Dark things happen on 4-chan, very dark things... If you're not familiar with what Bronies are, let us elaborate. Bronies are a fan community, consisting of males and females in their 20s who are massive fans of the show "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic."
The "My Little Pony" series were created in the 1980s, targeting primarily young girls. Now, before you x-out of this post and run for the hills alerting child services, we highly encourage you to reserve your judgment for 3 minutes and watch the charming video above.
Vocativ's Sam Matthews takes a non judgmental look at BronyCon. It's like comic-con but with lots more ponies.
