This means... Equestria is Animal Farm with the ponies in charge instead of pigs... that's why the ponies are treating the sheep, cows, pigs, and all other animals like slaves! And the humans have all fled to the Equestria Girls world!
Yes...

Ponyvillians are surprisingly racist when it comes to other equines; they all ran in fear from Zecora, and they make Donkey and Mule jokes like a White 1950s businessman would make Polish jokes and dumb blonde jokes.

Racists are a vocal minority, but Humans are considerably less... well, racist then the ponies.

We're also much less skittish.

It makes me sad too; everyone I know who's seen says it's a great movie, and everything I've osmosed of it from the fandom makes it sound like a lot of fun. I still think the character designs are awful and there are some fans who didn't like it, but Meghan McCarthy seems to have done the impossible and turned a really horrible idea into a really good movie that was liked/loved by almost everyone who saw it. I was mostly convinced before its release that it was going to be nonstop suck because the human designs look so ugly to me that I was sure it had been farmed out to some hack animation outfit that had no connection to MLP at all, but it was all the same DHX production crew, and was essentially just a three part episode of the show. It's a good movie.


I still won't be watching it, and that honestly does make me sad; but it's full of humans, and humans ruin everything. I really appreciate that McCarthy set it up in such a way that the magic mirror automatically converts anyone passing through it into the correct file format for the destination universe's operating system; that means no humans in Equestria... but only as long as she's the one calling the shots writing-wise. If I had thought of it, I would have put "HOERS NOT MUNKY" on one of the signs, because that's what my personal take on the whole thing boils down to. As long as Friendship Is Magic was its own universe, separate and apart and completely human-free, the Ponies were free to be real characters in their own right; Lauren Herself specifically wanted to limit the amount of humanlike behavior to emphasize that they weren't pony-shaped humans, they were ponies, and they acted like pony people would act. Once you introduce humans into that world, the whole thing is ruined, because forever after the Ponies won't be people any more, they'll just be cartoon animals, nothing more than pets and "animal companions" for the human characters, and I say NO. No Megans. No stupid ape creatures ruining a beautiful fantasy world where the little horse folks are people all by themselves without having to be strained through the filter of a primate's interest in them. It cheapens and demeans the entire fascinating world that they've spent the last three seasons building, and it turns everypony in Equestria into some dumb ape's sidekick.


I was completely wrong about it being terrible; what I've heard of it makes it sound like a movie I could really get into and be a huge fan of if it was about a generic cartoon animal princess from a cartoon animal world getting stuck in a real world (or at least more realistic) human high school and having to adapt. But it's not. It's a FIM movie with humans in it, and I just could not enjoy it on its own merits because of that; I would be miserable and angry the entire time. HOERS NOT MUNKY.

"No stupid ape creatures ruining a beautiful fantasy world where the little horse folks are people all by themselves without having to be strained through the filter of a primate's interest in them."

Uhm, problem.

Granted, they do act quite equine-like, being skittish and occasionally neighing, not eating meat. But they're pretty much just Humans in a different shape and with some equine attributes.

"strained through the filter of a primate's interest in them."

They're already strained through a filter. I mean, they're written by Humans.

That's not the point, though. Right now there's nothing between the characters and the audience; they are unquestionably the focus of the show. If there are Humans in Equestria-- or Ponies in Equestria Of The Apes-- the Ponies will no longer be the focus, for either the writers or the audience; the Ponies will ever after only be viewed by what they mean to the Human characters.

This is about "Equestrian Girls" ain't it? If so, why hate a show before it debuts? I did the same thing to The Looney Tunes Show when it was announced to debut on Cartoon Network a while back, and it actually isn't all that bad.

Ahahahahaha NO.

Equestria Girls is deeply offensive as a *concept*; the very *idea* of it is terrible like a jockstrap full of smallpox, there is just no way they can make it any good. I will not watch even a moment of it, and will be angry every time it accidentally gets in front of me.

This is really more about the fandom reaction to The Horror than The Horror itself; the angry mob has a point, they just shouldn't blame Lyra for it.

LONG COMMENT INCOMING. Be prepared.


Sooo you're saying that the Brony rule of "Love and Tolerate" doesn't apply to anything human related despite the fact that incredible amounts of us have done humanized drawings of then, humanized fanfictions of them, and have actually wanted to see a show for them as humans? Hell, certain bronies even did Rule 34 stuff of them Humanized(hey, it's better than creating pony sex)!! And honestly, I recall seeing a comic on here somewhere with Human Twi telling off certain bronies about how they're fine with humanized pony art but a tv show of it comes along and they hate it?!

Point being, WTF HAPPENED TO OUR #1 RULE: LOVE AND TOLERATE?! SINCE WHEN DID BRONIES LIKE TO CLASSIFY THEMSELVES AS BRAINDEAD HYPOCRITES?! As a brony who is giving it a chance, just like I did with the main series, I am disappoint as f*ck.

I've drawn humanized fanart myself, I'm not opposed to the basic concept; it's a concept, however, that *belongs in fanart*. There is a clear objective difference between something a fan makes out of love for a series and something a corporation makes in a shameless and soulless attempt to shoehorn an unrelated concept into an existing franchise for the sole purpose of cashing in on that franchise's popularity. It is doubly insulting because the very idea of a personality-free cookie cutter fashion doll show is directly opposed to the vision of Friendship Is Magic as a show which the entire family can watch and that refuses to talk down to girls or treat them like mindless Pink Aisle toy/fashion/nonsense consumers.

If Equestria Girls were just another mindless Bratz/Winx Club/Monster High tween fashion doll show, I wouldn't care, they're a dime a dozen and can be safely ignored. It's not. It's a mindless tween fashion doll show that's been shoehorned into the MLP:FIM franchise in a transparent attempt to capitalize on FIM's popularity, and it is inherently terrible because of it. I will *not* be "giving it a chance", and I sincerely hope it fails spectacularly and whatever executive was responsible for it becomes a pariah in the industry.

How do you even know what the show will be like before it even aired?

Don't judge a book by its cover. You never know, it may just be featuring the characters with the same kind of personality as their pony counterparts. But seriously, am I the only Brony willing to stand by the eternal rule of Bronies being "Love and Tolerate" and give the show a chance before saying anything about it?

It will be about the Mane Six finding a portal to a human version of Equestria, where they will take human-ish forms and go to high school to fit in. And all have exactly the same faces, stick figure bodies, and atrocious fashion styles. Its entire raison d'Ítre is so that Hasbro can break into the Monster High category of tween fashion dolls by artificially grafting it onto the MLP:FIM franchise. I really don't need to know anything else about it. It's going to be awful when it comes out because it's awful *before* it comes out.

So far, from what I've seen online, about 15-20% of FIM fandom is "willing to give it a chance". Only a handful are excited about it, around 10% don't care one way or the other, and everyone else hates it like farts on elevators. Enjoy it if it makes you happy, but it's still going to be awful regardless.

All I can say is...that this sorta means that 80% of bronies and pegasisters are total hypocrites turning their back on their "Love and Tolerate" policy, thus turning their back on all MLP FiM fandom they have loved and tolerated with since the beginning of the show. I don't care if it's cashing in on both the franchise and the whole high school Monster whatever, as I'm giving it a chance because, 1) I'm keeping myself open minded about it like I did with MLP at first, and 2) Love and Tolerate. If the first episode or two are that horrid, I will still tolerate it and learn to love it...or at the very least like it. But hey, I'm not insulting you(if it seems that way, I truly apologize), as you have a legit reason to dislike it.

"Love and Tolerance" has never been mentioned in the show and has nothing to do with being a fan. It's just a meme that started and spread around as a joke mostly and now people take it way too seriously.

As for this show I agree that it's an abomination and goes against everything Lauren Faust was trying to accomplish. Plus the entire concept is dumb and the artwork looks horrible. Rainbow Dash a a blue human? Ugh...

I doubt the two series will be part of the same canon universe. When Twi becomes an alicorn, would she really be sent to another dimension? That would both be illogical and unlikely. And based on he image of Twi in the spolier for the spinoff, she's doesn't exactly have anything that reminds you of flight or royalty.

Apparently there's been a rumor flying around that the upcoming "Equestria Girls" MLP product line for older girls includes a spin-off animated series where the Mane 6 and other possible characters are zapped into Earth and turned into human versions of themselves. There, they have to blend in by going to a high school.

EQ Daily's article on the fact that the rumor may be confirmed is here: [link]

It's imply that this series (If it's a reality) would be a sort of alternative universe and NOT interfere with the continuity of the main series or the next season. (Kinda like J.J. Abrams' Star Trek)

But despite all of the above (Rumor, spin-off that won't affect the main series, etc) the fandom is throwing a S#$%fit over it!
