Valerie Solanas Quote
The male.... tries to convince himself and women - he's succeeded best at convincing women - that the female function is to bear and raise children and relax, comfort and boost the egos of the male, that her function is such as to make her interchangeable with every other female. In actual fact, the female function is to relate, groove, love and be herself, irreplacable by anyone else; the male function is to produce sperm. We now have sperm banks.
p. 6 (hyphens (not en- or em-dashes); "the egos of the male" so in original & "irreplacable" so in original). - SCUM MANIFESTO (1967)
