Usually our WWBUT episodes are our lighter, fluffier fare, but this one gets a little serious.
Warning: Contains discussions of emotional abuse, suicide, and fictional attempted sexual assault against a child. We also have a long discussion about J. K. Rowling and her TERF manifesto and what to do with our feelings as people whose lives were shaped by the series, so if any of that includes things you don’t want to think about right now, please skip this one! We’ll outline where these discussions take place below if you want to skip any particular section. Also contains swearing.
