The Comment Awards Loves a Challenge

This week there was a Fall Festival at school complete with a cotton candy machine and life-size Jenga. I had candy corn AND popcorn. My two favorite kinds of corn.

This week on Autostraddle dot com Rachel watched the debate AGAIN so that we wouldn’t have to. That Rachel, always falling on the grenade for us.

Maree found some interesting socks that may complement your Halloween costume. Speaking of socks…Tegan and Sara socks are a thing that exist in the world. As a self-described sock connoisseur, I appreciate both of these articles.

If you can’t make it to your local queer Halloween Party, Kayla breaks down what you’ll be missing.
