I am a queer coparenting mama to Dickens Jr. Doodler by day, 911 dispatcher by night. All my favorite shows look better on Tumblr. I am two years and 450K words deep into constructing a fanfic called Ages and I'm never giving up on it. Bering & Wells.

Love this comic so much.I feel so seen as a queer parent who also isn’t down with asserting dominance over my kid and most def also is over explaining my queer bona fides to anyone. esp straight parents I don’t like. Ty for this <3

Love this. Also hard second on not talking to me when it’s hot out.
I loved this. Maybe don’t be an ass, Perfect Mom! But on a serious note, I’ve given up trying to correct/educate/enlighten bigots. It just places the burden on the oppressed and I choose not to engage. Not everyone has the time/energy/inclination to spin their wheels in the mud, when there is life out there to be lived.
