The Comment Awards Want A Group Hug

Good day, dimpled masses!

This week has been full of action from OPEN THREAD Friday to Caturday morning comics to Sunday Funday.

Though Autostraddle isn’t queer cosmo, we’re still wondering what Raven-Symoné is up to and who gets to shop organic with Ellen Page. Because #vapidfluff.

In some super great, super queer news, a federal judge ruled Idaho’s same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional and Michael Sam was drafted by the St. Louis Rams.

But wait, there’s more! DeAnne Smith advised us on  “playing it cool,” Ali taught some basic HTML that will skyrocket your commenting skills and Stephanie proved beyond a reasonable doubt that potstickers are delicious.

  1. i want to pull a mean girls and break my comment award into a bunch of little pieces and toss them out into the crowd and compliment everybody while someone tells me “it’s not really required of you to make a speech”

    i love you autostraddle

  2. I WANT TO SHOW MY MOM THIS AWARD. Literally last week I threw away all the awards I had from school (“geography master,” “smart cookie,” and the like). My mom saved them for me. Now I have the best one to replace them.

  3. WHAAAAT I almost never comment, but I got a comment award? Brb, printing this out to stick to my fridge.
