  1. Also that link to the Stephanie Beatriz story is wrong, it leads to the Kristen Stewart story.

  2. Why do we need another season of the handmaids tale??

    Unless it’s going to be a remake of the hot mess that is season 3 I really don’t get the point.

  3. I will admit I am kind of excited for the Transparent Finally, cause I just want to see how it concludes and how many lgbtq people will be in it.
