Apparently (and I, being lame, missed the memo on this one) Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret has been updated -- the sanitary belt has been traded for pads.
Personally, this is the only case I can think of where I'm pro-change. Normally, I'd be horrified. I hate the changes that they made to Mary Poppins, even though it was way before my time. (Actually, the 'Bad Tuesday' chapter is still totally un-PC, regardless of the stupid changes. The changes kind of even made it worse.)
But in regards to Margaret, all I can think of are the girls that get yanked out of sex ed classes for religious reasons or homeschooled girls who don't get the essential info they need or the girls that get the WRONG information -- the girls that have Judy Blume as their only real source of information. (And they're still out there. In droves.) And yes, granted, there is Naylor's Alice series and Louise Fitzhugh touches on it in The Long Secret and there's lots of nonfiction, but nobody carries quite the same weight as Judy Blume.
So what do you think? Change good or change bad?
