The Comment Awards Are Here to Squire You to Prom

Hi sugar loaves! Are you hanging in there? It’s me, your friendly neighborhood Queer Girl, and I’m so very honored to bring you the Comment Awards this week!

And what a week it’s been. We all freaked out when One Day at a Time name-checked Autostraddle, and then turned out to be a revolutionary show; Polly Anna Rocha changed the world, Chelsea brought back High Femme (!), and Mey introduced us to Shea Diamond’s “I Am Her.”

Carrie finally let herself get angry.

Riese previewed an entire season of upcoming queer TV for us, and Erin brought us yet more internet haikus. (There will never be enough of Erin’s internet haikus.)

Laura looked into the real story behind Hidden Figures  — turns out the movie got quite a bit right, and what they left out is even cooler! Alaina explored gender and kink, Heather revealed that Margaret Wise Brown was a badass bisexual woman, and oh, hey, that reminds me: Evan Rachel Wood Bisexual made us faint at the Golden Globes.

And then there were the comments!

  1. UM HELLO QUEER GIRL, CHAMPION OF COMMENTS. I would say there’s a conflict of interest in you choosing the comment awards, but like: nah. lol.

    Bren I see you Bren you were a fine Captain of the Comment Awards. MVP to you, Bren.

  2. I would get so many “Heather Hogan Told Me To Award”s because I do pretty much everything Heather Hogan tells me to (except, GET OUT OF THE CAT ROOM, I CAN HEAR YOUR LUNGS FAILING).

    Great job, Queer Girl!!

  3. Receiving my first comment award for something I said on a NSFW Sunday article in the first installment written by Queer Girl . . . that’s like a triple score with an X in Scrabble

    Congratulations Queer Girl!

  4. Queer girl writing the comment awards??! this feels so right. I’m so honored to accept this queer girl comment award ???

    2017 is already doing its best to redeem 2016
