#I THOUGHT THIS WAS GOING TO BE INSPIRATIONAL
Cyborgs were too smart, people had complained. They were cheating the average man out of his wages.
Cyborgs were too skilled. They were taking jobs away from hardworking, average citizens.
Cyborgs were too strong. They shouldn’t be allowed to compete in sporting events with regular people. It gave them an unfair advantage.
And then one small group of cyborgs had gone on a spree of violence and theft and destruction, demonstrating just how dangerous they could be."
Cress, Chapter 34
In the Lunar Chronicles, cyborgs have always stood as a symbol for prejudice and discrimination. It’s no accident that Linh Cinder is a woman of color, and the fact that she is adds extra resonance to her struggle—it draws a parallel between fictional discrimination and the sexism and racism that run rampant in our own world.
Cinder and Scarlet were subtle about the parallels, letting readers connect the dots for themselves. But Cress takes them a step farther. It uses the fictional construct of cyborg discrimination to make a sharp critique of our own prejudices.
Because isn’t this exactly how we talk about the Other? They’re thieves and cheats, benefiting off the undeserved benevolence of the system. They’re taking away our jobs, our glory, our opportunities, things that we had first, that we therefore deserve. Then those little bits of resentment build to a mountain of anger and spite, and as soon as one person steps a toe out of line, we seize the opportunity to condemn the entire group.
That is one of the best things about Cress: it turns subtext into real text and takes a much more obvious social stand. This series is going in a fantastic direction, and I can’t wait to see what Winter brings.(via inkyopinions)
I don’t know. I don’t actually remember anything from before the surgery.”
His eyebrows rose, his blue eyes sucking in all the light of the room. “The cybernetic operation?”
"No, the sex change."
The doctor’s smile faltered.

“You know, when I was a kid, I was tricked into thinking that princesses wore tiaras and hosted tea parties. Now that I’ve met a real princess, I must say, I’m kind of disappointed.”
“Even in the Future, the story begins with Once Upon a Time.” ― Marissa Meyer, Cinder
