Everyone's a critic.

"Why is it that your blog is always 40% decor, 60% misogyny? I was hoping it would be different after your return, but you're the same old woman-hating gal!"

About THIS post.

If my criticism seems like misogyny, oh well. I'm just not that into geriatric pantlessness and cupcake-party-throwing ladies. That's all. Sometimes I like to offer an opinion about ladies who irritate me. Chalking it up to misogyny? That's your call.

I think you're just fine. But as I'm catching up on your recent posts and their comments I'm thinking most of the anons are huge bitches.

Hell hath no fury like an anonymouse scorned.

I loved that post. Don't change a thing. Bloody anonymous.

I forgot about that picture. Is there really any reason ever that anyone should pose like that for a magazine? Ever?

misogyny: I do not think it means what you think it means.

I hate that Anonymous. Probably some chick.

Shauna said...

What is geriatric pantlessness? Is there a craze of old ladies sans bottoms? I had no idea.

That sounds so batshit, I might just have to be for it.

Alayna said...

Whatever. As a woman, I can't stand other women getting accolades just for doing something AND being female. I'm not the type of person that sticks with women, I'm the type of person that sticks with competent people. I think you're perfectly fine and refreshing.

Bitter anonymous.

There are plenty of sugary sweet - no, nauseatingly sweet - blogs out there. You are a refreshing palate cleanser after the vile taste of wreaths, chalkboard paint, spray paint, coffee filters, chevrons, greek keys etc etc etc...stay the course!!

I was taught to keep my knees together and here she is with her coochie squared off in the camera, GETTING HER PHOTO TAKEN. Misogynistic? Here is the acid test for me: would you want your daughter or mother to do it? Then Anonymous I expect to see a posting on this website of either your mom or daughter IN THAT POSE!!!!

Don't you just love when people only kind of learn a new word?

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

What PrairieGirl said. Anon totally misremembered how to use that word. I think Decorno is a total equal opportunity criticizer.

Design Citation said...

WHAT? Decorno talks shit about everyone - male, female AND she-male ! And thats why we love her.
so please shut the fuck up and go away. BITCH.

maison21 said...

your misogyny is especially virulent when you defend a woman's right to make her own reproductive choices. i wish you would please stop hating women long enough to realize they can't be trusted to make decisions about their own bodies.

(and since sarcasm often doesn't translate to the computer screen, the above statement is obviously dripping with it).

claire said...

I recognize I'm probably being a hypocrite right now, but it's really too easy to be a hater in a blog comment. Being critical of some women's behavior is completely different from being critical of women in general. While you're looking up "misogeny" in the dictionary, you might also want to check out "nuance." Jeesh...

I love you just the way you are.

Penelope Bianchi said...

Anonymous said...

enough.you are a funny, refreshingly honest girl in a world of self=promoting phonies who would do anything for attention. because you approach your criticisms with thought and intelligence, i for one am always interested to read them. keep it up. please.

Penelope Bianchi said...

That is the grossest apartment I have ever seen. I have actually cancelled my subscription to W !

You are ANYTHING but a "misogynist"!
You are indeed an equal opportunity criticizer! And Please keep it up!

Anonymous said...

Look, Decorno is only saying what we often wish we could say out loud without being bitch-slapped.
We come here for her acerbic wit and frank commentary of the ridiculous and fabulous.
Misogyny? Puleeeeze.

yasmine said...

i prefer bits of snark and some bite over saccharine sweet and plastic any time. i may not agree with you always, but i appreciate the honesty.

Anonymous said...

Just glad your back Decorno and if the are not, why did they bother to check your blog they should be decorating cupcakes.

Lady Blue said...

"Geriatic pantlessness" yeahhh that's a no. And someone who can't understand that doesn't deserve to have access to the internet.
I literally fell over laughing when I read your reply.

Bianca said...

Like they all said.....please don't change (not like you would any way).

And don't you dare go away again and come back changed. Don't you dare go away, period!

Anon...you go.
