SCUM Manifesto

I found the SCUM manifesto to be highly entertaining to read. Valerie Solanas is such a historical feminist icon that reading her radical views was really interesting. I can’t say I can agree with her views however as she completely hates the entirety of the male sex. She comes across as if she was joking however she is completely serious. This is totally different from the other readings we’ve read for class as they mostly strive for an equality rather than a hierarchy like Valerie is vouching for. I feel like it’s very hard to take seriously because of how radical it is. However, I thought it was really interesting to hear her point of view as it was something so completely different.
