Not included in the link round up, but I guess Fox News hired Caitlyn Jenner as a correspondent today? And the White House had perennial Autostraddle favorite Amy Schneider over for Trans Day of Visibility. I am both incredibly happy For Amy and wish the Biden administration would do more than lip service and publicity stunts when it comes to the anti-trans laws sweeping the nation (and yes, obviously his administration does more than the alternative, but we can have higher standards).

JoJo Siwa Reveals New Relationship: ‘I’m Very, Very, Very Happy’: In a podcast interview for Rachel Uncensored released on Wednesday, JoJo announced that “I am not single and I don’t want to mengle. No, I’m a loyal lady.” Later in that same interview, she noted, “I went around the block. I did, and I tried a lot, and I learned a lot and I’m very, very, very happy where I am now.” Does this mean JoJo Siwa got back together with her ex Kylie Pew? Listen I don’t know, but I’ve been told JoJo-saga watchers on our staff that passionate fans on TIkTok believe so?!?
Speaking of happy (the theme of today!), very happy for you Trinity!

Admittedly, I don’t know enough to know enough, but I had a strong (and mostly, angry) reaction to this? Which makes me want to learn more, so that I can be more clear in my own position: The Left’s Climate Playbook Is Already Outdated. “Russia and inflation are pushing America into a new climate era.”
And One More Thing…
