Angel dragons, especially dutch Angel dragons. They're less mature than Tween girls on their period fangirling over one direction :,)

-snip-

Of course not everyone in the fandom is like that, but the fact that they have a unique name puts this into play:
By calling yourself a brony, you are consciously choosing to associate with those people. So instead of being quick to say "not ALL bronies", you could consider just calling yourself a MLP fan and distancing yourself from them. You CAN be a MLP fan without being a brony.

As for me though I didn't know brony had the connotations as sexist.
People like me could just be oblivious to the true meaning of that term.
For all this time I've considered myself a brony, just cause it's the term that was pioneered when MLP became big. I never knew it sectioned a group of sexist people.
Not trying to bash you Panda, just stating my experience on the term brony :)

Yes! And then the people who are like
"People who hate on ADs are just jealous, we're too cool for them with their boring normal animal sonas"
"I had my suit made by the one and only Telephoon so now I can't do whatever I want and be a shitty person because my white knights will protect me"

*intense facepalm*

*edit, just noticed the typo but I'm going to leave it, I like Telephoon better

That is absolutely fine  :fox-:P: And if you don't know about all that crap that's happened, then you're pretty lucky actually
People can identify as whatever they want, I'm just trying to make the point that the term brony has degraded into something terrible so its kinda impossible to lose the stereotypes surrounding it

The Cringe community. Basically, anybody who actively follows and posts on the Cringe Channel and all of the "bad art" blogs on places like Tumblr. Most of the people that post on them are incredibly cringeworthy themselves, are extremely hypocritical and part of me bets that they crap on people because they're horribly insecure in one way or another. Plus I can't stand all of the ableism and other forms of bigotry that comes out of those kinds of communities. Many of them legitimately use autism and other disorders as insults.

SJWs on Tumblr. I can't imagine a more toxic, self-righteous and obnoxious group of people. They act like they're above everybody else, and they treat people in privileged positions as though they're disgusting bigots. Worst of all some of them actually harass, stalk, dox and bully people in the name of a faux kind of social justice.

Pewdiepie fans. I find Pewdiepie horribly unfunny. Even if he is charismatic, I cannot understand how a person can become the most subscribed YouTuber in the world by just playing video games while cussing and making rape jokes in a Swedish accent. But I don't really hate him; I'm aware that he donates a tonne to charity and seems pleasant. I just think there are much better Lets Players out there. However, his fans really are terrible. It's fair to say most of them are immature and it's likely that some of them are 12 years old and under. The way they behave is kind of obnoxious and it makes me cringe remember what I was like as a preadolescent.

So goddamn true. I especially think SJW is worst.

The most ironic part of SJWs is that they have privilege. Without money/class privilege (they really like to ignore class privilege, which they have plenty of) they wouldn't be able to sit on Tumblr all day and complain.

I personally really dislike most of the fn@f fans. Hey I don't know, maybe they're good people, but when it's everywhere and referenced all the time... I especially don't like the ones who don't actually like the game (the honest ones) but since they're so afraid of getting hate they pretend to like it. Come on, have more self confidence than that. Ohh but the ones who just draw all this fan art just for likes or some bs really gets to me. Mmk, unpopular opinion time: I really hate this game, it's not even scary to me and the squeals gradually get worse so maybe I have a bit of bias with everything i'm saying here. I don't know, I don't care, I really don't like the game and a lot of the fans.

Reddit. I like Reddit but darn can the community be toxic.

Find yourself a niche subreddit and get away from all the clutter.

RWBY fandomI absolutely hate them, there's nothing special about it anymore and they ruined cosplaying along with conventions for me. The anime isn't as good as they say it was either. And the shipping, dear lord the shipping... Just stop it already and enjoy the show for what it is not what it isn't. (¬_¬)

Deadpool fandom Half of those people have never even read a comic I bet you, they just dress up and act a fool annoying people. Seriously, stop.

I really have no time for fanbases... from what I've seen nearly all of them are terrible in their own special ways.
There aren't very many exceptions. The only exceptions I can think of are the ones that actively force out jackasses, posers, and radicals, or the ones that just don't attract them at all.

I don't like any fandom nor fan base.
It tends to range from just liking something to seriously devout extremism
Whether you're Otaku or Furry, fandoms are similar to religion.
Understandable, but people can take them waay too seriously sometimes.

Meanwhile, in the Sonic "fandom"...

The current state of the Brony community annoys me as well, criticism about the show? You're an awful no life hater troll! We will fix this with " Friendship! " GODNOGETAWAYFROMMEPLEASE ;~;
That and the sexism. It's come to " NO GURLZ ALLOWD >:C " at this point XD

This isn't a fandom, but it's pretty similar.

SJWs or whatever the heck it is. I can't do anything without being oppressive, literally everything you do if you're a white cis male = rape, and they do the dumbest stuff in the name of " Social justice! "  * grumble grumble *
