This is a fun article.
Also I never realized what a beautiful font PT Serif is to read. Going to use it for something asap.
“UPS engineers found that left-hand turns were a major drag on efficiency. Turning against traffic resulted in long waits in left-hand turn lanes that wasted time and fuel, and it also led to a disproportionate number of accidents. By mapping out routes that involved “a series of right-hand loops,” UPS improved profits and safety while touting their catchy, environmentally friendly policy. As of 2012, the right turn rule combined with other improvements — for the wow factor, UPS doesn’t separate them out — saved around 10 million gallons of gas and reduced emissions by the equivalent of taking 5,300 cars of the road for a year.”—

Bronies invaded and took over what was meant to be a safe and healthy environment for little girls to learn about friendship and sharing. It was meant to be a show that little girls could watch without the influence of older men. It was created by girls, for girls. How many opportunities are there for female writers and animators to create a show tailored to the growth and development of little girls?
Bronies took over a safe space for children and turned it into their own playground. The ponies are representing six little girls — six children — and Bronies have turned them into a sexual fantasy. Fuck, someone created a blog turning one of the princesses into a sexual predator as a ~joke~. Men have made felt ponies that they can literally fuck. They draw crude and disgusting fan art.

Because men’s opinions aren’t voiced or relevant; because the male characters on the show aren’t the main characters; because the creators are trying their damndest to keep that show for little girls. Apparently having specifically female-centered content is misandry.
My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic had the potential to be revolutionary. But of course, men had to come in and fuck it all up. Again. Because God fucking forbid girls have a tiny sliver of something especially for them.
In a SHOCKING twist, the 17-year-old is a chick. On Tuesday night, James Franco was probably Googling the answer to the question, “What is the age of consent in New York state?” Because he supposedly tried to get on a 17-year-old girl from Scotland after meeting her outside the stag
