The Comment Awards Are Using Dental Dams

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

Hi, doves and raptors! I think the seasonal wildfire smoke is finally clearing outside my window, which means I’m feeling fine! I wish you blue skies and cool streams for the days ahead.

This week, Kayla brought us the most niche, perfect Autostraddle quiz ever.

Ro would like you to use a dental dam! Dental dams are hot!

Well, I loved this. Change Is Magic: On Cooking and Bodies.

The L Word: Generation Q is coming right along, and Riese’s recaps are SO good, I feel like I’ve traveled back in time to the golden age of the recap, like, ten whole years ago!

Kayla’s throwing a dinner party, and we’re all invited. 

Listen, it’s not gossip to say that Elliot Page and Mae Martin look very cute hanging out together, and getting matching tattoos together, just that sort of thing!

Apparently I’ve been flirting via Instagram and I didn’t know it?

Bless Valerie Anne for her Supergirl recaps, and also for this feature image of Kara and Alex, which I honestly and inexplicably thought was Meredith Grey and Lexie???

And then there were your comments!


On The L Word Generation Q Episode 203 Recap: Luck Be a Ladykiller:

The All’s Well that Ends Well Award to Mina:

Riese, this is very specific but your intro made me laugh so hard that I went to slap my actual literal knee and almost broke my Gameboy in the process because I had to fully sit it down in my lap to focus on your recap but also forgot I was even playing it because, again, very funny intro. Cannot believe the OG series exists in any concrete way sometimes. Feels fever dreamy. (Also I multi-task but not well, do not @ me)

On Personality Quiz: Which Kayla Kumari Tweet From When She Was Closeted Are You?

The Hello to You (Leather) Award to Serena:

I got “ultimate birthday party theme idea: michelle branch + leather” Which is somehow incredibly accurate for my closeted self in that era. Also bless you for the option “painting my room sounds like too much work,” I felt very seen. I need to see the rest of the possible answers!!

And the #boobs Award to Leigh:

Definitely something I would’ve posted / laughed at / thought about in 2009 …and also today. Honestly timeless

On Change Is Magic: On Cooking and Bodies:

The Magic Award to Ally:

A beautiful, happy read “Any sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from magic.” Tofu bacon with liquid smoke is definitely magic. Thank you for sharing

On Also.Also.Also: Elliot Page & Mae Martin Got Matching Tattoos, So UMMM 👀:

The Generations Award to bob and Ally:

That piece on “femme” was excellent. It’s so hard to explain what coming out in the 90s was like. You felt like you had to choose between extremes. Great for some, not great for others. But with the “femme” label came passing and erasure. The inclusivity of today is great, but the language is so different.

On No Filter: Have You Taken the Time Today to Think About How Stunning Beanie Feldstein Is?

The Small Gods Award to M.:

I cannot believe the cat did a hidden camera thing on Cynthia Nixon. I love cats. Cats are superior to us humans in every way.

And on JoJo Siwa and Her Girlfriend Kylie Want To Tell You Absolutely Everything About Their Courtship:

The Rainbow Power Award to Rosehips:

1. This is extrememly adorable. 2. While reading this I realized that Jojo would be a perfect Rainbow Brite if they ever do a live action reboot.

And the Two Kinds of People Award to EJ and pepitagoya:

EJ: Everytime I watch anything about Jojo Siwa and her talking about being queer, I feel like a proud aunt. / pepitagoya: this is going to CRASH AND BURN so hard.

  1. The Two Kinds of People Award made me giggle-snort. That whole comment section displayed the dichotomy.

    I’d like to be team proud aunt but sadly, my natural inclination is more like team crash and burn.
