Should Men Be Cut Up?

In Rothbard’s great piece, featured today (and also available as a chapter in Egalitarianism as a Revolt Against Nature), he mentions Valerie Solanis’s SCUM (Society for Cutting Up Men) Manifesto. This thing really has to be seen to be believed. But please note carefully, this is a NASTY NASTY document. Nasty language is the least of how nasty this document is. This will turn your stomach, especially to know, as Rothbard mentions, that Solanis was praised by the New Left feminists for this and for her attempted assassination of Andy Warhol.

“It is now technically feasible to reproduce without the aid of males (or, for that matter, females) and to produce only females. We must begin immediately to do so. Retaining the male has not even the dubious purpose of reproduction. The male is a biological accident: the Y (male) gene is an incomplete X (female) gene, that is, it has an incomplete set of chromosomes. In other words, the male is an incomplete female, a walking abortion, aborted at the gene stage. To be male is to be deficient, emotionally limited; maleness is a deficiency disease and males are emotional cripples.”

(Fun fact: Andy Warhol (Warhola), though extremely private about it, always maintained the Eastern Orthodoxy of his Slovak parents. He attended church EVERY DAY of his adult life. [source: lecture by the Director of the Andy Warhol museum])
