"Fans are welcome to interpret things how they like", he says. I interpret that to mean "We know you all are comparing her to Bulk Biceps, but we can't be bothered to come up with a proper explanation of why he can fly and she can't".

That and/or "We're trying to have it both ways" — that is, satisfy both the fans that were hoping that she'd eventually fly and the ones who were holding her up as a role model for people with disabilities. Though they could just as easily have done that by letting her get her hooves on some piece of assistive technology.

I'm still highly disappointed that they never took the obvious opportunity to let Scootaloo normalize disability in kids by just outright calling it that and letting her use adaptive aids to fly the same way she's been using her scooter as a replacement. She's a certified little badass on that scooter, she'd be a sky demon with some kind of folding hang glider where she could use her high-rev wings for thrust.

Realistically, a Pegasus not being able to fly would be as common an occurence in Equestria as humans who can't walk in this world— there have to be well established in-universe adaptations to that already.

Would also have been ok with this.

At the end of that episode, Scootaloo should have just stolen the wish by shouting "I wish for bigger wings!"

Sleep isn't real.

Idk. So far mist people seem accepting of those with any sort of disability. Especially physical ones. With Scootaloo, you have those who will be happy for her to be able to fly on her own one day— and those who will be happy if she finds a way to be happy without flying. I personally believe that since they grew up by magic in this episode, some things regarding them may have not properly matured with it (Example:Scootaloo's wings). That doesn't phase out the possibility that she wont be able to fly into her adulthood, but it doesn't shut out the possibility that she will either.

You say that while there is no hate towards:

kerfuffle

captain celaeno

or Jinx


And there is not only tolerance for them, but acceptance.
You just making your whole "tolerance" fixxed on one character.

That's actually profound.

I don't agree with the scootaloo is disabled theory but I respect those who do.

I am personality of the opinion that she can fly later like Bulk Biceps

That´s what I love the most, People with different interpretations of a piece of work comming together, but more and more I get the Feeling we no longer live in a world were it is okay to have These differences in viewpoints on art. "IT MUST BE STATED OUTRIGHT!!!"

There are two way with dealing with Problems succesfully live with them or overcome them, the one Thing you can not allow is the Problem to define you. Or in a methaphor; you can go over the mountain or around it, but you have to go to the otherside to get anywhere.

Just because she has tiny wings doesn't mean that she can't fly. Bulk Biceps has filly wings, even smaller; But that didn't stop him.

Maybe he WAS handicapped in the past, but was eventually able to overcome it.

We don't know his past.

In fact, the way I see it, he got as strong as he is due to the training he had to undergo in order to be able to fly.
