OMG Autostraddle exploded with comments this past week! Everybody and their homophobic neighbor had feelings to share during our Maine & Washington Gay Marriage Election Day “Live-Blog”! (We may have lost some civil rights, but we totally came out on top in terms of OH SNAP! comments.) While so many of you were heartfelt, and poignant, and amazing, and we love you… we’d like to bring a little levity this Friday, since we’re all still reeling from the election results (and the World Series).
There were many joyous things worth celebrating this week, like the helpful lesbian hints/humor offered in How To Pick Up Chicks: A Lesbian Guide to Getting Girl-on-Girl Action, and the lucky Autostraddlers named in Tegan & Sara ‘Sainthood’ Winners Announced! (Even those who didn’t win can appreciate the adorable announcement video by Intern Hot Laura.) This was also The Week The World Discovered the Awesomeness of Gay Halloween, and I finally got to reveal a girlcrush I’ve held onto for 10 years. You take the good; you take the bad; you take them both, and there you have… this week’s Commenter Awards.
Your Life Is Now Complete Award goes to nosidam on Autostraddle Reader Rewards: Hey Did You See That Comment Friday!: “I feel like my life will be complete when a comment on the “comment friday” post becomes one of the chosen comments for the next week.”
