We’ve added some new faces to our ranks here at Autostraddle recently, including five new Contributing Editors. Rather than letting y’all slowly get to know each other, we’re gonna cut to the chase right here, right now. This is a no-holds-barred space for familiarizing yourself with our newest shining stars.
I wanna know everything about your brunch plans. Get in here!
Talk dirty to me. But not like Jason Derulo, more like Janelle Monae in the Electric Lady Video, ok? Tell me ’bout your summer, baebae.
I wasn’t on the internet for a month and I received nary an update from the lot of you. I thought we were friends.
Let’s get wild.
Ain’t no party like a Spice World party ’cause a Spice World party mixes up her ’90s pop culture references.
I really wanna know what sign you are! Plus, I’m hoping to find at least 50-100 other weirdos who rely on an arbitrary constellation assignment to guide their daily lives.
I’d like to chat with you about pretty much anything that’s on your mind, especially if it includes your favorite song about the US of A or the memories you have of riding the tilt-a-whirl with your middle school crush at your small town’s Fourth of July carnival. But also, we can talk about anything. Like, seriously anything.
Let’s play show and tell.
Queermos, give me the gif that best describes your relationship status! And remember, that can mean “single” or “ballin’ rn” or “happily surrounded by friends” or “u-hauling” or “it’s v. v. v. v. complicated” or “engayged” or “fuck relationships” or any number of things, so get creative.
Hey! We kind of need you to get in here in order to make this really a party, y’know?
Get me Chinese food, a Red Bull, and way too many blankets, stat!
HAY, GIRL OR OTHERWISE IDENTIFIED HUMANS! It’s Friday, which means it’s time for you to both make a desire map and share your entire life history with me in this open thread. Get in here!
Oh hey so this morning we were on top of a magical mountain but now we aren’t anymore? WHAT HAPPENED WHERE ARE YOU WHAT ARE YOU PLANKING
While people were probably trying to figure out how to get it on in the woods, I was reading Habermas in the library. Come internet with me!
What are you reading? What are you drinking? What did you do this week? Please leave all the comments and comment back and all the things and just be lovely and wonderful in general.
It’s that time of week again! Leave a comment and tell me whatever you damn well please – and I promise to be absolutely intrigued by it. Also, please share pics. I need to live vicariously through your experiences.
It’s Friday which means it’s time for the Friday Open Thread! The article that is just like your journal but also someone else’s journal and also it talks back to you!
Oh hey! COME ON IN! I have never seen The Little Mermaid, and tonight is the night, and I’m kinda into the idea of spending it with you. What I’m saying is, get in here and be a part of my world.
I don’t want to let go my connection to the vibrant, inspiring queer culture that’s not immediately accessible to me in my strip-malls-and-big-box-stores environment. How do you keep it queer in your day-to-day life in the suburbs?
