I will try to respond to that respectfully.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a TV show. Like any TV show, some people like it and others don't. Bronies are often more zealous fans because real or perceived disapproval from society puts rule 19 into effect.

The vast majority of pony posts aren't funny and have no point, I agree. I have yet to have any solid ideas on why this happens, but I think it has something to do with the over-zealousness that I previously explained.

Funnyjunk is NOT being overridden by ponies. This is a common misconception. Depending on what time one checks, pony posts make up at the very most maybe 10% of newest content.

What is true is the existence of the so-called "pony belt" on the third through fifth highest rated pages. The pony belt is caused by thumbing up purely based off whether something contains ponies or not, which is again caused by the over-zealousness as well as a perceived need to balance out the haters. Though the hater point is sort of valid, many haters wouldn't thumb all pony posts down if they knew bronies wouldn't thumb all pony posts up.

My last point is that bronies are not gay. Though MLP:FiM is indeed a very feminine show, watching it does not mean that one is gay. Homosexuality is when one has sexual attractions to one's own sex, and watching a show for little girls has nothing to do with your sexual preferences.

he's posting that link on every pony post.
thinking that by wasting his time telling us we're gay for watching ponies, he's gonna get somewhere in life.
