Thoughts on the Derpy controversy

I have added the following paragraph to the description of my picture "Derpy Thunder."  I decided to also post it in a journal because frankly, this subject has given me a lot to think about personally and artistically, and I wanted to just make sure my thoughts on this were made clear:

I would never take down a piece of artwork as long as there is someone out there who appreciates it, but given the current controversy surrounding Derpy's appearance in The Last Roundup, I have to admit that I now feel like kind of an ass for making this picture.  Often with FiM, there are moments where I'm not sure how to feel at first, but end up growing on me later.  Derpy's scene with Rainbow Dash is one of those moments.  It surprised me at first to hear how the character sounded, but I would NEVER ask them to change her just because a few people were unfortunately and unintentionally offended.

I suspect that the only people who were offended were the creepy guys who could not handle that the show did not give them the angsty waifu they had created in their minds.  And this is why we can't have nice things.

That last sentence sums up everything.  Studio B goes above and beyond for their fans, to a degree never seen before, a few people bitch about it, Hasbro and WeLoveFine respond, "OMG!  REMOVE THE CHARACTER FROM EVERYTHING!"  Internet-wide head-desk follows.
