Of course it's for the lulz, since you'll obviously never have the chance to use 'em.
Perhaps that is true, but as a gamer you are lacking in finer taste.
I am an awesome brony.
I'd save not. While we all classify ourselves generally as gamers, but you guys take it further and identify yourselves by one TV show, intended for a different audience. Another thought that comes to mind are Trekkies, but even they have a better excuse for their fanatism than you guys.
Then why did you feel the need to defend your integrity by claiming you're an "awesome" brony?
