Hello and welcome back to No Filter! This is the place where I tell you about the happenings on queer celebrity Instagram! How fun!

Okay let’s start off with some dueling spon con courtesy of our favorite soccer ex-wives. Ali continues to, frankly, slay the narrative. She is mothering, she is working out, she is loved by all and she WILL have it all. Also? Her comments are on.

And then we have Ashlyn, comments OFF, giving us…I mean, uh…gender equality and representation via jewelry! Which is fine, truly this is the hustle, but having these two posts in conversation is realllllly something, huh?

I have not yet begun this season of The Gilded Age, because frankly I needed to rest after the whirlwind that was The Morning Show, but something about this duo is so amusing/concerning to me that I must put eyes on it ASAP? Imagine telling 17-year-old CT that Miranda and Dr. Wilson were on a new show together, her mind couldn’t handle it!

Okay I did not know that Lily Singh’s Diwali celebration was THE place to be!

But like, clearly it was! You learn something new every day!

I don’t know a better person.

This is thrilling news TO ME!

Dropping news about your movie while drinking an iced coffee, it’s giving girl on the go, it’s giving woman of business!

Welcome to No Filter, Billie! I greatly respect your art even though you do make me feel 1,000 years old! That’s just life though!

Ugh I love her and also 🇵🇸

These boots!!!

  1. Hello Autostraddle and Christina !

    I enjoy very much this website, it’s been with me for a while, hope this comment finds you well .
    I have a serious question that’s been bothering me.

    How come you call out patriarchy or racism and not CAPITALISM ?

    Those fuckers go hand in hand and feed oppressive systems. I’d love to see content here where you tackle this issue just like you did with BLM mouvement, Bi erasure or sobriety (it was great)

    Why do you praise rich and famous lesbians, bi and trans ppl for posts where they just sell stuff and are being sponsored by corporate brands ? Does their queerness ( and good looks) make it all okay ?

    I am not promoting some kind of activist purism and I also understand the no filter column is supposed to not be too serious.

    Keep on the good work ;)

    • To be fair some of these folks are just upper middle to lower upper class. None of them are Jeff Bozo or Julia Walton.

      To the other point, all that other stuff they critique is easy to do. It’s hard to critique capitalism why trying to become a rich and famous celesbian. That’s been obvious for many years now the way the founders have acted in the past and based on everything former writers have said. Hell, why do you think they still praise celesbians who have been noted to be awful? It’s also why they chose to team up with a company that is VC funded instead of one that was more ethical with their funding. I’ve been year since year 2 or 3 and you can tell in the last 5-6 years they have gotten softer and praise white celesbians as doing no harm. It’s disgusting.

      Side note: I heard they promised to pay a bunch of writers and artists for stuff like queer outside pictures(I miss those) and queer in the city articles(we only saw like one), but never did. Talk about corrupt capitialism.
