I don't consider myself a brony. That does complicate the issue of having a Rainbow Factory set now... Hmm.
I like the fandom. They make a lot of great art and gripping stories. I'm really pleased with how Hasbro has been dealing with this, although I wonder if they are still in shock with the reception that MLP got. It is similar to what happened to Twilight. I read somewhere that Hasbro choose not to enforce their copyrights too hard to allow it to grow. More stuff for them I guess.
I've done researched, but I've never seen a complete episode, just segments that come on TV. I would guess that I would have to be a fan of the show and doing some fandom work to be considered a brony.
To be honest, I feel the brony fandom suffers the same way furries do. They're not all bad like we perceive them, but we do a lot of the same things, and there is a handful who make it worse for the whole fandom by just going too damn far or make drama where there need not be. Every fandom has this sort of thing, but you don't hear much of Supernatural's death threats to cast members or Doctor Who's creepy letters. You're often hearing of Bronies, Furries, Homestuck, the fandoms that shake things around. Not enough people focus on the good, yo.
But anywho, let's move on from this because I feel this is a slippery slope.
Anyone have thoughts on Remember Me that just came out?
Its those kind of people that make you want to back away from the genre. That really doesn't affect me too much. I'm already at a low point of social status in my area. If there are a lot of people that really enjoy their interest, then, okay, not your problem when you see for yourself on how good it is. I find devoted communities really fun to enjoy. There are whovians, trekkies, bronies, tolkienites. Do they mean the show is bad? Are people really that biassed? Ok, done ranting.
Do you know of the Westboro Baptist church? They're a group of religious extremists, and it's common for them to wear clothing like that in public and be proud of it. So Tuor was guessing you were referencing them in your example.

They're an extremely vocal and fundamentalist church in the states, they're fairly well known, but I guess not globally yet. They are famous for picketing military funerals and having signs that say things like "God hates Fags" and stuff.
Ah, right. So they somehow know that god's a homophobe. They must be able to talk to him directly. That or they just want to insult people by having the derogatory term for a homosexual on their shirt. I hate people like that.
