Perhaps @Twitter @Support Can Explain Why My @rsmccain Account Is Locked

I was scarcely on Twitter yesterday because I was doing research for my Sex Trouble series, but this morning I received notification that I am locked out of my account @rsmccain and I won’t be able to unlock it for 12 hours.

Hulk Hogan Pulls ‘Bigger Digger Trigger’

by Smitty The Hulking One has apparently pulled the ‘Bigger Digger Trigger‘. That word, which, uttered by anyone of European extraction not named Quentin Tarantino, (why didn’t I name a child ‘Quentin’, so that he could be privileged so?) engenders (better use that verb before the SJWs have it cut off of the language) vast […]

‘Rape Culture’ or ‘Libel Culture’? Lawyers for Rolling Stone Blame the Victim

by Smitty “I forgave Betty decades ago,” I told her daughter Ellen. We entered my step-mother’s house. Time to fix it up, Betty having at last allowed she’d ride out her widowhood in assisted living. “Good to hear,” said Ellen. “Mom said little of you, and what there was wasn’t nice.” I picked up a […]

Friday Fiction: 100 Word Challenge

by Smitty “Over Macho Grande?” we challenge the trenchcoated figure with the fake cigarette. “No. I don’t think I’ll ever get over Macho Grande.” “We lost the dearest and best that day,” goes this week’s passphrase.
