WARNING this rant contains swearing!
Oh boy...it's about time we talked this...horrid character. No, horrid is an understatement. I mean an atrocious character. Were's talking about Flash F***ing Sentry!
Flash Sentry is a stereotypical "nice guy". He plays guitar, drives a Camaro, and is in প্রণয় with Twilight Sparkle, only after a few conversations. This bothers me for many reasons...
#1: He's shown as perfect. He has rock-hard abs, perfect hair, and a charming smile. He is also morally right and every girl fawns over him.
#2: He has no flaws whatsoever.
#3: He's made only for Twilight Sparkle.
Starting with Point #1, he's too perfect. He has no flaws, mentally অথবা psychically. All he does is flaunt how awesome he is. And no, being a bit clumsy is not a flaw. We, as humans, cannot relate to this character at all unless আপনি have a camaro, rock hard abs, and f***ing pure-white teeth, and rock-god status.
On to #2, he has no flaws. He's always right, and is never wrong. All he has to do is flip his hair a bit, and every girl fawns over him. Let's face it, no one is actually like that! No person has no flaws! Everyone has flaws that we can overcome and become stronger people because of them! But when your god d**n kids প্রদর্শনী is aimed at girls, আপনি have to have the perfect male! And for all the young girls who want a guy like Flash f***ing Sentry and guys who want a perfect girl, then আপনি need to wake up. Real men and women aren't all perfect. We all have our own flaws, whether অথবা not they are physical অথবা mental, it doesn't matter. I can't stress this enough, REAL PEOPLE HAVE FLAWS! BUT FLASH F***ING SENTRY IS SOME GOODY-TWO SHOES ATROCITY THAT HASBRO MADE TO LET LITTLE GIRLS HAVE A DUMB, IRRATIONAL, TOXIC, AND EVEN SEXIST ফ্যান্টাসি WHERE THEY HAVE A FLAWLESS MAN RIDE OFF INTO THE F***ING SUNSET IN THEIR F***ING CAMARO!
For my third point, Flash Sentry was basically made দ্বারা Hasbro to be in the movie just for Twilight Sparkle to have a romantic interest. If Twilight Sparkle could read this, why are আপনি picking a man with no flaws? He has nothing to him, other than good looks. He isn't nerdy nor a bookworm, and all he does is play sports, play music, and drive a Camaro. Just, why?
Alright, now I'm gonna get a lot of hate mail, so I'll adress the other points:
"Flash Sentry is, like, hot" - So? He has nothing else to him!
"Flash Sentry is really nice!" - That makes it even worse. He's a nice and hot guy. There's still no flaws to his character.
"Flash Sentry is what I want my boyfriend to be!" - Well good luck with that, because there is no male out there without flaws.
"It's better than shipping Twilight Sparkle with an OC" - To that I say...maybe. If your OC is a mary sue, then it makes no difference. However, if হৃদয় and soul is in the OC, then you've done আরো than a huge team of people at Hasbro.
Now, I shall leave আপনি on one last note. Is it worth it to teach our children that we should expect to তারিখ a mary sue অথবা gary stu? Should we teach them that flaws are part of any person? Should we teach them that Flash Sentry is a bad example, as he has no flaws and that shows us a horrid, unrealistic being who doesn't exist in any male?
