Misanthropic feminists are at it again. HuffPo’s Vivian Norris just suggested a sex strike in Texas to pressure male voters into giving in to the feminist agenda (aka abortion on demand – er, “women’s healthcare.”)
Deeply disgruntled that Texas might pass a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks, Norris urged Texas women to force men to vote for pro-choice agendas in the future by refusing to have intercourse with them this summer. “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!” ranted Norris. “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!”
Much of her article was spent praising radical pro-abortion legislator Wendy Davis and decrying Texas as a “patriarchal” society where “men still run the show,” and oppress women. “Men in Texas who have not woken up and smelled the coffee simply do not deserve any loving,” she raved. “... I mean they really do not respect nor listen to women,” she went on, “There is a breed of Texas male who simply does not hear women. Women's voices remind them of terrorists.”
“You can buy a gun easier than you can get reproductive health care,” she whined (because feminists are grumpy about how it’s so much harder to kill a baby than to buy a gun in Texas). She threw in a jab at President Bush for good measure: “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.”
What about Texas pro-life women? Apparently they’re just oppressed by the patriarchy and that’s the only reason they fight for the lives of children in the womb or encourage chastity: “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,” insisted Norris.
So apparently, she thinks the screaming mob that blocked the abortion bill last time around wasn’t quite radical enough. But feminists are all about power, so it’s not really a shocker that feminists would want to use sex as a power weapon. Because using your sexuality to manipulate people doesn’t objectify or degrade women at all. Right?
