An incredibly macho manly-man has found himself questioning his own reality today when he accidentally encountered something he found incredibly arousing, that also happened to be pony related. Sources confirm that Mark Vandergooch has been in the fetal position on his bathroom floor, crying for the past 7 hours, in an apparent identity crisis.
"How is it possible? Only fags like that pony shit." sobbed Vandergooch into his whey protein milkshake and stack of male fitness magazines featuring men in little more than g-strings. His interest in ponies was triggered by an image that showed up in his Twitter feed of a girl in Fluttershy panties.
An unauthorized monitoring software placed on Mark's laptop confirms that the many hours he once spent looking at pictures of muscular men with well-oiled and toned bodies in various states of workout have been replaced by looking at pictures of scantily-clad women dressed in pony attire. His friends comment that Mark is "totally gay now" for being interested in "that pony shit" and that they no longer feel comfortable sharing the gym locker room with him.
Despite the fact that the subjects of the images are all of the opposite sex, Mark is certain that the fact that they are pony-related is an indication of his own hidden homosexual tendencies,
At press-time, Mark had just been given a link to Derpibooru's unfiltered "top scoring" page, which has prompted him to call a family meeting in which he plans to "come out of the closet".
