The Comment Awards Are Mommi Blogging


Hi there, cats and kittens! Welcome to Friday. We made it through the wilderness somehow!

This week, Audrey did some research on body hair, while Cameron left ghosts behind.

Casey’s got some queer urban fantasy books that we might want to read.

Beth introduced us to Klara Vanova, the owner of a gender-neutral barbershopreally wish I could go to.

Going to Pride? There’s an Autostraddle Meet-Up for that!

In Queer Folklore, Siobhan brought us the asexuals of Ancient Greece.

Thank you, Laura, for this guide to lube!

And in the latest installment of one of my very favorite series, Laneia brought us all of your beautiful faces doing what you do — this time at work.

And then there were your comments!

On Four Hot New Queer and Queer-ish Singles From Your Faves to Usher In Summer:

The Gayday Award to Bee:

All of these are great but I also spent the whole time of Mary Lambert’s video shouting GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYY at the screen over and over so I guess that’s my favorite.

On What I Wore: Navigating the Heteronormative Patriarchy, Pt. 11:

The Chance of Rain Award to Chandra:

This is the best installment yet. Also I love “chance of manspreading

On 27 Things That Exude More Positive Energy Than Hope Hicks Thinks Donald Trump Does:

The Co-Authors Award to MKH:

This was 27 too long. What a bland, trite article. Trump serves up some easy fodder; you have to do the bare minimum to find humor in it. Unfortunately, whoever wrote this FAILED. #28 Susanne Garber

On Oh Hey! It’s Alyssa #22: A-Camp!:

The Trudy, Madly, Deeply Award to Isabel:

Scoop up Alyssa, THEN scatter. A VERY IMPORTANT AND DISREGARDED MENTION. You have to check your peripherals for a lil baby top for scooping BEFORE scattering.

On PHOTO GALLERY: Queer at Work:

The Bring Your Gaylien to Work Day Award to amidola:

This is like meeting the Kara Danvers and Clark Kent selves of the Superheroes you hang out with on the regular at the gaylien bar, only to realize they’re even cooler in RL.

On Pop Culture Fix: Wonder Woman Will Save Us From Patriarchal Action Movies and Other Riveting Stories:

The Furiosa Test Award to Joanna:

My favorite cishet white guy on the planet (one of my best friends) said ever since Mad Max, his measure of if a film or series is going to be good is the outrage of misogynist, fedora wearing, dudebros. By this standard, he’s convinced Wonder Woman will be amazing.

On 6 Box Wines, Ranked From “Capri-Fun” To “I’ve Had Worse” By 30 Drunk Queers:

The Mellen-Camper Award to Carmen SanDiego:

Lil’ Bota with Jackie and Diane Two American kids doing the best they can

On Mommi Is the New Daddy:

The Lifestyle Brand Award to Brianna

On Is Tennis Full of Lesbians?:

The Call is Coming From Inside the House Award to Chandra:

Silly Margaret. Everything is full of lesbians.

    • Is Holly Marie Combs mommi? I want there to be a place where I can submit people and Erin or Kayla can tell me if someone is mommi or not until I fully understand.

      Also I saw Heather added Jane Fonda to the mix, but is she more grandmommi? So many questions.

      • I think we need a Cosmo-style quiz to help determine how mommi we, or anyone else, might be. Of course, the true revelation may come from whether a mommi would ever do Cosmo quiz.

        My hazarded guess would be that a mommi would be outwardly dismissive of such frippery, but secretly enjoy doing them while getting their highlights touched up, but really I’d need to defer to an expert on the matter.

        • Do mommis still enjoy Cosmo quizzes or have they dismissed them to move over to Teen Vogue, magazine leader of the resistance?

    • I still don’t get it and I feel like Grandpa Simpson
      “I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I’m with isn’t it, and what’s it seems weird and scary to me, and it’ll happen to you, too.”

  1. The “Trudy, Madly, Deeply Award” made me laugh harder than all the comments

  2. Funny enough, the day I posted that weather comment it was in fact clear with no rain (or male tears), and later in the week we had a thunderstorm. Maybe I should think about a career change

  3. first Mommis and now lil baby tops? how many new kinds of crushes do y’all want me to have?

  4. Ha! I totally wasn’t expecting that. Thank you! I’ll be sure to let my friend know!
