First of all, I would like to say just how ridiculous this is. Are you kidding me? Teenage males and females, worshiping animated, talking ponies... My Little Pony is meant for children, and by children, I mean CHILDREN. Not teenagers who think like children. Grow up, people! I'm honestly hoping this fad ends soon. It goes to show just how childish this generation of humans really is. We are not worshipping them. And no, it's not just for children, If you can just watch the season 4 finally , it easily proves that its for all ages.

People like to think that judgement is synonymous with bigotry or discrimination when really it's more synonymous with conclusion or decision. When someone says "Don't judge me" what I hear is "Don't make any conclusions about me" and really that's just nonsensical. And to answer the question of if we'll ever have a world without outspoken and potentially obnoxious conclusions and criticisms? No, and I'm not sure we should. Some conclusions deserve to be said louder.
