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.
