Special Running of the Leaves by peasantb Special Running of the Leaves by peasantb
Applejack is starting to think RD actually DOES qualify for this event...

Just doodling around some silly ideas. No offense is meant, I just really liked the crazy barking pony from Read it and Weep.

I like this painting as you show the special Olympics to people. These do mean a lot to others and you show it nicly by showing the different types of handicapped ponies

Oh! You mean Screw Loose? Yes. That's her name.

I like the idea behind this. No offense in this, just ponies who can still race. Like Molly the Pony with her prosthesis leg. Yep! ([link]) Minus racing.

Wonderful work there.

Aww, poor #72 looks so defeated. Maybe because crutches on an equine make little sense. :D

The Paralympics kind of get ignored in the wake of the Olympics, so it's nice to see a shout-out to the Paralympians.

What did you use to paint this?

With the Olympics on I think this is a very clever idea to have a picture about Pony Paralympics. It's topical and and relevent and I admire you not being afraid to draw this.
I'm keen to know how much research you did on the Paralympics prior to this.
Also, I like the addtion of Derpy, given the general perception of her mental age.

Why is Derpy here? Wasn't the whole "Derpygate" fiasco trying to prove Derpy ISN'T mentally disabled?

Being wall-eyed would be just a problem in her visual senses.
Severe enough to be a disability, yes, but does not extend all the way to mental disorder or abnormal brain development.

Or at least that's my headcanon.

I'm sorry, but I have a problem with this. It's not your fault, but I thought that was the wrong way to approach it to begin with. Maybe she's disabled, maybe she's just clumsy, but all the derpygate deal was about was showing that she shouldn't change.

I don't think it's right to try to censor mentally disabled characters in television in general. These people really do exist, and there's nothing wrong with them, so I don't understand why it's even okay to pretend they aren't real, or that there's something obscene with their existence.

A lot of bronies reacted by saying she's not handicapped, and to me, that's both irrelevant and equally inappropriate as the arguments to censor her. Please, read this: [link] I'm not saying she should be handicapped as a character, but I think it's inappropriate to agree she shouldn't. And sorry for the wall of text reply, it's just a frustrating topic for me. ^_^'

I find this right on the edge of offensive, but that's mostly because of my autistic brother and my physical problems *shrug* either way, it's a beautiful picture, and I can see it from other points of views so that it isn't offensive. Faved!

I have a special place in my heart for the mentally handicapped. I actually prefer talking and hanging with autistic and retarded people more than "normies" because they aren't concerned with most of the social standing and frivolousness. And they see things through such a different lens... Though I would never wish it and can probably never understand their struggles, I'm both humbled by them, and envious of their unique outlook.

I have a lot of the same views you do, then, dear. I've always been the one to volunteer to help with special needs people, especially when no one else will. I'm happy you feel that way, and I wish there were more people in the world that understood.

You may not want to use the word "retarded" about mentally handicapped people. I can tell by your comment that you're not really ableist, but that word can (and in most cases, WILL) be interpreted offensively.

It's exactly what it means, with the rapid rise in text-only communication, I live by denotation rather than connotation.

#4 has an unfair advantage. We'll wait till she wins before we disqualify her.

LOL At entry letter R xD

Rainbow Crash is being pulled out the race? Well I still like her helmet. So long RC.

#2's Twilight's Half Pony half Carriage invention. We shall see if it can hold up against #4's super alloy springy hooves. It'll be a tight race. Hopefully Screwloose doesn't bite off a wheel.
