Katherine Angel on Valerie Solanas, Bad Dads, and the Literary Pleasures of Pure Rage

For a while there, I became obsessed with Valerie Solanas’s SCUM Manifesto. How can one not, with this opening line?. Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation, and destroy the male sex.
