So I just got back last night from a brony convention in San Francisco. I was working a booth for a vendor friend, and let me tell you what happened:
We met a little girl who was there with her family. She got a button drawn at our booth, told us all about her favorite…
I get the brony hate with an experience like that, but I think it’s unfair to wrap all adult men who like this show under that blanket. There are a lot of bronies who are decent human beings, great ones even and it saddens me that people like that pedo makes people think that all bronies are like that when it’s not the case.
What saddens me even more is adult men or women that behave inappropriately in a family setting. Conventions are supposed to be for everyone (unless specified otherwise)! In a comic book convention you can sometimes see people doing risqué cosplays because the character is probably just like that. I wouldn’t call it inappropriate exactly… But at a Pony convention, being inappropriate and selling pervy fan art in a convention where the ORIGINAL targeted demographic is kids and you will most likely see a LOT of children in a con like this, I would call it a huge no-no… I mean, if the artist is going to sell sexy posters or pillows or whatever in a convention like that, if you’re going to do that, keep it in another binder AWAY FROM KIDS and have a sign or something letting those interested in that kind of thing that you do have content like that.
Lastly, what bothers me about this post is that her being a kid, I can understand her worrying about getting in trouble for “tattling,” but I’m assuming OP is an adult or at least old enough. You should have spoken up when the kid didn’t. What if the guy had given up on Babby and targeted another child? Something to think about if a similar situation happens in the future. Still, glad you looked out for her.
