Favorite Thing on Autostraddle.com

all of them, one of everything, thanks. Autostraddle is what I have been looking for, it is what I believe The L Word tried to recreate, and partially succeeded, but the difference is Autostraddle: Is real, Is ongoing evolving and expansive, Is an archive of cool writing of opinion, fact and exaggeration, and Involves the queer female community ON EVERY LEVEL. Autostraddle is my lifesaver.
