It’s not the first time Dems have called for a Lysistrata strategy – remember how they called for liberals to pledge not to sleep with anyone who opposed ObamaCare? – so, once again, the “Progressive” party who haven’t had a new or original idea in years (or centuries, if they’re going back to ancient Greek plays) is calling for a “sex strike” against those evil men who refuse to choose the Constitution over paying for college students to have unlimited sex.
In light of the recent war on women, we are calling for a nationwide sex strike from April 28th to May 5th. All women should withhold from having sex with their partners.
It’s amazing how much stupid is just in those two sentences. The claim of a “war on women” is a downright lie, the one-week duration of the strike shouldn’t hurt anyone who isn’t exactly what Rush Limbaugh said they were, and the “all women should” directive makes the usual naïve leftist assumption that “all women” are leftists who believe and do whatever their leftie leaders tell them to do, being incapable of forming their own opinions or making their own choices – and that all men, on the other hand, are evil oppressors who must be struck against. I don’t think I even need go into the heteronormativity on display.
Obviously, most people are not taking this seriously (if they’ve even heard of it at all), as the comments on their Facebook page show. Any hardcore leftie woman likely to subscribe to this strike probably wasn’t sleeping with social conservatives anyway, nor would most social conservatives want to sleep with the lefties who’d join the “strike”; so, like so many liberal gestures, this one may get them to feel all kinds of clever and superior but will accomplish precisely nothing.
