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.

Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We're running the fundraiser through March 29th! We're out of immediate danger...but we had to ask...what if we could survive for longer? Will you help?

Go to our Fundraiser!

  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’ ;-)
