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.
D.C. Buses plastered with anti-gay marriage ads, post-holiday shopping deals, Charlie Sheen gives us an even more serious reason to hate “Two and a Half Men,” ABC Nightline asks why there are so many single black women, Haviland Stillwell interview, best TV moments of 2009, drag queen on the X-mas tree, and some funny Christmas Carol videos!
Hey girls all over the world, how’s your Christmakwanzakah going? Did you tell Grandma about the Girlfriend? Does your Mom like the Susan Boyle CD? Is your closeted cousin doing the “Single Ladies” dance? Tell us your stories! Share your feelings! Open thread open 24/7.
Ready to do some last-minute shopping? Well welcome to the ultimate most LOL-worthy gift guide to totally rock your socks off all around the Christmas tree, with input from the whole gang.
You are all commenting fiends! While I’m sure everyone has carefully read through the SRSLY HUNDREDS of comments posted this week, here are some highlights to refresh your memory.
Here’s our roundup of the biggest, best, and worst events for gay people in 2009.
We’ve read every single one of your comments, and Friday’s results are in! We think the vote is unanimous — Autostraddlers win at life. (Prizes may include: witty banter, street cred, sexual advances, and internet fame.)
Forget every other time you’ve heard the phrase “Best Week Ever” used — this week trumps them all, my friends! Not convinced? Read all of these amazing comments, and you will be.
Autostraddle is SO EXCITANT for our new web-series starring Nat Garcia but we don’t know what to name it! Vote on your favorite name and find out more about Nat & the show … otherwise we’ll have to go with Natostraddle and no one wants that to happen.
