There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with forking. It's part and parcel to
our entire "movement" of Open Source. If you do not like a thing or
disagree with a thing, then change it to your liking and fork it,

It's part of the GPL. and it is a good thing to read. However, no one

distributing such things.
With regard to "male gaze" issues, there is already an answer to that,
the Burqa and the Chadri. Since this is 2015, maybe it would better suit
