College Candy Takes Back the Word Spinster

We’re at our wit’s end with this country and their improper use of the word spinster. Once, a very long time ago (or maybe not a very long time ago, I’m no history buff), the word spinster actually meant something. And that something was NOT an unmarried woman living with cats. It was a woman who spun — and as a country we owe these original spinsters a big apology for stealing their professional title and turning it into something dirty.

So in honor of them, we present the original spinsters!

      spinning was actually the responsibility of the single sister. ergo "spinster". (it's one of the 10 things i retained from a textile science class last semester, haha)
