I sent this off to a dozen moderators, asking if there was any issues. I sent this two weeks ago. I am going to assume that the lack of people saying no means that there is no issues with this. 

 

Hello. I am a student attending a IB school in the Washington DC area. Before we can graduate, Everyone in the program has to complete what is known as a "personal project", which is unique because we can do one on pretty much anything (Although my friend's idea to grow pot was rejected on the grounds that that's illegal in this state)

After having much difficulty trying to figure out what to do my project on (my other ideas were rejected on the fact that charity fraud is illegal in every state), I remembered a old friend of mine, who was a Brony. So I decided that I should do my project on bronies and Brony Culture. 

I have some questions, ***ALL OF WHICH ARE OPTIONAL***. That means you don't have to answer the ones you don't want to, and I won't hold it against you. 

GENERAL STUFF

1. How old are you?

2. Which city / Region do you live in? 

If you are outside of the US / CAN, which country?

3. What is your Height?

4. Weight?

5. How do you normally dress?

6. Do you live alone or with someone else?

If you live with someone else, who?

7. How long is your Hair?
Beard?

SOCIAL:

8. Would you consider yourself successful at making Male friends IRL?

9. Female Friends?

On that note, are you in a relationship?

10. What about online friends?

ACADEMIC:

11. How did you like High School?

12. What was your GPA?

13. What was your favorite class / Classes?

14. Least Favorite?

15. Do you have a job?

Doing What?

How much money do you make?

SHOW HABITS:

16. How did you first hear about MLP?

16. How old were you?

17. How old were you when you started to watch the show seriously?

18. How much time do you spend a week watching MLP?

SHOW RELATED:

20. Do you ever cosplay?

21. Do you own any pony toys, plushies, blankets, or related?

22. Do you write fan fictions about it?

23. Do you make fan art?

OTHER:

24. There is most certainly a social stigma surrounding MLP. Do you get hated on? 

How often?

What is your response when that happens?

25. There are several sites dedicated to mocking people who watch MLP. What are your thoughts on them?

Have you ever visited them?

 

QUESTIONS I FORGOT TO INCLUDE IN THE FIRST SURVEY:

1. What is your religion?

2. Sexual Orientation?

3. Why do you like the show?

4. Have you told anyone else about the show? (Online and in person)

Thanks for your help. If you are interested, send me a email at aal39093@gmail.com (Spam email with a autoforward), and I'll update you when the project is finished. 

PS: In my general research and the fact that they are bronies, I am assuming you are male. If you are not, please say so.
