Remember that for this fandom to start, some people, for some reason, somehow, somewhere, watched this children's program. Why this abominable event would ever occur at any time ever, only god knows why. But /co/ quickly latched on to the show, creating thread after thread of fanart and fanfiction, to the vast and unending dismay of everyone else. A few weeks later, this cancer has found its way to /b/. But /b/ sucked ass already. As thus, it's just the oldfags whining about /b/ again.
The pony HIV was started when the five original Ponyfags (Fluttershy, age 16, Applejack, age 22, Pinkiepie, age 20, Rainbowdash, age 23, and Big Mcln, age 14) had a private conversation, and decided to post a pony thread on /b/, as a raid from /co/. Big Mcln posted all of this evidence on May 17th. He also said that he thought that " ****** gone WAAY to far". All of this info can be seen in the screen-cap to the right.
Known as bronies, these grown men like to post pictures of neon colored ponies and gush about their favorite characters and episodes. Focusing more on the show itself than its intended audience, these threads are always full of fail. Some argue that these threads are just a very elaborate way to piss off half of /b/, while others are sure that these threads are created for non-ironic reasons.

Either way, as of February 2011, there can be at least one of these threads found on the front page at any time, with a group of ponyfags wanting to be the little girl. As the threads quickly reach their image limit and get reposted, it may appear that the pony threads are popular on /b/ and have a large following. This is not the case, in reality it is the same group of tripfags and a few Anonymous posters keeping solely in their own pony threads.
While normal people on /b/ have multiple threads open that they actively lurk or post in, this group of MLP fans dedicate all their time and posts to the "official" MLP thread. In conjunction with the idiot chemo bombers (see below), these threads are guaranteed to stay on page 0 most of the time. In response, other /b/tards spam these threads with endless gore and CP. Which they do richly deserve.
Some believe pony threads are a large source of original content, while in reality most of it is old recycled /b/ memes with screencaps from the show that don't really fit. (encyclopedia dramatica)

For any of you who wants to see the screen capped evidence of big mcln's word and the fandom and what not.

I didn't think I'd like it so I watched it so I could tell people I didn't like it, instead of being one of those ***** who says he doesn't like something even though he knows jack **** about it.

Then, I liked it. So **** you.

mfw you think that no one on this sight has their own free will to choose what they like and they just copy others

you seem to be misunderstood, most people ACTUALLY enjoy watching the show, myself being one of them, and it just took FJ, or ******* 4chan, to push us to watch one episode, and we were then hooked

It's not something you "bandwagon" in on. It's something you want to avoid bandwagoning in on, because people like you think it makes people like us look like faggots.

You think we WANT to like a show made "for little girls", openly? We didn't choose to like it, or to bandwagon in on it. Like I said, I watched it so I could put that **** down, then got sucked in myself.

Either you like something popular and are just as much of a bandwagoner faggot, or you purposefully don't like anything popular and you're a hipster cunt.

I'm not mad you don't like ponies or people who like ponies. I just feel bad that you're such a faggot and you don't even realize what a faggot you are.

c'mon bruh if its a cartoon then why are you arguing with bronies. I mean your kind of being hypocritical. and if you love arguing with them then why do you want the fandom to stop. Wouldn't you want to keep it going for the lulz?
#542 to #531 - anon (02/24/2012) [-]
If you don't like something because you choose not to like it, rather than knowing what you like and what you dislike because you're not a pretentious, hipster cunt, are you anything BUT a pretentious, hipster cunt?

And all you can say is that we're stupid, which is not an argument.

Thank you, have a ********** day. :)

What is this 'meme' called used in the picture?

It's annoying as hell

BTW you are wrong

It appears you are misinformed on the origin of bronyism, sir. The viewership of the show first came from /co/, which WAS originally intended to make fun of the show and its fans. However, some of those who watched truly liked it for the impressive animation style and well developed characters. Afterwards, it spread to /b/, where it was a joke for some and an interest for others. Though /b/ is a place where many memes are created and from which are spread, the 'MLP craze' was not one of them. It appears that /b/ actually copied /co/.

^^This spout of ******** brought to you by the guy who thinks it's actually a better calling to argue with ponyfags than it is to be one.

Well, good for /b/. They trolled me, woohoo. But at the same time, they *ahem* "started" a craze that they couldn't contain. Yes, /b/ blew up MLP to something large. But, it's become a great community of people that really care about each other. I first learned about the show from Know Your Meme, back when it wasn't a part of the Cheezburger Network. I watched the first episode from an experimental viewpoint. And I enjoyed it. I've continued watching the show since then. I don't care if I've been trolled into liking it. I don't care about being cool or popular on the internet. I'll do what I please.

/b/'s "joke" helped me find something outside of my normal interests that I personally enjoy. I'm doing it to fit in; I'm not doing it to be 'cool', because I know I'm not. I've never been and probably will continue to be so.

My girlfriend is also a brony, and she's the smartest, prettiest girl I've dated. But you wouldn't be intelligent enough to be jealous.

Might as well have fun along the way, then.

You're partialy correct. It didn't start on 4chan, but it was 4chan that came up with the term /b/rony.
