Boobs! Owls! Money! Estrogen! Comment Awards!

Howdy, lesbos & otherwise identified people! Let’s get right to it, shall we?

This week, we had a bra issue. What, indeed, should you do with these boobs?

We had two new playlists: one to help you sleep, and one that will probably keep you awake. It’s a Nikki Minaj playlist, y’all.

Annika is back with her second article about taking estrogen and losing her heteronormative privilege. Word on the street is that Sebastian will be writing an “opposite” article.

Riese recapped Glee and it was gay and everyone loves Santana, which is basically my mini-recap of Riese’s recap.

Oh yeah, and, we raised $20,000 all thanks to you guys. No big deal, but we fucking love you.

On Republicans For Gay Rights & Other Homosexual News Updates:

The Everyday I’m Gay Award to novastar:
Dear Ruben Diaz,
Sorry about being gay during holy week. Did you know I am also gay on Christmas? It’s because I hate you, and want to offend your sense of morality personally.

My vote is with a Canadian version. And do it in the winter so it’s just a bunch of chicks in sweatpants and wooly sweaters bitching about the weather, getting drunk at hockey games and lying on the chesterfield after they throw their back out shovelling the laneway.
But that’s probs just me…

On Texas Says Trans People Aren’t Real, Definitely Can’t Get Married Or Be Happy Ever:

The Straight History Award to MJ:
What about gay people who, you know, existed and may therefore come up in history.
“We will begin our study of Ancient Civilizations with Greece, where nothing happened at all. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, JENNY, DON’T LOOK AT THE MAP. THE ISLANDS HAVE NAMES THAT MIGHT GIVE YOU IDEAS.
“Greece’s fall began with the Macedonian conquest at the Battle of Chaeronea where – wait, Jesus, the whole army? Were any straight people involved in this? GOT IT! Philip of Macedon was there. He had a son, but we’re not talking about him.
“Moving on, Rome was founded by Romulus. After the Republic was set in place, Gaius Julius Ceaser took power. The Julio-Claudian emperors did nothing. Absolutely nothing.
“Skipping forward to recent history, the 20′s never happened. Seriously. We just went from 1919 to 1930.
“Some years after the 1920′s didn’t happen, Adolf Hitler did some bad things, but we can’t tell you about them because then you might ask *who* he did them to, and we can’t go into too much detail about all of those people.”

On Honestly, What Even Is This “DADT Repeal” If Katie Miller Can’t Get Back In?:

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 100 articles for us.


  1. This page was blocked at my school because of the word “boob.”

    I had to take a bus to the public library during a free period just to make this comment. Also books, or something.

  2. Now that’s all I can think about is BOOBS and BBQ ribs. What a fucking awesome combo.

  3. This is my first comment award. Since I found out they existed I have been craving one. If I were wittier, I’d probably make some melodramatic acceptance speech. Woo!

  4. GUUUUYS! It may be the royal wedding drunkeness talking (what, I had to maintain my British street cred as my mum is British. Anyway,I went to a friend’s at 8am to watch the DVRed coverage and started drinking! woooo! So this may be the mimosas and irish coffee’s talking) but you all are lovely and thanks Emily. I hope all your royal wedding days went well. I was insufferable and pointed out the heternormativeness of practically everything. I don’t know when my friends still put up with me. It may be the more broad drunken tomfoolery/self embarrassment I am apt to engage in.

  5. *WHY not when, I don’t why! I mean I know when, it’s when I’m drunk. Like right now.

  6. Whoever wrote the headline also gets a Comment Award. I’m not sure if they’re as good as when Emily gives them out, but still.

  7. My first standalone comment award! Now I can feel proud with worrying that I’m just riding on the wave of others funniness!

  8. I knew shamelessly exploiting Emily’s Canadianness for long enough would pay off in the form of comment award. AMAZING, FOOLPROOF PLAN IS AMAZING AND FOOLPROOF.

    In an only tangentialy related topic, omg technology is weird, my Blackberry has reception and I can post this comment while also being on a HORSE. So basically, the intertubes are crazy, I am autosaddled, I feel like there’s an Old Spice guy joke I’m not making here and that makes me sad, and yay I won a comment award!!
