Spinster aunt cries for help

It has been brought to my attention that IBTP has become infested with much adware or spyware or chumpware of some sort. Several blamers have written in to observe that this proliferation of tracking cookies makes it look like I am “monetizing” the site. I assure you, this could not be further from the truth. …

Fan mail from another flounder saddens spinster aunt

I am so sad about this guy! Apparently I’ve been deleting his comments, which comments — I’m just guessing of course — might not have precisely represented the apex of human achievement, since I don’t remember them or him. Matthew Submitted on 2010/07/27 at 11:13pm Post my comments. Don’t be afraid of open …

Spinster aunt has even less time today than yesterday

Until an actual patriarchy-blaming time slot opens up in a day or two, allow your absentee blogger to offer a) an award-nominated photograph of the leopard frog eggs found yesterday in the Spinstitute for Texas Herpetology Dept’s experimental algae-choked swamp of a former swimming pool, and b) this light and amusing BDSM-related interlude entitled “You’re …

Spinster aunt has no time for you

This spinster aunt has no time for you people right now. So let us all praise blamer Phio Gistic, who sent in a link to some jaw-dropping shit that just went down in St. Louis Missouri, the mattress-stain of a town where, coincidentally, I spent the 25 worst years of my life. Naturally, what happened …

Sunday Morning Hurl: Mama Grizzlies

Right Wing Woman

What the Mama Grizzly is wearing this season. From SarahPAC video. Whenever a right-wing woman — any right-wing woman — claims to be a feminist, she doesn’t do it in a vacuum. She isn’t just hurting herself. Her antifeminist feminism has violent repercussions and broad implications. It spreads like a contagion from patriotically-attired partisan church …

My unique style self-expresses who I personally am

Jilroy Silliphant. Me! 1963. Pixels on ectoplasm. The inbox at Spinster HQ this morning contained several urgent communiqués from an entity calling itself “How do I remove my tampon without it hitting something?”. Yeah, this is a little embarrassing, but whenever I try to remove my tampon, it either hits my fingers or the rim …

Spinster aunt executes close reading of seemingly benign remark, exposes hidden meanings!

Adorable "trailer" is surprisingly un-trashy. "Eco-Cottage," 475 sq ft, by Nationwide Homes.

Thanks to yesterday’s involuntary contributors, Valerie, Dr Sarah Tonin, and Saphire. You kids are all right. Today I’ll be picking a few more nits on the same theme. If a theme may be said to possess nits. Queries blamer JenniferRuth on the subject of feminists gettin’ after other feminists for perceived infractions of the Unwritten …

We’ve all done it, but maybe it’s time to cut it the fuck out

More excerpts from the comments! # Valerie July 11, 2010 at 4:05 pm […] They make trailer parks look classy and nuanced. # Dr. Sarah Tonin July 11, 2010 at 10:48 pm @Valerie, I agree with the basic sentiment of your comment, but druther you’d pick a less classist analogy than “trailer park”. Cheers. # …

Do you mind if I stalk you up close instead of from across the room?


Sure, I’ll smile, if you take this match and light your fucking mustache on fire. This week’s Sunday Morning Hurl comes from misogynist dude site runs a recurring feature dedicated to “pickup lines.” A pickup line is a phrase used by suave movie bachelors and doofus TV sitcom knobs (and, apparently, by dorks …
