Unwelcome Old Arsehole: "Men don't make passes at girls who wear glasses!"

When women make a broad generalization about men*, stop before you reply "but not all men".

We know.

There are two options:

1) Make the broad generalization. Some men will have to stop and self-examine to see if they actually perform the behavior being criticized. Self-examination is good.

2) Specify "some men". This gives men who DO perform the behavior the excuse to say "well they don't mean ME". Enabling failure to self-examine is bad.

h/t @gingerrroot and @c0debabe for the thought

Sunset yesterday in Norfolk, VA, on our way to the Puter Banks. Moire took this using my Pixel 2 XL from the passenger seat as we drove over a bridge.

You ever think about how astoundingly #solarpunk victrola 78rpm record players could be?

Wind up/clock work powered. No electric parts required to spin, to reproduce sound, or to amplify sound.

There are definitely elements of the devices that aren’t sustainable, and the weight of the needles was destructive to the discs being played.

But the potential is there for a modern, sustainable, solarpunk reimagining.

And, IMO, the time has come.
