Hello, Autostraddle! Welcome to this week’s Friday Open Thread! Did you know that from now on there will be a Friday Open Thread every Friday, kind of like how there is a Thirsty Thursday every Thursday? It’s the new rest of the week! Only not really, because the rest of the week exists. But let’s live in the now.
I’ve had a really amazing week because my long-distance total babe of a girlfriend Geneva is in town (!), but she’s been really upset because of a recent discovery that I’ve been living under a rock and never saw any of the formative lesbian movies of her youth. And probably yours.
This is what we look like, by the way.
I’m attempting to bridge this huge gap of understanding in my very serious adult relationship by ordering a pizza, throwing back some beer, and watching a marathon of awful, no-good, can’t-look-away, car-crash-of-a-movie lesbian cinema. It’ll be like the time Autostraddle watched a horrible lesbian movie with The Toast, only probably with more Stella Artois and making out. Our selections will include The Craft, But I’m a Cheerleader, and All Over Me. [Which my editors would like to note are: A) not a lesbian movie but also really good, B) a really good lesbian movie and C) also a really good lesbian movie.]
NOTE: The reason we’re not watching D.E.B.S. or Lost and Delirious is because I’ve already seen them and have them burned into my brain permanently. Also, did you know Lost and Delirious is, in fact, about how two dykes totally ruin poor Mischa Barton’s childhood? My roommates and I used to fight about this all the time: they would be all, the lesbians are the lead characters and I would be like no it’s Mischa Barton and then I’d think, but what if the main character is actually the bird of prey from the weird witch voodoo scenes?
But enough about me. I am but one person in this magnificent Staddleverse and I want to talk about YOU!
What are you doing tonight? What are you drinking? What are you watching? Who are you with? What are you wearing? Sorry, am I getting carried away. Anyway, you should tell me! Seriously. I’ll be here all night keeping you posted on my adventures through my non-existent lesbian past in the comments, and you should keep me posted on your night, too! You can even post photos. Show me yours and I’ll show you mine! By this I mean I will show you pictures of my dog if you show me pictures of your girlfriend. I’ve done this with countless strangers before and it always worked out.
How To Post a Photo In The Comments:
1. Find a photo! This is the easy part. Find a photo on the web, right click (on a Mac, control+click), hit “Copy Image URL,” and then…
2. Code it in to your comment! Use the following code:
If you need to upload the photo you love from your computer, try using imgur.
GO FORTH, SPECTACULAR SPECTACULARS. TELL ME YOUR LIFE. IN THE WORDS OF FRASIER CRANE: I’M LISTENING.
