King Kong Theory, by Virginie Despentes

23.95

“Feminist theory slash autobiography slash literary trash talk that outlines the quagmire-like conditions for women in the twenty-first century. These essays tackle rape, pornography, prostitution, capitalism, and heterosexuality, while Despentes keeps laying down raw condensed truths. On France's leaders wanting police in the schools: ‘A state that conceives of itself as an all powerful mother is a fascistic state.’ On women watching pornography: ‘What relationship can you have with yourself if you systematically hand your genitals over to someone else?’ On sex appeal: ‘I like myself as I am, more desiring than desirable.’ These essays vibrate with the provocation that widespread sexual freedom is at hand.”
