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.

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
