This week’s Teddy Geiger Thirst Trap Award goes to… Teddy Geiger.

Pictured here is Stephanie Beatriz making great strides towards becoming my best friend.

Does King Princess strive to out-gay herself every single week or does it just happen this way?

I would like to stress that Malcolm is an excellent gender-neutral name, and since my brother didn’t use this excellent idea for my niece, I’d also like to submit that Chewbacca is as well.

Is Sara Dinkin wearing a fancy robe or is she ready for the boardroom? I don’t understand this outfit. I won’t respond to it.

Confidential Memo to All Autostraddle Employees Who Live in Los Angeles: if you were in Janelle Monáe’s SoulCycle class and did not report to me IMMEDIATELY, we are no longer friends. Also, you all go to the SoulCycle in West Hollywood now. I don’t make the rules.

  1. Amandla Stenberg and King Princess are the gays that keep on gaying (individually and even when they were together)

  2. This column has officially confirmed my love of Stephanie Beatriz. I’m still happy I was in the same room as her once! :D

  3. Stef! I meant to send you this the other day but I forgot. I caught ERWB’s Instastory of her watching the “Cool Rider” scene from Grease 2, with the caption “Thank You” with hearts and #michellepfeiffer. I even took a screen shot of it but I don’t know how to post it! I just felt so validated that ERWB & I share this root, tbh.

  4. An acquaintance of mine goes to Soul Cycle in West Hollywood, I will have the ask the person to keep an eye out for Janelle.

  5. I would pay for a “Stef Snark” app that would comment on what’s in my field of vision. I would prefer not to have to wear google glass(es), though. Thank you for considering.

  6. just FYI the latest picture that Tessa Thompson uploaded on insta (with the s/o to chanel), Evan Rachel Wood commented on it saying: “#biconic” WAAAAAAAAA

  7. if i’d dragged my tired ass to purposely exercise and get all gross and janelle monae showed up i would just drop dead

    soulcycle off the great beyond

  8. i wish i’d had the GOOD SENSE to go to soulcycle BEFORE she revealed her attendance at soulcycle b/c now EVERYBODY’S gonna be there and that’s a lot
