So this proves Rainbow Dash is 20% cooler than any other pony in that chart? I'm ok with this!

After some googling I found out (though the source isn't reliable I don't think) Lauren Faust (the author) said RD isn't a lesbian, which is good because she's not a stereotyped character.

No one in the show have any sort of set romantic desiers other then spike.

Edit: Well I suppose Twilight can be a bit weird around Celestia, but I don't think it's like that.

She didn't say she wasn't a lesbian, but she replied to someone who bashed the show saying it said "girls who are tomboyish are lesbians because rainbows", telling her that was a pretty bad stereotyping and no way her intention and unfair to both tomboys and lesbians alike.

I had her reply somewhere as it talked about plenty of other very interesting stuff behind what she tried to accomplish with this show, but I lost it.

Also yes, there is no point in talking about such a topic anyway. It's dumb. The closest to love relationship is

Right on. And I expect it to remain like that. As much as I'm an adult watching the show, I know the main target are children. If it gives attention to that kind of situation, parents might not let their kids watch, and bronies alone can't keep the show alive...

That's arguable, but never the less, I agree. I don't want any romance in the show, if I want that stuff (and I do in fact.) I can get it in fanfiction, which is where it should be for this show!

Okay, that shipping diagram is pretty awesome, because token Derpy Hooves is apparently slightly paired with Big Mac, and not Rainbow Dash.

Also typo: Rainboy Dash. Take it what you will.

Most of you probably know, but ED released an interview with Lauren Faust. Go check it out if you haven't already!

I feel embarassed they asked about rule 34 on bronies though.

It's one of those questions that occurred really commonly throughout the fanbase though, so as awkward as it may have been seeing it in the interview, at least her answer pretty much cleared things up.

Oh, and as for the show, I've been watching it since March and have enjoyed it since. I don't have a favorite pony like most people (really, they all have their moments), though my favorite episode is definitely Party of One. Season 2 has had some really awesome ones so far though, so I'm expecting one of them to eventually trump it.

Except she cleared it up ages before on dA and they had propagated the information through the fanbase. People are just too lazy to look for the answers. And again people will ask her all over due to laziness..

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I don't dislike this show. But then again I don't like it either.

Can;t judge anything unless I have seen it. And I have only seen about three episodes of MLP:FiM. I mean, it's cute and all. But I don't see myself coming back for more.

I'll admit though that it did get a few laughs out of me. But meh, it's a cute show.

There's nothing wrong in sharing not-easliy-found quotes I guess.

I don't really follow the series. It is a child's show and I don't exactly enjoy the voices of the ponies, but I do enjoy watching random clips from Discord.

I know this point gets brought up alot but:


I don't think kids would get this reference, or the Yakety Sax homage music or the rest of the adult references, but yeah it's a children show.

And Tara Strong isn't my cup of tea ether, she always finds a way to make the people she voices sound very whiny but I don't have any problems with the other characters though.

I did finally start to get into this. Its taking me a while to watch the episodes (I'm still only on S1E4), but I do like it. I thought I would, but it took a lot of people to get me to watch it

Yeah, it's awesome.

I was kind of sad about the voice though. But it turns out the voice actress didn't even know the character was female. And she thought of some boy she knew who was pretty.. Derpy.

Well, it's still an awesome voice.

I'm looking forward to Read it and Weep, myself. Should be a fun episode.

Latest episode was really awesome in my opinion since I have been dying to see a bit more everypony action rather then just a few.

I'm kinda hoping that Rainbow Dash either can't read or not very well, and this is a 'learning how to read' episode. It probably won't. Because Rainbow Dash reads entire novels in 10 seconds flat.
