Hi there, cats and kittens! Welcome to Friday. We made it through the wilderness somehow!
This week, Audrey did some research on body hair, while Cameron left ghosts behind.
Casey’s got some queer urban fantasy books that we might want to read.
Beth introduced us to Klara Vanova, the owner of a gender-neutral barbershop I really wish I could go to.
Going to Pride? There’s an Autostraddle Meet-Up for that!
In Queer Folklore, Siobhan brought us the asexuals of Ancient Greece.
Thank you, Laura, for this guide to lube!
And in the latest installment of one of my very favorite series, Laneia brought us all of your beautiful faces doing what you do — this time at work.
And then there were your comments!

…But I still don’t know how I feel about mommi
Is Holly Marie Combs mommi? I want there to be a place where I can submit people and Erin or Kayla can tell me if someone is mommi or not until I fully understand.
Also I saw Heather added Jane Fonda to the mix, but is she more grandmommi? So many questions.
I DON’T EVEN KNOW VALERIE
Has the world passed us by?
So yeah, good call. Formal request for The Momminator, a Tumblr where you ask if people are mommi and Erin and Kayla weigh in.
I’d watch that movie tbh
I need somebody to explain to me why Bette is a daddy but Carol is a mommi. What is the differentiating characteristic?
Also what about someone like Rachel Maddow? Would she be, like, a mommi boi?
Valerie – same
Chandra – SAME
Do I NOT get it because maybe I am a mommi and therefore I am not able of seeing the mommi-ness?
Even though I am childfree 4 lyfe
Same to all of the above
well, I at least solved the Jane Fonda question:
ALSO I JUST UPLOADED A PICTURE ON THE FIRST TRY I BELIEVE THIS IS CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION
@punkystarshine YOU DID SO GOOD WELL DONE
Honorary picture-comment award for Valerie Anne!
just chiming in to say that rachel maddow is unequivocally, 100% daddy. the daddiest.
I think we need a Cosmo-style quiz to help determine how mommi we, or anyone else, might be. Of course, the true revelation may come from whether a mommi would ever do Cosmo quiz.
My hazarded guess would be that a mommi would be outwardly dismissive of such frippery, but secretly enjoy doing them while getting their highlights touched up, but really I’d need to defer to an expert on the matter.
Do mommis still enjoy Cosmo quizzes or have they dismissed them to move over to Teen Vogue, magazine leader of the resistance?
I assume yes??
I also don’t understand mommi.
I still don’t get it and I feel like Grandpa Simpson
“I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I’m with isn’t it, and what’s it seems weird and scary to me, and it’ll happen to you, too.”
my next tattoo
We should start OlderStraddle
Motto: You Do You, I’m going for a nap
If Klub Yurt is part of Olderstraddle I’m so down
Yes it is. That’s the reason Klub Yurt happens in the afternoon/early evening.
I’m in (and old)
I don’t even know where to respond, but I don’t get it either and I don’t even know how I’d fit.
Is there a gender neutral momdy, perchance?
Also, may I join the OlderStraddlers?
I’d volunteer to be responsible for spiking the hot chocolates as we’re sitting around the fire in our rocking chairs embroidering jeans vests.
Oh also great comments this week everyone :-D
The “Trudy, Madly, Deeply Award” made me laugh harder than all the comments
Someone on twitter posted the best Trudy gif. I really wanted to give it a comment award but it wasn’t on Autostraddlllllle
Link please ?
Funny enough, the day I posted that weather comment it was in fact clear with no rain (or male tears), and later in the week we had a thunderstorm. Maybe I should think about a career change
first Mommis and now lil baby tops? how many new kinds of crushes do y’all want me to have?
all of them
when do we get comment awards for comments posted on the comment awards? :’D
It’s been known to happen
hahaha! TRULY MADLY DEEPLY!
Ha! I totally wasn’t expecting that. Thank you! I’ll be sure to let my friend know!
I mean, it’s a great test!
He’s very pleased with himself. He got to co-author a featured comment on AS for his birthday. XD
