The Comment Awards Wanna Be Where the People Are


Hi there, friend! You know when days are good for no particular reason? It’s summery here (sorry, East Coasters), A-Camp is less than a month away, and I’ve made the decision to never, ever taste Cola flavored La Croix! Things are lookin’ up.

Speaking of camp, this Campership comes with airfare, it’s from one of my very favorite organizations, and the deadline is tonight at 11:59 PM PST! You know that little voice inside you that’s telling you to go for it? GO FOR IT!

This week, Reneice baked a double chocolate banana bread so decadent and perfect looking that I have craved it every night since I first laid eyes on it.

Rachel answered a complex question with so much insight and grace, it knocked my socks off: what do you do when you find yourself falling for a man?

Queer crosswords: You know you want ’em. (I’ve got my set already and omg, they are BRILLIANT.)

Valerie Anne wrote about Legends of Tomorrow, and how it’s become one of the best queer shows on TV! I’d better start watching.

THIS IS AN L-WORD STYLE CHART OF SUFFRAGETTES WHO SLEPT TOGETHER. It is also so much more. Well done, Sister Sally.

And then there were your comments!

On FRIDAY OPEN THREAD: What Cartoon Turned You Gay?

The Dinglehoppered Award to Mikayla, Mey and Diana:

Oh my god, so many. Sailor Jupiter, obvs, and Anastasia, and Tzipporah from Prince of Egypt, and Esmeralda, and Kida from Atlantis, and Katara, and also this specific bit of The Little Mermaid: [gif of the Little Mermaid looking sexi AF on land]. DISNEY HAS A LOT TO ANSWER FOR.

Mey: That part turned me trans. / Diana: Seriously Mey, is there any trans girls who aren’t like totally obsessed with the little mermaid, She gave up her singing voice to be the real her! As someone who loved Karaoke before transition that one really touches me!

On Boob(s On Your) Tube: Jane the Virgin’s Petra and JR Are Just So Damn In Love:

The Melts In Your Mouth Award to Rous Rose:

Just in case anyone missed one of the MOST IMPORTANT moments in TV history: Thank you for the JtV recap, Heather! I agree with everything you’ve written. It’s completely irresponsible and downright dangerous to get invested in Petramos, but let’s be honest here: I’ve been a hopeless case from the moment Rosario Dawson walked on screen.

On Baopu #45: Body Issue:

The True Beauty Award to Carmen SanDiego:

It’s a beautiful thing to be proud of something that has been used in attempts to shame you

And the PYA (Public Yucca Announcement) Award to Aliya:

1.) Wow I’m gay 2.) Pls don’t climb Joshua Trees they have a very shallow and fibrous root system and can fall over if they’re in drought conditions! This is because they’re not a tree but a tree-like growth form of a yucca-like plant, which is more like a grass. #themoreyouknow 3.) She cute tho

On Also.Also.Also: Bend It Like Beckham (Still), Queer Kids in 4-H and Other Stories for Your Week:

The Best Place Award to Kristana:

I’m just going through Jameela Jamil’s instagram and twitter feeds, and I’m finding so much stuff. [Meme of man sitting at table with sign asking you to convince him of things. Text reads "Tahani Al-Jamil is a lesbian; change my mind.] Jameela Jamil had posted the image to her instagram.

And on British Suffragette History: Come for the Democracy, Stay for the Lesbian Drama:

  1. So you’re telling me U2 named an album after Yucca? One of the best rock albums of all time is Yucca

  2. QG your awards and titles are perfect as ever! I definitely detect a more emotional selection here than usual, is this 420-induced or just joy at the start of spring?

    Also, changing my name to Sister Sally forever.
