In the new year, let’s say goodbye to relationship drama and welcome stronger ties.
bklyn boihood’s co-creator is here to answer all your pressing questions!
You’ve crafted some longterm goals and set some realistic expectations. Now you’re ready to tackle the most important part of doing the thing: actually doing the thing.
How to deal with food and body comments from your family, why you don’t need to “convince” someone to be with you, the joy and peace of taking a break from social media, and more!
January is a time for resolutions, but I’m going to give you something better than that: A pre-New Year three-week lesson on figuring out what the heck you want to do and actually doing it.
“A lot of what I’m trying to evoke can be represented in the hosts of The Weakest Link around the world. Powerful take-no-shit femmes in suits, oh my.”
As this epic year winds to a close, take some time this month to have all the feelings — and prepare for a dreamier, queerer future.
Happy Thanksgiving from Sam the Cat!
“I just had a crush on myself for like, a month.”
As Jupiter moves into Sagittarius, it’s time to start dreaming big. Release your fears and get ready to grow.
Mary and Kristin talked about a million different topics, giggled a lot, and almost made microwave popcorn. Mary also performed a brand new poem, gave a lot of advice, and left a lipstick kiss on Kristin’s bedspread.
“I can’t stand wearing high heels, and I have no idea how to accessorize — but I want to get out of my comfort zone a bit.”
This week Kristin’s in bed solo to give advice about getting a parent up to speed on what it means to have a non-binary kid, crushes, friendship, Judith Butler, and so much more! Sam the Cat makes a cameo too, obviously.
I’m a Taurus sun, Sagittarius moon non-binary person from France, who recently discovered that they feel much more at home in the men’s section of the stores.
This week, the Sun published a fascinating letter in their Dear Deidre advice column, in which a (presumably straight?) (presumably real???) married woman describes falling in love with another young mother at her child’s school and wonders if their tawdry extramarital affair is built to last.
“How much do I need to engage with my serious girlfriend’s racist immediate family members? She is close with them, and I’ve spent time with them in the past, but put simply I no longer have the energy or inclination to do so, even though I love my gf.”
This week Kristin got in bed with Autostraddle senior editor Heather Hogan to talk about queer representation on teevee, spirituality vs. religion and, of course, cats. (And beer.)
Today we look at a panoply of questions, which, while the situations of their querents are specific and concrete, encompass three of the most common questions we hear in relation to bisexuality: Am I actually bisexual or not? Am I pansexual or something else within the bi+ spectrum? How the fuck do I let people know I’m not straight?
That’s what friendships with queer and trans Christians have taught me: it is blessed indeed to want more, more of everything, more love and more gender and more faith and more life.
“Until recently I’ve lived in boot-cut blue jeans and snarky t-shirts, and my usual fall/winter wardrobe is that plus a flannel and tennis shoes. I’d like to class it up a little bit without having to take ages to get dressed in the morning, but somehow long-sleeve button-fronts just seem so formal!”
