The Comment Awards Battens Down the Hatches

Hello Stormchasers!

Hurricane Hermine is headed our way and no one — not the governor, the local news channels, the radio folks — no one seems to agree on just how to pronounce “Hermine.” A surprising number of people seem to think this storm is a character from Harry Potter.

But everyone, the governor included, agrees that Autostraddle dot com blew us all away this week.

You say potato, Carrie says pota-no. I’m totes on Team Tater.

Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butcher are funny lesbians on a funny show about funny lesbians.

Life’s not all fun and card games — except when it is.

Abby, world famous Dad and Riese’s fiancée, is an aspiring scholar and model with some pretty sweet looks for back-to-school time. Didn’t think leggings could be butch? Think again.

  1. I mean, nineties tv had me believing that lesbian sex was either brushing one another’s hair, or casting spells together – so it’s not that far fetched to believe it’s holding cats together and saying ‘I am pleased’ ;-)
