Going Urban

If the Dark Lord has forbidden it, you are not to speak...   Master has given Dobby a sock  

An Australian social science student with a peaked interest in urban, social, and environmental planning. I look forward to evolutionary cityscapes, rapid public transit systems, and the implementation of creative, long-term, cost-effective designs.

I've taken to reblogging non-relevant posts between urbanism goodness. I regret nothing.

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

YAAAAEEESSSSSSS

You know what I like, and feel is so important? That he doesn’t say “Men thinks those are THEIR positions”. He says “We think those are OUR positions.”

As a male feminist, he still doesn’t exclude himself from the group of men.

Damn.

Well said.

I think our main concern should be that there are 8-year-old girls whose faces show just how traumatic and exhaustive this conflict is.

It’s important to note that what’s happening on the waterfront is somewhere between traditional planning and the chair-bombings and overnight parklets of guerilla urbanism. Jane Jacobs suggested that urban life can’t be orchestrated from drafting tables, but planners need not abandon pencil and paper entirely. The convention center team wouldn’t have discovered the possibilities of the Lawn on D Street without being immersed in the larger planning for the area.
