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.

It is now technically possible to reproduce without the aid of males

(or, for that matter, females) and to produce only females. We must

begin immediately to do so. The male is a biological accident: the y

(male) gene is an incomplete x (female) gene, that is, 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.

The male is completely egocentric, trapped inside himself, incapable

of empathizing or identifying with others, of love, friendship,

affection or tenderness. He is a completely isolated unit, incapable of

rapport with anyone. His responses are entirely visceral, not cerebral;

his intelligence is a mere tool in the service of his drives and needs;

he is incapable of mental passion, mental interaction; he can't relate

to anything other than his own physical sensations. He is a half dead,

unresponsive lump, incapable of giving or receiving pleasure or

happiness; consequently, he is at best an utter bore, an inoffensive

blob, since only those capable of absorption in others can be charming.

He is trapped in a twilight zone halfway between humans and apes, and is

far worse off than the apes because, unlike the apes, he is capable of a

large array of negative feelings--hate, jealousy, contempt, disgust,

guilt, shame, doubt--and moreover he is *aware* or what he is or isn't.

Although completely physical, the male is unfit even for stud

service. Even assuming mechanical proficiency, which few men have, he

is, first of all, incapable of zestfully, lustfully, tearing off a

piece, but is instead eaten up with guilt, shame, fear and insecurity,

feelings rooted in male nature, which the most enlightened training can

only minimize; second, the physical feeling he attains is next to

nothing; and, third, he is not empathizing with his partner, but is

obsessed with how he's doing, turning in an A performance, doing a good

plumbing job. To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he's a

machine, a walking dildo. It's often said that men use women. Use them

for what? Surely not pleasure.

Eaten up with guilt, shame, fears and insecurities and obtaining, if

he's lucky, a barely perceptible physical feeling, the male is,

nonetheless, obsessed with screwing; he'll swim a river of snot, wade

nostril-deep through a mile of vomit, if he thinks there'll be a

friendly pussy awaiting him. He'll screw a woman he despises, any

snaggle-toothed hag, and, furthermore, pay for the opportunity. Why?

Relieving physical tension isn't the answer, as masturbation suffices

for that. It's not ego satisfaction; that doesn't explain screwing

corpses and babies.

Completely egocentric, unable to relate, empathize or identify, and

filled with a vast, pervasive, diffuse sexuality, the male is

psychically passive. He hates his passivity, so he projects it onto

women, defines the male as active, then sets out to prove that he is

("prove he's a Man"). His main means of attempting to prove it is

screwing (Big Man with a Big Dick tearing off a Big Piece). Since he's

attempting to prove an error, he must "prove" it again and again.

Screwing, then, is a desperate, compulsive attempt to prove he's not

passive, not a woman; but he *is* passive and *does* want to be a woman.

Being an incomplete female, the male spends his life attempting to

complete himself, to become female. He attempts to do this by

constantly seeking out, fraternizing with and trying to live through and

fuse with the female, and by claiming as his own all female

characteristics--emotional strength and independence, forcefulness,

dynamism, decisiveness, coolness, objectivity, assertiveness, courage,

integrity, vitality, intensity, depth of character, grooviness, etc.

--and projecting onto women all male traits--vanity, frivolity,

triviality, weakness, etc. It should be said, though, that the male has

one glaring area of superiority over the female--public relations. (He

has done a brilliant job of convincing millions of women that men are

women and women are men.) The male claim that females find fulfillment

through motherhood and sexuality reflects what males think they'd find

fulfilling if they were female.

Women, in other words, don't have penis envy; men have pussy envy.

When the male accepts his passivity, defines himself as a woman (males

as well as females think men are women and women are men), and becomes a

transvestite he loses his desire to screw (or to do anything else, for

that matter; he fulfills himself as a drag queen) and gets his cock

chopped off. He then achieves a continuous diffuse sexual feeling from

"being a woman". Screwing is, for a man, a defense against his desire

to be female. Sex is itself a sublimation.

The male, because of his obsession to compensate for not being

female combined with his inability to relate and to feel compassion, has

made of the world a shitpile. He is responsible for:

*War:* The male's normal method of compensation for not being

female, namely, getting his Big Gun off, is grossly inadequate, as he

can get it off only a very limited number of times; so he gets it off on

a really massive scale, and proves to the entire world that he's a

"Man". Since he has no compassion or ability to empathize or identify,

proving his manhood is worth an endless number of lives, including his

own--his own life being worthless, he would rather go out in a blaze of

glory than plod grimly on for fifty more years.

*Niceness, Politeness and "Dignity":* Every man, deep down, knows

he's a worthless piece of shit. Overwhelmed by a sense of animalism and

deeply ashamed of it; wanting, not to express himself, but to hide from

others his total physicality, total egocentricity, the hate and contempt

he feels for other men, and to hide from himself the hate and contempt

he suspects other men feel for him; having a crudely constructed nervous

system that is easily upset by the least display of emotion or feeling,

the male tries to enforce a "social" code that ensures a perfect

blandness, unsullied by the slightest trace of feeling or upsetting

opinion. He uses terms like "copulate", "sexual congress", "have

relations with" (to men, "*sexual* relations" is a redundancy), overlaid

with stilted manners; the suit on the chimp.

*Money, Marriage and Prostitution, Work and Prevention of an

Automated Society:* There is no human reason for money or for anyone to

work more than two or three hours a week at the very most. All

non-creative jobs (practically all jobs now being done) could have been

automated long ago, and in a moneyless society everyone can have as much

of the best of everything as she wants. But there are non-human, male

reasons for maintaining the money-work system:

1. Pussy. Despising his highly inadequate self, overcome with

intense anxiety and a deep, profound loneliness when by his empty self,

desperate to attach himself to any female in dim hopes of completing

himself, in the mystical belief that by touching gold he'll turn to

gold, the male craves the continuous companionship of women. The

company of the lowest female is preferable to his own or that of other

men, who serve only to remind him of his repulsiveness. But females,

unless very young or very sick, must be coerced or bribed into male

company.

2. Supply the non-relating male with the delusion of usefulness,

and enable him to try to justify his existence by digging holes and

filling them up. Leisure time horrifies the male, who will have nothing

to do but contemplate his grotesque self. Unable to relate or to love,

the male must work. Females crave absorbing, emotionally satisfying,

meaningful activity, but lacking the opportunity or ability for this,

they prefer to idle and waste away their time in ways of their own

choosing--sleeping, shopping, bowling, shooting pool, playing cards and

other games, breeding, reading, walking around, daydreaming, eating,

playing with themselves, popping pills, going to the movies, getting

analyzed, traveling, raising dogs and cats, lolling on the beach,

swimming, watching T.V., listening to music, decorating their houses,

gardening, sewing, nightclubbing, dancing, visiting, "improving their

minds" (taking courses), and absorbing "culture" (lectures, plays,

concerts, "arty" movies). Therefore, many females would, even assuming

complete economic equality between the sexes, prefer living with males

or peddling their asses on the street, thus having most of their time

for themselves, to spending many hours of their days doing boring,

stultifying, non-creative work for somebody else, functioning as less

than animals, as machines, or, at best,--if able to get a "good"

job--co-managing the shitpile. What will liberate women, therefore,

>from male control is the total elimination of the money-work system, not

the attainment of economic equality with men within it.

3. Power and control. Unmasterful in his personal relations with

women, the male attains to general masterfulness by the manipulation of

money and of everything and everybody controlled by money, in other

words, of everything and everybody.

4. Love substitute. Unable to give love or affection, the male

gives money. It makes him feel motherly. The mother gives milk; he

gives bread. He is the Breadwinner.

5. Provides the male with a goal. Incapable of enjoying the

moment, the male needs something to look forward to, and money provides

him with an eternal, never-ending goal: Just think what you could do

with 80 trillion dollars--Invest it! And in three years time you'd have

300 trillion dollars!!!

6. Provides the basis for the male's major opportunity to control

and manipulate--fatherhood.

*Fatherhood and Mental Illness (fear, cowardice, timidity, humility,

insecurity, passivity):* Mother wants what's best for her kids; Daddy

only wants what's best for Daddy, that is peace and quiet, pandering to

his delusion of dignity ("respect"), a good reflection on himself

(status) and the opportunity to control and manipulate, or, if he's an

"enlightened" father, to "give guidance". His daughter, in addition, he

wants sexually--he gives her *hand* in marriage; the other part is for

him. Daddy, unlike Mother, can never give in to his kids, as he must,

at all costs, preserve his delusion of decisiveness, forcefulness,

always-rightness and strength. Never getting one's way leads to lack of

self-confidence in one's ability to cope with the world and to a passive

acceptance of the status quo. Mother loves her kids, although she

sometimes gets angry, but anger blows over quickly and even while it

exists, doesn't preclude love and basic acceptance. Emotionally

diseased Daddy doesn't love his kids; he approves of them--if they're

"good", that is, if they're nice, "respectful", obedient, subservient to

his will, quiet and not given to unseemly displays of temper that would

be most upsetting to Daddy's easily disturbed male nervous system--in

other words, if they're passive vegetables. If they're not "good", he

doesn't get angry--not if he's a modern, "civilized" father (the

old-fashioned ranting, raving brute is preferable, as he is so

ridiculous he can be easily despised)--but rather expresses disapproval,

a state that, unlike anger, endures and precludes a basic acceptance,

leaving the kid with a feeling of worthlessness and a lifelong obsession

with being approved of; the result is fear of independent thought, as

this leads to unconventional, disapproved of opinions and way of life.

For the kid to want Daddy's approval it must respect Daddy, and,

being garbage, Daddy can make sure that he is respected only by

remaining aloof, by distantness, by acting on the precept "familiarity

breeds contempt", which is, of course, true, if one is contemptible. By

being distant and aloof, he is able to remain unknown, mysterious, and,

thereby, to inspire fear ("respect").

Disapproval of emotional "scenes" leads to fear of strong emotion,

fear of one's own anger and hatred, and to a fear of facing reality, as

facing it leads at first to anger and hatred. Fear of anger and hatred

combined with a lack of self-confidence in one's ability to cope with

and change the world, or even to affect in the slightest way one's own

destiny, leads to a mindless belief that the world and most people in it

are nice and that the most banal, trivial amusements are great fun and

deeply pleasurable.

The effect of fatherhood on males, specifically, is to make them

"Men", that is, highly defensive of all impulses to passivity, faggotry,

and of desires to be female. Every boy wants to imitate his mother, be

her, fuse with her, but Daddy forbids this; *he* is the mother; *he*

gets to fuse with her. So he tells the boy, sometimes directly,

sometimes indirectly, to not be a sissy, to act like a "Man". The boy,

scared shitless of and "respecting" his father, complies, and becomes

just like Daddy, that model of "Man"-hood, the all-American ideal--the

well-behaved heterosexual dullard.

The effect of fatherhood on females is to make them male--dependent,

passive, domestic, animalistic, nice, insecure, approval and security

seekers, cowardly, humble, "respectful" of authorities and men, closed,

not fully responsive, half dead, trivial, dull, conventional, flattened

out and thoroughly contemptible. Daddy's Girl, always tense and

fearful, uncool, unanalytical, lacking objectivity, appraises Daddy, and

thereafter, other men, against a background of fear ("respect") and is

not only unable to see the empty shell behind the aloof facade, but

accepts the male definition of himself as superior, as a female, and of

herself, as inferior, as a male, which, thanks to Daddy, she really is.

It is the increase of fatherhood, resulting from the increased and

widespread affluence that fatherhood needs in order to thrive, that has

caused the general increase of mindlessness and the decline of women in

the United States since the 1920s. The close association of affluence

with fatherhood has led, for the most part, to only the wrong girls,

namely, the "privileged" middle-class girls, getting "educated".

The effect of fathers, in sum, has been to corrode the world with

maleness. The male has a negative Midas touch--everything he touches

turns to shit.

*Suppression of Individuality, Animalism (domesticity and

motherhood) and Functionalism:* The male is just a bundle of conditioned

reflexes, incapable of a mentally free response; he is tied to his early

conditioning, determined completely by his past experiences. His

earliest experiences are with his mother, and he is throughout his life

tied to her. It never becomes completely clear to the male that he is

not part of his mother, that he is he and she is she.

His greatest need is to be guided, sheltered, protected and admired

by Mama (men expect women to adore what men shrink from in

horror--themselves) and, being completely physical, he yearns to spend

his time (that's not spent "out in the world" grimly defending against

his passivity) wallowing in basic animal activities--eating, sleeping,

shitting, relaxing and being soothed by Mama. Passive, rattle-headed

Daddy's Girl, ever eager for approval, for a pat on the head, for the

"respect" of any passing piece of garbage, is easily reduced to Mama,

mindless ministrator to physical needs, soother of the weary, apey brow,

booster of the puny ego, appreciator of the contemptible, a hot water

bottle with tits.

The reduction to animals of the women of the most backward segment

of society--the "privileged, educated" middle-class, the backwash of

humanity--where Daddy reigns supreme, has been so thorough that they try

to groove on labor pains and lie around in the most advanced nation in

the world in the middle of the twentieth century with babies chomping

away on their tits. It's not for the kids' sake, though, that the

"experts" tell women that Mama should stay home and grovel in animalism,

but for Daddy's; the tit's for Daddy to hang onto; the labor pains for

Daddy to vicariously groove on (half dead, he needs awfully strong

stimuli to make him respond).

Reducing the female to an animal, to Mama, to a male, is necessary

for psychological as well as practical reasons: the male is a mere

member of the species, interchangeable with every other male. He has no

deep-seated individuality, which stems from what intrigues you, what

outside yourself absorbs you, what you're in relation to. Completely

self-absorbed, capable of being in relation only to their bodies and

physical sensations, males differ from each other only to the degree and

in the ways they attempt to defend against their passivity and against

their desire to be female.

The female's individuality, which he is acutely aware of, but which

he doesn't comprehend and isn't capable of relating to or grasping

emotionally, frightens and upsets him and fills him with envy. So he

denies it in her and proceeds to define everyone in terms of his or her

function or use, assigning to himself, of course, the most important

functions--doctor, president, scientist--thereby providing himself with

an identity, if not individuality, and tries to convince himself and

women (he's succeeded best at convincing women) that the female function

is to bear and raise children and to relax, comfort and boost the ego 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, irreplaceable by anyone else; the male

function is to produce sperm. We now have sperm banks.

*Prevention of Privacy:* Although the male, being ashamed of what he

is and of almost everything he does, insists on privacy and secrecy in

all aspects of his life, he has no real *regard* for privacy. Being

empty, not being a complete, separate being, having no self to groove on

and needing to be constantly in female company, he sees nothing at all

wrong in intruding himself on any woman's thoughts, even a total

stranger's, anywhere at any time, but rather feels indignant and

insulted when put down for doing so, as well as confused--he can't, for

the life of him, understand why anyone would prefer so much as one

minute of solitude to the company of any creep around. Wanting to

become a woman, he strives to be constantly around females, which is the

closest he can get to becoming one, so he created a "society" based on

the family--a male-female couple and their kids (the excuse for the

family's existence), who live virtually on top of one another,

unscrupulously violating the females' rights, privacy and sanity.

*Isolation, Suburbs and Prevention of Community:* Our society is not

a community, but merely a collection of isolated family units.

Desperately insecure, fearing his woman will leave him if she is exposed

to other men or to anything remotely resembling life, the male seeks to

isolate her from other men and from what little civilization there is,

so he moves her out to the suburbs, a collection of self-absorbed

couples and their kids. Isolation enables him to try to maintain his

pretense of being an individual by becoming a "rugged individualist", a

loner, equating non-co-operation and solitariness with individuality.

There is yet another reason for the male to isolate himself: every

man is an island. Trapped inside himself, emotionally isolated, unable

to relate, the male has a horror of civilization, people, cities,

situations requiring an ability to understand and relate to people. So,

like a scared rabbit, he scurries off, dragging Daddy's little asshole

along with him to the wilderness, the suburbs, or, in the case of the

"hippie"--he's way out, Man! --all the way out to the cow pasture where

he can fuck and breed undisturbed and mess around with his beads and

flute.

The "hippie", whose desire to be a "Man", a "rugged individualist",

isn't quite as strong as the average man's, and who, in addition, is

excited by the thought of having lots of women accessible to him, rebels

against the harshness of a Breadwinner's life and the monotony of one

woman. In the name of sharing and co-operation, he forms the commune or

tribe, which, for all its togetherness and partly because of it (the

commune, being an extended family, is an extended violation of the

females' rights, privacy and sanity) is no more a community than normal

"society".

A true community consists of individuals--not mere species members,

not couples--respecting each other's individuality and privacy, at the

same time interacting with each other mentally and emotionally--free

spirits in free relation to each other-and co-operating with each other

to achieve common ends. Traditionalists say the basic unit of "society"

is the family; "hippies" say the tribe; no one says the individual.

The "hippie" babbles on about individuality, but has no more

conception of it than any other man. He desires to get back to Nature,

back to the wilderness, back to the home of the furry animals that he's

one of, away from the city, where there is at least a trace, a bare

beginning of civilization, to live at the species level, his time taken

up with simple, non-intellectual activities--farming, fucking, bead

stringing. The most important activity of the commune, the one on which

it is based, is gangbanging. The "hippie" is enticed to the commune

mainly by the prospect of all the free pussy--the main commodity to be

shared, to be had just for the asking but, blinded by greed, he fails to

anticipate all the other men he has to share with, or the jealousies and

possessiveness of the pussies themselves.

Men cannot co-operate to achieve a common end, because each man's

end is all the pussy for himself. The commune, therefore, is doomed to

failure: each "hippie" will, in panic, grab the first simpleton who digs

him and whisk her off to the suburbs as fast as he can. The male cannot

progress socially, but merely swings back and forth from isolation to

gangbanging.

*Conformity:* Although he wants to be an individual, the male is

scared of anything in himself that is the slightest bit different from

other men; it causes him to suspect that he's not really a "Man", that

he's passive and totally sexual, a highly upsetting suspicion. If other

men are A and he's not, he must not be a man; he must be a fag. So he

tries to affirm his "Manhood" by being like all the other men.

Differentness in other men, as well as in himself, threatens him; it

means they're fags whom he must at all costs avoid, so he tries to make

sure that all other men conform.

The male dares to be different to the degree that he accepts his

passivity and his desire to be female, his fagginess. The farthest out

male is the drag queen, but he, although different from most men, is

exactly like all other drag queens; like the functionalist, he has an

identity--he is a female. He tries to define all his troubles away--but

still no individuality. Not completely convinced that he's a woman,

highly insecure about being sufficiently female, he conforms

compulsively to the man-made feminine stereotype, ending up as nothing

but a bundle of stilted mannerisms.

To be sure he's a "Man", the male must see to it that the female be

clearly a "Woman", the opposite of a "Man", that is, the female must act

like a faggot. And Daddy's Girl, all of whose female instincts were

wrenched out of her when little, easily and obligingly adapts herself to

the role.

*Authority and Government:* Having no sense of right or wrong, no

conscience, which can only stem from an ability to empathize with

others...having no faith in his non-existent self, being necessarily

competitive and, by nature, unable to co-operate, the male feels a need

for external guidance and control. So he created authorities--priests,

experts, bosses, leaders, etc. --and government. Wanting the female

(Mama) to guide him, but unable to accept this fact (he is, after all, a

*MAN*), wanting to play Woman, to usurp her function as Guider and

Protector, he sees to it that all authorities are male.

There's no reason why a society consisting of rational beings

capable of empathizing with each other, complete and having no natural

reason to compete, should have a government, laws or leaders.

*Philosophy, Religion and Morality Based on Sex:* The male's

inability to relate to anybody or anything makes his life pointless and

meaningless (the ultimate male insight is that life is absurd), so he

invented philosophy and religion. Being empty, he looks outward, not

only for guidance and control, but for salvation and for the meaning of

life. Happiness being for him impossible on this earth, he invented

Heaven.

For a man, having no ability to empathize with others and being

totally sexual, "wrong" is sexual "license" and engaging in "deviant"

("unmanly") sexual practices, that is, not defending against his

passivity and total sexuality which, if indulged, would destroy

"civilization", since "civilization" is based entirely on the male need

to defend himself against these characteristics. For a woman (according

to men), "wrong" is any behavior that would entice men into sexual

"license"--that is, not placing male needs above her own and not being a

faggot.

Religion not only provides the male with a goal (Heaven) and helps

keep women tied to men, but offers rituals through which he can try to

expiate the guilt and shame he feels at not defending himself enough

against his sexual impulses; in essence, that guilt and shame he feels

at being a male.

Most men, utterly cowardly, project their inherent weaknesses onto

women, label them female weaknesses and believe themselves to have

female strengths; most philosophers, not quite so cowardly, face the

fact that male lacks exist in men, but still can't face the fact that

they exist in men only. So they label the male condition the Human

Condition, pose their nothingness problem, which horrifies them, as a

philosophical dilemma, thereby giving stature to their animalism,

grandiloquently label their nothingness their "Identity Problem", and

proceed to prattle on pompously about the "Crisis of the Individual",

the "Essence of Being", "Existence preceding Essence", "Existential

Modes of Being", etc., etc.

A woman not only takes her identity and individuality for granted,

but knows instinctively that the only wrong is to hurt others, and that

the meaning of life is love.

*Prejudice (racial, ethnic, religious, etc.):* The male needs

scapegoats onto whom he can project his failings and inadequacies and

upon whom he can vent his frustration at not being female.

*Competition, Prestige, Status, Formal Education, Ignorance and

Social and Economic Classes:* Having an obsessive desire to be admired

by women, but no intrinsic worth, the male constructs a highly

artificial society enabling him to appropriate the appearance of worth

through money, prestige, "high" social class, degrees, professional

position and knowledge and, by pushing as many other men as possible

down professionally, socially, economically, and educationally.

The purpose of "higher" education is not to educate but to exclude

as many as possible from the various professions.

The male, totally physical, incapable of mental rapport, although

able to understand and use knowledge and ideas, is unable to relate to

them, to grasp them emotionally; he does not value knowledge and ideas

for their own sake (they're just means to ends) and, consequently, feels

no need for mental companions, no need to cultivate the intellectual

potentialities of others. On the contrary, the male has a vested

interest in ignorance; he knows that an enlightened, aware female

population will mean the end of him. The healthy, conceited female

wants the company of equals whom she can respect and groove on; the male

and the sick, insecure, unself-confident male female crave the company

of worms.

No genuine social revolution can be accomplished by the male, as the

male on top wants the status quo, and all the male on the bottom wants

is to be the male on top. The male "rebel" is a farce; this is the

male's "society", made by *him* to satisfy *his* needs. He's never

satisfied, because he's not capable of being satisfied. Ultimately,

what the male "rebel" is rebelling against is being male. The male

changes only when forced to do so by technology, when he has no choice,

when "society" reaches the stage where he must change or die. We're at

that stage now; if women don't get their asses in gear fast, we may very

well all die.

*Prevention of Conversation:* Being completely self-centered and

unable to relate to anything outside himself, the male's "conversation",

when not about himself, is an impersonal droning on, removed from

anything of human value. Male "intellectual conversation" is a

strained, compulsive attempt to impress the female.

Daddy's Girl, passive, adaptable, respectful of and in awe of the

male, allows him to impose his hideously dull chatter on her. This is

not too difficult for her, as the tension and anxiety, the lack of cool,

the insecurity and self-doubt, the unsureness of her own feelings and

sensations that Daddy instilled in her make her perceptions superficial

and render her unable to see that the male's babble is a babble; like

the aesthete "appreciating" the blob that's labeled "Great Art", she

believes she's grooving on what bores the shit out of her. Not only

does she permit his babble to dominate, she adapts her own

"conversation" accordingly.

Trained from early childhood in niceness, politeness and "dignity",

in pandering to the male need to disguise his animalism, she obligingly

reduces her "conversation" to small talk, a bland insipid avoidance of

any topic beyond the utterly trivial--or, if "educated", to

"intellectual" discussion, that is, impersonal discoursing on irrelevant

abstractions--the Gross National Product, the Common Market, the

influence of Rimbaud on symbolist painting. So adept is she at

pandering that it eventually becomes second nature and she continues to

pander to men even when in the company of other females only.

Apart from pandering, her "conversation" is further limited by her

insecurity about expressing deviant, original opinions and the

self-absorption based on insecurity and that prevents her conversation

>from being charming. Niceness, politeness, "dignity", insecurity and

self-absorption are hardly conducive to intensity and wit, qualities a

conversation must have to be worthy of the name. Such conversation is

hardly rampant, as only completely self-confident, arrogant, outgoing,

proud, tough-minded females are capable of intense, bitchy, witty

conversation.

*Prevention of Friendship (Love):* Men have contempt for themselves,

for all other men, and for all women who respect and pander to them; the

insecure, approval-seeking, pandering male females have contempt for

themselves and for all women like them; the self-confident, swinging,

thrill-seeking female females have contempt for men and for the

pandering male females. In short, contempt is the order of the day.

Love is not dependency or sex, but friendship, and, therefore, love

can't exist between two males, between a male and a female or between

two females, one or both of whom is a mindless, insecure, pandering

male; like conversation, love can exist only between two secure,

free-wheeling, independent, groovy female females, since friendship is

based on respect, not contempt.

Even among groovy females deep friendships seldom occur in

adulthood, as almost all of them are either tied up with men in order to

survive economically, or bogged down in hacking their way through the

jungle and in trying to keep their heads above the amorphous mass. Love

can't flourish in a society based on money and meaningless work; it

requires complete economic as well as personal freedom, leisure time and

the opportunity to engage in intensely absorbing, emotionally satisfying

activities which, when shared with those you respect, lead to deep

friendship. Our "society" provides practically no opportunity to engage

in such activities.

Having stripped the world of conversation, friendship and love, the

male offers us these paltry substitutes:

*"Great Art" and "Culture":* The male "artist" attempts to solve his

dilemma of not being able to live, of not being female, by constructing

a highly artificial world in which the male is heroized, that is,

displays female traits, and the female is reduced to highly limited,

insipid subordinate roles, that is, to being male.

The male "artistic" aim being, not to communicate (having nothing

inside him, he has nothing to say), but to disguise his animalism, he

resorts to symbolism and obscurity ("deep" stuff). The vast majority of

people, particularly the "educated" ones, lacking faith in their own

judgment, humble, respectful of authority ("Daddy knows best" is

translated into adult language as "Critic knows best", "Writer knows

best", "Ph.D knows best"), are easily conned into believing that

obscurity, evasiveness, incomprehensibility, indirectness, ambiguity and

boredom are marks of depth and brilliance.

"Great Art" proves that men are superior to women, that men are

women, being labeled "Great Art", almost all of which, as the

anti-feminists are fond of reminding us, was created by men. We know

that "Great Art" is great because male authorities have told us so, and

we can't claim otherwise, as only those with exquisite sensitivities far

superior to ours can perceive and appreciate the greatness, the proof of

their superior sensitivity being that they appreciate the slop that they

appreciate.

Appreciating is the sole diversion of the "cultivated"; passive and

incompetent, lacking imagination and wit, they must try to make do with

that; unable to create their own diversions, to create a little world of

their own, to affect in the smallest way their environments, they must

accept what's given; unable to create or relate, they spectate.

Absorbing "culture" is a desperate, frantic attempt to groove in an

ungroovy world, to escape the horror of a sterile, mindless existence.

"Culture" provides a sop to the egos of the incompetent, a means of

rationalizing passive spectating; they can pride themselves on their

ability to appreciate the "finer" things, to see a jewel where there is

only a turd (they want to be admired for admiring). Lacking faith in

their ability to change anything, resigned to the status quo, they have

to see beauty in turds because, so far as they can see, turds are all

they'll ever have.

The veneration of "Art" and "Culture"--besides leading many women

into boring, passive activity that distracts from more important and

rewarding activities, from cultivating active abilities--allows the

"artist" to be set up as one possessing superior feelings, perceptions,

insights and judgments, thereby undermining the faith of insecure women

in the value and validity of their own feelings, perceptions, insights

and judgments.

The male, having a very limited range of feelings and, consequently,

very limited perceptions, insights and judgments, needs the "artist" to

guide him, to tell him what life is all about. But the male "artist",

being totally sexual, unable to relate to anything beyond his own

physical sensations, having nothing to express beyond the insight that

for the male life is meaningless and absurd, cannot be an artist. How

can he who is not capable of life tell us what life is all about? A

"male artist" is a contradiction in terms. A degenerate can only

produce degenerate "art". The true artist is every self-confident,

healthy female, and in a female society the only Art, the only Culture,

will be conceited, kookie, funky females grooving on each other and on

everything else in the universe.

*Sexuality:* Sex is not part of a relationship; on the contrary, it

is a solitary experience, non-creative, a gross waste of time. The

female can easily--far more easily than she may think--condition away

her sex drive, leaving her completely cool and cerebral and free to

pursue truly worthy relationships and activities; but the male, who

seems to dig women sexually and who seeks constantly to arouse them,

stimulates the highly-sexed female to frenzies of lust, throwing her

into a sex bag from which few women ever escape. The lecherous male

excited the lustful female; he has to--when the female transcends her

body, rises above animalism, the male, whose ego consists of his cock,

will disappear.

Sex is the refuge of the mindless. And the more mindless the woman,

the more deeply embedded in the male "culture", in short, the nicer she

is, the more sexual she is. The nicest women in our "society" are

raving sex maniacs. But, being just awfully, awfully nice they don't,

of course, descend to fucking--that's uncouth--rather they make love,

commune by means of their bodies and establish sensual rapport; the

literary ones are attuned to the throb of Eros and attain a clutch upon

the Universe; the religious have spiritual communion with the Divine

Sensualism; the mystics merge with the Erotic Principle and blend with

the Cosmos, and the acid heads contact their erotic cells.

On the other hand, those females least embedded in the male

"Culture", the least nice, those crass and simple souls who reduce

fucking to fucking, who are too childish for the grown-up world of

suburbs, mortgages, mops and baby shit, too selfish to raise kids and

husbands, too uncivilized to give a shit for anyone's opinion of them,

too arrogant to respect Daddy, the "Greats" or the deep wisdom of the

Ancients, who trust only their own animal, gutter instincts, who equate

Culture with chicks, whose sole diversion is prowling for emotional

thrills and excitement, who are given to disgusting, nasty, upsetting

"scenes", hateful, violent bitches given to slamming those who unduly

irritate them in the teeth, who'd sink a shiv into a man's chest or ram

an icepick up his asshole as soon as look at him, if they knew they

could get away with it, in short, those who, by the standards of our

"culture" are SCUM...these females are cool and relatively cerebral and

skirting asexuality.

Unhampered by propriety, niceness, discretion, public opinion,

"morals", the "respect" of assholes, always funky, dirty, low-down SCUM

gets around...and around and around...they've seen the whole show--every

bit of it-the fucking scene, the sucking scene, the dyke scene--they've

covered the whole waterfront, been under every dock and pier--the peter

pier, the pussy pier...you've got to go through a lot of sex to get to

anti-sex, and SCUM's been through it all, and they're now ready for a

new show; they want to crawl out from under the dock, move, take off,

sink out. But SCUM doesn't yet prevail; SCUM's still in the gutter of

our "society", which, if it's not deflected from its present course and

if the Bomb doesn't drop on it, will hump itself to death.

*Boredom:* Life in a "society" made by and for creatures who, when

they are not grim and depressing are utter bores, can only be, when not

grim and depressing, an utter bore.

*Secrecy, Censorship, Suppression of Knowledge and Ideas, and

Exposes:* Every male's deep-seated, secret, most hideous fear is the

fear of being discovered to be not a female, but a male, a subhuman

animal. Although niceness, politeness and "dignity" suffice to prevent

his exposure on a personal level, in order to prevent the general

exposure of the male sex as a whole and to maintain his unnatural

dominant position in "society", the male must resort to:

1. Censorship. Responding reflexively to isolated words and

phrases rather than cerebrally to overall meanings, the male attempts to

prevent the arousal and discovery of his animalism by censoring not only

"pornography", but any work containing "dirty" words, no matter in what

context they are used.

2. Suppression of all ideas and knowledge that might expose him or

threaten his dominant position in "society". Much biological and

psychological data is suppressed, because it is proof of the male's

gross inferiority to the female. Also, the problem of mental illness

will never be solved while the male maintains control, because first,

men have a vested interest in it--only females who have very few of

their marbles will allow males the slightest bit of control over

anything, and second, the male cannot admit to the role that fatherhood

plays in causing mental illness.

3. Exposes. The male's chief delight in life--insofar as the

dense, grim male can ever be said to delight in anything--is in exposing

others. It doesn't much matter what they're exposed as, so long as

they're exposed; it distracts attention from himself. Exposing others

as enemy agents (Communists and Socialists) is one of his favorite

pastimes, as it removes the source of the threat to him not only from

himself, but from the country and the Western world. The bugs up his

ass aren't in him; they're in Russia.

*Distrust:* Unable to empathize or feel affection or loyalty, being

exclusively out for himself, the male has no sense of fair play;

cowardly, needing constantly to pander to the female to win her

approval, that he is helpless without, always on edge lest his

animalism, his maleness be discovered, always needing to cover up, he

must lie constantly; being empty, he has no honor or integrity--he

doesn't know what those words mean. The male, in short, is treacherous,

and the only appropriate attitude in a male "society" is cynicism and

distrust.

*Ugliness:* Being totally sexual, incapable of cerebral or aesthetic

responses, totally materialistic and greedy, the male, besides

inflicting on the world "Great Art", has decorated his unlandscaped

cities with ugly buildings (both inside and out), ugly decors,

billboards, highways, cars, garbage trucks and, most notably, his own

putrid self.

*Hate and Violence:* The male is eaten up with tension, with

frustration at not being female, at not being capable of ever achieving

satisfaction or pleasure of any kind; eaten up with hate--not rational

hate that is directed against those who abuse or insult you--but

irrational, indiscriminate hate...hatred, at bottom, of his own

worthless self.

Violence serves as an outlet for his hate and, in addition--the male

being capable only of sexual responses and needing very strong stimuli

to stimulate his half-dead self--provides him with a little sexual

thrill.

*Disease and Death:* All diseases are curable, and the aging process

and death are due to disease; it is possible, therefore, never to age

and to live forever. In fact, the problems of aging and death could be

solved within a few years, if an all-out, massive scientific assault

were made on the problem. This, however, will not occur within the male

establishment, because:

1. The many male scientists who shy away from biological research,

terrified of the discovery that males are females, and show marked

preference for virile, "manly" war and death programs.

2. The discouragement of many potential scientists from scientific

careers by the rigidity, boringness, expensiveness, time-consumingness

and unfair exclusivity of our "higher" educational system.

3. Propaganda disseminated by insecure male professionals, who

jealously guard their positions, so that only a highly select few can

comprehend abstract scientific concepts.

4. Widespread lack of self-confidence brought about by the father

system that discourages many talented girls from becoming scientists.

5. Lack of automation. There now exists a wealth of data which, if

sorted out and correlated, would reveal the cure for cancer and several

other diseases and possibly the key to life itself. But the data is so

massive it requires high speed computers to correlate it all. The

institution of computers will be delayed interminably under the male

control system, since the male has a horror of being replaced by

machines.

6. The money system's insatiable need for new products. Most of

the few scientists around who aren't working on death programs are tied

up doing research for corporations.

7. The male likes death--it excites him sexually and, already dead

inside, he wants to die.

Incapable of a positive state of happiness, which is the only thing

that can justify one's existence, the male is, at best, relaxed,

comfortable, neutral, and this condition is extremely short-lived, as

boredom, a negative state, soon sets in; he is, therefore, doomed to an

existence of suffering relieved only by occasional, fleeting stretches

of restfulness, which state he can achieve only at the expense of some

female. The male is, by his very nature, a leech, an emotional parasite

and, therefore, not ethically entitled to live, as no one has the right

to live at someone else's expense.

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 existence over men. The elimination of any

male is, therefore, a righteous and good act, an act highly beneficial

to women as well as an act of mercy.

However, this moral issue will eventually be rendered academic by

the fact that the male is gradually eliminating himself. In addition to

engaging in the time-honored and classical wars and race riots, men are

more and more either becoming fags or are obliterating themselves

through drugs. The female, whether she likes it or not, will eventually

take complete charge, if for no other reason than that she will have

to--the male, for practical purposes, won't exist.

Accelerating this trend is the fact that more and more males are

acquiring enlightened self-interest; they're realizing more and more

that the female interest is *their* interest, that they can live only

through the female and that the more the female is encouraged to live,

to fulfill herself, to be a female and not a male, the more nearly *he*

lives; he's coming to see that it's easier and more satisfactory to live

*through* her than to try to *become* her and usurp her qualities, claim

them as his own, push the female down and claim she's a male. The fag,

who accepts his maleness, that is, his passivity and total sexuality,

his femininity, is also best served by women being truly female, as it

would then be easier for him to be male, feminine. If men were wise

they would seek to become really female, would do intensive biological

research that would lead to men, by means of operations on the brain and

nervous system, being able to be transformed in psyche, as well as body,

into women.

Whether to continue to use females for reproduction or to reproduce

in the laboratory will also become academic: what will happen when every

female, twelve and over, is routinely taking the Pill and there are no

longer any accidents? How many women will deliberately get or (if an

accident) remain pregnant? No, Virginia, women don't just adore being

brood mares, despite what the mass of robot, brainwashed women will say.

When society consists of only the fully conscious the answer will be

none. Should a certain percentage of women be set aside by force to

serve as brood mares for the species? Obviously this will not do. The

answer is laboratory reproduction of babies.

As for the issue of whether or not to continue to reproduce males,

it doesn't follow that because the male, like disease, has always

existed among us that he should continue to exist. When genetic control

is possible--and it soon will be--it goes without saying that we should

produce only whole, complete beings, not physical defects or

deficiencies, including emotional deficiencies, such as maleness. Just

as the deliberate production of blind people would be highly immoral, so

would be the deliberate production of emotional cripples.

Why produce even females? Why should there be future generations?

What is their purpose? When aging and death are eliminated, why

continue to reproduce? Why should we care what happens when we're dead?

Why should we care that there is no younger generation to succeed us?

Eventually the natural course of events, of social evolution, will

lead to total female control of the world and, subsequently, to the

cessation of the production of males and, ultimately, to the cessation

of the production of females.

But SCUM is impatient; SCUM is not consoled by the thought that

future generations will thrive; SCUM wants to grab some thrilling living

for itself. And, if a large majority of women were SCUM, they could

acquire complete control of this country within a few weeks simply by

withdrawing from the labor force, thereby paralyzing the entire nation.

Additional measures, any one of which would be sufficient to completely

disrupt the economy and everything else, would be for women to declare

themselves off the money system, stop buying, just loot and simply

refuse to obey all laws they don't care to obey. The police force,

National Guard, Army, Navy and Marines combined couldn't squelch a

rebellion of over half the population, particularly when it's made up of

people they are utterly helpless without.

If all women simply left men, refused to have anything to do with

any of them--ever, all men, the government, and the national economy

would collapse completely. Even without leaving men, women who are

aware of the extent of their superiority to and power over men, could

acquire complete control over everything within a few weeks, could

effect a total submission of males to females. In a sane society the

male would trot along obediently after the female. The male is docile

and easily led, easily subjected to the domination of any female who

cares to dominate him. The male, in fact, wants desperately to be led

by females, wants Mama in charge, wants to abandon himself to her care.

But this is not a sane society, and most women are not even dimly aware

of where they're at in relation to men.

The conflict, therefore, is not between females and males, but

between SCUM--dominant, secure, self-confident, nasty, violent, selfish,

independent, proud, thrill-seeking, free-wheeling, arrogant females, who

consider themselves fit to rule the universe, who have free-wheeled to

the limits of this "society" and are ready to wheel on to something far

beyond what it has to offer--and nice, passive, accepting, "cultivated",

polite, dignified, subdued, dependent, scared, mindless, insecure,

approval-seeking Daddy's Girls, who can't cope with the unknown, who

want to continue to wallow in the sewer that is, at least, familiar, who

want to hang back with the apes, who feel secure only with Big Daddy

standing by, with a big, strong man to lean on and with a fat, hairy

face in the White House, who are too cowardly to face up to the hideous

reality of what a man is, what Daddy is, who have cast their lot with

the swine, who have adapted themselves to animalism, feel superficially

comfortable with it and know no other way of "life", who have reduced

their minds, thoughts and sights to the male level, who, lacking sense,

imagination and wit can have value only in a male "society", who can

have a place in the sun, or, rather, in the slime, only as soothers, ego

boosters, relaxers and breeders, who are dismissed as inconsequents by

other females, who project their deficiencies, their maleness, onto all

females and see the female as a worm.

But SCUM is too impatient to hope and wait for the de-brainwashing

of millions of assholes. Why should the swinging females continue to

plod dismally along with the dull male ones? Why should the fates of

the groovy and the creepy be intertwined? Why should the active and

imaginative consult the passive and dull on social policy? Why should

the independent be confined to the sewer along with the dependent who

need Daddy to cling to?

A small handful of SCUM can take over the country within a year by

systematically fucking up the system, selectively destroying property,

and murder:

SCUM will become members of the unwork force, the fuck-up force;

they will get jobs of various kinds and unwork. For example, SCUM

salesgirls will not charge for merchandise; SCUM telephone operators

will not charge for calls; SCUM office and factory workers, in addition

to fucking up their work, will secretly destroy equipment. SCUM will

unwork at a job until fired, then get a new job to unwork at.

SCUM will forcibly relieve bus drivers, cab drivers and subway token

sellers of their jobs and run buses and cabs and dispense free tokens to

the public.

SCUM will destroy all useless and harmful objects--cars, store

windows, "Great Art", etc.

Eventually SCUM will take over the airwaves--radio and TV

networks--by forcibly relieving of their jobs all radio and TV employees

who would impede SCUM's entry into the broadcasting studios.

SCUM will couple-bust--barge into mixed (male-female) couples,

wherever they are, and bust them up.

SCUM will kill all men who are not in the Men's Auxiliary of SCUM.

Men in the Men's Auxiliary are those men who are working diligently to

eliminate themselves, men who, regardless of their motives, do good, men

who are playing ball with SCUM. A few examples of the men in the Men's

Auxiliary are: men who kill men; biological scientists who are working

on constructive programs, as opposed to biological warfare; journalists,

writers, editors, publishers and producers who disseminate and promote

ideas that will lead to the achievement of SCUM's goals; faggots who, by

their shimmering, flaming example, encourage other men to de-man

themselves and thereby make themselves relatively inoffensive; men who

consistently give things away--money, things, services; men who tell it

like it is (so far not one ever has), who put women straight, who reveal

the truth about themselves, who give the mindless male females correct

sentences to parrot, who tell them a woman's primary goal in life should

be to squash the male sex (to aid men in this endeavor SCUM will conduct

Turd Sessions, at which every male present will give a speech beginning

with the sentence: "I am a turd, a lowly, abject turd," then proceed to

list all the ways in which he is. His reward for so doing will be the

opportunity to fraternize after the session for a whole, solid hour with

the SCUM who will be present. Nice, clean-living male women will be

invited to the sessions to help clarify any doubts and misunderstandings

they may have about the male sex); makers and promoters of sex books and

movies, etc., who are hastening the day when all that will be shown on

the screen will be Suck and Fuck (males, like the rats following the

Pied Piper, will be lured by Pussy to their doom, will be overcome and

submerged by and will eventually drown in the passive flesh that they

are); drug pushers and advocates, who are hastening the dropping out of

men.

Being in the Men's Auxiliary is a necessary but not a sufficient

condition for making SCUM's escape list; it's not enough to do good; to

save their worthless asses men must also avoid evil. A few examples of

the most obnoxious or harmful types are: rapists, politicians and all

who are in their service (campaigners, members of political parties,

etc.); lousy singers and musicians; Chairmen of Boards; Breadwinners;

landlords; owners of greasy spoons and restaurants that play Musak;

"Great Artists"; cheap pikers and welchers; cops; tycoons; scientists

working on death and destruction programs or for private industry

(practically all scientists); liars and phonies; disc jockeys; men who

intrude themselves in the slightest way on any strange female; real

estate men; stock brokers; men who speak when they have nothing to say;

men who loiter idly on the street and mar the landscape with their

presence; double dealers; flim-flam artists; litterbugs; plagiarizers;

men who in the slightest way harm any female; all men in the advertising

industry; psychiatrists and clinical psychologists; dishonest writers,

journalists, editors, publishers, etc.; censors on both the public and

private levels; all members of the armed forces, including draftees (LBJ

and McNamara give orders, but servicemen carry them out) and

particularly pilots (if the bomb drops, LBJ won't drop it; a pilot

will). In the case of a man whose behavior falls into both the good and

bad categories, an overall subjective evaluation of him will be made to

determine if his behavior is, in the balance, good or bad.

It is most tempting to pick off the female "Great Artists", double

dealers, etc. along with the men, but that would be impractical, as

there would be no one left; all women have a fink streak in them, to a

great or lesser degree, but it stems from a lifetime of living among

men. Eliminate men and women will shape up. Women are improvable; men

are not, although their behavior is. When SCUM gets hot on their asses

it'll shape up fast.

Simultaneously with the fucking-up, looting, couple-busting,

destroying and killing, SCUM will recruit. SCUM, then, will consist of

recruiters; the elite corps--the hard core activists (the fuck-ups,

looters and destroyers) and the elite of the elite--the killers.

Dropping out is not the answer; fucking-up is. Most women are

already dropped out; they were never in. Dropping out gives control to

those few who don't drop out; dropping out is exactly what the

establishment leaders want; it plays into the hands of the enemy; it

strengthens the system instead of undermining it, since it is based

entirely on the non-participation, passivity, apathy and non-involvement

of the mass of women. Dropping out, however, is an excellent policy for

men and SCUM will enthusiastically encourage it.

Looking inside yourself for salvation, contemplating your navel, is

not, as the Drop Out people would have you believe, the answer.

Happiness lies outside yourself, is achieved through interacting with

others. Self-forgetfulness should be one's goal, not self-absorption.

The male, capable of only the latter, makes a virtue of an irremediable

fault and sets up self-absorption, not only as a good but as a

Philosophical Good, and thus gets credit for being deep.

SCUM will not picket, demonstrate, march or strike to attempt to

achieve its ends. Such tactics are for nice, genteel ladies who

scrupulously take only such action as is guaranteed to be ineffective.

In addition, only decent, clean-living, male women, highly trained in

submerging themselves in the species, act on a mob basis. SCUM consists

of individuals; SCUM is not a mob, a blob. Only as many SCUM will do a

job as are needed for the job. Also, SCUM, being cool and selfish, will

not subject itself to getting rapped on the head with billy clubs;

that's for the nice, "privileged, educated", middle-class ladies with a

high regard for the touching faith in the essential goodness of Daddy

and policemen. If SCUM 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.

SCUM will always operate on a criminal as opposed to a civil

disobedience basis, that is, as opposed to openly violating the law and

going to jail in order to draw attention to an injustice. Such tactics

acknowledge the rightness of the overall system and are used only to

modify it slightly, change specific laws. SCUM is against the entire

system, the very idea of law and government. SCUM is out to destroy the

system, not attain certain rights within it. Also, SCUM--always

selfish, always cool--will always aim to avoid detection and punishment.

SCUM will always be furtive, sneaky, underhanded (although SCUM murders

will always be known to be such).

Both destruction and killing will be selective and discriminate.

SCUM is against half-crazed, indiscriminate riots, with no clear

objective in mind, and in which many of your own kind are picked off.

SCUM will never instigate, encourage or participate in riots of any kind

or any other form of indiscriminate destruction. SCUM will coolly,

furtively, stalk its prey and quietly move in for the kill. Destruction

will never be such as to block off routes needed for the transportation

of food and other essential supplies, contaminate or cut off the water

supply, block streets and traffic to the extent that ambulances can't

get through or impede the functioning of hospitals.

SCUM will keep on destroying, looting, fucking-up and killing until

the money-work system no longer exists and automation is completely

instituted or until enough women co-operate with SCUM to make violence

unnecessary to achieve these goals, that is, until enough women either

unwork or quit work, start looting, leave men and refuse to obey all

laws inappropriate to a truly civilized society. Many women will fall

into line, but many others, who surrendered long ago to the enemy, who

are so adapted to animalism, to maleness, that they like restrictions

and restraints, don't know what to do with freedom, will continue to be

toadies and doormats, just as peasants in rice paddies remain peasants

in rice paddies as one regime topples another. A few of the more

volatile will whimper and sulk and throw their toys and dishrags on the

floor, but SCUM will continue to steamroller over them.

A completely automated society can be accomplished very simply and

quickly once there is a public demand for it. The blueprints for it are

already in existence, and its construction will only take a few weeks

with millions of people working at it. Even though off the money

system, everyone will be most happy to pitch in and get the automated

society built; it will mark the beginning of a fantastic new era, and

there will be a celebration atmosphere accompanying the construction.

The elimination of money and the complete institution of automation

are basic to all other SCUM reforms; without these two the others can't

take place; with them the others will take place very rapidly. The

government will automatically collapse. With complete automation it

will be possible for every woman to vote directly on every issue by

means of an electronic voting machine in her house. Since the

government is occupied almost entirely with regulating economic affairs

and legislating against purely private matters, the elimination of money

and with it the elimination of males who wish to legislate "morality"

will mean that there will be practically no issues to vote on.

After the elimination of money there will be no further need to kill

men; they will be stripped of the only power they have over

psychologically independent females. They will be able to impose

themselves only on the doormats, who like to be imposed on. The rest of

the women will be busy solving the few remaining unsolved problems

before planning their agenda for eternity and Utopia--completely

revamping educational programs so that millions of women can be trained

within a few months for high level intellectual work that now requires

years of training (this can be done very easily once our educational

goal is to educate and not to perpetuate an academic and intellectual

elite); solving the problems of disease and old age and death and

completely redesigning our cities and living quarters. Many women will

for a while continue to think they dig men, but as they become

accustomed to female society and as they become absorbed in their

projects, they will eventually come to see the utter uselessness and

banality of the male.

The few remaining men can exist out their puny days dropped out on

drugs or strutting around in drag or passively watching the high-powered

female in action, fulfilling themselves as spectators, vicarious livers*

or breeding in the cow pasture with the toadies, or they can go off to

the nearest friendly suicide center where they will be quietly, quickly

and painlessly gassed to death.

Prior to the institution of automation, to the replacement of males

by machines, the male should be of use to the female, wait on her, cater

to her slightest whim, obey her every command, be totally subservient to

her, exist in perfect obedience to her will, as opposed to the

completely warped, degenerate situation we have now of men, not only not

existing at all, cluttering up the world with their ignominious

presence, but being pandered to and groveled before by the mass of

females, millions of women piously worshipping before the Golden Calf,

the dog leading the master on the leash, when in fact the male, short of

being a drag queen, is least miserable when abjectly prostrate before

the female, a complete slave. Rational men want to be squashed, stepped

on, crushed and crunched, treated as the curs, the filth that they are,

have their repulsiveness confirmed.

The sick, irrational men, those who attempt to defend themselves

against their disgustingness, when they see SCUM barreling down on them,

will cling in terror to Big Mama with her Big Bouncy Boobies, but

Boobies won't protect them against SCUM; Big Mama will be clinging to

Big Daddy, who will be in the corner shitting in his forceful, dynamic

pants. Men who are rational, however, won't kick or struggle or raise a

distressing fuss, but will just sit back, relax, enjoy the show and ride

the waves to their demise.

*It will be electronically possible for him to tune in to any

specific female he wants to and follow in detail her every movement.

The females will kindly, obligingly consent to this, as it won't hurt

them in the slightest and it is a marvelously kind and humane way to

treat their unfortunate, handicapped fellow beings.
