well tbh it’s not that I dislike the character of Discord per se? I just think they handle him really really awfully on the show. Like the show is all about social development and teaching little kids (mainly girls) how to create and maintain friendships and then they just have this one selfish abusive dickbag guy hang around making all the female characters visibly uncomfortable and they never call him out, they just put up with it. It feels so skeevy and gross.
Also the fandom likes shipping Discord and Fluttershy which feels gross too because like, yeah that’s healthy, let’s ship the abusive selfish jerk with the one character who isn’t willing to stand up to his bullshit and thinks she can “change” him. Gr8
I’d like Discord a lot more if the other characters called his shit out more but as it is he’s just ugh. gross and a really bad example to set to the intended audience.
