Growing Up

Editor's Note: An earlier version of this comic used the word “gyp.” On May 1, a reader brought to our attention that “gyp” comes from “gypsy,” a racial slur whose origins come from offensive stereotypes about the Roma people. We’re sorry we didn’t catch the slur earlier and allowed it to go live on the site. When we reached out to the author to make her aware of the word’s origins, she immediately rewrote the punchline.


Lauren has this to say in addition:

"Dear Tooth Fairies and Tooth Fairy lovers everywhere: I want to thank that person for the care that their note showed for my comic, for the magazine, and for readers. Wild Greens is a special community for me, and I’m honored to be a part of it. I’m grateful for this opportunity to learn something I didn’t know." - Lauren
