Now, I really hope I will not have to repeat myself and that the silly name calling will stop.

 So, I keep seeing this:

Lauren Faust is a feminist

Bronies are very proud to watch a show that aims at little girls, and they have all the rights to be. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a good show, but there are still issues with it that find their origin in this: Lauren Faust is a feminist.

So, what is wrong with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic? Misandry.

You do not believe me? Well, let’s see.

  1. Males are being underrepresented, there are no male lead characters in this show.
  • Spike is a baby dragon, not a pony, plus he has a minor role in the show, thus he cannot be considered as a main lead. Moreover, in one episode, he undergoes puberty and starts growing up as a real male dragon, this is treated like a disease that must be cured and the female leads do everything to turn him into a baby again. This is symbolic of females and feminists infantilising men in order to keep them under their power, this is highly misandrist of them to decide when Spike should be allowed to be himself or how he should be.
  • Big Macintosh is another secondary male character in the show. He is shown as a shy young stallion who lives in a matriarchal family and can barely talk. See? Males are reduced to silence in My Little Pony.
  • Shining Armor is only there so that Princess Cadence can have a background story.

You think I exagerate? Just think about it, every male cartoon or anime nowadays has a prominent female character. Teenage Ninja Turtles? They have April. Code Lyoko? Yumi, Aelita and Sissi. Pokemon? Misty, May and Dawn. Yugioh? Mai and Anzu. X-Men? Too many to make a list of them.

Yet, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has no prominent male character. And you don’t have any problem with that because you believe females deserve representation but not male?

  1. Equestria is a matriarchal society. Every single leader in Equestria is female and every male who tries to get power is a villain
  • Princess Celestia and Princess Luna are both semi-goddesses queens, they have no know close relative and are immortal. 
  • Princess Cadence is shown to be the nice queen whereas King Sombra, a male, is a villain.
  • The Ponyville Mayor is a female as well, males have been shown in Ponyville but do not seem to occupy any important job. 
  • Spitfire is the leader of the Wonderbolt Academy even though they could have chosen any of the males for once.
  • The Apple family seems to follow the same rules. Granny Smith and Applejack are both heads of the family. Big Macintosh never has a word to say in that.
  • Big sisters are shown as more important that fathers (Rarity & Sweetie Belle) and brothers (Applejack & Apple Bloom).

It’s not that bad, you say? It’s just meant to show young girls that they can be anything they want? But what about young boys who are not shows that they can be anything they want? That they must either be stereotypical men (and thus, they’ll be “villain”) or under the wing of females?

  1. Male villains have worse motives that female villains.
  • Discord only wished to destroy harmony for fun.
  • King Sombra wanted power but did not care about his people.
  • Nightmare Moon really was Luna and deserved pardon.
  • Queen Chrysalis was treated as a threat, but she was not that bad considering that she was trying to feed her people.

There, can you see it? Misandry. Males are seen as a threat, they deserve no pardon, no mercy, they cannot be heard and have no positive motives, they ruin a perfect matriarchal society.

Despite its popularity among males, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is one of the most subtly misandric show I have seen. Sure, it is not as blatantly obvious as Magical Girl animes in which there are basically no male at all, but it teaches women that men are bad and must be ruled or kept as children if they want to keep their power.

It does not teach equality. 

It does not teach female legitimate empowerment.

It teaches feminism, female superiority and matriarchy.

(just moving other people’s posts to make space, you guys did an excellent job pointing out the BS but I worried it seem a bit crowded. If you want to read there points, click here )

"Bronies are very proud to watch a show that aims at little girls, and they have all the rights to be. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a good show, but there are still issues with it that find their origin in this: Lauren Faust is a feminist.”

And that’s a problem how? No really, unless I see her trying to castrate someone in the name of equality I really don’t think Mrs. Faust’s idea of feminism is malevolent at all

  1. Males are being underrepresented, there are no male lead characters in this show.

    I call BS. While he didn’t get much screen time in Season 1, Spike had a pretty sizable role in Seasons 2-3, he got several of his own episodes between now and then he could be effectively considering the deuteragonist to the Crystal Empire 2-parter.


  • Spike is a baby dragon, not a pony, plus he has a minor role in the show, thus he cannot be considered as a main lead. Moreover, in one episode, he undergoes puberty and starts growing up as a real male dragon, this is treated like a disease that must be cured and the female leads do everything to turn him into a baby again. This is symbolic of females and feminists infantilising men in order to keep them under their power, this is highly misandrist of them to decide when Spike should be allowed to be himself or how he should be.

    1. No, he doesn’t have a small role. Hells, by now he’s effectively the 7th main character.

    2. The growth cycle he was undergoing literally WAS a disease. For anyone who didn’t see it, the show basically states and displays that an increase in a young dragon’s sense of greed leads to a rapidly increased growth rate. Spike starts stealing items left and right and he goes from a placid baby drake roughly the size of a small child to a whale sized, rampaging adult dragon. This DOES back you claim…. until we see that this is an unnatural happening since we see Spike as a baby, teenage dragons; and adult dragons in the show, displaying that dragon growth usually is natural. The more Spike grew with the ‘greed growth’, the less and less sentient he became to the point his adult form was indistinguishable from a rampaging predator (once again, different from the clearly sentient adult dragon we see). Thus your comparison is incomparable.

  • Big Macintosh is another secondary male character in the show. He is shown as a shy young stallion who lives in a matriarchal family and can barely talk. See? Males are reduced to silence in My Little Pony.

    1. If its so matriarchal, why is it we never see him getting ordered around?
    2. Or consider we see other male characters being just as vocal as the females, Mac could just be quiet…you know… like Hasbro said he was

  • Shining Armor is only there so that Princess Cadence can have a background story.

    Did we even watch the same Season finale? Cadence is barely even present until the latter part and the entire reason the cast goes to the wedding is became of Shining. They have a pretty even 50/50 divide on screen time


  • Equestria is a matriarchal society. Every single leader in Equestria is female and every male who tries to get power is a villain

    1. What a shocker, the show meant for girls (granted though, formatted so families could watch it) has more female rulers than male ones.
    2.  Matriachy or Patriarchy implies one gender is oppressed by the other. Now the degree of oppression can be argued person to person, but the point stands. Not once as there been any indication of inequality in the show, so it seems quite evident the male population of the show’s universe don’t give a damn about the fact that by chance their monarchs happen to be female and ONE male who tried to seize power by force was a villain

  • Princess Celestia and Princess Luna are both semi-goddesses queens, they have no know close relative and are immortal. 

    Except Faust and the production team said they aren’t deities, just very powerful and very long lived…. And this remotely related to misandry how? I’m starting to get the feeling you just hate female rulers

  • Princess Cadence is shown to be the nice queen whereas King Sombra, a male, is a villain.

    Or they could have just made Sombra a male character because he was based on a male character (Sauron) and we so far had a majority of female villains to male villains (2 to 1), and could use some evening out

  • Big sisters are shown as more important that fathers (Rarity & Sweetie Belle) and brothers (Applejack & Apple Bloom).

    When the hell did that episode air? No seriously were we ever watching the same show?


Male villains have worse motives that female villains.

  • Discord only wished to destroy harmony for fun.
  • King Sombra wanted power but did not care about his people.
  • Nightmare Moon really was Luna and deserved pardon.
  • Queen Chrysalis was treated as a threat, but she was not that bad considering that she was trying to feed her people.

1. Yes while Sombra was undoubtably evil, he seemed pretty content with 1 region to rule. Chrysalis’ own words strongly imply she intended to go on full conquest mode. We also are directly told by Chrysalis her hive’s actions in the finale were a power grab, not just trying to find food.

2. Nightmare Moon wanted to basically make daytime, the very lifeblood of all life in the world via the food chain, extinct. Let me sum it up. Discord caused some calamities via chaos, Sombra made living in a specific kingdom hell, Chrysalis wanted to conquer land; but Nightmare Moon would have KILLED ALL LIFE ON THE PLANET
