The Comment Awards Are Faster, Higher, Stronger

Good day, medal contenders! With the exceptionally boring Super Bowl over we can now focus our attention on the world’s coldest quadrennial group workout, the Winter Olympics! Aren’t you excited?

This time we get the added horrors of a host country with explicitly anti-gay legislation and dangerous face waterAlso Tatu.

Though I’m still not over the Jamie Salé and David Pelletier scandal, I’ll be using Riese’s painstakingly researched guide to figure skating and Autostraddle’s Sochi Olympics tag to keep up. Beyond that, I will rely on my girlfriend, who has been obsessively reading athlete profiles since November and will not stop talking about the quadruple salchow. So are you going to be watching the Games?

This week DeAnne Smith used science (err, conjecture) to determine your level of internet addiction and Brittani highlighted the top 10 gayest Rihanna videosValentine’s Day, perhaps our craftiest holiday, is coming up and Hansen has you covered in paper hearts!

Also this week, Piers Morgan’s interview with Janet Mock twice-proved that the patriarchy always lives down to expectations. In brighter news, Scotland legalized same-sex marriage and the new website REFUGE Restrooms hopes to point you toward a gender safe bathroom no matter where you are.

    I’m happy to say that I am not addicted to the internet as I’ve spent the better part of the week being absent from it and hanging with family.

    BUT NOW I SEE ALL THE THINGS I MISSED AND I’M OVERWHELMED WITH HOW MUCH CATCHING UP MUST BE DONE! I will never leave the internet again. Ever.
