Oh Boy… Shorts! New Unicorn Plan-It Shirts and “You Do You” Briefs Now on Sale!

One time we had a fundraising campaign to hire the necessary tech support to keep our little-website-that-could alive. Y’alls support blew our $40,000 goal out of the water within 21 hours. Then this other time we wrote this post about what we would do at each fundraising milestone to keep the incentives coming, to keep you happy and give you things that you wanted.

We promised to make “You Do You” underwear when you got us to $50,000 and obviously you eventually got us WAY OVER THAT, so here we are making good on our word!

Our “You Do You” boybriefs are now available in The Autostraddle Merch Store!

The “you do you” is printed on the side of aqua-colored American Apparel Unisex Baby Rib Briefs. They’re comfy and are some of the team members’ favorite undies to wear. Next on our list of things to make for you are “Straddle This” boxer briefs (which I am excited about because I love American Apparel Unisex Boxer Briefs and I want to share the magic with you). So stay tuned for that!


We’re also happy to announce that brand new Unicorn Plan-It shirts are also now available in The Autostraddle Merch Store, and they’re going fast. These 3/4 sleeve Raglan Baseball Shirts were very popular at Camp and are a fantastic opportunity to support the people who brought you the scissor bump!

See, it’s hard to believe but I think the shirts make Sarah, Ashley, and Haviland hotter than they already are.


As always, thanks for your support! Here’s that link one more time:

    *Throws wallet at the laptop screen*

    I really did just throw my wallet at my screen in excitement about the briefs. Hot mess.

  2. When I first saw the boyshorts in the store graphic I literally gasped with excitement, but then they weren’t available yet and I was bummed, but now that they’re finally here I’m ecstatic, and soon they’ll be on my ass were they belong.

    • I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been daily refreshing the AS merch site ever since I saw the boy briefs in the store graphic.

  3. I’ve decided I’m going as Sarah Croce for Halloween and my costume will be just these two things.

    • These definitely are briefs! A form of brief. Sorry guys every thing we make is unisex as to satisfy the spectrum of body types and gender presentations of our audience. These fit more people than the girl-focused “boyshorts” that you linked to do.

      • I’m kinda bummed too… but when you explain it, I totally get why you picked this style. It’s more inclusive which makes sense! It won’t suit me, but I can definitely enjoy seeing others in it :)

      • Interesting how the ‘unisex’ version is the more masculine cut.

        (#boyshortsfan #butreallytho)

        • i don’t agree it’s the more masculine cut among thong, classic or high-cut briefs, boyshorts, briefs, boxer briefs or boxers. besides contributors could have discussed the specifics of the milestones on the indiegogo site.
          i totally dig this briefs!

      • um, is there anything hotter than a femmey femmefemme wearing boys clothes? like a girl playing dress up. i want to gobble them up so they can never get away. femme girls wear your boi/boyfriends hoodies and i will jump in all of your pockets because i love you.

  4. So, are the baseball Ts unisex size? Because daaaaaaamn winter is coming and I need a shirt as modelled by Croce to keep me warm.

  5. I will be DEFO buying the “Straddle This” boxer briefs. I believe my boy/girlfriend will heartily approve. As will my junk.

  6. YES I was dying for one of those baseball shirts and then you guys made them. Autostraddle wins again.

  7. Briefs bought. Now I can wear them with my Straddle This tee and my You Do You tote and represent.
