably -- exceeding the degree they'd expect from the company they normally keep.

This is the basis of my "Everyone Is a Freak" maxim: Put a gang of street toughs and a klatch of business executives on either side of a room, and ask them who's the freak in the room. They'll all give the same answer: those other guys. Try it with any pair of groups who all think they're normal, or normal enough, but very different from the other. I promise you'll get the same result every time. Whether all or none of them are right becomes academic at that point, and thus the question itself becomes academic, which is really the point I want to get at: It does not matter. It never did, and never will, and everything people make of their differences with other people is meaningless noise. I don't mean that it's meaningless to talk about -- it's not, differences are interesting -- but that it's meaningless to consider or pursue any deeper relevance to it. There isn't any. Yet people actually get killed over this bullshiat, which makes me want to go live on another planet, maybe one populated by grown-ups. To me it's all extremely childish and heartbreaking.

I find it fascinating that for several pages that brones were just being brought up because people hate them, and then people were biatching about how ubiquitous bronies are. In my experience, bronie hate is everywhere, and even the slightest mention of them brings upon pages/hours of vitriol.

That's called a plushie as far as I know. I always felt they were pretty harmless.

Wait, what?

*looks up corseter on teh intarwebs*

I can't tell if you make them, wear them, or put them on someone else.

Add sell to that, and the answer is "Yes".

Good lord, why would you want to wear a corset? Women hated them so much it became part of the suffrage movement.

Whips, handcuffs, the occasional slap, maybe even a taser - I can understand that. Corsets are just farking torture. You may as well admit to liking waterboarding.

Or are we talking about decorative corsets that don't actually torture the wearer? I can't tell. Some people get off on being ridiculously uncomfortable.


The point is you don't wear them for long :)

On a more serious note, most people today are using them as a fashion statement. Not to force themselves to give them an unnaturally small sized waist.

This.

Though it's not the willingness it's the insistence that I personally have a problem with. Everyone has kinks, but bronies talk about theirs all the farking time. There is nothing you can talk about that won't be steered towards farking ponies. It's insufferable.

I still don't understand that. If you believe some number of posters are spamming nonpony threads with large numbers of pony pictures, feel free to ignore those posters. Don't go into the pony threads and block anyone and everyone, including the haters yelling at the bronies. That doesn't even accomplish its stated purpose.

Wouldn't it be easier to simply not go into the pony threads in the first place?
It's as if one went into a barbecue pork restaurant, and started yelling at the patrons, full of vitriol, because they actually serve pigs there! ... Were you expecting something different?

When an A Lister tells someone doing exactly that nobody cares, and you disagree with said A Lister and then claim not to see the behavior the dork was being called out on, maybe it's because you don't read the posts before disagreeing.

No worries. It happened in the last pony thread. Someone posted screenshots of themselves ignoring large swaths of posters in the thread. Near the end of the thread, they came back trying to complain to Drew that fark.com wouldn't let him ignore more than 999 people or somesuch. I'm still not entirely sure whether it was an elaborate joke or not. It seemed an awful lot of trouble to go through either way.

Well that's dumb. Still, I think some people haven't experienced how annoying some bronies can be. They have some kind of MLP monomania, where anything and everything becomes an excuse to post ponies. They literally do not talk about anything else. It can get really annoying. Some of them seem to really revel in the opportunity to be annoying. And the original person who mentioned putting people on ignore, Ratometer, put qualifiers on his comment:

only because I can identify persons from a very narrow demographic, those who repeatedly post pony pics on Fark, to put on ignore.

Being annoyed by repetitive behavior is a very human trait. Maybe some people aren't aware of the phenomenon on the wider internet, but I am, and I don't fault people for being annoyed by a very small vocal minority. If they want to voice that annoyance in a Fark thread, what does it matter?

Oh, of course; it reminded me of that guy.

I don't understand complaining about ponies being in a pony thread. If you find spammers of anything in any unrelated thread, by all means, ignore away. But in the pony threads there are going to be pony pictures. This is obvious. I'd thought it was a marvelous schema on the part of the fark admins, to help draw out the ponies from the regular threads and concentrate them instead in one place fortnightly. And yet, people who apparently abjectly abhor ponies will come into pony threads anyway, and then protest the presence of ponies there for some reason, where they have already been sorted out of the regular threads explicitly for that reason. This defeats the entire purpose of the drawing out and sorting conversation into one place. 

Why not go into the Doctor Who threads and tell people to watch Battlestar Galactica? Or go into the Battlestar Galactica threads and tell people to watch Doctor Who? It makes about as much sense.

Personally, I try to keep ponies contained to Sports discussion threads, politics, and pony threads.

Sports, because Peyton is Magic.

Pony threads? That's obvious.

Politics? The Pony memes are usually the most intelligent posts in the middle of the Derp(y) storm.
