The Comment Awards Are Having Drama! In! Spaaaaaace!

Hi, friends! I am so excited about every single thing I read on Autostraddle this week – it’s truly been a week of gorgeous, thoughtful content (plus lesbian space drama!). I feel, as always, so incredibly lucky to have this amazing resource, and these beautiful people, in my life! That includes you, of course!!!

This week, the TV team brought us the very gayest moments of Jane the Virgin.

Cameron tried to get cool for the summer.

Lesbian! Drama! In! Space!

Tiara wrote about navigating Chicago as a (baby) Black queer.

Well, THIS was perfect: Mozzarella Sticks I’ve Eaten, Ranked.

Foolish Child brought us the chicken sandwich content we needed.

Robin traveled to the Florida Keys!

Finally, Carmen gave us an (amazing!) queer feminist syllabus for Black August.

And then there were your comments!

The Galileo Palileo Award to Sally, Deli Twotone, and Chandra:

But consider this: in space, is your star sign the same? I may not know much about astrology, but it does seem to revolve around earth as the centre of everything, which I thought we got over several hundred years ago. I would hope that in the future, the consummate galileo-palileo would realise she could just switch star sign by moving to Mars.

And the What’s Their Comcast Bill? Award to Denise:

I can’t get WiFi in my fucking back yard but they have it on the space station?

      • lol. one day I will grasp the nuances between leaving a regular comment vs. replying to someone else’s comment

        • If it helps idk why but this has been happening REGULARLY to me in the last few months. Dunno if it’s a change in browser screen sensitivity or what but, it’s not just you.
