Out of the swamps of 4Chan came an unlikely trend. "Bronies" are adult male fans of the My Little Pony cartoon series. They were mercilessly persecuted in 4Chan, but they responded with love and tolerance. My Little Pony is aimed at little girls. But bronies say it is surprisingly well-written and beautifully animated. Sick of the negativity on 4Chan, the bronies set up their own Internet HQ where they can post to their heart's content. Haters are gonna hate, but learning the lessons of friendship can only make life better for everypony.
