    Ah this actually makes me so depressed, poor MJ has a classic case of falling in love with a straight girl but in this instance maybe she’ll fall for me BC I identify as a man sometimes hahah…

    Please MJ… I’m praying for your betterment and a sense of better taste, Clancy is literally right right there and doesn’t cake her face in foundation…

    1. Things are really heating up at the LB voting polls today U_U

  11. Omg the mom one 😭 I can’t tell if it’s more funny or sad…

    1. Sad for her, funny for us 🤣

  12. Tiffany is annoying and MJ deserves better, but this dynamic has a lot of ship potential 😔

    1
    1. The potential totally comes from the dysfunctionality 😎😎

  13. I don’t know if i want to cry or laugh
    (Also I would ship this if I didn’t already ship MJ and Clancy)

    1. Not to worry ma’am, multishipping is legal on this land 💪

      3
  14. I find this a pretty interesting example of how community sometimes makes things worse. Because it seems like Tif is having her irrational hatred of women stoked by someone whose biggest motivation is probably just to alleviate their friend from distress, but is ultimately helping them continue to isolate themselves from meaningful and important relationships.

    Also the most base part of my brain is like “yey female friendship” even though this one is a bit toxic 🥲

    5

    1. OOOOH! Love this analysis/perspective ! Thank you for sharing 🥰🥰

    2. I’ve been in friendships/friendgroups that absolutely made each other worse like this. Sometimes you really need a friend to tell you you’re wrong and doing something harmful (to others or yourself), but in those groups, every emotion and action is valid and you’re always all collectively victims of everything other than the consequences of your own actions.

      Though we all thought we were helping. And of course, crushes massively complicate that dynamic, which I’d imagine is happening here too…

  15. Absolutely infuriating. I find it hard to be around women like this, who lean soooo hard into misogyny as if it will save them. Like they can avoid being hurt by it by throwing all other women under the bus. It’s funny, she reminds me of some deeply religious women I’ve known.

    2
    1. Mega condolences on those religious women you know 😣😣
      I can’t stand women who hate other women this much either!

  16. I know Tiffany is supposed to come across as annoying and sexist but I feel mildly bad for her because I feel like there’s clearly something wrong with her to act like this

    1. Your pity well is far deeper than mine, breastie 🤣

      8
  17. I hate them this is so stupid and sexist but also they are Dating and I support how they support each other 😭😭😭

    Also Happy Birthday to leasebound!!! It’s grown so much and I truely admire your persistence and improvement! I hope you and the comic continue to grow and flourish 😊

    1. LMAO, you just KNOW she hates Tiffany’s boyfriend 😅😅

      And thank you!! Five years feel like they’ve just flown by honestly!!

      4
  18. Also I wanna know Tiffanys reasons for hating Cis Bitches(tm)(cr) I’m sure they make perfect and total sense

    1
    1. Steeped in nothing but logic and facts that we wouldn’t understand because of our ~inherent transphobic biases~ 😔😔

      2
  19. How does Tiffany know those women are “cis”, though? Suspiciously transphobic of her……

      I think you might be onto something, Detective Green..

  20. I see a little of Tiffany in misogyny.

  21. Tiffany’s bonkers, but I kind of want to ship them now. XD

    1. No permission needed! Get silly, breastie!

  22. You’re welcome HorseBlair.

    Also lmao

  23. I know this was probably intended as a “MJ in love with a straight girl”, but honestly not my first impression. Maybe it’s cause I’ve been in the same position as a normie where someone I really cared about as a friend wanted special treatment and I would break my back to do so cause I didn’t like seeing them unhappy.

    Not to cause a fan-war on the Tiff-MJ ship or anything. Just MJ’s behaviour is too relatable to a previous platonic relationship I had.
    (This may be why I have more sympathy for Blaire in the QT’s than most. Been there and drank that koolaid)

    1
    1. You’re not stepping on any toes dude, don’t sweat it 👌 Everyone’s allowed their own take away – I’ve been making a more conscious effort recently to step back and let others make what they make of my work 💪

  24. ummm… how can they tell when someone’s cis? 🤨📸 kind of sounds problematic to me, i want one of these “cis bitches” to cancel them both for this and be like “im actually a genderfluid two spirit intersex demiboy and it was extremely upsetting to me to have these two assume my gender…… trans people don’t owe you gender conformity!!”

    1. one of the yonique ladies pulling this when she does that bs of not talking and then if they question her she/say she isn’t she’s just “um can’t identity be complicated and flexible? kind of transphobic of you to act like you know more about my identity than i do 📸🤨”

      7

  25. Lmaoooooo, it’d be hilarious if MJ (or anyone, really) was actually a lesbian but considered themselves bisexual or “pansexual” or whatever because the women they were attracted to included ones with gender-identities.

    1. Dammit, missed opportunity x-x
      Maybe I can work that into Clancy’s thinking..since she fancies MJ.

      EDIT: You’ve given me an idea for another mini comic – thank you breastie :3

      8
  26. Poor MJ.. as a girl whose girlfriend dumped her for men, I can relate to her wanting to be a good friend but still … *YEARN*ing to be more with her. And Tiffany is so self loathing she probably can’t even LOOK at a vulva…

    1
    1. Oh she definitely cannot (but her “”preference”” to find vulva disgusting is very valid because trans~)

  27. Flashbacks to trying to be misogynist because I thought it would mean I was a real man on the inside… being angry/scared of other women because how could they just accept being female… I’M SORRY WOMEN 🙁

  28. Help they are misogynistic girlfriends… why would you give me this toxic shipping fuel 😩

    1. For you to ship them with, dear breastie. 🔥🔥(elmo here)🔥🔥

      2
      1
  29. Can we get a romance arc for these two?? 👀👀

    1
    1. The romantic arc is entirely one-sided as Tiffany is heterosexual 😔
      But anything goes in the realms of fanfic so have at it if you wish 🤣

  30. I ship it sm I wish “Kai” detransed and stopped being such a misogynist, and then realized she’s bi too and in love with MJ… I can dream🥲

    (Btw… TIFfanny and TIMothy… I see whachu did there)

    1. You can dream, you can make the fic/art 👀👀
      (Hehe I do love my double meaning names)

  31. Parniyas biggest fan (and possibly MJ??)

    Wait why is Martha Jane kinda…

    1
    1. No..! NO!! The Prolonged Parniya Deprivation has made her go crazy!!

      4
      1. Parniyas biggest fan

        I NEED PRESCRIBED PARNS NOW!!!!

        1. Someone get this woman 196cm (6’5″) of Parniya, STAT!!
          (I am actually open to suggestions on Parniya extras. I know she hasn’t had a lot of time to be fleshed out yet. You’re so patient queen, my ears are open to your parniya-needs)

        2. Parniyas biggest fan

          It won’t let me reply to your comment so I will put this here, for a suggestion on Parniya extras, hmmm maybe you could do one of those progression pages that shows her at different ages from young to older showing her problems with height at that age, and on the last panel it should be her bonking her head on something and then the hurt spot being kissed better by Shez, to show that even though she still has problems with being a tall woman, she has a supporter now.

          But you know.. I would just be happy with her working out in just a sports bra and sweatpants 👀

        3. Noting down all your suggestions, you’ve actually.. guessed some things I wanted to touch on with Parniya in the future. But I’ve thought of just the page to hit the balance you’re looking for (I think!)

          Thank so much for the input! <33

          1
  32. Everyone else is shipping her with MJ but I hate Tiffany way too much. Have since her bio page. All the het QTs are pretty bad, but she takes it to next level, and I really don’t care WHY she’s doing it either.


    Misogynistic fujo TIFs rarely, ime, have some kind of trauma that other women don’t, and often in fact DON’T have any kind of special tragic issue besides being entitled, homophobic, stuck up woman-haters who think they’re too special and individual and totally a gay maaaaaan to be a gross icky ugly woman. I just don’t have sympathy for that, nor would I wish it on MJ.

    She made my blood boil too with the “just a girl” bit, but I’m more sympathetic to her since she’s actually an ssa woman from a traditional family and she seems actually somewhat kind…women like Tiffany are not kind, and they do not deserve to reap the fruits of female friendship while despising all other women around them.

    She doesn’t deserve anything BAD to happen to her, she just doesn’t deserve female love and support either as long as she treats her fellow woman like this. Speaking of, I bet her BOYFRIEND wouldn’t do this shit for her. If sound bitter, it’s because I’ve known them, I’ve been their supportive female friend, and the nasty, toxic, homophobic male-worshipping misogyny is REAL.

    Also, while I’m here—-really sideying all the love and demands for a bio, more appearances, and buddying with Faith (who is like twice his age and probably not interested in babysitting) that Nicholas kid.

    Like yes, cute kid, but I’d rather see the ferret, and I just find it sus how the second a non-awful moid appears, the gushing begins. Yes, he’s little now, but he’s clearly already learned not to give a shit about Jaden’s time and boundaries, and while the dresses might seem “cute” now, it makes me wonder if he’ll keep seeing women’s oppression as an accessory when he’s older, and if he’ll be interested in the non-fun gnc things like, say, doing the dishes.

    Maybe I’m harsh, maybe I’m overreacting, but I just feel like the female socialization really jumps out in hopes of a “good male” or one perceived as at least harmless.

    1. Thoroughly enjoyed reading your comment.

      I want to make it clear I that I welcome all kinds of comments and interpretations – and I’m generally encouraging to all because I love seeing engagement with my work (especially when reactions to characters take me by surprise).

      That said, the dressing down of Tiffany’s actions/ behaviour and passionate hatred you have for Tiffany was deeply cathartic to read and entirely warranted.

      I also hold deep contempt for women like this. The snobbish, entitled way she’s written is absolutely meant to reflect that (but still be fun to laugh AT in an “omfg this WOMAN!!” kind of way).

      You put it brilliantly when you said that she doesn’t deserve anything to happen TO her, but that she also doesn’t deserve the fruits of female friendship (that MJ is laying at her feet rn). Loved that.

      I too was disheartened to see comments specifically for more Nicholas bio/side stories that directly referenced my Male Character Policy. Male fawning is such a hard female socialisation to break, and it reminded me why I need to use men as sparingly as possible if at all.

      Even in a story full of women, one man, no matter how bad, can take the spotlight. Not even the AGPgang were bad enough to prevent women fawning for them.

      I had multiple women constructing entire AUs where they were just dysphoric men, who actually advocated for women. (Which again, I thanked to encourage engagement for, but was still disheartened by their focus on fixing such vile creatures. And this is also to say nothing of how the amount of fanart for AGPgang rivals that of all the fanart of every single female character).


      I also got anons who frequently asked if they would be getting redemption arcs – some for just the two who didnt get a chance to assault Jaden before Parniya chased them off, some who admitted they didnt remeber how violent the balding one was.

      Like all male characters in LB, Nicholas exists as a device to boost female characters. Specifically, he is there to create comedic suffering for Jaden – like in his comic appearance how she searched in all these inconvenient places for the dang ferret, only for him to be under a staircase.

      I will say, those who liked the idea of Nicholas being friends with Faith likely didn’t realise the age gap. I never wrote it anywhere to my knowledge, but you are right. I intended him to be four or five-ish (while Faith is ten).
      Going to preschool a few days a week sort of thing (hence why he’s home during the day).

      I loved your point about how he’s cute to many now by virtue of being a little kid, but that his patterns of behaviou could take a more severe shape as he grows up.

      It’s not something I had given much thought to, because he’s such a minor character he doesn’t even have a bio – but it’s an excellent point.

      So is the way you touched on hid specific brand of gender nonconformity. It’s all well and good for little boys to be able to dress up as Elsa without ridicule, but will he take up female-dominated chores with the same gusto?

      Again, something that wasn’t really taken into consideration because of the minor role he plays. It’s why him wearing princess costumes is never addressed by anyone. I got a lot of flack for “hating feminine men” with the AGPgang, and wanted to put an example of neutrality towards it in my work with Nicholas. That’s its function.

      But you are right. Even as one of the non-antagonist males in the series, Nicholas has many faults and shouldn’t be fawned over.

      Anyway, once again, thank you for your comment. It was a pleasure to read and I’d love to see more of your thoughts!

      1
      1. Aw I’m glad! I felt I might be reaching with Nicholas, but it really does bug me how people—presumably women, given the comic’s target audience, and presumably radfem women at that– will gush and grab at the slightest male content.


        It’s also always irked me how, while feminine behavior IS indeed ostracized in men/boys by society at large and that’s not right, there’s also the demographic that will just go gaga over praising a male performing feminity in a way they would never laud a woman, and I don’t think that’s right either.

        I don’t think they should be lambasted for wearing dresses and heels and so on, at least not from a place of sexism and homophobia, but the way so many women will leap to praise and adore them for just doing ….what women are expected/made to….leaves an uncomfy taste in my mouth too.

        And again, it’s always dresses and heels and makeup and “fun” stuff that they can take on and off, it’s never making dinner on the regular. Which I would not expect Nicholas to do or want to do since he’s four, but you take my point.

        And yeah ugh like all the art for AGP gang is like…insane. And not even just hate art, but like you said, AUs where they’re NOT the despicable misogynists and are sympathetic dysphoric or genuinely gnc men. .

        .why?


        Like, just why?


        What’s the motive there?

        Ditto for the common (at least it seems to me) requests for a positive male cast member. Seems very sus to me. I’m sure there’s a population of nice gay gender-critical men in the Leasebound setting, but you know what, we’re never gonna see them because they’re doing the most decent thing they can and staying out of the lives and business of women, especially lesbians.


        That’s my hc for where all the “good” males are.

        1
        1. Not a reach at all! You extrapolated straight from male behaviour in real life! I was nodding the whole time thinking “shit, she’s right. she’s so right!”


          And absolutely, can canonically confirm that’s where the good gendercrit gay men are. Off-screen, having a nice time. That’s why gay men are included at all, as adoptive parents in long term relationships, as club goers enjoying a new karaoke stage. Because I want gay men to live without homophobia, but that’s enough for a lesbian webcomic x-x

          2
      2. Glad to hear they’re having a good homophobia free time, hopefully far away from Tiffany and Elissa!


        Also re feminine men: I can say I for one never saw the AGP gang as a dig at gnc men.
        They’re very clearly a criticism of a very specific type of rapey fetishistic sexist man who sees womanhood as a sexy costume and a way to gain access to lesbians. There’s nothing “feminine” about that behavior despite it involving the costume thereof (which probably helps with tricking a lot of women into seeing them as harmless–the ol’ “wolf in sheep’s clothing” deal.

        They certainly don’t pass as women, but they might be taken as genuinely “feminine” gay men if you were a normie who didn’t know better) It doesn’t matter how much makeup or ruffles a man wears, there’s nothing more male than the entitlement, rage, violence, and rape threats/fantasies that result when told “no” by a woman.

        Nicholas’s dad doesn’t wear dresses or makeup that we’ve seen, but he’s tons more genuinely gnc just by apologizing to Jaden and not trying to recruit her as a babysitter. The AGPs version of feminine is all artifice, not authentic, based in their own very MALE fantasies of what a woman is. That’s how I see ’em anyway.

        Not actually feminine at all, much like how Tiffany’s refusal to speak to a waitress isn’t actually masculine at all, as another commenter pointed out. it’s a very FEMALE sort of sexism. And the AGPs form is very, VERY male.

    2. Dear Tifhater,
      Did you secretly sneaked in on Rusty and I dm’s to say exactly what I’ve been ranting at her about Tiffany and the sudden “oh a cute boy! let’s put him into Faith’s dearest hands and make her get a taste of what being an older sister is! :D” wave that made me soooooooooo angry too ?

      Also, are you single ? Wanna marry me ? And if yes, can we have a horse for a flower girl at our wedding (female of course)?

      4
      1. I am super single because dating as an ACTUAL lesbian in the current climate is impossible and all the “queer” dating apps have been invaded by hets of both sexes but especially TiMs. Let’s do this thing, horse and all!

        2
        1. Went searching for lesbian horse wedding pictures for you both, to celebrate this momentous occasion (leasebound’s first comment section wedding!!).
          Please enjoy the results:

          Many congrats to the happy couple!

          3

  33. SIGH Ive been quietly raging over this page. i dont like you tiffany. these women are so sexist against women while still being women. mad that the voters are forcing me to see more of kai soon. waiting for the actually cool characters who aren’t sexist to save me.

    I know some people want to see them kiss but personally I want to see them fight because Tiff refuses to speak to a woman, but MJ is like “…..wait” bc she sees parts of herself in the woman that tiff refuses to speak to. Like the woman Tiff is refusing to speak to is just like. A LITTL gnc or whatever. But Tiffany needs WAY more then MJ does to be like “oh it’s ok this woman is Not A Woman She Is A Person” so Tiff refuses to consider this woman as anything but a woman until the woman PERFORMS Enough Not A Woman behaviors and renounces womenhood to satisfy Tiffany’s women hatred enough.


    but yeah i want to see them fighting and arguing and I want MJ to be like Ok Thats It and then Tiff has to realize how much she’s been relying on MJ’s labors (IS MJ ALSO THE ONE WHO DOES ALL THE DISHES? BECAUSE TIFF IS A MAN AND DOING CHORES MAKES HER DYSPHORIC [but she will do them for her boyfriend its only when another Sort Of Woman is around tiff will refuse to do chores]). MJ you walk out and Tiff has to struggle to get by realizing she really screwed up because she hated women so much that she refused to listen to MJ’s perspective about “hey maybe you can treat this one woman decently because she might not be like me!”.


    gosh all the effort this takes to cater to tiff’s sexism the way MJ is a damn Rug for tiff to wipe her sexist feet all over. MJ is also a sexist jerk enabler but again AT LEAST SHE TALKS TO WOMEN!!! How often does MJ speak for herself when she’s so busy speaking on tiff’s behalf sheesh

    I wonder what the QT collective even does when something like that happens. when there’s infighting among their members and both side is “valid” WELL OBVIOUSLY KAI DOESN’T WANT TO TALK TO CIS PEOPLE WE MUST RESPECT “HIM” —- BUT JASPER/SATURN/STAR/WHOEVER THIS IS IS RIGHT HE/SHE/IT/STARSELF/WHATEVER WAS GETTING TRANS VIBES FROM THAT PERSON AND WE CAN’T LET “KAI” MISGENDER THIS PERSON. i guess they let babygirl walk in and pick who his favorite member is and then everyone agrees with babygirl. ew.

    anyway thats my unwritten LB fanfic about qt collective drama. it ends with mj and clancy running away. when they re-enter normal thinking they suddenly have so much more brain power to devote to their studies bc this gender crap took up so much time and effort and they ace every class and follow all their dreams forever the end. unhinged slightly disoriented and tired concept but hopefully enjoyable to Some One.

    really MJ you are coming off like a total doormat and that is unfortunately relatable to me Ive spent many decades as a doormat. I feel like Gender has given her one place to explore standing up for herself and getting her whims catered to. people who jump through hoops to identify her in the right way must feel good after a life of being STEPPED ON!!! Finally people who ~see her and care about what she feels internally~ but she needs to see that this isnt the danged solution. she’s still getting stepped on even when a gender. GET OUT OF THERE, MARTHA-JANE. YOUR SURNAME IS LITERALLY “RUNMILL” BUT YOU COULD SPREAD YOUR WINGS AND FLY IF YOU WOULD JUST stop it.

    but instead ur gonna call women terfs, arent you runmill. arent you. i hope you one day say you’re sorry. I don’t relate to gendercrits who talk about having former gender identities, thankfully I was old enough when gender got popular on tumblr that I had enough of a developed brain so I didn’t get quite as sucked in as a lot of younger women do. (if i was born a little later i worry what would happen HA.

    I acknowledge that these ideas pray on vulnerable women, and I assume my socially anxcious teen self wouldn’t have been immune. I like to imagine myself being smart and like Nope! I’m thinking critically! but i just can’t know for sure.) So I don’t know what that it’s like to come being deep into gender. but SOME of these QT collective girlies have to be some ExGender GenderCrits someday, right. even if we never get to see who that ends up being, it has to be some of them. I Am Dreaming.

    sigh. more tiffany next week. (unless i go to the library and get on all the different computers and cast a vote on each computer then…… oh i would need at least 28 different computers… maybe if i simply grab a vpn and then… no girl no. let the weirdos have their gendies.. you have to see them eventually anyway….) just gotta get through the hard times, and then i can see the good times. . . . . . . . i can always go back and look at the previous page which i loved so much. the power is mine…..

    1. Tenbelow talking to herself in the comment section? this is how much gendies harm a brain

      girl did you just say you spent “many decades” as a doormatt. you are not THAT old. I’m just letting you know. thanks. Oh wait, you meant to say that reading Tiffany speak has aged you ten years per word? oh that explains it… carry on… hopefully this character doesn’t have too much dialog, you’re going to be hundreds of years old by the time this comic ends….

    2. Don’t stew in your rage Miss TenBelow!
      Let it out!! Always a pleasure to read your comments 🥰🥰

      I think you may be pleasantly surprised with next week’s comic – and also the direction TMJ’s friendship takes.

      Making these comics has given me some ideas for further exploration in the future – but we’ll burn that bridge when we come to it.

      3
      1. WOW I wonder what will happen? Will MJ put on the boxing gloves and I will get to see a battle? Will Tiff say “I realize you treat me way better then my boyfriend ever does, so I’ve dumped him and I’m prioritizing our friendship!” (i wish) WOW, WHO KNOWS. Not me! i don’t really try to guess what will happen next in LeaseBound

        as much as i dislike Tiff I also think about her. I wonder if she would ever pick up the concern of “transandrophobia” (I think that’s what they call it…) and have a secret meetings with other “trans mascs” to talk about how isn’t it weird how much more attention trans women always get. There has to be at least SOMEONE who is annoyed that the man derailed their club completely, even if they’re too afraid to say anything. Transandrophobia is so funny to me. transmen seeing that the males in their movement are prioritized, they recongize sexism but can’t name it in a normal way…. At least that’s my experience with reading them talk about it. Would love to see Tiff fight what’s his name president. Would love to see Tiff win that fight. Me and my wild imagination.

        You’re a real good writer and I’m eager to see what you do. 😀 I dare to hope, because you assured me about a “pleasantly surprise”. but i’m not gonna lie, ever since with what happened to our beloved angel Alex, I understand to fear your power as well. You can rip me apart if you so please, and the gendie characters are a fine tool for destruction. Tho as much as they annoy me, they are way more fun then the violent male characters. But again…… Pleasant Surprise….. So the next comic is not the time to be destroyed… (yet…)

        1. Your mind, queen. Your mind :3

  34. Also re Parniya extras: Maybe interactions with Shez’s family since she lives with them? And they’re all women, so more woman centric relationships! I realize this might put you in the pickle of needing new character concepts/designs though!

    1. Oof yes, that would be a bit tricky – and possibly spoil their planned debut!

      Next chapter will be delving into Shez’s family and backstory quite extensively 👀👀

      I would do have future plans to show Parniya’s dynamic in the family tho!

  35. Rusty, for some months now, Lease Bound has been my beacon in the darkness, in the midst of all the gender nonsense (and other stress in my life).

    So a really really big THANK YOU for drawing it to us mere mortals <33 I can FEEL through my screen the exact frustration these gals (Jaden and Co.) go through, bless their socks.

    I relate especially to Riley's panic/sorrow right now in my life. I've recently met this damn wonderful woman in my work and we've really got to known one another on a deeper level.

    She's such a wise and lovely person and we've become such good friends in a short time and talked all things feminism… BUT she has drunk the trans kool-aid and told me how J.K. Rowling has ruined her childhood by being an asshole.

    It's really depressing since she's SO close to peaking (we've talked about biology mattering despite libfems wanting to make every space all-inclusive) and I'm afraid of losing her for good if I talk about my thoughts freely and honestly 😔


    All my friends pretty much agree on the trans stuff and recently it's just been really hard to stomach the idea that they would probably view me as a hideous person if they knew my real opinions – you know, that women are a sex-class and should be talked about as such.


    Some might call it cowardly that I'm hiding, but I'm just not willing to cast those (otherwise fulfilling) friendships away. It's depressing.

    Anyways, just wanted to rant that this comic and other radfem content gives me strength and joy 🙂 Keep being awesome. Also can't wait for The Big Storm 🌩️🌩️🌩️

    1. Hello,
      you are so, so, so welcome! Knowing that Lease Bound is having such a positive impact on other women’s lives makes me so incredibly happy!

      I’m so sorry to hear you’re in such a tricky bind with trans-supportive friends right now. It’s not an easy decision to make for sure 🙁 I think the best think you can do is choose yourself first <3

      It all depends how much homphobia/misogyny/misinformation you're willing to put up with in the end.

      Thank you for sharing, and for leaving such a lovely comment. Can't wait for the Big Storm to arrive B)

      1. ❤️ Thankfully, I’m not going totally crazy since none of them are like Cuties (Lord knows I’d get myself the hell away) and wouldn’t claim something as rapey as “a gay person is a genital fetishist”…. just the usual “trans women are women and every opposing argument is discrimination” etc. That fan art meme about a fan peaking Blaire is my utopia lmao.

        The Big Storm will be a long-awaited band-aid for my Yearning XD

  36. tiffany hater and blaire sympathizer (hypocrite)

    mj isn’t even nearly annoying enough to be with tiffany. as the two most annoying qt members, BRICK and tiffany belong together. i want them to meme themselves into a relationship and then drive each other insane.

    also, respect to the people who don’t wish any harm on tiffany but i truly do want to throw (actual) bricks at her. i know this isn’t very feminist solidarity of me but if she got hit by a car id be pretty happy! id never wish harm on any non-fictional fujos but tiff is truly the most intense caricature of one of the worst types of people ive ever met so i want nothing but bad things for her.


    i really hope blaire tells her to fuck off (i know blaire is also bad but the difference is i can fix her!). blaire might not deserve a redemption arc, but i still want her to at least grow enough of a backbone to tell off tiffany for being such a stuck-up asshole to her and other women
