Nomi. 20. Fuck off.

“The basic premise about women is that we are born to be fucked. That is it. Now, that means a lot of things. For a lot of years it meant that marriage was outright ownership of a woman’s body and intercourse was a right of marriage. That meant that intercourse was per se an act of force, because the power of the state mandated that the woman accept intercourse. She belonged to the man. The cultural remnant of this is that in our society, men experience intercourse as possession of women. The culture talks about intercourse as conquest—women surrendering, women being taken. This is a paradigm for rape, not a paradigm for reciprocity, equality, mutuality, or freedom. When the premise is that women exist on earth in order to be sexually available to men for intercourse, it means that our very bodies are seen as having boundaries that have less integrity than male bodies do. Men have orifices; men can be penetrated. The point of homophobia is to direct men toward women, to punish men for not using women. Homophobia is an acknowledgment of how aggressive and how dangerous men know male sexuality can be for women. When a woman goes into court and she says, “I’ve been raped,” the judge, the defense lawyer, the press, and many other people say: no, you had intercourse. And she says, “No, I was raped.” And they say a little bit of force is fine. It’s still true. It hasn’t changed. When you look at male domination as a social system, what you see is that it is organized to make certain that women are sexually available for men. That is its basic premise. We have a choice, and the choice is not in the political science books. The universities are not trying to work out this level of choice for us. The question is, What comes first, men’s need to get laid or women’s dignity? And I am telling you that you cannot separate the so-called abuses of women from the so-called normal uses of women. The history of women in the world as sexual chattel makes it impossible to do that.”


Life and Death Contrasted (c.1770)
A striking image from the British engraver and publisher Valentine Green, illustrating the idea that life, with all its frivolity and distractions (symbolised by the romance novel, parlour games, and high society lady in all her finery) is in fact – echoing the sentiment of Ecclesiastes (quoted on the obelisk) – nothing but “vanity”, all lives as they do inevitably ending in death.
