The Comment Awards Are Celebrating Pride and OITNB With Mocktails

Hello swizzle sticks!

Celebrating Pride this weekend? There might just be a ‘straddler meet-up in your area. If not, it isn’t too late to host one!

We’re using Tabby Is The New Cat and fantasizing about a date with Samira Wiley to fill the void after this week’s OITNB bingefest. Drinking and eating these things helps too.

Lego finally has a line of female scientist figures, yay! But sorry gamers, playable female characters in Assassin’s Creed aren’t happening because Ubisoft thinks women are “too difficult to program.” This is the world we live in.

In other news, there’s some new AS merch in the storethese mocktails look delicious and your favorite ABC Family mindfuck, Pretty Little Liars, is back.
