Those of us that are...
The question on the term witch hunt would need a more historic explanation than I'm about to give here, however here's a short version. Millions of women were tortured and murdered because they were independent or heretics or artists or other beautiful things. Outspoken women are still...
For anyone who has never been stalked, rethink your position if you think someone would make up a story like Lia's.
