spamdog: And these people aren't going to turn around and persecute others, no matter how socially-unacceptable their behavior is.


This is the only part of your post that I take issue with.  You see plenty of reverse-persecution(comparable to lgbt's denigrating straights who dare "intrude" on their sacred threads, to include very similar claims such as projection of gay attributes to the "norms") on fark, though it has settled down some(as have the really denigrating anti-bronies...sometimes)

Despite all their supposedly turn-the-other-cheek philosophy, some will attempt to dish out as good as they get.

Muta: Could someone help this 50 y.o. out? Why are bronies cool?

The second most popular threads, after questionable porn, are bronie threads on 4Chan. I don't get it.


You're not the only one. I'm 21 and I don't get it in the least.

There's actually a bronies club at my university.

omeganuepsilon: some will attempt to dish out as good as they get.


That's because some of them feel very haughty now that they're part of a big pack of like-minded people. It's something they've never experienced before. Also because they're doing it on the internet, nobody can give them a fat lip over it. That, and they can be VERY insecure, so they respond to every slight, whether real or perceived.

If you were to take one look at them in real life you would immediately understand why they act like they do. The stereotype of them being losers is true, unfortunately. You just have to stay away from it. I know it's hard to fathom but you should feel sorry for them, not be angry with them.

Meh, if they weren't the losers, someone else would be, and if we were simply nice to everyone, more people would go postal and shoot up schools or theaters...

Society needs a certain amount of strife, a certain amount of sacrificial black sheep to reinforce bonds, otherwise it will have issues.  It is human nature to have such hierarchy, and to act on it. It is nice to pretend that we're some sort of utopia where human nature doesn't apply, but it's deranged to believe it.

Thinking that people "shouldn't" be put off by someone elses creepiness is to cut out a large part of man's instinct.

I wouldn't call it anger so much, most here don't actually get angry in a physical sense.  It's more of an attempt to correct.  A parent punishing a child isn't angry by necessary fact, it is often done for the betterment of that child.

IMO, these people deserve to know that they creep others out, some of them severely so.  Same reason you teach a kid to not fling boogers at people if it is something you catch them doing, it's just kind of icky, even if you miss.

A LOT of things are that way, society at large does operate on preconceptions(sometimes apt, sometimes not), and if a person doesn't care about their image to an extent they're willing to annoy others, that says a lot about who they are on a fundamental level.

Modern parenting being what it is, I try to give people the benefit of the doubt, but I will offer them advice, otherwise how much of a chance of change is there?  Pretty much zero.

Those that truly can't act like rational humans, yeah, I'll pity and avoid them.  But I won't write anyone who's more simply annoying from ignorance as completely retarded and a bit less than a real human adult, I'll at least give them a chance.

omeganuepsilon: rambling rant


No, I agree with everything you're saying. And I know the reason that you care enough to write a post like that is because you actually sympathize with them and want them to adapt and normalize and be functional members of society.
For me personally, I found this to be frustrating and a waste of time. So I have concluded that I should just let them continue along their doomed path and quietly shun them.

I think you're both farking crazy.

Please, reuse these rants on the Super Bowl thread, where grown men are obsessing over a child's game, and at least one city will riot and loot and destroy shiat because 12 steroid freaks moved a handegg 100 yards down the field the most times. The arguments will still fit just as well.

In fact, they fit any obsessive fandom of anything. To limit it to Bronies is stupid.

And in my opinion you deserve to know that most of us don't care that you are creeped out. We're bronies, we're not stupid, of course we know that watching a show for little girls is socially unacceptable, and that this will creep some people out. But why should we care? We believe that we should be free to watch, discuss and geek out over any show we want. If we let you dictate our actions we would be unhappy, therefore your opinion has been ignored. I felt you should know that.

Oh look, a socially awkward nerd who posts on Fark whining about other socially awkward nerds who like a cartoon.

Sorry, bud, but you just posting on Fark means that you are not and never will be one of the cool kids, so why don't you just get over your lingering social trauma and move on?  People who obsess on hating the bronies are actually far more pathetic than the bronies themselves.  And sadly, you guys never see it....

There's some overlap, but your HUGE generalization is like me saying all sports fans are 400 pound pedophiles.

Which word are we questioning here?
 
2013-01-31 01:26:00 AM
The "furry" crowd is rarely so organized, outspoken and venomous. The way I would see it is, most people who are attractive are so because they worked for it, just like most people who are successful. This does not mean that exceptional people always earned it, but with work anyone can be above average.

Bronies hate work more then they hate anything else, and sexuality takes work. They have constructed an ideology that defines you based on feelings and birth, ironically type casting you based on race and sex to a greater extent then normal society. They do this because if your value may be measured by birth and by how you feel, then you don't need to work to obtain value; it's preordained.

And so, they can choose to be lazy, ugly slobs and say you must not only respect them for their choices, but respect them more then others because they were born a certain way. They have constructed their own twisted noble class, where your value is based on your "privilege level" and you can't change this with work or character.

That is the ultimate goal of a Brony, to say they are awesome without having to earn it. To say they deserve respect without doing anything worthy of respecting. They do this all in the name of "social justice". They have become so horribly convinced of their own nobility, that when some one disagrees, they have only one recourse. They never worked to develop their ideas, and they never put in the effort to become intelligent, so the best they can come up with is stamping their feet, throwing a temper tantrum, and screaming to the hills "WHY DON'T YOU SEE HOW RIGHT I AM YOU shiatLORD!".

And yet, because of all this pathological ideology, they still can't fulfill one of their basic needs. None of them can convince people that a "noble degenerate" is sexy. So they don't get sex, because no matter how much you argue, you can't change what the body wants.

So you end up with a sex deprived, angry degenerate with a god complex and a online peer group that reinforces the fantasy land it lives in.

I'm not sure what bronies you have been talking too but the existence of Derpibooru casts doubt on your theory. There are a lot of bronies who are engaged in artistic endeavors because of the show. Therefore they know first hand that hard work can improve your skills, they can see the improvement in their own art. Also whenever Equestria Daily holds an art workshop there are always tons of people applying, because they wish to improve their art.

My own experience has been a little bit different. I'm actually fairly attractive when I want to be. If I wanted a girlfriend I could find one with a little effort. The problem is, I'm not particularly interested in getting a girlfriend. Apparently this is pretty common among those majoring in a STEM field. I have so much on my plate already that I just don't have the time to devote to a serious relationship, and sex outside of a serious relationship would just be awkward.

A brony was walking home from work one day when he saw a cardboard box containing a little pony. The pony smiled up at him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess." He bent over, picked up the box containing the pony, and took it home.

The pony spoke up and and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will tell everyone how smart and brave you are and how you are my hero" The brony took the pony out of the box, smiled at it, and let it rest on a nice warm rackmounted server.

The pony spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will be your loving companion for an entire week." The brony took the pony out of the server room, smiled at it, and carried it to his workstation.

The pony then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you for a year and do ANYTHING you want. Even that Rule 34 stuff." The brony took the pony off the desk, smiled at it, and put it onto his monitor.

Finally, the pony asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess, that I'll stay with you for a year and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"

The brony said, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, so that makes a talking pony about 20% cooler."

I think his point is more that if G.I. Joe got a fanbase that called themselves "G.I. Janes," you'd expect those fans to be chicks.

His logic doesn't quite hold up, though.  Article 22 of the Bro Code: There is no law that prohibits a woman from being a Bro.
