He could have just said he could never get into Starlight Glimmer instead of drawing that. But I’m sure if I did the same thing but showcasing all of Discord’s post Season 3 actions, my drawing would get accused of being a strawman image. But if you really want to see the definition of Starlight strawmanning, look no further than what Terry/Tyrranux has made that includes Starlight. For an added bonus, read the comments to those pics as well.
EXACTLY! If my comments get banned because they included anything negative about Discord, I’m gonna call them out.

Woah, a very strawman image. Hypnotizing Twilight was literally through her consent, switching Celestia and Luna’s cutie mark was an accident that eventually leads to a good result, and infecting other ponies with rage was also an accident that Starlight didn’t actually want happened. And Discord was literally insulting her, calling her power-hungry and incompetent, and attacking innocent students prior. You’re telling me justifiably defending yourself and stopping someone from literally killing kids is abusing powers, while making a giant monster chase young students to exhaustion and near death and forcing them to continue running isn’t?
It’s just so sad people actively ignore Discord’s actions because of his status and his nature, and ignore Starlight efforts and development because of bias. Discord is like a spoiled child who gets rewarded even though he does something wrong and Starlight is like a flawed young adult trying her best to improve herself but still gets blamed for trying. If your comment is banned, it just proves our point that this fandom is biased toward Discord, and poor Starlight Glimmer is forever thrown under the bus. At the end of the days Discord will always get pampered. I just wish Starlight Glimmer received the same treatment.

Well I do. I feel like its completely wrong that he disregards Starlight but acknowledges Sunburst. Why? Because he wants more fuckboys to play with, what else? And the only reason Trixie is around is because she’s a fucking fandom mascot.
Ring Team made this: >>2761697
That’s why I like Starlight way more! People only defend Discord because he’s a fandom mascot and has ties to Star Trek and I hate Star Trek.
Yeah, if he SERIOUSLY cared about Fluttershy, he wouldn’t do all of this and learn from it. And I don’t buy the whole “he’s meant to be unreliable because he is supposed to be a spirit of chaos or else he will disappear forever”. If that’s the case then sucks to be him. Maybe if the show staff actually cared about the show as much as the fans did, then maybe they would have come up with a better solution. And if people tell me that Chrysalis is worse, I DON’T FUCKING CARE.
BTW, I happen to be writing all of this in a very downer mood right now so I hope this won’t get me banned.

I actually don’t mind Badumsquish’s bias toward Starlight because he doesn’t draw Discord all that much either and seems to believe he should get the same consequence as Starlight, though he does edge over Discord a bit. And I don’t know who Ring Team is. All I care about is if you are so bias toward Discord, Starlight should get the same treatment as well. No double standards. They’re basically the same, both are forgiven a bit too easily and have made mistakes after their reformation. The only difference is Starlight actually tries to improve and be better while Discord always acts smug and never seems to learn his lessons. Honestly the fact that you are told to knock it off just because you have a different opinion and don’t like Discord already proves that bias exist. People are always so ready to defend Discord but Starlight is always left in the dust, even thought Starlight always tries her best. Starlight Glimmer deserves better.
Because Discord’s true priority is messing with people, never Fluttershy. He’d rather fake being hurt just to troll Twilight and scare Fluttershy. He’d rather send Fluttershy to danger because he wanted to screw over Starlight because he was jealous he wasn’t invited to the school opening and wasn’t picked to take care of the school. Boohoo. And he’d rather gather 3 villains together without careful planning to doom Equestria because his “heart was in the right place.” Discord’s real bias is being chaotic and nothing else. Why else would he betray Fluttershy to Tirek? I’m not saying he doesn’t care about Fluttershy, I’m saying Fluttershy isn’t important enough to him.

After Twilight’s Kingdom, I was given the impression that Discord was not going to be a toxic friend anymore. The whole ending looked like he was turning over a new leaf! Possibly in his own Discord-y way as you said but still! But it turns out I was just asking for too much.
Other than the episodes that include Discord hanging out with Big Mac and Spike (somewhat), Discord just kept getting worse and worse with each episode he was in. Most of the fandom sees those moments as “Oh that lovable scamp.” But whenever Starlight messes up or does even the slightest thing to add support its “GET OFF THE FUCKING STAGE POOCHIE!” or whatever people like Badumsquish and Ring Team see her as. God, I really want to call them out sometime but I’m a goddamn scardey-cat when it comes to tell people off because I don’t want to get suspended/banned. It would also want to make me call out the mod who is telling me to knock it off as being part of the opposition’s side. BTW, if Discord was so biased towards Fluttershy, why did he send her with the Mane Six on that fake adventure in the episode to begin with? I was on Starlight’s side the whole time for that episode and I will still say that she was in the right.
Indeed. But its clear that this is all a result of the new guidelines the writing staff was given that contain minimal requirements to be able to write for FiM.

He was actually almost like that after reformation, pushing Twilight to be brave and go back to her friends in his own Discord-y way. It was when he bought Tirek’s lies and got absolutely wrecked did he become so bad. From there forward he only got worse. Most of the time he either makes others suffer because of his own jealousy or other petty reasons or thinks of others as inferior (calling Spike and Big Mac sidekicks and treating them like jokes). And just when he finally started to be better, like breaking Sugar Belle’s wagon to help Big Mac and such. They had to pull the Discord pretending to be Grogar thing. They just had to make Discord do bad things because they didn’t know what else to do with him. All this wouldn’t have been so bad if it wasn’t so double standards. Everyone is always so quick to defend Discord but where is the same support for Starlight Glimmer? She tries so much to grow and improve while Discord literally summoned a bugbear to chase the students and bullied them to keep running until near death. Then for some arbitrary reason Starlight was the one who apologized to Discord instead of the other way around. It’s like Discord is being enabled and that’s exactly why he continues to make bad decisions.
I still believe Fluttershy and Discord are just friends in the end. It would be too dangerous for them to be together. If Discord would manipulate Fluttershy with a fake injury from King Sombra, who knows what else he would do to her?

THANK YOU! Its amazing how frustrating it is that the fandom is always cool with what Discord does but when Starlight Glimmer causes unintentional trouble, she doesn’t get the same luxury as Discord! It felt like the writers really didn’t know what to do with Discord after Season 4. They wanted to keep him because he’s a fandom mascot obviously but would they really have lost that much if they written him like the Genie from Disney’s Aladdin?
If the writers wanted to really make Fluttercord happen, then they did a poor job if you ask me.

Yeah, Discord definitely “unintentionally” betrayed Fluttershy to Tirek, especially since he emphasized that taking down Tirek is especially for Fluttershy. He also “unintentionally” tried to throw Tree Hugger into another dimension because he is a jealous child. Then he “unintentionally” pretended to be hurt by King Sombra, even though he said so himself he did it on purpose for fun and giggles. Finally he definitely “unintentionally” left 3 villains unsupervised allowing them to roam free, breaking Fluttershy’s heart once again without consideration. And don’t give me the “He had good intention” excuse. He did a dumb thing with no consequences. The fact that they still let him have his power and even allowed him to tell the princesses what to do makes me fear he will do something like those to Flutershy in a far future. That’s literally an abusive boyfriend. If only we had more episode like “Discordant Harmony” where Discord actually cares about and considers Fluttershy’s feelings then he would have actually done more good things for her. But sadly most Discord episodes are about him being jealous of others and messing up people’s day or even worse harming others. Again seriously, why did Starlight Glimmer have to apologize to him when he was the one attacking students with a bugbear? Why all this defense for Discord but nothing for Starlight? She actually cares for Fluttershy more than Discord. Maybe I wouldn’t have this many problems with Discord if Starlight is treated just as fairly. That’s my full reason why I don’t like Fluttercord, and if people are free to ship them, I’m free to hate that ship with my own reasons and opinions too.

Do you think Discord intentionally hurt Fluttershy in other episodes besides The Return of Harmony? Also, Discord has done some good things for Fluttershy, right? People are free to ship them whether you like it or not.

Just because Fluttershy is my favorite doesn’t mean I like Discord. In fact, that’s precisely why I dislike Discord so much. The amount of times Discord hurt, tricked, and made Fluttershy worry is so big I always wonder why people ship them.

obnoxiously continues to preach about how much I don’t like Discord in the comments wherever I go as if people care
Also, I like how Lotus is a Twilight fan. :P

Oh no, a warfare in the comments and the community for a comic! Hold on… This is not something new, why we are worried about it? Sit down and come to eat popcorn, we have extra space.
