The Comment Awards Know Love Lives In Paradise

Hello, my tangerines and kumquats! So much amazing content from so many rad new voices showed up this week on Autostraddle dot com, I hardly knew what to do with myself!

Claire reminded us that the 1999 Julia Roberts movie Runaway Bride was an absolute feast of lesbian fashion.

KT matched up the 2020 Democratic Presidential hopefuls with the Indigo Girls song that best captures their campaign.

Carmen saw Hustlers, and it stole her heart forever.

Allie gave us A Beginner’s Guide to Establishing a Queer Houseplant Utopia, which is extremely relevant to my interests! (I am parent to several plants, none of which seem to be…doing very well.)

Elly reminded us that it’s not always healthy to tell our crushes how we feel about them.

  1. I was on strike for the past two weeks and I absolutely could not keep up with all the wonderful shenanigans on Autostraddle ! Picketing is not compatible with screen time I tell you. Thank goodness we settled. Now I can get back to my regular routine starting with the Comment Awards, yes !

  2. This comment also made me terrifyingly aware that I was in the 6th grade 18 YEARS AGO. My white fluffy bucket hat would have been a legal adult by now

  3. Thank youuu tbh I have not had any success sensuously opening soft eggs, so this is as close as I’ll get to participating in S.E.C. Crying into my food, however, is very relatable! <3 to Annelise for the inspiration.
