Anyone saying Fairy-type is too girly...

...hasn't played enough Yu-Gi-Oh.

Just to make my point:

Can you blame them? Yu-Gi-Oh is sorta dead to the mainstream world atm.

MegaTen is a better example. Tons of interesting non-girly Fairy type demons in those games.

As someone who was anti-Fairy (well, anti-new type, not specifically Fairy) I always thought the "It's too girly" argument was kinda stupid.

You're from Narnia? As clearly you must be from a magical land of myth :P

I'm from So. Cal.

That's pretty close to being a land of myth.

Why anyone would be against adding something new that is clearly not a bad idea is beyond me.

Or perhaps they are just ignorant and only believe that fairies are the Disney version for girls.

Oh, and, to add to one Strain said:

Yeah, the Shin Megami Tensei series has a ton of interesting examples parallel to what you're saying. Here's some demons of the fairy race that don't exactly of stereotypical "Fairy" archetypes:

To me it's just needless. It's innovation for the sake of innovation. To this day I've still yet to hear of a single Pokemon or Attack idea for Fairy that couldn't easily be covered by an existing type. The only semi-logical reason I've heard to be in favor of it is type balance, and if the rumors so far are true, the Fairy type will not be bringing fair balance to the type chart. So why bother? Has nothing to do with whether I think it's a good or bad idea (and for the record I never thought it was a BAD idea, just an unnecessary one)

Anyway, moving on. To show off a few non-girly Fairies from the MegaTen series

Fomorian - http://images.wikia.com/megamitensei/images/1/13/Fomor.jpg

Bogle - http://images.wikia.com/megamitensei/images/0/07/Bogle.jpg

Troll - http://images.wikia.com/megamitensei/images/8/85/Troll2.jpg

Kelpie - http://images.wikia.com/megamitensei/images/3/37/Kelpie.jpg

Spriggan - http://images.wikia.com/megamitensei/images/1/1b/Spriggan.jpg

Leprechaun - http://images.wikia.com/megamitensei/images/5/5b/Leprechaun2.jpg

Penanggal - http://images.wikia.com/megamitensei/images/1/1e/Penanggal.jpg

Cu Chulain - http://images.wikia.com/megamitensei/images/1/1c/CuChulainn2.jpg

Just to show off a couple. Naturally I don't expect any Pokemon to look anything like this, and even if they did, most of them I could easily see being something other than Fairy type, but still. Fun designs.

Plus I'm a big Kaneko fan, and I like looking at his artwork.
