  • "That old black anarchist between our legs doesn't think your way, massa, doesn't prevaricate with reason, sahib, she just feels, and one day she's going to recognise your calloused old dick, and her toothless mouth will turn to steel and close and close and close in a new orgasm, pulp up your foolish tassel, pulverise, homogenise, vitamise you, gulp you up and shit you out forever. Give it up, you with the scars on your thighs, give up the war game."
    - 'Dear John', Germaine Greer, circa 1969.
