TBT | Our Heroes are (Still) Problematic

Image contains three photographs placed next to each other in three narrow columns. Each photo contains a male looking at the camera, and he is mimicking the gestures for see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil in each respective panel. Above the men in the photos, there is white text that says "Our Heroes Are Problematic" and below the men there is text that says "Where Am I Wednesday".

Above the dogs, there is white text that says "Transphobia & Gender Reveal Parties" and below the dogs the text says "Where Am I Wednesday".
