Mirrors

Popular culture mirrors international relations, as a whole.

”Damsel in distress” and women as ”visions of beauty” get glorified, as a way to promote ‘benevolent’ sexism or sexism disguised under pretentious ‘good intentions’, and yet men’s stories are still prioritized over women’s stories every time. Women are still silenced, even when we’re the participants of both geek culture and international relations.
