The Comment Awards Would Never Abandon Their Gay Cats

Hello winners! I’m so happy to see you! Especially since I’m fresh out of a two hour meeting about Federal tax compliance. It didn’t even include snacks. How rude. Luckily things are much more exciting here in the ‘straddleverse. This week Autostraddle was nominated for a GLAAD award in the “Best Blog” category for the second year in a row! Then Riese and Laneia also shared the website’s origin story that led to the creation of Autostraddle as we know it (trigger warning: it involves IFC).

Chelsea continued give terrible Lifetime movies the recap treatment. This week’s selection was the murder-bore Lizzie Borden Took An Axe. Then Ali tried to make sense of Dogecoin and Rachel explained why The X-Files is everything. We also shared alternative names for the Sunday’s massive sporting event which can not be named and found out that it’s hard to be a gay cat in Nigeria.
