"Society often blurs the lines between drag queens and trans women. This is highly problematic, because many people believe that, like drag queens, trans women go home, take off their wigs and chest plates, and walk around as men. Trans womanhood is not a performance or costume."

Bichawa Mughal Dagger

  • Dated: circa 1600
  • Culture: Indian, Mughal
  • Medium: steel, gold, diamonds, rubies, emeralds

Although the provenance of this dagger is unknown, the dazzling quality alone tells it was made for a Mughal prince. The hilt is made of solid gold and is set with tiny diamonds, rubies and emeralds in a typical style for the Mughal court workshops during the first part of the 1600s.

The steel blade is decorated in a watered pattern and the lower guard has been made into the form of a tiger’s head. Unfortunately the original scabbard has not survived, but would have probably matched the dagger for its decadence.

smashsurvey:

Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception). 

Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularly,how do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them? 

Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format.
