I’m frustrated by how often solar punks and post-civs talk about ‘turning our lawns into vegetable gardens’

Villa lawns and golf courses are bad, but the tiny lawn of our living groups is the one place in the sun where we can exist as queer, or mad, or nude as we like and the grass playgrounds in the neighbourhood provide local community building.

And these ‘lawns’ provide a free place to relax in a world where most recreation is commercialized.

So my solar punk future has lawns.

I'm calling false dichotomy on this one.

*Goes back to watching his son play on the lawn with the sprinkler next to the vegetable garden.*



When someone is criticizing a common dichotomy (like my post did)

and describing why the vilified part of the dichotomy can actually be pretty good,

then calling 'false dichotomy' is not a helpful contribution.

Yeah, sorry. My toot was poorly said. I was trying to agree with you by exemplifying the existence of the thing you were holding up as possible and desirable.
