Hi! I can’t believe it — it’s been an entire year since I joined the Autostraddle team. Which means… SUMMER IS HERE! You can always count on us to bring you new merch during this time of the year. Insider fact: it’s because of A-Camp. We always premiere our new ideas there, and then bring them to our wider audience here, on Have you heard of it?

Are you ready for what we’re about to throw down? Yes? Stop trollin’ and get to scrollin’!

Gender Traitor Tee – $25

Unisex Sizes (S–3XL)

Left: Kayla is wearing a black unisex tee w/ 'Gender Traitor' graphic in neon pink writing / Right: Studio detail of shirt

Kayla is wearing a Medium.

Among many things, this tee inspires reaction from those “in the know.” A small smile, a double-take, the widening of the eyes as they flick from your neon-emblazoned gender-traitoring chest up to your beautiful gay face. Inspired by the name used to denote LGBTQ people in “The Handmaid’s Tale,” The Gender Traitor graphic is screen-printed in neon pink & white, on Alternative Apparels Eco-Jersey Unisex Crew tee.

Gender Traitor Tank – $25


Gender Traitor Tank in Royal Blue

Gavin is wearing an XL.

For a sweet, summery look, we’ve also printed this graphic on a vibrant flowy tank by Bella + Canvas. It evokes the exact same sentiments as the tee, except you’ll most likely be wearing it underneath a blazing hot sun flashing your blazing hot guns. (And by guns I mean your arms, obviously, I don’t think you should hold guns while wearing this tank top).

Basic Autostraddle Tank – $22

Unisex Sizes (XS–2XL)

Left: Grey Unisex Muscle Tank with Autostraddle logo screen printed top-center, just below neckline. / Al wearing Autostraddle tank.

Al is wearing a Medium.

Back in March, an A+ member asked a thing that many of you have been asking. When will you make a shirt for me? You know, a simple, low-key shirt that (1) expresses my love of Autostraddle while (2) not expressing an extremely nuanced and specific gender identity?

The Autostraddle logo is screen-printed teeny-tiny on a soft, dark grey heather jersey muscle tank by Bella + Canvas. That’s it, that’s all–maybe your summer shoulders will be snuggling with this tank top soon!

    • it was honestly difficult putting these graphics together i kept burning my fingers
      get it
      cause everyone is HOT

  1. this made me think of a new acronym for remembering the notes on the lines in the treble clef:


  2. Hi I was the girl who was freaking out at the merch store at camp because the AS shirts are so damn cute and the first person working the booth told me they had run out of Larges and I went away to be sad and then someone in my cabin told me later that they HADN’T. And I got one and it was a very happy ending.

  3. I’m still waiting for larger pins or ones that glow in the dark, but these look shirts look totally cool. I take they come in trans woman sizes too?

  4. I had to take a minute to think about why that was on a shirt as gender traitor is also…well, the women who voted for trump despite his anti feminist stance. For those not ‘in the know’, that’s what this shirt says. Maybe not one to wear to a protest unless you identify as male :/

    • In The Handmaid’s Tale, lesbians/queer women are called Gender Traitors by the fundamentalist regime that’s in power.

  5. Autostraddle Merch being 100% awesome once again.

    Also, why did I not think of a BLACK jean jacket before?!? If someone’s got a hot link to one like Audrey’s, I…I don’t know, but I already love you forever.

    • It is GREY and I love it. But I bought it at a second hand store long ago and have never seen anything like it in a store. Levi’s makes a black version of its classic denim jacket, though! This much I know.

  6. this was great timing – I’d promised myself I’d buy a Soft Butch shirt once I got a job, and I start on the 12th, so I just bought my reward shirt!
    (the new shirts look cool too but Soft Butch is the most relevant to my aesthetic)

  7. LOVE the gender traitor design. Crossing my fingers that y’all might put that and/or the gal pal shirt on a crop top? (Different t-shirt cuts are the only way I can justify continuing to buy queer shirts at this point.)
