  1. Not to be a prude, but can the pictures posted on the main page be SFW? I can imagine many of us read AS at work, and I’d hate for this wonderful website to start getting blocked over pictures. I opened to this page in my office and there were tits right there on my work screen. If this is an inclusive space, let’s make it inclusive for office workers too.

    • Hi Ruth,

      I appreciate your concern, even on a humor based article! I want you to know that, like most publications competing in the waters of SEO and social media algorithms that are not particularly queer or trans friendly, Autostraddle has strict rules around what can be used for feature images on our homepage. It is important to us that our content be accessible to a wide variety of readers, however they encounter our website. With that said, at Autostraddle we do not consider post-top surgery scars and chests to be NSFW (Of Note: this is also consistent with how post-top surgery chests are seen on other platforms like Instagram or Facebook, if you were also curious about that).

      One of the affirming things about top surgery for folks is often they get to go shirtless in public spaces where appropriate. Which I think is rad! So on that note, I would also like to gently note that on our homepage right now you aren’t seeing “tits” but a chest. It’s important to us that we’re careful with language that could be dysphoric for our transmasc coworkers and readers. Thanks again! And I hope you got a few laughs out of our content today!

      • Thank you for the response. I apologize for not recognizing the transmasc person in the photo or the scars and using that language. It does feel a bit too sexual for a front-page photo, regardless of who is on it. I see the humor but I am a bit frustrated that now I have to be worried that I cannot read AS at work (when I usually read it). Again, I apologize for my response.

  2. Yeah.
    Autostrattle WHAT is going on. Are you this hard up for content?? I mean this used to be a meaningful resource.
    …Now, what you publish? Is honestly legit fodder for why we’re so mocked and dismissed. Grow up.
