She Was Crazy, But On The Right Track...

It's been one of those days.

One of those, "I hate everything and everyone including me" kinda days, thanks in part to a lot of people, but mostly to those with Y chromosomes.

But the hatred is not just on my behalf, it's on my friends' behalf, too. Sadly, I am not the only female with wack-ass men in her life, and that's just pathetic. Because it makes me feel like instead of my situation being the exception, it's the fucking rule!

And how depressing is that?

So I turn to the only thing I know in times like this. Valerie Solanas' SCUM Manifesto. If you haven't read it, you should. If you have read it, read it again. Go out and buy it at your local Shakespeare & Co. bookstore. It's not that big and it's only $5, but it's definitely something that belongs on your bookshelf.

Who's Valerie Solanas? She's the crazy bitch who shot Andy Warhol.

What is the SCUM Manifesto? I'll let Valerie tell you. Here are excerpts:

Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and destroy the male sex.

The male is a biological accident: the Y (male) gene is an incomplete X (female) gene, that is, it has an incomplete set of chromosomes. In other words, the male is an incomplete female, a walking abortion, aborted at the gene stage. To be male is to be deficient, emotionally limited; maleness is a deficiency disease and males are emotional cripples.

Eaten up with guilt, shame, fears and insecurities and obtaining, if he's lucky, a barely perceptible physical feeling, the male is, nonetheless, obsessed with screwing; he'll swim through a river of snot, wade nostril-deep through a mile of vomit, if he thinks there'll be a friendly pussy awaiting him.

Screwing is, for a man, a defense against his desire to be female.

Preach, sistah gurl, PREACH! And that's just the first few paragraphs!! I know you're just DYING to read the rest...okay, I'll save you the $ here for the complete text of SCUM Manifesto.
