“The SCUM Manifesto is a document of profound vulnerability, written in a voice of profound empowerment. It’s a brutal call to arms, written by a woman in a world of hurt. This tension between powerlessness and power makes it an enduring piece of writing. Never have the personal and the political been so mercilessly zipped together, like little steel teeth.”
—Claire Dederer, Nation

“Solanas is as relevant today as she was in the 1960s, because nothing much has changed for women.”
—Julie Bindel, Spectator

“You either happen to think this is a work of unadulterated genius, or you dismiss it as the ravings of a loony psycho-bitch, not understanding that this is exactly what makes it so compelling and so charged with insight.”
—Suzanne Moore, New Statesman

“Valerie Solanas wrote a very angry and very precise portrait of what she considered the male to be: something between a human and an ape; an unresponsive blob only concerned with physical sensation and without the capacity for empathy or self-knowledge or intimacy, and at the same time full of hatred and jealously and shame and guilt. Her description is beautiful and on some level, I think, entirely accurate.”
—Nick Cave

“Its nihilism is a form of utopia for Solanas, a pre-punk aesthete who fearlessly tossed out ideas that people are just now beginning to raise … As a mixture of social philosophy and fine shtick, her work has the rare virtue of seeming at the same time totally insane and totally right.”
Los Angeles Times

“As Solanas reminds us, revolutionary ideas don’t emerge quietly from the elite stratum of a society; they often bloom from its scum.”

“Gleefully incoherent, crackling with energy.”

“Articulate, angry and funny.”

From the Trade Paperback edition.


The focus of this edition is not on the nostalgic appeal of SCUM. Rather, in a characteristically brilliant and erudite introduction, renowned scholar Avita Ronell reconsiders Solanas's infamous text in light of the social milieu in which it was written, and reinterprets its status as a cult classic. Ronell writes, "Maybe the Solanas tract was payback: it was clocked to strike the time of response to all shameless woman-hating manifestos and their counterparts, the universalizers." She conjures Derrida's "The Ends of Man" (written in the same year), Judith Butler's Excitable Speech, Nietzsche's Ubermensch, and the notorious feminist icons from Medusa, Medea, and Antigone, to Lizzie Borden, Lorenna Bobbitt and Aileen Wournos, illuminating the evocative exuberance of Solana's dark tract. "IsSCUM ever marches, it will be over the President's stupid, sickening face; if SCUM ever strikes, it will be in the dark with a six-inch blade..." - Valerie Solanas "Sometimes you have to scream to be heard." - Avital Ronell

5.0 von 5 Sternen un inspiring (and ironic) view of what misoginy really is 14. November 2014
Von ana rodrigues - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is very intriguing. If taken seriously it would be ridiculous, but taken as a satyrical view it is brilliant. It inverts all misogyny logic and presents a world where man is the weak, fawlty sex and women are powerful and able to kill all men. It contradicts all messages our culture propagates and serves as a reset in our brains in order to think how things could be radically different.

Ronell bored me to death and I put it down for a two months and picked it up last night. Just totally skipped the introduction by Ronell and a suggest you do to.

The SCUM Manifesto. Society for Cutting Up Men (S-C-U-M). Before we begin the review it is necessary to say a word about its author Valerie Solanas. She was a product of the social upheavel of the 1960's. Radical to say the least, but more on that later. Solanas is the woman who shot Andy Warhol. Before she shot Warhol, she wrote and produced a few plays parroting her feminist views. Advocating militancy and finally becoming militant, Solanas ensured her place in popculture history even if only as a footnote.

Solanas wastes no time in cutting up men. In the second paragraph she lays the basis for her arguement: men are incomplete women.
"The male is a biological accident: the Y (male) gene is an imcomplete X (female) gene, that is, it has an incomplete set of chromosones. In other words, the male is an incomplete female, a walking abortion, aborted at the gene stage. To be male is to be deficient..."

Okay, so far so good. The premise has be laid down, now to see where Solanas goes with it. Unfortunately from here on it falls apart logically and leaves all sanity behind.

Solanas' critique on her world in 1967 is one of oppression where morality is manifested as being under the heel of man socially and economically. In response to this perception, she states that all women must become SCUM (Society for Cuttin Up Men). The SCUM must abolish the money/work system, begin total automation, and kill all men.
"Just as humans have a prior right to existence over dogs by virtue of being more highly evolved and having a superior consciousness, so women have a prior right to exist over men. The elimination of any male is, therefore, a righteous and good act, an highly beneficial to women as well as an act of mercy."

Government, religion, and "great" culture are all institutions that keep women in their place, and therefore, should be destroyed as well.

Solanas goes on to say that science is on the pawn of the industrial complex a.k.a making money and rarely benefits womankind. According to Solanas science could eradicate all disease and even aging itself in a few short weeks if it was motivated.

As I read deeper into the manifesto, it was clear she was angry at everything male which she percieved as oppressive to women and ultimately herself. She paints men as animals, when infact, she proposed a savage new world. An alternatvie with no men in the world to clear up the problems she saw at the heel of man.

An interesting read as a whole, but only as an exercise in curiousity. The SCUM Manifesto was written in all seriousness by Solanas, but cannot be taken seriously. It should be read as a cautionary tale to sleep in the back of your mind. Only coming to the surface when you hear or see some radical militant spewing their rhetoric. To anyone who advocates anarchy, ask yourself are you really serious...
