Is the sf/f/h world so conservative now that newness itself is "punk?" If so, we're in even more trouble than I thought...

This may well be the case, combined with the creator of the terms wishing to perceived as avant garde.


I understood what was "punk" about the originator of the term, "cyberpunk."


This is the case. Then came steampunk. Then came splatterpunk. All these in the '80s. Then there's a quiet period, until about the second half of the first decade of the 21th century, when the punk explosion began.
