“The monstrous-feminine which includes violent myths such as: Medusa, the vampire, and “vagina dentata serves as a marker of the animalistic and female sexual predator which is modified, or indeed re-humanized, in discourse which attempt to reclaim the active rather than the passive female body (in heterosexual relations).
The male fear of the monstrous body, is his inability to control that body within the realm of male sexuality as well as Black female sexual authorship.”
