Quoting The Andromeda Strain:" It's not the title itself, I've never had an issue with Celestia being a princess instead of a queen ... [snip!] ... just pandering to what little girls are supposed to like and that is the exact opposite of what this show started out to do."


i've always had a feeling she would become something special or even take princess celestia's place in the end.



twlight sparkle is awesome and my daughter favourite pony ( actually she goes back and forth between twilight and rainbow dash lol) I really hope they don't actually do this and make her all frilly-like.

Quoting Captain Obvious:" OP your heart is broken because a f**king cartoon pony wears a dress and a crown now? seriously? broken hearted?"


If you want to put it that black and white, then you can.



I am broken hearted because there was finally a show marketed for girls that wasn't overtly girly. They dealt with problems that children go through every day, and gave really great advice. Now they're taking the main character and turning her into a princess because that's what girls are supposed to want.

It could just be for one episode and she ditches the dress afterwards.... You never know. Don't give up hope yet!

I mean... maybe it's because I don't watch it...



But "marketed to girls" pretty much always means the same thing to me. Gender divides are pretty clear, and just seeing pictures of MLP screams girly-girl to me. And, don't get me wrong... my anti-gender-stereotypes got me a daughter that's obsessed with pink princess dresses. But... on the other hand... she begs me to watch Star Wars with her. *shrug* So.... yeah... pink frilly dresses, it sucks that that's what girls are "made to want". But I don't think MLP, crown or not, is fighting against any gender stereotypes. But maybe I need to watch it to understand? haha

Hey, It broke my heart at the end of the Little Mermaid when Ariel was turned back into human. I didn't understand it. I was like thinking, "Dude, if I was Eric, I'd be like... Um no, I 'd rather be a Merman!"



:wink:

I know everyone is laughing at me and thinks I'm being ridiculous, but this shows message and everything it sought out to do was just so important to me. If anyone cares to take the time to read this, it may give some insight as to why I'm upset by this. I realize it's unimportant, but it still makes me sad that all of this hard work was undone. =/

OMG!! :lol: :lol:



Yea, but you gotta admit. It would be awesomely amazing to be able to spend a day under water swimming fast, and being able to breath. (Hahaha I was always a day dreamer when I was a kid... Can you tell?) I wonder how Mermaids would even breed?



It kinda makes me think of that one episode of Family Guy when Stewie finally kills Lois, and a merman saves her. But the merman had legs and his upper body was the fish part.

Yeah, but it's okay for adults to be into comic books moreso now...at least more than MLP. =/



Btw I heard that Wolverine and the X-Men is pretty horrid on it's own. :D Haha.

I blame Hasbro, all the way.
I think Robbie is more pissed than I am, though.



Really hoping it's temporary and they're using it to introduce that one toy as a character; Princess Skylar or whatever.
