Anonymous asked: lol another "anti feminist" pony fan God you people are fucking disgusting. Stop fucking watching a show for little girls and mangling it into your bigoted belief system. Stop being degenerate horse-ass fetishists. Get the fuck out of your mommy's basement, get a fucking job and maybe shower for once in your life you fucking smegma-caked neckbeard pedophile.
Said the probably-an-entitled-teenaged-girl still living with her parents, and likely without a job, to the 5’4”, 31-year-old French/Lebanese midwestern woman house painter living in a cozy suburb that grew up with My Little Pony in the 80’s, knows its origins as a show intended by the original creator to be an adventure series for both boys and girls, and used to be just as misguided as an “activist” when she was younger, but came to see the way in which the term “feminism” is being abused by young radicals as a guise under which to practice the same level of hatred and sexism they claim to be against.
I’m not really sure how MLP is “meant for boys”. Boys can watch them, but that doesn’t mean the show was meant for boys. The show is mainly for girls and their parents. But, of course, that doesn’t mean boys can’t watch them either. It just means that the show was never meant for boys. :/
Sweetie…I’m referring to the original series from the 80’s. Bonnie Zacherle had, in fact, intended it to be an adventure series for both girls, and boys. She has stated this herself. It was Hasbro that chose to market it exclusively to girls (it was also Hasbro’s directing the storyline to revolve around the toys (rather than the other way around) that made Lauren Faust leave Friendship is Magic after the first season).
Take a moment some time to look at some of the villain designs from the original g1 series, and note how they could easily be placed into any “boy” cartoon of the same era.
Also, the show often veered into some pretty damn dark territory, including a bunch of ponies singing about how much they hate some newborn ponies, and wouldn’t care if they were harmed or made into pets.
When it comes to the latest incarnation of the franchise, I guess we’re conveniently forgetting what Lauren Faust herself has said:
Lastly, you mean to tell me that this show is only ever “girly”?
There’s a pretty extensive page on TV Tropes dedicated solely to the amount of nightmare fuel in this show. The show even made an obvious reference to a book and movie about human sexuality in its first season.
Plus, listen to just the audio from Pinkie Pie’s mental breakdown in “Party of One”.
As I’ve said before, many of the top people working in today’s animation industry came from my generation - the ones that grew up with the bizarre, often-dark cartoons of the 80’s and early 90’s (I mean, for fuck’s sake, we had children’s cartoons based on HORROR MOVIES, including Toxic Crusaders, which was based on an R-rated Troma movie that features a child’s head being smashed under a car tire, and two girls hopping out of the car and taking pictures of the remains).
Cartoons themselves were not originally created for children, and even many of the ones supposedly aimed at a younger demographic slip in some seriously questionable material (remember when Animaniacs made a joke about fingering The Artist Formerly Known as Prince?).
Animation is for everyone on the planet, and it’s about time people stop forcing the stigma that it’s “just for kids”, as well as the idea that anything besides specific personal hygiene products should be specifically for any one gender identity.
Oh my god, Tena. You’re my hero. Thank you for this.
