The Doctor Who 50th anniversary is the day that My Little Pony season 4 premieres.
…Well…good luck guys
WHEN DOES IT START AGAIN??
When the…time is ripe!
I think it’s weird most of the ponies have names related to their cutie mark, yet it’s canon that they do not receive a cutie mark until they find out what they’re good at. Does that mean that by naming a pony you’re making it so their name is what they’re good at? I know the episode with Cheerilee explaining her cutie mark to Apple Bloom was supposed to address that issue but it didn’t do it too well because every other pony has a cutie mark and name with no ulterior meaning.
Yeah, that is weird isn’t it.
…..What, I’M not gonna explain it
Love and Tolerance: Some bronies live by it, some bronies think it’s stupid.
Some try to make it into a religion, some simply use it to deflect trolls and haters, some practice it unconditionally, perhaps to a fault, and some are very selective, even using it “ironically”.
However you feel about it, the motto of “Love and Tolerance” makes pony fandom strong and resilient in the face of what we must deal with as a group of people considered “strange” and even “creepy” from the outside. As we grow more known, the misconception will grow as well. There will be people seeking to cash in on us by depicting us as some sort of freakshow, who really don’t care what we’re all about.
At this point you might be thinking “Well some bronies Are freaks.” and maybe “Those guys are making us look bad!” Whether it’s the “cloppers”, or the pony spammers shoving MLP in peoples’ faces, or the guys who seem to take the ideals of the show and turn them into some form of “neo-Christianity”, or whoever else, it doesn’t matter. The point is that if we are divided, there is conflict. This is why “Love and Tolerance” is important and makes us stronger.
When you hate on any particular group within our fandom, you don’t really distance yourself from them. What you do instead is make the members of that group feel angry and hurt, and give them a need to defend themselves. A great many people outside of this (or any other) fandom DON’T CARE about the truth. They don’t care that you’re “not one of those creepy, gross bronies” or whatever, they just like having something to hate on and make fun of. That’s just how it is. In fact, as certain members of the fandom become more marginalized and hated upon by other bronies, it actually becomes in their best interest if the fandom is seen as “creepy and gross”. Maybe they’d like to see some of the haters from within the fandom “taken down a peg”. It wouldn’t matter to them, since their own fandom already sees them that way. in fact, it may add to their numbers. If the fandom does decline in this way, the show creators may eventually be forced to cut off interaction with us to protect themselves.
All of this is why love and tolerance are important. This kind of ugliness and conflict is unnecessary and does us only harm. All of us.
It needs to be okay for all of us to participate in this fandom in our own way, because we are all bronies. Pegasisters. Pony fans, if you like. We may strongly, strenuously disagree with the way some of our fellow bronies choose to participate, but the least we can do is be kind and understanding about it. Keep away from the aspects we don’t like or disagree with, but allow others their right to them. Rather than spending time disagreeing with the aspects we don’t like, we can participate in the aspects that we do enjoy all the more strongly, and magnify them until they are the best they can possibly be, and will encourage others to join in them as well. Actually, that’s how our fandom was started.
It’s all our fandom, and if we can’t be good to each other, no one else will. (Not to sound really pretensious, but) Together we are strong, and can overcome anything. Friendship is magic. <3

There will rarely be reblogs here, but when there are, you can be sure it was something special.
I couldn’t help but be moved by this particular entry. There are bronies out there, just like myself, that don’t want to see this community torn apart. We don’t have to agree on everything or like all the same things, people differ in tastes, preferences, and even sense of humor. But that doesn’t mean we can’t get along or enjoy the things that we have in common.
So let’s stick together, love each other whenever we can, tolerate our differences, and keep this community strong.
