The Comment Awards Went To The Zoo

Hello, Wallaroos! Well, I went to the zoo today and, yes, I, an adult human, rode the little train. I refuse to apologize for it. If there was a conductor’s hat available to me, I would have worn it!

This week was Trans Awareness week! To celebrate Mey gave us a history lesson super cool trans women from back in the day, taught a master class in transgender comic book characters AND gave us a list of the best trans movies. Then Gabrielle Bellot wrote a beautiful personal essay about loving herself. I loved it and her.

There was a republican debate, which I didn’t watch because I knew Rachel would tell me the important parts and she did!

Carmen kicked off the Holigay Meet-Up Season – the true Reason for the Season. And there’s already a few set up: Thanksgiving in Indianapolis, a potluck in Seattle and crafting/ugly sweaters/hot chocolate in Manchester!

Alaina nailed what it feels like to be a college senior. As someone currently in the last semester of grad school I can totally relate to all these feelings. Amber spoke to our small town hearts – saying all the things we wished we said.

In true meta fashion, Melanie found a Hidden Gem by Deb Jannerson, one of our very own Autostraddlers. Brittani demanded to be sexualized. Mission accomplished.

Also:

“Knock, knock.”

“Who’s there.”

“Olive.”

“Olive who?”

“Olive you!”

And Comments!
