The Comment Awards Think Outer Space Is Still Sexy

Holy snowballs, are we really on the cusp of December? There are still cardboard bats hanging in my apartment from Halloween. They’re going to look so cute wearing tiny santa hats.

The seasonably responsible humans among you will probably enjoy these team-curated gift guides for humor, craft, thrift, music and book lovers. Also, don’t forget to order the 2013 Autostraddle Calendar — the $14 pre-order price ends December 1st!

In other happenings, DeAnne Smith suffered a cute cat attack, Gabby dropped some knowledge about holiday breakups and resident butch Kate had all of the feelings. Then Lizz recapped Glee, Carmen interviewed Eileen Myles and Gabrielle talked about queer RAs.

Do you remember where you were when Tegan and Sara released their first video with actual queer content (besides Tegan and Sara)? Also. Also.Also., who doesn’t want to dress like Jenna Lyons or umm, I don’t know, THE GALAXY?

Now let’s starsweep to this week’s comment awards!

    Woop! I would like to thank my parents for making we worryingly independent, my ex who didn’t like this independence so gave me this nickname and ultimately Autostraddle for being consistently relevant to my interests and bequeathing me this honour.
