Stackable blocks and tupperwares FTW!

Feminist views vary regarding the Tupperware format of sales through parties, and the social and economic role of women portrayed by the Tupperware model. Opposing views state that the intended gendered product and selling campaign further domesticates women, and keeps their predominant focus on homemaking.[26] 

The positive feminist views consider that Tupperware provided work for women who were pregnant or otherwise not guaranteed their position at work due to the unequal gender laws in the workplace. The company promoted the betterment of women and the endless opportunities Tupperware offered to women; whereas, the negative view includes the restriction of women to the domestic sphere and limiting the real separation between running the household and a career.[5] 

The emergence of Tupperware in the American market created a new kind of opportunity to an entirely underrepresented labor demographic; women, and especially suburban housewives.

Using a tag to create a reusable “fake” author in WordPress

I was posting an article on behalf of someone else who did not have a WordPress.com user and I wanted to show their name in the “Author” box.

This would be trivial to do using pseudoelements (:before & :after) and throwing the post id (postid-3735) into the selector to make sure the CSS rules only applies to that specific post, like this:

.postid-3735 .author {
	font-size:0;
}
.postid-3735 .author:after {
	font-size:18px;
	content:"John Doe";
	pointer-events:none;
}

The problem with this approach is that cannot be reused. Instead what I did was to create a tag with the name of the author of the post.

By doing this I made sure a new CSS class would be added to the article containing the post whenever this tag was used

And this, in turn, allows me to use this selector:

.tag-carlos-fernandez-liria .author {
	font-size:0;
}
.tag-carlos-fernandez-liria .author:after {
	font-size:18px;
	content:"Carlos Fernández Liria";
	pointer-events:none;
}

Finally, I also added the pointer-events:none property to prevent the Name of the author from being clickable, as it would take to my own author posts page.

Mor10 on the WordPress ethos

To me WordPress is the idea of the web made real. Tim Berners-Lee created the web with a very specific purpose, and that was to make it possible for anyone to publish content onto the web in such a way that any other person with a connection could pull that content down and consume it in whatever way the wanted. WordPress is that stopgap between the technology and the human being in that conversation.
