Brony FAQs & Facts

  • Q: What's the story behind this site?

A: I'm just a random individual who happens to be a brony. I noticed that a simple explanation for the brony fandom which could be linked to with an easy-to-remember URL was lacking, so I decided to put something together myself.

  • Q: But...why?!

A: It's just a fun cartoon. There's really not much more to it. Sure, the brony fandom is kind of a fluke which required a perfect storm of events to occur for it to become what it is today...but when it all comes down to it we're just another fandom for just another show. If you're not into cartoons, that's fine.

  • Q: I'm writing about bronies, how can I use this site as a citation?

A: Unless you're able to cite the URL or my username, I'm afraid I can't help you. I don't go by my real name online for a number of reasons. Take a look at the bottom of the home page for other articles you may be able to use.

  • Q: Why do bronies have to "ponify" everything?

A: Some people are annoyed to find that their favorite franchises or interests have been ponified in some way. Some see it as an invasion from something they don't like of something they do. The truth is, bronies are just normal people with many different interests. When we combine our interests, it often involves crossovers much like any other fandom might. It's not an attack on your interests, but rather we just want to share them with you!

  • Q: I watched some of the show, it's just as "girly" as I thought it would be! What gives?

A: My Little Pony is and always was made for young girls, it just so happens that it's made well enough for many older fans to enjoy it too. It's only very recently that the franchise has started to become more gender neutral at all. The unexpected "badass" moments of the show are not what My Little Pony is about, so if you watch a typical episode and find it rather slow that's fine. This is a show about cute cartoon characters and their day-to-day lives; It's not for everyone. Also, you can be a brony without loving every episode. Just ask any brony what their least-favorite episode is and chances are they can spend hours telling you all about it.
