In my Opinion there are 3 things that need to be true to be called a brony. or at least for me to consider you a brony
- You Have to watch the show. even 2 episodes is enough, just give it a try at least. it is the core for this fandom we love and knowing a bit about it is important. some bronies “are in it for the music/art” and that is cool but that doesn’t by itself make you a brony. A fan yes, but not necessarily a brony. that said just watching the show doesn’t make you a brony
- You have to interact with the community POSITIVELY in some way.(No! Trolling doesn’t count be it bronies or non bronies.) reading fanfics, listening to music, viewing fanart is cool but not enough comment on it, say which songs, stories or pictures you like, refer others to music, art, animations, fics sites that you think they would like. Make friends or at least be friendly to others. friendship is magic after all right?
- You are not doing in the fandom just for the attention or to be ironic. Nobody likes it when other people co-opt what they like for attention or for no other reason then it is cool to be X now. If you need convincing, just take a look at the social battle in gamer culture about the label of “gamer” and if it should be applied to “casual gamers” or, more broadly, what went on with fashion trends a while back. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXRxzh22oAg this explains it better then i can). In short, like and enjoy the show, like and enjoy the fandom or its parts, or best yet like all of it. But don’t get into the fandom if you are here just to act out or get attention or because ”it is hipster”. It just makes everyone involved look cheap.
I plan on getting my ponified self’s cutiemark tattooed on my hip. When i mentioned this to my family and even a few of my friends they said that it was a foolish idea.
Strangely enough I think what makes me angry about their response isn’t that they think it is a foolish idea. It is that is feels like they don’t know what getting a tattoo really represents for those that don’t get tattooed to “get inked” or what a Cutie mark really means and represents.
Have you ever followed someone on tumblr because of a reblog they made that you like and saw some other posts or comments that you like reblogged by another blog and hastily click the follow button because you are in a hurry. Then actually take time to look at the blog and realize that a lot of things gets posted on there that you wouldn’t want your friends to see?
I made a draw blog that i’ll post to whenever I am doodling.

im sorry if you think because women are “pampered” we’re not oppressed. id trade having equal rights, pay, social standing, and not be a second class fucking citizen over having someone lift a heavy box for me any day.
oh and patriarchy, the thing that works entirely in your favor, is whats perpetuating the weak helpless female stereotype so if ur so butthurt about opening doors and lifting heavy objects then get rid of the fucking patriarchy you impossible piece of shit.
ps. a disney movie about 20th century france. accurate and reliable source.
If you are a woman living in the Western World and you still have this attitude then you obviously don’t know how well you have it. Women have equal rights, pay and social standing, and trust me, we aren’t treated like second class citizens. Get rid of your bloody victim complex and acknowledge your privileges.
This Patriarchy that you are convinced exists, is utter bullshit. If you lived in a Patriarchy, you would not have the same right, let alone more privileges then your “oppressors”. I know hundreds of men out there who would glad get rid of the draft, high suicide rate, and disposability in a society which passes of hours of expected back-breaking labour and increased chances of dying from stress young, is passed off as ‘lifting heavy objects’ in favour of having a stranger whistle at them.
Ohh, I’m sorry if that me being insensitive? You poor, unfortunate, under-privileged children.
p.s. The picture was pointing out that the first feminists were higher-class women with high social standing who fought only for women of their class, not all women.
Yes it is other Sonofthenet.
