Radical Dirigibles- Black Socialists, Anarchists, Reformers and Airships

    1. thanks for the share. of course, i don’t agree with the entire gist of your somewhat snarky virtual space–that PoC, women and other marginalized groups are kinda ruining steampunk’s “fun” for you by pointing out uncomfortable issues of sexism, misogyny, racism, privilege, colonialism and exploitation both in the Victorian/Progressive century we draw from–or the imagined ones we create. i’m glad such persons exist, otherwise who would ever bring up anything? from your posts, don’t think we marginalized folks can count on your good graces to do so can we? i hope they continue to frustrate you and others in the genre. i hope they continue to frustrate *me,* to get me to think beyond my narrow perspective of the world, and on matters I may have taken for granted or been misinformed. How Glad We Are… indeed. Oh, ironically, wouldn’t you know this particular blog post wasn’t about telling anybody what they can or can’t do in steampunk; rather it was about steampunk’s ability to explore certain silenced spaces. but the next steampunk related post i got? yeah… all about asking steampunks to question some aspect of the genre many take for granted. FRUSTRATE! 🙂

Share your thoughts, cuz I'm not just writing to hear myself talk....
