We finally got around to figuring out how to put up some kind of merchandise on here. BEHOLD! we bring you the “Bring Out Your Balms Mug!” in spicy mayo white or soul of Gilead black. With a 5 cattle prod rating and tons of reviews by Marthas and Handmaids alike, itʻs the perfect mug to use when you are burning down the patriarchy, plotting the resistance, or enjoying a nice mug of Ritaʻs fine pumpkin soup.
We got such joy out of the Balms and Gender Traitors over the past three months, we wanted to put them all in one place. Whether you need a pick-me-up, some inspiration, or a kick in the ass you can find it somewhere in this list. We also listed some of the books we reference during the season. We probably missed a couple but these were the main ones.
This episode was an emotional terrorist and I its victim. Is it wrong that I both loved and hated when my precious Labia Lydia took a prison shank to the back? Is it wrong that I spent 10% of the episode yelling at Offred from my couch? Don't answer those questions, because if I'm wrong, then I don't want to be right.
