The Comment Awards Are Considering A Throuple

Hello! We are two whole Fridays into January and that’s weird. It’s weird! What is time? Why is this Christmas tree still in my living room? What am I supposed to feed myself and why is work a place I have to go? January is rough, my friends. I hope you’re faring better than I am! 😂

This week, Generation Q dealt with the aftermath of Alice, Gigi and Nat’s threesome, the deep, deep mess Finley made of the whole thing with Rebecca, and Bette, Alice, and Shane made some very disorganized cold calls for Bette’s campaign!

I LOVED this: Six Songs You Love That Are Actually About Being Trans.

Heather wrote about Ellen, Kate Mackinnon, how far we’ve come, and how far we’ve yet to go.

Drew went to see Greta Gerwig’s Little Women, and found room in it for queerness, but also for sadness – a first for adaptations of the book.

Claire drew this beautiful piece about their grandmother.

Maddy wrote about the queers of Catfish.

Writer Elizabeth Wurtzel died this week; Riese had this remembrance.

I love this series: Basic Butch goes to the airport!

Some relationship myths are worth busting.

And then there were your comments!

On The L Word Generation Q Episode 105: Labels:

The Kitchen Eyes Award to Chenell:

The soft look in Gigi’s eyes in the kitchen scene…I’d give her whatever she wanted.

The Pretty Big Liars: Generation Q Award to Stef:

i love big little lies!!!!

And the iPhone 5s Award to Lindsay:

The most realistic part of this show so far is the generation of Finley’s iPhone.

On Six Songs You Love That Are Actually About Being Trans:

The Second Act Award to Robin and Chandra:

I came to the realization I was nonbinary while listening to Half Jack by the Dresden Dolls. And, extremely on-the-nose, but Coming Back As A Man by Caro Emerald / Chandra: I’ve had visions for years of that Dresden Dolls track being used in a super queer subversive nonbinary burlesque act :D

On Kate McKinnon’s Golden Globes Tribute to Ellen Highlights How Far We’ve Come and How Far We Have Left to Go:

The Holtzmann’d Award to Michigaynder:

This makes me emotional, because in a lot of ways, Kate was my Ellen. Seeing her be so openly herself, even if it wasn’t in explicitly gay roles, made me feel okay about being myself. I questioned my sexuality for a long time. Then I saw Ghostbusters. I walked out knowing that I was gay. It wasn’t even just how attractive she was in the film, although that didn’t hurt, it was the swagger and the confidence that she had in taking on such a androgynous character. I felt seen, and more than anything, I felt like I had the right to be myself. Thanks Kate.

On Jenn Shapland Names What Needs Naming in “My Autobiography of Carson McCullers”:

The Members Only Jacket Award to

A wonderfully written and considered review and now I can’t wait to read the book. I got my MA at UT and am thinking about how this was there at the Harry Ransom Center the whole time. I’m looking forward to reading more of your reviews–it actually was the tipping point to my finally signing up as a member.

On Pop Culture Fix: “Gentleman Jack” Is On Its Way Back And Also All 8 Gay CW Shows:

The I Would Walk Award to Carmen SanDiego and AnnieStinkle:

Making my way downtown walking fast Faces pass and I’m home bound Staring blankly ahead just making my way Making a way through the crowd And I yell at men And I miss Ann And now I wonder…

And on Classic TV From the Bush Era That You Can Stream to Survive Trump This Year:

The We Know All The Steps Award to Lex:

Firefly has plenty of flaws but Zöe Washburne and her dear little husband Wash are not one of them. Short man good with his hands, can talk for forever about how awesome his wife is and how blessed he is to be loved by a warrior woman. You would not find them featured in Straight People Watch.
