I had the idea for this stamp recently, but I thought about not making it since bronies are starting to become irrelevant in popular culture. But since some brony on Youtube decided to resurrect one of my years-old comments on the subject, I figured I'd make it anyway.
I've said this before, but if you're new here, yes I draw MLP art and I like the show. But I'm not a brony. Why? Because I like ALL the generations, including and especially G3, which bronies love to rabidly hate at every given opportunity.
It's pretty much an unwritten rule of being a brony, that despite "love and tolerate" which was once the motto of the fandom, G4 is the superior generation and all the other generations are trash, ESPECIALLY G3. You might as well say the new motto of the fandom is "KILL IT WITH FIRE NOW!!!11!!1!1ONEONE111".
This is the main reason why I stopped calling myself a brony long ago, and why I refuse to associate myself with the official fandom group.
Reason #2: I should also note that I stopped really caring for the FiM show after Season 3. I still watch it just to keep up with it and see what they do with it, but I have really liked very few episodes from Season 3 on. It's honestly obvious that they're milking the show now and dragging it on for far longer than it should have.
If I had done it, I would have taken Season 3 (which had half as many episodes in it), take the few good episodes from the entirety of seasons 4+, let the CMC get their cutie marks, let Rainbow Dash get into the Wonderbolts Academy, let Rarity get her boutique, basically let all the characters complete their arcs, and finally, make Twilight a princess and do it RIGHT. Make it a two-parter episode and give it actual development instead of BOOM this happens, BOOM that happens, BOOM Twilight is a princess now. And with that, end the series and end it on a good note.
So TL;DR, I'm not a Brony because I actually love G3 and I respect, appreciate, and give credit to ALL generations, and to top it all off I'm just not that into the show anymore. The end.
i've been saying that i'm not a brony/pegasister i'm a mlp fan and have been since G1.
also i hate the cutie mark crusaders cutie marks thay are so half assed. should have used the G3 marks for scootaloo and sweetiebelle and make one up for applebloom.
Most of my info about the MLP franchise was the merchandise, well, info-mercials. Infomercials would technically be part of my childhood...while confessing I never grew up to be a dedicated watcher of any show. Just a casual/an ordinary at best...
and of course g1 is perfect and i FUCKING LOVE IT to death. has better toys than any other gen tbh
That said, I do realize that there are decent, kind and open-minded bronies out there, having met a handful of them, it's just that most of my experiences with that portion of MLP fandom have been...very unpleasant.
I'd say it's best to try to stay with the good parts and stay away from the bad parts if you can and call them out on it (plus unfortunately the whole "love and tolerate thing" is dead).
