Hi, pals. What do you say to a week like this? I love you! I see you all out there fighting for the good stuff, taking up space, being vocal about your fear and anger, celebrating each other, and I’m just so fucking happy you exist. This Autostraddle family heals me every single day, so thank you, truly, for that. Good? Good.
Also: you’re all hilarious.
