Some Things: Blah-loween

Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. We will never put our site behind a paywall because we know how important it is to keep Autostraddle free. But that means we rely on the support of our A+ Members. Still, 99.9% of our readers are not members. A+ membership starts at just $4/month. If you’re able to, will you join A+ and keep Autostraddle here and working for everyone?

Cameron is an illustrator hailing from Ohio. When she’s not drawing, she’s probably very, very quietly having loud thoughts about: queer things, her eventual shop, what to watch next on Netflix, food, names for her future pets, and tumblr.

Cameron has written 76 articles for us.


  1. :)

    It mind-boggling (and tiresome and exhausting) how quickly and vehemently people who see no problem with racism get offended at the idea of anything disparaging white (and/or straight) people.

  2. I feel the opposite! I usually don’t get into Halloween but this year I am feeling the extreme need to be someone/thing else for a night. Something that doesn’t have to worry about politics or rights being taken away, like a dinosaur or a fictional witch.

    Also, I’m thankful for queer-only Halloween parties. Not that our community is without those problems, but the likelihood of seeing a racist Halloween costume is much lower.

  3. This is effin’ brilliant !
    I nearly choked on a bite of my “by-my-own-hand”-picked apple. I’m so glad to see my feels for Halloween expressed so perfectly.
