Feminist Wisdom from Sarah Connor

Watching Terminator 2, I stumbled upon an awesome quote. After the terminator explains to Miles Dyson how he contributes to the end of civilization, Sarah Connor drops some feminist wisdom on his ass–


Miles DysonI feel like I’m gonna throw up. You’re judging me for things that I haven’t even done yet. How are we supposed to know?
Sarah Connor: Yeah, right. How are you supposed to know? Fucking men like you built the hydrogen bomb. Men like you thought it up. You think you’re so creative. You don’t know what it’s like to really create something; to create a life; to feel it growing inside you. All you know how to create is death and destruction…

This is the basis for for feminist theories on the roots of misogyny. Confronted with the raw power of women’s ability to give life, misogynists are threatened and must destroy women. Whether through debasement or physical annihilation, women must be  rendered non-threatening. Misogynists still want to control our wombs. I say,

“Over my dead body.”
