I am a closet brony, first of all because I don't know how to bring it up, also I doubt my family will really understand why I watch the tunjuk atau how I came across it, even if I showed them MLP FiM they'd probably still confuse it with the other generations of MLP. My friends, I think they would tease me about it while others might avoid me. I don't know how my schools public would react, but I wouldn't count on them being supportive. I wouldn't want a chance to have to deal with all that.
I am an open brony to those I care about, and a closet one to everybody else. I've seen ridiculous arguments and hatred sparked from somebody mentioning MLP, so to spare myself from that negativity I keep it on the down-low unless I'm with pleasant company.
I'm a closet brony. Only my best friend knows about my kuda, kuda kecil addiction. I even made him to like kuda, kuda kecil music. but the rest of my world is not ready to accept it. Although sometimes I do like to tunjuk off in a custom MLP T-shirt on the street; it's fun to observe people's faces and how they react to it.
I think my Dad knows too. He once caught me drawing ponies and recently, he found one of my drawings I accidentally left on bahagian, atas of the scanner and he berkata it was pretty good. :)
