I don’t. But it was an unparalleled writing experience to see that white space on the ballot and put in your own name. I’d advise anyone to try it and then think about what it means. To the extent that people joke about my campaign and about lesbians in general I think an enormous amount of repression is surrounding what a woman might want.

I often think about what my girlfriend said (which is on a napkin on my bulletin board over my desk) when she wondered “how palatable will women have to make themselves as artists in this depression.”

It’s a depression the size of the world and we fill it by thinking about it I believe.

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.
