Sluts!

One of my favorite topics is women in media. The way they’re represented, the way they’re treated, the tropes they’re force fed, the ideas given to young girls, the over-sexualization of women in everyday media, it’s my favourite kind of brain-food.  As someone who has spent a lot of time studying tropes and the effects […]
