The Comment Awards Are Into Your Grandma

A puppy peeking over a laptop saying "hey, did you see that comment?"

Hi bumblebees! I’m not at A-Camp experiencing the 13 stages of Klub Deer or partying like Dionysus but I am super excited to bring you this week’s comment awards! I understand the traditional format is to talk about your dog so words words words.

This week, Riese recommended 12 lesbian resorts to visit this summer if you have a time machine. Make some tea or bring some rad inclusive games or essays and memoirs from the future to help you make friends as an adult. Or get cryptic with internet haiku. And remember not to stare.

Neesha wrote about how queer and trans people of color resist gentrification and displacement.

Courtney wrote about what happens when the person you send nudes to doesn’t sext you back.

Heather took one for the team by sitting through Netflix’s Anne of Green Gables, which cannot be saved.

In fat fashion, crop tops are timeless.

Everyone got or turned out to be gay married, and by everyone, I mean Diana Taurasi and former WNBA teammate Penny Taylor and Abby Wambach and Glennon Doyle Melton. (Not all to each other though.) (Not yet all to each other?!?) (If that were to happen they could read through the now-ended Poly Pocket series archives I’m just saying.)

Brittani Nichols is a babe and made you a song for when it’s not your problem.

And then you left some killer comments!

The Can’t Tell If You’re Bragging Or Not Award to Queer Girl:

On “No Filter: This Is Not Brittani Nichols’ Problem“:

The I Can Only Assume This Made Stef’s Day Award to Cleo:

Comment reads: "OMFG. This is a masterful vapid fluff post. The content is ooooh sooo gooooooood and the order packs an emotional punch. I did not expect to go from humor to joy to lust and back to to joy in such as short space of time."

On “22 Easy Steps to Rethinking Your Whole Relationship Through Late-Night Nudes“:

The What Noooo I Have No Idea What You’re Talking About Or What The Insides Of Your Phones Look Like, Promise, Award to verycoolname:

Comment reads: "As per usual, Autostraddle advice/analysis comes at the perfect time for this insecure, vulnerable, consensual nude-sending young woman. This could mean one of two things: 1) Every Autostraddle writer has access to my texts and camera roll. 2) Many parts of the queer experience are universal."
