Well, depends on how many actors there are. If it's only the main six that that's a least a third. Granted that's still not a majority but we're getting to the point of splitting hairs.

Honestly I never understood how "a couple" ,as in a couple of minutes, means 2 for some people. For me "a couple" is between 2 and 9.

I was actually taught that "a couple" meant "two" in school. Granted, I went to a private school that didn't use standard curriculum for most of my life. A loooooooooot o' sheeyit be different up in there.

A couple, strictly speaking, is two. Colloquially, though, it is used to mean a few. Kind of like how literally is rarely used in a literal fashion.

Merriam-Webster's online edition lists "couple" as, per the fourth definition, "an indefinite small number." Notably, the second definition is "pair, brace."

Yeah it's pretty much that I don't equate the word couple to mean two when not applied to say, a married couple or a dating couple, and just as a synonym to " a few" since that's what everybody else tends to use it for.

Kinda like how the word literally and irony are misused all the time to the point it's rare to see them used for their intended meanings.

How are bronies accepted outside the USA? Especially anywhere LGBT (or LGBTQ) is better accepted?
I've long assumed a lot of the brony hate comes from homophobia and the like. Every time I see someone post that bronies are sick freaks for liking a show for little girls, I mentally extend their argument to "What's next? Them liking other girly things? Them thinking they ARE girls?! Not on my watch!"
Some hate may stem from bad experiences with brony trolls, but I don't see that as an adequate reason to hate anyone and everyone associated with the fandom. Like this one military guy I met who thinks gays shouldn't be in the military because he once knew a really obnoxious jerk who was one, they're just using the experience as an excuse.

So yeah, is it better in other, more LGBT-tolerant nations?

I don't see much hate in the UK. There's one guy who likes to take pot-shots at me liking ponies, but at the same time he's your stereotypical overly aggressive Christian who preaches about every little thing possible and being a right cunt about it while thinking he's doing the good thing.
Other than that, I think it helps a lot that the UK has a lot less of the annoying bronies. You know, the ones who wear merch EVERYWHERE and do the whole 'brohoof' thing to strangers they see in merch.

There's of course the odd person who will take the chance to try rip on someone for it, but at least for me, most people are accepting. They know it's just a show at the end of the day and that end of the day, we all have things we enjoy and their opinion on the show isn't going to change my opinion unless they can pull a deus ex machina out of their ass and somehow convince me that they're right - but nobody actually tries that aside from one, perhaps two idiots like previously mentioned.

I can't really tell about how bronies are treated in Ukraine, since I'm not involved in local community.

As for me, I'm not really open about been a brony. My friends know though and they okay/whatever about it. Sometimes even send me good or funny mlp-related pics, but that's rare occasion.

I uh ...I brohoof strangers in brony clothes if I happen to be wearing brony clothes, which is probably like 1/4 of the time. Am I... am I part of the problem?

In all seriousness, though, I think I've only ever met one guy like that, but he was just always a bouncing off the walls in your face kind of person, if he wasn't a brony it just would have been something else.  I was friendly with him, but we didn't hang out much.
When I went to see Equestria Girls in theatres (for my little sister of course Applejack ) I was pleasantly surprised how well behaved the bronies were, especially considering there were about 150 people there and half were bronies.  Even when the film cut out in the middle for like ten minutes, they just played brony music on their phones and sat around for the most part. Ok one guy galloped up and down the stairs but that wasn't so bad.  

Also the guy that was galloping was a pretty big guy, upwards and outwards, and he was there with the shortest, most perfectly proportioned, little person I had ever seen. He was maybe three feet tall and had a high pitched voice, and afterwards in the hall they were debating something about the Crystal Empire and it was awesome.

I think I started to ramble off a little bit there, but my point was I haven't really met any super annoying bronies in real life before, I've only heard about them, mostly on the internet.  I'm either really lucky or, as I prefer to think, there are far less annoying bronies out there than the internet would have you believe.

Hold on. . Most of the hatred bronies get on the internet is the generic, "something is new so I must hate it" kneejerk reaction.  Since the internet has become just a daily fact of our lives it's the "cool" thing to hate new things.  Haven't you ever noticed by how try-hards always try to prove how "edgy" they are on the internet?

It doesn't have anything to do with homophobia.

What, why is "faggot" and "gay" considered a insult.  The two definitions for gay is either a happy person or a homosexual.  The two definitions for "faggot" is a cigarette and a homosexual person.  So by calling someone a "faggot" you're not actually insulting them you're calling them either happy, a cigarette, or a homosexual person.

"You're a cigarette!"
"You're a happy person!"

While calling someone a "faggot" can be insulting if you're intending to call them gay, but the thing is the people who use this term are either using it in a general sense of:


So in reality calling someone a fag either means you're calling them:
1)A happy person
2)A cigarette.
3)A extremely annoying inconsiderate person
4)A gay person.
The problem with number four though is that this insult started out by people who don't actually understand how human sexuality works other than penis goes in whole.  No seriously, almost every homophobe I know of either doesn't know anything about how sexuality works or they're paranoid of homosexuality in a extremely stupid manner.  A recent poll on gallup found that homophobes are afraid that gay people will flirt with them.  Which is kind of stupid when you think about it, cause the entire basis for the insult of calling someone gay is that they're afraid of someone flirting with them so they'll act like a total dillweed cause of it.

Tl:dr; Calling someone gay isn't actually insulting when you think about it and the insult " fag " is only really insulting if you're calling them a annoying inconsiderate person.

No, the reason people get upset when called gay or a faggot. Is the tone in which it is said and the context of the sentence.
