Transcript continued from page 1 and enfibu- lation— sewing up the vagina. The mutilations have been going on in the Sudan "since the time of the Pharoahs and are routinely inflicted on girls between the ages of 5 and 15. The medical complications include scarring, infection, shock, cysts, sterility, painful coitus, and often the impossibility of orgasm during one's life. The psychological damage can only be imagined. Bringing her story closer to home, Millett told of an incredibly sexist American forefather—a medical man named Morris. "He decided that white Aryans had smaller clitorises than other races. This with zilch evidence or research. Since he was also a racist—it's really easy to be several of these things at once—he looked forward to the time when nature would abolish the clitoris as civilization advanced." Finally, Kate discussed our own view of our sexuality. "I think the first way we experience female sexuality is we see it as a way to make a living. That's really a crummy thing to have to say. But it is how we have been forced to survive throughout history And the burden of children, lack of skills, and discrimination in the job market make a husband still the best way to earn a living." Kate then praised The Hite Report: "Brilliant Heterosexuality is an enormous rip-off to large numbers of women Women like sex. They want it. The thing is, they're not getting very much and it's substandard." "WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THE ESSENCE OF CARNALITY, AND WE HAVEN'T EVEN BEEN GETTING OFF ON IT. "Now," she said with a twinkle in eye, "we are taking things into our hands. And, as women discover our sexuality, we are discovering each her own own others'. "Because of the greater orgasmic potential of women, sex with other women is almost logical You have two types who could go on forever." She quoted one of Hite's respondents: "The very naturalness of lesbianism and homosexuality is exactly the cause of the strong social and legal rules against it." continued on back cover We publish Pointblank Times as often as possible.
