The Comment Awards Are Sending Will You Marry Me? Y/N Fruit Baskets

small dog sitting at a laptop with the words "hey did you see that comment?"

Hi there, scouts and muffins! You know what you should do this weekend? The thing. YOU KNOW THE THING. Do the thing! You’ll feel better afterwards!

Also, it feels possible Laneia has given similar advice in Also.Also.Also previously, but like: IT STANDS, and I hereby pay it forward!

This week, the team had mishaps in nature.

Ren took us on a truly lovely journey from Appalachia to the PNW.

Heather reviewed Booksmart, a queer teen comedy you’re going to want to see.

In a really perfect edition of Queer Tarotscopes, Meg wants us to try new things this Gemini season.

Rachel wrote this, and it’s just…lol, I love it so much: 50 Ways to Leave Your (Lesbian) Lover.

Carmen reviewed season 2 of Vida, which is unapologetically Latinx and unapologetically queer and really, really worth a watch.

For The Outsiders issue, Lindi wrote about the power of being – and seeing – biracial women out on the trail. 

And 15 years after young Queer Girl was positively perplexed by Lisa the Male Lesbian in season 1 of The L Word, a group of writers came together to give us the roundtable I didn’t know I’d been missing in my life: The L Word’s Lisa The Lesbian-Identified Man: A Trans Symposium.

Then there were your comments!


On Boobs on Your Tube: “The Bold Type” Gives Kat a New Lady Love:

The Mess Baby Award to CD:

idk why the basket of fruit sent me over the edge like queer women have really been gay disasters since the dawn of time lol

On Monday Roundtable: Survival Stories:

The Nature Girl Award to Hester:

I think the true mystery of this is how Heather just keeps. coming. back. I’m pretty sure that round about the time of biting through my tongue I’d have course-corrected to embroidery and other less perilous indoor hobbies. I admire your resilience, nature girl.

On Also.Also.Also: Let Muppets, Bees and Weetzie Bat Guide You Gently Into the Week:

The Renewable Resource Award to Freakazoid:

“Good grief men are totally fucking useless” should be the new name for this section.

On Appalachian Farm Girl in the Pacific Northwest:

The Tick Check Award to Lee:

This so beautiful! You definitely convey that feeling of being in a new place and trying to make sense of it. Also, I love your expression while doing the tick check – very relatable 🙂

On Find Your Fit: The Late 20s Grandpa Who’s Ready to Feel Hot:

The Shoot Your Shot Award to Amy and Maya_H:

So what you’re saying is you’re single… / OP: Yes.

On Read Hannah Paasch’s ‘Millenneagram,’ Figure Out Who the F*ck You Are, Live Your Best Life:

The Spoonful of Sugar Award to muffin:

To understand how I excited I am about this, you have to understand that a book about the enneagram written by a wealthy christian white dude and his under-credited smart white christian lady co-author that hinges on words like sin and virtue changed my life for the better SO MUCH! I even gave it to my mom with instructions to read it with a tablespoon of salt. NOW I GET TO READ ABOUT IT IN MY OWN LANGUAGE!!!

On 50 Ways to Leave Your (Lesbian) Lover:

The @ Me Next Time Award to Elinor:

“You Can Stop Trying to Communicate More, Eleanor” is unnervingly relevant to all break ups I have ever had. Wow. Rachel has given me a lot to think about.

On No Filter: Welcome To The House Of Janelle Monáe and Lupita Nyong’o:

The Parental Leave Award to Stef and Sally:

Stef, how coincidental is it that as soon as Kehlani finally gave birth after a seemingly eternal pregnancy, you went on a leave of absence? It has to signal shenanigans, but I can’t tell if it means you’re the father of Kehlani’s baby or you ARE Kehlani’s baby and stuck in some kind of time loop.

And the Beautiful Butterfly Award to Carmen SanDiego:

Lunelle must be the opposite of Lunesta because I would never sleep


See a comment that needs to be here? @ me! I’m [at] queergirl on Autostraddle, and [at] queergirlblogs on Twitter.

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.

queer has written 124 articles for us.

  1. Thank you for this award QG
    Now I’ll spend the rest of the day singing “Come come my lady You’re my butterfly, sugar baby
    Come my lady you’re my pretty baby
    I’ll make your legs shake
    You make me go crazy”

  2. I’m honored, but Laneia should get the award.

    And I’m always find myself asking the same freaking question: How is it possible that patriarchy exists if… “Good grief men are totally fucking useless”? (yep, it works on a lot of levels)
