My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Question

For you teenagers out there like me, how did your parents react to your being a brony/pegasister?

For, example, my dad didn't know what the problem was, but my mom banned me from watching it ever again. Kinda backwards to me but, yeah... anyway. After I got caught watching PMVs on Fanpop, :), I can finally watch it again, Yeah, that's the short version. Anyways, answer away!

I am a Brony in secret..

My parents and friends probably won't care, I'm not the obsessive or creepy kind.
But I still don't like OPENLY revealing to it, I am very sensitive to teasing

this is the best way to tell them: BEST WAY- go into where ever u watch it and leave my little pony on the tv. eventually when ur parents finnally see it ussually they wont really care and just shrug and walk away. its much better than just going MOM IM A BRONY-A WHAT?-A BRONY-WHATS DAT?-A BOY WHO WATCHES MLP-UR FREAKIN GAY eyup

I drew pictures of the main six and Spike. Even took on Celestia and Applebloom! Yep, that says I'm a brony, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

My parents are used to me and my sister acting like weirdos so they didn't really mind. At first my friends kind of made fun of the show, but now they're used to it and one of them even watches it, but isn't exactly a brony. And I'm proud to tell people I'm a brony, I even found a couple at school :)

If just WATCHING as a show, dosen't make a full Brony, then, I guess I'm not

I wish I could tell my friends I like My Little Pony, but that's a little too risky! Facebook is the danger zone for telling secrets!

I don't understand it. My parents are trying to ban me from watching My Little Pony. They tell me its for litltle girls repeatedly. Yes I know I'm 18 but this show has become a part of my personality. I think its awesome and I've watched all 3 seasons. I've downloaded over a hundred pictures and every time I leave my phone somewhere, my mother snoops into my phone and deletes all my pictures and everything involved with MLP. She's asked me if I was gay, which pissed me off(I am straight btw) and afterwards, she starts shouting at me about how it's time to grow up! I'm sick and tired of this. I can't wait to get out of the house to live on my own so my parents will stop bugging me. This is MY life and for once, I've found something that interests me and my parents won't accept it.

The reason I think it's backwards that my dad was fine with it is because he's not a brony, but he doesn't care if I watch it.

I'm turning thirteen in March so I guess I'm, technically, a teen.

My mom reacted very calmly and she decided to give the show a try. She really likes it but doesn't watch it very often.

My dad, well, let's just say that I tried to turn him into a brony but he refused.

Same with my brother. He believes in Bigfoot (very stupid in my opinion) and he gave the show a chance. Twice. And he lied about liking the show. TWICE. And now, he did it again. My little brother is only nine years old but acts like a non-caring teenager.

At least your family gave it a chance. My little sister promised to give it a try over a month ago and still hasn't. Then she found out some of her older friends who are actually my age are pegasisters so she pretended to like it, but afterwords, started making fun of me for liking a "girly" show, even after I told her some of her favorite voice actors/actresses are in it.

Well, I haven't told my mom yet. I told my two brothers, and they just rejected the show altogether. Neither of them will even bother to watch it. One of them (who is also my twin, mind you) insults me about it without even giving the show a try. The other one, who is two years older than me, doesnt really care.

At first, I watched it in secret, but finally I told my family about it... My dad was really confused, and my mom was surprised, but thought it's kinda cute. Recently I got my mom to watch a few episodes with me. She actually kinda liked it! But she still doesn't understand why I'm so obsessed with it. My dad, on the other hand, cannot stand anything to do with MLP, so I sing songs like "Cupcakes" just to tease him. XD

Me: It's a guy who likes and watches My Little Pony.
Mum: Why would you watch that, it's a show for little girls! (stereotype)
Me: Well, would you rather I go watch Texas Chainsaw Massacre or something like that?

Me and my mum hate real gory films, so I'll have to wait and see what happens. (mwah hah hah!)

Well my dad thought there was something wrong with me, so he decided to have a long talk with me. He kept asking me why I like that show. But he decided to ask me something that pissed me off: "Are you watching that show because your still sad that mom died?" I just yelled back at him saying "NO! THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MOM! I WATCH MLP:FiM BECAUSE I LIKE THE SHOW!" Then i told him about the brony fandom, and he was a little more calm. We talk more and then we finally stopped and he was ok about me being a brony. My sister, who has down syndrome, however, greatly rejected me saying, "YOUR NOT WATCH PONIES, THATS FOR GIRLS NOT BOYS!" But I decided not to argue with her. So yeah thats my story.

My mother pretty much discovered suddenly while I was out of school (she found my Brony bracelet hidden in my room while cleaning), so I don't really know her instant reaction. However, she acted like it was okay with her, like it wasn't a huge deal. I mean, at least I don't still watch Dora or whatever, you know? XD

My dad doesn't know, and quite frankly, I'd rather he didn't. I can't imagine his reaction... while it's probably more awkward for guys to deal with their father knowing, it'd be pretty weird for me for him to find out.

Mom found out. She never watched it. She called it satanic and was trying to convince me that I was brainwashed. She only saw the "Welcome to the Herd" meme with pinkie pie. She genuinely believes that the only reasons you would like the only reason you would like the show is if you are gay, a rapist, a child molester, or little girls. She says satan is smart and looks to catch us in something harmless... Soooooooo Satan wants to turn people evil by watching ponies who learn about friendship and/or love. She says "you don't like that show anymore" just that. She decided for me. She doesn't remember, Satan brings short lived pleasure, but when I hear Pinkie Pie sing I feel good for the rest of the day. When I smile through the halls of school, people give me weird looks like "what is he so happy about?" And sometimes I make them happy. I keep on meeting new bronies and pegasisters everyday and they look as happy as I do.

My brother keeps raging about it and saying "OMG BRONIES HAVE NO JOB OR LIVES" when he wastes MORE time watching anime. (Especially FullMetal Alchemist, a show with the opposite message.) And he has no friends.

My mom likes the show, but doesn't like my involvement in draining the hater community.

Haven't told dad yet, but I can imagine the response: A series of (Jewish, although i'm Prodistent- Christian) gay "Cures" that all end in "I'm not gay."

My mother thinks the show is rather clever and watches it with me often, but she's still not too keen on the fact grown men love the show. She's actually very disturbed/disgusted by such lol. As for my older sister, she's entirely against the fact I'm a brony, saying I need to grow up. But she doesn't seem to care about me expressing my passion for the show, as long as it's not around her. And my father? I have no idea what he thinks..he just stays quiet most of the time. Welp, at least my mom supports me somewhat on my love for ponies.

"Okay, you know you had my My Little Ponies when you were a baby, right? So you've kinda liked them a lot longer than you realized..."

I was a little flabbergasted at that point but thought it was pretty cool.

My dad is homophobic, though he won't admit it, and I have been looking for a way to tell him that also explains bronies a bit. If I have backup information on the fact that bronies are in fact, normal, he won't have a problem with it. Just the way he is...

I wanted to start watching it really! xD I halfway don't want to tell my mom because of her might saying "Yeah but, dont you think it's a little girls show only? I'll watch them on my phone anyway. I drew fluttershy afew months ago. And once she saw it, she didn't say anything. My oldest brother though, gets annoyed of them abit. So, once he saw it he said "God! Why did you draw one of those Ponys? I thought you grew up more than that. q.q I figured it's okay. I meen atleast it's not a bad show filled with cussing, etc. I am a girl after all ! I dont see how it matters p. o My mom and me walked down a toy section in Walmart, and they had them and she said "Haha! Every time i see those i'm going to think of that one you drew." Doesen't sound like "your too old" she didn't seem to mind much. o. o about 2 years ago, i talk about the winx to her and she did say that it seems for younger girls. But i started watching it and she didn't say a thing. xO i also watched a gothic cartoon called "Ruby Gloom" around then that my dad shown me. I was afraid she'd say it again but she didn't. Maybe afew weeks ago i mentioned how i never finished watching it. She said well, why don't you watch it over? I would say it's not that known but, i imagine it's originally built same age for MLPFIM, Their are women who've watched Ruby Gloom. I'm Fiftteen btw. xD Any opinions? :0
