Sometimes, it can also suggest an entire outlook on life for example, social conservatism, home schooling, or the embrace of traditional gender roles.

    Half of these would be 100x cooler if they didn’t have the word ‘retro’ written on them.

    Very nice, but what about a big zip file so we can put them all in a folder and rotate them.
