One thing I loved about FIM is that each pony was feminine in her own way and never less than. Being a girl is fun and amazing. <3 Random online chats are usually very toxic.

Agreed! There's no one way to be a girl, and it's great to see that in media, especially when it's aimed towards girls. A lot of the movies and shows I grew up with depicted the more stereotypical feminine characters as dumb or evil. As embarrassing as it is to admit, I think that partially contributed to my "not like the other girls" phase. Anyways, I really appreciated the Diamond Dogs episode of FiM for its message that femininity does not equal weakness.

I agree that females are often depicted as lacking in agency and two-dimensional in mainstream media storytelling. I think that has changed a lot recently but then I watch a lot of Netflix.
