Comicpalooza: Here Come the Bronies
Health Department Roundup: Burger King, Chaat and Bronies
You may have heard about these aspects of the Brony scene online because, let's face it, extremes drive clicks. You could hold these people up as an example of the End Times, but in a way it's actually very positive. It shows just how varied the My Little Pony fandom can be.
"No one in the community is similar," said Read. "In our group we have many people from all different aspects of life with different beliefs, ideals and personalities. Heck,
one of my best friends who supports and loves the Brony community served in the army for three years as a bomb technician."
The Brony community continues to grow. In Houston alone, the Society has swelled from 20 members to nearly a thousand. That is an impressive gathering any way you look at it. It still seems somewhat off-putting, but up until several years ago, every aspect of comic culture and geek convention life seemed that way to the mainstream. Now so much of what was once niche and hidden has become acceptable and celebrated.
And furthermore, any fandom that can be explored for ten minutes with hardcore physics can't be anything but cool.
