What's up. Are you still drunk from last night? If you aren't, do you feel like this website leaves you out? Don't worry, one of my three BFFs Haviland never drinks alcohol ever. So you're not alone. Although she did promise me that if I got a book deal she would have a shot. That may never happen. Where was I? AH YES. Today on AUTOSTRADDLE. Well, people on twitter can be dumb & homophobic, and y'all are f*cking cute as hell. Healthcare is really screwed up! TALK HARD!
SAME-SEX COUNSELING: "A big source of what led [clients] to their habit was a . . . kind of a self-hatred ...

Or is she just the rom-com's quirky/eccentric-girl-next-door (a la Two Weeks Notice) forevs & evs? Three Reasons Why Sandra Bullock is going to be Just Fine.

What Porn Teaches Us About Lesbians: "When you get right down to it, the only real difference between lesbians and everyone else is that lesbians don't stand there and jiggle their own breasts.
