The Comment Awards Summitted Everest

Hello, Bright Shining Perfect Humans!

It’s Friday and you all know what that means…BAGELS! Just kidding…COMMENT AWARDS! But if you also happen to have a bagel, congratulations. Clearly, you are winning life.

This week on Autostraddle dot com we covered so much. Riese did the impossible and made the Republican debate something I’d actually want to read about. They fought over financial matters and also who gets the last piece of pizza or something. Riese wrote, as only Riese can, about paying writers on the interwebs.

Donna defined diblings for us. Spoiler Alert: it has nothing to do with Chinese food. Molly went on a European vacation, had a significantly better time that Clark and Ellen Griswold did AND documented the whole thing with her gorgeous photography. Speaking of photography, each and every comment on this piece about lesbian sex featured in stock photography is just golden.

Jasika wants you to have a DIY Christmas, which sounds like just the best kind of Christmas. Megan gave us a reason to be fully functional adults by turning it into a game. Finally a reason to get up on the morning – 800 points and a 5x bonus! Ali helped us decide to pull the trigger on putting a Chromebook on our Holigay Wishlist.

Janet Mock got married!

And I don’t know about you, but the highlight of my week was meeting Stacy, Heather Hogan’s Human. Cutest.couple.ever.

  1. I read “Veterinarian Ruby” as “Vegetarian Ruby.” Just wanted ya’ll to know. I feel like they would both come with a rescued puppy accessory, so that’s fine.

    • Vegetarian Ruby comes with a garden hoe and a stand of kale to sell at the WeHo Farmer’s Market (sold separately)!
