Non-Bronified Stamp by Reitanna-Seishin Non-Bronified Stamp by Reitanna-Seishin
I FINALLY came up with a term to describe us! this stamp is for people like me who are fans of MLP, but do not classify ourselves under the term "brony." there is a difference, albeit small, or in some cases people just don't want to associate themselves with the title. whatever flies your zeppelin. I am rather tired of being called a brony just because people don't get that not ALL fans are bronies.

you may use this stamp, you don't have to ask, just link back to me if people ask where you got it. I know it's not the most exciting stamp in the world, it took like a minute to make.




and don't give me a reason to disable comments.

I quite like this stamp, and I like the phrase in it.
Sadly I dabbled in the Brony fandom so heavily for so long that I began to see just how cancerous the fans could really be to each other.
But I felt a little bad for throwing them under the bus because I still enjoyed the show and still know much chiller and saner fans of the show.
I guess I could say this sums up what I consider myself now after I dropped the show for a full year and them came back to it.

I usually call myself a Brony, but sometime later on I feel like I'm not. For I haven't been real serious about watching the episodes, for I never have any spare time to do so. The other reason is that, not only I'm in the MLP Fandom, but I'm also in other fandoms too, like Anime, Furry, Creepypasta, Ponypasta, etc. When I heard about this term, I now usually considered that too myself for now

I consider myself a combo of this. While I'm a fan of the show and watch it traditionally and in my spare time, I also read more fan stories (usually edgy, dark ones) around the time. Cupcakes is actually the first reason I know this show.

.... This stamp is kinda sad... Like... It makes it sound like it's bad to be a Brony. Like, I get it.. there's a difference between liking it and labeling yourself. It's the same as Furry, but things like this make it sound like being proud to be a brony is bad.

well, unfortunately a lot of bronies have made it seem that way, same with furries. there are things that fans like me don't want to get mixed up with, so we're not bronies

To be honest a lot of the bad things associated with both I'd chalk up more to people who are anti-it. Like the sexual side of it(both)... I've seen far more Bronies shun 'cloppers' then support it, but if you say you're a Brony most people will automatically assume you wanna screw a horse. Or if you're a furry you wanna dress up in a fursuit and have an orgy. It's kinda sad people haven't distinguished the differences. Every fandom has good and bad people in it and it's just kinda sad that with this one it seems like the bad has been artificially inflated to a point you can't even call yourself the term that is commonly used to describe being a fan of it (Such as Whovian for Doctor Who fans) without getting an unfair bias.

I get why you'd not call yourself a Brony (I don't either but that's mainly because I'm not 'that' interested in it. I just idly like it and some of the works that come out of it) but it's sad that it's hit that point from both stupid people in the fandom and out of it. Because all things considered Brony is supposed to just be the term to describe being part of the fandom just like Whovian or Potterhead (or whatever it is) ext. But the internet has incorrectly changed it to something bad.

well the internet has also incorrectly changed the term to include women too. now don't get me wrong, I am anti-feminism (the bad kind,) so it has nothing to do with men being men and women being women. it's the fact that the term "brony" was originally meant to describe fans of the show that were exclusively male, usually older men. I do not know how or why girl fans suddenly call themselves bronies, but I have to admit it bugs me because it makes me feel like men aren't allowed to have their own thing. but ever since I got accused of being a feminist by having such opinions, I've just raised my hands in defeat and attempted to let it go.

Personally, being 'female', I would rather be called brony then pegasister if I were to label myself as that big of fan. I think part of the reason female fans call themselves brony is because it's kinda unfair to segregate like that... it feels like just because the person is female, it makes them less of a fan - a term that had to be tagged on as second thought. You're totally right on where the term was originally coined, and I can see if you're a purist and want to keep it that way in your personal dictionary but that one change, I think, is for the better and a step in the right direction for that sorta thing.
Of course, my viewpoint may be scewed compared to others and I don't really know other female's reasoning...  I'm not a good example of that since I'm mostly gender neutral and don't label myself either way outside of what sexual reproductive organ I have. In fact is more comfortable being called male on the internet lol So yea I may be a little skewed there.

Anyway.... I'm anti-feminism as well - very very much so. But I'm Pro-TheresNotADamnBitOfDifference. So I don't think women OR men should have exclusive things, to be honest. If everyone were gray blobs you'd not know or care about their gender. I don't think there are, for instance, female or male clothes. There are just... clothes. Besides... can you imagine if ALL fandoms segregated men from women? That'd be ridiculous lol. 

I understand where you're coming from, though.

there's a word for "bad" feminism, and for the life of me I can't remember what it is. it starts with a G. I've always gotten along better with boys because I never said, "go easy on me because I'm a girl." I mean, if you hit a man, you're hitting a person, but if you hit a woman, you're hitting a woman. I'm not saying hitting is okay, but to say it that way doesn't give a sense of equal rights at all. I've never been treated differently for being a woman unless the man didn't know I wasn't going to start a battle of the sexes. it's just like when I tell people I'm a vegetarian. they tense up, just WAITING for the lecture on why they're bad for eating meat. but you know what? they're not going to get that from me, because I'm not THAT kind of vegetarian. I disagree on 90% of PETA's views, and I have not had one friend who was also a vegetarian. my friends and my boyfriend can eat meat all they want, that's their choice. but being a vegetarian, and being a woman, makes people expect you to behave this way, and I hate it. it's all stereotypes. it sucks because a good chunk of people make their stereotypes true, and I wish it did not have to be that way

The prime definition of 'Brony' is a fan of MLP;FiM. Once again, another contradictory stamp I found.

I agree with this stamp. I like the show but I don't consider myself a brony. I'm fine with just being a casual MLP fan.

I never really considered myself a brony anyways, there was one point a more than a few months back when I kind of did but for some reason I still wasn't comfortable with it so I still just think of myself as just a mild fan, I mean, I like a few characters (& some I don't care for), fan comics & I don't care much for the songs on the show

This is me. I really like MLP fan art, comics, and stories (especially gory onpes like Cupcakes and Rose of Life), but I don't really care about the show. I've seen a few episodes, and I like the humor and the animation; but I don't like the show enough to go out of my way to watch it.

for me, it was that I liked cupcakes. I refused to watch the show because I expected it to be like the older generations. then I watched "party of one" where pinkie pie shows her other side, and I was like, "woah, this isn't what I expected." since then, I've watched all the episodes and both movies, but only once each. my main focus is still on my grimdark fanfic

Not sure what you mean by stereotypical brony, I mean, what are brony called in general? o.0?

I think a "stereotypical brony" would be someone who is A) super in-to the show, B) owns a lot of MLP merchandise, AND C) has a sexual interest in the characters, either as they are seen in the show or in an anthropamorphized form.

I am not saying that I think this is what a brony is, I'm saying this is what (I think) the stereotype for a brony is.

Heh, to each their own. I use the term brony with pride, though sadly I'm well aware of how it got dragged through the mud because of a group within the group became such assholes to others. =/ Can't control how people are, we can only hope to correct them (gently) and show the better side of the fandom. But no matter how you identify yourself, as long as you enjoy the show and characters, who cares about the labels. ^.^

I always thought that a brony was just a title, if you want to be called a brony, then that's fine. If you want to be called a pegisister, then that's fine. If you want to be just called a fan, then that's fine.
