This might be or become an actual movement and that’s hype

You need to check out the fuck cars reddit, it’s huge and really cool.

Ehh not bad, but iirc correctly the antiwork sub only started getting srs attention when it hit like 1.2 million

https://subredditstats.com/r/fuckCars the stats look promising though! It’s going to be the next antiwork I bet.

Oh snap, got those covid curves!

I wonder if we’ll do better on Fox News this time around

It doesn’t matter, I don’t want a movement that depends on good representation at Fox news anyways.

I used it last night! #fuckcars

The anti-car movement isn’t just about environmental/‘green’ issues. That’s a significant part, but far from the whole purpose. It has profound impacts on general health of a community, quality of life, cost of living, preventable deaths, economic productivity and more beyond green issues (including various pollutions, wildlife death and unnecessary production).

Dismissing anti-car sentiment because ‘what about this other problem’ is silly: both are important, and they are not mutually exclusive!

that (everything being too far to not drive) is the exact reason why probably everyone else in this community drives a car, and walkable infrastructure is the main thing it promotes. no one here is saying we should stop making cars and change nothing, instead that we should change things so that cars aren’t necessary anymore

What about

This is from your comment my dude which is the definition of whatabout 😛

This community exists as a sister community/copycat community to the r/fuckcars subreddit.

This community exists for the following reasons:

  • to raise awareness around the dangers, inefficiencies and injustice that can come from car dependence.
  • to allow a place to discuss and promote more healthy transport methods and ways of living.

You can find the Matrix chat room for this community here.

Rules

  1. Be nice to each other. Being aggressive or inflammatory towards other users will get you banned. Name calling or obvious trolling falls under that. Hate cars, hate the system, but not people. While some drivers definitely deserve some hate, most of them didn’t choose car-centric life out of free will.

  2. No bigotry or hate. Racism, transphobia, misogyny, ableism, homophobia, chauvinism, fat-shaming, body-shaming, stigmatization of people experiencing homeless or substance users, etc. are not tolerated. Don’t use slurs. You can laugh at someone’s fragile masculinity without associating it with their body. The correlation between car-culture and body weight is not an excuse for fat-shaming.

  3. Stay on-topic. Submissions should be on-topic to the externalities of car culture in urban development and communities globally. Posting about alternatives to cars and car culture is fine. Don’t post literal car fucking.

  4. No traffic violence. Do not post depictions of traffic violence. NSFW or NSFL posts are not allowed. Gawking at crashes is not allowed. Be respectful to people who are a victim of traffic violence or otherwise traumatized by it. News articles about crashes and statistics about traffic violence are allowed. Glorifying traffic violence will get you banned.

  5. No reposts. Before sharing, check if your post isn’t a repost. Reposts that add something new are fine. Reposts that are sharing content from somewhere else are fine too.

  6. No misinformation. Masks and vaccines save lives during a pandemic, climate change is real and anthropogenic - and denial of these and other established facts will get you banned. False or highly speculative titles will get your post deleted.

  7. No harassment. Posts that (may) cause harassment, dogpiling or brigading, intentionally or not, will be removed. Please do not post screenshots containing uncensored usernames. Actual harassment, dogpiling or brigading is a bannable offence.

Please report posts and comments that violate our rules.
