One of my least favorite trends, YA or otherwise, is reimagining popular myths/fairytales from a "feminist" perspective.
Just let me have Ariel acting like a realistic twit teenager making bad choices to spite daddy instead of your shallow, one-note, GURL POWER! icon. What is it with feminists trying to pretend that girls aren't capable of being stupid or making bad choices (or blaming said stupidity or bad choices on the patriarchy)?
