Hello! Seven years ago today, Jenny died and Autostraddle got born. Much like I do to my mother every year, I forgot it was our birthday today until yesterday, but that hasn't stopped us from putting together a somewhat ambitious plan for posts commemorating the occasion. Like this one, right here! This is a roundtable wherein many Autostraddle team members reflect on stuff they've written and talk about stuff they've yet to write. We are certain this will be fun for the whole damn family.
Birthdays are obviously ripe for reflection on where we've been and where we're going.

Regrets, We Have A Few
On posts we regret writing/publishing and those that led to negative repercussion...
You've Reached A+ Content!
Autostraddle cannot survive without reader support. That's why we have our A+ Member program and A+ content like this, as thanks to readers like you who keep Autostraddle here for our whole community. Will you join A+?
A+ members keep this site majority free-to-read, so sometimes we have bonus content for members as thanks! A+ membership starts at just $4/month or $30/year. If you can, will you join? You get access to bonus content like this post, insider information, behind-the-scenes laughs, and the singular satisfaction of knowing you’re helping to pay it forward for other readers and that you're keeping this bastion of queerness on the internet here for everyone.
99% of our readers do not support. That means that less than 1% of our readers are keeping this site running. Will YOU be one of the people who helps to keep this indie queer media site here for everyone?
We don't need one person to do it all, we need many people each doing a part. Every member makes a difference!

Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We're running the fundraiser through March 29th! We're out of immediate danger...but we had to ask...what if we could survive for longer? Will you help?
