No worries.  I'm assuming he's young.  It's just the colors that has his attention.  You can easily replace it with brightly colored video games.  We've all been there.

If I may, I suggest Dungeon Defenders.  You'll have fun for a while and it's very colorful.

Whatever you do, do not show him the brony threads on this forum.

Don't get after him too much for it. If he thinks you or anyone else is really bothered by it he'll make it an even bigger part of his identity just to test the limits.

The brony friends I have sometimes say they like it because it reminds them of old school cartoons that aren't around anymore. Maybe introduce him to something actually old school and more masculine, like G1 transformers or something, to try and subtly get him off it.

Pretty much this. Especially introducing him to Thundercats/ Transformers

 

Perhaps even old-school anime like Gundam Wing?

Lord Xia started out as a brony... see what you have to look forward to?  He'll want lavendar ponies in his video games.

When my dad caught me playing with ponies he locked me a stable for a week.

Well said. For our own kids, we decided long ago that if it ain't illegal, let them go ahead. Doesn't mean we didn't teach manners and such, we run a pretty strict shop. But judging or trying to decide for your kid what he wants is out.

Not worry about it.  Some argue it's 'odd' but there's a heck of a lot of 'worse' things he could 'be'....

He'll probably get over it by himself. But it might mean he's lacking in social interaction, a lot of bronies are. If that's the case, try getting him into some organized group that he'll enjoy - a sport would be the traditional example of this but any activity in a group setting is fine. Whatever you do though, don't make a big deal about it.

Add more types of ponies to FE so he can be proud of you!

You have my condolences as well. Not exactly the thing I'd want my kid involved with. But sign him up for baseball or some manly sport quick or get him to a strip club quick!!
