Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.

Emily has written 100 articles for us.


  1. This helped make my night. Woot Canada!
    The only thing that beat this is my attempts at flirting with the cute coffee shop girl tonight. Key word being ATTEMPT. Come to Canada and teach me how to flirt! Or we can all meet up later at Hogwarts, whatevs.

    • When I read “Come to Canada and teach me how to flirt!”, I didn’t finish reading the sentence.

      In my head it read “Come to Canada and teach me how to Dougie”.

      I imagined a group of lesbians showing up at this coffee shop, and doing the Dougie. Just to help you get this girl.

      • I’d say that’s cool or seomthing, if i knew what Dougie was. Maybe I don’t need to know, just tell me how awesome a coffee shop would look filled with lesbians doing it? I’m going to pretend pretty rad.

        Also I may not need as much help as I thought as we totally got to chatting last night (while i creeper her at her work, yes i’m a dork) and hit it off!

        My number was given out, and as of last night an hour of texting back and forth makes me think things went well.

        I’ll be the idiot girl doing a (very poor) excited dance over in the corner*.

        So thank you auto-straddlers for the good vibes! woot

        *Seeing as this is my first fully sucessful and real attempt at flirting- and it worked! Without embarassment!!

  2. Hey, look at that I got an award!

    Not quite sure how to feel about my first comment award being a result of my non-Canadian appreciation of Celine Dion and being called out for probably being Canadian. Even though I’m not. *shrugs*

    And can comment award posts get awards for next week? Because I thoroughly enjoyed the above exchange.

  3. OFMG, I usually devour EVERYTHING you pretty people post and the one freaking day I get a comment award I miss it. Anyway, thanks! Day totally made. Also, Emily, I think you should get some sort of pass on reading the comments for how to meet queer ladies. It’s just a behemoth of insanity.

  4. Today at work somebody asked “where the Hell are they? It’s like they dissappeared…” to which I responded, “maybe they dissapperated.” For this i received the did-you-really-just-reference-harry-potter look which I countered with a why-didn’t-you look…

    I love Harry Potter.
