Echo Chamberlings/Trans Redditors/“We” Speak For “They/Them”
People are quick to hate on Facebook about being
An echo chamber. They’ll be like
“Everyone there is friends with
People they already agree with
Sharing and posting things they
Already believe in”
And some of those motherfuckers will say
They prefer Reddit…!
A website dedicated to
Sub threads that some insane asshats
Have turned into lifestyle communities.
I enjoy Reddit in some ways I have
Found tips I’ve used IRL and
I’ve enjoyed putting them to the test.
I also enjoy being a fly on the wall
Like everyone else.
I will say— however
That by design
Reddit is an echo chamber.
For echoing in.
It’s not designed
For individual thinking—
You get upvotes, downvotes, karma and coins—
The community that joined in
Will gladiator style
Determine your worthiness.
For some things—
Like house repair, software development
Random other things that aren’t
The non-community threads aren’t as bad
But the trans redditors
Use shit like
And speak for they/them.
