The Comment Awards Wish They Were At A-Camp

If you’re reading this, it means you’re probably not at A-Camp. Intern Chelsey and I feel your pain. We’ve spent the week listening to the How to Be Alone Playlistsighing at Instagram and training for the weirdo apocalypse that leaves the fate of Autostraddle dot com in our hands. Let’s hope it never comes to that.

Luckily our intrepid writers prepared plenty of new content before leaving for the snowy slopes of Mt. Feelings. A bunch of posts are even about actual A-camp activities! Why not play along at home and reenact them with your cat or something? (But not Bondage 101, please not Bondage 101). Has there ever been a better time to put on a boi scout shirt, drink some whiskey and do Perler bead art in your underwear? Certainly not!

  1. All of these awards are so well deserved.

    Not being on the mountain is the hardest thing! The snow! Did you see the snow?!

    • When I saw all of the photos of Snow Camp, I turned to my girlfriend and we said in unison: “They’re obviously not Canadians.”

  2. I will make it to A Camp one day. I will! For now, I’ll just dry my tears with my cardigan sleeve. But seriously, can I be that filling in that plaid flannel sandwich?
