"I was seven when I fired a rifle for the first time. When the searing hot shell casing exited the gun, it became trapped between my arm and ribcage. I screamed for a minute straight, under the impression that I’d shot myself. My father—the same person who’d kept our family fed with guns— was the person who laughed and called me “chicken.” I think that memory has lingered because that was the definitive moment when I realized that guns—loaded or not, pointed at someone or not—were inherently threatening."

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.
