Re: 11 Yo "Brony" Attempts Suicide After Being Bullied for Liking "My Little Po

Here is a psychological study done about Bronies.

http://www.bronystudy.com/id1.html

And the final conclusions for those who don't which to read the whole report from the study itself:

1) While the Brony Fan Community represents a diverse group of individuals, several factors appear to explain some of the variation/ diversity in the fans interests and behaviors:
a) Personality traits – especially Extraversion, Absorption, Agreeableness and Conscientious. These differences may be most important in helping us understand the motivation for and function of Brony behavior.
b) The openness of individual Bronies social situations (family, friends, community) to interests (like MLP:FiM) that are different and unique. These differences may be most important in helping us understanding the safety needs of the Secret and Hidden Bronies.
c) The resources and connect ability of the Internet. The very existence of the Brony Fan Community would appear to be predicated (dependent upon) the “connectedness” provided by the internet. There very likely would be no Brony Community without it!

2) How is the Brony Community like other “Avid Fan” groups?
a) It serves a Social function (for most Bronies) of connecting them with other fans outside of their geographic location. (This varies based upon their openness to telling others)
b) It serves as an activity that the fan can focus on (maybe a small thing or a central focus) that provides a sense of meaning to the fans lives (It fills their day and/or gives them a sense of purpose)

3) How is the Brony Fan Community unlike (different from) most other
“Avid Fan” groups?
a) The object of interest (MLP:FiM) is a non-stereotypic interest for the general fan base. Males and adults who like a cartoon associated with a young female population (stereotypic female toy/cartoon). This feature of the fandom likely explains the variety of shocked (It’s a joke… right!) and hostile reactions directed at the Brony community by the “haters” and the “uninformed.” Anyone who does not take the time to look beyond this feature (>>>FOX News<<<) will likely miss the true nature of the community and likely spread misinformation about “who are the Bronies” and what motivates them!
b) MLP presents a highly moral and virtuous message allowing it to serve a Guidance function (for many Bronies). This is likely to be the least recognized feature of the Brony phenomenon, but may also represent one of the Brony Fan Community’s greatest strengths and potential contributions to emerging web based fan communities. If individuals are going to surf the web and interact on social sites, why not on sites and with people who believe and try to live a theme of Love and Tolerance?

We often ask parents the question: “Which would you rather have your teen doing? Watching a group of humorous and highly pro-social (moral) ponies, or playing video games where they beat up, torment, kill and murder other creatures (even if they are zombie, orcs or gang members)? We do realize that many Bronies take part in this video game mayhem; however, it appears that MLP may act as a balancing force in their lives. Please note that the positive guidance aspect of the phenomenon may evoke ridicule and hostility from some individuals (and groups) who feel that religion (sacred scripture) is the ONLY valid source of moral guidance, and that statements like WWPD (What would a pony do?) border on blasphemy.

4) The medium of MLP allows for a great deal of artistic expression and personalization of one’s Brony identity. The Brony Fandom shares this characteristic with numerous other internet fandoms. Being based on an animated cartoon series in the internet age (with video, sound and photo editing program readily available) provides a rich source of material for creative expression. This can be seen in the proliferation of pony video clips, pony music, pony fan fiction, and personalized pony avatars. The more extensive the creative/artistic expression the more likely it is that individual fans will find a niche or place in the community that “speaks to them.”

Due to some people abusing the, "groan," button, it appears it has been removed, other than in the water cooler.

Children must play and don't know when to act accordingly. Some of us know the difference between childish and childlike, and some do not

Well you'll just have to settle for abusing me some other way.

In all seriousness, my post wasn't a 'dumb kid' post. Of course this is horrible, but anyone a little older knows they will be bullied for it. I never said that was right, because it's fucking not.

I'd rather have a kid who plays COD than one who talks to dubious adult men on the internet who like shows about talking animals aimed at girls.

Parents with those viewpoints are what's wrong with kids today. Let's encourage violence and violent video games, but discourage something that teaches a positive message about friendship and tolerance.

Re: 11 Yo "Brony" Attempts Suicide After Being Bullied for Liking "My Little Po

Some bronies are really fucking weird especially the ones into the pony porn stuff.
I just find it weird when adult men are into a show aimed at very young girls. Live and let live or whatever

I feel really bad for this kid though poor kid, so young.

The only way to deal with a piece of shit bully is to instill serious pain.

Re: 11 Yo "Brony" Attempts Suicide After Being Bullied for Liking "My Little Po

Nothing wrong with liking my Little Pony at any age. It doesn't matter what age or gender, you can like whatever you want, even if it's made for kids. A lot of adults still like cartoons, same for me. Nothing wrong with that either. THis "Society", makes us believe how things should be, even though there is no logical reason why.

People can see from a different perspective, and see that not everyone is bad, and there are people who can accept as the way we are. If people judge you, than they are narrow minded bullies, who don't know any better, and they are not worth it.
