Of Walking Abortion

Album: The Holy Bible (1994)

Songfacts®:

  • The idea for this came from feminist writer Valerie Solanos's S.C.U.M. (Society for Cutting Up Men) manifesto in which she states: "the male chromosome is an incomplete female chromosome. In other words the male is a walking abortion; aborted at the gene stage. To be male is to be deficient, emotionally limited; maleness is a deficient disease and males are emotional cripples." Solanos spent 3 years in jail after she shot Andy Warhol 3 times in 1968. She died in 1988. >>
