Feminists Propose Roe v. Wade Sex Strike

The pussy-hat brigade is wielding a new weapon against Trump (drum roll please): ABSTINENCE. (Yeah, that’ll teach ’em!)

The freak-out over Supreme Court Justice Kennedy’s resignation and President Trump’s pick of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as Kennedy’s replacement has reached new heights.  Although, it seems that it wouldn’t have mattered whom Trump chose to nominate – the left, as always were prepared (well, maybe not always since they do seem to frequently forget portable birth control as shown by their obsession with abortion rights) with pre-printed signs for all the possible picks:

The pussy-hat brigade so fears the overturn of Roe v. Wade that they have decided to resort to extreme measures.  Lead by Jennifer Wright (Harpers Bazaar Political Editor), the new movement is a SEX STRIKE – “#Lysistrata2018”. In a tweet, Wright warns against the reversal of Roe v. Wade and encourages “single and dating” women to add a female judge emoji to their dating profiles to show they won’t date or sleep with anyone who is pro-life.

(Don’t worry if you don’t get the “Lysistrata” reference – I had to look it up, too.  It is a play by Aristophanes.  According to SparkNotes: “Lysistrata has planned a meeting between all of the women of Greece to discuss the plan to end the Peloponnesian War…Lysistrata plans to ask the women to refuse sex with their husbands until a treaty for peace has been signed.)

Others jumped on board:

It seems that this movement might help to solve part of the abortion issue.  As my 13 year old daughter says, “If you don’t want to get pregnant, don’t have sex.” (Thank you Indiana schools’ health education!) This sentiment was also expressed by Twitter users.

The irony of the “sex strike” movement seemed to be lost on the pussy-hat brigade, but not on the pro-life commentators.

And finally, a little encouragement on how to use a similar concept on the #AbolishIce movement:
