A Bit of a Pattern with Rarity

As if there needed to be more reasons to dislike “Simple Ways,” the inimitable Viga (whose gofundme is still running, by the way) pointed out a rather unfortunate pattern to me yesterday: Rarity has had three cases of having a crush on a pony, because she’s the “girly one” and romance “girly.” If we have to have romance in ponies (which, as I have made fairly clear, I’d very much prefer we didn’t, but that fleet of ships appears to have sailed), can’t we mix it up a bit and get one of the less “girly” ponies like Rainbow Dash or Applejack to fall for someone?
