My Little Brony

Michelle has called into the show about her boyfriend Adam. She has a 12-year-son named Charlie from a previous relationship. Charlie’s bio dad is no longer in the picture, and Michelle says Adam has been a good second father to Charlie and Charlie adores him. But now she says Adam has started being really hard on Charlie for his hobbies. Michelle says Charlie is a really creative boy and he loves Anime, My Little Pony, and dressing up, including dressing up like My Little Pony sometimes. Adam says he himself doesn’t have a problem with Charlie’s hobbies but he’s very worried about how he will be treated when he gets to middle school. Adam says doesn’t want him bullied and understands a lot more about how the other boys will treat him than Michelle because he was a teenage boy once. He wants Charlie to diversify his interests and be more “manly”.
