And then there were your comments!

On Straight People Watch: Quarantine Edition:

The Spit Take Award to Sally:

Erin, could you not have shipped out some PPE before we read this article. I just spit out my tea laughing, and probably infected the tomato plants. Irresponsible!

And the Imagine! Award to Charlotte:


On Baopu #72: Working From Home:

The Hard Lessons Award to Adrian:

I made this my phone lock screen. Hopefully it will sink in somehow <3

On “To L and Back” L Word Podcast Episode 405: Lez Girls:

The Eviscerated I Am Award to BettyOnIt:

The Jenny/Alice/Monet fight had to be improvised as no way would IC imply that Jenny’s writing is bad.

On A Definitive Ranking of Good & Gather Snacks at Target According to Me, a Bitch for Target:

Also, please note that there is a strike today, 5/1/2020 – save your Target purchases for later if you can! <3

The Comments & Awards Award to Leapfrog, Clara and Chandra:

If one more effing restaurant or brand names themselves “something & something” I am going to continue to be mildly annoyed by it

The Ladies Who Zoom Award to Caitlin:

one day i hope to be a tenth as iconic as the ladies who zoom

I am so starstruck! What an absolute dream combination of artists right here. Saving Face, Ash, and Huntress were all formative for me, and I cannot WAIT to see The Half of It!

And on Pop Culture Fix: Janelle Monáe’s Final “Homecoming” Trailer Is Here and Queer and Weird as Hell:

the phrase “coven of artists” is just delicious, thank you for this delightful roundup

Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We're running the fundraiser through March 29th! We're out of immediate danger...but we had to ask...what if we could survive for longer? Will you help?

Go to our Fundraiser!


Darcy, a.k.a. Queer Girl, is your number one fan. She's a fat feminist from California who doodles hearts in the corners of her Gay Agenda. They're living through a pandemic, they're on Twitter, and they think you should drink more water! She also wants to make you laugh.

Darcy has written 362 articles for us.


      • If it helps I messed up yesterday too and felt the same way @amidola.

        Appreciate the Cando attitude!

        Hope you’re doing ok, considering. Can’t imagine how exhausted you must be rn. Sending love and tea/whatever your tea equivalent is 💜☕

        • My tea is coffee;-)
          Thanks @snaelle!
          We’re not nearly as badly off as some places, but still, it’s been two months, and if there’s another wave after easing lockdown, I’m just going to sit in a corner and cry.
          I’m probably going to do that anyway sometime.
          Everything’s just been so f****** dramatic and heartbreakingly tragic.
          Also, I really hope that we’re going to have a very necessary conversation about how feminism has failed and why it has in the last few decades.
