Man, the anger directed at Autostraddle for putting A+ content on Facebook is insane. Yes, it’s disappointing to click on a link and realize you can’t read it. I don’t have A+, so I get it. But I enjoy Autostraddle and want to support them in anyway I can. If I can’t afford to get A+ I can at least tolerate occasional inconvenience and very mild frustration so AS can continue to bring me kickass content and compensate the people who provide it.
Just wanted to re-blog this to say thanks!

Just doubling-down on our breastfeeding stance, aren’t we? – Fiona Staples
Some stores won’t even rack the first volume because the breast-feeding is controversial, but…fuck them. – Brian K. Vaughan
Just fabulous, really. <3
