It Offends Me So It Should Be Off Air by endler It Offends Me So It Should Be Off Air by endler
Remember the whole Derpy Hooves thing?

The people behind FIM acknowledged something that the fans came up with, did it, people got pissed off because she was clumsy and had a slow voice and because apparently 'Derp' is now a synonym for 'mentally retarded' and changed her voice, and when anyone spoke out against the changing of her voice the usual reaction was 'FAHKFJSHDSFSD YOU'RE ONLY SAYING THAT BECAUSE IT'S MY LITTLE PONY AND ITS DERPY HOOVES STOP CARING GO BACK TO CLOPPING YOU FREAK'?

Well, I have no doubt that a lot of people were upset just because it was a show they liked that got censorship and because it was a character that the fans essentially molded.

But...don't know about anyone else...I thought it was ridiculous because it was fucking ridiculous. There are cartoon characters in shows intended for really young audiences that are legitimately stupid to the point where they truly show off what people think of as mental retardation and yet they go fucking insane over a slightly clumsy character because 'HER SLOW VOICE OFFENDS ME AND I READ ON THE INTERWEBS THAT DERP MEANT RETARDED NOT JUST WALL EYED :iconbawplz:'.

Really though, all in all...most cartoon censorship is pretty stupid, especially when they take out simple things like bleeping the word 'loser' (I'm looking at you Treehouse) when other cartoons got away with having an angry dog pick out the nerve endings in his gums with a tweezer and no one put a shit fit over that.

Aside from that, just...any censorship. On a large scale, on a tiny scale like that...I'm not going to truly wrap my head around it until I explode from it, or get extremely pissed and allow the censorship to take up my time other than merely making a stamp that takes a few minutes but...c'mon. It's just silly.

Tell me about it people. It's dumb to censor things that are not major. Dumb soccer moms.

Some cartoons get away with more than others. While a Canadian TV network made MLP drop the word "loser". It took THREATENING TO PORTRAY THE PROPHET MOHAMMED (which makes Muslims super butthurt) to get ol' abuser of the DMCA and foe of YouTube users everywhere, Viacom to censor South Park. This is a cartoon that frequently drops the F bomb, one episode alone used a certain euphemism for poop over 150 times, the South Park movie is so obscene the MPAA regrets NOT rating it NC-17... and the weird bit of South Park is there is a famous website ran by Viacom where most of the episodes of South Park is viewable without age verification.

I honestly think so; it seems more offensive to equal clumsiness and slowness with mental disabilities than anything else.

As of the Mike controversy, Total Drama All-Stars and maybe even Revenge of the Island is going to be pulled [the former I wouldn't mind getting pulled because it was just horrendous].

But speaking of Total Drama and censorship, it's funny that in the original cut of the show [the Canadian version], the characters are allowed to use some minor swearing, like "crap", "shut up", or even use censor bleeps to imply harsher language [Lindsay's "reason you suck" speech to Heather comes to mind], but in the US version none of that is even allowed through. Hell, the huge censor bleep in Lindsay's 'reason you suck" speech was changed to "no good, selfish, heartless, pushy, bossy, mean, bully-of-a-girl". However, pixelating her hand when giving Heather the bird was left completely unaltered. Same with camera shots when a character was indecent [nether regions or boobs were exposed], the pixelation stayed.

The thing is... it's not offensive. Not by meaning. Because meaning of ANYTHING comes solely from the writer/speaker, and NOT from the reader/listener/viewer.

I hate Derpy. I love her as a character, she's cute but for fuck's sake, people need to stop calling her Derpy. I prefer referring to her by the name Ditzy Do, because that is the name that was originally going to be given to her. Calling her Derpy, no matter what excuse people have, IS OFFENSIVE. Yes she may have some form of disability, even as little as having what I think is called a 'turn' in her eye, but calling her DERPY, i.e. RETARDED, for that is not on. And I say this as someone with autism who is fed up of being treated like she is a retard for that said autism.

I was kinda bummed they switched the voices, I thought Derpy's original voice fit well with her given her wel ... nature. I'm not calling Derpy retarded or anything, she's actually one of my favorite ponies, but she can be a bit of a klutz at times, so yeah..

Here's another double standard:
In the Adult Swim show Mary Shelley's Frankenhole, one episode was banned for portraying Mother Teresa as being an extreme doormat, yet a later episode portraying Jesus in blasphemous ways was allowed and rated TV-14.

That's a straw man argument. He's not say all censorship is stupid. But that censoring a character just because they have a ambiguous disorder is stupid.

And in Derpy's case a double standard. Has their plenty of male characters with ambiguous disorders in cartoons. Such as has Spongebob (Autism or Borderline Retardation (and no those are two different disorders), Skimpy from Ren and Skimpy (he's a Idiot Savant,) Billy from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Maddy (he's all but confirmed to be retarded,) Ed from Ed Edd and Eddy (Borderline Retardation Lemon Grab from Adventure Time (Autism with some OCD ( the creator himself admitted that he based him off autismic children, I just found this one recently.) The double standard is made even more apparent when the main cast of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic signs of disorders (not including Rainbow Dash and Apple Jack) Rareiant (I have no idea if I spelled that right) mostly just shows mild signs of OCD, Twilight show all the tell tell signs of Aspergers, Pinkie Pie is ether insane or Autistic or both, and Fluttershy (you got me there, but she's extremely shy (obviously,) and antisocial, has a extremely low self esteem, and friend to all living thing.) Even more apparent that several background character are also ambitiously retarded


This also worth mentioning that most cartoons on right now are on the What Do You Mean, It's For Kids? category (justified as the current is desensitized by most of the things that are censored now, Making the censorship broken and kinda stupid.) Though I also want to it's mention that a episode of Adventure Time there tournament of love (it make sense in context) and one of the changes is a "Spooning" (aka sex) contest, and you get to see the slim girl "spoon" the slim guy *wow* is make with that what you will.

This actually more offensive to censor a characters that ambiguously represent people with disorders. Because the unfortunate implications are that we should pretend these people don't exist.


I think gun censorship in cartoons is also pretty stupid.

And also since Rainbow Dash was being nice to Derpy, not hur dur. Derpy being herself, and Rainbow Dash being mildly annoyed but still friendly. So they're basically saying, "Kids with mental retardation shouldn't be accepted and they shouldn't be allowed on TV, shouldn't have something nice about them."

Thank you.
If they act like people with disorders don't exist, how is that supposed to make people with disorders feel? Like they're not supposed to exist? And I heard that what started this was a bunch of soccer moms or something like that saying it was offensive to people with mental disorders. Even though they probably didn't have them anyways.
I have aspergers and ADHD, and yet she's my favorite character. She gives me something to connect to, as she is different from the other ponies. I think the whole thing about derpy being offensive was stupid. 
Your comment speaks the truth. Sorryfor the sort-of long reply.
