My Little Pony is No Longer a Pony…Ugh

The most recent incarnation of My Little Pony is the most disgusting venture toy company Hasbro has embarked on.

I get it, there’s other toy companies to compete with. What I don’t get is the giant shift in making girls toys feminine to the point that it’s outrageous. They’re too feminine. Forcing images of “ultra-chic” horses onto little girls who haven’t even had time to figure out sexuality for themselves is not helping them in the least. Instead, doing this forces a continuation of traditional gender roles that can only continue to do damage.

Here’s My Little Pony in the early 1980’s

And here’s what they look like now, as The Equestria Girls
