What Day Is It? Oh! It’s Hey Did You See That Comment Friday!

Hello my little gayelles! I think last week I forgot to read like 6 articles for comments, so I’m sorry. There was probably something funny in there that I missed. But also this week I accidentally read 3 older articles and gave terracottatoes an award for something she had won an award for last week, so. Also sorry terracottatoes, I had to get rid of that one.

This week we got baked with Autostraddle for the breakfast edition! Bklyn Boihood is back to talk about being queer, or being not queer. Riese’s friend Krista gives the best breakup/life advice you might ever read, so go print that out, and Riese herself writes a beautiful article about Britney Spears, which you should read even if you don’t like her (Britney, not Riese. Everyone likes Riese).

Make sure to catch up on last weekend’s Dinah Shore shenanigans , and watch The Real L Word parody part 2! Which I haven’t seen yet but am 100% confident that it is hilarious.

I hear Trish and Elizabeth will be on Oprah. Oprah already bought Trish a rainbow. The next time you see a rainbow, it might be Trish’s. If you follow the rainbow to it its source and you see it erupting from a girl’s mouth, you just found Trish.

Good stuff!
My band at the time got to be the support act for them for most of that year so I got to see them play every night for months. There were a lot of moments where I just thought ‘man, these guys are doing all the right things and making a lot of queer kids feel a zillion times better about their lives’.
Other times I just snuck into their dressing room and drank their beers.

Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.

Emily has written 100 articles for us.


  1. I think that the winner of these should receive a free AS t-shirt!! If THAT was the case I’d try to be A LOT wittier than I already am!! ROTFLMBO! :)

  2. Why do the same people win all the time?? Are you ladies supply the booze to the AS team???

    • i try and give as many awards as i can to people who have never won, or don’t win very often, but the people who win usually comment on every single article so it’s just more likely that they’ll say something funny/witty/smart/whatever, you know?

      i think a few new people won this week though. also they probably don’t read this anyway, but i hope ami does because i’m still wondering about the lesbian sex school.

      • sorry, ran out of coupons two weeks ago. we’re now giving out rainchecks on the coupons on the booze.

  3. Woo I feel like I should keep a little gold star record for every time I get a comment award and show it off to all my internet friends.



  5. pretty stoked that i got the The This One Time, At Band Camp Award, because i have an ACTUAL band camp story…. ;)

  6. i would like to go to lesbian school plzty. i feel like i should’ve been informed of this when I came out. Like, hooray, youre gay, have a party, here’s some cake, and you’ll be spending the summer at lesbian camp.

    • This, please.

      A lesbian summer camp would be so helpful! I’m literally the only lesbian I know, irl. And I live in Southern California! I don’t even…

      Plus, shenanigans could occur. And I love me some shenanigans.

      • There’s Camp Betty in Sydney, which is an alternative/radical sexuality & gender camp in June, does that count? It would be winter down here though.

  7. MY COMMENT AWARD IS MOSTLY FOR TERRACOTTATOES BUT I’M STILL PUMPED. My life as an AS community members has risen to a new level.

  8. I fail to understand how my Whiskey comment made it through the screening process, but my VEGEMITE one didn’t. Are you all just Vegemite haters or what? I’ll resist caps-lock for now, because my mother raised me better than that.

    NOTHING and I mean NOTHING beats Vegemite toast for brekky and yet no Aussies were consulted in the making of this list? I smell conspiracy. And also yeast..considering that’s what Vegemite mostly of….. (joke).

    • Ok, seriously, I think I have a drinking crush on you. I want to get together and booze it up with you. How can we make this happen?

      I’ll buy you some Vegemite to sweeten the deal.

  9. just wanna inform all you lesbos who are jealous of my sex schooling….
    normally it works in my favour (sorta like a resume i can cite i guess haha)
    but this weekend a friend mentioned it to a girl i was with at the bar and she got SO INTIMIDATED she almost didnt take me home
    was not good.
