‘My Little Pony’ will push the LGBT agenda on little kids this season

My Little Pony is appeasing the LGBT agenda by having a gay couple of ponies as characters.

It’s not enough that they’ve basically won the culture war on this issue, they have to propagandize children into it too.



More from Christian Broadcasting News:

The ninth and final season of the animated series “My Little Pony” on the Discovery Family Channel will feature a lesbian couple who take care of a school-aged character named Scootaloo.

The episode, titled “The Last Crusade,” introduces the same-sex couple Aunt Holiday and Auntie Lofty in the middle of Gay Pride Month, which the program’s producers call a “happy coincidence.”

I think this is the clip of the characters:

Christians have lost the culture on this issue. We’re on the defensive. We have to fight just to avoid imprisonment for speaking out against the popular culture. And I’m guessing it will get worse. We’ll probably see some bigoted MAGA-hat wearing pony who looks like Mike Pence and forces a gay pony to undergo conversation therapy before he’s defeated and ritually beheaded while bloodthirsty gay ponies look on and laugh, all for the sake of the woke religion….

  1. Just sitting in my east Tennessee mountain home, sipping lemonade out on the front porch, watching the birds and squirrels flit around the forest…. and wondering when America will suddenly WAKE THE F*#K UP and do something about this culture rot?

  2. “Family Channel”

    Not a real family, mind. Just the broken, sham assemblage that leftists pretend is the “new” family.

    Reality: only a tiny percentage of homosexuals are monogamous. There is no real “Modern Family.”

    Nico Lang (DailyBeast): Gay Open Marriages Need To Come Out of the Closet

    The American family is not packed with GBLTs. Marriage as an institution is in trouble, but not because of the less-than 3% of the population who place sex above other human concerns. Marriage is in trouble because the Church has refused it’s duty to declare unsanctified unions to be a sin that cannot be accommodated.

    This obsessive, GBLT bubble we’re stuck in with Hollywood will pass. The “gaying of all the things” by Hollywood is why Disney/Marvel entertainment is nowhere near as profitable as it could be. People are turning away from Hollywood’s fake, GBLT utopia because it makes no sense.

    1. “The ‘gaying of all the things’ by Hollywood is why Disney/Marvel entertainment is nowhere near as profitable as it could be.”

      Didn’t see Avengers: Endgame (which I guess included a short stint by an openly gay character) but it’s box office take is reported to be up to $2.74 Billion dollars. That’s Billion with a B.

      1. So? Even in the worst of times for the auto companies, Corvettes made money. Doesn’t change overall reality.

        1. Since acquiring Marvel, Disney has had an incredible, unprecedented run. Given its record breaking profits, I don’t think Disney would agree that it is “nowhere near as profitable as it could be” as a direct result of these decisions.

    2. Marriage is supposed to be monogamous. Why do they want marriage, and increasingly marriage in a church, if they are not monogamous? To make a mockery of marriage, the family, the church, and God?

      1. Yep. To pretend that their mockery of marriage is real, so they can “shame” people into accepting it.

      1. Yep. Under-reported.

        Also, a ridiculous level of predatory pedophilia in “marriages” between two men.

  3. It’s not really a culture war if one side doesn’t fight. Christian America just won’t fight back; they’re too afraid of being called names. Running away to homeschools and trying to form subculture bubbles to protect children is not fighting. You have to fight. It doesn’t matter if you outnumber your opponents–give them an open field and they will run all over you.

    Denounce them. Publicly. From the pulpit. Over the dinner table. On TV shows. In legislatures and school board meetings and in all public fora. Boycott the craven corporations that support them. Stop voting for Democrats. Make a fuss. Stop shutting up and retreating. Educate yourselves. Fight.

    1. @spiritof61

      While I completely agree with you, the problem is that to do so in this day and age, it will cost us something. I’m not saying to not fight… but few will when they lose their jobs, livelihood, friends/family – even if it’s for the cause of Christ. It’s not right (I’m guilty too) but it’s honest. I pray for revival and strength.

  4. It’s not enough that they’ve basically won the culture war on this issue, they have to propagandize children into it too.

    That’s how the win the culture war forever. It will take generations to turn it around.

  5. Dems will carry on forever about how “inappropriate” Trump is in the way he conducts himself as president – simply because he is, without a doubt, the most unconventional President in modern history (maybe ever, IDK). Watch how they huff and puff over the way he “hasn’t had a daily press briefing in 90 days” or something, even though he communicates directly through Twitter – like it or not – his way. Or how he chooses to follow his own counsel, rather than be told what to told by his “expert handlers.” Yes, unconventional.

    But they CELEBRATE their own unconventionality – no more than that, they insist that everyone accept and celebrate it too, OR ELSE!

    Does a public voice dare suggest that introducing a lesbian My Little Pony couple is maybe a bit much? Do it at your own risk!

    We cannot survive this.

  6. Another abomination and proof that this godlessness is evil. This is sickening.

    Time to boycott something else… UGH!

  7. My Little Pony has been a cesspool for this kind of stuff for a long while. Though the two lesbian characters are new any one who has followed the MLP controversies knows how many goofy things the franchise has pushed over the years. Up until now it’s all been pretty symbolic from the rainbow colored ponies/unicorn ponies to the types of mystic symbols stenciled onto their haunches the subliminal depictions have always been towards an anti-Christian, anti-moral worldview. Though most children (and many adults) probably have no clue as to what they are seeing it all serves a purpose of normalizing these things. Eventually people just think that homosexuality and eastern mysticism are just a normal part of life.

  8. I don’t know if I would say that Christians have lost the culture war in this respect because Biblically, it’s been prophesized that this is where the world (the flesh) would go – basically, away from God. But I think if Christians had been more obedient and were more Christ-like (by studying our Bibles, earnestly contending for the faith, witnessing, relying of God’s strength – not our own, etc.) this may have taken longer. But right now, good is evil and evil is good. And nothing seems to make sense anymore. More proof that our Lord Jesus may be coming soon. It’s hard to wait. Until then, I (we) will continue to speak out against evil and not support it.

  9. Hollywood’s sexual indoctrination of children continues full-throttle — kids must embrace rhymes-with-pay sex… They must be taught early that “wrong is right,” and that Satan is the ruler and king of their hearts.

  10. My Little Pony is a children’s show, and I don’t think most parents – Christian or not – are going to want this influencing their kids. I really don’t. It’ll be the tiny percentage like homosexual parents and the ones that support their young children being sexualized like the little boy’s parent(s) that trot him out dressed as a girl.

  11. “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” Mt, 18:6

    Enough said.

  12. Gays are only 2% of the population, according to the CDC. But their heavy presence in the culture and media makes people think they are 25% of the population. A quarter of the population is enough for the average voter to think they deserve political deference.

        1. That’s the kind of joke that will increasingly induce blank stares from young people, and others who actually interact with LGBT individuals in their everyday lives. They just don’t get what’s supposed to be funny about suggesting someone is LGBT or associating with LBGT. It’s not an insult to them.

          1. @t_ump That’s because they effed up the Romney-Obama poll so bad. I had forgotten about that. Gallup leans left.

  13. Boycotts and getting heartburn don’t work, but ratings do. If no one watches, ad revenues drop and Discovery Family Channel will get the message loud and clear. In their wallet.
    Televisions and radios have buttons to push to change the channel. If parents don’t want their children to watch this garbage, change the dang channel.

      1. I have no idea @dr-Strangelove. Discovery Channel has some pretty cool programming, but I had no idea there was a Discovery Family Channel. This sounds more like something PBS would air.

    1. True, but this goes both ways. Corporations wouldn’t be doing this if they didn’t see it as beneficial to their pocketbooks. The percentage of young people openly identifying as LGBT is steadily growing, and there is also a large contingent of the population who views open inclusion into culture as beneficial. What seems like indoctrination from one perspective can be viewed as chasing the market from another. The reality is that once these things start rolling doesn’t matter one way or another.

      1. @t_ump Corporations make mistakes all the time. In the 90’s Coca-Cola dumped their original product “Coke” and replaced it with “New Coke.” It bombed so badly in the market place, Coke scraped the idea and brought back Coke.

        1. @landscaper BTW, New Coke is being reintroduced in conjunction with the next season of Stranger Things on Netflix.

  14. Your right Soop, it is a religion. From a Christian perspective I see this as a revival of ancient paganism under the guise of a socio-political movement. The same can also be said of abortion, drug use, violence and a host of other things we see today. I also believe it has prophetic implications.

  15. I guess I need to pray for Scootaloo now because its upbringing will not be a good example for this “pony”… Funny, you never see about Ponies or other animals in the kingdom prefer to have sex with their same sex partner. We could all learn a lot by observing nature.
    The left can’t even leave a pony cartoon show out of politics. They’ve ruined sports, entertainment and now, kids cartoons.

    1. Funny, you never see about Ponies or other animals in the kingdom prefer to have sex with their same sex partner. We could all learn a lot by observing nature.

      Exactly.

      But even if someone could make the dubious argument that animals engage in so-called “homosexuality”, the argument is stupid given that animals engage in other behaviors that no rational thinking human would want to engage, such as infanticide (unless one is a member of The Sinister) or cannibalism (unless one fancies Hannibal Lecter or Jeffrey Dahlmer). Animals hunt and kill other animals so why are we locking up people for murder? They’re just acting on “animal instincts”, right?

      No thanks.

    2. According to scientists, homosexual activity does exist in nature. Read a bit about the Bonobos or pigmy chimpanzees, supposedly one of the closest human relatives, if you are curious.

      1. so does murder, cannibalism and incest. gonna push those on us too with cartoon ponies?

        1. Nope.

          @TD1 suggested we should be “observing nature” when it comes to these issues. Just noting that nature isn’t as he had suggested, and that we may not like where “observing nature” leads us.

  16. And they were doing so well too. Good, wholesome show with good messages (Season 5 was basically a huge middle finger to socialism.) And rather than submit to the snowflake brigade about a drawing error that resulted in hilarity (google: derpy hooves), they instead doubled-down, made her a repeat character, and told the whiners to stuff it.

    I had no compunction recommending it to anyone with kids.

    We’ll have to see how they play it. If it’s an in-your-face kinda thing where they tout it out the entire show, no bueno. If it’s a “eh whatever” and it happens in the background, then meh.

    It’s kind of like the Voltron remake. Was there ANY good reason to make Shiro gay? No. None at all. Was that two seconds in the final season worth throwing out an entire series of great entertainment? Nah. You just rolled your eyes and moved on.

    1. I think part of the problem is that this show was supposed to end last season. At this point, they are just fishing for any reason to unnaturally prolong it’s existence. They are just hamfistedly shoving identity politics garbage into something, that will only result in “eyerolls” and “lost ratings”, rather than the “bump” they were hoping for.

      The Socialism episodes were great: a society where everyone is “equal” without any individuality or joy. They even had their characteristic haunch tattoos replaced with an “equal” sign to drive in the symbolism, with the “leader” living in the only house that wasn’t in the symmetrical pattern that all of the other houses were built in, showing that other common practice in Socialist dictatorships. They even had a re-education camp for brainwashing.

      It was both creepy, and accurate in it’s usually cutesy way.

  17. I hate this self-defeating attitude of “we were defeated in the culture wars.”

    We won the votes. They won the judge-shopping. And no one is standing up, because the LGBT lobby is as cruel as any High School clique.

    I heard Abortion was thought to be over after Roe. Obergefell must not stand.

    1. The funny thing is, until Congress actually CHANGES the DOMA, Obergefell means NOTHING! All laws originate from the house, not a bench.

  19. Daddy, how come there are no gay animals…only gay humans?

    Because God made humans and animals perfect…and the animals were happy with that.

  22. That’s what passes for kid’s entertainment today?

    I’ve never had the displeasure of watching this garbage before, but that’s horrible regardless of the sexuality overtones and encouraging kids to aspire to get a tattoo.

    Go watch an episode of Doraemon from the original 1979 series. It’s funny, clever, and reinforces Japanese values and culture. Look at Tom & Jerry or any Warner Bros cartoons from the sixties – they’re funny, tend toward clever, and encourage kids to pay attention to detail.

    What’s the point of making new kid’s programming when the audience cycles through every few years anyway?

    1. “What’s the point of making new kid’s programming when the audience cycles through every few years anyway?”

      To recruit kids to their side in the culture war, of course.

    1. will this crap ever end? where the hell are the parents?????????? this is so beyond stupid and Marxist

      1. “Where are the parents???????????????”

        Probably at work while the daycare does their job to indoctrinate the preschoolers before the public school system takes over.

  23. Well, there’s another property to not give a flaming fart about anymore! Hopefully, the preachiness will cause everyone to not watch it, and their ratings will implode. We don’t need more homosexual propaganda in our society, we have enough of that cancer.

    Nevermind that this is a completely inaccurate version of “gay life”. Most gays are like those lunatics at the “pride” parades, doing shameful and degenerate things in public. No sense of monogamy, no real love for a single a partner. No shame or genuine pride. Just a bunch of half-naked Slaaneshi cultists grinding on each other or wearing chains and collars, while groping each other. In the nude. In front of children. If ever there was an accurate version of Sodom and Gomorrah, that would be it. It’s just that they are called “San Francisco” and “Boston”.

    This is just another notch in the coming collapse of society. Like a heartbeat. When a society loses it’s religion, whether it be Marduk in Babylon, or Zeus in Greece, or God in Israel, decadence and degenerate stupidity born out of self-worship follow. As surely as flies flock to feces, narcissism flocks to soullessness. Without the adhesive of a strong central belief, society dies. Just like with the Roman Empire, Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, and Fascist Italy, when society loses its faith, evil and tyranny will follow. We can already see it coming, in our cities. That’s where the rot always begins.

    Thankfully, there are more rational people today then we thought. People have already started to push back against the propaganda. The more we expose the the SJW left, with their oligopoly businesses in Silicon Valley, the more ground we gain against popular culture and their fetish flinging, the more people will see it for what it is: propaganda meant to brainwash and manipulate.

  24. I hope I am still alive when the backlash happens with all that is going on in this country. May it be terrible and swift.

  25. My Little Pony has been a cesspool for this kind of stuff for a long while.

  29. Hollywood’s sexual indoctrination of children continues full-throttle — kids must embrace rhymes-with-pay sex… They must be taught early that “wrong is right,” and that Satan is the ruler and king of their hearts.

  30. All of the CW DC comic verse serials have done the same too. The Flash, The Arrow, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow were all shows I watched with my girls. Now every single one has lesbian and gay main characters that far exceed their percentage in the actual population and all have women in lead roles that are either stronger than the men or are showing the men how weak they are.
    The whole DC universe on TV is PC.

    1. The CW is one of the worst for that. I’ve stopped watching them long ago. They are making bat woman a feminist lesbian.

  31. Just sitting in my east Tennessee mountain home, sipping lemonade out on the front porch, watching the birds and squirrels flit around the forest…. and wondering when America will suddenly WAKE THE F*#K UP and do something about this culture rot?

    1. History teaches us that decadent cultures continue to decay until one of two things happens:

      1. The society disintegrates to the point of collapse, whereupon a foreign invader or a tyrant arrives to take over; or
      2. A strong, courageous and wise leader arises to mobilize the people to stop the rot and halt the decay.

      Outcome #1 applies 75-80% of the time.

      1. We tend to think so. Mild winters, hot summers, friendly people, no state income tax. I call it God’s country, but don’t like to brag about it too much…. after all, a lot of Californians are looking for places to escape to.

        1. After this year’s taxes here in California, a friend of mine is currently looking to relocate to Tennessee. He’s a fed up, small business owner that told me he’s F’in done with California. Said he’ll save 750 k in the next 5 years to leave this state.

          Another recently retired law man I know moved there about 6 months ago.

          Just about every normal clear thinking American that is still here wants out. I’m 40, married with a 8 year old little girl. Hopefully I can
          “pop smoke” and leave California when I can retire too. Hopefully my daughter will be ready to leave too.

    2. Many Christians are fighting but a lot of people don’t know about it. The culture destroyers own most of the media outlets so many folks never hear about what Christians and other conservatives do unless it’s something that serves the narrative. Sadly, that leads many to think that the churches aren’t speaking out. On the other hand we do have many churches that are now part of the problem. They think embracing the cultural stink will make them more relevant and more lucrative (lust, covetousness and greed). The cold hard fact is that embracing cultural rot has only accelerated the apostasy of the church and is an embarrassment to the cause of Christ. Jesus called us to come out of the world not join with it. This world is dying and those (including worldly churches) who embrace it will join in its destruction.

  34. It’s not enough that they’ve basically won the culture war on this issue, they have to propagandize children into it too.

    That’s how the win the culture war forever. It will take generations to turn it around.

  35. “Family Channel”

    Not a real family, mind. Just the broken, sham assemblage that leftists pretend is the “new” family.

    Reality: only a tiny percentage of homosexuals are monogamous. There is no real “Modern Family.”

        1. Probably the floral industry, too. I had a girlfriend who was head floral designer at a shop and all of the male designers were gay.

      1. Yep. Under-reported.

        Also, a ridiculous level of predatory pedophilia in “marriages” between two men.

      1. So? Even in the worst of times for the auto companies, Corvettes made money. Doesn’t change overall reality.

        1. Since acquiring Marvel, Disney has had an incredible, unprecedented run. Given its record breaking profits, I don’t think Disney would agree that it is “nowhere near as profitable as it could be” as a direct result of these decisions.

          1. Again, so what? The point was, how much *more* profitable would they be without the *proven* damage-to-sales of SJW awareness messaging that has ruined Marvel Comic sales, hampered the box office for Frozen, and a bunch of other, non-MCU titles recently.

            Even Star Wars films could have made a *lot* more money.

            This is obvious.

            1. I guess I don’t see these claims as at all “proven.” We can’t just look at money lost because some don’t like the direction; we have to look at money made because others do. And we also have to consider other explanations and reason. For example, the SJW direction may have alienated some readers, but there are plenty of other reasons such as the dying print media, over saturation of the key properties, cost, quality, etc. and then there is the offset of these huge exploitation’s such as movies, amusement parks, etc.

              In short, claiming these companies could have made more had it done things differently is speculative without numbers on both sides of the ledger to back it up.

              Bottom line is the bottom line. Disney is making a fortune, and they view the direction as helping, not hurting.

              1. That’s like listening to Kodak explain why digital cameras would never overtake film, back in the 90s.

                1. @t_ump Kodak had a lot of very sound reasons why digital wouldn’t overtake film. Their reasons covered many categories: the technology window, the quality window, the genuine artistry involved with understanding emulsion-based photography, the preferences of professionals, and even the overall cost dynamics.

                  What they completely failed to take into account was two things (at first): popularity in the non-professional market, and the determination of Japanese and Korean companies to dominate photography at all cost.

                  Both of those things are quite similar to Disney continuing to ignore red staters and those companies that are not ignoring red staters.

                  For several years, it looked like Kodak was right about both. The turnaround was nearly instantaneous, brutal, and short-lived. (What kicked them over the cliff they were already heading for was that almost overnight, 3-megapixel cameras became cheap.)

                2. While I think Kodak’s reasons for failure are perhaps a bit less abstract, I do understand the comparison.

                  My question was aimed at your real point. I am not as sure as you are that Disney is in Kodak’s position, rather than Sony’s. While you could be correct, I think public opinion and demographics cut in the opposite direction.

                  Or, perhaps there is enough room for both Disney SJW warriors and the companies that are not ignoring the red staters. So much of culture is fragmented into subgroups and sub-interests, maybe this won’t be any different.

                3. @t_ump I just don’t see demographics being on their side, though. (Their “side” being their recent shift into SJW overdrive).

                  Most folks are sick of “awareness” and “messaging” in entertainment. The success of the MCU films was because there was very little of that. However, with Captain Marvel and plans being announced since then, it’s clear they have decided to flood the zone. Many fans are predicting failure.

                4. When I say the demographics on their side I mean that young people are generally much more accepting of lifestyles that offend conservatives, especially older conservatives.

                  You could be right about people being sick of awareness and messaging, but I don’t think a lot of younger people even consider these issues awareness or messaging. Take Black Panther, for example. Some considered it a messaging/awareness/SJW movie, but I don’t think audiences cared one way or another. They just liked the movie (I didn’t particularly) and it made about $1.3 Billion, greatly exceeded Disney’s projections.

                  As for Captain Marvel, it’s grossed $1.1 Billion despite the anti-SJW backlash. My guess is that the target audience could not have cared less (and probably is not even aware of) the controversy. What some see as SJW messaging, they just see as a movie where the star is a woman.

                  On a more general note, I’ve been thinking that the whole superhero fantasy genre will run out of steam at some point, but I’ve been wrong so far on that point.

                5. @t_ump Captain Marvel had enough canonical “MCU Phase 3” scenes that fans felt they had to see, so they went in enough numbers to help get the box office above the predicted $800 Million level. But theose fans complained, loudly.

                  Black Panther was loved by a *lot* of the sIck-of-SJW-stuff fans that I follow. It was apparently a good movie. I havent seen it yet.

                6. I thought Black Panther was so-so, but I’m pretty sick of the whole genre. I think your post conveys the point I was trying to make, though. If it is a good movie, fans aren’t going to stay away because of SWJ messaging.

    2. Marriage is supposed to be monogamous. Why do they want marriage, and increasingly marriage in a church, if they are not monogamous? To make a mockery of marriage, the family, the church, and God?

      1. Yep. To pretend that their mockery of marriage is real, so they can “shame” people into accepting it.

  36. Saw a commercial for this on Friday night as my wife and I were watching tv with our 8 year old little girl. I immediately changed the channel and looked at my wife. We both had a “WTF” expression on our faces.

    But then again, we live in California so it’s next to impossible to keep this from our little girl.

    1. yeah. condolences. i was born and raised in california, its a wonderful state with great people being driven into the ground by degenerate liberal governance.

    1. will this crap ever end? where the hell are the parents?????????? this is so beyond stupid and Marxist

      1. “Where are the parents???????????????”

        Probably at work while the daycare does their job to indoctrinate the preschoolers before the public school system takes over.

  37. My Little Pony is a children’s show, and I don’t think most parents – Christian or not – are going to want this influencing their kids. I really don’t. It’ll be the tiny percentage like homosexual parents and the ones that support their young children being sexualized like the little boy’s parent(s) that trot him out dressed as a girl.

  38. Good grief! Is this my little pony business still popular? My kids in the 80’s were into them….and considering they have always been rainbow colors, haven’t they always rep’d LGBTQs without saying anything? They have more colors than teletubbies and those were clearly gay!

  39. Well, there’s another property to not give a flaming fart about anymore! Hopefully, the preachiness will cause everyone to not watch it, and their ratings will implode. We don’t need more homosexual propaganda in our society, we have enough of that cancer.

    Nevermind that this is a completely inaccurate version of “gay life”. Most gays are like those lunatics at the “pride” parades, doing shameful and degenerate things in public. No sense of monogamy, no real love for a single a partner. No shame or genuine pride. Just a bunch of half-naked Slaaneshi cultists grinding on each other or wearing chains and collars, while groping each other. In the nude. In front of children. If ever there was an accurate version of Sodom and Gomorrah, that would be it. It’s just that they are called “San Francisco” and “Boston”.

    This is just another notch in the coming collapse of society. Like a heartbeat. When a society loses it’s religion, whether it be Marduk in Babylon, or Zeus in Greece, or God in Israel, decadence and degenerate stupidity born out of self-worship follow. As surely as flies flock to feces, narcissism flocks to soullessness. Without the adhesive of a strong central belief, society dies. Just like with the Roman Empire, Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, and Fascist Italy, when society loses its faith, evil and tyranny will follow. We can already see it coming, in our cities. That’s where the rot always begins.

    Thankfully, there are more rational people today then we thought. People have already started to push back against the propaganda. The more we expose the the SJW left, with their oligopoly businesses in Silicon Valley, the more ground we gain against popular culture and their fetish flinging, the more people will see it for what it is: propaganda meant to brainwash and manipulate.

  40. “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” Mt, 18:6

    Enough said.

  41. Boycotts and getting heartburn don’t work, but ratings do. If no one watches, ad revenues drop and Discovery Family Channel will get the message loud and clear. In their wallet.
    Televisions and radios have buttons to push to change the channel. If parents don’t want their children to watch this garbage, change the dang channel.

      1. I have no idea @dr-Strangelove. Discovery Channel has some pretty cool programming, but I had no idea there was a Discovery Family Channel. This sounds more like something PBS would air.

    1. True, but this goes both ways. Corporations wouldn’t be doing this if they didn’t see it as beneficial to their pocketbooks. The percentage of young people openly identifying as LGBT is steadily growing, and there is also a large contingent of the population who views open inclusion into culture as beneficial. What seems like indoctrination from one perspective can be viewed as chasing the market from another. The reality is that once these things start rolling doesn’t matter one way or another.

      1. @t_ump Corporations make mistakes all the time. In the 90’s Coca-Cola dumped their original product “Coke” and replaced it with “New Coke.” It bombed so badly in the market place, Coke scraped the idea and brought back Coke.

        1. @landscaper BTW, New Coke is being reintroduced in conjunction with the next season of Stranger Things on Netflix.

        2. That’s true and a good point. On the other hand, so far the inclusion of more mainstream LGBT characters in the media doesn’t seem to be a ‘mistake’ from a financial perspective.

  42. Your right Soop, it is a religion. From a Christian perspective I see this as a revival of ancient paganism under the guise of a socio-political movement. The same can also be said of abortion, drug use, violence and a host of other things we see today. I also believe it has prophetic implications.

  43. Gays are only 2% of the population, according to the CDC. But their heavy presence in the culture and media makes people think they are 25% of the population. A quarter of the population is enough for the average voter to think they deserve political deference.

        1. That’s the kind of joke that will increasingly induce blank stares from young people, and others who actually interact with LGBT individuals in their everyday lives. They just don’t get what’s supposed to be funny about suggesting someone is LGBT or associating with LBGT. It’s not an insult to them.

          1. @t_ump That’s because they effed up the Romney-Obama poll so bad. I had forgotten about that. Gallup leans left.

            1. They had Romney winning, so not exactly leaning left on that one. Regardless, Gallup’s general polls are probably about the best we’ve got and their polls on LBGT identity are roughly inline with other available information, including information compiled by CDC. One could argue a percentage point or two, but it seems pretty well established that LBGT identification is on the upswing among younger generations. These generations also happen to be the ones which are of the most interest to advertisers.

              Perhaps just as importantly, polling indicates a growing acceptance to LBGT among society in general.

              1. That shows the power of social media propaganda.

                And also shows that LGBT behavior can be stimulated by environment, and is inborn.

                1. Or it shows that people are becoming increasingly more comfortable with questioning and/or admitting who they really are. Hard to tell which, but regardless, there are relatively more people who identify as LGBT now than not long ago, and more people accepting/supportive of them. Corporations and Entertainment Companies know this, and are adjusting their content accordingly. They certainly aren’t out there trying to lose money.

                  Not sure why you say it is “inborn.” Typo maybe?

  44. I guess I need to pray for Scootaloo now because its upbringing will not be a good example for this “pony”… Funny, you never see about Ponies or other animals in the kingdom prefer to have sex with their same sex partner. We could all learn a lot by observing nature.
    The left can’t even leave a pony cartoon show out of politics. They’ve ruined sports, entertainment and now, kids cartoons.

    1. According to scientists, homosexual activity does exist in nature. Read a bit about the Bonobos or pigmy chimpanzees, supposedly one of the closest human relatives, if you are curious.

      1. so does murder, cannibalism and incest. gonna push those on us too with cartoon ponies?

        1. Nope.

          @TD1 suggested we should be “observing nature” when it comes to these issues. Just noting that nature isn’t as he had suggested, and that we may not like where “observing nature” leads us.

    2. Funny, you never see about Ponies or other animals in the kingdom prefer to have sex with their same sex partner. We could all learn a lot by observing nature.

      Exactly.

      But even if someone could make the dubious argument that animals engage in so-called “homosexuality”, the argument is stupid given that animals engage in other behaviors that no rational thinking human would want to engage, such as infanticide (unless one is a member of The Sinister) or cannibalism (unless one fancies Hannibal Lecter or Jeffrey Dahlmer). Animals hunt and kill other animals so why are we locking up people for murder? They’re just acting on “animal instincts”, right?

      No thanks.

  45. I hope I am still alive when the backlash happens with all that is going on in this country. May it be terrible and swift.

  46. All of the CW DC comic verse serials have done the same too. The Flash, The Arrow, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow were all shows I watched with my girls. Now every single one has lesbian and gay main characters that far exceed their percentage in the actual population and all have women in lead roles that are either stronger than the men or are showing the men how weak they are.
    The whole DC universe on TV is PC.

    1. The CW is one of the worst for that. I’ve stopped watching them long ago. They are making bat woman a feminist lesbian.

  47. Saw a commercial for this on Friday night as my wife and I were watching tv with our 8 year old little girl. I immediately changed the channel and looked at my wife. We both had a “WTF” expression on our faces.

    But then again, we live in California so it’s next to impossible to keep this from our little girl.

    1. yeah. condolences. i was born and raised in california, its a wonderful state with great people being driven into the ground by degenerate liberal governance.

  48. Good grief! Is this my little pony business still popular? My kids in the 80’s were into them….and considering they have always been rainbow colors, haven’t they always rep’d LGBTQs without saying anything? They have more colors than teletubbies and those were clearly gay!
