Sarah’s Team Pick: James Van Der Memes

Attention, there is now a website devoted solely to gifs of James Van Der Beek emoting.

Like this, but more!

James Van Der Memes is part of Vanderweek on Funny or Die, which is this week, because Monday was the 10-year anniversary of Dawson Crying gif, so you have a lot of things to look forward to now. Also Rachel and I will have plenty of feelings gif ammo the next time we do a post together.

Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. And support from readers like you keeps the majority of our site free for everyone. Still, 99.9% of our readers do not support. Autostraddle is fundraising right now to keep our site funded through January 2022. Will you join our community of readers in helping to keep us around?

  1. I can’t stand Dawson. When I watched The Rules of Attraction I was so surprised to see James VDB there. Kept thinking how inappropriate it was to have Dawson in it.

    The other guy was okay though. The one who played the gay boy in Cruel Intentions and slept with the football guy.
