Typically refers to 13-30 year old male fans of the 2010 reboot of the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but may also include females (see fillies).

Brony = Bro + Pony

While generally associated with a negative stereotype by outsiders, due to it's former 80's frilly girly-girl twinkle-toed tea-parties and all-female main casting, bronies are attracted to the new show by it's good animation, acting, writing, and humor.

Having once been on the outside, bronies can love and tolerate others until they themselves become bronies. However, haters gonna hate— most likely due to the fact that they have a masculinity inferiority complex, where they believe that if they watched My Little Pony, others like them will label them as an effeminate freak.
Phase 1) Are you joking? How can adult males watch a show for girls?
Phase 2) Pfft. I'll see what all the fuss is about, maybe make fun of the show.
Phase 3) Meh. It was okay. It wasn't that bad, I'll give it that.
Phase 4) It's actually kind of funny and entertaining.
Phase 5) I take back everything bad I've said! This is AWESOME! ...but I'd be ruined if anyone found out...
Phase 6) Friendship is Magic! Screw it! I'm a brony!
Phase 7) I'm dead serious, you should watch My Little Pony, too.
Hater) You guys are all gay freaks... I'll never watch that. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to jerk off while lifting weights and playing video games all day to pretend to be a man.

Bronies simply means people who are of an older age group and like to watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. There is nothing particularly exciting about this, but they make a big deal out of it.

Jump on to a forum most places online, and you will see these people often pushing their fandom. As in, you will be on a forum for cars, and someone will have their display picture as a pony, and all their posts will be about ponies. Then when people accuse them of being off topic, they go into a rant about acceptance, as if watching a cartoon is some sort of big revelation.

Subculture is one thing, but it is a totally other thing to push it into people's faces and then get upset. It would be like heavy metal fan jumping on to a My Little Pony forum and spending their whole time talking about metal, and then getting upset that they aren't well received.

As such, bronies are known to complain about acceptance, and about how hard it is to live in a world like this. News flash fellahs, no one really gives a shit. People don't hate that you like My Little Pony, they hate that you won't fucking shut up about it.
Brony: Hey guys, I know this is a post about motorbikes, but did anyone watch My Little Pony yesterday? Wow!

Regular poster: Umm...that is a bit off topic, don't you think? What is with all these posts about ponies?

Brony: Us bronies just want to be treated like everyone else. Why do you hate us for our subculture?

Fans of an animated cartoon created by feminist Lauren Faust, started in 2010 and premiered on The Hub. The show is primarily targeted towards little girls, but has somehow gained a disgusting cult following of older, single, "virgin4life" males that call themselves "bronies". They are considered to be the scum of the internet, or simply Internet Cancer. They have been known to bring up MLP in topics and conversations in an irrelevant fashion. Bronies recklessly attack anyone that doesn't like their unhealthy obsession, while hypocritically claiming to "love and tolerate the shit out of you". Bronies don't seem to understand that us "haters", DO NOT hate their girly cartoon, but in fact, hate them. We have zero problem with your interest, but we have an issue with you spreading your cancer everywhere and shoving MLP down everyone's throats. No one gives a fuck. If you like to jerk off to horses, that's your own business and you keep that shit to yourselves. Bronies also claim that "haters" aren't comfortable with their sexuality, using that as a petty reason to counter haters. When in fact, all of us normal functioning members of society are comfortable with our sexuality, hence, that's why we aren't watching little girl cartoons, having sex, and working a stable job.

Curing the internet of this cancer, it's going to be like 1942 you ponyfags.
Brony: So, have you been watching MLP?

Me: I saw a few episodes to see what the hype was about.

Brony: So whatcha' think? Isn't it liek the grrrreeeeeaaaaattteeest show eva?

Me: No, it's just a cartoon, and I don't see the big deal about it.

Brony: WHHHHAAAAA?!?!!? OMG YOU DONT UNDERSTAND!!! HATERS GONNA HATE!!!!!! ITS THE BEST SHOW EVER!!!!!! PONIES PONIES PONIES!!!!!!!

Me: Go get a terminal illness fag.

Brony: I'm a 26 year old virgin that still lives with my parents, and I plan on keeping it that way for 50+ years!!!!! Woo hoo!!!!!!!11111!!!!1111tiem2fukponiezagaiyn.

The term used to describe a fan(usually of the older kind, male or female) of the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

It is the combination of the words 'bro' and 'pony'

Although 'bro' may refer to males, the term 'brony' is gender-neutral, and thus it may be applied to the male and female fans of the show.

"Brony" is the singular form of "Bronies"

The term was coined on 4chan's /co/ board.
Brony A: "Dude, just finished watching the first season of MLP:FiM!"
Brony B: "Cool! So who do you think is the best pony?"
Brony A mentions the pony they think is best.
Brony B Agrees and exclaims: "Brohoof!"
The bronies then brohoof, similar to a high five.

Typically the term for older or grown-up, male fans of the "My little Pony" franchise. But since there is no common and nalog term for female fans of the show, brony can as well be used gender-neutral.

rndom fan #2: Don't worry, it's cool! We also do. Welcome to the herd, brony.
