    I drove my girlfriend crazy all weekend with news from Autostraddle Social 1.0™ (that I didn’t know what to call, by the way)

    – Honey, look! Autostraddle has a social network thingy. I created a profile! My favorite sandwich is the Club Sandwich!
    – That’s great sweetie…

    – Honey, I created a group on the Autostraddle social network and people actually joined the group!
    – Good job, sweetie…

    – Honey, I created more groups! And joined and commented on several others!
    – Good for you sweetie…

    – Honey, do you have any ideas for groups for the Autostraddle social network thingy? I think we need a random one for “things that don’t fit into any other group”…
    – Ok, I’m worried that you’re getting obsessed. Step away from the computer.

    Can we talk about how awesome the relationship status options on the new profile are? I kind of want to select “Forever Alone,” “Pining,” “Damaged,” and “Rebounding” all together because they’re hilarious, but uh…maybe I wouldn’t exactly be rolling in friend requests, then.

    I know this is a 99.99999999% lesbian site, but would anyone take offense if there was a group for hetero-straddlers? I know I’m not the only one! Maybe there aren’t enough of us to warrant an actual “group” (maybe a duo…a quartet max?)…but assuming more straight gals discover the awesomeness that is AS in the future, would the founding of a group for us hets piss everyone else off?

    Just curious! I don’t want to start a flame war!

      in my opinion: do iiiiiiiiiit YES because then hetero people will maybe feel less weird? and I think Autostraddle is a place for feeling comfortable. I know come to Autostraddle for comfort. In the form of whiskeykittens and otterkittens.

      a gay transmale friend of mine was like, “Would it be weird if I joined?” and I was like MORE THE MERRIER COME TO US
