The Comment Awards Are Snowed In

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

Good morning, sparklers! This morning I am going to do something this California Queer Girl never does, and drive through SNOW. Wish me all of the luck and traction!

This week, Jada made the case for… 24/7 Christmas music?

Never seen Sex and the City, but need to get your Che on? Heather’s got you covered.

For the quiz, Kayla invented an entire ouvre of fake gay Hallmark holiday movies and I want to watch all of them?

It’s that time again! Time for end-of-the-year round-ups! First off, we’ve got the Team’s best and worst TV characters of the year.

Speaking of lists, Casey is here with the best queer books of 2021! My library holds list just got SO long.

And then there were your comments!

On “And Just Like That…” Miranda and Che Get Their Funeral Flirt On:

The Language of Manatees Award to Emilygoesoutside:

A silverback is a gorilla, definitely not a bear. Is this gonna be a L Word beluga whale is a manatee situation??

On Holigay Quiz: What Entirely Made Up Gay Hallmark Christmas Movie Are You?

The ♫ Fiiiiiive Viiiibraaaaatorrrrrs ♩ Award to Am I Ginger:

I got Twelve Dykes of Christmas and I beg someone with more musical talent than me to come up with the lyrics.

On Autostraddle’s Favorite and Least Favorite Lesbian, Bisexual and Trans TV Characters of 2021:

The Justice for Gigi Award to Em Drobs:

God I love these lists, and I DIED at how often Gigi shows up on here! Justice for Gigi, and agreed with Kayla that in Season Three (if we get one), may she finally get a partner who likes to communicate as much as she does! Maybe they can cross-over with Twenties and she can date Idina?

On “Yellowjackets” Episode 105 Recap: Seances, Blood, and Gay Makeouts Against Trees:

The Red String Murder Board to Caitlin:

also may i express appreciation for the collective red-string-murder-board the comment section is every week? i love seeing everyone’s theories and what details did or didn’t jump out!

On It’s Time To Go Back To The Queer Future!

The QSAT Award to Arvan12 and Sally:

also may i express appreciation for the collective red-string-murder-board the comment section is every week? i love seeing everyone’s theories and what details did or didn’t jump out!

On Candace Parker Is Gay and Gay Married With a Gay Pregnant Wife:

The Harold Award to Chandra (and none for you, Glenn Coco):

Wow good to see Harold finally learned about lesbians

And on Autostraddle’s Favorite Lesbian, Bisexual, and Queer TV Couples of 2021:

The Your Amity Award to Rooty Poot:

Last year, I reconnected with one of my brothers after not talking for a decade (family is uber-religious and I’m uber-gay) under the condition that I let him and his wife decide when to tell their children about why I’m still estranged from the rest of the family. My nephew (now 12) and I have been inseparable ever since and I’m not a fan of kids other than in very short doses so he’s pretty special. Last month, he begged me to watch The Owl House so we could talk about it like we do other shows that he recommends most of which I only watch because his enthusiasm makes me happy. We talked extensively about the magic (his first love) and Gus (who he looks like) then he said pretty enthusiastically, “AND Luz and Amity get together! Can you believe it? Do you have a Amity?” *insert shocked face* Apparently, he’d overheard his parents talking about me, and at that time, he already knew Luz liked Amity so he put 2 and 2 together. I have yet to talk to my brother about the conversation but oh well. So yeah…thanks, Heather for hitting me in the feels. Also… Yes to Gigi all day, every day, and twice on Saturdays, Sundays, and national holidays. And a final hell yes, to Wildmoore (sidenote: I hope Batwoman can pave the way for other queer POCs to see their relationships be represented on a primetime or daytime show as well).
