This is the first version:



Many people talked about the text being too small and I thought it was pretty crowded and scattered (though I still think it was a good first attempt). So to make a better poster, I condensed the crap out of it, both in text and in images to make essentially the same points but with less space, more pictures, and fewer words. I also uploaded a MUCH larger version so you guys can print your own though I DO have it available as prints over at Redbubble:

Buy it here if you like it :)
POSTER @ REDBUBBLE: [link]

Anyway, I think it turned out really well so what do you think?

EDIT: Cheeseheads are Green Bay Packers fans (football) and the Blue Army are fans of Aerosmith

EDIT2: A lot of people today have commented that they can't believe that anyone would consider KH girly, but it's been more than a decade since it came out so many people forgot or were too young to remember. It's a "Disney Princess" game that uses the word "heart" a lot and has touchy feely "I LOVE YOU MAN" bromance between the main characters. Obviously it's awesome, but I've seen guys who couldn't get past that and wouldn't play the game.

I'm not sure if i really want to turn into one. But, I really kind of like this show, and I drew Fluttershy, Applebloom and Pinkie.

Also, Fav for including Ord from DT. lol

I like how you got what looks to be lia maria johnson as your example girl (she's from the react channel).

and you sum up todays pop culture and gender dilemma up rather nicely, hopefully we can all learn something from this. :)

While mostly true, I belive that MLP fandom has done something, that SHOULDN'T HAVE EVER happened. It became infested with internet. As in: stupidity, perversion, etc. There are few things that should be clean, and MLP is one of them. But, as you said, internet rules can do ANYTHING, unfortunatly. If you want to prove me othervise, firstly think, can you find a brony(aside from myself) that rejects lesbian(gay), gore and sexualizing of ponies. The anwser: absolute majority will say it's OK...

What MLP WAS: an interesting cartoon with morals, peppered with allusions for things kids wouldn't understand.
What MLP IS: a dump of fan ideas that creators just pushed onto the show(and not all ideas innocent to...).

I designed the video to be a way for people to explain why bronies are not a big deal so you can use it TO tell them if you wish. However you proceed, I hope you find the video helpful :)

Great job overall, but I think you could have picked better examples than Twilight and Justin Bieber. since even girls get ridiculed for liking those nowadays. Thank you very much for making this though.

Those who use pony porn aren't Bronies, anyway.

I think you can be a fan and into sexualization... it's just that I personally don't want to see my beloved characters in that way. So much of what I love about the pony world is the innocence and kindness of it all so for me they don't mix. But that doesn't mean that someone who feels differently shouldn't count as a fan at all.

Oh, they're still a fan! Just not the right kind of one.

That's quite an opinion you have there, Sucked if anyone said anything to counter your point of view.

I'm a Brony, And if you wish to see me not as one. So be it.

I'm proud to be a Clopper and guess what, I'm the broniest of Bronies.

AAAARGH! Holy crud, I managed to suppress those memories, and you've brought them back out in one fell swoop! Unbelievable! You know how long it's going to take for me to repress them again? Even I don't know. Agh! Headache New
