There are plenty of logical ways that an artist can recreate oppression within their world, and then justify its existence. I tend to ask "for what purpose is this created?" and then consider things from that perspective. Perhaps I'm just projecting my own values, but I maintain that given the opportunity, you should seek to dismantle oppression in your invented worlds.

Creating a world and letting others roam it is an inherently political act. You have the ability to design any kind of world. It seems a wasted opportunity to simply recreate the kyriarchy.
