Guys, guys, guys... xD Coming out as a BRONY will seem like ya'll gay af. You don't.. Come OUT with a hobby or anything, why would my parents care about what I watch on TV or the internet? It's not their business, like they don't come out about what PORN they watch or whatever, it's not important. Unless you wanna express yourself with it, put things with MLP on your car or whatever, but why would it really matter to tell anyone? IF they ask, then sure, tell them. Otherwise I really don't see the point in telling anyone about interests or hobbies or shows I like to watch unless it's someone with common interests or if they're like a friend of mine who I know would like it too.
I just don't see why it'd be a need to do that. It's not that odd that parents think you're coming out as homosexuals or whatever it is by saying you like pastel ponies, like... Usually people don't COME OUT with their interests and make it a big deal? XD Just thinking... I don't blame them for assuming something.
I myself am a gay girl so, even that I didn't need to come out with. If people ask, I'll say yes indeed. If they don't ask, then.. They're probably just not interested in my sexuality so why would I even care to tell them? You know?? My own business.. Same with being a brony/pegasister, whatever.. It's not a big deal. Just an interest.
