Save our beloved Depry by BewareXsteph Save our beloved Depry by BewareXsteph
Just to show my great plead to keep Derpy the way she is, cute, loveable, clumsy and AMAZING OwO :(


I just signed the following petition addressed to: Hasbro.

Do not change Derpy's name.

'Derp' is not a slur against mentally disabled people. Derp is a word expressing messing something up, regardless of mental ability. There is absolutely nothing offensive about it, especially when Derpy was created by an error, or a 'derp.' Her character evolved entirely around that, making her a very ditzy pony, but NOT disabled.

I am not offended by Derpy, and believe the name absolutely must stay. The voice was great for her as well, and should also stay. Keep the name!

Offending so many people? let me tell you this real fact, 12 emails was to hasbro asking for the removal of Derpy, the reason she got banned cos one of the developers found out derpy is another word for retard.

I'm still slightly annoyed by the fact that almost everyone who defends her, say that she is not mentally challenged.
It makes me feel like being mentally challenged is a bad thing, I'M mentally challenged and I don't see it as a bad thing.
I love Derpy, and if she was mentally challenged, i think she could become a sort of role model for kids who also have mental disabilities, showing them that it's not something to be ashamed of, and that they shouldn't just avoid 'normal' people, and that they can do something just as good as anypony else, if not better.

but hey, that's just like, my opinion man.

Yeo never said she wasn't mentally challenged in my opinion she gets on like it but Lauren Faust said that she's just clumsy in an interview xD I get we're your coming from completely and I agree :3 not many characters on T.V now adays that would be that kind of role model for kids :/ sad really
I love this comment!

Well I can kind of see it from the parents and the offended side, but I also see if from yours. They see this poor pony and her name and because of society the way it is, to call some one a Derp, or Derpy will bring up a thought or picture of a mentally ill person. This is also why (source is Urban dictionary) "A word that usually takes the place of "retarded.""
BUT on your side, I can see how children would probably not think of her as a disabled pony, just an extremely clumsy one. If anything it could help children and other people change the way they think about the name.
BewareXsteph Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
It generally wasn't parents that started the whole against the name thing and as far as I know no one is offended by it. It was started by some trollers when they seen episode 14 of the show and just decided to pick fault with the voice actor. The children generally DON'T see a disabled pony. My little cousin says she's like her because of her clumsiness :P I just think its unfair the fan-base rallied for her name to be derpy and now after a while they turn on it :/ not fair on Hasbro to make them look like their offending the mentally ill
J4D3W0LF Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, well I saw like three other deviations against the name change and so I figured I'd put in my opinion. Well like I said, I can see it from both sides, but personally I think they should just stick with the name. Other shows have a LOT more offensive material that nobody else gives a crap about.
