A brony is an adolescent or adult male who is a fan of the show "My Little Ponies." The fact that they exist shouldn't at all be surprising because the vast majority of adults enjoy watching some cartoons made for children. Men who fall into this category have no problem accepting that fact, and they're generally very chill, cool guys. A few are still secretly bronies because they don't want to be viewed as strange or different. As with all groups of fans, there exists a small offshoot of people who are perverted and deranged. These are referred to as pervonies. They consist of fan fiction writers and fan artists whose work is filled with sexually explicit and/or macabre subject matter loosely based on the "My Little Ponies" cartoon. This group also includes consumers of such material.
"Hey man, I heard you like My Little Ponies. Isn't a guy fan of that show called a brony?"

"Yeah. It's actually pretty cool. You should check it out."

"I dunno. It sounds kinda gay to me"

"Uh-huh. And I heard you're a fan of Sailor Moon and Pokemon. What's the difference? Ponies and kid's little anime characters seem on the same level to me."

"You got me there bro. I might check out a youtube clip or something."

A fan of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. Usually male, but some females prefer the term over Pegasister.

Bronies are usually stereotyped as pedophiles or as gay. As a general rule, this is not true. Bronies usually are also NOT furries, save for a few ultra-obsessed who have fantasies with their favorite characters from the Mane 6.

While it is true that some are annoying about popping up on non-brony related places on the internet to rant about ponies, the majority keep to pony-related websites and forums, such as Equestria Daily.
Brony: Have you seen MLP FiM? It's really good!
Non-Brony: You mean My Little Pony? You're a furfag?
Brony: I'm not going to waste my time on this, here, just watch this. I have the first episode on my phone.

*20 minutes later*

Former Non-Brony: This show kicks flank! Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash are awesome!
Brony: I know, right! Come over to my place and watch it, and then let's fuck bitches.

Group of males who think because they watch a TV series intended for teenage girls, that it somehow makes them rebellious and going against the norm. MY little pony fan base are a bunch of failed creations, craving for some kind of attention since they have no kind of social life or motivation to be something. Most will try to put up an argument, but you can't defend being a fan of a TV show about ponies when your an overweight slob with a neckbeard.

1. Some older male douchebag that thinks that "liking" a show meant for younger females somehow makes them a cooler person.

2. An older male current/future pedophile that gets off to small animated ponies. They say that they watch the show to meet girls, but the thing is... only very young females actually watch the shit.

Straight Guy: No I didn't watch it, and I have no plans of ever watching that lame ass shit to appease the scum of the Earth.

An adult fan of my little pony: friendship is magic, usually male. Generally more accepting than others, and Will greet other bronies with a 'brohoof' (a brofist, but called hoof because of ponies having hooves) the fandom itself has music art, fanfictions and conventions, as well as a radio station called 'everfree network' there are also female bronies, though some prefer to be called pegasisters. The name 'brony' is an amalgamation of 'bro' and 'pony' as pegasister is of 'pegasus' (a type of pony) and 'sister' most bronies are between 16 and early 30's with exceptions, but as the first bronies get older, the upper age limit will increase. The bronies are as diverse as can be, there are homosexuals, bi- and heterosexuals, furries and non-furries, gamers and trolls, military servicemen, doctors, music artists, and even a rocket scientist! They can be classed into three main groups: creatives, moderates, and hipsters. For more information on these groups look at 'let's go and meet the bronies' by JanAnimations on YouTube. When a Brony admits this fact to family and friends, it is known as coming out, or 'joining the herd' although this should not be confused with a homosexual coming out. See also: Clopping. 
'hey, y'know Gary from the football team? He came out as a Brony!'

A word used to refer to a fan of the show My Little Pony, normally the new revived version of the show known as generation 4 or My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It suddenly became popular when released in 2010, especially in America and it is known there are now millions of bronies spread worldwide.

Plural: Bronies

The majority of these people are male and around the age of 20 although this varies widely.
Many non-bronies seem to think all male bronies are gay/bisexual/pansexual ect.
This, however, is a common misconception.
The children's cartoon is well known for appealing to its adult fans, great animation and interesting characters which are not something you would normally see in a kid's show. Despite being known as a programme for young girls, in reality the creator of the new version (Lauren Faust) made it for families.
A brony is often a happy person. They could be anyone, even people you wouldn't expect; for example, the most popular girl/boy, the geeky quiet girl/boy or your best friend.
Girl: Oh, so you like My Little Pony? Me too!
Boy: Really? That's cool. Favourite pony?
Girl: Fluttershy. She's just like me, although a bit girlier.

Boy: Same! She's adorable.
Girl: Yeah, I agree. You sound like an awesome brony.
