The Comment Awards Are Trick-Or-Treating As Marty McFly

Comment Awards Halloween

Trick or treat, babes! The Comment Awards pup dressed up for Halloween – did you?

Every single year, I dust off my favorite brown leather boots, the ones with the million yards of laces and the holes worn into the soles, the ones that make me feel like my very favorite version of myself, and I build my witch costume from the ground up. I walk around in my pointy hat and my fingerless gloves and I do my very best to believe in my own inherent power. I love this holiday! There’s so much that is scary in the world, but not nearly enough days in the year when we have license to be whatever we can dare to dream up. Happy Halloween, my loves!

This week, Heather wrote about Alex P. Keaton, Jo from The Facts of Life, and some of her other very first soft butch fashion icons.

Holly brought us some basic butch fashions for autumn at the brewery.

Sally watched MTV’s True Love and True Lies, and guess what: it’s gay!

Jourdain introduced us to Spiral, a new thriller where the scariest thing of all are the blind spots of unsupportive white partners.

In a truly ambitious undertaking, the TV team ranked every single one of the 111 sex scenes in The L Word. Personally I am still scarred by Bette and Tina’s angry sex from the season 1 finale!

This was so beautiful, from Valerie Anne: Haunting of Hill House’s Spooky Lesbian Empath Helped Me Understand My Own Ghosts.

And KT was out here asking the most important question of all – which Castro twin is Tegan, and which is Sara?

And then there were your comments!

On Monsters & Mommis: “Good Manners” Is a Tribute to Queer Motherhood:

The Two Roads Award to shewasnice:

I don’t like scary movies and won’t be watching this one, but I appreciate getting to read about it and your thoughts on parenting. My wife did bank her gametes and we tried to make a baby but it didn’t work. Now we have a house full of shared kiddos from hard places, and I love them, I am grateful that they are in my life and I get to do parenting. We have one more possible try at making a baby but I don’t know.
