I like it! Of course, there must also be a "perpetraitress" (and we all know who that is) unless that's too sexist, or if the person in question no longer retains any vestige of femininty. And I wonder if it's possible to be perpetraitorous, so we could use it as an adjective? D.K.

Or "Perpetraitrix."

I almost never leave comments, but this seems as good a time as any to de-lurk. I have to say-for someone that thinks he's lost his groove, your blog has been spot on lately.

Goody: Thanks for choosing to de-lurk here. Perpetraitrix is good. It has a nice ring to it.

I could live with perpetraitrix (it's not anything like dominatrix, is it?)

Oh, and thank you for "spot on" thumbs up. Sometimes that's all it takes to get the next one written, right? Appreciate it--TY!
