lyrics

"Monroe’s premature death raised one haunting question for the men who were, in their own fantasy, her lovers, for the men who had masturbated over those pictures of exquisite female compliance: was it possible, could it be, that she hadn’t liked It all along – It – the It they had been doing to her, how many millions of times."

- Andrea Dworkin, 1983: 18

Just before she died
She wrote: “I must not be”
Now we know her perfect smiles had just been masks
Covering rage, despair; a sense of failure

When she closed her eyes
She thought: “It’s time to leave”
Now we know she had not liked our invasions
Suffering, trying to achieve perfection

As we define it for them
A male-defined woman ideal
“Exquisite” female compliance
A sexual commodity

Now today, we do the same
And they spread their legs for fame
And we click, masturbating over pictures
Giving up, forcing them to seek perfection

As we define it for them
A male-defined woman ideal
“Exquisite” female compliance
A sexual commodity
