I see how it is. Rihanna can wear a shiny, completely transparent dress in public and everyone loves it, but when I did it, I was “wasting saran wrap” and “ruining Easter, Daniel.”

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?

After Tiller

Watching the documentary After Tiller has made me quite emotional regarding anti-abortion protestors. I wholly believe in the right to protest however to emotionally manipulate women who are already in an extremely difficult situation is, in my opinion, evil. Many of these women are having to make the incredibly difficult situation to terminate pregnancies (many of them planned) due to severe mental and physical foetal health problems.

Moreover, even if there is not severe health problems, the idea that a group/government has the right to remove the bodily autonomy of a person purely because they have the ability to bear life, is completely barbaric. 

The decision to terminate a pregnancy is never easy, even more so in late term abortions as they have to deliver a still born child. If anyone could believe that these women have made this decision lightly, without any consideration for the consequences is just bizarre and inhumane. 

Not only that but these “pro-life” supporters have assassinated a man, bombed clinics, burnt down a barn (killing 21 horses) and made threats towards the doctors, nurses, their families and patients of these clinics.

Furthermore, it baffles me that there are so many people who are pro-life for foetuses, yet they are unwilling to support welfare, public healthcare or even improved education systems.

Maybe when a person can have a child and receive free healthcare, the welfare to afford to feed that child and an education that can give that child the best possible life, I’ll listen to your anti-abortion arguments.
