Hey there hi there ho there, campers! Did you have an American Girl doll? I had Samantha, and while I’d love to argue that she was gay, I get more of a Straight Ally President of the GSA Who Will Kiss One (1) Girl in College vibe from her. She sure did have great bangs, though!
This week, Shelli watched Dickinson, and she has HAD it with Sue.
Kayla thinks you need more books about chaotic queers in your life, and she is not! Wrong!
Are you an A+ member yet? There’s no time like the present, because on Sunday, 1/16, there’s going to be an A+ Discord Yellowjackets watch-along!
This anonymous review of the Snail Vibe made me LOL.
Can you flirt without feeling — or being seen as — predatory? A thousand times yes!
Ok, who had Aisha Dee from The Bold Type looking pretttttty queer on her Instagram on their big gay Bingo card?
Evan Rachel Wood Bisexual, as I will always know her since first day I read Autostraddle in 2015, is always a welcome addition to No Filter!
This is perfect in every way, no notes: Which Historical Lesbian Bars Would American Girl Dolls Have Visited?
And finally, tipping stingily? That’s a red flag.
And then there were your comments!

DAMN! The comments on fire this week.
And thank you QG! I’ve been lucky enough to win some comment awards over my many years of commenting here and I don’t think I’ve ever been as touched to get one as I am by this one (maybe / probably because I wasn’t trying to be funny or wise or anything, just sharing something I’ve been thinking about for awhile). The title is perfect.
Making Magic !
As someone who’s often read as flirty (it’s my eyebrows, I swear) I rejoiced to read your comment and I’m super glad to see you so honoured.
i mean, you’re so right! also Flirting is Something You Do Together sounds like the chapter of a sex education book I’d like to read lol
Feeling even more royal now 👑 Thank you, QG!
I’d like to read that book too!
I wish I could remember where I first came across the idea of flirting as something that you do – I’m pretty sure I read it during one of those BS hullabaloos about how the #MeToo movement was ruining flirting but of course I don’t remember who said it or where I read it but I thought it was so, so true and I keep thinking about it.
