What I wish I could unlearn from Star Trek TNG / 1: Women are equal to men. In theory.

What I wish I could unlearn from Star Trek TNG / 1: Women are equal to men. In theory.

Since my blog’s creation last September, I have written about my (anthropological) perceptions of science-fiction on a few occasions.

In From Science-Fiction to Anthropology: there and back again, I described in detail the curiosity Star Trek and other sci-fi franchises have sparked in me for otherness and extreme alterity. This, I believe, is one of various elements that led me study anthropology, which in turn, brought me to be much more critical of the themes science-fiction explores.
