The Comment Awards are Scissoring in a Hammock in the Woods

Hey there, campers! Did you see the big news about Autostraddle’s next special issue? I am so excited! This is going to be so good! I can’t wait to read your brilliant writing about the great outdoors! Hiking in it! Swimming in it! Having sex in it! Maybe even all three! Maybe even two of those things at once! (I am so sorry, I’m a little under the weather and I think my fever wrote this intro.)

Onward!

This week, Riese and Kristin premiered their new podcast, To L and Back, and not only did we get to hear Be Steadwell’s entire cover of the intro song, which sent me into outer space, we were also reminded that ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS WE SEE IN THE PILOT IS BETTE AND TINA TALKING ABOUT THE FACT THAT TINA IS OVULATING AND HOW SEXY THAT IS and yes. That is fine? It’s fine. If that’s your thing, I am into that journey for you. It’s fine.

Listen: I just feel like one of my first impressions of lesbians in the wild at a VERY impressionable age was Bette and Tina bowing???? to a vial of sperm and I just–

Ok anyway this thing happened and I don’t want to talk about it, but I am excited for ‘reverse-Puppy Episode’ to make its way into our lexicon.

To whom it may concern: It’s time to write that letter to the editor!

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is back with a new season, and Kayla was way into Sabrina’s rage! (As a Mad Men devotee, Kiernan Shipka will always be Sally Draper to me, so I am here both for her kicky little outfits AND her rage. Of COURSE Don Draper’s child grew up to be a witch.)

Speaking of teen (witches), Casey’s got a shiny new list of queer books for kids and young adults! I will be reading all of these!

Molly Shannon playing Emily Dickinson sounds like a fever dream I’ll probably have tonight, but in fact it is the best lesbian comedy Heather’s ever seen. I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THIS.

And then there were your comments!


On Karen Erases Her Own Bisexuality, Comes Out as Straight in Will and Grace’s Reverse Puppy Episode:

The Oh My Dog Award to Cyrus:

Also on a riff on the PUPPY EPISODE how dare

And the Bi-Furious Award to Lex:

My trust was at like 0.25% but this STILL made me bi-furious.

On Spook for the Summer: Warm Weather Looks for Dark Hearts:

The No More Ghosting Award to Meg:

i feel so seen that i’m embarrassed, bless you sam

On The “To L and Back” Podcast Premiere Is Here: Episode 101 (L’Pilot Part One):

The Virgin Award to starlit:

I have never ever ever listened to a podcast before in my life and yet as I type this I’m already five minutes into the first episode. I’d legit do anything for Autostraddle. Even listening to a podcast. For the very first fucking time in my life.

On “Wild Nights With Emily” Might Be The Best Lesbian Comedy Ever:

The Silver (Screen) Linings Award to Sally:

Before this review I was excited to see this film, but now I’ve read it I am a hysterical blancmange whose existence is defined by excitement for this film. If, on the back of this and The Favourite, a new golden age of absurdist comedies based on the lives of historical women were to dawn, I might forgive the world for otherwise not having its shit together right now.

On Pop Culture Fix: Geez, This Kate Winslet Lesbian Dinosaur Movie Is Making Straight People Mad!

The Stage-and-Screen-O-Saurus Award to Hermione Danger and Snaelle:

Hermione Danger: I didn’t know that all I wanted was a movie where lesbian Kate Winslet travels back in time for dinosaur adventures until I was misled by this headline/graphic / Snaelle: Also here for the adventures of a lesbian dinosaur as voiced by Kate Winslet

On 16 of the Best Lesbian and Bisexual Dance Scenes in TV History:

The Dance Like No One But AO3 Readers Are Watching Award to amidola:

That moment when you’re wondering why this list is lacking so many iconic dance scenes and then you realize they only happened in fan fiction.

And on Call for Submissions: The Outsiders Issue:

The Break NOT A Leg Award to Ish and Laneia:

Goodness, AS. I’m leaving on a three-month hike on monday, and it means so much to me, and that topic is something that brings me back again and again. I would love to write, and share, and I would love to save everything and read everything. But also. I’m leaving on monday. SO excited.
