Would there be less drama if the Fairy type was called Elf type instead?

The word used for the egg group (Yosei) in the JP versions is used for both beings like the ones in Lord of the Rings (human sized, pointy eared) and Tinkerbell types.

Not that I'm against calling the type fairy.

Instead of insecure homophobes whining, another group of minority will whine instead.

I think it would have the same amount of drama. I think "Magic" type would have worked better, but then some people will say it's too close to Psychic. People always find a way to hate on things.

How is it more restrictive than Fairy?

Elf is too restrictive.

The only alternative I can really think of that could hit close to the same general point might be Mystic or Magic or something.

The only name I really liked is Cosmic but it will never be. I don't hate Fairy but I woulda prefered Cosmic

I like how everyone assumes that despite no one EVER acting as such. -_-
