Anyone else wish they could've thought up a better name than "Fairy Type"?

Nah, Fairy's fine as it is.

No matter what they named it, it'd be hated by some.

I don't mind Fairy but Sylph sounds a little better.


Too bad 3/4 of the Pokemon fanbase would have no idea what that meant.

Holy type


Religious connotations would never fly.


Yet something that's on a borderline to insulting a certain group of people will.....


Really? REALLY?!

Know what you're talking about before you bother to say anything. Fairy isn't even an insult for the most part to that "certain group of people." There's actually people who are more feminine, that the word is used to describe, not as an insult. Not to even mention CONTEXT.

On top of that, who the f*** cares. They can't take all our words, and make them theirs. It's bad enough religious people do that crap, why we should let a people who happen to be "gay" make us feel like we can use rainbows without representing them, or like we can't use the term Fairy for fear of insulting them? That's ridiculous, why do you exist? Ignorant pestilence. Seriously, I wish some people would just vanish.

Insecure Little Boy type.

Maybe that would have worked better.

Does the term "fairy" even have anything to do with "that certain group of people"?
