Closet brony or open brony? in Pony Free Posts Posted July 14, 2017 · Report reply @LostSanity If you're afraid of a friends reaction it's normally because you don't know them that well or you know how they will react and don't like it. It's still better to tell them, that way you'll find out if they accept you for who you are. If not, then congratulations, you now know they're jerks and won't make good friends. This way you don't waste your time with them and can spend it finding better ones.
