The Art of Packaging: Pulps – All Women are Bad

According to these novels women are “So young, so wanton, so wise in the failings of men”, “Lovely, Willing and Wanton” and their “… pagan desires violated even the loose moral code of the marshlands”. They’re either a “Bitch” an “Office Hussy”, “Office Tramp”, “Nympho Librarian” or a “Cracker Girl”. You’d think these dames didn’t stand a chance, but by the looks of things (and personal experience), they are totally in control and, as always, totally drivin’ the bus.  These probably were written as a reaction to womens’ rights in the 50’s and 60’s – remember, if you can’t understand something, the best thing to do is call it a name or insult it. Why else would there possibly be a book called The Bitch or Office Tramp. Also, apparently, women are even more dangerous dead than alive – according to Spider Lily by Bruno Fisher, so be careful.
