Alright guys, I really need to speak out right now, I'm not speaking for the Bronies by any means, but the rabid behavior needs to stop. Mainly, this is concerned due to some people acting completely disrespectful towards the 11 year old Brony than tried to hang himself. I've seen people saying, "Oh if he weren't a male Brony, no one would give a shit." Look, I know Bronies are horrid, but that doesn't give you the excuse to discourage the fact that this kid nearly took his life because of some bullies making fun of him for liking MLP. Hell, I came across another incident like this a few weeks ago, when people were being absolutely disrespectful toward a pony artists death. Whether someone tried to kill themselves or actually died because they were sick... you do not make fun of them regardless of what they like. I've had to remove and ban quite a few members because of these incidents. I've been getting notes from some very upset people because of some of the member's actions. I do not want to be held responsible for your doings.

And yes, I know some Bronies bullied a girl and broke her arm, I'm not saying it's any less bad than what I mentioned. It's all very bad and serious. I don't want this group going the route of MLP-is-crap. I would like for this group to stay up for its intended purpose of laughing at rabid bronies/haters and sharing parody art with people that share a common dislike, whether it be the show, the fanbase, or both. I mean I don't like both, but it's not that the group is against the show. We're all here for laughs, sharing art, and hopefully making friends among some of the members here.
Now, please... can we not give this group a bad reputation?

Message from Joosh-Face concerning the suicide attempt of the 11 year old brony: Would you be so harsh if he wasn't a brony? What if he was getting bullied for liking a different show, like say, Adventure Time? What if instead, he was getting bullied by bronies for not liking MLP? Way I see it, doesn't matter what someone's interests are, no one should be pushed into suicide.

Oh wait, you aren't a stupid group against the show - sorry about that last thing I posted.

Still, this group SHOULD NOT EXIST!

First off:
1.It exists for a reason
2.This group is against the fantards that take the show WAY too seriously.
3.It's not against all bronies,only the rabid ones that shove ponies into everyones face.

"THIS GROUP SHOULD NOT EXIST."

Go tell that to every other anti-group on dA. Not just the MLP ones, every single anti-group on dA. :meow:

My problem with this whole mess is the fact we're calling this kid a "brony" in the first place.

There is the most obvious cause and problem in the whole mess. The fact that everyone is differentiate themselves from normal people.
Don't get me wrong, we're all fans of something but when we start coining them like false idols people are going to tend to view others differently because how they or other have made to stand out.

Honestly people complain about sonic fandom but when honestly was the last time you saw Sonic fanshit all over non-related places on a consistent basis? Or Trekies? Or Star Wars? Or any other popuplar fandom? Because i'll be honest, not one of those have ever been drilled into anything as hard as MLP and people are sick of it.
I'd even go so far as to say this is probably how Atheist few Religion in general.

People hate differences, I mean history has shown we would kill people just over skin color. You really think people are any better off now as back then?
Though I feel pity that the kid went that far. And shame for the parents who were ignorant of the whole thing.

When will you people stop trying prove you're different when we're all the same anyway? Because not a single person in this thread, this internet, this existence and in any point in time will ever be...different.

Now stop calling yourselves bronies. It's fucking stupid.

I'm not condoning bullying or suicide, but I don't understand something here really.
I don't care what it's over, I also don't care the person's age. All of this is irrelevant.

My problem is from both ends... actually 3 ends. Someone likes a show/game/movie/toy/person... okay? Why the fuck bullies or ANYONE for that matter bloody care? That's the part I never understood with people. I mean I would understand if the person maybe was annoying and shoving things down your face like the Rabid Fans of ANYTHING out there.
You like MLP? Good, just don't overdo it. COD? Same thing. Anime? Same. Foods? Same thing!

The next problem would have to be the kid. Now I'm not really pissed off at him, but these days there should be many ways to somehow contact someone when this shit is happening. Parents? Friends? Anyone? I understand the whole "Don't snitch" crap, but really now. I hope whoever stopped him (I'm guessing they did seeing as you said attempt and not that he succeeded) give them a good long talk and let them know what he did and what he could do in the future before it even get that far again.
If I were to care about age, then I would let it slide over this suicide attempt as I would say he's inexperience in life. If he was much much older I would question his actions a bit more.

Now the next problem is everyone else in the situation as not everyone can be the victim and/or the bully. Mind you, I don't know much about the story other than what I'm reading here as I was not around when this mess occurred, but how did it get so far that the kid wanted to kill themselves? Was no one helping/defending the kid?
