Orange is the New Black 210 Recap: The One with All the Flashback Secks

Orange is the New Black 210 Recap: The One with All the Flashback Secks

Hello and welcome to the recap of the tenth episode of season two of Orange is the New Black, the show that lights a bag of Larry on fire and places it on the doorstep of your heart. I’m your special guest recapper this week, and I will try my best to be a great guest star (like Gloria Steinem on The L Word) and not a waste of screentime (like that chick with the blonde dreadlocks from Betty that got fucked in the cruise ship hot tub on The L Word). #NEVERFORGET.

bert-and-ernie-are-gay:


Jenny Schecter was a mess. There’s no denying it. The writing for her character was so outlandishly inconsistent that you never knew which incarnation you were going to get from one season to the next. She was a duplicitous megalomaniac whose self-indulgent, self-destructive antics knew no boundary. But you know what? So is Don Draper. So was Walter White. So was Dexter and Jack Bauer and Greg House and Tony Soprano. But they’re dudes, so that makes them interesting. Jenny Schecter is a lady, so her deal makes her a cunt. […]
I hadn’t realized it the first time I watched: how righteous her fury really was, how deeply neglected were the wounds of her childhood (one of the show’s many enormous failures was never getting Jenny into therapy), how terrified she was of her own potential for creating chaos, and all the million ways she begged and pleaded and cried out for compassion.

Bisexual Awareness Week: We See Each Other, And That’s Something

Bisexual Awareness Week: We See Each Other, And That’s Something

The first ever Bisexual Awareness Week ends today. In the last seven days, groups have released illuminating reports about the bisexual community, bisexuality hashtags have popped up on twitter, and people have hosted and attended events around the U.S. Bi people made connections and shared their stories. Robyn Ochs released a new book on bisexual menthat I can’t wait to read. It’s awesome to see so much activity and learn about all the bisexual people who are doing amazing work.

Facebook Says Goodbye, You Say Ello

Facebook Says Goodbye, You Say Ello

On Monday night I sat in the living room talking with friend and technology writer Taylor Hatmaker about whether she had heard of new anti-Facebook social media platform Ello. She had written days earlier about Facebook’s crackdown on the real name policy and how it disproportionately affects LGBT populations, so I thought she might be interested. We noticed a movement among our friends, the majority of whom are queer, towards this sparse but sleek new invite only social media platform and figured it was worth signing up, you know, just to see.

Grey’s Anatomy Episode 1101 Recap: Just the Gay Parts, Plz.

Grey’s Anatomy Episode 1101 Recap: Just the Gay Parts, Plz.

This is the first recap of the gay parts of the eleventh season of Grey’s Anatomy, aka Shonda Rhimes Night: Act One.

Six full minutes. That’s how long I waited for Callie and Arizona to show up on screen. It’s unacceptable. Let’s cut everyone else out of this show and turn it into their lady-loving telenovela and be done with it. I mean, I love Grey’s Anatomy, but could we at least get an old fashioned spin-off called ‘Lez Practice: Callie and Arizona’ or something?

Gotham Episode 101 Recap: Less Batman, More Lesbians

Gotham Episode 101 Recap: Less Batman, More Lesbians

New series Gotham is Fox’s brightest star and biggest hope for the season. With the fervor surrounding Monday’s premiere, I think the excitement is holding.

DC comic’s iconic Batman stories are well-known. Gothamrecounts the early days of Batman’s childhood, directly following his parents’ death. It’s a dark and moody modern take on the character, and its steampunk cityscapes do create a beautiful backdrop with a surreal quality not often seen in network television. And it’s always fun to hear an origin story, even if it’s basically in the form of Batman: The Beginning-ing. In this case you’ll certainly be introduced to nearly all of Batman’s foes way back when, whether they are also children or already grown, which turns the whole show into a guessing game where the prize is smiling knowingly at your TV whenever you identify a villain.

FRIDAY OPEN THREAD: What Are You Wearing This Evening?

FRIDAY OPEN THREAD: What Are You Wearing This Evening?

Hi, apple pies! Welcome to this week’s Friday Open Thread.

This week I’m catsitting for my ex- (now ex’s) cat, which is transparently an excuse to take a working vacation in an apartment that, unlike mine, has somewhere to sit outside and more than one door. She partially paid me in groceries and booze, which has been really lovely for my productivity, and I get to hang out with some family while I’m in town (I’m definitely bringing my youngest relatives Lumberjanes). So far the cat seems only slightly confused.

About Me

Hi my name is Riese and Autostraddle.com is my website. I made this tumblr in mid-2009 because we just can't get enough internet.

Autostraddle likes queers, photography, pretty girls, peanut butter, wide open minds, lesbians in white t-shirts, a-camp and pure poetry. She has many talents, including jumping & tumbling. She also enjoys words, lesbians and girl-on-girl culture. She is best enjoyed with a balanced breakfast at Autostraddle.

WANNA ASK RIESE A BURNING QUESTION? YOU SURE CAN. I am responsible for everything here, more or less.



Our favorite tumblr is fuck yeah autostraddle

We highly recommend autostraddle captions are funny and camp autostraddle tumblr.

We're also big fans of the less-frequently-updated, but 100% consistently awesome straddle gifs, hotties with autostraddle swag and autostraddle spam.
