Boo! It’s Hey Did You See That Comment Friday!

Do you have Halloween plans? I don’t. Is that relevant to anything? No. Another irrelevant thing I want to tell you: I made banana bread tonight IT’S SO GOOD NOM NOM. Sorry, my last therapy session was like 3 weeks ago, I need to get these things off my chest. SORRY THE COMMENT AWARDS SUCK THIS WEEK, I’M TIRED I JUST WANT TO WATCH A MOVIE

ANYWAYS —

Taylor and Kelsey continue their journey through Texas, this article includes the topic of nude beaches if that interests anyone, Glennisha gives you a list of some out and proud female emcees, and Lily is back with College Lesbianage #10.

Also in case no one noticed there were over 900 comments on the how to meet other queers article. I read about ~150 of them when the article was published, I think you understand if I didn’t read them all last night and give out awards to the best email addresses. BUT I encourage you to command+F [your city] and see if you can meet some other queers! If it all looks too overwhelming, lovely commenter Tiara the Merch Girl set up a page where you can browse commenters by location.


On President Obama Says It Gets Better:

The Being President of the United States Is Not As Great As It Seems to shannon:
I’m confused. His tie is not perfectly dimpled. I thought that was the primary motivation/perk of becoming president: you will have a team of people to make sure your tie is always perfectly dimpled.

On Facebook’s Gay-Targeted Ads are Confusing, Patriarchal, Pointless:

The Democratic Party of Gaga Award to Katie:
I have my political views listed as “equality and gagaism” and i get tons of ads about “i love healthcare” “waiting for superman” “obama this and that” etc. so i guess lady gaga is a legit part of the democratic party now??

On Skins USA Trailor Debuts, Suggests Exact Replication of Original (But With a Lesbian!):

On Gay Adoption: It’s A Thing. Coming Soon To A State Near You, We Hope:

The Joys of Parenting Award to Vikki:
Yay for queer adoption! Everyone should have the right to be financially strapped, exhausted and neurotically worried about little people over whom you realistically have no control!

On The Bishop’s Manifesto: “I will no longer debate the issue of homosexuality in the church with anyone.”:

Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.

Emily has written 124 articles for us.

  1. Emily, there is an ENTIRE ARTICLE about Harry Potter in the works right now. AS WE SPEAK.

    You will have so many Harry Potter related comments (I mean, I hope), that you just won’t know what to do with yourself.

  2. A whole article related to harry potter! Did I hear correctly? I think I might die.

  4. Emily two nights ago my girlfriend and I went to bed and she started laughing and said “oh dear” and it turned out that accidentally she was wearing her Hogwarts tshirt with the school crest and I was wearing the Muggle tshirt I begged/bought from the staff at Waterstones at the midnight release of Deathly Hallows. She was like “oh no. this is happening.” We are so cool.

    Harry Potter 4everrrrrr
