    The man hating Valerie Solanas in real life was more interesting than the overrated Andy Warhol. Valerie seemed to really hate men. A lot of that due to her mental illness and paranoid schizophrenia. She was very smart, but suffered a lot mentally. She had a rough life. Lived poorly, homeless and as a prostitute for much of her life. Alone for most of her later life. Valerie's is a sad story. Her SCUM Manifesto is her treatise on men and women. I wonder if you could show Valerie her whole life in advance and ask her if she wanted to do it all over again, would she want to do it the same ? I think not. As for Andy Warhol ? Talentless Overrated media hack. Andy showed that anything can be art. If everyone thought that was a profound relevation, they must have been dropping too much acid.

    The sad story of hate twisting another mind into thinking that more hate is the answer to all your problems.   (Sigh)   I've got a riddle for all feminists and SJWs out there;   Why is it that, if no one truly WANTS to hate someone, their hate is one of the most painful things to let go of?   Give up?   The answer is because HATE IS A DRUG.  This woman was high on her own hate and she used Warhol as a focal point to intensify it.   When you drown yourself in something that gives you a momentary blissful high or winds you up (and don't deny hate doesn't do exactly that) it gets impossible to let go of.  You, in fact, go into withdrawal without it and feel incomplete unless you feel that feeling every moment.   The worst thing you can do is act on this need instead of trying to break free of it.
