I bet most part of actual Bronies have past this 5 steps, I put they here in video and image

Personally I past for all that steps except the 2

PD: I have to say step 4 is completely HORRIBLE

I didn't go through those stages. It was just, "Hey, this is a fun series with ponies. Watch it with us!" and it immediately went to the Acceptance phase. The show reminds me a lot of the Tiny Titans comic and I'm a sucker for cute things so it was inevitable I would become a... pegasister is what they call female fans now?

My stages were more like; confusion (is this a joke or something?) --> curiosity (come at me youtube) --> astonishment (holy crap, these characters are great!) --> acceptance (hang on, is that "Q" from Star Trek? ...THIS IS AWESOME!).

@Newten: Audience isn't ready yet

@Anzendenai: Until we live in a world where people aren't ridiculed for the things they like, I don't think the public will ever be "ready" for things like Friendship is Magic. People in general are becoming more and more open-minded as the years go by though, which is good.

I still don't know what "violent behaviour" you were talking about though, and this show is way too popular to get cancelled any time soon.

I passed those five stages in one swift moment... You can still find my tweets about it on my twitter.

Watch this(this is where violent part figurates)

And being childish doesn't always mean open-mindness

Your video isn't working. Also, I think Newten meant open-mindedness as in people accepting what others like despite it not being what they themselves consider the norm. So, I'm honestly not sure what you mean by "And being childish doesn't always mean open-mindness."

I accept the show and agree it is a fun show.

I forget how I discovered the show. I think someone must have linked to the 4chan cartoon boards, which is where the whole thing sort of took off, and then I sort of jumped into the show and the memes all at once. After season 1 ended, I went on a pretty serious fan-fiction binge, mostly Luna or Derpy stories. Now that we're past halfway in season 2, I think the show just keeps getting better :D
