So what do the pony fans here on Tumblr have to say about Anita of the Tropes vs Women in Video Games videos saying this?

Wow, look at that Queen of England. She’s so authoritarian, I hope England throws her out soon!!

Are we going to tell girls they shouldn’t be ballerinas because they’re part of a physically exhausting system that encourages them to take on eating disorders?

Or what about fairies? Are we going to say we shouldn’t tell them to be fairies, because in lore they were malicious creatures?

Anita’s a moron, basically. Children like aspiring to be something important. They don’t give a shit about being a lawyer, a politician, or a webpage designer. They want to be a princess, or a fairy, or a mermaid, or a mommy.

For boys, it’s just as “problematic”— they want to be policemen, soldiers, firemen. Things that lead them to their doom, essentially. Are we going to complain about that? Of course not. It’s the idea of being something cool and important that appeals to them. Not the fact they’re going to suppress thousands under an iron fist.

Look at these fucking dolls.Look at how long their legs are. How tiny their waists are. How unnaturally skinny their arms are. Look at their unrealistic fucking body proportions.And then recognize that it’s a fucking doll. A toy.Like most girls, I have grown up around dolls. I was very into Barbie—a Barbie tricycle, a Barbie bicycle, Barbie school supplies, and so on until I grew out of it. Dolls and their unrealistic body proportions have had no bearing on my life because they are nothing more than that. They are not real.Would it be nice if dolls had more body diversity? Of course. But it’s not necessary. I think parents should spend a little less time trying to get companies to change how their dolls look and more time teaching their daughters that a doll is a toy and that they shouldn’t aspire to look like a doll, the same way The Little Mermaid is a cartoon and they shouldn’t try growing a tail either.

FUCKING THANK YOU
