It’s A Man’s World, Ladies

It’s the spring holidays, and whether you’re celebrating Easter or the Passover, it’s important to remember a very simple rule to make your home a more pleasant place for guests:

Your job is to cook and to show hospitality to your guests.  It is not your job to inject opinions on politics, current events, or gossip about friends and family.  The quieter you are, the more you’ll be appreciated as an excellent hostess.

Whether you’ll be serving ham or matzoh this weekend, it’s always best to do so with your mouth closed.

Enjoy your holidays!

Why My Number Of New Followers Exploded 600% Today.

It’s really quite amazing.

Certain bloggers get terribly offended by my stuff, so they reblog it and leave their own nasty comments questioning my manhood, questioning whether or not I belong in the BDSM community (I’m not a member, so relax), and just generally showing themselves to be a little unhinged.

It’s the followers of those blogs that fascinate me.  They have some pretty open minds, so they want to find out what this Vintage In Stepford guy is all about.

They realize they actually like my stuff, they heart a few of my posts, then they click the “follow” button.

In fact, after “professional outrage” exploded on Tumblr at about 2pm today, my number of new followers skyrocketed to the highest level I’ve ever had on this blog or on my previous incarnation of VIS.

It’s amazing that while those who are outraged think they’re really “putting VIS in his place,” what they’re actually doing is helping their followers to realize things about themselves such as they don’t want rights, they like to be hit, they like the idea of being little more than a sextoy.  And they realize that all of this is done with an informed consent agreement in place.

So despite how I disagree with the nasty comments made about me, I want to thank those who have taken a stand against my blog.  The more you reblog and leave nasty comments, the quicker this blog grows.

[Edit: As of 11 pm, this number is now 842%.]
