Something positive for everyone. I'm happy with this comic and I thought I might give the Orchard Blossom plot a little spin on things.
I also wanted to fight gender stereotypes. 

Wear what you want, do the little things to make you feel beautiful and WORK IT! <3

No question about it:  "Cousin Orchard Blossom" has DEFINITELY got to make at least one return-appearance on the show!  I for one would LOVE to see "her" get invited to the Grand Galloping Gala!  Can you imagine?  Needless to say, I think Princess Celestia would also be hugely supportive of "her", as is Rarity in this excellent cartoon.

I think Big Mac just categorically has trouble admitting to wanting anything more than to do farm work.

Yes, it is unfair that only they can wear skirts while one is trapped in tight and uncomfortable pants.

I remember when Bugs Bunny would dresses for a skit,but no one batted an eye,then there was Drew Carry's "brother" was a CD,and as far as I could tell no one minded,so why is it so hard to do it for other shows?

Big Mac wanted Rarity to repair his Orchard Blossom dress, which he had a hard time admitting that he enjoyed wearing. As a guy who likes wearing dresses, I approve of the message of this comic :)

Love the sentiment. I look forward to the day that messages like this one are just looked at with apathy, because we've gotten to a point where its just culturally ingrained. The same way messages such as "racism is bad" and "being a dick is a bad thing" are viewed.

Yes!  I love seeing trans/CD-positive art like this.  I wish I could wear dresses without fear whenever I wanted because there are tons of times I want to wear women's clothing instead of men's but can't due to social fears and stigmas.  It's so hard to get people to accept the idea of men in dresses especially among older folk who were raised that men who embraced feminine ideals were weak, sick, or evil.

Actually, you might be surprised so far as "older folk" are concerned.  I personally have known CDers in their 70s & 80s, who kinda said, "Geez, you younger folk have it so easy nowadays!  (Relatively speaking.)  Back in MY day when I was young, it was REALLY an uphill battle!"

I know some elderly crossdressers, so not everyone of the older generations lived by those rules.  It was definitely much harder for them to express themselves due to the social climate.
