"I love new and subversive twists on old favorites"

The Voracious Vegan, my new favorite blog, has this to say:
I love new and subversive twists on old favorites, especially when it is Fairy Tales that are getting the shake up. Fairy Tales are just one of the many ways that society’s patriarchal mores are instilled in us at a very young age. Ever notice that the stronger and more powerful a woman, the more evil she is presented as being? And the meek, young, frail women always seem to need a heroic rescue from a big strapping man, don’t they? Doesn’t it get so dull? Well, the amazing writer over at Tales from the Velvet Chamber has re-imagined an old favorite magnificently. You must read each part of her retelling of Snow White, it is gorgeous.
Thank you so much!
