Except people debunked this by literally handing in the same cv, one with a man’s name, once with a woman’s and saw the difference in wage.

Here’s a thing I’ve had around in my head for a while!

Okay, so I’m pretty sure that by now everyone at least is aware of Steampunk, with it’s completely awesome Victorian sci-fi aesthetic. But what I want to see is Solarpunk – a plausible near-future sci-fi genre, which I like to imagine as based on updated Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian aesthetics, combined with a green and renewable energy movement to create a world in which children grow up being taught about building electronic tech as well as food gardening and other skills, and people have come back around to appreciating artisans and craftspeople, from stonemasons and smithies, to dress makers and jewelers, and everyone in between. A balance of sustainable energy-powered tech, environmental cities, and wicked cool aesthetics. 

A lot of people seem to share a vision of futuristic tech and architecture that looks a lot like an ipod – smooth and geometrical and white. Which imo is a little boring and sterile, which is why I picked out an Art Nouveau aesthetic for this.

With energy costs at a low, I like to imagine people being more inclined to focus their expendable income on the arts!

Aesthetically my vision of solarpunk is very similar to steampunk, but with electronic technology, and an Art Nouveau veneer.

So here are some buzz words~

Natural colors!
Art Nouveau!
Handcrafted wares!
Tailors and dressmakers!
Streetcars!
Airships!
Stained glass window solar panels!!!
Education in tech and food growing!
Less corporate capitalism, and more small businesses!
Solar rooftops and roadways!
Communal greenhouses on top of apartments!
Electric cars with old-fashioned looks!
No-cars-allowed walkways lined with independent shops!
Renewable energy-powered Art Nouveau-styled tech life!

Can you imagine how pretty it would be to have stained glass windows everywhere that are actually solar panels? The tech is already headed in that direction!  Or how about wide-brim hats, or parasols that are topped with discreet solar panel tech incorporated into the design, with ports you can stick your phone charger in to?

(((Character art by me; click the cityscape pieces to see artist names)))

my minecraft builds are all like this. Stylishly artificial with a natural edge. Sadly I think small businesses is not something that can work in the future.

Anonymous said: I love the irony of radfems saying it's the patriarchy's fault male abuse survivors struggle to get help, and then in the same breath being the exact people who mock the male survivors (remember that article on Jezebel?)... I mean... does that mean they are the patriarchy? That's what logic would tell us... I wonder how they would feel about this...

check-your-privilege-feminists:

The whole blaming the patriarchy on men’s problems thing doesn’t even make sense. If their idea of patriarchy was true — a system in society designed by men for the benefit of men that often excludes women — then why would a system that’s supposed to benefit men ignore them on such important issues like homelessness, domestic abuse, violence, poor education, crime etc.?

It’s for the benefit of the rich men but that’s the bit people often leave out. Stright white male is fine, it’s being rich that causes morality to go screwy.

People love watching and reading about dystopias and rebellions, but when it happens in real life suddenly those people are demonizing the resistance and championing the oppressors as the protectors of society. 

This post is good but i think you mean white people not just ‘people’

No the above post was accurate your addition, while also adequate, is racist.
