Lets compare their retarded chatacters: Jimmy and Derpy.

1. Jimmy gets a normal name. Derpy is named after a derogatory term for the mentally handicapped.
2. Jimmy is introduced as a comedian who gets everyone to laugh at his jokes. Derpy is introduced as a clumsy horse who accidentally causes many problems, and everyone laughs at her.
3. Jimmy has a normal voice, but he stutters a lot. Derpy sounds like they got an intern to do their best “retard” voice.

Discuss how South Park is more PROGRESSIVE than MLP:FiM.

A derp is a term that means to mess up in some way. It’s an action, not an adjective. When you derp, it just means you did something wrong in an obvious fashion. It’s not a cheap shot at anybody with a mental disability.

South park also has viewed cumshots, sex, murder, satanic worshiping, and a ton of other disturbing things that are surprisingly still aired on television.


While I love South Park, and this is a decent argument against Derpy, all the other things shown on the show doesn’t exactly make it any more progressive than a porno.

My argument is my argument, deal with it.
The creators themselves even said, and quote, “We’re shocked at some of the things that we can actually put on TV. But it’s eventually come to it being ‘oh, that’s just South Park’, which we find awesome.”

Caaaw, you amaze me with your ability to get people to respond to your arguments just as much as the people who actually respond. Keep up the good work.

Errrrr… Ad hominen is when you attack the person who is posting. So, unless you just happen to be South Park in the form of a person, it isnt ad hominem.

South Park is meant for young adults.
MLP is made for little girls.

South Park is allowed to get away with adult things because it is actually meant for adults.

Considering I’ve been up all night and it’s now 7:45 in the morning, I have nothing better to do.

Then you’ve pretty much been trolled. What’s so hard about ignoring trolls? Really?

I’m not trolling.

But by saying I am trolling, it means you got trolled.

Now, like I said, you have a point on the derpy part. But you’re restricting the fact that you can’t compare anything because they’re different types of shows. Therefore you are saying you are giving zero argument room because you can’t compare anything.

Now THAT… Is discussable.

Seriously, thought, quite frankly, one thing is to represent real problems that adults have to deal with. Another thing is to represent such problems as something perfectly natural, as this couldlead to their banalization. I wouldnt forbit it from being aired, as I am a strong defender of free speech, and believe that people should be mature enought not to base their morals in a show( I said they should, not are ). But I really dont watch this kind of thing, nor recomend it.

I was comparing how they handled their retarded characters.

As in, the entire point of this thread is that South Park has less offensive retarded characters than MLP:FiM

if you actually read the OP, you would know this :>

That’s where you fail to see the obvious. Derpy Hooves has no mental disability, she’s just naturally clumsy. I know people like this IRL.
The reason her voice sounds a bit too slurred is because the voice actor, at the time of recording, didn’t know Derpy was a girl, so she ended up recorded it as a male voice. If she knew it was a girl, she probably would’ve recorded it differently. There are many fan-made flashes that have better Derpy voice acting.

Derpy’s a cute name.

2. Jimmy is introduced as a comedian who gets everyone to laugh at his jokes. Derpy is introduced as a clumsy horse who accidentally causes many problems, and everyone laughs at her.

But her epic fails are what makes her lovable.

3. Jimmy has a normal voice, but he stutters a lot. Derpy sounds like they got an intern to do their best “retard” voice.

I think Derpy’s voice is adorable.

I see South Park as a steaming pile of shit, with a very quiet, casual fanbase.
Meanwhile, MLP: FiM is an average show, but 90% of it’s fanbase is fucking awful.

I dont know what makes you think that way when it comes to bronies. I enjoy the show. It is hard for me to rationally explain why, but I think that its light atmosphere, and the innocence of the characters, remind me of my own childhood, when I was still young and pure and didnt knew how many bad things there are in this world, and help me with the depression I am currently at. Addicionally, it DO has some funny jokes. And, there just arent many shows better lately.

I know there are idiots who cant help but to constantly make any conversation be about it, post series and series of MLP pics, and says that a pony will win a fight against people like Goku because of the power of friendship, and indeed, they are the reason why I was so hesitant to watch the show, and even became a hater during some time before watching it. But they are just the loud minority amongst the silent majority, if you ask me…
