Aside from wondering when Rainbow Dash is going to grow a mullet and start calling herself Mr. Dash, show's boring.
Hey if you don't like it then that's okay.

It is a kids show that probably won't happen. Also the show generally resets itself at the end of each episode.

MLP is turning most viewers into giant pussies.
Admit it, it got to you.

This statement implies that you're looking specifically for a sex change in order for a show to entertain you. If that is the type of show you are into then no, MLP is not for you. Weird.

I'm implying that most fans of the show feel that Rainbow Dash is a total lezzie and probably a butch lezzie at that.

If I was entertained by sex changes, I'd be watching Jerry Springer or something of that kidney, which I don't.

Okay, but that is not at all what you said.

So?
I know in all likelihood that she isn't, but the rainbow & applejack fanart just makes me daww, same with the lyra & bon bon, not to mention doctor whooves & derpy + family.
I know all those are probably not canon, but I like it anyways and personally I hope they don't ever shatter the dream... Especially not doctor whooves & derpy + family, if they ever proved that dinky isn't derpy's daughter I would probably try not to cry and cry anyhow. That would just hurt me cause the fanart of dinky and derpy depicts derpy as a caring mother who tries her best to be a good mom regardless.

I don't see what would be so bad about Rainbow Dash being a lesbian anyway. I think she'd be a great role model, but I know it would cause a shitstorm and I understand people don't want this show to get too political.

Politics is like a shit flinging contest, you throw a shit and then someone throws a shit at you, in the end everybody gets covered in shit. I think the last thing hasbro wants is to get covered in shit.
(metaphorically)

But yeah she would be a good role model, but the problem is that society's view on women is chauvinistic and the fact alone that she's a tomboy pisses people off, if she were lesbian there would be millions of people even angrier. Hell that recent youtube viral video in which a little girl was talking about gender stereotypes had people practically screaming for her to be taken away by custody. People have gender stereotypes so ingrained into their heads that people were calling for a little girl to be taken away just for not conforming to it... Imagine what sort of shitstorm would happen if rainbow dash was a lesbian?
Again I know she isn't, and honestly I'm glad the show doesn't touch on the subject otherwise the shitstorm would be immense.

I like that the idea of romantic relationships or sex aren't really touched upon in this show. Makes it more whimsical. I'd prefer it stay that way.

Yeah cartoons have gotten too serious lately.
As much as I wish there'd be more positive glbt tv characters, I don't want it to happen to mlp:fim cause the shitstorm could very well end the show early.

Dunno if cartoons have gotten more serious, well serious in the sense that that they aren't Buggs Bunny or Tom and Jerry, but there really aren't any political messages or anything like that in most cartoons. Just the same silly shit. I say keep em that way. I really don't want any of it in MLP:FiM.

I think fans have gotten more serious. Cartoons seem to be unchanged, but I don't watch a lot of new cartoons.

If Spongebob is any indicator, that cartoon probably got less serious in its narrative ways. Episodes are more "Lolrandom" than anything else now.

Well, first off, she doesn't need to be a lesbian to be a good rolemodel... my sister was a "tomboy" but had two daughters (and a divorce, unfortunately), so, just because RD is "butch" doesn't mean she isn't "all female". As in, straight.

They've tried it in other well-established entertainment media, with mixed success.

D'you know that cartoon "For Better or For Worse", in the comics section of newspapers? The artist made one of the characters on there come out to his parents and friends (in the comic), and the reader base was so outraged that she (the artist) recieved hatemail and even death threats as a result of this. It wasn't as if he was dressing like a flamer or anything - he just came out and suddenly everyone is working themselves into a froth over it. Over a character that DOES NOT EXIST IN REAL LIFE.

Admittedly, the cartoon in question was one of those more serious, adult-humor cartoons, but still, IT'S A CARTOON, for crying out loud. Whoever makes the first cartoon or live action show for kids that features a obvious platonic homosexual relationship is going to have some serious balls, which is commendable, but for their sake I hope they have better lawyers than anything, because of the horde of parents wanting to take their show off the air.

Updates on the youtube takedowns-
Hasbro and the Hub aren't taking down people's music, they're just taking down full episode streams.
No reason to worry folks.

Well there's extremes of the spectrum now, the crappy sort of cartoon in which you can't tell if they had writers or not; the other extreme is trying to ride on the success of anime with their over the top plots of "I have to save the world!" or other crap. There's also the cartoons where they fling it as many as they possibly can against the board hoping for success.

I think part of the success towards mlp: fim is that it's not crap.

Which is why having a lesbian character in the show is a bad idea.

There was a massive hype by people claiming that hasbro was taking down everything pony related, turns out it was just hype, it's just episodes. The reason being is that pretty soon the dvds are going to be coming out and they need people to actually buy the discs. Not to mention if there's 100k dvds bought they'll release a dvd collection. They actually want enough people to buy the dvds to justify a collector's box.
It may sound like a dick move, but they're looking at it from purely a business sense cause they want to reach the 100k mark.

They haven't banned anyone either, the only one they've gotten banned was a website that basically told them to go fuck themselves and hasbro didn't appreciate that.

If everybody buys the shit out the dvds when they come out we'll get a box set with a crap load of bonus features and stuff.

I don't care if the image itself is SFW, don't ever link to a porn site without a proper warning again.
I think that everyone here knows that e621 is a porn site... in that token so is FA, in a way.


Have they taken down Season 2 episodes?

My bad. Though people have linked to e6 and other sites without the NSFW tag. I'd be more combative of this, but then again, I see the ads they have up when Adblock is turned off so... you're pretty much right.

About the taking down of youtube videos; I think it would be stupid for them NOT to take the videos down. It's a great service they did for us by letting them stay up for so long. What other major TV show has allowed every single full episode uploaded by a third party?
