The Comment Awards Would Never Write You Off

Good day, tax payers!

This week, while many of you were deciding how much to pay Uncle Sam/ the patriarchy Mey was reviewing Lumberjanes #1, Lizz was liveblogging Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards and Sally started building a computer!

If you were lucky enough to get a tax return, why not put some of it towards keeping sex-ed website Scarleteen afloat?

Some posts for the numerically inclined this week included how 26 A-Campers described themselves while registering, four underrated Ellen Page movies, how to eat peanut butter 48 different ways and 10 LGBT women kicking political ass around the world (not to mention Iceland’s former queer Prime Minister).

Tavi Gevinson continues to do all the things and will be playing Haddie’s girlfriend in Parenthood. Orange Is The New Black‘s second season is just around the corner and the real Alex Vause recently spoke out about her life and what she thinks of the show.

Now let’s see what the heck you guys were talking about this week!

  1. My sister had a actual human child yesterday and yet I am at least 20% more pumped about MY FIRST COMMENT AWARD. Whatever, I have been reading autostraddle for 4-5 years, and I’ve only been waiting for my nephew’s birth for, like, 9 months. Pssht. I’m gonna post this on facebook so my family can admire this (I’m sure they won’t be busy.)

    • We totally should. But wearing flannel and stripes and a hat instead of formalwear. Ooorrr in formal wear made out of flannel?

  2. yay comment award! also reading this just reminded me that i have not only peanut butter but nutella in the house. i feel like a 3-way and the only sex toy i need is a really big spoon.
