The Politics of Pussy
In a country that dubs itself “the leader of the free world,” having a pussy is never a good thing.
Being in possession of a pussy in America means you live beneath an ever-thickening glass ceiling. It means you can be the victim of a brutal rape and if your rapist is a promising male athlete, you’ll have the privilege of watching him walk away from taking responsibility for his “two minutes of action” via a legal system designed by and controlled by penises.
Being in possession of a pussy in America means you are not allowed to choose what happens to it. Your pussy is regulated, ruled on and controlled by a population of people who don’t even know what it’s like to have a pussy.
