That said, nuance is usually a lot less fun than railing against boogeymen. But to actually accomplish anything, it would be nice to tone down the vitriol. I tend not to agree much with Republicans, but I don't think they're fascists who want a return to segregation and child labor. Similarly, no, Democrats aren't just itching for the chance to execute the rich and send everyone to a Maoist re-education camp.
Hell, I'd be satisfied with people getting educated just once the first time around.
As a fable, I don't even think The Cutie Map had a partisan political message. It felt like a far simpler message: Your friends don't have to be just like you in order to be your friends. You can and should like different things. And you you can even have loud arguments as long as you still respect each other.
Granny Smith probably still uses one, not trusting these newfangled warshing machines with their spin cycles. Blamed things could fly to pieces and hurt somepony!
