The big gay was just a diversion. The real moral of She-ra is that it is actually good and evil that must exist on a scale, moral absolutism is a force of destruction and that the only way to break out of a cycle of abuse is to sever with your evil cat.

Cat-ra was never gonna be happy competing in the same field as Adora because their evil mom would favor her no matter what. Its not so much being in the shadow as having the shade thrown over her because it didn't matter if she showed her direct superiority to Adora in any way, their evil mom and command was intrinsically going to favor Adora. This is the root of the mild but constant bullying you see her doing and gloating when she was clearly superior such as during the monkey bars swinging thing, its a catharsis thing. The fact she didn't change sides is probably because now she had an opportunity to grow unimpeded and finally exercise her potential, gently caress over evil mom and become the gay cat boss lady she always wanted to be. In fact its probably only that she loved Adora that she didn't slit her throat growing up and drop her body on hordak's pillow or something. She'd have probably defected if Adora had just proposed 'Lets loving ditch this place and evil mom' instead of 'Join the rebels with me' because the latter would've been Adora casting off her unknowing privilege AND pissing off evil mom while leveling the playing field. instead she chose to become the chosen one of the opposite side... essentially being the chosen one AGAIN in a new setting.

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.

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.

It's probably Princess Sewanna or something. Alternately, Scorpia can do some really fine work with her tail.

Pretty sure they don't allow princesses into horde-city generally save for a few non obvious (closeted if you will...) exceptions like scorpio and entrapta.


They probably have some uniform loom and Catra had to argue with the underpaid operator for a couple of hours about how, yes, a red and black, obviously evil tux... a tux... no.. a tux...

My only problem with the show is isn't hordak the boss of all the horde so why does a trainee rookie get promoted to force captain which is like... directly answerable to him and also apparently a select cadre, was that one guy who was a drill instructor in the first episode a force commander? Like does Catra run the entire horde for a while?? I thought scorpia was a force captain of the same rank?? Is there a LOT of force captains?? That would make sense but we never see any others and the entire horde seems to be like four people and a thousand mooks I don't know what the gently caress is going on with this evil hierarchy!!

word. theres a whole invasion / rebellion full of mooks and people who get zero screen time and characterisation. I thought the DnD episode was gonna end with them leaving the tent to 'just wing it' only to find the rebellion had taken the fort without them and thanks to scorpia's paranoia and poor planning it worked but only at a high cost and there would be a chastening and sobering all around.

Isn't Entrapta guilty of this as well? I know she has a massive fanbase here but I just don't get it. Sure, she's "blinded by science" but she is such in so ethically-blind a way that I don't find her sympathetic at all.

She's probably one of the more broken people in the show... Her parents have, presumably, been dead for longer than she can remember, she was raised literally by machines. There's a throw away joke with an anime robot that really underlines the real life parallels but basically she is someone who is so walled off from reality that people don't quite catch her deep deep damage. She's alone and lonely even when surrounded by people, never makes true connections except when she finally meets another deranged scientist who can keep up with her and is basically someone who has no links to the world at large which is why shes such an amoral shut in weeaboo incel.

Which isn't to say shes sympathetic in fact its basically the problem that shes the opposite. She doesn't reach out and she walls you out too unless you're into her specific brand of weird bullshit in which case... you're hordak??

It is bad to roll everyone up into a binary of either "white" or "non-white". There's more than one kind of non white person in the world, and they aren't interchangeable.

So you want them to specify specifically which non white race they mean? Or do you think maybe they literally do just mean non white in general and the term is perfectly appropriate and you're just having a moment that would be better suited to twitter.

Lemee hit you with: It turns out the 'real' horde is basically a pack of meth addicted space hillbillies and horde-prime is mad jealous because Hordak comes back with a girlfriend and an army of his own so he tries to kill him and it turns out The New Horde with its fancy eternia technology beats the OG horde hands down because the OG horde is a pack of genetic dead ends and crappy robots and hordak is like 'why the gently caress did I ever wanna be like you, you thinly veiled allegory for inter-generational violence?' turns out he got thrown away specifically because he was too smart and competent for Horde prime to deal with.

I think its more 'wow scorpia does not feel like the natural fit for this nor does this feel like it fits just... at large' like:

Plant control - Flowery hippy
Ice powers - Kid dressed in furs
Sparkly powers like teleportation - Girl with glittery hair
Water powers - Mermaid girl
Red force lightning but also limited telekinisis sometimes - A scorpion woman with pincers instead of hands.


Its kinda jarring but than again I don't know what 'scorpion themed' powers would actually look like or why one of the five crystals belongs to a dynasty of scorpion human hybrids to begin with anyway.

Catra's familiar was part of her healing process. Someone who knew her only after she started to work on being a better person and loved her, showing just how far Catra had come from her bad old habits.

Dunno, felt more like circumstances once again twisting around someone who had fundamentally not changed. Feels less like Catra reached across and more like the entire world fell rear end backwards and they were all literally imprisoned in a space with Catra. Catra dosn't develop so much as she is given a figure who shows how she 'really feels' she isn't really forced to communicate honestly or actually do much differently. The tide changed, not the trash floating on it.
