bronies by gastlies bronies by gastlies
Women who like "masculine" things are mocked and jeered at, accused of not being "real" fans and of being "attention whores" (or, sometimes, just "whores").

Men who like "feminine" things are given a documentary praising them for their "progressive" views and feel such a large amount of self-importance that they claim they're "oppressed" by women who are (often rightfully) scared of them.

I've never seen a more misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic, and violent fandom than the one grown men have created around a show about multicoloured horses. There have been several times when I've been sexually harassed by self-professed bronies (all of them were over the age of eighteen when I am clearly a minor), who then have the nerve to say that people (especially young women) are being "sexist" for fearing them or for feeling uncomfortable because of their presence.

I'm all for breaking down gender roles, but bronies are definitely not doing that properly (if at all). Bronies: you are not oppressed. You are not progressive. You're assholes. You're -- as the title says -- entitled pricks.

(Also, not every MLP fan is a brony, and yes, I know that not all bronies are like that.)

MLP, Homestuck, Vocaloid and Kingdom Hearts are pretty rabid fanbases xD I think it's anything with several main characters, or stereotyped personalities so that they're easy to imitate in fanfiction or fanart.
People who would rather be anyone but themselves can become so obnoxious when given the opportunity to be someone else, you know?

There are lots of good bronies and shit imo, and the show is good. But as a whole they're fucking pricks.

If you say that not all bronies are like that then why make a stamp with such a generalization?

Homophobia, misogyny, and especially cissexism are apparent in all fandoms, and most definitely not 'most commonly' in guys who like girly shows.
Also, male femininity is most definitely not more accepted than masculinity in females- in any way shape or form. I've been harassed and assaulted many times for being read as feminine or wearing pink/feminine attire while going into men's restrooms/most public areas. My sister and female friends have seldom been bothered for wearing suits, ties and other traditionally masculine clothes. I can tell you for a fact that I'm treated far nicer when mistaken for a female, too. I'm also a minor, and I've still been harassed far more by macho men that are into transformers. TLDR; you'd find that there are an equal amount of assholes in every group if you've been around enough people. Stop beating dead horses, please.

Your experience =/= the majority.  Down here women are treated like shit, no matter how they present, and men are worshipped for being men and it's disgusting.

You are such a fucking idiot. I do not even have time to tell you how much of an idiot you are. I will come back later.

By acting angry and cursing so much you're just making them seem correct.
OP is stupid, anyway; male feminism is FAR less tolerated than female masculinity in current society.
Don't give idiots attention, please.

It means penis, essentially.
