Bronies, to me, are anybody who likes the show, no matter how much they like it.
False terms. Sane vs Rabid.
People obsess over all sorts of things don't they? I remember when I was younger being completely obsessed with Pokémon. I'd want all the games, I'd watch all the shows, I'd want all the trading cards. I still have many of my trading cards now because they still give me happiness when I can play with them with my friends. Did that make me a rabid Pokémon fan? No.
I think we all could use a bit of child like joy like that in our lives some times. Like when you are gaming or when you are maybe watching a funny YouTube video or whatever, it's nice to have that feeling.
Is it bad to be obsessive over a show you like? For the most part I don't think it is, no, so long as you remember that there are other things that are more important and you prioritise correctly. I think terms like sane and rabid are very unfair and unnecessary. We are not special snowflakes for liking a show, and it would be ridiculous to say otherwise, but we're not bad for it either.
We enjoy colourful sparkly ponies of different shapes and sizes and enjoy the well thought out plots of the shows. Speaking for myself personally I also like Pokémon, Yugioh, Sonic games from Sega Mega Drive, XBOX 360, game console emulators, touch screen computers, fishing rods, trains.
Being a brony is only one aspect of who I am. I think the same holds true of other bronies as well. Now to the actual point of the article which I've probably taken too long to get to. Whatever you like or don't like, we are all individuals. We all like different things.
Be positive about the things you enjoy and support the things you like. Stand up against negativity with maturity and confidence. Spread happiness to artists you admire, join groups related to your interests. Don't let anybody make you think you have to stop liking what you want to like.
Aim high! Boom.

Chrysalis, Luna, Sunset Shimmer, Octavia, Vinyl, Rarity, Discord(can't say HES a pony as such but a it of animal) are my personal favorite characters!
they mabye others but Im adjusting to the idea! I take my life very seriously, and problebly sensible. Sharp solid sort of person who doesn't like 2 judge!
so well I'll think about it! I'll be what I call myself, a
Cyber Brony/ Moderate/ Disaplined and well a Strait Brony(meaning I like the idea just make it personal) or...just Normal
lets just say. I'm a very sensible sort of guy and knows what's right !!
I knew the word brony from one of the PONY.MOVS!
my little pony fan ._.
if MLP FIM is to girly, they would not put insane characters or any characters that resembles one of the adult movies like, "The Big Lebowski" there r forms of bronies but non/anti-bronies spot one form and assumes the rest would do the same. there should be a rights for any age for adult to watch something regardless what it is targeting. other then that. turning shows that we watch like transformers into ponys. well not all of them do that, doing that is call "crossover". I would like to turn one of my favorite bands in anime or turn one of the fictional character into "Legend of Zelda Wind Waker" style. There are bronies that make Fan-Fiction for kids to as long it is not inappropriate. If some kid said to adult bronies like
Kid: adults should not be watching shows that's for kids
Adult bronie: by that logic. Kids should not be watching adult shows.
(because some adult shows would be considering inappropriate)
MLP FIM does not show anything inappropriate.
I have known some people watch shows that were might for boys but yet no issue of it. if girls watch transformers they could turn into a girl story if they want to. why can boys just watch MLP FIM make some interesting stories, music's, movies, fan made episodes that can be interesting to fans of any age.
but some bronies may take the show too far.
if u want to catch a person interest, make a fan art that would surely get their interest of the show but don't force them. I have a friend who is a brony and he made fan arts got me wondering why there are adult male watching it or why is it interested. so pick one episode, (Lesson Zero) got my interested since I have watch anime shows that has insane character with their insane face, (like Yami Marik)
One thing tho, BECAUSE our fandom is open minded and tollerant a lot of people got to join our fandom and are welcomed into it (which is good), but it also means there are people joining the fandom WITHOUT knowing what a brony is and what our values are. to the new bronies and rabids all i can say is this : saying you're a brony is easy, being a brony is something else. the fact you like mlp doesn't make you a brony, so for god's sake, behave.
I'll sometimes call myself a brony. I'm a huge FiM fan and it's the easiest way to say it. I'm also a big fan of the previous gens and a big G3 collector. I'm also a fan of a lot of other things as well and my fandoms are only one part of my life.
