uspol, anti-labor holidays Show more
national holidays are a really weird anti-labor front. we don’t celebrate may day, our labor day has virtually nothing to do with labor, and hallmark expanded its line of bosses day cards in 2007 because apparently people actually observe it?
When women make a broad generalization about men*, stop before you reply "but not all men".
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.

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.
