The Comment Awards Are As Hot As The 4th of July

Hello sparklers!

This most patriotic of weeks (at least in Canada and the U.S.) we brought a call for Contributing Editors, 10 unstoppable women and Rachel’s takedown of the SCOTUS ruling on the Hobby Lobby case.

Other topics included surviving summer without air conditioning, fun with tarot cards, scissoring (yes, scissoring) and the not-so-proud “Proud Whopper.”

Read on, beautiful people!

  1. First comment award ever! Woohoo! Along with the roller derby-ing, and the fact that just this evening I made my first ever Tinder date, this has probably been the gayest week ever. Thanks Autostraddle!
