  1. this is great Alyssa, and made me think a lot. thanks for bringing your words and art to us – i appreciate your perspectives so much.

  2. this whole comic yes and that last line, I’m gonna be saying that a lot as a reminder, thank you

  3. Wow you are really calling it ! So powerful. You’re the catalyst for a lot of change in me. Thank you !

  4. That conflating comment… I mean, that just feels like the cherry on top of living in an ableist world. Little reminders all the time that spaces aren’t for you, that you weren’t even on anyone’s mind when things were designed or planned. Grinds me down. But your last panel gives me life—thinking of any of this as a zero sum game is so unnecessary <3
