Hey you! Yes, you! Did you know you’re perfect and amazing?
This week, the team wrote about their first online communities. (By the way, I am here to say that trying to come out in 2005 by putting a Ditty Bops song on your MySpace page but never referencing any other gay thing in any way does not, in fact, work.)
Alaina showed us how to flag. Or maybe just wear a bandana. Or a little bit of both?
This was SO GOOD: You Need Help: You Want to Have Sex But Also Sex Is a Lot Wow So Complicated.

WELCOME TO COMMENTING ABBIE! Will I see you at camp?
YES YOU WILL I CAN’T WAIT TO MEET YOU!!!!!!
I did not make it, but I’m consoled by the fact that my arch-nemesis did not either. I will get you, Carmen SanDiego!
You’d have to find me first!
THE DITTY BOPS!!!
I also hung a quote from a Ditty Bops song in my apartment, and when someone asked me what it meant, I panicked and said I didn’t know???
But which song did you choose for MySpace??
