" My Little Pony fans have had a Nazi problem for a long time."
From the article:
As illustrated by the massive revolt on Reddit earlier this month, Black Lives Matter has led to a rethinking of what online communities are for and whom they serve on a very basic level. That the conversation has managed to penetrate one of the most head-in-the-sand groups on the whole internet speaks to how far the movement has already gone in challenging people where they are—in their imaginary worlds, in their anonymous message threads, and in all of the places where there have long been no rules.
“The fandom has to recognize that it doesn’t exist purely within the vacuum of an online fantasy,” Acesential said. “It exists in a world where these problems are still here.”
Escapism is now white supremacy.
The real scandal is the fact that these characters look nothing like actual ponies and are not even particularly cute.
Wow, the imagined hoax racism is becoming more and more bizarre. The people promoting this stuff belong handcuffed in padded rooms.
