Also, I propose that we refer to female bronies as bronitas.I guess that'd work, I'd go with Bronettes but then again that has nothing to do with ponies.
I don't think we need a word for a female MLP fan. One reason the word brony was created was because before FIM, MLP was really just a marketing ploy aimed at little girls, the idea of a grown man being a fan was really seemed to contrast the audience of the MLP franchise (Before FIM) and because of that it was really distinct.
If FIM never existed, it would be ok and and not really out of the ordinary for a female to like MLP. There's the Nostalgia value if she grew up with it, and just the general attitude and tone of the show, which women may find "cute".
On top of this, creating a "brony word" for women may fuel the idea of this being a meme due to the (incorrectly assumed) idea that brony is a meme, which is something I really don't want.
