The Comment Awards Are Ordering Bananas Foster

Between Autostraddle’s GLAAD nominationJodie Foster finally coming out and the premiere of Tegan and Sara’s new song, it’s been a big week in lesboland, hasn’t it? This also marks the week I started watching Pretty Little Liars and decided my future may involve living in a pillow fort + furiously writing Emily-centric fanfiction… but I digress.

We made Magnolia’s famously delicious banana puddingadded Madison to our queer travel list and talked about flogging. Fonseca spoke about the slower pace of the south, Julia talked to queer theater staple Maggie Keenen-Bolger and Morgan interviewed Kings, a queerific Brooklyn band.

Also there was some Frida Kahlo worship and 70 Photos of Jodie Foster and have you heard of coptic binding? No, it isn’t a sex thing but you’ll be turned on by the crafty beauty of it!

Now onto the main event…

  1. WAIT. Did you guys coin “Evan Rachel Wood Bisexual” as a SEO ploy? My life has been shattered (not really), I always thought it was just a funny joke…

    • If so, autostraddle was acting as a massive hive mind. I’m pretty sure there was an article titled that, but the joke started in the comments.

    • yes, we put it in a headline and I joked about it in the opening paragraph and then it became a joke in the comments and is now a big joke/SEO ploy. here’s the thing though: WE’RE STILL NOT ON THE FRONT PAGE OF GOOGLE RESULTS FOR EVAN RACHEL WOOD BISEXUAL. there’s nobody else on the internet who says Evan Rachel Wood bisexual more than this website says Evan Rachel Wood Bisexual. We’re at the very top of page two. I think we could take this one in 2013.

  2. If you type it into some uk search sites it comes up either fourth of fifth in the results and once even 1st place. Weird since it’s American but then the UK love it so much that they’re clicking on your from Glasgow to Cardiff to London. Bit stalkerish the Uk sometimes. :)

  3. It was truly suspenseful. Now, whenever someone comes out to a large room of people, I’m calling it “Pulling a Jodie Foster”


  4. When I told him about the Cutest Bestie award, said bestie commented: “The moment you attach yourself to me, you win something.”
    How exciting!
