Obviously Hey! Did You See That Comment? Friday is a weekly occurrence and not an annual one, but I’m feeling very pomp and circumstance this week and it just felt right.
This week, Lady Gaga won everything ever but we’re still going to give you awards anyway. ‘Cause you’re just SO FUNNY!
It’s Friday! Finally! So much happened this week; we had a birthday, talked to Marisa Meltzer, and went to prom with girls. There were some haters out on the interwebs this week, but y’all beat them up them with your typical funny and smarty pants selves so do yourselves a favor and go watch the new video for ‘Telephone.’
One year ago today, Jenny “died” and Autostraddle was born.
This was a big week, with the second episode of In Your Box Office and interviews with both NOH8 frontman Adam Bouska and Dani Campbell and worldwide gender panic. You said funny things and we want you to know that we were paying attention.
The comment awards are back and we’ve got two weeks full of your sharp cheddar/wit that we’re ready to throw back at you because we love you more than cheese!
Our article on Taylor Swift vs. Feminism brought so many commenters, they get their own day of awards. It’s a day for miracles! [Also Riese shares some of her favorite ideas about internet commenting. Like, in general.]
Ah, homo-love is in the air – can you feel it? … No? Well, you’ll always have us as your Valentine (and maybe if we’re both still single in 10 years, we could give it a shot, ya know, just for funsies). Forget the Hallmark cards, your Autostraddle Comment Award will keep your warm at night!
This week had some confusing moments (Really Grammy Awards, Really?) but the Autostraddle Comment Awards are here to ease your mind. And guess what? TAYLOR SWIFT DIDN’T AUTO-WIN ONE! Instead of some golden statue, you get fame and notoriety… or at least, the respect of your peers.
You’ve all been so patient through 2 hours of Autostraddle downtime, the constant standing applause during Obama’s State of the Union address, and days & days of Prop 8 trial testimony. Well, you can finally rest now – it’s Hey Did You See That Comment Friday! The court hereby orders that you accept these Autostraddle comment awards, effective immediately.
The world is crazy, but Autostraddlers are awesome! We’d give you wedding rings if we could, but until this legal madness ends in justice (could be a while…) we’re giving you comment awards. No proposition will ever take those away!
OMG YOU ARE SO FUNNY and spot-on in the comments and although we cannot award all of you b/c there’s so little time and so much to do, we’re definitely awarding SOME of you. And it’s pretty spectacular, not gonna lie.
Are you the most talented, innovative, complicated, dynamic, forward-thinking, self-starting, multi-tasking, multi-jointed human being EVER? Then you should work for Autostraddle.
There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.
In 2009 Autostraddle was born. Just in time for the apocalypse! In this letter from the editor, you’ll find out what happened, what’s happening next, and how special everyone is.
We’re a full week into 2010 and you guys are just as spectacular as ever. Grab your New Jersey no-on-gay-marriage drink of sadness, take a seat, and get ready for some cheer in the shape of this week’s best comments.
2009 was hands down totes The Year of the Weirdo. What does 2010 hold for our top 20 Autostraddle Icons? WHO WON?
You kids! You’re so f*cking clever. Let’s take a moment to appreciate you. Stop scissoring and come over to the computer, tiger; we’re 4 days late on this one, but we are SOOOO not a dollar short!
“Midlife lesbians” are apparently having a heyday — again! Queer activists are forcing Eminem to hate gay people a little less than he did before, Angelina kind of sort of maybe might have an open relationship, queer girls in sports lost a great advocate, and the state of religion in America. Also, pictures of Lady Gaga!
What, you didn’t think the gift giving was over, did you? We spent the holiday week cozied-up and reading through every one of your (many, many!) awesome comments. You’ve been so good this year; we wish we could wrap you all in a big family group hug! But due to the physical limitations of the internet, we’re giving out comment awards instead.
