Hey /lit/ quick question. I know quotation marks mean quotes, but i also though they could be used to indicate sarcasm (due to the air finger quote gesture) is that wrong?

Yes, but you still have to be quoting something.

The air finger quote is exactly that: quotation.
Sarcasm is pulled off more neatly by italicizing the words that mirror the verbal hints given when someone's being sarcastic; that little shift in voice, or the subtle elongation of vowels.

Made a picture to demonstrate.

No, quotation marks don't indicate "sarcasm".

Yes.

For example:
>american """"education""""

Why 'don't' quotation marks 'indicate' sarcasm?

It really depends on the format. In a formal setting you really shouldn't, no. In casual format, only a true autist would give you shit.

But really, italics are better where possible.
