I was probably the only person who read this for the sex. Well, I was ten. On second thoughts, I didn't read the sex, I devoured it and read it over and over and over. I can still recall key ideas, the writers denouncing all sorts of bits of pornographic literature, which I thought were just so sexy.

I don't know where it comes from, but in particular there is a line about a girl eagerly attached to the end of a penis being like a hooked fish and no amount of proseltysing in the analysis of how disgraceful this was made it the least bit less of a turn on for me...


The rest of it is all obvious. People equal, blah blah blah. I'm sorry, maybe you don't think this is obvious, but we were brought up with a scrupulous regard for the idea that there are no more or less than people in the world and all are equal. I never had an idea that any person wasn't equal, so it was hard to get really excited about women's lib.

Not least because they did so many stupid things that stuck, like the anti-bra thing. Maybe 6/7 years later I was asked to be involved in some women's event - would I do a chess simul. Oh, by the way, everybody was going to be topless. Like how fucked was that as an idea...let's get bunches of extra men to come and ogle. It struck me as one of the ideas that somehow made a lot of what they were doing sexist.

I agreed to play and had no intention of being topless...I went so far as to wear a see-through top. I won, if the idea was to get the most men. See what I mean? Sexist in big font. ( )

"...This was published in 1970 at the beginning of the Women’s Liberation Movement. It contained a variety of writing by key theoreticians and activists. Along with The Female Eunuch by Germaine Greer and Kate Millett’s Sexual Politics which also appeared in 1970, these books were the rallying cry of the Women’s Liberation Movement and a call to activism in one’s personal and public life..."
