Tumblr:Do you realize how offensive that is? Seriously go ahead and tell me if you do. Let me answer that you stupid white privileged heterosexual male, you don't. See people like you have never even taken the time to research the fact that there are people that cannot in fact sigh. This is the kind of ableism that makes it look like we still live in the 50's or some shit. What's next, you want to go out and lynch some PoC's with your drinking buddies? Some people are bound to iron lungs and cannot sigh even if they wanted to. You can deny your privilege of being able to sigh all you want but it will only make you look more like a privilege denying asshole. People like you make me sick. Sometimes I have no faith for this country.
I’ve seen a few people dismissing my previous posts because you think as non-disabled person, I’m putting words in the mouth of the mentally disabled and have no right to speak out.
For reasons of privacy, I’m not about to tell the whole wide internet why abelism towards the mentally disabled…
We mentally disabled people can fend for ourselves, I don’t need people like you trying to censor the fact that we exist just to keep from “offending” us.I am SICK AND TIRED of it! I am so disgusted by people always going “nooo how dare you make fun of the retards, you know it hurts them because they have hearts of glass and need to be cover loved and protected meh meh meh meh meh!!!”
We have feelings, and being treated overly nice and bubbled like this is just as bad as being treated badly. Either way, we are not being treated as equal people. It’s disgusting. I’m not special, I don’t need special treatment, I don’t need to be offended by seeing the fact that “oh hey we exist in the media”. It’s like there can’t be a mentally disabled person in anything without being offensive, unless they have some big heart of gold and act SUPER DUPER smart. It’s either “be important, or get the hell out, you little dumbasses.”
Yeah, I wasn’t too fond of her voice, but you know what? She’s still being treated like a normal pony, she was clearly allowed to help despite her problems. And that’s all I’ve wanted, all any of us in special ed wanted. To be treated like any other average person! And now people like you freak out and want to remove a character just because she’s a little stereotypical. If you want to do that, then remove ALL the characters in the show! Rainbow Dash has become a stereotyped tomboy who acts like an egotistical little asshole jock, Rarity is a valley girl who freaks out over her hair so she’s offensive to women, etc etc NEED I GO ON?
I don;t say this to people often, but I am REALLY.
By your attitude.
Just as much as I was offended by my teacher for lecturing someone on saying the word retard and saying “I have a mentally disabled cousin and this is offensive.” Yeah, thanks for pointing her out and degrading her like she can’t take care of herself at all. That’s really nice of you.
I don’t care if you don’t see this, but as someone who feels very close to the Derpy character, and who was a little hurt by her canon voice because of the writing and lack of emotion, I just want to say I really, really don’t like your awful social opinions.
There. I said it. I am not all sunshine and cute. I am a human being with feelings, I can get hurt, and I can be really mad. Right now, I am VERY mad.
With this said, You have lost the game, good bye.
[[OOC: I don’t reblog unrelated stuff often, but I’ve NEVER seen BDR this upset. Ever. And I full heartedly agree with this 100%]]
For those unaware, in the latest episode she was shown clumsily destroying the town, talking with slurred speech, and was officially referred to as “Derpy.” She’s officially the mentally handicapped joke character, just like fandom has always wanted her to be.
I’ve received countless asks about this, so I figure you’re all wanting a reaction. But really, if you’ve read any of my posts regarding the “Derpy Hooves” character, you know exactly how I feel about it.
This is a low I had not expected. I really don’t even know what to say. I have lost so much respect for the creators after this.
Yeah, this pretty much sums it up. I got onto Facebook today and a friend of mine had posted the status: “Derpy is canon and is voiced.”
So I got on YouTube to find the episode… and yeah. That just happened.
“She’s officially the mentally handicapped joke character, just like fandom has always wanted her to be.”
I hope you guys are happy living in your disgusting, privileged worlds.
Yeah, I figured this would be Yamino’s reaction.
Personally, *as* a high-functioning autistic (Aspergers) I don’t see any problem with it. She means well, she’s just clumsy. We got less than a minute of her, and you’re calling that the extent of her personality? She’s just a “Mentally handicapped joke character”? Come on, you’re both writers and artists. Would *you* accept anybody saying your characters are *just* something? Would you not insist there’s other facets that just haven’t been seen yet?
There’s other interpretations of her too, you know. She’s deaf and/or has an inner ear thing (Explaining her way of speaking and her clumsiness), she’s just kinda dim and *really* unlucky, whatever. But nope, instantly to the most reactionary….reaction.
Stop being offended by things that have no relation to you, and stop being offended *for* people. You do not know better than others who these things actually relate to, and the constant ‘This offends me!’ reactions I see bug the ever-lovin’ crap out of me.
You know what? Not even most of the fanbase thinks Derpy is *just* a joke character! They consider her a loving, devoted parent, a hard worker, and a caring friend, who just HAPPENS to have something wrong in her head! And here you guys are, going ‘Oh, she’s just a retarded joke character now, this is so offensive’, based on LESS THAN A MINUTE AND A HALF between her name being spoken and the last frame she appeared on screen!
If you ask me? THAT is more offensive.
Can’t have goofy characters anymore.
There’s plenty of people who looks and act retarded without being mentally handicapped. If you’re assuming someone clumsy with a lazy eye is retarded, then you’ve got issues.
Fucking tumblr outrages, man…
The slurring speak did raise my radars a bit, but having grown up with Stimpy, Heffer, Patrick Star, and a million others, it was REALLY hard to be offended by this. She was just a clumsy character and she was barely given ANY screen time. If the whole episode had been about her, and her problems and they mishandled that, I guess I could understand the outrage? But really…. barely anything… SOCIAL JUSTICE RAGE!! I’d be more offended by the pandering to the older fans then anything, and even that is nothing worth getting worked up about.
quit getting mad at cartoons
everyone listen to adri
they are cartoon horses
everyone please stop taking everything so seriously and just look at the cute-ass horses
THIS!!!!~!^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ for god sake shes adorable
you know what this reminds me of? This previous christmas…
this is brony White Whine,
your FINALLY GIVEN a voice to the charactor you fell in love with a while back- and you cant see anything past the slurred speech and destructiveness.. you see (forgive me for lack of better word) retard… well how is that different from “i didnt get an ipod/itouch/ipad for christmas. my parents hate me whaaaa” i personally love the ever loving fuck out of derpy- she is exactly how i invisioned how she would talk… slurred and all.
take a moment and look at yourself and realize just what your saying….
OH COME ON!!!!!!! this was perfect, she was perfect, slured speech and all… btw her name was just derpy…. doo could be emphasized- like saying rainbow or pinkie
I found her cute at first. But then the entire scene played out…
you see asburgers, i see clumbsy and just down right flying disaster area. i dont see someone with mind problems - i never thought derpy was a special needs type person, just someone that loves muffins and WANTS to help but ends up ruining it (kinda like myself in some ways)
i dont think your wrong i just think your intitled to your opinion and are free to share your thoughts as am i.
its one of the few reasons why we choose to dissagree on love for charactor (i fucking love Dash, and dispise rarity and for you its vice versa, but in the end we love eachother. )
ive worked with opertunity village out here in vegas, the people that ive helped out here- yes they are nothing like derpy- if anything they are ALOT like pinkie… but giving someone traits and charactoristics in a show does not label them something or other..
