So I became a brony about 2 weeks ago, and have watched all episodes since. Not only do I love the show, but I really want to find out how many people I know are bronies in disguise. Not only is my school full of people who go on places like 4chan, reddit, and other places that computer-addicted people (like myself) go on, but someone I know has specifically mentioned MLP to me. (before I was a brony) There is also a picture of a hand-drawn Rarity on the wall.

 

Here's a copy/paste of what I wrote up. Don't worry, there's a TL;DR at the end if you really don't like reading. (but why would you be on a forum anyway?)

 

EDIT: Thought you would like to know that I'm a sophomore in high school and that I'm a guy

 

(super cool story time) So I've recently joined the herd. I

 

saw many comics posted on funnyjunk and some other places,

 

and I wanted to see it before making fun of it. Before I

 

did, one of my friends mentioned wearing a MLP shirt to

 

school. I really didn't think much of it, but didn't make

 

fun of him for it either. After watching the first two

 

episodes out of curiousity, I went to sleep. I woke up and

 

watched two more before going to school. I liked it.

 

Two weeks later, I completely caught up with the show. I

 

don't know whether or not he is even aware of the show's

 

existance, but I'd assume so. Today, I looked on my steam

 

friends list to realize that someone I barely know from

 

school has a picture of Pinkie Pie as his picture. I wasn't

 

sure who it was at the time, as he didn't mention his name

 

anywhere on his steam account, and I haden't talked to him

 

for over two months.

 

After googling his steam name, I found out he who he was

 

and that he's completely open with being a brony on

 

facebook. In fact, some not-so-close friends of mine posted

 

MLP youtube videos on their facebook walls too. None of

 

them got harassed for doing it, and this is where I come

 

in.

 

TL;DR: Nobody knows I watch MLP, but some of them seem to

 

know what it is. How do you suppose I tell my friends I

 

watch MLP without it being questioned?

Wait, being questioned about what?

 

 

And you probably don't know many, if any bronies in disguise considering that in the census of the herd, it said that only 21% of bronies are closet bronies.

Oh, and as customary of me, since you are new to the herd, you get this:

*wishes it was 20%*

Well considering at least two people I know are semi-closet bronies and one might be, I might have a chance. What do you think is the easiest way to ask someone who is aware of the show if they are in fact a brony?

 

If you happen to have any sort of MLP:FiM shirts laying around you could just wear one of those. Or there are buttons that say Brony on them you could pick up, i doubt they're very expensive.

 

Well I'd rather not tell my family until it's a little more mainstream. (South Park... please make it happen! Season premiere is in 41:30 and counting)

Hi Ert. My advice to you is tell your friends as soon as possible- I can tell you from experience that the longer try to you hide it, the harder it will be to tell, but you'll feel a lot better once you get it over with- it's not like it's taboo or anything! Besides, you want to spread the word about this awesome show, don't you? Besides, like you said some of your friends might be bronies already! Good luck, and welcome to the forums! :)

Wow! Interesting stories... I wonder how could a school be filled with all bronies... I want to go there. Well, I am glad you got hooked on the show so quickly, a great show huh? Well, welcome to the forums!

Thanks. I wouldn't say it's filled with bronies, but everybody at the school seems to be pretty tolerant of everything. It's socially unacceptable to use "gay" or "retarded" as insults, and people who have mental disabilities can easily hang out with those without.

You could just ask them the question "Are you a brony?"

Sounds simple enough to me.

OPERATION TELL FRIENDS = SUCCESS

1: Link them to the KnowYourMeme video

2: Make them watch episode 1

3: ???

4: Profit!

 

Friend 1: "You know this will be my life from now on"

Friend 2: "Same here"

Me: "Knew it"
