About this deal
There's no reason why a society consisting of rational beings capable of empathizing with each other, complete and having no natural reason to compete, should have a government, laws, or leaders.” Kendisindeki farklılık kadar, başka erkeklerdeki farklılık da onu tehdit eder; bunun anlamı onların ibne olduklarıdır ve ne pahasına olursa olsun onlardan uzak durması gerekir o yüzden bütün erkeklerin benzeştiğinden emin olmak ister” To get a full read of SCUM, it is important to consider not only what was written but who wrote it and why. It is something to read carefully and critically, which is easy to do since it is relatively short. It should be read both as a product of its time and as a product that was written off as “crazy” and therefore did not get enough attention in its time.

The male claim that females find fulfillment through motherhood and sexuality reflects what males think they'd find fulfilling if they were female.”A woman not only takes her identity and individuality for granted, but knows instinctively that the only wrong is to hurt others, and that the meaning of life is love.” SCUM Manifesto is a great read if you are looking for a cathartic rant about the shortcomings of cis men, and there are many to be sure. The political climate we are living in is incredibly frustrating for women and gender non-conforming folks. SCUM Manifesto makes it clear that many of these same frustrations have been present and wrestled with for decades. But this work is more than rambling misandry—it was also anti-capitalism at a point where those thoughts were not as widespread as they are today. Her lawyer, Florence Kennedy, who was a radical feminist of the time referred to her as “one of the most important spokeswomen of the feminist movement.” 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.”

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.” Yüksek" eğitim sistemimizin katılığı, sıkıcılığı, pahalılığı, zaman tüketiciliği ve adaletsiz dıştalayıcılığı bir sürü potansiyel biliminsanının bilimsel kariyerden uzaklaşmasına yol açar.” Valerie was known to be a butch lesbian, often wearing baggy masculine clothing, cursing, and smoking. In 1977 when Village Voice wrote that she was not a lesbian, she said, “I consider the part where you said, ‘she’s not a lesbian’ to be seriously libel.” Solanas was college-educated but filled her writing with a lot of crassness which isolated her from academia and made her more in line with artists and proto punks. Solanas was not respected amongst her feminist peers, and was mostly unheard of until she shot, and nearly killed, Andy Warhol in 1968.Solamente las mujeres que confían plenamente en sí mismas, las arrogantes, las extrovertidas, las orgullosas, las poseedoras de mentes rigurosas, son capaces de mantener una conversación intensa, audaz, ingeniosa.” baskı"nın karşısında ortaya çıktığında, kurumsallaşmış şiddetin bir reddidir.

It should be read with empathy for Valerie, as her opinions reflect many hardships she faced. She grew her theories out of personal experience which is more than can be said for many academics who over intellectualize things. She speaks from her heart even when it is not always eloquent or proper. Many parts of the book are very witty and funny. At the end of the day, it is a refreshing read for those of us who have, and understand, an innate rage towards cis men. 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.” Visuomenei, jei ją sudarytų pilnavertės, mąstančios būtybės, gerai suprantančios viena kitą ir nekonkuruojančios taip beprasmiškai, nereikėtų nei vyriausybės, nei įstatymų, nei vadovų.”Valerie Solanas is most well known as “the woman who shot Andy Warhol.” But as with all underrated women, there is a lot more worth knowing about her than her relationships with, and to, men. In doing research about her, a lot of what I found wrote her off as “crazy” or “insane,” and while there may be truth to her suffering from mental illness, there were reasons behind what she did that are worth examining. All of the following information I gathered from SCUM Manifesto, its introduction, and the film I Shot Andy Warhol which was based on her life (and definitely worth watching for anyone interested in knowing more).
