The Comments Awards Are Sitting on the Dock of the Bay

Hello springboks! We’ve spent seven more days traveling through the universe together so it’s time again for another roundup of Autostraddle posts and comment highlights.

This week was pretty great because SCOTUS put marriage equality on the agenda for their conference at the end of the month and “lesbian badass” Megan Smith was named Obama’s new Chief Technology Officer. Also, the Root 100 list included some of our favorites and another spectacular issue of Lumberjanes arrived.

What else? You could win an A+ membership and a Pop-Up Gay Bar might be coming near you very soon. Oh, and here are some actual stock images for menstruation and this is a post all about toeing.

Finally, we compiled more hard evidence that gays make everything better.
