My ex-girlfriend and her college friends used to spout off this unfair, extremist trash as fact (although they were never aware of, or at least never cited, their source). I never knew why until I came across this book. Now, I have to suspect instructors at Bryn Mawr College (and perhaps the other Seven Sisters) teach it to the young, sheltered, impressionable freshman women in their college orientation classes or somesuch (perhaps to try an increase the amount of lesbian experimentation there by making men seem less desirable).
This book is hate speech, pure and unadulterated, and it is about as funny as making up untrue rape allegations. This book has nothing to do with feminism, at least not any sort of sex-positive or egalitarian variety, but it does at least have the ability separate out strong, true, noble feminists from the ugly stereotypes they must regularly deal with (the ugly stereotypes are the ones that buy, read, like, and/or believe this book).

...but Solanas' attitude and writing warrant the term, if ever anyone did. I mean, the first paragraph speaks of the need to "destroy the male sex." Sounds like genocide to me!
The term "man-hater" also comes to mind. Both terms (the former of which, incidentally, was coined by Rush Limbaugh) are grotesquely misused by right-wing fanatics to justify misogyny. Some would argue that works like the SCUM Manifesto only serve to alienate middle-of-the-road types from feminism as well as to give the far-right amunition for their ridiculous claims that after thousands of years of woman-hating, man-hating runs rampant and actually poses some kind of threat.
However, the SCUM Manifesto is fascinatingly deranged- rarely do we get this kind of glimpse into the mind of a psychopath. Because that, in the end, is what the SCUM Manifesto is. But as far as feminist literature is concerned, it is at best an embarrassment and at worst dangerous.

I have not much to say but that if any man was publishing a book promoting genital mutilation of females it would be banned and labeled for what it would be : hate speech. The fact that this book, not only was edited but reedited in 1997 is very worrisome to each individual caring about dignity and human kind. This is hate speech, please do not spread such desease.

The woman was a psycho. True, she was a very intelligent person, but a psycho nonetheless. You cannot judge all men on the actions of one. (I am a girl, so I can say) What is this? This is reverse sexism. This is prejudism at it's worst. I found her story and her words very intriguing, but at the same time I know reality.

The book was interesting in the way that you got to see inside the head of the person who shot Andy Warhol. It gave you insight on her reasons for doing so. This book is definitly for entertantment value only. Her ideas are unrealistic but definitly a new way of thinking.

This book is by Valerie Solanas, the killer of Andy warhol. It is about life, death, men's relationships to women, and vice versa. Most of the ideas are very extreme, but if you can in your own head tone down her reading, maybe you can get something out of it. If you cannot however, I am sure that you will still find it fascinating to be let so intensly into how someone like Solanas thinks. I like this book especially much though beczuse of in the way it is written. I have read many philosophers, Locke, Machiavelli etc... and I think this book is more real in that she writes as she talks. I like that, no false impressions. What I find sad about Solanas is that had she not killed Warhol, probably noone would be reading this book today, or the least bit interested. To a lot of people the name Valerie Solanas means nothing, but when you say, "Valerie Solanas, the killer of Andy warhol" suddenly a head or two turns. If you are interested in Solanas definitely see "I Shot Andy Warhol" a fabulous movie starring, Lili Taylor.

First off, Val was not deranged..she was hyperintelligent and an intense counterculturist. This aggresiveness oughtta be refreshing to those used to passive whitewashed politicos of now or yesteryear. her bright, blunt viewpoints had to be intentionally chalked with shock-value (i.e implying genocide, fanatic feminism) in order to motivate a slacker society. Before buying this, i suggest you watch I SHOT ANDY WARHOL. Her personality and most importantly, her bio prior to all this, is explained.

I think that this book is really interesting. I love the style that it is written in. I kind of go along with its philosophy in a kind of non-committal way but I don't think that we all should start cutting up men... Anyway, this is something thats really quite fun to read and us females could always do with another Valerie so BUY IT!

That woman is absolutely right!
This pamphlet is a most enjoyable and at the same time shocking revelation about our society (it is a man`s world!)and Solanas screams out the truth behind it. She might be a bit too radical when she wants to kill all the men.
(I, for my part would simply asign them to their biological function and to that alone! no man should be involved in politics, economics or any affairs of the state as such. The biological function would entail looking good (like a peacock!)and learning how to love a woman.)

One of the best books on the feminist shelve, sharp and brilliantly written.
Read it and you won`t consent to the men's world easily ever again.

And btw, I think, Valerie Solanas did not kill Warhol, but only injured him. On the back of the book Solanas is quoted on the shooting of Andy Warhol: "I consider that a moral act. And I consider it immoral that I missed. I should have done target practice."
