Freebase

  1. Intercourse

    Intercourse is a radical feminist analysis of sexual intercourse in literature and society, written by Andrea Dworkin. Intercourse is often said to argue that "all heterosexual sex is rape", based on the line from the book that says "violation is a synonym for intercourse." However, Dworkin has denied this interpretation, stating, "What I think is that sex must not put women in a subordinate position. It must be reciprocal and not an act of aggression from a man looking only to satisfy himself. That's my point."

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Intercourse

    in′tėr-kōrs, n. connection by dealings: communication: commerce: communion: coition. [O. Fr. entrecours—L. intercursus, a running between—inter, between, currĕre, cursum, to run.]

You underage drink and steal booze but you say I'm the bad guy. You do drugs and steroids and you call me evil. Your irresponsible and get pregnant at 15 and you say I'm abusing the system. You bully people everyday and then when they go on a massacre you call them monsters and evil but really your the monster, your the evil one for bullying them and harming them and forcing them into causing a massacre. You spray paint stop signs, you vandalize public and private property but you call me a delinquent.
