Upon finishing Cunt A Declaration of Independence, I ve arrived at a surprising conclusion I ve been a feminist for years and I was quite possibly the last one to know about it.This book to me was just a big pleasant surprise Probably the most interesting result of reading it was coming to the realization that I clearly had a pretty limited picture of what feminism was really about I viewed feminists in general as people who were very aggressive, pretty anti male all aroun

This book is appallingly bad I bought it for a couple of reasons First, I am about to teach Lady Chatterly s Lover for the first time, and I thought any book that makes the case for widespread use of cunt was an important bit of prep for D.H Lawrence s infamous classic Second, I was under the impression that the book delivered an overview of the etymology of cunt Third and last, I read Betty Dodson s introduction and was led to believe that Cunt A Declaration of Independence was the kin This book is appallingly bad I bought it for a couple of reasons First,
