Woman self-induces miscarriage, calls it art

The reality of miscarriage is very much a linguistic and political reality, an act of reading constructed by an act of naming -- an authorial act. It is the intention of this piece to destabilize the locus of that authorial act, and in doing so, reclaim it from the heteronormative structures that seek to naturalize it.

Reason number 2,767 why art shouldn't be taught at universities. Bring back the atelier. Please.
