Okay so here’s my drunken tumble post…
The brony flag is a duality, I’d important to us, but at the same time its meaningless.
Its pointless to abandon or change it for two reasons.
1. Its not the name people attack, its the false perception of who we are.
2. Because of reason 1, the problems that dog the brony name would follow us to any other name we adopt.
Ironically, if I dropped the brony name, and people instantly forgave me, it proves that its prejudice against a name without judging my character.
Brony is not the problem. Cloppers are not the problem. Fans of MLP are not the problem.
People who can’t use freedom of speech and action responsibly are the problem.
