Valerie Solanas’ SCUM manifesto was quite frankly disturbing, however, considering her life I can sort of see where she is coming from. Her description of the whole thing was way more gory and violent than it needed to be but definitely got her point across.. to say the least. Her perspective was completely different than any other we have discussed, much more extreme. My only concern about this is that Valerie Solanas is the type of feminist that stupid people talk about when they say “oh she’s just an angry feminist who wants to kill all men” and that her scum manifesto could give all feminists a bad rep if people aren’t informed. You could say that it was a satire but behind all of her anger there was a legitimate message.
