actually it's only a city if it has a robust public transit infrastructure that allows you to get to any point in the city without using a car. otherwise it's a sparkling suburb
@melissasage LA, the sparkliest suburb
@melissasage oh boy. we have public transit but it certainly doesn't allow you to get to "any point." and I believe the reasons for that are racist, in part
@melissasage Did you come up with that definition/distinction, or is it something published I should know?
After realizing it's sparkling and not sprawling, I guess it's the former.
@stuff this is a shitpost but it's based on the groundbreaking modern urban geography work of Édouard Siddon, do you know him?
taking the bait
@melissasage who's Édouard?
@stuff it's really funny that you just called living, breathing people with lives, hopes, and dreams "human trash" and unironically called *public transit* dehumanizing literally one sentence later. go take a Pepto-Bismol
@melissasage I hate public transit now
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
