The Comment Awards Are Fighting The Good Fight

Good day, queer cadets! Have you challenged the patriarchy today?

This week Carmen reviewed Roxane Gay’s Bad Feminist, Mey and Mari shared some thoughts about Transparent and Riese listed 10 reasons the movie adaptation of The Giver was awful.

Speaking of awful, Gabby took on liveblogging Lifetime’s unauthorized Saved By The Bell movie that we were all so excited (and so so scared) about. As Riese aptly stated, “there is not enough weed in California for this movie.” What about caffeine pills?

California passed an affirmative consent law and the NFL’s new policy on domestic violence left much to be desired. Then the A-team addressed how to break up with someone without being a jerk. We’re psyched about jewelry for tomboy femmes, this quiz for journalers and a Supergirl TV show.
