Lyle Shelton Is Losing His Shit Because ‘My Little Pony’ Now Features Lesbian Horses
To reiterate: eat shit Lyle.
Lyle Shelton has been keeping a close eye on My Little Pony of late, and he’s not happy with what he’s seeing. Yesterday, he took to Twitter to call upon conservatives to rise up and push back against the show’s recent introduction of lesbian cartoon horses, which he clearly fears.
“We said indoctrinating your children & your grandchildren would be a consequence of [same-sex] ‘marriage’,” the famously heterosexual manbaby wrote on Twitter.
“It’s a brave new world folks & we need to push back while we still can. Sitting outside politics is no longer an option for conservatives.” He then linked to an article about the gay cartoon horses in question, who are introduced to the show as the lesbian aunts of a young pony named Scootaloo.

Somehow, Shelton’s call to action has failed to inspire the masses. Instead, he’s getting absolutely roasted. Not for watching My Little Pony, of course — his right to identify as a Brony must be preserved — but for continuing to act as if the very concept of gays, let alone gay cartoon horses, is a threat.

I know! Next they’ll have a pony that wasn’t born here.

Lyle, I checked with the writers of My Little Pony and they confirmed that they did indeed write this episode as a result of Australia introducing marriage equality and they are really happy you are upset about it.

Now we just need a My Little Pony episode where the Christian Fundmentlist Pony runs around manically, foaming at the mouth and telling all the rainbow ponies they’re all going to horsey hell, but all the rainbow ponies just laugh at him, so he skulls off, never to return.

The people have mobilised very quickly to tell Shelton to eat shit, which is unsurprising given that they’ve had so much practice. The man just keeps tweeting baffling and terrible things, and he’s only going to have more time to tweet after his failed Senate run.

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can; and the strength not to engage with Lyle Shelton on Twitter as it makes me want to shoot myself in the face. 😌
