Free Pass (To Name This Whatever I Want) Hey! Did You See That Comment?

Hello! Intern Hot Laura’s computer decided to die this week, so I’m filling in and doing the comment awards. Sometimes it appears like I do the comment awards like last week but that’s really a lie, so. But here I am, for real! Anyways, let’s take a look at what happened this week.

Sarah told us 6 things she loves about her HTC Droid Incredible, we chose 11 lesbian and bisexual reality TV stars we loved before The Real L Word ruined our lives, Nat Garcia modeled through episode 7 of Autonatic and Jess had your weekly music fix.

Then Rachel, Taylor, and Elizabeth gave you the top 11 hottest, gun-totingest women of Sci-fi , Riese recapped episode 105 of The Real L Word , and Becky gave you suggestions of what to wear when it’s really f*cking hot .

In summary:

On My HTC Droid Incredible: 6 Things I Absolutely Love:

The Google Is Scary Award to e: the google integration on my HTC scared me at first. i think my reaction went something like “big brother IS watching!!” and then my great great grandchildren calmly explained to me what was up.

On Open Thread, Open Relationships: 47% of Gay Men Do It, Do You?:

POWER OF THE CLAM ALL CAPS AWARD to giftedpurpose: See, every time i think of open/poly relationships i have visions of that True Life episode with the three gay boys who dated each other and all kinda looked alike. Did you see how that one gay boy pouted throughout the filming?! I don’t ever want to potentially pout like that over/in a relationship.
However, I suppose I’d be singing a different tune if I’d harnessed the power of the clam and girls were just throwing themselves at me. viva la clam!

I Want 3 Sandwiches In My Mouth Award to Sally: I don’t know if this post makes me want to have an open relationship with a cuddle sandwich, or an open sandwich with a cuddle relationship.
I am confused, and hungry.

On Before “The Real L Word” – 11 Lesbian & Bisexual Reality TV Stars We Love:

The Well, It Was No “Blue Crush” Award to kd15: When I first heard about curl girls I was really excited cause I thought it was about curling, but then I saw that it was about surfing and even the thought of girls in bikini’s couldn’t match my excitement for a reality show about curling.

On NSFW Sexy Sunday: Happy Strap-On Day, Lesbians!:

The Church of Autostraddle Award to a bunch of people:

On Lady Gaga Will Protect Little Monsters From Homophobic ‘Hate Addicts’:

Dina Will Quit the Internet if This Doesn’t Get a Comment Award to Sasha Farce: I think James Franco may end up one day on my Exceptions: Men I’d Potentially Sleep With list, and I think that is directly related to the gayer he becomes. If he eventually turned out to be gay and announced it openly, I would literally race to find him with both joy and my pants around my ankles.

On Policing Female Masculinity: Much Ado About Rachel Maddow’s Yearbook Photo:

The Award for Truth to Midgey: I’m glad you mentioned Perez in this, I think he’s the biggest offender because he claims to be for the same things the gay community is for, and I think that’s the biggest gay lie ever. Just because he’s gay doesn’t mean he’s aloud to say homophobic things and get away with it. I stopped reading his junk when I saw him referring to Samantha Ronson as SaMAN.
Rachel Maddow and Samantha Ronson are two strong hot women who happen to be the opposite of what society has brainwashed us to believe is normal and proper for us ladies. And I thank God that they are, because that’s visibility and the David Vitters of the world gonna have to fucking get used to it.

On DADT Repeal: We’re Still Unsure What the F*ck is Happening:

The Tasha and Alice Forever Award to e: this military shit has me so confused, so i think i’ll just re-watch season 5 of the l word. thats the same thing, right?

On Top 11 Hottest, Gun-Totingest Women of Sci-Fi:

The Is It Made of Gold? Award to Kristen: No Leia? WTF. Critical oversight and sci-fi fandom fail. She kicked ass in a gold bikini… a GOLD BIKINI made of GOLD.

On Wanna Write For Us? The Emotional Rewards Are Endless!:

The Once We Wrote An Entire Article About Cookies Award to KayDee, and Alice:

On The Real L Word #105 Recap: Free Pass (To Do What I Want):

The Awww Award to Sally, and wasteunit:

On In Which We Put a Moratorium on Lindsay Lohan Posts:

The Do You Even Go To This School? Award to everyone:


On Where Does the Good Go: A Break Up Open Thread:

The Transformers Award to DC: my ex demanded my PS3 back when we broke up. cos she bought it for me in order to stop my insomniac ass from leaving her in the post-fuck-pre-breakfast stages of the night. she doesn’t even like playstation, “its for retards” (direct quote). anywho, i gave it back. but not before i dismantled it and made it into an angry robot. not the most expensive robot ever crafted but still a hell of a lot more spendy than the one i made from macaroni elbows. now all that i can think is that i really want my fucken robot back.

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. it appears that sasha farce somehow read my sleeping wavelengths. just the other night i had my first. ever. sex dream. about. a guy. EVER. and guess who it was. yep, james effing franco. i feel as special as a straight girl who has just had a sex dream about a hot lady. this is also weird cuz i went to school with him, and even WEIRDER cuz he hit on my girlfriend 3 years ago when we were together but still pretending to be straight to the rest of the world.

    i’m not sure where i was planning to go with this, but…i fully agree with sasha on his bizarre crossover appeal.

    • Damn, I’m oddly jealous. I seem to only manage sex dreams about my teenage neighbour or Jon Lovitz. wtf brain?

      • OMG, JON LOVITZ?! That’s hilarious!! I feel very lucky now to have had several sex dream romps with Maddow:)

        • lol jon lovitz??? i second the hilarity. what is funny is that when i told my gf i had a sex dream she was like **sad face** “which girl was it?” and when i said “james franco” she was all “oh…ok..whatever.” hahaha

      • They want more Mikey. I don’t think they’re going to get much support from Autostraddle readers…

    • The Real L Word spin-off… This is the true story of seven lesbians picked to live in a house, work together, and have their lives taped to find out what happens when people stop being polite and start calling out grammar and spelling errors.

      • I’ve got issues with your use of the Oxford comma in that comment.


        • I have issues in general with the format of The Real World’s opening ramble.

          BUT YES. OUTSIDE.

          • I decided TLRW was a waste of bandwidth, and am attempting to “re-imagine” each episode according to the AS recaps.

            So in the opening ramble, everyone is now witty, scathing and self-deprecating. Sometimes they wear hats too.


          • I always imagine people wearing silly hats. It’s pretty much the only way I can deal with life.


  2. You guys are lucking with your sex dreams. I’m sure you don’t dream of having a fucking penis the size of Glenn Beck’s ego. I would also like to add that it was useless. Couldn’t even get it up. Dangle, dangle, dangle. It was a total fml moment. Worst part, I could still feel it when I woke up….yeah… tmi? I hope so.

    • maybe a little tmi, but at least you didn’t have a sex dream about bob saget, that was super weird…

  3. i got two? yay me this makes up for me only having a male sex dream with one of the guys from nsync. it wasn’t even lance, booo.

  4. I once dreamt that Ant and Dec, two popular British tv presenters who used to present my favourite kids show, kept me as their sex slave. Whenever I tell people they laugh at how ridiculous that is but it was horrible. I couldn’t watch them on tv for a long time.

    • Thank God(-Des and She), someone else said it so I can simply agree without seeming like a creeper. My God, I have mini-crushes on all of you which sort of coalesce lesbo-T1000-style into one huge Autostraddle crush. If I ever met a girl out and about that knew Autostraddle, I’d pretty much either fall in love forever with The One or get a metal sword-hand in the chest for trying to discuss the internet IRL.

      Please don’t use your metal sword-hands on me, girls. :(

  5. I’ve been lurking on this site for a little while. With the glorious creation of Mean Girls comment threads -and an exhilarating observation that the parents of this site appreciate the wonders of Think Geek and Lifehacker, as linked in sidebars-
    plus a general observation that people here appear to have brains AND make me chuckle rather a lot

    I’m now joining to express my appreciation
    and so that next time people are channelling quotes from LiLo winfilms from the good ole’ pre-lockdown days
    I can add my two cents / gift certificates to the Walker Brothers Pancake House

    (and/or participate in the savvy status-quo-bending patriarchy-smashing feminist discourse.

    Can I add that there are many cute people here also?)

    ie. Hello Autostraddle!
