    Don't worry, as long as you avoid the "social justice warriors", as they dub themselves, you should be fine.

    I didn't say I like watching it. Learn reading comprehension.

    I've never watched the show but seriously, why would you care if all the trains happen to be boy trains? The operative term is 'train'...
    The engines are boys but the cabooses...

    I better just shut up now. I'm already always still in trouble again.

    Not everyone has as negative views about the show/franchise as this lady. It seems it is helping Autistic children. However I don't see how that role would be diminshed in the least bit if for example they introduced more female characters.
    Have you tried to find videos for young children that don't feature girls to the virtual exclusion of boys lately? There are paltry few. And young boys look for male main characters as much as young girls look for female main characters.

    Poe's Law seems more applicable to feminism than fundamentalism. Fake Christianity is not all that hard to spot.

    How.

    Honestly sometimes I think feminists are all super smart, and they're just laughing at us while they troll the heck out of us. And maybe all this feminist propaganda is just code talk for something only super smart people can even understand. I honestly hope that's what's going on.

There was a similar piece by another feminist a little while back arguing that Princess Celestia's horn in My Little Pony was a phallic symbol, and represented male dominance.....also that, because Celestia is white, she represented white dominance over all other races. They just seem like a parody because of how inconceivably insane they are.
    Heh.
