Quote from: Chishio Kunrin on 2015 Jan 28, 03:39:46A lot of people say that a brony is a teenage or adult male who watches MLP:FiM, but personally, I say it's any teenager or adult who watches it.For some reason, people decided that the female teen and adult fans should be called pegasisters, but I don't really feel like having a separate term just for us.Unfortunately, there's a negative stigma attached to the word "brony," for various reasons.1. People tend to react aggressively toward things they don't understand, and a ton of people are having a hard time understanding why men would want to watch MLP. Many people think that any man who watches MLP has something wrong with him. There's nothing wrong with anyone for watching it. It's a genuinely entertaining show.2. There are some bronies out there who do very weird, gross, and/or bad things, and/or who act very rude and annoying. Sadly, there are people who think all bronies are like that.3. There are some bronies out there who try to force other people to try watching MLP. Trying to shove MLP down someone's throat is not the way to go. It just makes them hate us and sometimes even MLP.

Quote from: Chishio Kunrin on 2015 Jan 29, 06:20:39I've heard otaku is sort of an insult in Japan anyway, like how calling someone a nerd used to be an insult.Plus, in western culture, self-identifying as an otaku puts you at risk of being accused of being a weeaboo.I just say "I like anime."
