We still have Derpy!

I uploaded this at about 4 am last night. I'm re-uploading this at this time so that more people can easily view the message. Please, if you have already thumbed it the first time, do not thumb again. I have little interest in thumbs, only putting peoples' concerns to rest.

Thank you for viewing and I accept all friend requests!

Gentlemen,
I am quite sure that you are all
well aware of the situation
involving our Derpy by now. I am,
like most of you appalled at the
events that have transpired.
However, I now realize that the
edits that have been made make
little real difference. I will proceed
to explain my reasoning, but first
allow me to tell a story of why this
is an important issue to me.
Barely three weeks ago, I was an
unabashed pony hater. That' s right,
your enemy. While lurking and tro g in
various pony threads, I happened /?
across a certain crossbreed Pegasus y"
which I thought would make some 5,
prime trolling material. However, whilst '
searching for annoying pictures of said
character, I couldn' t help growing fond
of the clumsy pony. Eventually, I
convinced myself to actuall watch the
show because o this character. That' s
right; I am now a fan because of Derpy.
Now for my reasons as to why this
edit changes nothing.
1. Her name is sti Derpy. How .
The name was ply removed, not
replaced. She is st called Derpy in
the previous version, which is
canon. Also, art and
merchandise has been sold with her
named Derpy.
Furthermore, the shows creators
refer to her as Derpy. If that weren' t
enough, the fan community which
gave the character life In the first
has unanimously named her Derpy.
2. Her eyes were made uncrossed.
Derpy has appeared with nornal
eyes before and appears in later
episodes with the crossed eyes we
know and love. Medically, it is
s"; l completely possible for both
A versions to be the same pony, as the
muscle that controls eye movement
K will normally cause a lazy eye only
when she is looking at certain
angles. Thus, there would be times
when a character with a lazy eye
should appear with nornal eyes.
Also, crossed eyes are not linked to
being mentally handicapped.
Therefore, it IS VI on problems that
cause Derpy' s clumsyness, not
menta _ ness. She would be
completely mentally competent.
3. Perhaps most importantly, this
edit is currently only used by
Itunes. All other providers still
provided the orginal scene at the
time I wrote this. Therefore, it can "'
be reasonably deduced that the
original scene should stil be
considred canon as it is
still provided by the vast majority
SI If
Finally, let us not forget who truly created this character
we all know and love. who it was who took what was
intended as an animators joke and developed that joke
into a full character who eventually went on to
earn this now famous shout out on the actual show. It
was us, the fan community. It was us, the fan
community, who gave Derpy _ e. We gave her her name,
her personality, a family, a mail carriers job, and even
an obsession with mum's'. We, the fans, created this
character. The show' s makers simply acknowledged
the character that we created by involving her in the
show. Therefore, no matter what happens on the show,
Derpy ill always be here. Even if she were to be
eliminated from the show entirely, it would not be the
end for Derpy. She will always exist amongst the
community, her creators.
And so, I hope I have been
able to answer your
questions reasonably and
provide some
encouragement.
Sorry about the quality, but
I had a point to get across.
Never surrender'.

You know i was really pissed off at what Hasbro was doing, but then i found this post.   
now I'm glad that derpy will live on. in my anger i had forgotten where she came from and how she started, i was wrong to let my feelings get in the way of logical thinking.

Hmm... Interesting. Why is it though that so many people with down syndrome have crossed eyes, though?
User avatar #7 to #1 - elbrysobrony (02/27/2012) [-]
I'd assume something with the brain affecting the muscles of their eyes, but... oh, look. I'm just using big medical terms to make myself sound smart again. How cute. ^_^
