Today a writer told me she saw SCUM in my office when we were talking about her assignment, and then she adopted a cat and named it Valerie Solanas. THIS IS ALL I HOLD DEAR IN LIFE MY FRIENDS.

not going to waste any time reblogging this because I want to enjoy my Sunday night, but seriously? like, Andy Warhol was a piece of shit who exploited a lot of people. also, have you even read SCUM? I would rather see folks unpack and problematize SCUM than waste life reading/talking about bourgie excrement like The Feminine Mystique.
before I go, I just wanna say that one of the things I secretly love about the writings of Valerie Solanas is how they very brashly and unapologetically pit women against each other. we need to talk about this. we need to talk about girl-hate. we need to talk about the fictions of solidarity. all of these things are so important — we must learn to look these monsters in the eye and embrace the fuck out of them.

I like to think of it as her shooting.

“SCUM will keep on destroying, looting, fucking-up and killing until the money-work system no longer exists and automation is completely instituted or until enough women co-operate with SCUM to make violence unnecessary to achieve these goals.”
is where all the knives are.”
