Hello sunbursts! How’s your week going? I’m mere hours from being on vacation so excitement levels are out of hand in my corner of the universe.
This week Mey wrote about which female superheroes Marvel should make movies about ASAP and Kat has 15 women who are killing it as queer hip hop artists. Larry King remains the worst and Katy Perry continues the cultural appropriation parade that is her career. But here’s some Beyonce/Nicki Minaj femslash to make you feel better about the world.
One tiny note – lovely Intern Liz (get to know her, get to love her) will be taking over the comment award game for the next two weeks while I’m wandering around the Canadian wilderness with my girlfriend. See you soon, adventurers!

The Another Reason To Join A+ Award to dragonsnap:
This is everything I have ever wanted since I first came to Autostraddle via the Taylor Swift / Lady Gaga article* and tried to find more articles by this brilliant person named Riese and read the Riese’s Piece about having lunch with Alex and her parents and holding hands under the table. This was in early 2010, back when commenters and writers frequently discussed their number one feeling, and described themselves as excite.
(*it was linked to in this post on of my favourite blogs: http://amptoons.com/blog/2010/02/14/what-im-reading/)
Anyway I love you all forever and Riese you are one of my Top Ten Heroic Persons and this is such the best. <3 <3 <3
