Brony Bull by NOKAPIplz Brony Bull by NOKAPIplz
Yet another reason why I prefer to call myself a casual MLP FIM fan. Many bronies who spout this mantra often don't live up to it. When they say it, I will often assume they mean the opposite. This phrase means nothing to me because it got trampled.

Ever see a picture of a humanized pony? Notice how bronies will attack artists who draw the mane six as anything other than straight, cisgendered, white, skinny females.

No, that's not loving or tolerant to "take a stand against forced diversity". What is "forced diversity" anyway? To them, it's when anyone draws Fluttershy as (for example) of middle eastern descent in a hijab just for fun.

To me, it's when you actively force headcanon onto people. Most of the artists being attacked aren't forcing diversity. They're drawing the ponies as how they imagined them for FUN. Plain and simple FUN. Since there is no canon of what humanized ponies look like, there's no wrong interpretation.

In my conclusion, this whole "forced diversity" thing sounds more like people not wanting to acknowledge the existence of people/cultures/lifestyle/whatever outside of their comfort zone, let alone think of it as a beautiful thing. Unfortunately, I think this xenophobic mindset isn't limited to the series. Worse yet, some bronies act out on this insecurity (I've heard stories of female cosplayers being harassed for having differing opinions or for being overweight).

So much for "love and tolerate".

Oh, and I don't care if any rabid bronies come raging, it's just more lulz and ammo for me.

Personally, I see love and tolerance as a means of us reaching out to people in any way we can. But I can definitely see why we're seen as hypocrites when we don't live up to this.

You can never live up to your pathetic credo. Love is not real, and tolerance is weakness.

A friend of mine created a new world for the rabid, racist, intollerant Bronies: "Coltists", meaning they are pretty much zealots of almost religious fanatism. He even wrote a fanfic called "My Tall Human: Fiendship Is Scientific", presenting everything that gices Coltist a well deserved butt-hurt.

I'm a brony, I this think it's very pointless to say "Love N Tolerance".

I have to say I completely agree with this. I consider my wife a bronie, but she's one of the few who loves and tolerates to the best of her ability (hell she even tolerates the existence of 'cupcakes' though we both question the sanity of the author). it just seems that everywhere you go any fandom you enter into there are going to be fundamentalists who basically ruin it for others. It's up to the proud few who can follow that one saying properly to make the best of it and give bronies a better name.

I do honestly agree with you, however I usually only see the bashing of things like humanized art here on DA. Thats the big problem with DA, there is 6-12 year olds who think that everything has to be just the way that they think it should be.

This would be good if it wasn't generalizing the bronies.
