brilliant comments on contemporary culture
I am a woman, and also a feminist, who loves pop culture of various sorts, trying to deal with all the difficulties that combination involves. I love reading historical novels, but doubt that everyone’s innermost desire were to marry the opposite sex. I love films, but am tired of Hollywood narratives. I love video games, but am tired of sexist stereotypes in them. I love Japanese animé and manga, but do not like how women are constantly disparaged. I love learning languages, but don’t like how misogynistic and hetero sexist they often are. You can either accept it, or you can fight back. You may not be able to overthrow the whole system, but hopefully you’ll stop hating yourself.
