The Comment Awards Are Crying Over Lesbian Birds


Hi, friends! How many times did hot queer people kill you just by being their amazing selves this week? It was at least five for me.

This week, Siobhan helped us get ready for Beltane!

Shibari 101. I’ll be in my bunk.


Maddy’s going to help us make a meme!

From Alyssa: It’s not always nice to be “nice.”

Need some masturbation tips? Carolyn’s got you covered!

Straight People Watch is back, and you are not going to want to miss this one.

And then there were your comments!

On No Filter: Samira Wiley’s Smile Is Here to Save You From the Handmaid’s Tale Season Two:

The Death Becomes Her Award to Julia and Kristana:

Julia: I swear Hayley Kiyoko is trying to kill me / Kristana: “Demi Lovato just wants you to relax.wp_postsShe’s going about it the wrong way.

On Lesbians in the Wild: Do These Birds Look Gay Trivia Quiz:

The Must Love Birds Award to Beth:

Wait… did I just tear up at pictures of wlw birds???

On “Supergirlwp_postsEpisode 316 Recap: Girl Gangs Galore:

The Theory of Elasticity Award to Brakeb:

I was calling it the Ponytail of Science. But a braid is an acceptable substitute. Maybe it could be the Ponytail of Research and the Braid of Applied Science. Hair aside, I really liked the Lena/Sam stuff, and also that Lena was being an actor and driver in the storyline or its resolution, when too often she’s seemed to be relegated to reaction (this is not a criticism of Lena who does all she can to be a continuing force for good).

On “Riverdalewp_postsEpisode 220 Recap: How Many Black Hoods Are There?

The Westside Story Award to alice:

At one point Jughead said something like ‘keep your Dark Circle away from my Serpents’ and it hit me how homoerotic the gang names are.

And on Straight People Watch: Spring 2K18:

The Packing Heat Award to Sade:

Glad someone is finally recognizing that Pearls and Pistols are the only two real genders. So tired of this “pearl handled pistolswp_postsnonsense.

The Fragile Vinaigrette Award to Beth:

It’s so absurd! Like, what’s an acceptable dressing for a Man Salad? Crude oil? Turpentine? I hear a 2:1 mix of paint thinner and molten lava is to die for when drizzled over a medley of cactus, rebar and finely diced football laces.

And the Gladiator Award to Rey, Juno, and lastminutelulu:

“chariots of bacteriawp_postsmade me alienate my co-workers with 120decibel laughter

  1. OMG. I didn’t even have a speech prepared! I have to thank Autostraddle, Valerie, but most of all Dorothy Snarker, since I was shamelessly riffing off of her Jane Rizzoli “Ponytail of Righteous Justice” days of recapping Rizzoli & Isles. Thank you for this honor.
