The Sleepover Club: A Forensic Deep Dive Into The Ick

This week, Ione and Halima are discussing the ick. Defined as; Something someone does that is an instant turn-off for you, making you instantly hate the idea of being with them romantically. We've all been there. But is the ick a natural response, and something we should talk about openly with each other. or does it signal a toxic strand of #DumpHim feminism that views people as disposable, replaceable commodities?

We'll be deep-diving into all of the above and much more, including some of your reasons for getting the ick.
