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.

Calling her Derpy

Gets upset and bashes Hasbro when she was given a weird voice

Throws a massive fit when voice is removed

Only imagine if modern day parents saw one episode of Courage The Cowardly Dog called The Mask (Look it up) or Freaky Fred (EVERY FAN REMEMBERS THIS)

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.

Wasn't Derpy kicked off from the show because mothers found it offensive to kids with actual mental disabilities?

If they censor a word  like "loser" the audience will probably think its a dirtier one due to context

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.
