2016 had its great moments—the first plus size Barbie was released, Joe Biden memes graced our world, and people are actually starting to believe that climate change is a thing. But, it also wasn’t the greatest year on record. Here are 16 things that need to be left in 2016.
1. Teva x Ugg
No, just no.
2. High-fashion Crocs
Actually, Crocs should have been left in 2002.
3. The presidential election
Don’t even get us started.
We don’t even know why this is a thing.
5. Threatening to leave the country when things go wrong
How about staying and facing your problems?
6. Fake news stories
And believing them. Check your sources!
7. Police shootings
This isn’t going to solve anything.
Let’s be women empowering other women.
9. Body shaming
Like some designers refusing to style plus size model Ashley Graham for her Vogue shoot.
10. Injustice towards sexual assault survivors
Like trying to pay them to withdraw their Title IX complaints. Disgusting.
11. Disturbing hazing rituals
This frat had pledges throwing up on each other. That’s just so wrong.
12. Bra inserts being used as makeup sponges
Bras are for your boobs, not your face.
13. Yik Yak
Anonymous threats aren’t really our thing.
14. Nutella as hair dye
Stop this madness.
15. Wishing for an abortion
You may have heard of Lena Dunham’s comment that she wished she had an abortion... yeah, abortion isn't a joke, no matter where you stand on the issue.
16. Blatant racism
Racism in any form is bad, especially when YouTube star Saleh got kicked off a flight for speaking Arabic.
