Monday Afternoon Laugh: HuffPo Contributor Calls For Sex Strike Until Texas Pols Liberate Abortion


Is there any better way to marginalize women’s role in society than asserting that the only power they have to enact change is in their pants?


“A sex strike, sometimes called a sex boycott, is a strike, a method of non-violent resistance in which one or multiple persons refrain from sex with their partner(s) to achieve certain goals. It is a form of temporary sexual abstinence. Sex strikes have been used to protest many issues, from water resources to employment equity.” (Wikipedia)

In Kenya, when violence broke out after political elections a few years back, the women in Kenya stopped having sex with the men until the violence ended. Guess what? The men quit fighting one another. We’ve all been there, attracted to that man who does not mean well for us. We sure would not want our daughters dating or married to these kinds of guys who think they should decide what is best for women. How perfectly patriarchal, these Texas men trying to not hear what women want have shown themselves to be, but how incredibly out of touch with today’s reality. Women of Texas, it’s going to be a long hot summer — make sure the men who do not deeply respect and support women feel it.

As a native Texan, and someone who has survived 100-plus-degree temperatures for many summers, I can tell you, this summer in Texas is surely going to be hotter than usual. Sultry, sweaty summers can be made much nicer when good old-fashioned sex is part of the picture. But women, take heed: Don’t give in if your man, boyfriend, husband, toyboy is not voting for your best interests, your reproductive health — do not sleep with that man! I don’t care how cute or charming he is! I don’t care if he is your husband of many years. Resist! Go swimming! Meditate!

Do not make him dinner, do not go fetch him a cold beer from the fridge, do not iron that shirt, hell, do not change that diaper… do not make his life a little nicer this summer if he does not “get it” and learn to respect women! Instead, volunteer some time for senators like Wendy Davis, go with a group of women to Austin and make your voices heard. Get on the computer and the social networks and organize.

Remember that you live in a state where it would not be unusual (and I have seen it) to see a bumper sticker on a pickup truck which reads, “My Wife Yes, My Dog Maybe, My Gun Never.” Remember what happened last time when a Texas good ole boy governor took that patriarchy all the way to become President of the United States. Stop the damage now and take back Texas.

This may sound a bit extreme and some will say sex should not be used as a “weapon” but let’s get real, this is Texas, and men in Texas who have not woken up and smelled the coffee simply do not deserve any loving. Houston has more strip clubs than libraries. You can buy a gun easier than you can get reproductive health care. There is still a virgin and whore fundamentalist mentality which is more dangerous to women as it often is also promoted by the women themselves. These women, like women who hurt other women everywhere by criticizing and judging them, need to wake up as well. Women hurting other women is suicidal. Women who play into the hand of patriarchy need to be shown the way out of that prison. Wendy Davis and Leticia Van De Putte and others are leading the way.

The real problem will actually be with those men who could care less because deep down they don’t really like women. I don’t mean not like them sexually, I mean they really do not respect nor listen to women. There is a breed of Texas male who simply does not hear women. Women’s voices remind them of terrorists.

    LMAO! Hon, most Texas women love sex just as much as their Texas men do. I suggest you stop telling them to refuse to have sex, or you’re liable to have a whole PASSEL of Texas women camped threateningly on your doorstep! LOL!

  • Alan

    How “feminazi” can they be….lol?! Seriously, like those hot blooded Texas women are going to refrain from sex for such a nonsensical reason. Give me a break!

  • GQ4U

    Half of Americans, 51%, consider abortion morally wrong and 38% say it is morally acceptable according to this Gallup Poll. Polling indicates a clear shift to Pro-Life and away from abortion, so it seems miss Vivian seems has spent too much time in the Texas Sun. It would seem her brain is as shriveled as her ovaries hopefully are.

  • JRR

    Oh, please, liberals! DO stop having sex NOW! It would be the best thing that birthday present ever for America!

    • Russell Hoover

      No [expletive deleted]. Liberals and democraps quite breeding, gays can’t. I don’t see a problem with that. What is a democrat liberal man do cry?

  • jdn

    Its only after the 5th month of pregnancy . Please , if the woman has not figured out if she wants an abortion or not at 5 months along she has worse problems than being pregnant .

  • skptk

    PhD.”focusing” on Globalization and Media Studies?
    “like women who hurt other women everywhere by criticizing and judging them”
    Methinks your focus is on Stupid.

  • Russell Hoover

    I say about the writer along with Davis. World just got better.

  • Dr Moon

    Wendy Davis and the Democrats as usual are basing their entire argument on lies. The bill that she filibustered would have only done two things and neither would stop abortions. The bill would have prevented abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy (five months) and the bill would have required abortion clinics to follow the same safety guidelines as any other medical clinic. I don’t see a problem with either one. Democrats and liberals are dishonest in their debate. If they honestly had women’s best interest at heart why would they object to high standards of cleanliness. Only an ignorant liberal knows.

    For every one that won’t there’s two that well

    When God holds a baby fetus ripped from his mother’s womb whom will he judge, the doctor, the women, the nurse, planned parenthood, the liberals. I suspect God will not be pleased with any of them, now Satin on the other hand!
