You can’t make this stuff up

I have a feeling we’re going to be having this sort of conversation a LOT in the next four years…

You know what I found out today? Spencer’s gifts and The Spirit Store are part of the SAME corporation. Figures.

That explains this:

The woman who originally posted this photo has, of COURSE, been threatened and verbally/facebook/twitter assaulted. What’s worse, is that the shirt has SOLD OUT online. Way to go America. This delightful item is also in their product line-up:


To be fair, this was in there as well:

I called the corporate number for Spencer’s and talked to a very nice young man. He was calm and professional and I felt genuinely sorry that he was caught up in this shit storm. Then again, he’s working for a retailer with oftentimes questionable taste, so I wished him well in his job hunting in the future. If you’d like to do the same here is the number:


To combat the bad taste this left in my mouth I’m going to join the march this Saturday in Oakland. If anyone is local and wants to join me here is a link to info for the march.

See you in your pussy hat 😉

  1. This disgusts me so much. Especially: “Grab America By the Pussy.” I’m glad that I don’t frequent the mall, but I definitely won’t be shopping anywhere that sells crap like that.

  2. Thank-you for attending the March. My heart was there but I did not attend. I spent the day instead writing letters to legislators and sending checks to Planned Parenthood and the Sierra club. There are a couple of petitions on :

    We the People
    you might be intersted in it. It is an offical government petition site one petition is about Trump releasing his taxes. With 100,000 signatures the Government must respond to it.
