It’s Underwear Week! If Autostraddle owned an underwear store, it probably wouldn’t play the weirdo Top 40 that plays in Victoria’s Secret. And if I ran it (or Stef, probably even moreso with Stef), it would probably play a lot of Jock Jams.
Here’s the perfect soundtrack to eating cereal in your cotton briefs, straddling a hot girl in your boxers, or really just thinking about panties.
Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We need to raise $175k in the next 2 weeks — or we won't make it to Pride. And a world without Autostraddle would be a loss on so many levels. Help us keep this indie queer media boat afloat! Every dollar helps.
Carmen spent six years at Autostraddle, ultimately serving as Straddleverse Director, Feminism Editor and Social Media Co-Director. She is now the Consulting Digital Editor at Ms. and writes regularly for DAME, the Women’s Media Center, the National Women’s History Museum and other prominent feminist platforms; her work has also been published in print and online by outlets like BuzzFeed, Bitch, Bust, CityLab, ElixHER, Feministing, Feminist Formations, GirlBoss, GrokNation, MEL, Mic and SIGNS, and she is a co-founder of Argot Magazine. You can find Carmen on Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr or in the drive-thru line at the nearest In-N-Out.
