I'm not usually one to advertise this sort of thing. It's not my place to try and tell people what I think they should do, but this is just so ridiculous in my opinion, that it needs to be stopped if not just because of the sheer moronic and incorrect nature of it.
For clarification, in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, which I watch, there is a character named Derpy, named so because of her characteristic cross-eyed look that was originally an animation error. She gained a large fanbase over time, and became known by the creators as Derpy as well, finally getting a speaking role and confirmation of her name in episode 14 of season 2.
You can see Derpy here in a 50 second clip www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBUVF6…
For those who don't know, the word "Derp" refers to a mistake that, in retrospect, seems painfully obvious and should never have been made. Case in point, her cross-eyed look and ditzy nature
Unfortunately, someone decided to complain about the name, claiming that Derpy is a slur against people with disabilities.
In a word, or three: What. The. Fuck?

Seriously, you don't have to like the show. You can think I'm some kind of freak for being 23 and liking MLP:FiM, I don't care, please, just think about stopping this latest ridiculous attempt to inflict bastardised political correctness on a perfectly innocent show.
