S.C.U.M.

Valerie Solanas SCUM Manifesto was both hilarious and concerning. It was a semi-long read, but so extremely powerful when you think about some of the radical ideas she brings to light. She touches on topics such as war, religion, marriage, money, violence, disease, and even death.

But I think my favorite concept that she discusses is her reasoning on how men are created. She refers to them as “biological accidents,” as she continues to reason that the Y gene is an incomplete X, making men incomplete women.

To be honest, I think it takes a certain type of person to understand the concepts she talks about. Someone who believes in a very patriarchal society would probably pass out after the first paragraph. But if you keep an open mind, she does leave you with a lot to think about. It truly is an eye opening piece.
