belly of a starving child:
swollen,
filled with nothing the body can use.

Women have been taught that, for us,
the earth is flat,

Some of us have ventured out nevertheless,

It is my faith, my feminist faith, that we will not.

slut of the universe; but she never becomes herself
because it is forbidden for her to do so.
- Andrea Dworkin

ravaged femininity no longer sustains it -
only then will we know what it is to be free.

it is the political defense of women hating.

You are not going to live in the world you want to live in.
- Andrea Dworkin
