Right back at you, Juan Terranova!

This week's Maurice Vellacott Award goes to Argentine writer Juan Terranova who defends his *right* (and that of all men) to verbally threaten and sexually terrorize women. He claims there's a
"beautiful richness to obscene language." Terranova, who some view as one of the newly appeared voices in Argentine contemporary Literature, goes so far as to call for "the revindication of the cat call as a minor literary genre."

We're not coy, pearl-clutching damsels here at DAMMIT JANET! We think that you deserve the same opportunity that you wished to personally inflict upon the feminist activist, Inti Maria Tidball-Binz.

Juan, here's hoping that you'll soon meet a virile, muscled, hairy and MASSIVELY endowed Macho Man and that he'll growl in your ear that he "would love to rape you in the ass".

There's such a beautiful richness in the obscenity of that threat language - don't you see, Juan?
