While I appreciate the points

While I appreciate the points brought up in the Snow White post, I just can't help but feel like that's being too politically correct. You want a different kind of fairy tale that's more inclusive? Make one up. Don't alter and/or change past ones to suit your needs. That's insulting to the original authors. You don't change someone else's work just because it's not "inclusive enough." Otherwise, you're doing it for the sake of being more inclusive, which kinda defeats the purpose of being more inclusive, doesn't it?

Fairy Tales

Uh huh. I'll just leave this here then:
<a href="http://borderhouseblog.com/?p=8496">Why “if you don’t like it, make your own” is not a valid argument</a>

and, seriously, "insulting to the original authors" of FAIRY TALES? You are literally thousands of years too late to be complaining about changing the original works.

<blockquote>you're doing it for the sake of being more inclusive, which kinda defeats the purpose of being more inclusive, doesn't it?</blockquote>

Well, no, being more inclusive for the sake of being more inclusive does NOT defeat the purpose of being more inclusive. What exactly do you think the purpose of being more inclusive is, then?
