mylittlepony_box.jpgI 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.

  2. LOL! Well- Indeed their is licking going on! I am about to list my line of My Little Pony’s right now and I stumbled upon this-LOL! That is funny stuff, but I wouldn’t say it has anything to do with lesbian separatists, its just what most animals do.

    I don’t think the My Little Ponies have to be asexual. Rather, maybe the MLP’s have an arrangement set up much like what the Amazons had with Gargareans (a neighbouring tribe comprised of only males) where the MLP’s traditionally visit a male MLP tribe and mate with them, raising the female-born MLP’s and slaughtering or abandoning the male-born MLP’s.

    The fact that rainbows and rainbow colors exist everywhere in the MLP motif is evidence enough for those in the know to express there is an undercover desire *at least* to express homosexuality in the theme.

    I believe male and female horses do live apart from each other.

    Awesome. I was just watching some of the ol’ MLP again, and parthenogenesis is the first thing that popped into my head when contemplating the young’uns who are carbon copies of certain adults.

    However, I would posit that the MLPs reproduce via both parthenogenesis AND sexual reproduction. Males do exist, but they would appear to live in vagrant bachelor groups that only intermittently visit the central matriarchal commune. These visits would conveniently explain the baby ponies for whom no adult counterpart exists.

    In-depth study of this unique equine species’ sociology and reproductive biology is clearly required.

  10. Adding a little bit of a background story and a few more characters to Alice’s adventures didn’t do as much as i thought it would for the story. Truthfully i wanted to love this movie, I’m a huge Tim Burton/ Johnny Depp fan. But this just didn’t do it for me. I came out of the theater wondering if it were just the mediocre script or the director who had failed to meet my expectations. The best part of this movie is probably Johnny Depps portrayal of the mad hatter who truly is mad. However, Mia Wasikowska presents Alice in a dull manner that had me checking my watch every ten or fifteen minutes. Overall this film isn’t awful, but at the same time its no masterpiece, for an interesting film to look at I suppose this would be an alright choice, however if you want a great story and compelling acting, you might want to check out something else, because this isn’t the movie you’re looking for.

    I think the reasons you presented (combined with the frequent rainbow imagery) do indicate that it is a lesbian community…and that the show is possibly used to challenge the stereotype of “aggressive” lesbians.
