The Comment Awards Are a Soft Safe Space to Land


Hi, muppets! I know this week has been hard, but I’m so very glad we have each other. Did I ever tell you that my dog does trust falls backwards on my bed so that I’ll rub his tummy? There is so much good in the world, every day. Also, there is ice cream.

This week we met Autostraddle’s new fashion and beauty editor, Nora!

Cami wrote about how Twitter is the new black church.

Carolyn picked up The Toast’s mantle for this journey into the world of stock BDSM photography.

Valerie Anne wrote a recap of the best Supergirl episode ever, and then Chyler Leigh quote tweeted it!!! What a day, what a day.

Molly danced for the resistance. Dance forever, all of you.

Erin’s a playwright now.

And then there were your comments!

On Enjoy This 10 Second Play About Lesbians:

The 2 Fast 2 Furious Award to Sally:

Does this mean there is at least one hatless and topless lesbian somewhere in the house?

On Anonymous Sex Toy Review: The Bück Dich:

The Three’s Company Award to amidola:

I wish they would make a TV show centering around this circle of friends. Everyone sounds absolutely awesome. It could be called “Bück Dich!”

On “Below Her Mouthwp_postsPredicts Six More Weeks of Shane:

The Below Her Beak Award to dufrau:

When I watched the trailer for this, Budgie was taking a nap on my shoulder. She woke up and turned herself around so she was no longer facing the screen and then went back to sleep. It was a strong statement and one I think I agree with.

On No Filter: Samira Wiley Remains An Adorable Life Ruiner:

The 4H Award to Chloe:

I’d rather focus on the tender gaze (initially misspelled by me as “gays”, ha!) of Stephanie Beatriz. Damn.

On Satellite of Love: Queer Horoscopes for May 2017:

The April Flowers Award to LiamTheChampion:

On 55 Lesbians Having A Bad Time In BDSM Stock Photos:

The Osteopath’s Next Top Model Award to Chandra:

“This is why my chiropractor is on speed dial”

On “Supergirlwp_postsEpisode 219 Recap: Hope Floats:

The Captain Underpants Award to emmapet:

ALSO OH MY GOD HER GAY ASS UNDERPANTS. After 2×06 we were all like, okay, when is a baby gay no longer too shiny to date, you know? How will we know when a person is a full grown gay? UH I GUESS WHEN THOSE ARE THEIR UNDERPANTS, CONGRATULATIONS ALEXANDRA ON YOUR GAY BAT MITZVAH

The Double Entendre Award to Heather D:

“goes to visit Lena through her Supergirl doorwp_postsjust to be clear, this is NOT a euphemism?

  1. I want to thank Queer Girl, on behalf of all procrastinators, for the commitment she must have to the comment sections since it was technically already Friday (in my state) when I made that comment. :)

  2. Thank you kindly. I should point out that Erin eventually only confirmed there were no shirtless lesbians in the house, so it’s very likely there was a nest of writhing, hatless lesbians in the vicinity, probably in the woodwork.

  3. Oh wow, I got a comment award for a sex toy review. That’s like watching a good movie at a porn festival and not being able to tell anyone about it.
    Only better.
    P.S.: This could totally work as a web series. Every episode could focus on one of the friends’ ordinary daily lives with the “Bück Dich” circle framing the beginning and end.
