Hi, pals! I feel good about this week! I hope that wherever you are, you have the chance to put your body in some nice, cool water, and feel the sun making freckles on your cheeks. Or, ya know: babble your way gloriously and entirely incomprehensibly through your appearance on national morning television. Whatever makes you happy.
This week, Riese interviewed Hayley Kiyoko!
Al(aina) wrote about butch people, and accidentally about their dad.
Ships ships ships all the ships!

This week we rested and grew strong, but once again we shall meet on the battlefield, Carmen Sandiego.
can i ship kristana/carmen sandiego for your rivalry tension?
I never meant to start a war
You know, I never wanna hurt you
Don’t even know we’re fighting for
Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield…
That Today show thread was sth else.
WHAT WAS EVEN HAPPENING in that video
Oh wait, I actually know the answer to this…..gloriously the only thing that wasn’t happening was men.
Another truly sublime week at Autostraddle. I so love this universe we’re creating.
ME TOO Adèle ME TOOOOO
I thought lnr’s comment was part of the Today thread and so I was nodding along while reading it, thinking this person had taken the purest of truths inside my heart re: Erin’s article and turned it into beautiful, beautiful words….until I got to the toenail part, at which point I was thoroughly confused and very afraid I’d missed a crucial part of Cate and Sarah’s galpalling.
Still hoping for at least a screen shot…
My first comment award! Woo-hoo! Excellent way to end a week. Thanks for the inspiration, Laneia and Bren. And credit and/or blame to my mother, who is even punnier than I am.
I am reading The Price of Salt right now, and I have to say that having seen that Blanchett/Paulson interview is really messing with how Carol is behaving in my head.
