Because humans are idiots. They rather keep seeing the Swastika as the symbol of all evil, and empower the message Nazis sent even more that way, than ignoring everything the Nazis ever said about it and used it for, judging it by its original meaning and promoting it in the context of that original meaning.
Demonizing the symbol further only ruins something historically innocent and positive and gives Nazi ideology more power than it already has, while promoting the symbol in its original context and bringing that context back into the consciousness of people would take the power Nazis have over this symbol away.


@Wispy Tuft

It's not the terror organization ISIS that ruins the name, it's people like you who ruin it by judging it based on false merit and a wrong meaning. You should google "The egyptian goddess Isis" and improve your historic knowledge.
Here, I even did it for you:

I think we've gone far enough with this argument. If you really don't like the name Isis, you can vote for something else in the poll.

I agree words only have the meanings we give them and don't have any inherent power unless we give them power. But here's the thing. We can't count on everybody just dropping the negative meaning of a word. Even if everyone here agreed to embrace the old meaning of Isis (IE the god Isis) we'd still look fucking bonkers to everybody outside our circle.
To put it bluntly this isn't a free speech issue, it's you trying to give muh waifu a shit name. Please stop.

I actually already knew who Isis was. I'm not ruining the meaning of the name isis, the people out there blowing themselves up in the name of hatred are.

Sphinx is winning for ONE reason alone.
There are people who don’t want a name change and people who do.
People who don’t want a name change will vote for Sphinx ’character’
People who do want a name change will be forced to spread their focus across 15 new options.
They will have to compete against conflicting ideas and other suggestions.
There will never be a unanimous agreement of any of the new names.
Therefor, there is no way a new name will win.
There needed to be a pole before the name pole that asked people if the sphinx should be renamed at all (yes) or (no)

I'm really not sure how I feel about one of the options in one of them just literally being what they basically already called. Like, I want a name for that character, not just that they are somepony's mum.

*poll

But yeah, it feels really unfair to people who want the Sphinx named and are getting screwed out of it due to how the poll is set up.

Then again, in regards to Trixie's mom, I kind of wish there was a second round for that one instead of the current poll being the final one so the losing names at least get a shot at being selected instead of tossed out.

oh, i realize AFTER i put my votes in that voting for more than one was an option
