The Comment Awards Are Raising Mx. Ocean Baby Sharks

Hi, friends!

Listen: I know everything is on fire. And I am so very, very sorry. I am with you. BUT: A Very Good Thing happened to me this week! One I can’t actually talk about! This is making for a great intro! But here is what I’m trying to say: Sometimes, the internet is good. Sometimes, good things still happen.

Which hey, we knew already, because we have Autostraddle and each other! <3 I am so grateful for you! Yes, you!

This week, such good news! KaeLyn is back with new installments of Raising Baby T-Rex!

Carmen read my mind and brought me the exact list I was looking for, 20 Movies About Friendship and Misandry For When You Want to Burn it All Down.

Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor Who is here! Heather reviewed it. And cried.

I’ll be in my bunk. (No seriously, this is a really helpful and informative article!)

This series is so sweet and fierce and honest and I just love it so, so much.

Riverdale is back, and so are Kayla’s recaps!

And then there were your comments.


On FRIDAY OPEN THREAD: How Do You Stand Up For Yourself Like A Boss At Work?

The Power Top Award to KaeLyn:

I thought you opened this FOT with “Hello, power sluts!” on first read and honestly was totally here for it. Power SUITs are good, too.

On 55 Fictional Witches, Ranked by Lesbianism:

The Thrown Under a House Award to Mari:

I was sort of idly going through this and drinking diet Coke and then got to the Wicked Witch of the East being gay because of immediately dying under a house, and the diet Coke came out of my nose and I am in pain and I HATE YOU FOR BEING SO FUNNY

And the All Good, Professor Award to Emily:

minerva mcgonagall loved cats, played a contact sport, and wore tartan — OBVIOUSLY a lesbian. you know what? all the professors at hogwarts are lesbians. try to change my mind.

On Raising Baby T. Rex: The Soft Underbelly of a Hard Femme Mama:

The Mx. Ocean Shark Award to thatottergirl:

This was lovely! I’m always up for more Baby T-Rex content. Also, I have to admit that I was half convinced that the Baby Shark song was something the Mx. Ocean contest winners created on their own. They were great! I bet Remi would be an excellent addition to the team.

On Sunday Funday Is a Fool for Alyson Stoner’s New Queer Music Video:

The Paws Up Award to Uintah:

I spent the first half of the Alyson stoner music video thinking the “couple” was a woman and her cat. Which frankly seems very gay.

And the Re-Paw-Sentation Matters Award to Blackmar:

It would be amazing/hilarious/infuriating if Disney’s first true queer representation was in a movie about lesbian dogs.

On Jodie Whittaker’s “Doctor Who” Is an Impossible Thing, a Miracle:

The Close Encounters of the Wibbly Wobbly Kind Award to EmilyDanvers:

Living kind if locally to where this is set is exciting for me because a walk I’ve been planning to do ends up at Grindleford station so now I can go and look out for aliens and pretend the Doctor is there! I’m so excited for the rest of the series. So far I’ve managed to avoid seeing any criticism of Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor so I want to carry on with that. She deserves all the love!

And on Coming Out 101: The Autostraddle Guide:

The ‘Tis The Season Award to Ray:

Holy moly this is the mother of all compilation guides. Also, I just came out as nonbinary! And it happened to be so close to Coming Out Day. I swear I didn’t plan that.

Queer Girl is your number one fan. She's a fat feminist from California who doodles hearts in the corners of her Gay Agenda. She's working on a children's book, she's on Twitter, and she thinks you should drink more water! She also wants to make you laugh.

    I’m squee-ing over here, though I don’t know why, but I’m so happy the Internet is good to you ! You deserve it from the whole Internets ! (Of course you’ll always have us fabulous creatures on your side)

  2. Queer Girl, I’m so glad that good things are coming your way. You deserve it!

    This week’s Comment Awards are yet another Good Thing to come from the Internet – the parts about Mx. Ocean and Baby Shark brought back happy memories and brightened my day ☺️

  3. Ahh thank you, I am so here for the baby shark love! I was feeling a bit silly about the comment, actually, because it didn’t occur to me to specify that Mx. Ocean was an A-Camp thing. But I guess it’s still on my mind because I left my heart in Ohai with all of youuuuuu
