The Comment Awards Are Getting Handsy

I got stuck in an elevator on the way to my office this morning and I only almost cried twice. Trust falls be damned, there’s no better co-worker bonding experience.

Here in the land of lezzes and lingerie (but mostly spell checks and email threads full of feelings) we had an especially hot week. It is Masturbation Month, after all. Need help celebrating? Look no further than 54 Pictures of Miley Cyrus Looking Really Gay. And you guys, the Masturbation Roundtable cannot be missed. Masturbation Roundtable forever. Speaking of doing you, check out this exciting new addition to the merch store! There was also, a HANDful of other goodies like idol worship over Zelda Fitzgerald,  french toast and queer travels in Georgia-the-country.

What exciting adventures did you have this week?

  1. That Tootsie Pop comment made me diiiieeee when I saw it (which I think was about 2 seconds after it was posted because I’m so bored, guys).

    • The boredom becomes a really big problem when you’ve read every comment on an awesome article and then you see that the article has a new comment on it but it’s a reply to a different comment so you CTRL + F today’s date to find the new reply and you do that every single time you see there’s a new comment.

      Or maybe that’s just me.

      I really love Autostraddle.

  2. This is a much prouder moment than the one I described in order to get here.

  3. I saw the article and got the idea but wasn’t able to comment so I assumed someone else was going to get to it before me.

    • Boo. Maybe if you click it it takes you to a website emblazoned with rainbows and “NOPE YOU ARE WRONG” in large flashing migraine-inducing letters? That’s the ideal scenario.

    • Oh no!

      Many of the ads on AS are generated by an outside company and occasionally some homophobic ones show up (bc advert logarithms be crazy). If you email alex[at]autostraddle[dot]com she can remove it!
