The Comment Awards Are Meeting at The Planet


Hi kittens! What if it were already winter we got to wear scarves and go ice-skating and sip warm drinks? What if that?

This week, Katrina took us to gym class!

Stephanie and her friends reenacted The L Word – or at least the part that happened at The Planet. No word on the crying, drinking, fighting…well. No word on the rest of it.

Nora wants your best fall looks!

Breaking up is hard to do, but Molly’s here for you with this playlist.

Vintage. Lesbian. Smut.

Carmen wants you to watch Star, a show starring noted heterosexual Queen Latifah.

Heather’s got a review of the Billie Jean King biopicBattle of the Sexes!

And then there were your comments.

On Grease Bats: Family:

The Know Her, Do Her, Be Her Award to Alaina and Al:

Alaina: we all know a str8 karen. / Al: Some of us may have even BEEN str8 Karen.

On I Made All My Friends Reenact The Planet From “The L Word” for a Week and Now Everyone Hates Me:

The Very Shane Today Award to Frankie:

I hate myself for this but I genuinely found myself attracted to fake Shane. I thought I was better than this…

And the OurChart Award to Rous Rose:

The fact that you contractually bound everyone to hang out with you kind of sounds like an Alice thing to do, Stephanie.

On No Filter: Bella Thorne Wins the Thirst Games:

The Team Ortberg Award to Carmen SanDiego, donnamartingraduates, and Kiki:

Carmen SanDiego: Wow people here are really into Mallory Ortberg. / donnamartingraduates: join us Carmen! / Kiki: Is there somewhere people aren't into Mallory Ortberg?

On Pop Culture Fix: “Pretty Little Liars” Is Spinning Off With Ali and Mona:

The Immortality, My Darlings Award to Katie:

Queer Girl: Oh Marlene King, you've become the Ilene Chaiken of teen shows. / Katie: In TV, you either die a hero or live long enough to become Ilene Chaiken. / Al: Haha, nearly fell off my seat when I saw that comment. It deserves two awards! / CP: This is exchange is so perfect I want to frame it.

And the Never Trust a -Lene Award to Frankie:

Plus, I dont know how this is going to work considering they long ago stripped Alison of everything that made her interesting and married her off so she could stay in Rosewood and raise the kids she was forcibly inseminated with. And isn’t Mona supposed to be living in France keeping her mothers evil twin and her mothers evil twins daughter who was also the evil twin of her best friend/cousin in a makeshiftbasement dollhouse for all eternity? My god that show was shit. I really do hate you, Marlene. Your definitely the new Ilene. Never again will I trust a -lene. / Heather Hogan: "Never again will I trust a -lene" is the funniest thing I have read in awhile.

And on “Battle of the Sexes” Is a Triumph for Sports Movies and Lesbians:

The Harold And The Purple Racquet Award to Meg:

Billie Jean King is a hero!

  1. Re: Mallory Ortberg. I honestly have no idea who she is other than a point of obsession for Autostraddle members.

    ……I await my forced removal from Autostraddle for my ignorance……

  2. Finally just moved back into my place after having water damage repaired so free hugs, snuggles, kisses, and gropes for anyone who wants them!

  3. Can I just take a moment to indulge in a food-related vent? Yes? Ok good.

    Attn. café/restaurant owners! The following items do NOT count as appropriate vegetarian substitutes, to be charged at the same price as your meat offerings:

    -a meat sandwich minus the meat
    -an extra slice of tomato (same goes for lettuce, peppers, spinach etc.)
    -a microscopically thin smear of avocado or hummus
    -a larger than average sprig of parsley
    -a pile of carrot shavings
    -“garden vegetable soup” that is actually watered-down spaghetti sauce from a tin

    Thank you and please feel free to post your own food rants below.

    • Once I went to a restaurant with a group and, scanning the menu for vegetarian offerings, found basically nothing. Rather disappointed, I ordered a ‘garden salad’. There was no description, but everyone knows what a garden salad is? It’s a cheap and sad salad full of generic vegetables with no variability throughout the seasons?

      There were little bits of freshly cooked bacon all over the salad. The only thing that made it even a little bit better was everyone else hated their food too. Anyway, that was how I learned that you have to ask if the ‘garden salad’ is vegetarian.

      • Omg. I would have been tempted to call the server over and ask what part of the garden the bacon plant grows in

      • My boss took our little team out for lunch one day and the vegan coworker asked the server if the garden salad was vegan. I had assumed the question was for the salad dressing, but am now wondering if it was also in case of surprise bacon.

    • While I’m not a vegetarian I completely agree that those are pretty poor substitutes especially if they are charging the same price. Makes me glad i’m a meat eater lol

    • How can anyone spread hummus thinly? IT WAS MADE TO BE SLATHERED YOU HEARTLESS FIENDS.

      I can’t post my food rants there’s not enough patience in the world for that and my way are very strange if not horrifying to most people.

      For example I find baked fruit to be an abomination and most dairy products to be gross.
      Also I’m gifted at making baked fruit things which often adds a layer of outrage.
      And irritatingly inconsistent that I like cheese in pizza etc and tres leche cake, but can only stomach eating feta in ‘mass amounts’ or uncooked and wanna hurl when I see people spread butter on things, but I make kickass lemon curd.

      See how quickly things could devolve into ranting about my food weirdness?
      You don’t want me rant about food, that way leads to chaos.
