I guess for something to truly be absorbed into the mainstream, it has to have dissenters. I don’t even want to post to the thread on the original article, but… seriously, snark much?

Let people love what they wanna love. Meh. Panties? Wad? Yes.

My biggest complaint about this “insightful article”? No nods to the literature!

Actually, it seems like the fellow is looking for a bunch of Morrisites. Maybe I should start a new movement: morrispunk, after William Morris…

Regardless, he’s brought more attention on steampunk culture, like it or not, than detracted from it. I honestly think he’s just pining for attention. Ah, well.

Like one of the commenters said: It’s about FUN.

Egads. Grow an imagination.
