1.0 von 5 Sternen The SCUM Manifesto is a hateful and explict call for violence, terrorism and murder 12. April 2014
Von Bookworm190 - Veröffentlicht auf
The manifesto opens with Solonas' claiming that women must "destroy the male sex" and demands women birth only female children from now on. She describes men as "biological accidents[s]," "walking abortion[s]" and "emotional cripple[s]." She details the supposed negative effects inherent male defectiveness has on society. Most of her incredibly questionably assertions are bigoted statements about men, but she also makes other outlandish claims, like "the problems of aging and death could be solved within a few years."

The remainder of the book is a call to create SCUM, a terrorist organization/movement that will take over society through theft, sabotage, vandalism, forcibly removing people from their jobs, taking over news media, forcibly breaking up heterosexual couples and murder. Lots of murder. Solanas clearly states, ""SCUM will kill all men who are not in the Men's Auxiliary of SCUM." Although, even being part of the Men's Auxiliary is "not a sufficient condition for making SCUM's escape list." On the other hand, even women who do not cooperate with SCUM will be spared, because Solonas believes killing women would confuse the public's perception of SCUM. She also thinks it is unnecessary. Unlike men, she believes woman are "improvable" and if SCUM can "eliminate men" then "women will shape up."

The book provides basic details about how the organization/movement will operate. SCUM will always rely on criminal activities and not "picket, demonstrate, march or strike to attempt to achieve its ends." SCUM will actively recruit. Ultimately, SCUM "will consist of recruiters; the elite corps -- the hard core activists" who are the "looters and destroyers" and "the elite of the elite -- the killers."

Solanas writes that SCUM will continue its campaign of destruction and murder "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." Solanas' believes this is the first step in a female utopia. However, even after there is "no further need to kill men," a man's future in Solanas' world is bleak. If labor has not been fully automated by the time SCUM comes to power, men will become "totally subservient" to women, essentially or literally becoming a slave class. After the "replacement of males by machines," the "few remaining men can exist out their puny days dropped out on drugs," "strutting around in drag," "passively watching the high-powered female in action," "breeding in the cow pasture with" the unenlightened woman who still find men appealing, or they can go to "the nearest friendly suicide center."

Defenders of the book claim the manifesto it is satire, a convenient way to claim Solanas didn't mean what she actually wrote. I do not see any satire. Just because Solonas' plan is ludicrously evil, does not mean she wasn't being serious. The author herself has been quoted as saying the manifesto is "dead serious." She even demonstrated her willingness to use murder as a solution when she gunned down 2 men in cold-blood (she tried to shoot one more, but her gun jammed). The manifesto is exactly what it is, blatant misandry and a call for terrorism and murder on a grand scale.

The book is the ranting of a deranged, violent bigot, but Solanas is dead and can't hurt anyone anymore. What is truly worrying is the support Solanas and the book have received. Robin Morgan, who later worked as an editor for Ms. magazine, publicly demonstrated for Solanas' release. Ti-Grace Atkinson, a former president of the New York chapter of the National Organization for Woman has been quoted as calling Solonas "the first outstanding champion of women's rights." Even today, it is easy to find websites, reviews and comments that claim the manifesto is brilliant and even funny.

It is deeply disturbing that Solonas' appeal to murder of half the human population has captured the imaginations of so many. I wonder if these people would feel the same if a man convicted of gunning down innocent women penned a book calling for the establishment of a terrorist organization devoted to murdering all women until it attained political power. Would people claim that book was brilliant or funny? Would that book get numerous re-printings and translations?

It cannot be stated strongly enough, this vile book is a hateful call to murder. It is a promotion of violent misandry. The only value the SCUM Manifesto could possibly have to a morally decent person is as a looking glass into the dark underbelly of radical feminism.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Hateful and Sexist 26. Dezember 2013
Von Michael - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Imagine if a man who hated women shot Frida Kahlo in the chest, nearly killing her and causing her incredible physical suffering for the rest of her life. Imagine he also attempted to murder another woman with her. Imagine that while this man who hated women spent just 3 years in prison for his heinous deed, Frida suffered a lifelong blow to her life and art. Imagine if that man stalked her for years after the attempted murder, and the authorities did nothing about it because in that country men got a get-out-of-jail-free-card just because of their gender, and only women stalking men was taken seriously.

Imagine if that man, who incredibly saw himself as the victim, then wrote a book 'The Society for Cutting Up Women', and sold it told other men who hated women. Imagine if that book was not only still in print today, but was getting rave reviews by modern men and women living in the 21st century. What a sick world that would be I think we'd all agree. Surely those praising the book could only come from the twisted depths of our society, like the author, and would most accurately be described using the acronym that forms the book's title.

Well, sadly a world like that DOES exist today, it seems, at least for men. This disturbing and hateful piece of literature, the product of a social misfit who took out her anger at rejection on the male world, should be available today for scrutiny, but only in the way Eichmann's memoirs are - to get an indication of the kind of twisted mind that could generate such hatred. This is not a work to rate highly. It is one to acknowledge with a single star, that sadly one has perused the lowest point to which the women's movement fell.

3.0 von 5 Sternen it's a manifesto. not a monograph. 27. März 2003
Von Andi Marquette - Veröffentlicht auf
Indeed, Solanas's work is a diatribe. It's a manifesto. Consequently, you will not find citations and more often than not, you probably won't find much to hang your hat on for solid ideas. You will, however, find broad generalizations and "ranting." What's important about Solanas' work is that she wrote it in concert with what she felt and saw around her during the late 1960s, the time of the nascent radical feminist movement. Her manifesto is an extreme expression of some of the frustration and, in some cases, rage that women involved in the movement felt about institutionalized and personalized sexism. The SCUM Manifesto, therefore, is best considered as part of the primary documentation that emerged from that historical period. Even things readers might consider odious or vile are valuable because they provide insights to the more extreme aspects of issues which are always tied to mainstream movements.
Solanas herself was a deeply troubled woman who struggled throughout her short life with the remnants of abuse that she suffered during her childhood (I suspect sexual abuse, given her deep-seated rage against men). She was quite prolific, writing short plays during the 60s that she would perform at impromptu venues. She eventually attracted the attention of Andy Warhol, who probably found her intense, bright, and with an acidic sense of humor. He agreed with some of her views about sex, but ended up losing one of her play manuscripts (her only copy) and this may have set her off to commit a more violent act. In 1968, Solanas shot Warhol with a .32 caliber pistol, prompted by her own demons and what she may have perceived as ridicule from Warhol and his associates. Warhol survived; Solanas was sentenced to 3 years in prison; the SCUM Manifesto was eventually published in 1971 as a result of media attention surrounding the shooting. Following her prison term, she seems to have dropped out of the public eye and continued with her life, heading west. She died in 1988 of pneumonia in a welfare hotel in San Francisco.
The Manifesto is a reflection, therefore, of Solanas' own past but also offers some insight into what she perceived around her as the power of men over women, institutionalized and expressed sometimes in violence against women. For its reflection of one woman's experience (as deranged as she herself may have been) with the transformations going on in 1960s American culture, it should not be dismissed. But it should absolutely be taken with a pound of salt.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Wants all men to be killed. 24. April 2014
Von Cody - Veröffentlicht auf
This book basically views men as horrible people who should all be killed. It makes me wonder why this book is even on Amazon. It's basically genocide. Why does Amazon even sell this book I'll never know.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Heady Satire 3. April 2014
Von Rene - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
After reading the manifest, I saw it as a satire on the times Valerie wrote it. However, much of it pertains even in this day. If you approach it literally, you will likely be shocked, for a number of reasons. Not only by the viscious blast at men (and partially deserved), but by the naive sounding of the societal changes advocated, most of which are not scientifically possible (in her time as well as now), economically unfeasible and (for some at least) emotionally unreasonable. Nevertheless, there is truth here, and dynamic truth! Then and now. So I thought of Jonathan Swift and his satire of the times he lived in and the ridiculous customs of his day. But here in the SCUM manifesto, there is no Gulliver in Lilliput or Brobdingnag. Here was a person who went through hell, and it's a wonder she could even write anything. But, her intelligence comes through, despite the language and off the cuff remarks. As my shock wore off, I saw it as a marvelous piece of modern philosophy, not up in the clouds, but pointing out some of the problems of our day.
