Scum Manifesto

The reading, Scum Manifesto gets many emotions out of people due to critical view on the men. In my opinion, some of her ideas were ridiculous and at the same time funny. For example, she mentioned how men are very insecure so the male attains its power and masculinity by giving money and being the […]

Most of her views are reasonable, as they are extracted from real life experience, […]

S. C. U. M

This reading by Valerie Solanas analyzes males in a tone that is both cynical and seething with hatred. Her hatred for males is entertaining and makes the reading very interesting through that alone rather than through the relatability of its content. It makes the reader curious to what males did to Valerie to cause her to […]
