The Comment Awards Are Coming Out Swinging

Hi ho, marigolds!

This week we learned how to dress up a pet for Halloween, that drinking a snake bite is better than getting one and how to be a mom and stay punk.

Then we spent a day in the life of Brittani Nichols (followed by a day of Brittani tweeting for Tig Notaro), learned how to deal with that ex, get started with tarot and how look like you weren’t just crying.

In other news, Hillary made cameo on SNL, California passed a bunch of laws that include added protections for women, gays and trans people and Riese released the first batch of findings from the Autostraddle survey of 29+ year olds.

  1. I love that Britt’s mom waited years to make that joke…how long was she waiting for Britt to come out? :-)

    • My mom and dad actually got in a fight about who called my queerness first, but Carol won when she claimed I was queer at 3. Classic Carol, always winning
