Apparently only virgins can publish books now

Check out this clip of TV newsblob/patriarchal minion Diane Sawyer questioning Madonna’s 1st Amendment rights. Why is Sawyer trying to keep a sister down? Because 15 years ago Madonna published a saucy coffee table book depicting simulations of human sex acts, that’s why. Which of course completely invalidates whatever claim to fully human status Madonna …

Pimpetarians of the Great Northwest

Great news for guilt-ridden pornsick knobs and the soy-addled hot babes who give’em lap dances: the vegan strip club. At this Portland, OR depot for human degradation, the strippers don’t wear leather, and the menu features fajitas made with fake meat. However, according to a writer who attended the grand opening, tofurkey wasn’t exactly the …

Bacon, I bid you farewell

Back in the pre-blog Age of Darkness, when I was a callow young feminist in a vacuum who did not enjoy the instantaneous policing of my views by thousands of invisible critics, numerous facets of my worldview were as yet embryonic. If a facet can be said to be embryonic, which I think it probably …

I’d like to thank everyone who wrote in alerting me to I Blame the Patriarchy’s having been namechecked in the New York Review of Books. I got the word while on some grim business up in North Dallas. Naturally I was interested to see upon which of my blogular morsels the reigning English-language guardians of …

My main man

I do not have to be asked twice to plaster all over the internet photos of my new boyfriend Stanley. I snapped this one of us with my cell phone seconds before he stuck his nose out and lipped it out of my hand. Stanley is in many respects much more interesting than patriarchy-blaming, not …

How cheap is your love?

Original image, sans caption, from PajamaGram dot com. The annual capitalist pig run-up to Valentine’s Day leaves a particularly repellent aftertaste on the Twisty palate this year, so I will take a moment out of my idyllic agrarian schedule (did I mention that I bought a horse? And that I am considering dropping out of …
