    What Do You Mean It's Not?

    I've grown up writing tests, drawig diagrams, even building models with Pluto firmly in the planets of the Solar System. Call me a rebel, call me old-fashioned, but no matter what those scientists say Pluto will always be a planet to me.

    If you know about the Roman

    and Greek gods, then you might know that each planet (except for Earth) is named after one of the gods. Mercury is Hermes, the god of travel, thievery and commerce. Neptune is Poseidon, the god of the sea. Venus is Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. Saturn is Cronus, the...

    I laughed when I saw this

    as an experience!! It is still there. And, if it isn't a planet, can it still have a moon? Can you have a moon without a planet? I am so pleased I have nothing more pressing to concern myself with x

    Always a Planet. Always

    I will never not call pluto a planet.  When I have children of my own I will teach them that pluto is a planet.  I mean come on!  It has a moon!  That makes it a planet.  But now that it is not officially a planet teachers can no longer tell their...

    Don't Worry, Plutie

    You will always be a planet to me, no matter what they say! I grew-up with you being the 9th planet and I love you just the way you are: even if you're apparently too "small". Those are just a bunch of meanies, those people who doubt and refuse to see you as a planet. You're...

    It Still Is to Me!

    I learned that Pluto is a planet all my life.  I just can't forget about that!  I am not going to abandon little Pluto.  There is no good reason why it can't be a planet.  Pluto is more than just a big rock in the sky.

    It is so strange when the most acclaimed and approved scientists worldwide first for centuries "believe" - with significant amount of research - in geocentric system, and later - in heliocentric such.... Then again similar people for centuries truly "believe"...

    It'S Not Fair.

    When my mom told me that Pluto was downgraded to a dwarf planet, I began to yell at her and throw a tantrum for the next three days. I find it unfair that Pluto can no longer be called a planet, and I still get tears eyed when it is brought up.

    Scientists that say Pluto is no longer a planet

    can suck it. I'm a Scorpio and Pluto is my planet. You're not taking that away from me. I guess next, Antarctica won't be a continent anymore. You're scientists, not gods. :p

    When I was born it was a planet

    so when I die it will be a planet too.I feel so bad about it, being pushed to the side and being forgotten, they say it's not right to do it to people, than why is it okay to do it to planets?

    I mean it has a frikin moon orbiting around it

    already, if that doesn't make it a planet, I don't know what will... And I did hear were other "dwarf planets" discovered beyond Pluto that also orbit the sun, but in my view, anything that orbits the sun should be classified as a planet!

    You can't just take away the title "planet" .

    I find I am over protective of Pluto on this subject. It's like saying a banana is no longer a fruit it's a seed or something.... Bullsh*t.

    The devoted lament of demotion.

    Alas, alas. Alas, poor Pluto. Once a mighty planet, Now just cosmic proscuitto. From dessert to after-dinner mint Thanks to astronomer's judo. Barycentric waltzes unpopular, Eris had more mass than you do; So your proud planetary status Is now simply pseudo.

    Dwarf Planet Is Still A Planet

    Pluto has been a planet sense 1930 and still is a planet, just cause you slap 'dwarf' in front of it doesn't make it stop being a planet. It is and always will be a planet and the second ruler of scorpio, I'll teach this to my children and to their children's children.
