Lauren Faust

American animator and writer
We live in a society where saying that something is for girls is the equivalent to saying that something is stupid, or saying that something isn't worthwhile. I think that's awful and I think that kind of attitude needs to be changed.

Lauren Faust (born July 25, 1974) is an American animator, screenwriter, director, and producer, best known for developing Hasbro's animated television series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.

QuotesEdit

  • A lifetime career goal for me has always been wanting to lift up little girls. I feel like society has contempt for girls and little girl things. When athletes are performing badly their coaches call them ladies, or when somebody is being weak they say they're crying like a little girl, that's contempt. When somebody's trying to describe something as stupid or lame they say it's for little girls or only a little girl would like that, or when something is pink or full of rainbows and hearts people jump to the immediate conclusion that it's dumb, and if adult men are liking that sort of thing there's something wrong with them, because there's something contemptuous and unworthy about girl things and being a girl.

  • I feel like people can't tell the difference between the shows I worked on and the shows I didn't work on. That all that work really wasn't worth it. Sorry.
