Today I went out to the mall to **** around, and ended up in Hot Topic and Spencer's. Before I continue, I almost always can't say no, so I conform to a lot of people. I've kept the fact that I'm a brony secret for a long time, ever since I realized it. I didn't know why, but I came out of the mall with a brony lanyard and card, a G36C keychain, a button that says "In case of Zombie Apocalypse, follow me" and 25 dollars short. I stuck the gun to my backpack, and pinned the button to the back of my bag as well. I decided "**** it" and stuck the brony card onto my bag next to the button, for the world to see. I let the brony lanyard hang from my pocket, too.
As I rode out of the parking lot on my Yamaha XT250 On/Offroad, I felt more alive than I'd ever felt in my life. I expressed my individuality, and didn't care who behind me happened to see a big card on my backpack that said "brony" and had a picture of rainbow dash on it.
I was me, for once.
I want to thank you, bronies, male or female. You helped me realize that opinions don't matter. You're only happy as yourself, and no one can fit in your shoes.
