The Comment Awards Are Doing Karaoke With Shane and Bette and Sophie and Finley

A small, brown and white dog peeking over their laptop screen, with a caption that says "Hey did you see that comment?!"

Hi there, fireflies! What’s YOUR go-to karaoke song? Mine is Fat Bottom Girls, by Queen.

This week, the Sunday quiz asked the most important question: Which lesbian TV trope are you?

Will brought us an illustrated guide to myths about testosterone and fertility.

Finally! An Emmy nomination! For MJ Rodriguez!!!!

Kayla guessed which karaoke songs each L Word: Generation Q character would sing. I’d like to add that halfway through belting out Closing Time at the end of the evening, Finley probably drops the mic and runs after her friends, who have started to leave the building.

Nerdy and happy about it? Not sure where to find your people? Good news! We’re everywhere!

KaeLyn and I…are very different types of Capricorns!

Finally, I am SO excited for this new A+ series, Spaces and Places!

And then there were your comments.


On Quiz: Which Lesbian TV Trope Are You?

The Sarah Connor Chronicles Award to Laura and msanon:

a sentient quiz that compensates for a perceived lack of ‘lifestyle’ is -exactly- why we should all be working much harder against the singularity than we are.

On Pop Culture Fix: Stephanie Beatriz Is a Non-Magical Disney Heroine In the Enchanted “Encanto”:

The Strong Female Role Model Award to TV, Margaret, and Caitlin:

To mention Encanto and not mention the extremely buff lady who is an instant root is very out of character for this site

On The L Word: Generation Q: What Every Character Would Sing at Queer Karaoke Night:

The Headcanon Award to Lu:

This is so on point that in a weird Mandela Effect way I genuinely now believe that I have seen Alice sing “Bitch” and will not be convinced otherwise. Kudos!

On Amity Smooches Luz as “The Owl House” Breaks More Disney Ground:

The Simply The Best Award to Pallas:

No mainstream gay rep has EVER made me squeal in delight the way the Owl House does, and idk why, but I’m so thankful for it! Sure, She-Ra and Steven Universe are pretty sweet. But this……… this is just The Best

On No Filter: Imagine Someone Looking at You Like Leisha Hailey Is Looking at This Dog:

The Prestige Publication Award to Kristana:

If Nat and Gigi are on the cover of a magazine, can we can that issue Nat-ional Gigigraphic?

On Dating a Librarian Is The Best Thing To Happen To My Bookshelves:

The Both Sides Now Award to KatieRainyDay:

As a gay librarian myself who has finally come around to culling in my own shelves (but was horrified before)I feel really seen by both sides of this

And on Pop Culture Fix: Legally Blonde’s Writers Trample Best Rumor of 2021, Say Ending Was Always Straight:

The I Think I’ve Always Known Award to Kate:

The typo, “Dove Cameron always knew she was straight”, makes me laugh. For a sec, I thought maybe she had re-come out as straight, lol. Glad to click the link and see she still plays for our team, haha.
