As a currently pledging member of an unnamed fraternity, I have to put up with a lot of shit. It's why I can barely move, my ass hurts, and why I haven't been writing for months at a time. In the end though, the experiences with your brothers are ones that will last you a life time, as does the reputation as a rapist. So it's no wonder that an official fraternity of Bronies will colonize its first chapter starting in the Spring at Boise State University, home of the Broncos.
In the Fraternity community there's a list of things that simply don't belong. Betraying your brothers, ignoring traditions, sobriety, sexual consent, brown people, and at the very top is My Little Pony. It seems a few classy gentlemen at Boise State seem to disagree, as they've developed their own fraternity known as Kappa Upsilon Mu (KYM).
The group officially formed last year during the hiatus in order to pass the time. Fraternity founders Will Barnett and Benjamin Waters originally started the concept as a joke, with Barnett stating "we didn't take it seriously at first at all, more like a club than a frat."
That club would grow to a size they didn't imagine possible: 34 members.

With the mass interest shown in their new group, the two filed with the state of Idaho in August to officially gain recognition as a fraternity. And they got their answer last week. The crew of of 34 men will begin rushing pledges starting spring of 2016, which they expect to see decent numbers.
When asked about what rituals and lessons such a...unique fraternity would inflict on their pledges, both men really don't know what to do.
"Whatever it is, it will involve a horse and some hand lotion," Waters said, nearly salivating.
"Elephant walks. But with pony ears," said Barnett.

The group hopes to spread their name to other campuses and developing new chapters, starting with Idaho campuses and later spreading nationwide. Good luck KYM. And make sure your keep your fucking pledges quiet about the ceremonies. And the strippers. And the hospital. And the NAACP.
