Female perversions

March 31, 2013

For a woman to explore and express the fullness of her sexuality,
her emotional and intellectual capacities, would entail
who knows what risks and who knows what truly revolutionary
alteration fo the social conditions that demean and constrain her.

Or she may go on trying to fit herself into the order of the
world and thereby consign herself forever to the bondage
of some stereotype of normal femininity–
a perversion, if you will.
