• Scootaloo's Lesbian Aunt Confirmed By Mike Vogel


    Since the earlier post was updated when it was way below page 2, we are going to go ahead and continue it here. If you missed it the other day, the "Ponyville Mysteries: Riddle of the Rusty Horseshoe" book delved into the home life of Scootaloo. Her parents are off doing something unexplored most of the time, so she essentially lives with her Aunt Holiday and Aunt Lofty.

    After introductions, Holiday kisses Lofty on the head and calls her dear. The book only explained the familial relationship with the former, saying she's Scootaloo's dad's sister. This brought on a swarm of questions wondering if we had actually seen our first, canon lesbian couple. After a bit of vague toying with people on Twitter, Mike Vogel went ahead and fully confirmed it.

    We don't know if this canon will travel into the show, but it very well could. Considering Scootaloo is the last of the mane 6+CMC without any in-show family scenes, it's only a matter of time before we get something. They could keep it vague, or they could go the Disney and Cartoon Network route by fully accepting it. It seems to have gone over well for them, and Hasbro has shown many times they they don't like to be left behind on big social changes.

    Thanks to Kelsi, Ryan, everyone that sent it in!
