Quotation of the Day for March 24, 2015

"But too often, fantasy worlds are created like Ikea furniture, popping up whole with minimal assembly from big pre-existing parts that creak and come apart after heavy use. That's why so many many fictional worlds seem to produce carbon copies of real world Western gender hierarchies, even if it becomes painfully dissonant with other details of the setting."

- Katherine Cross, from the article Fantasy worlds that break history's back.
