Guess what happened this morning? Katina and I walked into our fav internet cafe, Perch, to work on Vp and we bumped into two cute dyke-lets that help run autostraddle. So we sat at the bar ate cheese grits and coffee and talked about the future of lesbianism (from a millennial gen perspective).
Let me introduce you to Kelsey Lisette, their video contributor as well as "elf-scot," and Taylor, official auto-all-star and tech editor.
What is the most important cultural phenom in our community today?
Kelsey: Lady Gaga...
I could have predicted that answer... Ok, so why?
Taylor: I'm over Lady Gaga.
Fine. Let's move on. What's new with autostraddle?
Kelsey: A handful of us were going to move to the Bay Area... we just need a change and need to get out of New York.
Taylor: I just quit my job. I want to tune in, drop out, and drop acid.
Do people drop acid anymore? What kinds of drugs do you kids use these days?
Taylor: Designer drugs
Kelsey: I like home brews.
Taylor: ... or blends.
Who is your biggest queer celeb heart throb?
Taylor: Michelle Tea, because I want to channel early 90's San Fransisco.
Kelsey: Miranda July, biggest fucking heart throb. she makes everything about me explode... inside.
So you guys like 'em older?
Taylor: Hello Mrs Robinson... Can you take me to Cougar Town?
Kelsey: To me everyone is a cougar, cuz I'm just a tiny cub. I'm like a baby sea otter. We love sea otters at autostraddle.
Taylor: I like river otters, they look like John Waters...
What do you think about monogamy, are you kids having a lot of open relationships?
Taylor: That's the only kind we have.
Kelsey: I want to spread rainbow seeds... We need to make more queer people.
What does that mean?
Taylor: We are here and we're queer.
What are your feelings about being on the cutting edge of lesbian media?
Taylor: It makes me feel poor and wish I still had health insurance.
Kelsey: I wish I could go back to being a cheerleader in High School
What are you guys doing for Pride?
Taylor: I'm going to visit my Grandma in Kansas.
Kelsely: I'm probably working. I work as PA (aka "little bitch") for the next season of a highly watched reality series that I can't talk about, which will be airing in the next few months.
Taylor: But we wish we were going to our own autostraddle Pride Party which you guys are all invited to.
