The Comment Awards Are Putting ‘Dirty Computer’ On Repeat

A small, brown and white dog peeking over their laptop screen, with a caption that says "Hey did you see that comment?!"

Good morning, earthworms and astronauts! I feel very sappy about this week’s first Comment Award, which goes out to a (new) comment on a very old article. I love this community, I love the full circle moments when old posts keep giving, and I LOVE that Gene E. came back to update us! Let’s all keep living our dreams this week, shall we?

This week, Kayla’s got all the spring mocktails you need to know about.

This quiz was EXTREMELY up my alley: Which 90s Movie Made You Gay?

Gentleman Jack is back, and it’s still the gayest thing on television!

Analyssa spoke to Chloe Caldwell about period feelings and her new book, The Red Zone.

Drew got high and watched Elena Undone, which means that Drew is far braver than I am! (But then again, maybe Drew doesn’t have flashbacks to the era when all of the gay movies made by Wolfe were available on Logo’s website and we watched them one by one out of sheer desperation.)

Kayla loved Russian Doll‘s second season. Sweet birthday babyyyy!

Today is Earth Day, and Dani Janae’s got some slow fashion for the occasion.

Janelle! Monáe! Is! Nonbinary! And now I know what I’ll be listening to all day!

And then there were your comments!

On Find Your Fit: The Non-Binary Queer Punk Tired of Looking Like a Teenage Boy:

The Living the Dream Award to Gene E.:

I saved this article when I was a closeted 17-year-old kid: I think this was the first time I realized what non-binary meant! Anyway, I’m 21 now, and now in college I get to dress like this every day and it’s fuckin awesome!

On It’s Cake and Cunnilingus Day — Let’s Celebrate Accordingly!

The Four Letter Word Award to Snaelle:

Let them eat c***

On Quiz: Which 90s Movie Made You Gay?

The All Gay All the Time Award to :):

I’m pretty sure all of these movies made me gay. I just couldn’t remember which made me gay first. Maybe it was Now and Then. But I think Fried Green Tomatoes got there first.

On It’s Time To Get Into Alt Pickles:

The Brine-Star Award to Brinstar:

Thank you for the important pickle recommendations. I have increased my A+ membership level by two tiers because I strongly support pickle content.

On FYP: Okay — But Do Y’all ACTUALLY Wanna Take It Slow?

The Feeling Seen Award to jetlag:

These posts are the blackest and the gayest I feel all week on the internet. Thanks again!

And on Happy 4/20! I Got Extremely High and Watched Elena Undone, the Worst Lesbian Movie:

The Do Her/Be Her/Fuck Her Award to Maria:

They have the exact same hair styles. I am unfortunately turned on.

And the Explanations & Explorations Award to Donna M:

I am still waiting for Autostraddle to track down Nicole Conn for an in-depth interview, as she is an important part of our heritage, and many questions remain about just what was going on in her films. Perhaps Drew, Riese, and Erin could make a day of it.
