This was so epic, I had to create my first Canterlot Blog to share it! Just got back today from a trip to my parents and not only quickly got outed as a Brony without any drama, it turns out they were kinda expecting it... While they already knew I was an equine fur, I could not guess their reaction beyond that. We already had the CSI furry freakout 2 years ago with a looooong talk about the truth , so this time was a pleasant surprise. They have permanent custody of my 9 year old neice. Their little Pegasister was so excited I was going to be there this week because in my last trip, 2 years ago, I drew her a Pony that turned out to look just like FiM ponies. Before I knew it, I was openly sharing my MLP song and video collection onto the family computer. mum and dad were quite floored by "The Garden", "Daddy Discord", and "Or we can fly" being done by fans. Afterward, my neice wanted herself and a friend drawn as pegasus foals. This soon led to a ponified family portrait of her, my parents and myself. My parents will be framing the originals and hanging them up.
...Remember a while back when I told you about my Dad and Step-Mom thinking Bronies had to do with pedophilia and didn't want me to be any part of it? Remember when I said they were clear and fine with it after talking to them? Haha. No. What occurred last night assured me they haven't changed. I was talking to my 13-year old cousin, and he mentioned his girlfriend "watched My Little Pony". I was a bit surprised, but had known before (I had said "Derp" a month or so before, and he followed it up with "Derpy", and then "Derpy Hooves", citing his girlfriend for knowing about Derpy). So, I began recommending he give the show a watch some time. I said it innocently, wanting to show him the same quality show I had grown to love. I said NOTHING about Bronies, and simply told him it was great that his girlfriend was a self-proclaimed Brony, and that he should watch the show some time. It was right around when I began to tell him when the show was on during the day that my Step-Mom entered the room. She came in, DEAD-EYED at me, and told me: "I heard what you said. You're in dangerous territory now." Needless to say, I was a bit confused. I knew what she was talking about, but I still couldn't believe she had just said that. Did...she just yell at me for telling my cousin about the show? But wait....IT GETS BETTER... 15 minutes later upstairs, my cousin goes to the bathroom. My Step-Mom then waltzes in, and tells me, and I quote: "Don't fill your cousin's head with that Brony crap. And if you ever mention anything Brony-related again, you're going to be in BIG trouble..." ...I.....I don't know what to say... I can't even ask you guys to send messages or anything at this point. My good friend and fellow-Brony and member Hayden (ChillzMaster on here) offered to come to my house and tell my Dad and Step-Mom like it was, but I knew that'd make things worse. I don't know why she hates Bronies. I don't know why she won't allow me to BE a Brony. I don't know why she can't accept it like my Mom has so well. My mom has let me go to BronyCon, make great friends because of it, buy merchandise purely because I was a Brony, and has supported me through all this. She even told me she wouldn't blame me if I never talked to my Step-Mom again... ...Guys, while I can say I feel sour about it...I don't want my family torn about this because I'm a Brony...it will hurt everyone around me, but mostly me. I can't help but feel I tearing stuff apart because of this... I'm begging you guys...begging not just to send messages this time...because that doesn't work, apparently. My mom and I thought we proved it to them that Bronies were great people. I can simply tell them that too, but I'm sure they don't want to hear about my "Brony crap"... ...which is why I'm asking that you find some sort of way to spread this. This is not me crying for attention. I'm crying out for help, because I want to show my Step-Mom and Dad that being a Brony is sinful. I want to be able to show the same show that has shown me the magic of being a better person, and what the ideals of friendship can learn. If I can't tell my cousin, who has HAD trouble in his life, about this excellent show that helped me out of a rut in my life, then what can I do? I'm asking you, fellas...to get this to far reaches. Get the biggest supporters around on this story. People related with EqD or...heck, someone like Tara or...I DON'T KNOW! I'm bawling my eyes out right now because I don't want to hate my family members! I love my Dad and Step-Mom! I don't want to hate them! But if myself, my mom, a whole forum can't prove that to them, then I NEED the biggest support I can get! ...I just need help, guys....I seriously need some help...
Well, I'm certainly in a huff. To explain: Recently, my Dad and stepmom contacted my mom, apparently "concerned" about me being a Brony and being involved with something relating to pedophilia... Now, how this began is quite odd. Apparently, they reached someone related to them who was friends with me on Facebook, who knew of me being a Brony. Not only that, but they believe that the fandom is completely compromised of older fans, 20-50 year olds. Not only this, but they believe that the fandom is related to pedophilia and think that 15-year olds like me should NOT be a part of the Brony fandom... Not only this, but apparently this'll influence the decision of whether or not I can go to Bronycon with my friend or not... ...what they seem to think is that it's connected to pedophiles, and that it's "unsafe" in some way. According to what I'm being told, I only have until tomorrow before they come over to..."discuss" this and likely try to keep me from ever being a part of this fandom again... I showed my mom Equestria Daily, FiMFiction and explained EVERY SINGLE POSITIVE POINT, along with the acknowledgment of the bad side. She's at least understanding...but how I'm going to convince them, I don't know. I need some serious help, guys....HELP ME STAY APART OF THIS FANDOM...I mean, I need the POSITIVES of the fandom. The art, the literature, the way the community helps charities! I know this fandom is good, and only good. If I can't show them that, I need you guys to help me show them that! ...I plan to show them this thread if I get enough support....I just don't know how to react.... ...I could be just two days from exiting this fandom forever...
