Hello dearest POMEs! In this post-the-second-presidential-debate world, you might be as  hungry for something NOT Trump or Clinton related. Well my dears, we are here to deliver! Read on and remember what life was like before this dang election took over every aspect of our waking lives.

 


 

Hoooo boy. On the difficult subject of the commodification of feminism, here’s a look at H&M’s bombastic and positive autumn 2016 ad video.

 


 

Wow this is online retailer thieving / general shittiness taken to a NEW EXTREME, WHAT IS HAPPENING
