For those who don’t know, Bronies–portmanteau of “bro” plus “pony”–are adult male fans of the children’s show “My little pony, friendship is magic.”
If the title of the show wasn’t a clue, the show is aimed at young girls. It has a lot of colour, it stars an almost all-girl cast and of course, ponies! Although it does have adult appeal with an intentionally more sophisticated subtext to it’s plot and character interactions.
Despite this, Bronies have been called pedophiles, fags and creeps.
Whatever men like, society seems to have an epithet to hurl at them for liking it. If it’s feminine, then they’re fags and pedos; if it’s masculine then they’re wife beating rapist neanderthals.
It’s almost like men don’t have a right… to their own time.
