it's only cyberpunk if it's actually _punk_
if it isn't a criticism of capitalism and the protags are all cishet white guys that's just sparkling neon scifi
Genuinely sorry about that - forgot to remove you from the chat. Consider yourself non implicari.
@haskal you say "sparkling neon scifi" and all I can think of are those sparkling water Bubly/LaCroix drinks lol
@haskal Actually, there have always been non-political punks or even nazi-punks, as weird as it sounds.
Fortunately, they've been the minority all along.
@haskal In the beginning, the “punk” part was said to be about the writers’ attitude. Didn’t last once the genre got reduced to tropes, though, admittedly.
