Impressment Gang

I am not 100% sur eI have the numbering right. I think they merged two issues into one, as indicated by the flip book format.

My earliest impression of the magazine was negative as the story ‘Songbirds of Southern Ontario’ by Anne Baldo put me in a bad mood. First it used a character having trypophobia as an example of him being a jerk. Every time this character appeared in the story, it was negative – which is fine – but then using this condition to show him as being ‘bad’ is really unfortunate mental health shaming. Then, int he same story, a veterinarian said that it was perfectly acceptable to take a puppy home at SIX WEEKS. That is really irresponsible of the writer.

Having said all that, the issue really bounced back with ‘Miller Party of Six’ by Annie Stopyro. It was a real interesting look at the troubles of being an introvert in a world that sees that as a failing.
