"Even though I now believe that bootstraps are about as real as Thumbelina, I still struggle to ask for help and accept help because it once implied weakness. How do I, as a progressive Southerner, even begin to deconstruct this myth while acknowledging that my own unhealthy work ethic is a product of that very same environment? After all, I learned about bootstraps before I learned about strap-ons. Much to my chagrin, my Southern upbringing impacted my politics before my queerness did."

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
