Whether or not all the mare/mare pairings are intentional, it does leave room for interesting interpretations. More important plot devices have been born of authors just rolling with an initially-unintended detail.
My main point is I'm 99.99999% certain any speculation is purely fan interpretation. The animator crew, I highly doubt, puts much thought into it.

Besides, with mares outnumbering stallions by about 4 to 1, what else are they gonna do? /hypocritical aside

They put a lot of thought into most aspects of this series, why not here?

OK, how about this - I prefer to take overall take Faust's stance on the matter and not think about most sex-based issues, in relation to the show. Dwelling over-much on pairings seems awkward to me.

I hope I'm not coming off homophobic or anything. I have no issue with a kids show giving gay couples an appearance of normality. I just really cling to the innocence of the show, and most shipping veers away from, well, innocent hand, er, hoof holding.

But... it was an entire episode dealing with romantic relationships. And I never mentioned a thing about sex. It just seemed that Ponyville has a whole heck of a lot of lesbian couples. And I only even noticed that because I checked to see if that really was Doctor Whooves and Derpy in that scene. It just so happens the same scene had Bon Bon and Lyra, plus about three other lesbian couples.

Also anyone one else creeped out by the face on the pony in the jelly, I don't know why it just creeps me out.
Yeah, they’re having fun with that over on Memebase.

I was hoping this would be the case the instant I saw the guy. "This guy has GOT to become a new meme, or I've lost all faith in the fanbase".

Query to Nick:  Are you on Ponychan as Nicknack?

Query to everypony else:  Anypony interested in laying out where they are, so we could possibly have pony meetups or plan to hit a con?

ditto with the mid-hudson valley here.  Saugerties, specifically.

I know you said nothing about sex. It's just labeling relationships and shipping, regardless of intent, well... it goes places. I've investigated all things pony, and I have seen things I'd rather not.

As far as the episode's theme, well yeah it was about relationships, but there was also a funeral being held, kids playing video games, etc ("This one's too young, this one's too old..."). It was basically a busy day outside, and yes couples were out in full force.

I'm just saying, have your fun with it, but don't overspeculate.

My location is in Wisconsin. Near the Mississippi. Somewhere. >_> PM if anypony wants specifics, but if EQDaily has taught me anything, I need to go to the Cities or Green Bay to find fellows.

Further proof that Hasbro needs to start making merch for us bronies, if this is what we do for their ratings.
