Did I really get banned from Twitter for making a cake?

31 Aug

I’m really mad about getting kicked off Twitter right in the middle of Operation Buttercream, because it was such a spectacular clusterfuck and it would have made such a great event to live tweet!

 

One of the last images I tweeted was this: trying to replace the element in my oven, which died an unceremonious death.

 

Element

 

The stove eventually had to pulled out of the island but there was not enough space for my husband to jam himself in behind the oven. So Mr. JB is draped over the glass cook top trying to beat the wires on the back of the stove into some sort of submission and he’s not having a fantastic time of it. The insulation is scorched, the wires are brittle with age and the individual strands on one wire have melted together.

 

Not good.

 

I have two of nine cakes baked at this point, and I need to make seven more. And I have no oven.

And then it all goes mad!  Mr. JB shifted his weight on the glass cooktop and shattered it into pieces. I mean shattered! Luckily, I had thought to place a yoga mat over the glass so he didn’t get hurt, but now I have no oven, and no stovetop and a wedding cake for 200 people to make!

I ran up and down the street between my neighbor’s houses, using their ovens and cooktops to make the cakes and white chocolate ganache, checking cakes and whipping up batter and buttercream frosting in my own kitchen and running back to check on cakes and it was craaaaaazy!

 

But I did it! There was a chef at the wedding (the groom’s brother in law) and he said it was the best wedding cake he has ever tasted! I have a theory as to why that is – it’s a great recipe – butter, flour, eggs, vanilla beans – but the key was that it wasn’t decorated all fancy. It took about an hour to do all the buttercream rosettes, instead of three to four days for a real fancy cake boss creation (which I could never have done in the first place). Instead of the cake being four days old, it was less than 24hrs old. Ergo, it wasn’t dried up shitty vanilla flavored sawdust, as most wedding cakes are.

 

Sucks that I didn’t get to live tweet that whole fiasco, and I still have yet to hear from Twitter about why my account was suspended. David Futrelle is pretty convinced it’s because I posted pictures of male infant genital mutilation which is kind of sickeningly hilarious – the pictures were abusive. You know, not actually cutting the baby or anything. No comment on that, but god forbid I post a picture to shame feminists for not giving a fuck about little boys.

 

I have a second Twitter account that I am using until an actual human gets around to reviewing my account, and you can find me @thejudgybitch .

 

The wedding cake was fun, despite everything. The bride and groom loved it and it was a wonderful gift to give. Mr. and Mrs. M. are two of the most level-headed, down to earth, genuine people I know, and I am extremely confident they will go the distance. All the love and congratulations in the world for the new family!

 

Hope to see you all on Twitter, with my original account restored.

 

Lots of love,

 

JB

    I’m trying to organize a “Million Women Against Feminism” march to #FreeJudgyBitch1 on the Mall in Washington, but sign-ups have been slow. David Futrelle didn’t return my invitation, so I’m betting that he’s probably not coming…

    If David Futrelle said the sky was blue, I’d have to check.
    In all honesty, since I won’t Twitter, I’m more than happy to see you post blogs.
    Speaking of kitchen dramas, how did you make out on the promised two thousand cake pops?

    I had a buttercream frosted cake when I got married too and I had people coming up to me for months telling me it was the best wedding cake they ever had. I never did get the days-old cake trend.

    It doesn’t seem they need to give a reason even. I haven’t had a twitter account suspended, but I did have a Google account closed. They wouldn’t even tell me why, but I suspect someone somewhere probably got their panties in a bunch over some politically incorrect statement or comment I made. Seems this is becoming par for the course these days.

    I think they have algorithms turning accounts off on a purely mechanical basis. I have run into accounts being suspended for “aggressive following”, which is measure against marketing strategies for companies trying to gain a lot of followers by themselves aggressively following others. In that specific case it is quite easy to get the account re-opened, just takes that you click a button confirming that you won’t abuse the privilege the account confers to you.
    I also believe there’s some algorithm that tracks how often you are blocked and if that goes over a certain limit …
    In any case, it ought to be possible to get it reopened.

    Sounds like some loose connections in the wiring – they should be powered down occasionally (few years for stove/dryer or anything with a big power use) and checked for security (not stripped by excessive force or worked loose over time) – Electricians can be very helpful in keeping things safer.

    I suspect it may have been a combination of things, possibly including those circumcision photos. I do remember, however, at least one or two people on Twitter claiming You (JB) are a rape apologist, and pointing to some article you wrote about a sex ring involving older men and underaged girls as proof. According to the tweets, you argued that the underage girls were the real predators–I believe they even tried to drag Typhonblue into the discussion, but I don’t know where it ended up, nor could I find the article they were talking about. At any rate, it will be interesting to find out what the actual reason was.

    The cake looks great btw, makes me want to blow my diet.

    I have just seen one Youtube video in the MGTOW TV about a girl supporting WomenAgainstFeminism and debunking the feminist anti campaign.

    Well… this girl, anti-feminist or feminist… still the same thing: bad attitude, narcissitic, lunatic eyes…

    Same bitch, different collar..

    Marry one of this anti feminist woman and she will get pregnant from someone else, make your life a hell, divorce you and squeeze you in Court.

    The anti feminist women in Spain are the worst, too.

    A few days ago I met a former girfrienf form the 80´s. When we first met we were 15. Now 44. We have been meeting along the years, from time to time.

    She was so pretty, but a cigarette smoker.
    When she was a teenager that behaviour was sluttie and sexy.
    When she was in her 20s, it was glamorous and sexy.
    When she was in her 30s it was “strong and independent woman” behaviour. No longer sexy, though. But she still an attractive woman

    Now her skin is like a parchment, her teeth and fingers so yellow, her breath stings, so her clothe, and she looks like an old bag lady in the loonybin smoking nonstop.

    I would not shag her not even with a stick. Not even for the good all times, listening to Spandau Ballet while shagging.

    This is an advice for young hotties who smoke cuz they feel more “sexy” and “cool” by doing it.
    Don´t!!!

    It is true. I never did it.

    But for men is so cool, and healthy to smoke cigars.
