I like the series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Whether or not this makes me a brony is debatable, but not the point of this journal entry. As the title stats, this is me wondering if anti-bronies are misguided hateful people.
Please understand this: I'm not claiming all anti-bronies are misguided and/or hateful. However, if you hate bronies simply because they watch the show or something akin to that, then your hatred is shallow at best.
If you hate bronies for shoving the show (and whatnot) down your throats (metaphorically), then I can understand your hatred. However, instead of hating the fandom as a whole, simply hate those who are being horrible.
There are many fandoms in this world. I doubt any are truly peaceful. Somehow, in some way, there will be extremists who ruin the name of their respective fandom/s. MLP is no exception.
Lastly, for those that believe bronies are pedophiles and/or manchildren, I've got three words for you: You are wrong.
Being a fan of this series and being either or both may be a coincidence. Not all bronies are pedophiles and/or manchildren. Bronies can be civil and mature. Of course, if you truly doubt this, then you may be simply ignoring the facts to satify your own opinion. Being closed minded will not solve anything. It will only make things worse for both sides.
Thanks for reading this (I assume). If you want to leave a comment, please do. But be warned: I will not tolerate hate-speech and/or needless profanity. The latter includes those who agree with this journal post. Please keep comments clean. It might be a small step to making attitudes as a whole more positive... but I doubt it.
