Under the heading "Good Question" we ask different characters a variety of questions about life - often on topics that are not usually raised in small talk. How do people who were left without work during the crisis live? What if you fell in love with a person “from the enemy camp”? How do asexual people build relationships - do they go against their own desires for the sake of a partner? Here we have collected the most interesting "good questions" and the answers to them.
Stories of couples from conflicting countries
During the pandemic, many relationships became long-distance relationships. Nevertheless, situations where relations are seriously affected by external circumstances did not appear yesterday - for example, due to closed borders and conflicts between countries.
Different people who left the monastery about their experiences
We talked with three people who spent a long time in the monastery environment, and then parted with her, about how it happened and why they made the decision to return to the world
People with disabilities on how it is for them to “inspire” others
The fact that not all people with disabilities like being seen as heroes of uplifting stories came as a complete surprise to many. We asked people with disabilities themselves how they perceive such situations.
Women on how childhood sports affected their relationship with the body
After going through sports school, someone really manages to temper character, while others have to deal with the consequences of psychological trauma. Four heroines told us about how playing sports as a child affected their health, perception of themselves and their bodies.
Gender fluid and genderqueer people about themselves and their identity
For some people, gender is not a monolithic construction, but a complex system of corresponding sensations and concrete actions. We spoke with gender-fluid and genderqueer people about their identity, binary system and relationship with the body.
Asexual and aromantic people about relationships
There are many myths and stereotypes around asexuality and aromanticism. For example, many people do not know that there is a gradation: people from the a * spectrum can find partners or, conversely, be happy alone, may be disgusted with sex or have it purely out of curiosity
Women about the traumatic statements of doctors
Sometimes patients have to deal with rudeness and even aggression on the part of the doctor, which can not only offend the patient, but also inflict long-term psychological trauma on him. We asked different women who faced unethical doctors to talk about it.
"Parents on gender-neutral parenting
Gender-neutral education is a rather broad concept: it includes both a radical refusal to ascribe any gender to children, and simply a rethinking of norms in family life. We spoke with parents who practice this approach.
Women on racism faced in Russia
In Russia, racism and xenophobia are more alive than all living things - which is worth at least the activities of Vladislav Pozdnyakov and the "Male State". We spoke with women about examples of racism and xenophobia they encountered in Russia
Models about their work and body perception
We talked about how the body is perceived in the context of art with three women who worked as models. They talked about what this experience was for them and what they think about situations when the image of a woman's body is considered "pornography"
