The Comment Awards Are Calling All Commenters

Hello, wildlings and wordsmiths!

In what seemed like the most appropriate encore to the SCOTUS ruling, the U.S. started off the week by winning the lesbian super bowl (thanks Brittani). And did you see that kiss?

We have so many things to talk about. In fact, we want you to tell us all the things because it’s Tell Us Everything Week!  If you need some inspiration just read Riese’s post on internet commenting and call out culture.

In other news, ESPN’s annual body issue is out, Laura made an “Everything is terrible but also ultimately okay” playlist and we have feelings about “Jenny’s Wedding” and the Magic Wand.

Speaking of feelings, the commenting blitz means there will be loads of comment awards this week and next let’s get right into it!

  1. I made the first reply to lomy’s Spirit Award-winning comment, does that make me a first runner-up? Or am I just trying way to hard to ride their coattails?

    This should probably be taken as a small but meaningful example of just how much I enjoy AS in general and the comment awards in particular.

    ^^Comment I would normally delete but am going to post in the spirit of TEU week!

  2. Goodness gracious, thank you for another award. I really love seeing the crazy-high comment numbers on everything this week, it’s so heartwarming. I don’t care about winning prizes but it is just so uplifting and encouraging to see all these new people and quieter voices getting involved. It’s also a little bit overwhelming, I usually read every single comment but now there are constantly new ones being added, I don’t want to miss anyone’s brilliant words! Basically y’all are great and this is the best community and yay and stuff. Okay I had a rough day and have been drinking extensively and should probably hop off the comment train for the evening. Thank you to everyone for being great!

  3. It’s awesome that Autostraddle highlights comments like this. I think it’s one of the things that brings us together as a community: if you missed this hilarious or poignant thing, never fear, because it’ll be highlighted at the end of the week.

  4. y’all, bruce is incommunicado in the wilderness for like 2.5 weeks right now (because Of Course he is), but he is gonna be really excited about this award when he gets back. i’m pretty lucky he’s my dad.

  5. I’ve been reading AS for more than a year and I finally read one of these articles and, oh, I get it! I just really doubted it could be that funny? But I shouldn’t have doubted, because even articles about t.v. shows I’ve never seen or celebrities I’ve never heard of are funny. Now I’m bummed that I’ve been missing out.
