I think the angry alt-right neckbeards have moved onto something called "High Guardian Spice" that Crunchyroll is making that's too woke for their standards or something.

I was going to say "well the Horde has the advantage of sheer numbers" but I guess thinking about it you don't ever actually see that until the finale, which was still only a couple dozen guys

Meanwhile, there was an entire palace filled with royal guard who were all apparently sitting around doing nothing during the final battle.

I know the show is all about the princesses and their friends, but maybe don't show heavily armed troops standing around and then totally ignore they exist when the largest battle of their lives is literally happening on their doorstep.

I'm actually sort of glad that the initial backlash was so swift and vehement, because now She-Ra will not fall prey to the cancer that metastasized in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fandom, where all the toxic cis-het dudes got in on the ground floor and royally hosed up the fandom with pony porn and gangstalking voice actors; because post-Gamergate ~discourse~ now demands that angry internet men immediately declare their enmity towards any media property that even tangentially involves people who are not horribly irredeemable people, nobody with bad intent is going to touch the She-Ra fandom with a ten foot pole, leaving it a perfect and unsullied fully automated luxury gay space communist utopia.

I wonder if it will turn out that the Eternians used to be intersteller warlords and conquered other planets using portals, and they were the Old Ones. The reason Eternia is so funky is because it got nuked to hell when the Empire was destroyed in a revolt.

Hordak kidnapped Adora from Randar in hopes she could unlock the old ones technology, but when He realized he didn't need it he got bored of the project.

The thing with My Little Pony was that the brony community founded itself on the principles of inclusiveness and acceptance, then took said principles way too far - seemingly believing there to be no moral difference between shunning someone for being a grown man interested in a show aimed at preteen girls (or being differently-sexual), and shunning someone for being an irredeemable creep. Evidently, they've wised up since then.

They aren't all nazis, but there are definitely nazi bronies, and thanks to brony adherence to the Geek Social Fallacies they tend to not get kicked out of groups (though maybe that's changed in recent years, iunno)

Now that I'm thinking about it, I'm a little surprised there hasn't been more nazi attention on She-ra, she's pretty drat Aryan ubermensch. 8 feet tall, blonde hair, etc. I guess the nazis must really be chuffed that the teenage cartoon doesn't have bomb-rear end tiddies

Nazis and other unlovable ideologies tend to infiltrate spaces filled with spineless nerds for a reason. That said perhaps this is the way ideas die in a larger social context. Being relegated to the grease-trap and made so painfully externally obvious that you can identify a nazi by the smell of their unwashed neckbeard before they even have a change to engage their slack jaws and call you a human being.

Adora keeps company with people of all races, genders, and sizes. Her behavior - even initially when still indoctrinated by a Horde upbringing - is anathema to any stripe of bigot. She’s willing to admit she’s ignorant and wrong.

It's not at all unusual for people to believe (or at least claim to believe) that prejudice is bad except for whomever they're prejudiced against because purple monkey dishwasher.

Most of the people who've spoken out against gay marriage had no clue that their arguments were once used almost word-for-word against interracial marriage. I've even heard that a fair amount of support for California's Prop 8 came from predominantly-black churches.

I've watched a couple episodes of Discovery, and it seems like mostly a war story, so I'd have expected the complete opposite reaction to this. I guess underestimating how stupid people can be does not pay off. :shrug:

They saw a black woman, a gay man and a thiccccc woman as leads and they assumed the SJWs got to it. They probably got upset that the Klingons were trying to Make Quo'noS Great Again.

At the time it was very progressive; Star Trek was the first American live-action series with an interracial cast. It also gave a black woman a role as an officer at a time when they were mostly only cast as servants.

Sure, by today's standards it may come up short in a number of areas, but at the time it's exactly the kind of thing that would have gotten people up in arms about "SJWs".
