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!

Damn, people are still commenting on my question from 3 years ago? Wow.

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.

Dude, that is so true. But seriously, what is it with parents these days!?! It's like, they don't want us to have a life. I mean, c'mon, it's OUR lives. Yeah thanks for bringing me into this world but, it's my body, I control it, not u dad.

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

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 :)

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.

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

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 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.

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

I'm very lucky. Both of my parents support my Bronydom. Well, my father all-out supports me and my creative ideas for the show, and my mom doesn't care at all. My brother can be a butt when he teases me about it, but that's just him. :)

So, I gradually became a brony, but my dad is pretty cool and didn't care. He actually encourages all the weird stuff I do, as long as I don't let anyone tell me it's wrong. He even gave it a chance by watching it and thought it was alright. (I guess he thinks Applejack is hilarious...) Like my fanart, he never tries to say I should put my talents to use elsewhere. Heck, he didn't even care that my little brother watches it with me! (Sorry this was so rambly)

My dad (who, I should probably mention, is 44 years old, Christian and ex-Navy), walked through the living room and saw it on, my brother said it was a good show, and he said "I'm sure it is" in a non-sarcastic way.

My mom knows, but I don't think she really cares, I don't think my dad knows, but if he does, then he's not paying any mind to it. I'm trying to get my younger brother to watch the show, but he keeps refusing. I have no idea if my older brother knows, either, but he also probably doesn't care.

I told my mom I was a brony and she didn't seem to approve but I think she'll come around. My friends at school don't care. I have no siblings and I won't tell my dad. I play hockey as a bit of an enforcer. I am a tough guy so people should know not to tease me. I find it hilarious to start punching someone in hockey with a My Little Pony bracelet on by wrist. I used to be very shy and easily embarrassed. This summer I started watching MLP FIM and it made me happier. I now get better grades in school thanks to the show (and Sean Avery ) I no longer care what people think of me and I am a much happier person. That is why I'm a brony.

Wow I envy everyone who is open about it. Here is my situation: I am a brony, though not the crazy, obsessing, life-revolves-around-MLP kind. I have a brony friend who is "trying" to turn my into a brony, but he doesn't know that I already am. I have other friends who are not, and just kinda don't care about bronies, and just go on with their lives (If they knew I'm a brony, they might actually care, though). I also have a few friends who would stab me to death and/or give me crap about it for the rest of my life if they knew. My parents would think I am going insane and would put me through therapy. No one that I know in person knows that I'm a brony. However, I fear that one of my friends is on to me, and if he knows, then it is only a matter of time before everyone does.

Holy cow. That's like a chain of fire that gets bigger by the minute….I don't know about your situation, but I don't think it was a good idea for you to tell any member of your family. It was a disaster waiting to happen. If you are being made fun of for liking an awesome show with ponies in it, feel free to stop by my profile page. It's like a safe house-no one will ever know you were talking with another brony. I'm a guy, so if you are having any problems in regards to liking the show, be sure to visit, ok, Sugarcube? I added a nice quote from AJ just to help you feel better. Rememember, you have over a dozen bronies/pegasisters that got your back.

When I told my parents they acted like it was a normal thing for a kid my age. My sisters, on the other hand sort of made fun of me until one of them caught me watching a PMV and just sat there, watching it with me. My other sister just asks if I'm liking it then walks away, but another sister (I have 4 sisters) makes fun of me still. My friends thought it a little weird, but they soon got used to me talking about it. My family used to make fun of bronies until they found out I was a Pegasister and they instantly stopped talking about it over all.

I'm posting a comment on my own thing, but I spout out different MLP references here and there and no one seems to notice until they ask me what it's from. One time I sang This Day Aria at a family Christmas party, and everyone asked me what it was from and I got really nervous, so now my whole family knows I'm a Pegasister.

Well, I'm a pre-teen, I'll be 12 soon.... Anyways, my dad was fine with it, and accepts it. He even gives me ideas on my drawings of MLP. He also gave me a poster board and told me to print out things of MLP and put them on there, so I can hang it on my room. ^-^ My mom thinks MLP is cute, and she also accepts that I like it. She buys me MLP merchandise sometimes, too. As for my sister and brother... They say I'm obsessed. My sister works at Hot Topic, so she sometimes buys me things of MLP. She is also fine with it. That's pretty much it.

"Show for little girls"? HA! That makes me laugh every time! If you happen to catch anything suggestive or down-to-earth actiony, you'll see it is not a show for little girls anymore. Ever see the fight between Princess Twilight and Tirek in the season 4 finale? If you haven't seen it, I'm sorry for spoiling it. But it's got some DBZ-like action going on there!

Mine looked at me with humorous disappointment. Without even watching it themselves they label it as "a baby show." They can think whatever they want. I know the show has substance that can inspire people of any age in everyday life situations.

I was likely one while I was in high school and didn't even know who the characters were. I made six first-time drawings of the mane six (one for each drawing) and also added the logo as best as I could. I even added a drawing of AppleBloom and Princess Celestia (even though both the first and second attempts didn't go well) I had no idea where any of these characters came from, though I learned the show's name, but I still didn't know much about it. I kept these drawings hidden in my binder, and started watching a few episodes a long way after I graduated. It was at that point I realized what brony was through the internet at some point-and that I became one as well.

When my parents found out that I was a Brony, it was my dad who was okay with it. He didn't like that I was one, but he respected it. And he's taking me to BronyCon 2015. But, it was my mom who despised it. When I told her, she flipped out on me, even after years of her telling me to be myself and let no one else change me, even though she just told me to change myself. My name is Soul (Dragon-Star), and I've been a Brony for 2 1/2 years. I'm 15, and my mom doesn't like that I'm a Brony....what do I do...?

The first time my dad found out I was a brony was when I bought a t-shirt with mlp on it. When he found out I had it he became infuriated and even went so far to as it me. He yelled at me and said that I was going to burn in h**l for watching it because he said I was gay, even though I am not. Eventually I found the best way to continue to be a brony was to hide it from him.

i'm just a big fan and i really love the dolls. plus, more stuff for me to do than what i can do with my plain, old ones.
