Hi friends! You know that phrase ‘this is why we can’t have nice things?’ I know you love to say it. I love to say it too. But you know what? I call bullshit. At least for you, and for me, and for our friends and our lovers and our Autostraddle family: I’m putting my foot down. We CAN have nice things. We (you!) deserve safety and shelter, and good books, and good sex, and all sorts of different kinds of love. We (you!) deserve friends, and crushes, and nudes on your phone, and cookies in your oven, and a fire in your hearth. WE CAN HAVE NICE THINGS. Go forth. Contain and deserve multitudes. I dare you.
