They Got Him: Ron Gilbert is a Brony.

First it was just little girls into My Little Pony; then it was a select group of adults; soon adults who formed conventions; then Andrew W.K; now? Game developers. That's right, Ron Gilbert, the man known for such classic adventure games as Manic Mansion and Monkey Island has joined their ranks. (Culture, Ron Gilbert)

People can watch what ever they want, hell, I catch myself watching an episode of Pokemon or Spongebob every so often, but the primary "bronies" found on the internet are the most sickening creatures I have ever seen. If you watch MLP, more power to you, but if you pile over top fellow 30 year olds in Toys R Us to get the new pony toy, there is something wrong with you.

that's cool. i wonder why so many people hate bronies? i mean, my definition of one is a teen/Adult fan of the show, so i guess that makes me one, but i didn't know liking something that's intended for a certain demographic was so wrong.

Hell, i'm a dude who enjoys musicals, and all my friends and family seem to think i'm fine.

i dunno, i guess i understand being creeped out by the loads of pony R34, but for those of us who aren't in to that weird sh!t, we get hate.

Go to a con. Then you'll understand the hate for Bronies.

Greasy, pimply, lispy mouth breathers that don't understand what personal space is. OH and if ou don't watch the show they throw glitter at u saying to "embrace friendship non believer". It's sickening.

yeah, I've meet a few dudes like that, but at cons, they seem pretty normal and cool, for the most part. I've even met bronies in the military, and even a NASA employee.

i think pretty much EVERY big fanbase has its share of "Odd" ones, but the fans of many fandoms can be great people.

i did a bit of reading and found out that a lot of bronies have made MASSIVE donations to different charities, and even saved a few lives.

I personally believe that if you look at the bright side of any fanbase, you'll take a liking to them easier :P

you just described a fanboy, someone that makes his life objective to revere some object/character/brand.

all cons is full of these guys, they are not exclusive to MLP.
