I’m at that point in my pile o’stuff to review where I’m down to manga I’m less enthusiastic about, box sets of anime and Light Novels, so it’s taking me longer to make my way through things, and some of those things are things I keep talking about over and over. ^_^
So…way back a few years ago, when My Little Pony ~ Friendship is Magic popped up on the scene, I asked you all whether you thought Rainbow Dash was lesbian or not. Obviously, I was being silly. MLP~FiM is a kid’s show, pleasantly free of romantic complications (unless you count Spike’s crush on Rarity.) But as I watched “Suited for Success” on Disk 3, I had an epiphany.
When Rarity tells Rainbow Dash that she’s making her a dress for the Great Galloping Gala, RD’s response is, “A what for the what now?” At which point I looked up from my work computer, laughed and said, “Okay, she’s one of us.” It’s not just that she’s interested in athletic endeavor, is brash and uninterested in finery – it was the complete and total disinterest in/unawareness of the typical rites of, shall we say, more average ponies. Applejack is a tomboy. Rainbow Dash is a lesbian.
Overall – 8
I don’t even know if I’m being serious or not, so don’t ask me. ^_^
