The Comment Awards Are Trying to Tell Us Something

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

Hi there, fireflies! Is it sweater season yet where you live? How I long for sweater season!

You poor, unfortunate souls! Em knows which queer-coded Disney villain you are.

And then there were your comments!


On 15 of the Most Chaotically Bisexual Things I Did as a Bisexual 15-Year-Old:

The Game of Passwords Award to Hannah:

When I was 11 I made my computer password bisexual… cue to my mom needing it for something, me telling her red faced that my password was bisexual, followed by a long pause… after which she asked me if I was bi, which I vehemtly denied, and she said “Good I don’t think you are either.” Joke’s on her, I came out by publishing a collection of love poems about another woman. She didn’t doubt me then 🤣

On Introducing the A+ Discount Marketplace!

The Perky! Award to Courtney and Sage:

I really like this idea! Out of all the memberships I’ve ever had for websites/podcasts/etc., A+ is by far the best at continually evolving with fun new perks. The cost of a membership was worth it to me back when I first subscribed, but even more so now. Thank you Nico!

On Things Change, but High Waisted Skinny Jeans Are Forever:

The Long Bitch Award to Mary:

I am wearing Levi’s high-waisted black skinny jeans AS WE SPEAK. They are the ultimate long bitch fashion statement. Loved this whole article and the pictures!

On 7 Pressing Questions I Have for Myself After Moving:

The Glove Lunch Award to Theodora:

I knew you owned a lot of gloves from instagram but I totally assumed it was a Hill House thing?? Were you the original Glove Gay?

And the Phantom of the Bruising Award to bloodmadeofcoffee:

Also just moved and can confirm that the leg bruises just…appear? Out of nowhere?

On Hulu’s “Reboot” Is the Most Hilarious Lesbian Chaos I’ve Ever Seen:

The Greer Hive Award to Dkc2017:

Yessssss. Judy Greer. A dumpster fire in the best possible way and with Judy Greer (Trixie, for those in the know). Did I mention Judy Greer?

On This Bluetooth Receiver Changed My Life, Now I Can Silence the Sports Men in My Home:

The Layers Award to Mary:

This is a great review! Not a product I need since I live by myself, but the magic of Autostraddle is how much I truly enjoy reading reviews of products I don’t need or recaps of TV shows I’m probably never gonna watch, because it’s never JUST a review or a recap.

And on How to Rest:

The Breathe Into It Award to A:

My shoulders dropped just reading this. Thanks for acknowledging the myriad ways it can be hard for us to find/make this time!
