Rachel Maddow invited Richard Cohen, author of “Coming Out Straight,” to the show. You have to watch it now so we can talk about how AMAZING IT WAS.

A lot of ladies are paving the way to hot geekdom for the rest of us so today we’re serving up a hot first course of sexy nerds with Tina Fey, Rachel Maddow, Felicia Day, Ana Marie Cox & Miranda July.

In honour of NYC pride, I’m hosting a Homosexy Lesbian Top 20 right here! On Autostraddle! Clearly Autowin is a very intellectual and highly cultivated space for intellectual discussions about Virginia Woolf, The Allegory of the Cave, Boy-briefs vs. thongs and sophisticated feminist theory. Auto-Straddle is where I talk crazy about silly things, like Max Sweeney and my 20 most favorite fictional lesbians from (relatively) mainstream pop culture.
