Betty is a huge truthout.org fan and when they called over the summer for an interview it was a resounding "yes".
Thank you, Melissa Gira Grant, for doing the best interview with Betty to date. She starts off quoting Betty and includes two "fucks", covers the good girl vs. bad girl dichotomy of the feminist movement, how Eve Ensler cribbed Betty's bodysex workshops in The Vagina Monologues (noting it should be the "vulva" monologues), and finished with the need to focus on women's sexual pleasure.
My favorite Q&A:
MGG: But it's all of a piece - all these people who are profoundly hostile to women having any power in their lives.
BD: Let's name them: ignorant fundamentalist Christians for the most part with some conservative Republicans thrown in. When I was shopping the memoir that's had several different titles, I changed it from My Sexual Revolution to My Romantic Love Wars, because that's what's going on today.
We are at war with men, and most women don't even know it. The first thing the male establishment wants to control is uterus and birth. You might call it womb envy. But even worse is the fact we are still using the male model of sexual response for women. Vaginal penetration only doesn't work for most of us. And we're not all meant to be monogamous either, especially since women are capable of having far more sex than men. Try to get that fact across in America!
