So how do we call the "brony" girl ?

Recommended Posts

So apparently the word "brony" is a contraction of "brother" and "pony"
Urban dictionry say that it's "A name typically given to the male viewers/fans (whether they are straight, gay, bisexual, etc.) of the My Little Pony show or franchise. They typically do not give in to the hype that males aren't allowed to enjoy things that may be intended for females."

But the thing is, there is also a lot of girl watching mlp, and not only little girl. So how do we must call them ?
I don't know if anypony has already thought about this but this is something that 
intrigues me since the day I've learn the meaning of "brony"


So, did I, once again  :ooh:  miss something or is there just no world for it ? 
Please help a brony lost in mystery !  :huh:

Well, people came up with "pegasister" a long time ago but I'm not sure if that's still being used.

The typically accepted terms for females fans is either pegasister or brony. Not all terms have to be gender-specific though. Depends on the individual's preference. :)

I used to see it quite frequently but maybe in my time away things have changed.

Meh, I just call them bronies too. I don't see the point in making brony a gender specific term.

 

 That said, yeah. "Pegasister" is the term people have used for girl bronies in the past. If I ever used that term I'd just shorten it to "Pegasis".

I don't actually care for either term, so just call pretty much anyone and everyone I speak to about the show 'fans".

 

I pretty much only use the terms when needing to write something about them in general.

 

 

"Pegasister" as a term may not be all that appealing, but neither is "brony" honestly. Of course opinions and all that. Your results may vary.

I've seen Pegasister used many times, most girls I know prefer brony anyways...so it's just whatever. Though, I don't really like either term, but if someone called me either term, I'd just say yea, I'm a fan.

I'm pretty this has already been a topic of discussion, but whatever.

 

I prefer brony, if I need to use any kind of label at all. I mean, I like animation. I may or may not aspire to be an animator. I don't care about the intended demographic... all lot of kids shows appeal to adults, though, in my opinion.

 

Anywho...

Yeah, pegisister is a word, but I never cared for it because it's exclusively associated with the word Pegasus.

 

I really don't think any girls care about the male association with the word "bro", sooooo... Who cares?

Yeah I'm pretty agree, no need to put names on everything but since there was a name, I was just wondering if there also was one for girls, that's it.
Personally "brony" is a word I never use, first because it make me think of cake so i got hungry :pinkie:   and second because the world "fan" is better, plus we all have name and/or pseudonym so why would I use something else !?

Many of us do prefer the term "brony" over "pegasister", just as there are some who don't mind being called the latter. I personally prefer not to be called either nowadays. It's really up to the preference of the individual!

My daughter calls herself a brony. My wife has also casually referred to herself as one on a few occasions. I suppose it comes down to what the person prefers.

Brony just sounds cooler to me.

 

This, but some girl bronies would prefer the other term 'pegasister' I'd imagine.

You have to take it on an individual basis. This is naturally what happens when a masculine term is attempted to be forced as gender-neutral. Some of us won't buy into it, some others go with it.

 

I'm simple, though. Just don't ever refer to me as a "Brony", because I am not. I'm simply a MLP fan. I don't need no special term. To me it's just a franchise I have a casual interest in. It's not my life, so no reason for any descriptor beyond "MLP fan".

I don't really like to call them pegasisters for some reason. I just like to generalize them as bronies, because we don't seem to care about gender when we say, "Hey guys," now do we?

Female fans were known as pegasisters not sure if its still a thing, but I feel that fans of the show should not need a name to be a fan why should one be considered a brony or pegasister? why not just be called a fan? fans of the earlier generations were not known by any name they were considered just fans and that's how I see myself not by a name, but a fan.

brony, pegasister or nothing :/ dunno.. there are lots of different prefences but i just use a word before brony when talking about guys exclusively. brony when referring to everyone in the MLP:FIM fandom and pegasister when referring exclusively to girls

here's a poll on what the ladies think (if you are male don't touch the poll *slaps your wrist* i didn't ask you X3

they were calling themselves Pegasister for a while but that was stopped because its seen as highly segregationist and makes the whole wuv and tolerate inclusion of "Brony" pointless

Depends really of she would openly agree to be called a pegasister or not. I personally think that it's just further unneeded labeling within the fandom.

 

All fans are fans no matter what term you use.
