On Guessing Game: Endangered Species:

The Where Everybody Knows Your Name Award to Chess:

Nine seconds?? I spend too much time on this website. Endangered Species 🟢🟢🟢🟢–🟢🟢🟢🟢

On Bravo Dyke Reacts to the Vanderpump Rules Midseason Trailer:

The Icon Award to Kris H:

The phrase “do you want anything?

On I’ll Watch Anything With Witchy Women:

The Maybe We’re The Weirdos, Mister Award to Sollemnia:

*Sees this title and the little intro teaser*: oh this is definitely about The Craft. 1 minute later: VINDICATION!!! I didn’t see The Craft until I was a teenager but Charmed is lodged deep in the recesses of my baby brain AND so are the Hex Girls from the direct-to-video Scooby-Doo movie around the same time. The Craft has many sons and I am grateful for all of them (paraphrasing Yhara Zayd). I love a witchy story but I absolutely explode when the witch is also the designated Goth of the story. A woman with spells? Delightful. A woman with spells and an all-black wardrobe? THAT GOOD SHIT!

On GLAAD Report Confirms Cancellations Are Killing The Vibe For LGBTQ+ TV Characters:

The Site of Their Own Award to Nayeem:

I would never have watched ALOTO if not for this website because I didn’t grow up aware of the movie. And as someone with an (ever decreasing) attention span, I actually rely on this website to sift through the fodder and tell me about the good stuff Ads and sponsored content here matters!

On Death Cab for Cutie Songs I’ve Cried To, Ranked:

The Sad White Man Music Award to Dann:

loved this and love being part of the cool club of black queers obsessed with sad white man music. & I would absolutely read a companion piece about The National if you have one in you, Dani

On Dykes on Dates: Sometimes Date Night Is Just Chips, Dips, and a Drink Tasting:

The Buzz Buzz Award to Nova Duarte Martinez:


And on How to Finger Your Partner When You Have Chronic Pain in Your Hands:

The Fists Up Award to Mat:

THIS ARTICLE!! THANK YOU!!!! As someone who’s written on this website about how I believed my chronic pain meant I couldn’t fist, I would like to report back that I’ve learned that fisting actually is less painful on my hands than, say, fucking with 2 fingers! My fantastical fears were much worse than reality. Excited to try some of the things here that I haven’t, thank you Ro! <3 mat
