The Comment Awards Studies For Finals        

Hello Dunebuggies!

Have you signed up for the Autostraddle Weekly yet?! I have! The first one has already found its way to my inbox. And as of today I haven’t seen my inbox that happy since I figured out how to send all the Viagra ads directly to Spam.

This has possibly been The Week of the Gal Pal. Stef reminded us of 2015’s Gal Pals of the year. Speaking of gal pals…Jill Soloway (of Transparent fame) and Eileen Miles (of Eileen Miles fame) are together and here’s more Holland Taylor and Sarah Paulson.

Heather Hogan continues to blow everyone’s SAD minds. Thinking about raising kids, biological or otherwise? There’s a Roundtable on that. The Editors answered some A+ questions. We learned about some brilliant STEM Straddlers. Yay protons!

Aja told us about the best leggings and jeggings and treggings. And don’t worry. You’re not alone. I, too, had to google “treggings.”

And there were gift ideas for darn near everyone on your list…witches, cat lovers, gentlequeers.

Also dogs! And Comments!

  1. It’s entirely possibly I comment too much.

    Also, yes, Jane, that was exactly what everyone was thinking.

  2. TyLoup is very excited about his award and would like to invite you all to come and play ball with him any time.

  3. I think this is maybe the first comment award I’ve gotten that wasn’t from me saying something really embarrassing. feels good!

  4. xoxo, you guys!
    You are the very best and most supportive bunch of virtual pals a gal can have!
    And you obviously create a space safe and inspiring enough for poetry, I hope you take that as a thank you for offering that space,too, Heather.
    Again, xoxo and have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
