I noticed that nothing has yet been posted about My Little Ponies. In my opinion, the MLPs are definitely living in a lesbian separatist colony. I’ll look primarily at the movie (I don’t remember what it was called…probably just The My Little Pony Movie or something. The plot revolves around this evil purple stuff that threatens to destroy their little village). First, all the My Little Ponies are female. No males appear at all until later in the movie, when they consult this elf guy, and then later when the brother of Megan (the female human heroine arrives. When these male characters appear, the sexism surrounding their interaction with the other female characters (the human boy acts braver than the girls and scoffs at them, and the male elf guy is their source of advice and wisdom…interesting, since he is practically the only male character, that this would be his role) is disappointing, but a lesbian feminist theme emerges nonetheless. As the movie opens, we see the MLPs’ happy little world…all female, adults and young-‘uns living together communally. Interestingly, there are often “baby” versions of the same pony sold in stores. This would support the theory that the ponies reproduce by parthenogenesis, an asexual reproductive process that would result in the same genes in the daughter as in the mother. And, due to age differences within the colony/commune, reproduction is probably going on. The ponies are very happy and supportive of each other. Soon the movie’s villains are introduced..a witch and her two daughters! Here, as well, we have all-female characters in a close-knit (though, because they’re evil, dysfunctional) family relationship! During a song-and-dance routine, some male relatives are mentioned, but disparagingly. It’s an all female world that we see (well, almost). Oh, and in one of the shorter MLP videos, during a part of the song that mentions “wiping away tears” or somesuch, one pony affectionately licks another’s face. I think more analysis is needed on the phenomenon of lesbian-feminist My Little Ponies.
