I Made These For You: Hey! Did You See That Comment Friday

Happy Friday, nerds! I started school this week and boy am I glad to see the weekend. You know what I had to read besides the first chapter of 4 different books? Your comments! It was a good time, so let’s get started.

This week A.J Conroy talked about feminism, and Fit for a Femme showed you just how stylish San Francisco can be. Half the time I’m confused about these tech posts but this title tells me that Star Trek wasn’t gay and you have feelings about it, Laneia worked really hard and reviewed Tao Lin’s latest novel “Richard Yates”, and Corey interviewed Florence and the Machine.

On Listicle Without Commentary: Reactions to a Photograph of Rachel Maddow & Ira Glass:

The Ira Glass & Rachel Maddow Can Do No Wrong Award to J-Elizabeth:
They even go shopping together and buy the same pair of jeans!! This is wonderful!!.

On NSFW Lesbosexy Sunday: Thrill Me, Kill Me, Scissor Me, 69 Me, Kiss Me:

The Lost My Marbles Award to wepa:
My main thought-feeling is I want to watch that South Park episode.
I think my sex drive ran away because it felt bored and neglected. If someone sees it frolicking around let me know. I don’t want it back just yet, but I do need to know it’s safe and happy.

The I Never Want To Know What Penis Fencing Is Award to southpaw: i went to that wikipedia page on tribadism and somehow ended up clicking a page about penis fencing, idk but i hope you guys are ready to take responsibility for my browsing history now

The Is Pink Eye A New STI? Award to multiplecats: i’ve 69′d twice, but both times i was terrified of getting farted on. or of farting. and giving/getting pink eye. and having a staring contest with the stink eye when i’m supposed to be having fun. and that was enough for me.

On Your Friendly Neighborhood Lesbian One-Ups NYT’s “Style Tribes of San Francisco”:

The Award For Looking Cute While On A Date to cosmogonic: These amazingly cute people just made me stop being mad at my closet and start thinking about outfit remixes. THANK YOU AUTOSTRADDLE FOR SAVING ME MONEY I DIDN’T ACTUALLY HAVE TO SPEND. I’ll probably take a girl out to a movie instead or something.

On Top Ten Most Gayest Jobs: A Labor Day Special!:

The Omfg Hot Award to Katy:
I’m working as a carpenter/construction worker. I’m super bad ass. I’ve only been doing it for like 2 1/2 months, but it has made me feel super, super butch. Like today, I cut the sleeves off of my t-shirt and demolished a carport/roof with my sledge hammer.

The They Didn’t Think Of This When They Implemented DADT Award to jog:
i think i have the gayest job in the military. i load missiles and bombs on fighter jets. i work with lube, have my own toolbox and it’s a necessity to wear a tool belt. it’s like they’re asking lesbians to sign up!

On Gay Me Up, Scotty: How Star Trek Failed To Boldly Go There:

The I Think This Might Be Funny But I’ve Never Seen Star Trek Award to Stace, doctormccoy:

I’ll comment as soon as I stop crying.

On Lady Gaga Covers Vogue Hommes Japan in Male Drag, Is Sexier Than Danny Zuko:

The, Award for Best, Grammar and Use, of Apostrophe’s to Rawrosaur:
I, humbly, submit that the only thing that could, be worse than, the misused, and abused, apostrophe, is the overused comma.

On Apparently Everyone Just F*cking Loves Us Now:

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. I actually LOLed at work when I read nosidam’s comment earlier in the week. and again just now.

    I should probably get back to work.

  2. this is significantly more satisfying than any other award i’ve gotten in the past. like, if this were a trophy, it’d be the sort i’d put up in the living room and obnoxiously show off to guests during the holidays. that is how proud i am right now.

    on a side note, the bri/rachel exchange is absolutely brilliant. i keep reading it over and over again and giggling to myself. you all brighten my friday evenings. never change.

      • The 4% was busy at the time, weeping and stuff.

        (100% joking this time. Actually, I just thought that 96 is a good number for the sexually deactivated population, ’cause it’s like 9 and 6 are avoiding any kind of ‘unseemly’ contact or something, no? Also, “nine six” sounds kinda like “no sex” in German, I think, no? I’m really sorry you asked, this answer is very sad, in several ways)

          • I assume you’re being snarky with that “Cool~”. Well done, I like it.

            Also, figures. I usually spend my time thinking about things that already exist. I have to remember that “checking” business.

      • I politely disagree, Emily (member), I always groove on the awards you make for us with your fingertips, names included. However, I suck at cybercomplimenting without feeling strange and creepy so, sometimes, I try to show my appreciation by asking pointless questions.
