No theme, no agenda. Just come as you are and hang out with me!
It’s the first Friday Open Thread of 2016! And I wanna know everything about your new year, what you’ve been up to this week, and any and all of your feelings.
In 2016, we’re giving ourselves permission to do stuff we wanna do, on our terms, for ourselves. How about you?
HAPPY HOLIGAYS TO ALL, AND TO ALL SOME REPLIES!
We’re smack-dab in the middle of the prime-time of gift-buying season. So get in here and tell me all about your list and whether you’ve checked it twice! Or whatever else you wanna talk about, that’s cool too. Also inside: a peek into what I got my loved ones so far for the season!
On ‘straddlers, on lurkers, on readers and tweeters! Get in here and comment about all of your feelings — holigay-related and not. (You know you want to.)
I hope somebody brought mashed potatoes! Welcome to your Thanksgiving / Not-Thanksgiving-If-You-Don’t-Live-in-the-US Feelings Atrium!
Where are the places in your city that feel the most like home? What bars or coffee shops or vegan joints do you report to on the regular to get your fix, or flirt with a cute barista? Who do you know by name at the dog park? When did you finally figure out your neighborhood, and what are your favorite spots there? Get in here and talk to me about the places where everybody knows your name!
Once upon a time, you were just a little lamb of a baby queer in this big wide world. What did you imagine your adult life to look like? Were you right? Get in here and tell us about it!
Stuff is just stuff. But sometimes some stuff is more. Let’s chat about it. What special trinkets and items are you holding on to? What do they mean to you?
What are you playing? And how did your week go? What are you having for dinner? Did you take any cute selfies recently? What’s been on your mind? I’m here! Let’s talk!
I’m having a lot of feelings about “home” and I want you to come share in this general pool of emotions with me. Or not! Either way, GET IN HERE!
OMG SHOES! Tell me about your favorite shoes. Or what your shoes say about you as a human person. Or how you feel about the word “loafers.” Get in here!
We’ve been hosting Autostraddle meet-ups for years, and now I want you to report back on the good, the best, and the warm and fuzzy. Get in here!
Grab a pillow and cuddle up with me and tell me about your wildest, weirdest, silliest, most terrifying dreams! I’ll tell you what it all means according to my dream dictionary.
Get in here and let’s talk about our FEELINGS and other things, whatever, I’m good to talk about everything forever.
I’m super excited for all of us to throw our chef hats and tacky aprons on and grill up a storm in the name of queer BFF-dom! And whether or not you’ll be at a Babe-B-Q this weekend, I wanna hear all about your life because I love you. SO GET IN HERE!
What’s the last thing you ate that you loved?
So many women feel like there isn’t a space to talk about their experiences in this area. So! That brings us here; we’ve tried to make the space we want to see in the world in the form of this open thread.
I’m almost 25 and everything is so awful but wonderful at the same time! GET IN HERE AND COMFORT ME DEEPLY. Also, I love you, nice hair.
