  1. Oh wow, I’m honored.
    I was actually rather drunk when writing that list and apologize for the grammar and spelling.
    Also, I’ve reconsidered, somewhat sober:
    Nyssa Al Ghul.
    Fucking League of Assassins, man.

  2. I am so glad that my youthful indiscretions have been immortalized by the Autostraddle Comment Award pantheon

  3. Aww I want to travel back in time and tell my closeted self that I’ll spend the two whole days with a pretty girl (a “second date” that lasts all weekend) and then login to AS and see myself in the comment awards ?
