Amandla is writing their own No Filter captions now I guess.

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.

Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We're running the fundraiser through March 29th! We're out of immediate danger...but we had to ask...what if we could survive for longer? Will you help?

Go to our Fundraiser!

  1. 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.
