Spinster aunt mutters in Yiddish

If you are anti-IBTP-on-Facebook — and no spinster aunt can blame you for that — you have been spared the recent grim ennui of a painful exchange between a dude named Alexander who fancies himself feministically enlightened, and a blamer named Ana who does not entirely concur with Alexander’s self-assessment. It’s a classic Clueless-Dude Time-Drain. …

Global Blamer Kaffeeklatsch

Phil, my secretary, is against Facebook. I admit I have my reservations, too. It is difficult to regard such a wholesale privacy massacre without suspicion. For example, I just heard on the Marketplace Tech Report that they have just started this dealio where if you mention a brand name in your status update, Facebook can …

A pity there isn’t an antisocial network

I’m not sure why, but I Blame the Patriarchy is now on Facebook. Got some ultra-feminist thingy on your mind? Go on over and spew. By “spew” I of course mean “contribute elegant, concise, thought-provoking remarks that elevate the discourse.” We’ll see how long this lasts! Also, here is a picture of my horse. Carry …

Imminent post looms on horizon, is in cards and forthcoming presently pretty soon in near future!

That’s right, I’m putting the final flourishes on the first draft of a new essay right now. Using wry sardonic wit, a jaundiced eye, and other patriarchy-blaming techniques, the post will convey one spinster aunt’s unassailable opinions on the crappiness of evolutionary psychology. It probably won’t be as good as some other posts I’ve written, …

It’s called evolutionary psychology, look it up

On the outside chance that there still exists a member of the Blametariat who has not seen Privilege Denying Dude, a quasi-amusing expression of the deep inner pain of the sex class and other perma-dissed persons, here ya go. Thanks to everyone who sent it in, particularly those whose emails began “I know you’ve already …

Mantid of the week

Greetings from Spinster HQ, O ye commenters and readers of comments! The “Latest Blamer Invective” sidebar function upon which you have come to dote so warmly has experienced a warp core breach. Two female characters with names are discussing it, and should have it back online before the third act. Meanwhile, please bask in the …

What I did on my summer vacation

Got a new horse. I’m not gonna lie. She’s more fun than patriarchy blaming. Her name is Iz. For those who give a fig about equine particulars, she’s a bloomy 10-year-old chestnut 15.3 Thoroughbred/Oldenburg cross who never puts a foot wrong. We’ll be doing the low hunters, Spinster Aunt Division. In this award-nominated video Iz …

Hey, hepcats!

Fun fact: katydids are kosher. Come’n git it. Why do you even have a patriarchy-blaming blog, Twisty, if you’re just gonna go AWOL and post pictures of skinks and katydids every 17.6 days? Well, here’s the sitch. Brace yourself, because it sucks the bag. It’s cricket season. Cricket season and blaming season cannot coexist. Why …

Spinster aunt posts place-holder

It’s been non-stop action here at Spinster Aunt World Headquarters. Things, like this zucchini, which are the size of Guam, keep happening. Please stand by while an excellent essay is generated by my secretary Phil. Thank you.

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. …
