Just Period Shaming Things (231/365)

Just White Feminist Things (174/365)

Note to readers : I'm not bashing white people, or white people who are feminists, just the brand of white feminism that only focuses on the issues that are about white people and ignore the struggles of people of colour.

Women in Anime Truly Suck (163/365)

Now I know this doesn't apply to every single anime, but for the most part, the female characters suck. They're usually a 2 dimensional pair of boobs, and honestly it's just upsetting.
