The Comment Awards Are Kissing In Candlelight (Sadly, With No Dinosaurs)

A small, brown and white dog peeking over their laptop screen, with a caption that says "Hey did you see that comment?!"

Hello! Would you like a Twitter thread about how bummed we all are that there are no actual dinosaurs in Ammonite?

This week, Ari from Greasebats was incredibly relatable.

Read this: The Allure of Chola Femininity.

The trailer for the Kate Winslet/Saoirse Ronan movie is here and it looks…fine, I guess?

Kayla has taken us all under her wing to explain the dyke drama of the Real Housewives.

Tops and bottoms and switches, oh my!

Finally, Sara Ramirez! Is! Non! Binary! Love this for us, love this for them! (Brb, gonna go put a pronoun pin on my cardboard cutout of Kat Sandoval from A-Camp.)

And then there were your comments.


On Lez Try It: Baking a Cake a la “The Hours”:

The Hours and Hours of Cake Award to SylviaBeach:

My Jewish mother ALSO makes this cake! I am ALSO thousands of miles away from my family during this pandemic and surprised to be having feelings about that! Here we all are, it sure is a place to be! More importantly, I snort-laughed several times into my chocolate while reading this and it made me feel less lonely. I wish you many lovely moments with your cake.

On You DID IT! See Our Slack Office Freak Out When We Met Our Fundraising Goal, and More!

The No, Thank YOU For Being Here Award to Brandi:

I’m so happy for you all. I love this site. I have personally struggled a lot this past year and this site has helped me so much, especially Laneia in particular. Thank you for being here. <3

On Let’s Talk About (Queer) Sex: So You’re a Top/Bottom/Switch:

The Topped Off Award to Chandra:

This just confirms that Autostraddle is tops

On “Ammonite” Trailer: Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan in “Portrait of a Lady on Fire” Meets “Gentleman Jack”:

The Cunning Linguist Award to Kristana, Chandra and Iarran Mé:

Kristana: Mary Anning may have been the source for the old tongue twister “She sells seashells down by the seashore”. Judging by this trailer she may have done a little tongue twisting herself. / Chandra: She does seem to be a cunning conchologist*! (*Yes that’s a real word)

And the HCV, Now In Concert Award to Emily:

The world needs an all-queer band of string players called Homosexually Charged Violins now more than ever.

On “The Chi” Season Three: Easy on the Eyes as a Queer Woman, Hard on the Heart as a Black Woman:

The Vital! Information! Award to Cecily:

How dare y’all mention these incredibly hot sex scenes without being explicit about which episodes they’re in? I have ADD and not a lot of time to sit down with a full season, and I just want the goods! 😂

On “Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” Dyke Drama, “Explained”:

The R.I.P. Sounder Award to Donna M:

From this helpful summary I get a “later seasons Jenny Schecter” vibe from most of these women.

On No Filter: King Princess Wrote You a Love Song:

The Nothin’ to See Here Award to Cleo:

I was 15 years old in 1985 and baby-bi me would have been sooooo intrigued by young Stacy London. For no reason really. Doesn’t everyone notice cool girls?

On Sara Ramirez Is Non-Binary: Icon Instagrams Capacity to Be “Girlish Boy, Boyish Girl, Boyish Boy, All, Neither”:

The Soarin’ Award to Lanni:

My little queer heart absolutely SOARS for Sara. They were so important to my coming out, and I can’t wait for generations of queer kids to get to have them as an icon.

On Pop Culture Fix: Kate Winslet Says The Lesbian Sex in “Ammonite” Is “Not Like Eating a Sandwich”:

The I Can Be Your Hero, Baby Award to Halloween Jack:

But, I mean, doesn’t that depend on the sandwich?

On As School Season Begins, Fight for Trans Representation in Public Libraries:

The Here, Here! Award to Shez:

Yesssssss. I love that my kids department has a trans librarian and multiple nb assistants working on their Degrees, but I want to see that in all of our departments, and across the field.

Queer Girl is your number one fan. She's a fat feminist from California who doodles hearts in the corners of her Gay Agenda. She's working on a children's book, she's on Twitter, and she thinks you should drink more water! She also wants to make you laugh.
