Every man, deep down, knows he’s a worthless piece of shit. Overwhelmed by a sense of animalism and deeply ashamed of it; wanting, not to express himself, but to hide from others his total physicality, total egocentricity, the hate and contempt he feels for other men, and to hide from himself the hate and contempt he suspects other men feel for him; having a crudely constructed nervous system that is easily upset by the least display of emotion or feeling, the male tries to enforce a `social’ code that ensures perfect blandness, unsullied by the slightest trace or feeling or upsetting opinion. He uses terms like ‘copulate’, ‘sexual congress’, ‘have relations with’ (to men sexual relations is a redundancy), overlaid with stilted manners; the suit on the chimp.
There is no human reason for money or for anyone to work more than two or three hours a week at the very most. All non-creative jobs (practically all jobs now being done) could have been automated long ago, and in a moneyless society everyone can have as much of the best of everything as she wants.
Although the male, being ashamed of what he is and almost of everything he does, insists on privacy and secrecy in all aspects of his life, he has no real regard for privacy. Being empty, not being a complete, separate being, having no self to groove on and needing to be constantly in female company, he sees nothing at all wrong in intruding himself on any woman’s thoughts, even a total stranger’s, anywhere at any time, but rather feels indignant and insulted when put down for doing so, as well as confused — he can’t, for the life of him, understand why anyone would prefer so much as one minute of solitude to the company of any creep around. Wanting to become a woman, he strives to be constantly around females, which is the closest he can get to becoming one, so he created a `society’ based upon the family — a male-female could and their kids (the excuse for the family’s existence), who live virtually on top of one another, unscrupuluously violating the females’ rights, privacy and sanity.

in S.C.U.M. (Society for Cutting Up Men) Manifesto, Valerie Solanas, 1967

    “She was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and pleaded guilty to “reckless assault with intent to harm”, serving a three-year prison sentence, including treatment in a psychiatric hospital.”

    “she graduated from high school on time and earned a degree in psychology from the University of Maryland, College Park, where she was in the Psi Chi Honor Society.”

    ofereceram-me isso há anos . li , achei que a Solanas era flipada de todo até ler a biografia…,foi abusada por tudo que era homem , a começar no pai e a acabar no andy wahroll, que lhe roubou uma peça de teatro – Up Your Ass, – ( quando ele morreu a peça estava entre as suas coisas ) penso que ainda hoje a representam em N:Y. . acabou os dias num manicómio. de arrepiar , a vida da senhora , compreende-se que sonha-se em aniquilar o sexo masculino.
