Our article on Taylor Swift vs. Feminism brought so many commenters, they get their own day of awards. It’s a day for miracles! [Also Riese shares some of her favorite ideas about internet commenting. Like, in general.]
Ah, homo-love is in the air – can you feel it? … No? Well, you’ll always have us as your Valentine (and maybe if we’re both still single in 10 years, we could give it a shot, ya know, just for funsies). Forget the Hallmark cards, your Autostraddle Comment Award will keep your warm at night!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Stuffed from Thanksgiving dinner? Sit back, relax, pop open that top pants button, and indulge in some Autostraddle comments. It’s the internet equivalent of apple pie a la mode. Yum yum.
Has “Hey Did You See That Comment Friday?” become Meta? Included these week, several comments specifically chosen by other commenters. In the end, we all win!
Our weekly tribute to how funny and smart all you commenters are! (Except the anti-equality gang from Election Day, no treats for you, go eat some shellfish.)
Our weekly tribute to how funny and smart all you commenters are!
The week’s best comments. Everyone should comment so you can all be winners as much as possible. I think I just spilled water between my “g” key and my “h” key. ANNOUNCEMENTS TOO!
