The Comment Awards Are The Warmest Color

​​​​​​Greetings queerific kittens! Are you having a spectacular autumn so far?

These lesbian homecoming queens are!

It’s been a week of good news with the passage of ENDA in the Senate and, of course, Jennifer Lawrence’s new haircut. Rachel wrote about the HRC’s dubious funders and global expansion and Ka(t/d)e reviewed Blue Is the Warmest Color. A tiny new episode of Tiny Pineapple is out and Carmen provided some much-needed Betty White GIF therapy.

    • Congrats!

      Confession: I was was nervous because I woke up the next day reading the comment and thought I made a female ejaculation joke. I was really talking about popular animated turtles! *wink *wink*

  1. I would like to thank the serendipity of me being the first one to comment on that article and make some jokes before someone else could beat me to them.

    I would also like to thank the term “unsuccessful heterosexual.” It’s become deeply ingrained on my psyche.

    • It’s so good! I used something similar today to explain to my aunt on “why haven’t I gotten a boyfriend yet!?!”

      Me: “Oh hi aunt how’s is everything fine, going well? Thanksgiving is coming soon :D!”

      Aunt: *Nigerian accent* “Oh yes, god is good, oooh! Eh, do you have a boyfriend? You’re getting old!”

      Me: “Oh no, I’m just a really bad at being a heterosexual!”

      Aunt: “….”

      Me: “Hello?”

      Aunt: “GOD IS GOOD!”

      Me: “Yes, so can I talk to Samantha?”

      Winter is coming….

  2. Oh sweet, first comment award!! Scratching that off the bucket list, woot!

    I’d like to thank JLaw for getting an amazing haircut, Autostradlle, and of course Lesbian Jesus. Through her, most reasonable requests are possible.
