The Comment Awards Are Ready For Spring

Hello dears! What kind of a week have you had? Let’s play roses and thorns. I’ll go first. Rose – seeing red for good reason on facebook all week. Thorn – my neighbor is learning to play bass guitar. I’d rather share a hot tub with a shark than hear the Jaws theme one more time.

Luckily Crystal has some music we wouldn’t mind hearing through our walls and browsing this gallery of hot women over 45 is the perfect de-stressor (though it will get you all worked up). Hansen broke down why Republican support for gay marriage is still suspect and Carmen turned her idol-worshipping eyes to Iris Apfel.

Lest you forget, our Lesbianage class of 2016 is still powering through freshman year and Brittani still has videos for you to watch. Malaika is contemplating a possible move from the prairie and did you see this epic queer girl guide to SF?.

Trans*scribe continues to deliver, with Mey talking about being fat and trans and working it (while wearing the best glasses sweater of all time). Finally, Laneia reminded us of that winter we spent broken-hearted cry-running in the park while listening to Ani Difranco on a discman. (Just me?). Really though, put the To Be An Emotionally Intense 90s Woman playlist on right this minute and then check out this week’s comment awardees!

  1. it still makes me crazy when nobody comments on the comment awards
    hi carrie! your hair looks cute today

      • oh good thanks for the clarification, maybe kind of awk.

        Although, I just had a conversation with my mother on how hot Mary-Louise Parker is…she’s older than both of us.

        • I had a similar conversation with my father the first time I watched Fried Green Tomatoes. I was eleven. Pretty sure I said she was my dream girl.
          And somehow he didn’t know I was a lesbian.

  2. I feel like this has just given me a greater incentive to ignore my actual job and instead just read Autostraddle all day.

    Is hastily command-tabbing to a spreadsheet when my boss walks by something I can put on my resume?

  3. ‘Dears’. A HOMOnym.

    For the record, Cee Webster is hotter than Hannah.

    Also, I like your hair too, Carrie.
