iPad-using train passengers neglect to notice crazed gunman, get called out by SF Chronicle

It’s great to be alive in the Teensies! First of all, 9 out of 10 people are allergic to bread all of a sudden, so I get the whole basket to myself at restaurants. Second? Yeah, I’m trying to think of a second great thing, but I can’t, so I’ll just skip straight to the …

The story of twerking

I have been misinformed. Previously it was considered settled fact here at Spinster HQ that twerking was an appropriation of an American lap dance move. However, it has come to my attention, via PRI’s The World, that the twerk is in fact an appropriation of a banned-for-being-too-sexy dance move from Ivory Coast, where it is …

Pink road rage

Just saw a news bite about AAA, the ubiquitous roadside assistance company, painting an unspecified number of its tow trucks pink. For “awareness.” Pink tow trucks. Fix-a-Flat for the Cure? According to ABC News “Good Morning, America,” a grateful breast cancer “survivor”/ AAA employee remarked, “It’s comforting to know that the company I work for …

The pink menace 2013


October? Already? I suspected as much when I saw a TV commercial for one of those bottled “energy shots.” Everyone was wearing a pink shirt; they were hawking a new pink flavor. Then I read some random article in the Houston Chronicle, and noticed that suddenly it has a pink ribbon on its banner. Pink, …

You wanna live fancy mansion francey? You better work, bitch.

Britney gives her homegirl the boot.

The comments yesterday wandered into Reclamation of Degrading Epithets territory when I noted that, since my return to blogging, the dudebro sociopaths who read IBTP have, as if by magic, returned to their regularly scheduled threat-dispensing. The threat they love most is rape, and the word they love most, I report with a resigned snort, …

This is just gross

This post concerns an article on a blow job school in Moscow. If you don’t have time to read the whole thing, here’s the executive summary: Eeew. [End of summary] And here is a link to the final chapter in the Great Fellatio Wars of Aught-Six, which is where we left off. Before we begin, …

“Rebranding” feminism for dudes “who care that there are two genders”


Have you heard about this “rebranding feminism” contest? I know, right? Again with the rebranding of feminism. Every so often there emerges from the fetid mists some chumpass jacknut who would take a crap on feminism by coopting it as a gimmick to help hawk thigh cream and tampons. The target? Women who sense deep …

Project Unbreakable

Fortunately I Blame the Patriarchy isn’t a breaking news site. This means I can post excellent stuff that has already made the rounds on Facebook and the Huffington Post with impunity. By “excellent stuff” I mean stuff that, because it addresses issues of particular relevance to women’s liberation from oppression, deserves sustained interest, or at …

Spinster aunt busts move, sprains booty

If you must know, I have been benched in a freak twerking accident. Because it really chaps the spinster hide when perfectly reasonable behaviors are fetishexualized by the megatheopornocorporatocracy, I had planned to write a fairly epic blogular tirade about how butt-wagging is objectively an awesome pastime that, absent the ubiquitous pornsick male gaze, is …

Courtroom drama “Silk” hits the usual misogynist notes

Once, just once, it would be great if a TV crime drama could feature a woman in a recurring lead role who doesn’t either a) eventually end up in a scene where a maniacal predator chains her up by the wrists in a dungeon or b) accidentally get pregnant, sensibly determine that having a kid …
