Anons, my feeling are all over the place. A bit angry, confused, but mostly just sad. All I wanted to do was buy some cute shoes and a nice kimono and they gave me the middle finger instead. Has anyone else, who's buying from Chinese sources, had a similar experience in more recent times? Are the shop owners shitting their pants, because of Winnie Pooh's crackdown on feminine men?
