    Spike! Wings or Without?

    It isn't even comparable situation. I didn't bother to look but I didn't see anyone caring about the topic to begin with. And the Spike Wings episode was leaked a year ago and kinda went unmentioned anyway. If Alicornpocalypse was a raging fire then Spike with wings is a candle. Heck I only saw petition mentioned on fimfiction, like OP did. But it was people wondering "what is wrong with this guy" and not some big drama.

    Spike! Wings or Without?

    https://www.change.org/p/hasbro-get-rid-of-spike-s-wings This, a random petition. That's it as far as I know. Hardly an epic war worth talking about. I just figured better turn this into Spike appreciation thread.

    Spike! Wings or Without?

    Oh please, that petition is just sad. But well there is a random petition for anything. I mean Spike wings or no wings, it really does not matter. He is Spikey the Brave and has home in all our hearts.

    Babs Seed's cutie mark?

    She is gone forever as other fillies. Like Twist, Diamond Tiara and so on. MLP support cast is so large that there is serious competition for any screen time.

    MLP: FiM Books

    Well there are official MLP novellas but as you have noticed they are aimed for younger audience. I only read Starlight's and it was forgettable so I can't really recommend. As for the non official stuff well there is no shortage of fanfics depending if you like that sort of thing.

    Season 8, Episode 13: The Mean 6

    First what I want to say is that it was damn time for there to be a proper villain episode that wasn't two part episode. This episode certainly was fun and it helps a lot to flesh out Chrysalis And do I even need to mention how much fun actress must have had playing evil versions of their usual characters? Which kind makes me sad that they are already gone. I mean Evil Dash and Pinkie didn't even get to do anything, Rarity, AJ and especially Twilight stole the spotlight. All good things come in small packages I suppose. Oh and I have to be honest. I found mane six reconciliation lackluster, especially since they just shrugged of that they saw each other acting completely unreasonably. Only Dash one time wondered if evil Evil Rarity was under a curse or affected by poison joke.

  9. Oh right. Just to make it clear. I don't support using slurs and avoid using them. What I am against is overreacting if someone else uses it under any circumstance.
  10. Actually the history of that word is much longer and more convoluted than that. You can just google it. I should probably find actual books when I get the time. But anyway it isn't quite as you are describing it, the true prerogative nature of the word is lot more recent creation than slavery times. And even if you are right, again I ask why should we continue to give a power to a stupid word? Words are powerless and only have power that we give it to them. As for other cultures well good for them I guess. Also point is that he wasn't using it with racist intentions. Just as a random swear word. He might swear every day, who knows, but at the end of the day it was not said with racist intentions. Also he apologized and the whole stupid thing has been over for ages so why are we even digging out old shames?

    I lik- Oh, vocal if you "don't" like them. Oh well.
  12. Yes, it is "just a word". It literally just means black in latin and it had no malice behind it until 20th century. Notice that Nigeria has no problem of using that word for their own country. Also I wouldn't dream of claiming that all African-Americans get offended by it, if anything I think there are more people who get offended on their behalf than there are African-Americans that get offended by it. I wouldn't know really. I have yet to discover why do Americans even divide themselves because of the skin color. I always assumed all Americans are just Americans. I don't get it. He is defending Pewdie because Pewdie isn't a racist and already has apologized for it. He is not saying "hey let's all say the n-word, it is ok!". He is just saying that just because someone might say the n-word doesn't mean that person is automatically racist because sometimes we say dumb things under dumb circumstances. Like in case of Pewdie, he said it because he got angry at a video game. Big assumption to mistake his intention to be "racial slurs are ok!". Also you are literally talking about "exposing him" as racist and you are talking behind his back on unrelated website. When he didn't even say the word. So is he really wrong?

    Season 8, Episode 6: Surf and/or Turf

    Deep down most arguments are silly. But yeah you are right but childish argument is still an argument so it counts as seeing CMC arguing before this episode. It just was more serious this time.
  14. You are joking, right? Or just not in the mood to read what that person is saying. Marked out person didn't even use a single slurs, he was just explaining facts regarding the stupid Pewdie Pie drama that happened ages ago (and was as pointless then as it now). A bit rude, sure, but then not that much by internet standards. My advice is don't start witch hunts or inquisitions. Especially when person in question isn't even guilty. And as for N word, I think Americans have strange priorities and get mortified for silliest of things. Sure, the word is a dumb swear but it is just a word. Why give it any power by overreacting and giving it significance?

    Season 8, Episode 6: Surf and/or Turf

    People mean that the episode was allegory for divorce, not that there really was a divorce. Also divorced parents can be civil and even pleasant to each other, not all divorces result in hate between two people where kids must chose one parent.
