The Comment Awards Are Engaged to That Wife Who Loves Projects

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

Hi there, tater tots! This has been A WEEK but guess what?! We made it through! (I think, honestly, that I made it through largely thanks to the POV: I’m You’re Wife and I Love Projects video.)

In other news, I just woke up from a nap (what is time?), and I was dreaming that the Comment Awards had to be printed out and then posted on all of the telephone poles in my neighborhood. I was SO delighted to remember, upon waking, that instead I can simply share this space with you!

This week was… hot. 

Musical theater has prepared Ari for a future without capitalism, and there’s a playlist for that!

This was! So! Good! Future Present: Talking with Johanna Hedva About the Luxury of Our Needs.

Wynonna Earp is back, Valerie Anne is recapping, and this week’s episode had all that and a chili cookoff!

These limited edition perks for the Autostraddle fundraiser are absolutely EVERYTHING. I mean! An AMSR video from Rachel! How can anyone resist.

Alicia wrote about the BDE (Big Demeanor Energy) of WAP, about the expansiveness of Black queer and femme sexuality, and so much more.

I never, ever tire of Holland Taylor!

And then there were your comments.

On My Top 10 Television Characters: Carmen, Who Never Forgets the Women Who Deserved Better:

The Proof Enough Award to shamblebot:

I still remember being post-college, just barely out of the closet, watching The L Word on some illegal torrent site, asking myself “Are you *really* queer if you haven’t been with a girl yet?”, and Tasha strolled onto the screen with her smile and her gorgeous deep laugh. There was no doubt I was queer after that! I agree that she deserved so much better than what the show gave her, and would love a Tasha spinoff in a post-DADT world.

On QUIZ: Tomato Variety or Sex Toy?

The NSFW Award to cleo:

Umm. Wow. OK. I’m going to have to complete this quiz when I’m not using my work laptop. I was not expecting that first answer!

On 34 Feelings You Have About Voting For Joe Biden:

The Light Bulb Moment Award to Rosehips:

On Pop Culture Fix: The Hallmark Channel Offers Up its Promised Lesbians at Last:

The Seriously! Award to aj:

That Grey’s ranking is a CRIME. Why are there so many men? WHO PUTS OWEN HUNT BEFORE MAGGIE PIERCE?????

And on Also.Also.Also: Holland Taylor and Sarah Paulson Are Doing Quarantine Like Two Introverts in Love:

The POV: Your Life is Perfect Award to Caroline:
