But let’s not be fooled: this hatred of men, despite their having it in them, these pseudo-feminists, supposes a deeper misogyny — leave our women alone, they are ours, we keep them, we protect them, we monitor them, we watch over their virginity, their sexuality, their desires — just this misogyny as was claimed by the oldest of religious taboos. But like any taboo, its reversed to its contrary: women must not be touched, why? Because she is inferior, cursed, seductive, a slave and, to finish it off, a slut! (In accord with Baudelaire’s adage, that women will censor: “The woman wants to be screwed.”) I will not make it an offense for lesbians to believe that, together, all women also defend this position. That some of them speak out, not on behalf of lesbians in general — there is no such thing — but to make also heard one “autre parole.”
