Today on Autostraddle:
Meet our Natalie! She’s going to save the world and it won’t hurt a bit, just put on your paper gown and relax. Natalie has been working with prominent Women’s Rights organisations for years and will be lending her talents to us twice a month or so.
On an entirely different note; wordpress won’t let me upload my entire hard drive of women in men’s underwear, but we’ll settle for half: we love hot girls in boyshorts!
Every week Carlytron watches too much TV so you don’t have to. And if you did? Well, there’s lots to talk about in her newest column! (Sidenote Related Breaking News: Who is gonna get the Dollhouse Award for Dollhouse if there’s no DOLLHOUSE?) (SIDENOTE related breaking news: Not cancelled, JK!)
Today in Stuff That Actually Matters:
At the Huffington Post, Tony Blair thinks the U.S. will accept gay marriage soon enough and that the Pope is being silly and The New Republic reminds us of the plight of the gays and lesbians abroad, and Gawker’s got a map that shows gay marriage spreading across the land.
Larry King hosts ridiculous evangelicals Joel Osteen & Victoria Osteen. The only thing worse than a couple of douchebags is a couple of stupid douchebags:
My email BFF Joe Solomnese of the Human Rights Commission takes on the OM NOM NOM ringleader, who I suspect had a little romp in the hay with Sharon Fairbanks once upon a time:
Super Cute Protestors is a blog that celebrates “cute boys with conscience,” compiled by gay men who think social action is sexy (via @audaciaray): “If the fall of capitalism is anything like the fall of your pants, I’m totally down.”

Today in Stuff That PopMatters:
Marlee Matlin: former cokehead, pothead, etc. Just like my first wife! And me!
Laurie Metcaff: Farm Shmarm! She’s going to Broadway! Take that Ilene Chaiken!
Erin Daniels: Will be on CSI tonight with Charisma Carpenter. I have no clue who Charisma Carpenter is, but she has a lovely name, probs makes gorgeous homes. Thanks to Nicole for the tip.
Clementine Ford: Is on Access Hollywood dishing about loving the ladies, the title of her segment is “Clementine Ford Comes Out.” Apparently they missed the memo regarding Clementine’s aversion to all her public conversations being labeled as “coming out” events.
from Carly:And now for one of my favorite topics… organization! Lifehacker has a nifty list of top 10 home office hacks up right now. Some might seem obvious but they’re all really good things to do if you spend a lot of your time working from home, plus they’re all pretty simple and user-friendly!
from Crystal: Did everyone know that Missy Higgins released a new EP last week? I didn’t. It’s titled ‘More Than This’, and contains some awesome covers such as Tom Petty’s ‘Breakdown’ and Patty Griffin’s ‘Moses’. The EP is a fundraising initiative to stop the government from industrialising areas of The Kimberley, which is a mountain region about the size of Cali and an area Missy holds dear. The unfortunate news is that the EP is only available through iTunes Australia.
