Secrets of V's Gender

Haley: I do feel, Roy, that any Anti-Imperialist group like ours must reflect such a divergence of interests within its power-base.

Roy: Agreed. Durkon?

Durkon: Yeah. I think Haley's point of view is very valid, Roy, provided the Movement never forgets that it is the inalienable right of every man—

Vaarsuvius: Or woman.

Durkon: Or woman… to rid himself—

Vaarsuvius: Or herself.

Durkon: Or herself.

Roy: Agreed.

Durkon: Thank you, brother.

Vaarsuvius: Or sister.

Durkon: Or sister. Where was I?

Roy: I think you'd finished.

Durkon: Oh. Right.

Roy: Furthermore, it is the birthright of every man—

Vaarsuvius: Or woman.

Roy: Why don't you shut up about women, V. You're putting us off.

Vaarsuvius: Women have a perfect right to play a part in our movement, Roy.

Durkon: Why are you always on about women, Vaarsuvius?

Vaarsuvius: I want to be one.

Roy: What?

Vaarsuvius: I want to be a woman. From now on, I want you all to call me 'Loretta'.

Roy: What?!

Vaarsuvius: It's my right as a man.

Haley: Well, why do you want to be Loretta, 'Suvie?

Vaarsuvius: I want to have babies.

Roy: You want to have babies?!

Vaarsuvius: It's every man's right to have babies if he wants them.

Roy: But… you can't have babies.

Vaarsuvius: Don't you oppress me.

Roy: I'm not oppressing you, V. You haven't got a womb! — Where's the fetus going to gestate?! You going to keep it in a box?!

Vaarsuvius: [crying]

Haley: Here! I— I've got an idea. Suppose you agree that he can't actually have babies, not having a womb, which is nobody's fault, not even the Goblins', but that he can have the right to have babies.

Durkon: Good idea, Haley. We shall fight the oppressors for your right to have babies, brother. Sister. Sorry.

Roy: What's the point?

Durkon: What?

Roy: What's the point of fighting for his right to have babies when he can't have babies?!

Durkon: It is symbolic of our struggle against oppression.

Roy: Symbolic of his struggle against reality.
