Spinster aunt reads interesting email

Despite the dire predictions saturating yesterday’s news, last night’s “supermoon” didn’t precipitate too many cosmic cataclysms or harmonic convergences here in Cottonmouth County. The toilets still flush clockwise and my internet connection remains intact. Sometimes intact internet connections bum me out, but today I was pleased to discover among the emails a communiqué from Athena …

Spinster aunt has cute niece

Now that I Blame the Patriarchy has become the I Heart Transgender Rights blog, it is my duty as an absentee spinster aunt to encourage those readers who have questions about transgenderism to kindly do their own fucking research on their own fucking time. As opposed to infesting the comments with questions like “why should …

Announcement Korner

For the heartwarming nature crappists, I present the red swamp crawfish found beached at my low-water crossing the other day. No yella labs were injured during this photo shoot. Brief thoughts of étouffée, the ancestral diet of spinster aunts of yore. Meanwhile, there can never be a proper bloggy dustup without a mea culpa from …

Holy shit!

Phil, my assistant, just informed me that, while I was off doing the butt-dance for a couple of weeks, I Blame the Patriarchy sprouted about 1742 purulent boils and should probably be put down. “You might want to check that blog you abandoned,” he said. “It’s full of morons.” (Phil is only partially hip to …

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 …

Because you can’t blame on an empty stomach

When a spinster aunt is laid up with a bum knee, three consequences are inevitable. – Slouching in the lime green recliner, watching “Snapped!” and the Cooking Channel, eating sour cream and onion potato chips and stewing about how fucked up it is to have a bum knee: these activities will become the Useful Toil …

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, …

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 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. …
