Yes. "Balkanization" is an offensive term.
We are not hostile, we are not dangerous, we are not "crazy slavs".
Our kids are safe in schools, you can't legally buy a gun without proper training and paperwork, our people can get an abortion for an affordable price ( from €50 to €100, roughly) we have a very good health care system, we have no history of enslaving people because of the color of their skin.
Not saying that everything is better here because we don't have many things you do but stop perpetuating the narrative of us being miserable, of us not having proper roads, of us being stuck in Neolithic age. It's simply not true.

Konstrakta builds on this notion with her climactic chant in Latin, highlighting how society has completely forgotten to register one’s mental health as a marker for how healthy we are. She sings how the body is healthy, but the mind is sick, sad, frightened, and desperate; yet this all means nothing as long as we appear well on the outside.

guys you dont get it. when konstrakta (serbia) is singing, here she doesn't say "i am left on my own"
she says: "nemam knjižicu"
in translation:
i dont have health insurance
idk why they mistranslated it when the point of the entire song is about unattainable health, including healthcare system and its problems and privatization

Konstrakta’s act is referencing Marina Abramović’s 1975 performance Art Must Be Beautiful, Artist Must Be Beautiful in which Abramović continuously brushes her hair while repeating “Artist must be beautiful” as a comment on the misogynistic beauty expectations of the art world. Konstrakta has updated the words to “Artist must be healthy” and the ritualistic movement to hand washing and she's also singing about how beautiful hair and skin are indicators of good health and how imperfections are an indicator of health issues, thus making a statement about how the beauty industry has updated its vocabulary and morphed into the wellness industry to sell us the same old sexist beauty standards, but now under the guise of “health” and “self care”. By citing Meghan Markle as an example of health and beauty, mentioning she herself doesn’t have health insurance and ending the song with a statement about mental health, Serbia’s performance contextualises health as not an individual issue, but a complex question of wealth, privilege and politics.

yall know what id go crazy for?
accurate slavic representation. or at least more of it.
and im not talking about the 'russian/serbian guy is the main villain' trope, im talking real representation that there was actual effort put in. i wanna see albanian dances, i wanna see polish and czech food, i wanna see the nature, heck i even wanna see slovenians and their weird obsession over mountains. i wanna hear the music, i wanna see real struggles talked about.
i want to hear the accents and the beautiful languages talked in. i want to see balkan noses and all of the slavic features shown.
it's not too much to ask for is it?
