Capitol Couture is a fashion magazine from the Hunger Games’ image-obsessed dystopian Capitol. Their latest effort is a series of photos titled “One Panem,” showcasing a “hero” from of Panem’s twelve oppressed and often poverty-stricken districts.
With the next Hunger Games movie introducing a fully-fledged rebellion, this photoshoot is evidently meant to be propaganda, trying to get citizens to stay proud of their own district’s role in supporting the Capitol.
Tellingly, Katniss Everdeen’s district isn’t represented by a “hero” who shows pride in their work and patriotism, but a 6-year-old girl who “channels her hope and optimism toward Panem’s peaceful future.”

This quote is so rarely printed in its entirety. Fantastic.
Monsters are tragic beings. They are born too tall, too strong, too heavy. They are not evil by choice. That is their tragedy. They do not attack people because they want to, but because of their size and strength, mankind has no other choice but to defend himself. After several stories such as this, people end up having a kind of affection for the monsters. They end up caring about them.
Women should not be made to feel guilty for what men do or feel. By implying that boys are unable to control themselves around girls’ bodies, we are pandering to a culture that very often shifts blame from men to their female victims. This encourages impressionable young minds (particularly as we are talking about school dress codes) to think that women are in some absurd way responsible because of their ‘inappropriate’ or ‘suggestive’ clothing for sexual crimes, rather than making it clear that each individual is responsible for their own actions. It prioritises boys’ education over girls’ comfort and implies that the student whose education and wellbeing we are most concerned about protecting is the male.
