    • To be completely honest, I actually don’t! I have a very very small known “family” tree, and for the most part only have contact with my incredible ally but super heteronormative sister and her husband and kids. haha. A significant piece of my life story is that I grew up fairly alone and fairly “anonymous” (in terms of knowing my family history, or culture, etc). So falling into this amazing family unit of women who supported one another through a time that was even harder to live in and raise families as queer women is such an inspirational and lucky thing to have in my life.

      They have been amazing support systems and proof that family is defined by the love we share, and not necessarily the genes we share!

      Thanks for the kind words, friend! I am infinitely grateful. Cheers!

  1. This was great, as always! Thank you Alyssa :)

    I’ve also been wanting to say for a while, thank you autostraddle for bringing on new regular comics (foolish child + oh hey it’s alyssa *in addition to* saturday morning cartoons). They’re a really great way of absorbing information easily and they just make me really happy!!! And I’m sure they involve so so so much work in ways I can’t even imagine (I don’t do visual-art-stuff at all, not even a little bit) so I am in awe of all of your abilities to make such great stuff all the time! Thank you!!
