A+ Members: Jumpstart Holiday Shopping With 20% Off Autostraddle Merch

Hello! If you're an Autostraddle Plus member, you're well aware of the fact that we are very in need of money at this time.

Anyhow, you can look forward to that new merch rolling in circa Thanksgiving.

But just because we're getting new stuff doesn't mean there aren't tons of classic and also-relatively-new items in the merch store right now that you perhaps have been craving with deep animal hunger! Maybe you look at your girlfriend or partner...
