Foolish Child #34: Foolish Child Returns!

Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. And support from readers like you keeps the majority of our site free for everyone. Still, 99.9% of our readers do not support. Autostraddle is fundraising right now to keep our site funded through January 2022. Will you join our community of readers in helping to keep us around?

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.

  2. So I never dreamed of finding my own community, people I could just be myself around because they would really get me and they’d even share my preferences, and I wouldn’t have to explain or defend or endure weird looks or bigotry or teasing or anything, but wow, here y’all are! I refer, of course, to my love of pineapple on pizza.
