The Comment Awards Use the Force

This week was May 4th. May the 4th. Star Wars Day! I had a job interview that day. Now, I don’t want to say the Force was with me and jinx it or anything, but I DID just get called back for a second interview, so I’m not saying the Force was NOT with me, ya know.

Autostraddle dot com was definitely channeling its inner Yoda this week.

Stef’s dedication to keeping us updated on the life and times of Kristen Stewart is unparalleled.

The lesbian travel company Olivia and Autostraddle are joining forces into a ball of amazing that is beyond words. Does this mean bear onesies on the beach? Probs!

In the installment of “Follow Your Arrow” that I’ve been waiting for, Beth interviews Mary Tully, dog trainer. There are dogs involved. Need I say more?

Riese can’t dance, but we love her anyway.

Carrie has thoughts about her tattoo.

Erin clearly missed her calling as a network executive for TLC this week when she came up with several ideas that are way better than My Husband’s Not Gay.

  1. Bren! I was totally going to say in my comment that Xena was the original SJW but then I didn’t! You read my mind <3

  2. Always great to look back at the best comments of the week, they never fail to make me laugh all over again

  3. Y’know the first time I got a comment award I didn’t notice it because I never looked at the comment awards. I was verra new.

    This time I was just busy and considering instagram because my nails look badass and worthy of hanging with a hard femme squad or coven.
    Also my eye make up this evening enhanced my boss witch stare to 11, making old men stop staring and turn the back fuck around to mind their own damn business.


    • If ever someone deserved a comment award for a comment left on the comment awards post, this is it I think. So meta!

      • Has that not already happened?
        I could almost swear it has.

        It’s a meta world and we’re meta people.
