So people are trying to get the MLP people to do something about "Derpy Hooves", because "derpy" is an ableist slur. One of the people listed to contact is the actress who voices the pony. I didn't think any of this was the actress's fault, and I felt kind of bad for her, getting all these e-mails from justifiably angry people.

I was wrong. http://www.journalfen.net/community/fandom_lounge/1152140.html?thread=33940364#t33940364

The actress's response is the most condescending, ableist, stuck up her own ass, what the fuck I don't even know what that is that I've ever seen. But I have to thank Tabitha St. Germain. Now, any time anyone doesn't know what this whole "ableism" thing is about, I can point to that.
