I was on youtube earlier... and I saw a bunch of like brony cringe compilation, let's be honnest it is seriously cringe.
But I think the same thing for people that dress up as anime character... Personally i think its seriously weird, oh and those people with body pillows, don't get me wrong you do what you want with your life but you can't deny that it is seriously creepy...

But yet bronies are like worse aren't they? I mean anime has a lot and i mean A LOT to it, it has bunch of genres for all ages. But my little pony is a kid show. Seem's like bronies say that it has like a good "story" and that the characters are lovable.

BUT, im not the type of person that hates just like that, before i hate something i at least try it (if you think of what im thinking now your probably a pervert c:). So I went and watched an episode of the show. Now I felt like ether im completely like not sensible or whatever, or this is actually just a freaking kid's show and I would see my 6 years old niece watch?! Like i think you need hormone pills if you like watching that stuff but that's just me.

So anyway that is my personal point of vue...

What do you guys think of these people?

I feel nothing towards them. I can care less what people do with their lives.

"You do you"

It's not for me but as someone who does cosplay during some events, I guess that can also be considered "cringe" by some. It's a niche activity but I really see no difference between dressing up in cosplay when going to an anime/comic convention and someone who goes to the Superbowl dressed up in their team's jersey. At the end of the day, it's all about whether or not you can live with the fact that not everyone will be pleased by you. In all likelihood, you will certainly do or say something that will cause others to pass some form of criticism or judgement towards your character.

Dressed up in Kaneki cosplay about 2 years ago to comic con. Took a long subway ride to the Javits Convention Center in cosplay with no problems. I had several people in and around the convention ask to take a photo with me but never recieved anything rude. It's a matter of being comfortable in your own skin.

Blasé. I'm willing to sit down and watch just about anything, including MLP and other kiddie shows. Hell, I've recently begun tracking down a few from my own childhood to collect on DVD and Blu-ray. I got into anime because I like animation in general. I don't feel like I threaten my sex/adultness by watching a cartoon. Sure, I'm going to give someone a side-long look if I learn they fap to or draw hardcore MLP hentai, or something, but it's not much different from how I'd react to other extreme hentai and crap of other genres. MLP itself doesn't interest me, though. I sat through some episodes and a movie. It bores me.

Personally, I don't get it and do find it strange, but to each their own. If they're not causing others trouble, let them be.

Your interests are your business. I usually don't mind them.

MLP is a good show. Its sole intention is to sell toys, but they hired some awesome people to put the show together. Bronies weren't a thing until the Friendship is Magic series came around, and for good reason. The writing is great, the character designs are great. It's just a good show. At the end of the day, it's just a hobby or just something someone likes. There are tons of anime fans who are cringeworthy. Same goes for any other group of people. Furries, comicbook fans, otaku, etc. all have their fair share of "cringeworthy" participants. It doesn't make them the worst. You're just seeing it through a very narrow point of view. Like Alastor Crow said, "you do you." Long as it's not hurting anyone, there's no problem with it.

After enough bad interactions with them, I've come to develop hatred and genuine disgust for them. So these cringe compilations are always fun to watch for me. (Well they used to be. Got kinda bored after a while and moved over to other types of cringe stuff)

I don't see how it's worse than some of the weird crap that's in the anime/hentai circles. Different, yes, and a bit weird certainly. Is the feeling that it's somehow "worse" simply due to the fact it's marketed for young girls? Or is it whatever gets people so worked up over the Furry community? Until Friendship is Magic I don't think there was such a big adult interest in a cartoon show aimed at girls under 10.

Why should people should have to take hormone pills because they happen to like a cartoon?

There is Adventure Time, Steven Universe and Gravity Falls all marketed to younger audiences but that gained the interest of older viewers. Also Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels. These shows are aimed either towards the male end of the spectrum or a middle ground between boys and girls. Yet I haven't seen anything from anyone claiming that fans of these shows are weird. But due to the sheer vastness of the internet I may have missed them and they certainly aren't as vocal or as targeted as the MLP fandom.

In the anime circle you have a bunch of shows targeted at kids, one of the most prominent being Pokemon in the west. Many of the people who grew up with it when it first came over here are still devoted to it; buying the games, cards, figures and probably watching the show as well. The movies have always been enjoyable for me. Though when Pokemon Go released I was honestly a little weirded out by how big it was in those first few weeks.

No one says you have to get why others like the show or enjoy it yourself. I'm glad you at least gave it a chance to make an impression. Out of personal curiosity what episode did you watch?

As for myself, I can't say why exactly I started watching the show. I guess I saw that it had a pretty big following and was curious what that was all about. I'd seen some music videos put together by others and the animation and character designs made me see the potential of it being good. When actually watching the show, it started out kind of weak in the first season but got better as the following ones built upon the foundations that were laid. The characters have grown somewhat complex and they went from being shallow personality cut-outs to relatable characters that seem as though they could be met in real life as people. Adding to this is the fact that, except for the premieres and endings of each season, the show is all about conflict resolution. Definitely something that seems to be lacking nowadays.

With Season 7 dated to air next month I believe, I'm proud to say that the show makes me happier. Like eating a rainbow dipped in sugar and warm as a fresh cookie. It gives me something to look forward to and is something that I know will brighten my mood if I'm feeling down or if I've seen some rough shit at work. That's most likely what keeps me interested in the show and will probably hold me until its decline.

I still haven't decided how to feel about Equestria Girls...

EDIT

I realized I forgot to talk about how I feel about the rest of the Brony Community above.

Ultimately I don't have too much involvement with the community at large. There's good art, awesome songs, some great fanfiction and animations. There are also some fucked up stories and, of course, Rule 34.

The few other Bronies I've met have either been online through Skype, met some over Xbox Live and as it turns out met one at the ambulance company I work at. All have been nice, kind and courteous.

I haven't met a super fanatical one yet, but I'm sure they exist and are extremely unpleasant. At large I imagine Bronies are just like anime fans. We like our shows, we'll talk your ear off about them if you let us but in the end we're respectful and just want to watch our show.

They should all be lit on fire. Okay, but seriously if you dress up in a full-size bronie outfit then you might want to seek professional help.

I have a friend into it despite me not being it developed after we became friends it's not like he changed as a person he and I just don't share that particular interest that's all there is to it. I see them as people who have an interest in something that a lot society dislikes wouldn't go as far to say hate just they would rather they were not but to judge someone as a person on a single interest seems unfair to me especially if you are into anime because a lot of that stuff is viewed not to have "acceptable" themes along with video games (in the past not so much now) though people just dislike what they don't understand and create the worst case scenario in their heads so fail to even attempt to understand why they like it let alone give it a chance and that makes a basic lack of tolerance and respect eventually. They are just people with an obscure somewhat weird interest but that's fine if they are good people and pleasant to be around just like anyone else.
