Dystopia is a white people word that means β€œwhat if all that shit happened TO US?!?”


to paraphrase William Gibson

"dystopia is here, it's just not evenly distributed"

@MrRobinHood Considering what dystopia means, I've thought of the society in which I live as one for a while now tbh.


What a weirdly self-referential interpretation.

@starwall Thanks Starwall!

It’s blown up a bit, which makes me somewhat nervous for some reason...

@MrRobinHood No.

Dystopia is a concept science fiction authors use(d) to demonstrate to non-oppressed peoples what oppression looks like.

@rizzn I'm sorry, we don't mansplain here.

And you literally just repeated what they said. Congratulations, you're one of those guys.


@maloki @MrRobinHood *sigh*

If I point out how you're incorrect on both counts, it'll just reinforce your beliefs.

"When did you stop beating your wife?"

@rizzn nah. But we definitely have completely different cultural contexts, which means we can read the same line of text in completely different ways.

We don't have to agree.
