|Favorite Thing to Autostraddle||
I don't have anything to physically autostraddle, but I do like when you guys make reading lists!
“You do you”
|Favorite Thing on Autostraddle.com||
NSFW Sunday, the Team Picks, Formspring posts, lists, recipes (especially the vegan ones), the time you schooled us all on Judith Butler, any time you recommend books or movies, anytime you offer advice on starting a girl riot when it comes to reproductive rights or human rights in general. Some day I’d like to actually keep up on the book club selections, because they’re always great.
Kathy Acker, Michael Chabon, Dave Eggers, Tom Robbins, Kurt Vonnegut, JK Rowling, JD Salinger
