Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore.
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.
The male 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.
His responses are entirely visceral, not cerebral; his intelligence is a mere tool in the services 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 of what he is and what he isn’t.
To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he’s a machine, a walking dildo.
(He has done a brilliant job of convincing millions of women that men are women and women are men).
Women, in other words, don’t have penis envy; men have pussy envy.
He would rather go out in a blaze of glory than to plod grimly on for fifty more years.
Niceness, Politeness, and `Dignity’: Every man, deep down, knows he’s a worthless piece of shit.
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.
Just think of what you could do with 80 trillion dollars — invest it! And in three years time you’d have 300 trillion dollars!!!
Fatherhood and Mental Illness (fear, cowardice, timidity, humility, insecurity, passivity): His daughter, in addition, he wants sexually — he givers her hand in marriage; the other part is for him.
being garbage, Daddy can make sure that he is respected only by remaining aloof, by distantness.
The effect of fatherhood on females is to make them male.
The effect of fathers, in sum, has been to corrode the world with maleness.
Suppression of Individuality, Animalism (domesticity and motherhood), and Functionalism: The male is just a bunch of conditioned reflexes.
Passive, rattle-headed Daddy’s Girl is easily reduced to a hot water bottle with tits.
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.
In actual fact, the female function is to explore, discover, invent, solve problems crack jokes, make music — all with love.
In other words, create a magic world.
Prevention of Privacy:
Isolation, Suburbs, and Prevention of Community:
every man is an island.
The `hippy’ isn’t quite as strong as the average man.
A true community consists of individuals.
The `hippy’ babbles on about individuality.
Each `hippy’ will, in panic, grad the first simpleton who digs him.
The farthest out male is the drag queen, but he, although different from most men, is exactly like all the other drag queens like the functionalist, he has an identity — he is female.
Authority and Government:
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 ultimate male insight is that life is absurd)
Most men men label the male condition the Human Condition, as a philosophical dilemma.
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.
Competition, Prestige, Status, Formal Education, Ignorance and Social and Economic Classes:
The purpose of `higher’ education is not to educate but to exclude as many as possible from the various professions..
No genuine social revolution can be accomplished by the male.
The male `rebel’ is a farce; this is the male’s `society.’
If women don’t get their asses in gear fast, we may very well all die.
Prevention of Conversation: Male `intellectual conversation’ is a strained compulsive attempt to impress the female.
Daddy’s Girl, she believes she’s grooving on what bores the shit out of her.
Prevention of Friendship (Love): love can’t exist between two males, between a male and a female, or between two females.
Even amongst groovy females.
`Great Art’ and `Culture’:
The vast majority of people are easily conned into believing that obscurity, evasiveness, incomprehensibility, indirectness, ambiguity and boredom are marks of depth and brilliance.
A `male artist’ is a contradiction in terms.
The true artist is every self-confident, healthy female, and in a female society the only Art, the only Culture, will be conceited, kooky, funky, females grooving on each other and on everything else in the universe.
Sexuality: Sex is a gross waste of time.
Boredom: Life, an utter bore.
Secrecy, Censorship, Suppression of Knowledge and Ideas, and Exposes: Every male’s deep-seated, secret, most hideous fear is of being discovered to be not a female, but a male, a subhuman animal.
The bugs up his ass aren’t in him, they’re in Russia.
Hatred and Violence:
Disease and Death:
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.
Eventually the natural course of events, of social evolution, will lead to total female control of the world.
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.
SCUM is too impatient to wait for the de-brainwashing of millions of assholes:
SCUM will become members of the unwork force, the fuck-up force; they will get jobs of various kinds an 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.
Eventually SCUM will take over the airwaves.
SCUM will couple-bust — barge into couples, wherever they are, and bust them up.
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.’
Dropping out is not the answer; fucking-up is.
SCUM will enthusiastically encourage it.
If S SCUM ever strikes, it will be in the dark with a six-inch blade.
SCUM will always be furtive, sneaky, underhanded.
A completely automated society can be accomplished very simply and quickly.
The elimination of money and the complete institution of automation are basic.
Men who are rational 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.
