antifeminism bronies creepy I'm totally being sarcastic men who should not ever be with ponies ever men who should not ever be with women ever misogyny MRA patriarchy penises twitter

Clop clop clopping along with Epic Atheist Brony, MRA extraordinaire [UPDATE: Probably a troll.]

You remember the Men’s Rights Bronies we met not so long ago? Well, I have discovered another one, this one on Twitter! In addition to being brony and a “highly active MRA,” he is also – brace yourself for this – an atheist who loves to wear fedoras and talk in public about what he likes to do with his penis. (And they say stereotypes aren’t true.) His personal creed? “Love & tolerance.”

Anyway, his name is Epic Atheist Brony, and here’s his Twitter profile.

[NOTE: Mr. Brony seems to be a troll. See update below for details.]

Here are some recent highlights from his Twitter timeline. (Note: “clopping” is Brony slang for masturbation.)

Love & tolerance, everyone!

But you gals will have to enjoy your love & tolerance in the kitchen, while the clearly superior Epic Atheist Brony whacks it to cartoon ponies and tweets about which cartoon ponies his penis likes the most.

UPDATE: It seems likely that Mr. Brony is a troll/Poe. “His” original Twitter profile pic was a photo of a guy in a fedora, supposedly him. Trouble is, the actual guy in the pic stepped forward and explicitly denied being Mr. Brony (and, for that matter, being a “sexist fucktarded meme-spewing Redditor.”) Here’s the pic the real fedora-wearing dude posted as evidence. Thanks to @mister_smiley on Twitter for the link.

Fluttershy is not best pony! Rainbow Dash is best pony!

Also someone please tell him that most women of “ruling” age don’t even get periods any more.

Also someone please tell him that even if women didn’t have jobs, “only” having children and caring for families actually is kinda important to society.

@cffry must have the patience of a saint.

The only reason women get jobs is to spite men and not take care of the household

Yeah, how dare women get jobs. Not only do they get jobs, but then they use money from their paychecks for frivolous things like “rent”, “food”, and “the gas bill”. The nerve of some women, wanting food and shelter.

Epic atheist brony should become a roommate with one of the MRA’s that think that cleaning a house and taking care of small children is like a vacation at a luxury resort. Then they could both be happy.

I had a bunch of Bronies freak out over some posts I made about MLP recently. Some of them were very sweet in correcting me, and many of them called me a cunt! It was fascinating!

For the last frickin’ time: many women are not married to men, or are married to men whose incomes are not sufficient to support their families. Those women still have to do mundane things like eat, or feed their dependents. How… this isn’t hard to grasp, I don’t… have you met women who weren’t straight and married to upper-middle-class dudes? Because I’m pretty sure that’s the majority of women.

I have never seen MLP (new version). Can someone explain to me the Bronies versus “Pegasisters” thing? Are the ponies gendered male on the show? Given that he’s referring to a queen this seems unlikely. Also he calls the show almost all female – again, what does that mean? So all the ponies are female? WTF is going on here?

Cliff Pervocracy

It’s impressive how quickly he goes between “women are worthless because they don’t work outside the home” and “women are worthless if they work outside the home.” Lots of MRAs believe both but you don’t usually see it so neatly spelled out.

I guess women just violate men’s rights by being born at all.

May be this is really a fake? I mean, this guy tweets about masturbation and how women suck and contribute nothing. He’s also likes MLP and collects hats… It looks like a parody to me. It’s just too weird to be true :-S

Yes, women should only stay in the kitchen until theyre ready to give birth…which means he should hate Lauren Faust for daring to step out of the kitchen and making…my little pony…hmm.

@Cassandra, bronies and pegasisters is the term for the fans, not the ponies in the show. There are male and female ponies in the show, although most of the major players are female. (spike is the only ‘main’ character thats male, and hes a dragon.)

“Everybody who has benefitted society deserves equal rights. Women only clean, cook, and take care of children and give birth.”

Who knew it didn’t benefit society to have living humans via them being born and fed and cared for until they could do so for themselves as adults.

If only I had known these were optional before almost dying from pregnancy twice and working all these hours to make sure my kids had food to eat, not to mention the pain from learning to breast feed….

CassandraSays – All of the mane (uh… main) six characters on MLP:FiM are female, and both the mayor of the town and the ruler of the country are also female. There are male characters whom everyone is very friendly with, but the core group is all mares (uh… girls).

Considering how many shows are the other way around, I’m not crying too hard about this.

(Also, the Fluttershy thing. Fluttershy is very meek and quiet–she tends to hide behind her hair and speak in a whisper–so she has a lot of creepy male fans who think she’s the Ideal Woman. On the show, she actually has a lot of hidden strength when she’s pushed too far, but I think they try to ignore that part.)

@ Joven

What I was trying to get at was, OK, so there are ponies and pegusi (is that the correct plural?) on the show. Bronies love ponies, obviously, and they’re men. Is the assumption just that everyone who loves ponies is a man and everyone who loves a pegasus instead is a woman? That’s the gendering part that’s confusing me.

CassandraSays

Also ew about Fluttershy, and figures that sexists would focus on that particular character. This has some serious “you’re so jealous that men don’t like you as much as they like fluffy adorable kittens!” Meller potential.

Cliff Pervocracy

CassandraSays – There are three pony “species” on the show–pegasi, unicorns, and Earth ponies. All of them come in both genders and all of them have fans of both genders.

However, “bronies” means male fans of the show and I guess “pegasisters” is female fans.

They’re gendering it because they’re trying to congratulate themselves for being adult men who like a show that’s ostensibly for little girls. It has nothing to do with whether guys prefer ponies or ladies prefer pegasus or whatever. It’s all about trying to form some sort of identity around being cool, enlightened, and hipster enough to admit you like a kid’s show.

I remember back in the day, all my college-age friends and I liked Dexter’s Lab, Animaniacs, and Powerpuff Girls. We managed to do that without spending half our lives patting our own backs about it. But, whatevs.

See, I like Fluttershy, but it’s specifically because she’s stronger than she appears on the surface. I just like the message that being kind and gentle doesn’t make you weak, I guess.

“Because men are the only logical gender of mankind.”

Leaving aside his full frontal assault on the English language – they keep saying that, but are never able to prove it.

“Can you imagine a woman ruling?”

Unlike the men who have been in charge so far, women would probably start pointless wars and commit genocide.

Disclaimer: I’m not saying things would be better if only women were in charge, or that all men would be the same as the worst men if they were in charge. What I’m saying is that “Because men are the only logical gender of mankind. Can you imagine a woman ruling? What would happen during her menstrual cycle?” is misogynistic and illogical bullshit, wilfully blind to both history and the world today.
If men had the monopoly on logic and reason that misogynists keep claiming, you’d think that this planet would be in much better shape.

So do I! I also like that the other characters (mostly) treat her shyness like a legitimate character trait, not like something they have to constantly force her to get over. They sometimes push her into facing her fears, but never into being “normal.” I think it sends the message that “shy” is just a way people sometimes are, and that’s nice.

That happens on the actual show. Equestria is a principality ruled by a princess.

Does it seem odd to anyone else that there even exists brony slang for masturbation? I mean, I’m a little obsessive with my own favourite media, but I don’t go around talking about “staking it” to a favourite vampire or anything.

@ Viscaria

You’d think that “fap” would work. Also the “clopped” thing implies hooves coming into contact with delicate areas, which sounds more ouchy than fun. Plus now I have a generic “comedic horses clopping along” sound in my head.

Orion

Viscaria–

I think it came about partly because linguistic humor, and a kind parallel language are part of the fun of the show. Characters address people and crowds as “somepony” or “everypony,” live in cities like Manehattan and Appleloosa, and so on, and substitue “hooves” for “hands” in various aphorisms.

So I think it’s natural that part of the fun of pony fandom is figuring out “how would they say this or that in Eqeustria?”

I refuse to believe in the term “pegasister.” People of all genders can be bronies!

Also, Rarity is obviously best pony. She’s feminine, but she can still take care of herself, and I like how many of her plotlines revolve around her creating things and trying to become a successful designer instead of, I don’t know, “teehee I’m so jealous of my best friend’s outfit.”

Pray to Darwin? Fuck off.

As a brony atheist who likes fedoras and talking about zir genitalia in public, I resent being associated with this gentleman.

I adore Rarity, for reasons (like being a small business owner and a fashionista myself) that are not entirely secret. Though I also identify with Fluttershy’s shyness and Twilight’s quest to read ALL the books.

@Orion, I guess that makes sense. I suppose what I’m really uncomfortable with is certain parts of the fandom sexualizing the hell out of what a show that’s intended for little girls. But if they’re not actually squicking out little girls, or demanding that the show itself be more sexualized, or acting like they are more important than the intended audience, there’s nothing wrong with it. It’s my issue that I have to get over.

I dislike the brony/pegasister distinction, mostly because it’s lopsided–pegasi are ponies, one of the three types. Until someone coins a term for the ladies that also encompasses unicorns and earth ponies, I will count myself as a brony.

Dani: Yep. Although Rarity is my favorite, I also identify a lot with Pinkie Pie (in my happy moments) and Twilight (must read ALL THE THINGS, massive fear of failure).

Why is fapping to ponies a bad thing?

Is Futrelle trying to say men are terrible if they don’t conform to a gender stereotype of loving women?

That they’re “creepy” for having a sexuality outside the mainstream?

Next time you try to say feminism doesn’t support the Patriarchy, you might want to check your privilege. Not everyone has sexual fantasies that require real live human beings.

I mean fuck, anyone fapping to mainstream porn is kind of already fapping to a photoshopped fantasy anyway.

But hey, keep on trying to push some sort of “NORMAL” sexuality onto people Futrelle. As though someone’s sexuality that causes NO HARM to anyone is something that should be mocked.

The rest of us are expanding our definition of sexually acceptable.

You could do a lot to learn tolerance, just the same as My Little Pony promotes.

@Viscaria: there are a number of bronies (male and female fans) in the sf group I advise on campus–they’re all pretty cool (the male fans who identify as Bronies tend to not perform masculinity in the traditional way; a number are also anime fans and cosplay women characters, among other things) but there are parts of Brony Fandom online who definitely think they should be more important than the intended fandom (apparently this really came into focus with the debate over um Derby? And the changed name?). (ONe of the fans who is a Brony did his final paper for his master’s on Brony fandom as a bibliographic essay on the research needed to do an analysis of a fandom that’s not the intended demographic, and had a bunch of cool stuff).

I think “brony” is best used to adult fans of the series, myself, but that’s just me being all evilly feminist about any system which distinguishes a group based solely on gender (I used to verbally smack people who called me a ‘poetess’ or ‘ladypoet’ back in the 70s).

p.s. I never saw any sexualization of the show going on amongst my group–my grad student as noted above made a game with a friend of his, and they would play after meetings. THat doesn’t mean it didn’t happen; I just never saw any evidence of it! But then I am their advisor!

Dani and Ozy – I identify most with Rainbow Dash, because:

1) OMG BUTCH LITTLE PONY AWWWWW.

2) I definitely have her same struggle with finding a balance between self-esteem and being a jerk, trying to show my friends I’m cool without annoying or alienating them.

3) She gets a little electric guitar theme! I reiterate, AWWWW.

I also like Applejack purely because she is a pony with a ponytail and my brain can barely handle that much cute.

All the characters get this treatment – their personalities are all fine, none of them is inherently more virtuous than any of the others, it’s only a problem when it gets taken too far. And they all come across as completely authentic – you can think of real girls you’ve met who were like that. I love that about the show.

Twilight – though her name is a bit ruined for me by a certain sparkling creepy vampire – is my favorite for her love of books (she literally lives in a library!) and her inquisitive mind. Though Rainbow is a close number two, for her fierce character.

While most people have a strong opinion of which is the “best” pony, I prefer to not think of it in terms of best. Everypony is born equal. However when it comes to my personal favourite pony, it comes down to a tie between Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie because she’s very likely ADHD, and I can relate to that, and Twilight on account of being able to relate to her position as being that one smart person who likes to use big words. Also, I would like to bring forth the fact that a large section of the fandom despises clop and pornography of the characters in its entirety, It’s like with furries, there are the ones who just like anthro art, and then there are the ones who are into crazy fetish-laced yiff fiction, and/or animal supremacy ideals. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it helps to illustrate that fandoms draw all varieties of people.
