  1. 1:33!!! And I had to completely guess 5-down and 6 & 7 across. On the plus side, I definitely confirmed that I am femme-sexual because even with four letters filled in, I couldn’t guess the first letter of 6-across. I tried it with both P and F because both of those made the word into an adjective that I would find swoon-worthy :D but I only got the correct letter by figuring out what would make 5-down into a name XD

  2. I am enjoying these puzzles so much! I have never been a crossword person but I feel like practicing with these I’m starting to learn the “rules” and getting better at it. So much fun! So glad this is a new Autostraddle feature.
