    Hello everyone, OddAtheist here. Some of you may know me in the comment section while others may not. I figured it was hightime the people at Christwire got a look at what a Brony actually is. I’ve have heard many assumptions the people of Chrsitwire have made about Bronies with no facts to back themselves up (Christwire using facts…What a joke) First, a definition:

    Brony
    A name typically given to the male viewers/fans (whether they are straight, gay, bisexual, etc.) of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic show or franchise. They typically do not give in to the hype that males aren’t allowed to enjoy things that may be intended for females

    They assume that just because we like a show targeted for little girls that we are gay. While being homosexual is not wrong, we are not all gay. Whether we are straight, gay, bi, pan, or even asexual; It does not matter. I’m a straight male and I love this show. I’ve also been called a liberal because I like the show. I don’t see how political views even factor into liking the show or not. They also assume we take part in beastiality. I find the act of beastiality a little disturbing and would never take part in it. They also assume we’re furries who dress up like ponies and participate in Gay orgies. Which is false as well.

    A previous article also mentioned the show itself supports a gay agenda as most of the characters are transexuals…Most of the main cast are girls. Male ponies do exist in their world, but since it is a girl’s show after all, the main cast is mostly females. The show itself actually teaches good morals, values, and lesson on friendship with every episode. Each of the main ponies actually represents an important trait of friendship, Let’s take a look shall we?

    Applejack. A home-on-the-range country girl who works on her parent’s apple farm. She represents Honesty, shown never to lie and is always as honest as she can be. Real World Application: Honesty is important. Be honest with your friends and you’ll gain each other’s trust and become good friends

    Rairty: The fashion-loving one of the group. She runs the town’s dress shop. She represents Generosity. She’s willing to do anything for her friends even if it not’s what she likes. Real World Application: Sharing is caring. Simple as that.

    Pinkie Pie: The fun-loving-party-throwing pony. She represents Laughter. She’s laughing at least 75% of the time and can find the fun in everything. Real World Application: Friends who laugh together, stay together.

    Fluttershy: The kindest of the ponies and animal lover. She represents kindness. She takes care of all the animals and tries her best to not hurt anyone’s feelings. Real World Application: Kindness, self explanatory.

    Rainbow Dash: The lives-on-the-edge pony who always looking for a challenge. She represents Loyalty. Alwyas willing to protect her friends no matter the danger. Real World Application: Be loyal to your friends and they shall be loyal back

    Twilight Sparkle: The magic student and new to friendship. She represents Magic. The magic itself representing when you bring the othe parts of friendship together, it’s like magic. Real World Application: Friendship is Magic.

    That about wraps it up. I thank anyonewho takes the time to read this. To my fellow Bronies: Hope your day gets 20% cooler.

    P.S. I couldn’t get any of the images to work, so here’s a link where you can see them yourself: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
