Hello Autostraddlers! As you may recall, every spring around this time a bunch of websites (like AfterEllen) and magazines (like Maxim) put together a “Hot 100.” A “Hot 100” is a series of 100 photographs of women considered “hot” by the readers of said magazine/website. Needless to say the list skews towards “famous” and “really fucking famous.”
We felt so so so so so hot in May of 2009 that despite being a little baby website run by four girls who worked 60 hours a week, we’d assemble our very first Hot 100. This Hot 100 ranked — what else? — Hot things! Stuff that made the cut included Hot dogs, stovetops, hellfire, walking on the beach when the sand is really hot, Global Warming, etc.
Last year, although we agree with the other websites that Olivia Wilde has a very nice forehead and overall faceplate and although we agree with ourselves-in-2009 that hot tubs are indeed quite hot, we decided to once again completely revolutionize the genre and ask to see you! That’s right, hottie! Anyone was allowed to submit themselves or someone else.
What will we do this year?
Once again, we are enchanted by your collective hotness and want to see 100 Hot Girls Who-Like-Girls. We wanna see All the Real Girls. But the rules are different. This year it’s on you to get your mega-hot girlfriend on the list.
