If I Gave You A Comment Award Would It Still Be The Same?

Hey, what’s up. Can someone get me a coffee. Thanks, love you! Here’s what happened this week:

In film, Pariah is getting good reviews all around and Autostraddle had the exclusive premiere of “Sara”, which has nothing to do with Sara Quin, but is fantastic, nonetheless. conservatives hate Skins for the 875 reasons that we like it and one of those is Tea, the lesbian. BCW recapped the State of the Union address and Something might be happening with healthcare in the U.S. but we don’t know what it is yet. Julie and Brandy went to the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival ages ago and have found the lost footage, Get Baked is making soup, and nothing from Walgreen’s works, ever.

On “Brittana Is On. Brittana Was Always On.”:

The “Lesbian” Award to Triple D, doctormccoy:

On Pink Thinks You’re Fucking Perfect & Amanda Palmer Loves Australia:

The Life Story Award to novastar:
I love Amanda Palmer. I really want her and Neil Gaiman to adopt me. Sadly, I probably wouldn’t be able to last very long before going all Oedipus up in there what with the murdering Neil / marrying Amanda.
But then I would feel bad and have to gouge out my eyes to deal. And even if I learned braille, there would be no new Neil Gaiman books, so really why even bother.

On I Sold My Arms and Legs to Walgreens and All I Got Was This Stupid Hair Serum:

Cocoa butter sticks are better than chapstick, except once I got bored and ate half of it because it smelled like chocolate

The 1987 Called Award to radiogirl:
Also, do you ever get “is that a perm or is it real?”
Um, I don’t know…is it 1987? Do I look 75? No? Okay, proooobably not a perm.

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. ZOMFG! My little lesbian/genderqueer/whatever-I-am existence is now complete! This feeling is almost like to discovering the meaning of life..wait…getting an award on Autostraddle IS the meaning of life.

  2. Oh hey, I got an awardddd! :D

  3. YES! <3 Thank you!!!
    It is so weirdly fitting that my first comment award has something to do with both fight club and porn.

  4. Hm, now I know better than to go a day without getting on Autostraddle. I miss things like comment awards!
