So, I have this problem:
I ordered an MLP shirt from WeLoveFine (and although it took an excruciating three and a half weeks to get to my house, that's not the issue here) and it just got here in the mail.
Problem is, I didn't know it said My Little Pony on the little shirt tag (figured it would say "WeLoveFine"). No doubt my mom is going to find it there eventually, whether I do the laundry or not, and ask me about it. How should I explain to her that I'm a brony, and what one is? I don't want to lie and say I didn't know it was a My Little Pony shirt; I plan on getting more merchandise in the future.
This wouldn't be so bad but my mom's not the most open minded person. I don't want her to tell the rest of my family out of concern and then everyone thinks I'm a weirdo. Could I just be overreacting? I've never had a "girly" kind of interest before, so I don't know how she would respond.
Anyway, share your own stories if you want. Oh, and I'm seventeen, by the way. Not a basement dweller if you were wondering.
TL;DR: Need advice on how to tell my mom I'm a brony.
