Dear Lady Fluffy Beaver,
My boyfriend is a Brony, should I be worried about this?
Yours in confusion
Why would you be worried? In fact, I’m jealous because it’s highly likely that your boyf attended Bronycon in August, which means he got to prance around neighing to all the bands at the BronyPalooza concert.
For those not in the know, a brony is a male fan of the TV cartoon series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The portmanteau word ‘brony’ is a mix of ‘pony’ and ‘bro’, geddit?
If you’d like to understand bronyism better, try watching the doco Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony or just check out the excellent site What is a Brony which also has several videos.
In essence, Kat, you should buy yourself a brony-pride t-shirt, a pink glitter gel curry comb for him, get matching cutie marks for the both of you, and get over it.
Yours in brony solidarity,
