The Comment Awards Ate All The Leftover Candy

Don’t forget to vote, Americans. Non-Americans, don’t forget to remind your American friends to vote! This week I had to go to early voting because we screwed up our mail-in ballots. Carrie accidentally signed mine and I signed hers. Co-habitation problems.

Things went much smoother this week on Autostraddle dot com.

Molly went to a Halloween carnival in West Hollywood and took pictures. There’s at least one dog in a costume, which is like my kryptonite.

Speaking of Halloween… there were blood feelings, Erin met a ghost and Carrie reimagined Me Before You as a horror film.

In perhaps the best break the Clinton campaign has had all year, Carrie goes canvassing for Hillary.

You muppets described yourselves. And it was everything I thought it would be.

Also, Horoscopes! And comments!

  1. YESSS MAKE IT HAPPEN. I would also like to draw attention to Linds’ equally great idea for a roundtable column where people submit photos of how they interpret a given gender presentation. I would be so into both of these!

  2. aaaah thank you so much, I feel honoured!! this was one of my few first comments (I’m a lurking straddler since 2012 when the girl I loved recommended to me, a babygay)and I was actually joking wirh a friend yesterday “maybe I’ll get a comment award” and here it is :D thank you!
