One response to ““Most of our choices, as women, are looked upon with scorn””

    Honestly, this is perhaps one of the underappreciated good things about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Yes, “friendship” is a cheesy, girly thing to centre your cartoon on, and yes, most of the characters are girly archetypes of one kind or another — but the archetypes are presented all together as a wide variety of good ways to be, and their shown as friends even when they sometimes misunderstand each other because of their differences. It’s a lovely exercise in liking women and girls.
