This is likely a contentious issue. Personally, when it comes to medieval fantasy I prefer the setting to be rife with sexism, racism and all the other kinds of bigotry that plagued antiquity. Multicultural societies should be have deep racial and cultural tensions, mixed racial and mixed species couples should be an anomally often met with scorn, women in traditionally "masculine" roles should be a rarity and discriminated against and so on and so forth. The A Song of Ice and Fire setting would be an excellent example of this. So the question I ask is would you prefer a setting rife with all the bigotry of medieval society or would you prefer a setting with more modern values?
This is something I've been seeing more nad more in the world recently. In the efforts to enforce "proper" behavior and morals, the politcal correctness crusader become worse than the monsters they are fighting for. In todays news, Obama was branded as sexist becaue he complemented one female judge, and besides mentioning her being hard-working and all, also mentioned he was good-looking. And s*** hit the fan immediately. Apparenlty we live in a word where you can't even compliment someone without a bunch of MORONS overreacting. I weep for humanity.
