I think I’m gonna stay in this forum for a bit, cause verbose has presented a interesting video that hits the grey area between media slander and acceptance. And I haven’t been on pony boards in a while, so I got a lot to say.
Bad? A little. These are defiantly some less common bronys, I was actually somewhat happy because at least he didn’t “Howard Stern” it. With previous videos held up to this one, this isn’t that bad.
Sure, I want to media to change. But they wouldn’t make a profit if they ever had a “Casual” brony on.
Overall, everyone else kinda nailed the point, especially random. I personally have stopped being angry at these videos. Someone who judges me based on the show I watch realizes very quickly I’m not the brony that media shows.
The reality of what many people think is much more kind hearted than what medias been going off with. So I don’t see why some bronies are still moaning. The only difference from that kid I posted earlier and howard stern is that stern has a fan base.
This next points a stretch but I can actually see something positive coming from a bad public image of bronys. When someone finds out how cool it is, it only makes them more passionate about joining the fandom. And that means more fan art, storys and videos. Think about it, fandoms that go through more adversity are more deveopled.
In the end, I don’t think people will change there minds about bronys from videos like this. Some people think we’re weird, there is people like that for every subculture, and some people might find out about true/casual bronys from there first impressions, via videos like this.
Although this whole post is a lot of jumbly logic, I believe this is the path bronys must take for the sake of the fandom.
