    just wondering.

    I get little to no hate from others except a few people questioning my mental health ( I'm fine by the way).
    where i live no one cares to be honest.

    if you do get receive hate how do you respond to it ? Aggressively or Love and Tolerate ?

    People use it as an insult but not seriously. "Yeah but you like pones" sort of thing.

    You know, I haven't actually received any real hate either. There was one person who I told who then stated that she had always hated my little pony, I assumed it was the earlier ones but I simply didn't mention it to her again and we continued talking. Apart from that, most people either accept it or choose to ignore it. The important thing is not to force it on people.

    I can't say I've had any trouble with it. I've had a few jokes from my mates, but that's to be expected; I've never had any actual grief from liking My Little Pony.

    I think all these horror stories of people being bullied and beaten are mainly from America-that must be horrible. and any hardcore haters in Britain aren't tough enough to say it to our faces

    I suspect they're also school pupils. If you're at all different from what is deemed "acceptable" it's a lot harder to avoid at school as opposed to uni/adult life, where you can simply hang out with people who respect you and avoid everyone else.

    I told my friends, they reacted positively and even liked some of the fan stuff I occasionally share, one even seems to be getting me pony stuff for christmas, but they won't ever actually watch an episode.

    Some incredulity, but never hate, I've even had work colleagues send me pony related memes they've seen "because [I'll] appreciate this" :)

    I don't really get hate at all. But then again I don't really broadcast the fact.
    Most of the people I know are Brones anyway.

    Even my friend who does hate bronies hasn't given me any hate for me liking it, he just makes small jokes about it but all in a good laugh kinda way. I've received hate online but only by one or two people, all they do is rant about how awful it is and such, but once that rant or two was out of the way it was back to normal again.

    Personally I've yet to receive any hate from it. I've had plenty of jokes made about it by my friends, but that's expected and I just make jokes about something they like instead, cause we're a right bunch of [ERROR: CHOICE OF WORD NOT FOUND: IMAGINATION REQUIRED].

    But I mean, like most people, I don't go like, waving it around much. My avatar here is my Skype avatar, and besides that there's very little else anywhere that I show anything for it. Besides having some humorously parodied names in Guild Wars 2 that I actually used before becoming a brony (It was a joke at the time between the same aforementioned friends) and the Mumble channel I own having some things related to it in a joking manner, there's nothing to really show for it anywhere for me. I guess I'm not public enough with it to get hate. Not that it's very common anyway from what I've heard or seen.

    No hate, but it's confused a few people. Then again, I'm not particularly vocal about ponies except with bronies and those friends who understand why I'm a fan, even if they themselves are not.

    I just receive hate, regardless of anything
    I doubt being a brony would make it any worse xD

    That's Terrible. I used to receive hate for liking Star trek but that was several years ago.

    What's important to remember is that this happens to any fandom. I've legitimately heard "yeah but you like minecraft so [your opinion] doesn't count". Yes, you probably hear this more as a brony, but it's because MLP is a fandom they don't understand compared to others.

    On anther note, the worst I've heard is mom with " My little pony, is s/PG-13/bad/g and phony" when she first understood that I was a brony.
