If you think that what you’re saying to others about him are “facts and evidence”, then you don’t understand the fundamentals of a debate of this caliber.
In Layman’s Terms, I think you need to stop being so overly defensive towards Discord and claiming that what you’re saying is objective when clearly it isn’t. This whole discussion has been about the vocal minority subset which makes him and his fans look bad and sad to say, but you’re a part of that problem. It’s best to just chill and not get so worked up about this, okay?

Arrogant much? The number of people you’ve convinced who don’t already agree with you about Discord is pretty much zero.

“Discord doesn’t learn anything” yes he does learn but its not a wish fantasy, its subtle and change takes time. People don’t go from dictator to OCD shy Nice girls in one episode. If a character changes subletely instead of becoming ms perfect apparently there terribly written lmao, absolutely ridiculous. I don’t even take discord hate seriously anymore

Unfortunately:
The problem is characterization.
If he was characterized as this trickster god who just likes messing with people, and he completely owned it, then he’d be this loveable asshole.
If he was characterized as this unfathomably powerful being trying to learn empathy, that would be compelling.
Instead, we get the worst of both worlds, where Discord gets to be an inconsiderate asshole who conveniently can’t be held accountable for his own actions. With the harm he’s done far outweighing the good.

Let’s move away from discord and onto another thing:
How come Posey tends to be a butt monkey?

Im not envious of anyone, one on one debate with dwk i would absolutely deconstruct everything that comes out of his mouth. He’s funny ill give him that but he definitely is extremely one dimensional when it comes to discord. Literally the only reason i can’t watch him is because of his opinions on discord

Appreciate it but I don’t care much about rep on a site that highly upvotes and favorites things like foalcon. But absolutely right that its the internet.
@Background Pony #11F7
Ngl dwk’s attitude, the same as most big discord haters who go on and on about how much they hate, often act the exact same way, its a projection lmao. They both are the same discord and dwk, there both just funny about it.

Uh, that feeling when you give someone the rod for their own back on accident. Yeah, let’s talk about Posey instead…
@Background Pony #EDB8
I’ve not watched Tell Your Tale yet because the art style’s not for me, but I’ve read about it. I think it’s because she’s racist? Or at least was depicted as one in Make Your Mark, because I remember her having some valid points.
And since G5 feels (at least to me) like its mission was to fight the evils of racism first and actually tell a story only after that, well, Sprout hightailed it out of Maretime Bay so there’s only Posey left to bash for “being racist.”
Though maybe it’s only because the writers find it funny, like Mr. Myoozik said.

Tell me what u mean by this and ill move on.
@Roseluck
Posey is driven to her reasons due to being in situations, were magic has just caused her trouble. In she does come around later to be kinder, “her being racist and a b word in all that” is just another case of a fandom making a character out to be worse than they are.

In Make Your Mark, Posey has a massive distrust towards unicorns and pegasi ever since the magic came back because they kept getting in her way and believing that these two species have a superiority complex for it.
In Tell Your Tale, she always gets hit by a lot of slapstick, mostly by Izzy so my guess is that probably all of this is some form of karma over her actions in the special. But I’m still sticking with my simple answer that it’s a writing choice like with Squidward.

thn when t comes to the mshpas that happen to Posey, there’s no big deeper meaning to t or t trying to build up to something more.
It’s nothing more then the writers just finding it funny (I think a lot of people forgot that butt monkey characters exist n cartoons lmao)

@Mr.Myoozik
Thanks for the info.
Yeah, I agree with your take on it. That’s why I said “depicted as a racist” rather than actually calling her one. There was also Sunny making Maretime Bay’s town day about everyone instead without asking for permission or caring what anyone else in town thought about it… Though maybe I’m misremembering the special, I only watched it once when it came out.
As for Squidward, I (somehow) never watched Spongebob though I’ve heard how badly he’s treated. Gotta admit that’s one weird thing to choose about a character or a story, but it’s not like I have (professional) writing experience or even see the point of butt monkeys.
