Show me where on the doll Gawker touched you

Some days Crasstalk likes to dress up

Crasstalk was launched in November 2010 by a group of chronic oversharers and other servicey folks who frequent Gawker properties, especially its crosstalk forum. Crasstalk brings together intensely personal stories, news from the fringe, biting commentary and a community for the intelligent. You may have seen our work featured across the web.
