Please, tell me why you've removed me. I miss you. Please, what have I done wrong on Steam? Why won't you accept me back? I hate it when friends disappear, without saying why. Please!

Velanacious, stop denying that you are wrong about the baby's name being acceptable.

When kids at Pinkamena's schools find out what her name is from, they will tell everyone. She will be ridiculed and people will say her mother never loved her and named her after a stupid pink pony because she never loved her. That is where reality kicks in with names. Unless at least 100,000 kids are named that, she will be made fun of it forever. It will be what people remember her for. It will make her resent her mother, schoolmates, and herself. She'll be known as "the girl named after a cartoon pony" in school.

Naming a child is a serious thing, yet you defend it like Pinkamena was only her middle name, or this were a pet we were talking about. This is a living human being whose name will affect her for the rest of her life. You say you hate your name, yet you never said what it was.

A normal name has roots into a large culture, society, language, or has aspects from a language. Pinkamena is a made-up name made by a toy company with no real roots into any form of culture. Bronies do not count as a culture, for they have only existed for only about 2 years and it's merely a fanbase for a TV show. In a few years, the fandom may disintegrate completely, and looking back on it, it will have been absolutely ridiculous. Foreign names also have roots. Just because someone different from the names of people in a different part of the world doesn't make it an abnormal name, such as Mikhail, Olga, Idowu, or Keiji.

Come up with a good counter-argument, and I don't mean those biased stuck-up and evading responses like in the journal's comments. Avoid using insults or extremely specific examples to back-up your claims, as many of them do not function under normal human logic and usually have a one-of-a-kind factor that make it seem positive.

So, go ahead and try to prove your point.

I'm sick right now and not in the mood for arguing, but I'll see what I can do.

"When kids at Pinkamena's schools find out what her name is from, they will tell everyone."

Excuse me but...explain to me how they would find out. I find it extremely hard to believe kids in that generation will know that name spawned off of a cartoon show that existed when they were first born.

"Naming a child is a serious thing, yet you defend it like Pinkamena was only her middle name, or this were a pet we were talking about. This is a living human being whose name will affect her for the rest of her life. You say you hate your name, yet you never said what it was."

Ok first of all, you are FAR too worried about this child from what I can make out. I can understand people being concerned, but really? You act like the name is even worse than naming your kid after Hitler or something.

Look at the rights kids get for a second. They don't got shit. They are practically property of the parents until they are old enough to do what they want. I WISH your reality was true, but right now it isn't. Kids are treated like pets according to the law. Did you even realize that she can get her name changed herself if she really wants to? Not to mention, I believe the parents can fix or change the name. BTW, my name forms the initials "BJ" which I got teased for many times. I tried to blame my parents for this but they shrugged off the blame. According to you, this would also be unacceptable.

"A normal name has roots into a large culture, society, language, or has aspects from a language."

Why must her name be normal? Why can names NOT be made-up? Because they will be bullied right? You act like naming is serious but doesn't that translate to making it actually unique?! Being named after a fictional character compared to an authority figure does not change the equation. Let's say I name my kid Barack Obama. He will almost definitely get teased in school for it (most likely by Republican kids XD). Suddenly now that name can't be used because of it's affiliation to someone that some people may dislike.

The problem with this debate is I'm trying to give you a stable name process that I find has the LEAST bias, yet you're trying to give me this "What if" system that is full of "if's, ands, or buts". Society is full of this kind of shit. Name A is ok over here, but Name B isn't?

Why are we conforming to this horse shit system that is full of restrictions and doesn't even honestly work correctly? If I named my kid after Abraham Lincoln, he would also get teased. We might as well make a rule that says you cannot name your kids after other people!

But that would be a waste of time and it just won't work.

"and looking back on it, it will have been absolutely ridiculous."

Is it really that ridiculous for you to accept guys can break shoved-in society standards? I really think you have this illusion in your head that society is perfect and whatever the majority says is the right answer. Sorry, this doesn't work for me because I actually think for myself and society conjures legions upon legions of brainwashed idiots everywhere.

I learned to never trust people to be right as I grew older mainly because of this fact.

"those biased stuck-up and evading responses like in the journal's comments."

To be biased, I'd have to have an actual reason to be biased. I am not. I assume you are the biased one unless you show me you're right.

"normal human logic"

Oh, you mean like the logic that propelled us to believe that we could burn witches to dispel the evil demons from our town? Yeah...I don't exactly trust "normal human logic" mainly because it DOES NOT exist.

Information in this day and age is already easy to obtain. If a person searches her name, they will immediately find the source of it. You don't even need to look a day in the future to do that.

As for people who judge others based off of names their parents gave them, fuck those people. We can't change society's nature of being judgmental, stupid, ignorant, offensive, and uneducated.

That is partially why children shouldn't be named something strange. The other reason is because you directly associate the child with something that it may or may not like.

As to your initials being BJ, that really isn't too bad. My father worked with a man named Richard Head. Dick is short for Richard, and when my dad accidentally called him dick once, he nearly fucking snapped.
