The Gay Flirting Award to xx:

Holigay Quiz: Which Christmas Monster Should You Date?

And the Fightmaster Award to Cecily:

As the only Grey’s Anatomy fan (18 seasons, BABY!) who actually likes Amelia as a character, I actually *screamed* when Amelia and Kai kissed, and not just because E.R. Fightmaster is near the top of my list of queer lust objects. Okay, maybe a little bit because of that.

And on There’s Something About Bookish Men I Can Step On:

  1. Love the positive Under the Christmas Tree comments. I read a whole piece about that scene in Slate, and there was only complaining! No joy at all. I’m so glad to have Heather and some other AS comments with the correct opinion that it was fantastic.

  2. autistic testare essential resources for comprehending and helping people with the condition. These tests enable prompt interventions, individualized assistance, and educational approaches catered to the particular needs of each individual through early diagnosis. We can build an inclusive society that loves people with autism and supports them, enabling them to realize their full potential, by increasing awareness, facilitating better access to diagnostic tools, and fostering inclusivity.
