Mini Crossword for Irked Androids

I’m so excited to be part of the amazing team bringing crosswords to Autostraddle! As someone who has been accused by an anonymous commenter of planting “LGBTQ propaganda” in my mainstream puzzles, I think this is the right place for me. If you want to check out some of my other work, you can find my favorites at my free puzzle blog, the New Yorker, and the USA Today. Connect with me on Twitter here!

Before you go! Autostraddle runs on the reader support of our A+ Members. If this article meant something to you today — if it informed you or made you smile or feel seen, will you consider joining A+ and supporting the people who make this indie queer media site possible?

    • wait no don’t let let them make you feel like a dummy! if you ever get stumped you can just google the subject of the clue and learn something new! only YOU can decide what counts as ‘cheating’ and what counts as simply ‘expanding one’s knowledge base’ and PERSONALLY i’m always simply expanding my knowledge base 👼🏻
