Thank You

A friend gave me these flowers for my birthday. I am so grateful for my friends!

I have complained a lot about being canceled since 2017. But I have also been supported by you this whole time. Some of you send direct donations. Some of you buy my merch. Some of you donate to my Patreon or the Heterodorx podcast. Some of you send kind messages. Some of you recommend my work to others.

Many of you go out of your way to support me for the exact same reasons others cancel me. You are awesome.

Your generosity is as real as the cancelations I struggle to shed my bitterness over. It’s a miracle, it has kept my going, it keeps me going, it gives me hope as well as material support. Like many humans I can get caught up in the bad without sufficiently acknowledging the good. The good, your good, has been very good. Thank you.

  1. You’re welcome, Nina! Happy belated birthday! As a birthday present, I’ll tell you that I’ve been slipping copies of your Nina’s Adventures comic, each with one of the “Adult Human Weirdo” stickers I had printed up tucked inside like a bookmark, into the Little Free Library in front of the insufferably queer coffee shop near my house for months now. Also, I’ve recommended “Seder-Masochism” to several friends. I dunno; it makes *me* feel better about this whole mess anyway.
