why bronies think people hate them: they watch a TV show marketed at little girls
why people actually hate bronies: they sexualize technicolor horses, they’re misogynistic despite the show’s feminist messages, they harass people, they think “coming out of the stable” is a big deal, rape jokes, they make everything about them, do i even need to go on
Why pinkiepony thinks people hate her: she’s (arguably) female and/or a feminist.
Why people actually hate her: she’s a prudish, censorship-happy misandrist who’s just upset that men and boys can break perceived social barriers and admit to enjoying something intended for girls (wasn’t that part of what feminism meant: breaking gender roles?), and she and her insane social justice warriors have left a dividing wound on the fandom that it may never recover from.
PP, whether or not you’re here to contribute or demolish this fandom, as long as you like the show, as long as you remain in touch and interact with the internet, and especially as long as you keep buying their toys, you are a part of this fandom whether you like it or not.
Please be reasonable and cease your drama-queen hate. You are the definition of the dreaded label: “Tumblr feminist.”
P.S. Women can make rape jokes and sexualize technicolour horses too.
