  1. I will most definitely be giving myself a Lesberado tshirt. Wish that the Bette for Mayor shirt actually said that instead of 2020 but I’ll probably pick one up too.

  2. Ooh liking that new they/them pin. I already have to the og purple one, the larger green one, and will get this to have all three. How does the size vs the other two? The only thing I want is that NB shirt in pin form. I also plan to get the misandrist pin for my bff cause she keeps getting banned on social media for saying ALL MEN ARE TRASH.

    • Thanks! It was designed by the amazing Betty Turbo (www.bettyturbo.com) who also designed our Bette for Mayor tee. These are 1″ tall, so slightly smaller but infinitely more shiny. It’s a similar size to the OG purple pin.

      Agreed on the NB shirt in pin form — we’ll see how it does this season and will potentially do it. And yes, your BFF definitely needs our Misandrist pin. 100%.

    • any chance you all will do a he/him pronoun pin sometime? I know it’s not your primary audience but many non binary people use he/him (and lots of queer women/nb people date people who use he/him)

      personally I use he/they but would only want to buy the they/them one if I can also get a matching he/him

  3. The neverending dilemma: Love Autostraddle, love the designs, hate crewneck tees and much prefer scoop or V-necks…

  4. 100% in for another color option of Who All’s Gay Here. The original is one of my favorite things to wear.
