The Comment Awards Are Out of This World

Greetings, intergalactic voyagers! Hop on board as we journey through the Straddleverse.

We spent the week doing subversive cross-stitching, feasting on salads without lettuce and watching the videos for “Bad Blood” and “Feeling Myself” over and over again.

Gabby hosted the Friday Open Thread party, Raquel talked about about navigating trans identity at college and Kate reported on Ireland’s marriage equality referendum.

In other news, Cate Blanchett isn’t a lady’s lady after all“Mad Max: Fury Road” is the feminist action movie we’ve been waiting for and Autostraddle’s Ultimate Lesbian Sex Survey continues to give us life.
