The Comment Awards Have Mia Hamm Above Their Beds

 width=

Hi there, cats and kittens! You hanging in there? We made it through the week!

This week, in our continued takeover of all sci-fi franchises since Ghostbusters, Doctor Who is a woman!

Awwwwww, love is not a lie.

Kayla’s recapping The Bold Type!

Nora talked about bodies, and the clothes we put on them. So many feels.

In a fandom? Need to carry your shit? There’s a fanny pack for that.

Here are the long and winding career paths of Autostraddle writers! I think my biggest takeaway from this was that Laneia once quit a job by walking away on her break, something I still aspire to do.

Need some swimwear? Shannon’s got you covered!

Dear teenage Erin: You might be kinda gay.

And then there were your comments!


On All 101 Disney Channel Original Movies Ranked by Lesbianism:

The Yummy Mummy Award to thatottergirl:

Wow, now all I want to do hang out in the Egyptology wing of the Met Museum wearing a “Mommis not Mummies” T-shirt and see who flirts with me.

On Ellen Page Is Apparently Dating This Dancer Emma Portner Now, Hmm, Ok:

The Modern Dance Award to Michou, Stef and Snaelle:

The dance is so frantic. I dont know anything about dance but so much arms

On “Hollywood Lesbians”: This 1994 Interview Book Valiantly Attempted To Out Over 31 Legendary Ladies:

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Rolls Award to Linnea:

Also loved “sisterly roll” as code for lesbian sex ? Patsy Kelly on Mae West: “…you can’t tell me a nymphomaniac like her’s never had one sisterly roll in that famous bed of hers…”

On Analyzing My Childhood Bedroom Posters As A Profoundly Gay Woman:

The Wannabe Award to Kristana and Saga:

Was the Spice Girls poster trying to get you to tell yourself what you want, what you really really want?

And the Bend It Like Mia Award to Linnea:OMG. The shirtless Mia Hamm poster is such a cultural touchstone. I remember at least 3 girls in my cabin AT BIBLE CAMP (?) putting up that poster over their bunks during our weeklong stay. ?

On AM/PM: Caffeine and Twitter:

The Powers of Deduction Award to Alaina:

wow, are you a writer? your morning routine screams, “WRITER!”

On 11 Fanny Packs for Almost Every Fandom:

The Two Packs, No Waiting Award to Gilbert:

Now I am a lover of bumbags because all the important stuff is so easily to hand. But, that doesnt mean I don’t need to be carrying all my other essentials in my rucksack. I’m not saying it’s stylish, but if you want to look like a queer scout leader about town, then the duo is always an option.

On Pop Culture Fix: Does This Mean Doctor Who Is a Lesbian?

The Birds and the Bees Award to cleo and Carmen SanDiego:

Bees don’t lie. Carmen: They're like hips in that aspect

On Legendary WNBA Superstar Sue Bird Is Gay and Also Dating Megan Rapinoe:

The Curb Your Lezthusiasm Award to johnnie and Chandra:

I am filled with happiness, slightly hazy with something I can only describe as wistful lustiness, and also screaming. Someone please name this emotion so that I can classify it and carry on. Chandra: Lezthusiasm?

And the Checkin’ It Twice Award to Jessi:

I feel like the universe is taking my favorite athlete list from childhood and having them come out. If only I had known then that I had this power.

  1. OMG! I’m officially a Spice Girls Wannabe! I get to be Baby Spice – no one else gets to or else… or else I’ll continue this bagel thread for an endless eternity… because everyone knows cinnamon/sugar and colored sprinkle bagels are where it’s at.

  2. me just getting home from work: “woah! 89 comments on the comment awards thread?? Let’s see what’s going on in here…. hmmm… it only looks like 10 or 12 comments…. OH @carmensandiego resumed the pineapple on pizza debate.” THATS where all the comments are coming from.

  3. Whenever I see a post with an unusually high comment count, and it’s not a biphobic flame war or lost MRA trolls, I assume it must be a bunch of Christo-fascists getting so irate about Easter eggs that they turn into dancing hotdogs.

    I’m beyond delighted that in this case it’s because of a serious community investigation into bagels.
