In regards to the inconsistencies with RD and Rarity, a lot of it stems from the fact that there are so many different writers for the show, and each one is simply more in tune with some characters than others. Season 6 especially had a lot of new writers.
That’s true! Some of the writers are also just better than the others.
But, what I was saying with regards to Rainbow and Rarity wasn’t just about the fact that they’re written inconsistently. They all get that a lot, and honestly I’d say Pinkie gets it much more than anyone else.
What bothers me about Rarity and Rainbow is that their moments of having less depth portray them in a way that’s really stereotypical and that I think shows a lot about what the writers think about these kinds of women. Like there’s a big stereotype about charming, beautiful women that they’re deceptive and use their charm and beauty to manipulate men into giving them what they want. And likewise butch women are stereotyped as aggressive and rude and mean. And sometimes I feel like the show goes a little overboard with these stereotypes with how they write Rarity and Rainbow.
