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.

Fans of the show My Little Pony. Bronies differ from typical fans of the show because they are older than a typical fan of the show should be, and most of them are male, while a typical fan would be a little girl.

Bronies often shove the the fact that they are Bronies in everyone's faces by posting pictures of the show in forums, making their profile pictures of one of the characters, and generally bringing up the fact that they are a fan of the show, usually when no one asked or is even interested in knowing that they are Bronies.

I don't care that you like the show, personally I don't like it, but I won't condemn those who do, but seriously, not everyone needs to know that you are a Brony. Don't act like you are a suppressed minority or something. Just enjoy the show with fellow fans and leave it at that.
Online forum about a video game:

User 1: Hey I found a bug in the game that needs to be fixed.

User 2: What was the bug you found?

Brony: It will be fixed. Now, who here saw yesterday's episode of MLP?

User 1: Um, this topic is about a glitch in the game, not about some TV show. You Bronies need to relax.

Brony: How dare you! We Bronies will not be suppressed! We are normal people just like everyone else!

User 2: I'm sure you are, but your post was irrelevant to the topic. If you want to discuss MLP, go on a MLP forum and discuss it there.

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.
random Fan #1: Well, although i am male and grown-up, i actually like wathing this new "My little Pony" show.

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

A fan of the popular My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic animated show, developed by Lauren Faust.

Usually enjoys taking part in communities related to the show.

May or may not use a name inspired by the show and/or an image from the show as an avatar.

Typically tries to stay open minded, civil and tolerant.

Word comes from "bro" and "pony", but applies to both genders.
Person A: Hey, is that My Little Pony that you're watching?
Person B: Yeah, I'm a brony. The show was developed by Lauren Faust, who was involved with Powerpuff Girls. The animation is above average, and it isn't dumbed down as most animated shows these days. Give it a try, you might like it.

Bronies are the teenage and adult fans (mostly male) of the television show, "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic"
Though the term "brony" is gender-neutral, some female fans instead refer to themselves as "Pegasisters"
Bronies are generally people who decide to judge something on its quality, instead of whether it's "cool" or "manly" enough.
I'm a brony and I'm proud of it.

Fans of the new iteration of the "My Little Pony" franchise; the catch being they are outside than the target demographic (often male 13-30). "Brony" is a gender-neutral term (though for females "bronette" is sometimes used). Formed from the words bro and pony.

Bronies, unlike /b/tards, tend to NOT hate everyone on their sites, and seem to have Unitarian Unviersalist-esque values.

According to KYM, Bronies is at the level of "Internet Subculture" (same level as furries).

Contrary to popular belief, not all bronies have a fetish for horses, or even furry fetishes.
I am a brony.

A fan of the show "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". Often male, but female fans are not uncommon. (plural: bronies)

Bronies usually show a want to be accepted as normal people, but don't appear to realise that to be treated the same as anyone else, they need to stop making sure everyone knows and remembers that they are a brony at all times, without fail. They also don't appear to understand that most people don't appreciate the internet being taken over by their fandom, which is another main cause for the hate of bronies.
Person: Oh hey, you seem pretty okay, want to talk?
Brony: Oh, hi! By the way, I'm a brony.
Person: Uh, thats... cool?
Brony: yeah, I watch FiM every day. Hey, who's your favorite pony?
Person: Uh... I don't watch it.

Brony: Oh, I should show you! Let me show you it, you'll love it forever!
Person: No really, I'm fine... can we talk about something else?
Brony: Ooh, look, something that looks vaguely pony shaped! It looks just like -pony name-!
Person: Okay... I'm done. *Walks away*

(In case you haven't noticed yet, this is a HINT. Please, bronies, listen to me, for the sake of yourselves and everyone else)
