My Little Bronies: Why the Internet is Magic
This is a really good read on the culture of the net and sociability of the Brony community. Far too long young men have had to suffer under premiss that showing emotion and sharing experiences or interests outside what is considered normal was to be met by denigration of character and questioning of manhood and even sexuality. Which could and does accelerate into feelings of isolation, anger, and low self worth. As with the rise of cyber bullying gaining all the news articles almost no attention is paid to a growing community all to willing to be accepting and supportive simply because it’s not normal for young men to like ponies.
