S.C.U.M. - Destroy The Male Sex
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.
Supply the non-relating male with the delusion of usefulness, and enable him to try to justify his existence by digging holes and then filling them up. Leisure time horrifies the male, who will have nothing to do but contemplate his grotesque self. Unable to relate or to love, the male must work. Females crave absorbing, emotionally satisfying, meaningful activity, but lacking the opportunity or ability for this, they prefer to idle and waste away their time in ways of their own choosing -- sleeping, shopping, bowling, shooting pool, playing cards and other games, breeding, reading, walking around, daydreaming, eating, playing with themselves, popping pills, going to the movies, getting analyzed, traveling, raising dogs and cats, lolling about on the beach, swimming, watching TV, listening to music, decorating their houses, gardening, sewing, nightclubbing, dancing, visiting, `improving their minds' (taking courses), and absorbing `culture' (lectures, plays, concerts, `arty' movies). Therefore, many females would, even assuming complete economic equality between the sexes, prefer living with males or peddling their asses on the street, thus having most of their time for themselves, to spending many hours of their days doing boring, stultifying, non-creative work for someone else, functioning as less than animals, as machines, or, at best -- if able to get a `good' job -- co-managing the shitpile. What will liberate women, therefore, from male control is the total elimination of the money-work system, not the attainment of economic equality with men within it.
2 μικρά αποσπάσματα από το S.C.U.M. Manifesto της Valerie Solanas που χρησιμοποίησαν και οι MATMOS στο άλμπουμ τους The Rose Has Teeth In The Mouth of The Beast. Θα πρέπει -λογικά- να είναι από τις μεγαλύτερες ακρότητες που έχουν γραφτεί ποτέ...
Το κείμενο καθώς και την βιογραφία της Valerie Solanas (η οποία πυροβόλησε 3 φορές τον Andy Warhol!) μπορείτε να βρείτε με ένα απλό search στο Google ή μπορείτε να δείτε την (so-so) ταινία “I shot Andy Warhol” με πρωταγωνίστρια την Lily Taylor
