For those unaware, in the latest episode she was shown clumsily destroying the town, talking with slurred speech, and was officially referred to as “Derpy.” She’s officially the mentally handicapped joke character, just like fandom has always wanted her to be.
I’ve received countless asks about this, so I figure you’re all wanting a reaction. But really, if you’ve read any of my posts regarding the “Derpy Hooves” character, you know exactly how I feel about it.
This is a low I had not expected. I really don’t even know what to say. I have lost so much respect for the creators after this.
Yeah, this pretty much sums it up. I got onto Facebook today and a friend of mine had posted the status: “Derpy is canon and is voiced.”
So I got on YouTube to find the episode… and yeah. That just happened.
“She’s officially the mentally handicapped joke character, just like fandom has always wanted her to be.”
I hope you guys are happy living in your disgusting, privileged worlds.
Yeah, I figured this would be Yamino’s reaction.
Personally, *as* a high-functioning autistic (Aspergers) I don’t see any problem with it. She means well, she’s just clumsy. We got less than a minute of her, and you’re calling that the extent of her personality? She’s just a “Mentally handicapped joke character”? Come on, you’re both writers and artists. Would *you* accept anybody saying your characters are *just* something? Would you not insist there’s other facets that just haven’t been seen yet?
There’s other interpretations of her too, you know. She’s deaf and/or has an inner ear thing (Explaining her way of speaking and her clumsiness), she’s just kinda dim and *really* unlucky, whatever. But nope, instantly to the most reactionary….reaction.
Stop being offended by things that have no relation to you, and stop being offended *for* people. You do not know better than others who these things actually relate to, and the constant ‘This offends me!’ reactions I see bug the ever-lovin’ crap out of me.
You know what? Not even most of the fanbase thinks Derpy is *just* a joke character! They consider her a loving, devoted parent, a hard worker, and a caring friend, who just HAPPENS to have something wrong in her head! And here you guys are, going ‘Oh, she’s just a retarded joke character now, this is so offensive’, based on LESS THAN A MINUTE AND A HALF between her name being spoken and the last frame she appeared on screen!
If you ask me? THAT is more offensive.
