    The SCUM Manifesto advocates the elimination of men from society, more by not having any new males than by genocide however.

    Yup, pretty much.  You can argue the minutea of it, but for the most part it was a genocidal publication against men.  Sadly, mainstream feminism accepted Valerie in their fold.  Women's studies courses to this day study the SCUM manifesto.

    Valerie Solanas (the author) was canonized as a feminist hero upon her death when Ti-Grace Atkinson (the then president of NOW) and other feminists proclaimed Valerie Solanas to be a feminist hero "the first outstanding champion of women's rights." and "one of the most important spokeswomen of the feminist movement."  Note that this is in complete contradiction to how many faux-feminists today attempt to distance themselves from her, against the very dictates of prominent feminists that hold power, and the actual feminist movement NOW.

    The SCUM Manifesto advocates the elimination of men from society, more by not having any new males than by genocide however.  It recognizes that when the purge begins some men will be necessary for a while to do the hard, difficult things women can't or won't do.

    You can read it here and decide for yourself - https://www.ccs.neu.edu/home/shivers/rants/scum.ht...

    Do remember that Valerie Solanas was profoundly mentally ill and in no way represented the feminist agenda of her time. Comparing her to the average feminist of the late 1960's would be like comparing all men's rights advocates to Elliot Rodger. Sometimes mentally ill people just latch onto causes they don't really understand.

    Yes. We read that in my women’s studies class.  Very inspiring.

    The acronym SCUM stands for Society for Cutting Up Men.

    “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.” ― Valerie Solanas, SCUM Manifesto

    And on a side note, this following quote shows a profound ignorance of genetics. 

    “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.” ― Valerie Solanas, SCUM Manifesto

    The Y chromosomes has more than 80 unique genes on it and is not in any sort of way an incomplete X chromosome. 

    And it's utterly laughable to suggest that women will overthrow a government. lol

    She also ironically benefited from a court system that panders to women by only getting three years in prison for attempted murder.
