The Comment Awards Learns To Live Again

Hello Mountain-queers!

We’re all safely back down the mountain by now I guess. I’m gonna be real. The only thing the real world has over Mt. Feelings is the ability to use as much toilet paper as one wants. I’m sparing no squares these days. I DID miss two things from everyday life while at 8,000 feet… my wife and my Autostraddle.

This week Heather Hogan was on fire, ranking ghosts and trolling guys on airplanes.

True story: I learned about Snapchat less than two weeks ago at LAX with Abby. I’m still not sure I get it, but Ali goes a long way in getting us all there.

Riese found out what fake scientists from the ‘50s thought about femmes.

The local radio station of my youth played a game called “Poetry or Country Music?” Carolyn took things to the next level with a sex toy or craft beer quiz.

Orange Is the New Black comes out in a week! There’s some stuff we’ve already found out. Spoiler alert!

Erin, in true Erin fashion, watched Better Than Chocolate for you.

Also new people! And Comments!

  1. Heather Hogan’s sister is an A+ subscriber. That’s some adorable family support right there.

    • Well, Jenn is also a queer lady herself, and an AS contributor, so I would hope she’d have an A+ subscription! Have you not read her Grey’s Anatomy recaps!? Because you’re defs missing out!

      • I’d seen her comment on here before, but didn’t realize she wrote recaps too. I’m not a Grey’s fan, so I skipped the recaps. :/

  2. Guys I’ve been super busy with my dayjob so I’ve missed a lot of articles, and thus the ever glorious comments. I just read this and I am so delighted you are all doing lesbian Jesus’ work. It lifted my heart, truly. Queer Girl I want to read the rest of that fic!
