Issue 81 of the comic had her hear the story of an earth pony who invented a set of artificial wings and got himself into the Wonderbolts. The comic ended with Rumble using a replica to fly in an air parade despite a sprained wing, though there was never the briefest acknowledgement that Scootaloo herself might benefit from that technology. Likely that was due to the comic still being bound to the show’s status quo; the way she was involved in the story made it feel like the writers were practically screaming “We would LOVE to have Scootaloo fly with that thing, but our hands are tied!”.

It’s not just the fact that she never flew, but that after “Flight to the Finish” (which intentionally left it open as to whether she’d eventually fly) we had multiple scenes of her wishing she could fly and never the briefest mention of her getting any help there (you would think Rainbow Dash would have been taking care of that, but there was never any indication of her actually doing so).
 
Plus there were numerous examples of technology (hang glider, prosthetic wing, and more) that could have helped her fly if there turned out to be no hope of her doing so naturally, but never the briefest discussion of her actually using any of them.
 
The whole shebang made her situation feel even more tragic than if she’d been properly diagnosed in-universe and gotten a hang glider or something.

“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!”

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
